CLEVELAND -- Carlos Carrasco's smile remains bright, his mood and outlook as positive as ever.
Outwardly, the Indians right-hander doesn't seem different. He's determined not to let cancer change him.
"I never put anything bad on my mind," Carrasco said. "Everything's good. So I don't feel different. I just push myself to work more and get stronger."
Diagnosed with chronic myeloid leukemia last month, the 32-year-old Carrasco spoke to media members Thursday for the first time since his life took a dramatic, unexpected turn. As he dealt with so many unknowns, Carrasco said he's never once asked "why me" after learning of his condition.
