The official word out of Reading is that Carlos Carrasco "felt something" after throwing two pitches in his bullpen session prior to a start tonight against New Britain. So it doesn't sound like the righthander was scratched so that he could pitch Friday against the Mets.. But it also means he is still an option. If he isn't hurt. Which would be another story in itself.
Long story short, Carrasco isn't starting tonight.
So at the moment, he is still an option to start Friday.
We'll let you know as we hear more. . .
