Carlos Carrasco’s wife Karelis Carrasco lives with him in the charming beachfront city of Clearwater, Florida. This is the location where Carlos once returned to while Karelis gave birth to their baby daughter Camila, who is now around three years old. It was one of those “sorry, coach, but I need to get gone for a day or two” occasions since the Cubs were in the middle of spring training. Apparently the doctor at the hospital induced labor but they still had to wait an entire day for the baby to be born. Ouch.
Though Carlos Carrasco’s wife is technically named Karelis, she generally goes by Karry. Karry certainly keeps things informal and sounds less like a pop starlet. According to Carlos, Karry is a nervous nelly, arriving late to games because she gets too anxious watching him. I don’t really get that; I mean, he’s not a boxer. Being a pitcher is a pressure-packed job, but if you don’t have a good game there’s always the next one. Anyway, she tries to attend as many games as she can, and she does so with Camila by her side.
How do you think Karry reacts after Carlos gets suspended for hitting batters with pitches? He’s done it twice in his career, and both times came directly after giving up home runs. A few years ago, Carlos was suspended 8 games. He hit Kevin Youkilis after giving up a homer to Melky Cabrera. Baseball is baseball. Life is life. But, does Karry ever ask him, “Hey so was that intentional or is the league just giving you a hard time”? Based on everything I’ve seen from player wives, it’s unlikely Carlos Carrasco’s wife Karelis Carrasco even has such a conversation. In pro sports relationships, the name of the game is full and steady support.
