With all of the latest positive news, it seems like the New York Mets are on the cusp of finally getting past the injury woes they kicked off the 2021 season with. One of those injuries has been to starting pitcher Carlos Carrasco, who hasn't seen the field this year with a hamstring tear.

Well, it looks like New York has some great news on Carrasco's latest injury update. The 34-year-old veteran starting pitcher threw in live game action in a Mets uniform for the first time since being traded from the Cleveland Indians.

Granted, this start came in the form of a rehab assignment with New York's High-A Brooklyn. Nonetheless, this is amazing news for New York.

Carlos Carrasco Injury Update

Carrasco threw two scoreless innings against the Jersey Shore BlueClaws on Thursday, recording two strikeouts and allowing just one bloop single. This included a 1-2-3 first inning and 27 pitches.

New York owns the fourth-best team ERA in all of baseball with their 3.43 mark. It's certainly going to make things easier to add a solid starting pitcher such as Carrasco back in the mix.

The Mets currently sit atop the NL East standings with their 47-40 record and own the fifth-best odds (+900) to win the World Series on FanDuel Sportsbook. Adding reliable, veteran arms to the starting rotation is always a key for a deep postseason run in October.
