Indian Carrasco launcher being treated for leukemia

The Indians who throw pitcher Carlos Carrasco are being treated for leukemia.

Carrasco made the revelation to a television station during a visit to the Dominican Republic, where he visited a hospital. Carrasco, who was diagnosed with a blood disorder in June, remains positive about his prognosis and believes he will launch again this season.

The 32-year-old right-hander felt lethargic in May and told CDN doctors that they "saw something different in my blood."

The Indians have not commented on the diagnosis of Carrasco.

Carrasco has become one of the most consistent pitchers in the American League in recent years. He won 17 games last season and went 18-6 in 2017 when he finished fourth in the AL Cy Young Award voting.

He has been with Cleveland since 2009. The Indians signed him with a four-year, $ 47 million contract in December.
