CareerEdit

Carrasco was signed as an undrafted free agent on November 25, 2003 by the Philadelphia Phillies. In 2006, Carrasco spent the entire season at the Single-A level with the Lakewood BlueClaws, compiling a 2.26 ERA in 159.1 innings pitched. He split time in 2007 between the Single-A Clearwater Threshers and the Double-A Reading Phillies. Carrasco compiled a 2.84 ERA in 69.2 innings pitched at Clearwater and a 4.86 ERA in 70.1 innings pitched with Reading. Carrasco threw his first no-hitter on August 21, 2007. He was on the World roster of the 2006[1] , 2007[2] , and 2008[3] All-Star Futures Games.

Entering the 2007 season, Carrasco was ranked as the top prospect in the Phillies organization[4] and the 41st-best prospect in baseball.[5] He was still ranked as the top prospect in the Phillies system entering 2008,[6] and is listed as having the organization's best fastball and changeup.

On July 29, the Phillies traded Carrasco, along with Jason Donald, Lou Marson, and Jason Knapp to the Cleveland Indians for Cliff Lee and Ben Francisco.[7]
