Carrasco appealing six-game suspension
BOSTON -- Indians pitcher Carlos Carrasco has been suspended for six games and fined an undisclosed amount for intentionally throwing near the head of Kansas City's Billy Butler in Friday's game against the Royals.

Carrasco is appealing the suspension and will make his regularly scheduled start on Wednesday in Boston.

"That's pretty standard for when something like that happens," said manager Manny Acta. "So he's appealing and he'll be able to pitch [in Boston], and we'll go from there."

After starting the year 8-4 with a 3.54 ERA, Carrasco has lost five straight, having allowed at least three earned runs in each start.
