Indians’ Carrasco Suspended Eight MLB Games for Hitting Youkilis

April 12 (Bloomberg) -- Cleveland Indians pitcher Carlos Carrasco was suspended for eight games by Major League Baseball for throwing at and hitting New York Yankees third baseman Kevin Youkilis.

Carrasco, who was demoted to the Indians’ Triple-A minor-league affiliate earlier this week, will begin serving the suspension when he is recalled to the major leagues, MLB Senior Vice President of Standards and On-Field Operations Joe Garagiola Jr. said today in an e-mailed release. Should Carrasco file an appeal, the discipline will be delayed until that process is complete.

Carrasco was ejected from the game against the Yankees on April 9 after hitting Youkilis in the shoulder. The Indians were trailing 7-0 and Carrasco had just given up a home run to Robinson Cano.

The 26-year-old Carrasco began the season on suspension for hitting a batter two years ago. He missed the 2012 season due to injury.
