Cleveland, OH (92.3 The Fan) - Cleveland Indians right-handed starter Carlos Carrasco (right elbow constusion) and left-handed reliever Tyler Olson (left latissimus dorsi strain) were each placed on the 10-day disabled list Sunday. In corresponding moves, righties Shane Bieber and Evan Marshall were both recalled from Triple-A Columbus.

Carrasco was struck by a line drive on his elbow during the 2nd inning of his start on Saturday, and was removed from the game. The righty will undergo imaging on Monday to determine whether there is a fracture in the arm. The 31-year-old was in attendance at Progressive Field on Sunday.

"I guess the way they described it to me later was that he’ll be treated the same exact way for the next two days regardless," Manager Terry Francona said. "They’re just going to try to get the swelling down and take care of some of the trauma. He’ll get a scan tomorrow at 10, and then we hope to know exactly what’s going on in there. Or what isn’t going on. But for the next two days he’d be treated the same anyway."

Carrasco is carrying a 4.24 ERA through 15 starts, with a 3.40 FIP.

Olson has been dealing with the lat strain for some time according to Francona, attempting to play through the injury. The lefty has has allowed four earned runs on five hits in his last four appearances, spanning just 1 1/3 innings.

"It’s been bothering him for a while now and he didn’t say anything and I think now he’s kind of kicking himself," Francona added.
