The Indians pitcher was struck on the right side of the face with a line drive hit by Chicago's Melky Cabrera in the first inning of Cleveland's 4-1 loss to the White Sox and is grateful it wasn't worse.
Carrasco was carted off the field after he was knocked down by the liner that glanced off his glove and right hand before smacking him on the right side of the face. The right-hander crumpled to the ground in front of the mound as manager Terry Francona and a trainer quickly raced out to check on him.
After lying on the ground for a few minutes, Carrasco was helped to his feet by two Indians trainers before walking slowly to the cart holding the left side of his face. As he was driven off, he was given a warm ovation by Cleveland fans.
