DETROIT -- The Cleveland Indians promoted pitcher Carlos Carrasco and outfielder Michael Brantley from Triple-A on Tuesday and immediately put them in the lineup for their major league debuts.

The right-handed Carrasco was set to start Tuesday night at Detroit. Brantley was batting ninth and playing left field.

The Indians recalled Carrasco from Columbus. They purchased the contracts of Brantley and right-hander Jose Veras from the same club.

Minor league pitching coordinator Dave Miller also was scheduled to join the Indians' coaching staff.
