CLEVELAND — Everyone needs a friend like Carlos Carrasco in their life. He showed up to support his fellow teammates during the 2019 MLB Home Run Derby Game at Progressive Field on Monday.

His support for his friends and teammates is one of the reasons why everyone in Cleveland loves him.

The Cleveland Indians said it best. "If you don't ride as hard as Carlos Carrasco for those you care about, then wyd?"

Carrasco was wearing a shirt with the names of Carlos Santana, Francisco Lindor, Shane Bieber and Brad Hand.

His wife Karelis was by his side during the game.

Major Leauge Baseball said they are planning on recognizing Carrasco , who was diagnosed with Leukemia, during the All-Star Game.

They would not elaborate on what they plan on doing for Carrasco.

Following the report of Carrasco’s leukemia diagnosis, Indians fan Jeff Sustarsic took to Twitter to start a movement in support of Carrasco.

Sustaric tweeted “Petition for Carlos Carrasco to throw out the first pitch at the All Star Game... to show that this whole city and all of Major League Baseball are behind him in this,” which garnered the attention of thousands on the site.
