Carlos Carrasco Makes Return From Leukemia 

Post#1 » by RealGM Wiretap » Sun Sep 1, 2019 9:35 pm

Carlos Carrasco made his return to the mound from leukemia Sunday and the Indians pitcher was applauded by both teams in a touching scene during Tampa Bay\'s 8-2 victory that completed a three-game sweep.

The right-hander entered in the seventh inning for his first major league appearance since being diagnosed with a treatable form of leukemia in June. He received a standing ovation from the Tropicana Field crowd, and players from both sides cheered while standing in front of their respective dugouts.
