Fausto Carmona was sent to the Indians Rookie League team in Arizona on Saturday. That's right, Rookie League.
The Cleveland Indians' starting pitcher has been struggling since his 17 win 2007 season. Last year, Carmona was 8-7 with a 5.44 ERA. This year, he has been just as bad, leading the American League in walks, with a 2-6 record, and an ERA over seven.
Fausto was moved from the bullpen to the starting rotation in 2006, where he had one good year in the Tribe's "miracle" season.
The organization looks to get him some basic work to regain composure and confidence in the "starter" league.
Look for him to be back sometime right before, or after, the All-Star break.
