Luck doesn’t appear to be on Carlos Carrasco’s side.
The Indians announced Sunday the right-handed pitcher was placed on the 10-day DL after he was diagnosed with an elbow contusion.

Lefty Tyler Olson was also placed on the 10-day DL and pitchers Shane Bieber and Evan Marshall were recalled from Triple-A Columbus in corresponding moves.
Carrasco was hit hard on the elbow by a line drive from Twins designated hitter Joe Mauer in the second inning of Saturday’s game.
It’s the third time he’s been injured by a hit in the past four seasons. He took a hit to the face in 2015, but didn’t miss any time. He was also hit hard in the elbow in 2016 and missed the rest of the season.
Before the injury, Carrasco was 8-5 with a 4.24 ERA and 1.17 WHIP.
