Cleveland, OH (92.3 The Fan) – The MRI on Carlos Carrasco's left knee came back negative, which is great news for the Indians. He left Tuesday's game against Miami after four innings after falling on his knee while trying to cover first base.

"I just went down with a bruise and that's it," Carrasco said. "I'm able to walk and do my routine. It's just a little bit sore because I hit the ground really good."

The 32-year-old expects to make his next start and has been cleared to continue his normal routine. 

"He'll be ready for Sunday," manager Terry Francona said. 

That's great news for the Indians, who couldn't afford to lose another starting pitcher. Carrasco's next scheduled start is Sunday in Houston.
