Corey Kluber and Carlos Carrasco: Rough season so far

Corey Kluber and Carlos Carrasco had been incredible in the seasons prior to the recent 2019 one. Meanwhile, in the 2019 campaign, both Kluber and Carrasco had an unexpectedly rough time. Carrasco was diagnosed with leukaemia, so he had to miss a large portion of the season. However, he made an inspiring return at the start of September 2019. On the other hand, Corey Kluber missed the final few months of MLB as he was suffering from a fractured right forearm. Before getting injured, Corey Kluber, who is a two-time Cy Young winner, bloated 5.80 ERA over seven starts and 35 2/3 innings. Even as the last season was a struggle for Kluber and Carrasco, teams won’t stop from trying to have a trade, looking into their statistics. They are the current top free agents.
