CLEVELAND– Cleveland Indians’ pitcher Carlos Carrasco was injured during the first inning of Saturday afternoon’s game against the Tigers.

Detroit second baseman Ian Kinsler hit a line drive up the middle, strikingĀ Carrasco in his pitching hand. He came out after throwing just two pitches.

The Indians said Carrasco suffered a non-displaced fracture of his right pinky finger. There is no timetable for his return.

Jeff Manship was called to the mound in his place.

The Indians’ starting rotation already took a hit when Danny Salazar strained him forearm. He’s expected to return in two to three weeks. Catcher Yan Gomes is likely out for the rest of the season with a broken right wrist.

The Tribe beat the Tigers Friday night, 11-4. Mike Napoli had four RBIs, including a two-run homer in the fifth inning.
