The Cleveland Indians and fantasy baseball owners will be without Carlos Carrasco for a couple weeks and will need to replace those starts.  Here are five pitchers that are making two starts this week, and are less than 50% owned on Yahoo.

Wei Yin Chen (47%)
Chen will get two road starts this week against the Dodgers and Brewers.  His season ERA is near 5.00, but over the last two weeks has pitched 13.1 innings, striking out 13, with an ERA of 3.38 and a 0.98 WHIP.

Rick Porcello
Porcello is coming off a strong start against the Rays, punching out 9 in 7 innings.  He has 24 K in 19.1 IP this year, and will face the Braves in Atlanta before hosting the Yankees.

Kevin Gausman
Gausman struck out 9 in his lone rehab start for AAA Norfolk.  He will make his season debut at Tampa Bay before a home start against the White Sox.

Ross Stripling
Stripling did not look good in his last start, but the Dodgers rookie will get to face the Marlins and Padres at home this week.

Rich Hill
He might be 36 years old, but Hill struck out 10 Yankees in his last start.  He owns a 3.32 ERA this year with 29 K in 19 IP.  He will be on the road in Detroit against the Tigers before a home start against the Astros, two of the top five strikeout teams in the American League.
