CLEVELAND -- The Indians vaunted rotation absorbed two major blows Tuesday.Carlos Carrasco was rocked for a career-high eight runs in 3 2/3 innings, including two homers, giving the Minnesota Twins all the offense they needed in a 10-6 victory over Cleveland.Before the game, the Indians placed All-Star Danny Salazar on the 15-day disabled list with right elbow inflammation. He gave up six runs in two innings of a 12-5 loss to Minnesota one night earlier.It was back-to-back bad games for us, but you know what? I think well learn from them, said Carrasco, whose ERA rose to 3.12. Im going to work really hard before my next start because I have to be better than tonight. It doesnt matter who youre playing, if you miss pitches, theyll make you pay.Cleveland lost its second in a row and had its lead in the AL Central cut to three games over Detroit. The Indians, who were atop the division by a season-high 7 1/2 games on July 20, are 4-7 against the last-place Twins.Theyre outplaying us, its that simple, Cleveland shortstop Francisco Lindor said. Theyre doing everything better than us these last two games. We tip our hat to them. We didnt play bad -- we played OK -- but they hit much better than we did.Mike Napoli and Carlos Santana each hit a two-run homer in the fifth for the Indians, who trailed 8-0 entering the inning before scoring six times off Twins right-hander Kyle Gibson.Napolis drive landed three rows from the top of the bleachers in left field, traveling an estimated 454 feet. He has homered in four straight games and leads the team with 26.Im not really sure what happened, honestly, Gibson said.Lindor went 3 for 5 with an RBI and leads the majors with 18 three-hit games. Santana also had three hits.Carrasco (7-5) lost his third start in a row at Progressive Field. Minnesota rookie Max Kepler took the right-hander deep for his fourth homer in two games to open the series.The Kepler kid is so hot, and Carlos threw it right to his hot zone, Indians manager Terry Francona said. Things snowballed on him and he couldnt stop it.Cleveland chased Gibson after 4 2/3 innings, but failed to score against four relievers. Ryan Pressly (6-5) earned the win by tossing 1 1/3 innings.Minnesota carried its 8-6 lead into the ninth before Eduardo Escobar hit a two-run homer off Austin Adams.Indians outfielder Brandon Guyer, acquired Monday from Tampa Bay, took Salazars spot on the 25-man roster. He did not play.SWITCHEROOFrancona revised his rotation as a result of Salazars injury. Right-hander Mike Clevinger will be recalled from Triple-A Columbus to start Thursday in the series finale against Minnesota. Right-hander Josh Tomlin has been moved back a day and will pitch Friday at Yankee Stadium.TRAINERS ROOMTwins: 3B Trevor Plouffe (broken left rib), on the DL since July 2, began a rehab assignment with Triple-A Rochester.Indians: RHP Tommy Hunter (broken vertebrae) threw off a mound before the game. The reliever has been on the DL since July 17.UP NEXTTwins: RHP Tyler Duffey is 0-2 with a 27.00 ERA over his last two starts. He allowed five runs in a career-low 1 1/3 innings against Atlanta on July 27.Indians: RHP Trevor Bauer will face Minnesota for the 10th time in his career. He is 1-4 with a 5.01 ERA in 55 2/3 innings against the Twins. Taven Bryan Jersey . Didier Drogba gave away the penalty that put Senegal one goal away from a major upset, but the veteran striker will get another chance -- probably his last -- at the World Cup after Salomon Kalous injury-time strike sealed the Ivorians place in Brazil next year. A.J. Bouye Jersey .J. -- Seven games into a disappointing season, New York Giants defensive catalyst Jason Pierre-Paul is getting the feeling hes back. http://www.thejaguarsfansshop.com/Jaguars-Jalen-Ramsey-Draft-Jersey/ . Bryant, who signed a five-year, $34 million contract as a free agent with Cleveland in March, reported symptoms on Monday morning, a team spokesman said. Yannick Ngakoue Jersey . The quest begins with what is supposed to be an easy one, although Germany has traditionally been a stubborn opponent to Canadian teams at international tournaments. Cam Robinson Jersey . -- When the Florida Panthers fell behind by two goals in the first period to the top team in the NHL, it appeared they were on their way to yet another loss. The numbers are eye-popping at first, sure. But within the context of the NFL quarterback market, Andrew Lucks new deal is a pretty big letdown.This is a deal that has been anticipated for more than a year now by people around the NFL. Agents have been drooling in anticipation of a contract they believed would set new benchmarks and really drive the top of the quarterback market upward for the first time in years. Team executives have been watching to see how much of his considerable leverage Luck would wield against the Colts.The answer? Not that much.Look, theres no crying for Luck here. The numbers set several records. The $87 million in injury guarantees ($47 million of which is guaranteed at signing) far surpasses the $65 million that Eli Manning got last year. The $23.3 million a year surpasses Aaron Rodgers $22 million and Joe Flaccos $22.133 million. The $140 million total surpasses Jay Cutlers $126.7 million.But its not as great as it was supposed to be. The average salary is less than the $25 million many were predicting. The $47 million at signing is $13 million less than Ndamukong Suh?got. Pushing off $27 million of the guarantee into the third and fourth years is seen by people around the league as too risky to the player. Its a nice deal, not a great one.In fact, it helps keep a surprisingly stagnant portion of the NFL marketplace stagnant.The quarterback position really hasnt kept pace with recent salary-cap growth. Since Rodgers signed his contract in 2013, the NFLs salary cap has risen from $123 million to $155.27 million -- an increase of 26.2 percent. Even counting Lucks new deal, over that same time period, the top quarterback salary has risen 5.9 percent.Why? Well, Ive been asking agents and executives that question over the past few weeks in anticipation of a Luck deal, and they all say the same thing. Quarterback is the ultimate leadership position. How does it look in the locker room if you insist on setting records and eating up all the cap space? Remember last year, when Manning got so upset about a report that he wanted to make more than Rodgers made? He didnt, a source said, and he hated that someone would suggest he did. This is the way these guys think -- especially those like Manning and Ben Roethlisberger, who have won their Super Bowls and made their big second-contract money already.But Luck should have been different. Luck should have raked the Colts over the coaals.dddddddddddd If ever a player were going to take a stand and demand the leagues first fully guaranteed veteran deal, this was the guy to do it. He didnt even come close.No time soon will any player wield the kind of leverage Luck had over the Colts. Hes universally recognized as a unique all-around talent -- a respected leader with a brilliant brain, a huge arm and swift feet. Hes exactly the humble, half-goofy, badly bearded face of the franchise that the Colts want him to be. Theyd be toast without him, and while yes, they could have franchised him next year for something in the low $20 million range, at some point he would have been able to threaten to leave.Instead, like so many of his quarterback brethren before him, Luck chose to take the very pretty bird in the hand over the potentially historic bonanza in the bush. Tough to blame him, but if youre a quarterback looking for a big deal in the coming years, he did kind of let you down.Drew Brees has one year left on his Saints deal. He could conceivably ask for more than Luck, but it would have been far sweeter for him if Luck were sitting at $25 million a year than $23.3 million. Kirk Cousins could be in for a big payday if he plays out 2016 on his franchise tag number and has a big season. But how will he be able to argue for more than Luck next March? He was looking forward to drafting and slotting in behind Lucks number the way guys like Manning, Roethlisberger and Russell Wilson were slotting in behind Rodgers not long ago. That slot was supposed to be more stratospheric than this.We dont know who from the group of very young, promising quarterbacks on their first contracts will end up looking for top-of-the-market deals. Jameis Winston? Blake Bortles? Derek Carr? Marcus Mariota? Jared Goff? One of them, maybe a few of them. But whoever they are, when their time comes, it appears theyll be stuck in a quarterback market that doesnt seem to want to skyrocket. And if Luck plays the way the Colts and the rest of the world think he can, then those players teams can hold Luck out as an outlier to whom they dont have the right to compare themselves.If anybody was going to blast through the ceiling of the NFL quarterback market, it was going to be Andrew Luck. Instead, he settled for just nudging it upward a bit.
