Mets' Carlos Carrasco: Injures hamstring in workout
Carrasco strained his right hamstring while doing conditioning work following Thursday's bullpen session, according to SNY's game broadcast.The team hasn't yet announced any further details about the injury, which came after a successful live bullpen session in the morning for Carrasco, who had been dealing with soreness in his right elbow. He's headed for an MRI, but regardless of his test results, it's now highly probable that Carrasco won't be ready for Opening Day, creating a temporary opening in the Mets' rotation.
Mets' Carlos Carrasco: Throws simulated game
Carrasco (elbow) threw a simulated game Thursday, Mike Puma of the New York Post reports.Carrasco has yet to make his spring debut as he works through a spell of elbow soreness. He's been building up in his throwing progression, advancing from catch to bullpens to a simulated game, so Grapefruit League action should be on tap soon. Time is getting tight for him to be fully ramped up by Opening Day, but it remains possible that he breaks camp on the active roster.
Mets' Carlos Carrasco: Not expected to miss time
Carrasco (elbow) is expected to be ready for his first turn in the rotation, Anthony DiComo of MLB.com reports.Carrasco hasn't yet pitched in a Grapefruit League game as he builds up cautiously due to elbow soreness. He threw a 20-pitch simulated game Thursday and should be ready to face another team soon. Opening Day is just two weeks away, so it would be somewhat surprising if he were ready to throw 100 pitches in his first regular-season start, but he should be built up to the point that he can throw a meaningful number of innings right away if he gets through the rest of the month without setbacks.
