Fausto Carmona will be Indians ace

Manny Acta announced that his fellow Dominican Fausto Carmona will be the opening day starter for Acta and the Indians.  Acta says that Carmona deserves the chance to be the ace, after going 13-14 with a 3.77 ERA.  Those may not sound like great numbers, but they are pretty good for a team that finished 69-93 last year.

Carmona had no idea he was going to be the ace going into spring training, even though Acta and a lot of the Indians assumed that would be the case.  This is Carmona's sixth year in the big leagues and he has a career record of 46-51.

Jon Paul Morosi of Fox Sports says that there should be plenty of Carmona to the Yankees rumors later in the season.  It seems like the Indians are providing aces for the rest of the league.  First, CC Sabathia, then Cliff Lee, and now possibly Carmona.

Fausto is from Santo Domingo, DR.
