Carrasco had been working as a starting pitcher with the Bisons. He took a no-hit bid into the sixth inning in his most recent outing, Wednesday against the Pirates’ Triple-A affiliate Indianapolis. Overall, Carrasco was 2-3 with a 3.47 ERA in nine appearances (eight starts) with Buffalo. He allowed 46 hits and 17 walks while striking out 37 in 46 2/3 innings.
Terry Collins said he like Thayer's fastball and changeup, and that he needed to work on his slider to return and be effective.
