Carlos Samuel Estévez (born December 28, 1992) is a Dominican professional baseball pitcher for the Colorado Rockies of Major League Baseball (MLB).

Career[edit]

Estévez signed with the Rockies as a free agent in 2011, at the age of 18.[1] After the 2015 season, the Rockies added Estévez to their 40-man roster.[2] He promoted the major leagues on April 22, 2016.[3] He made his debut on April 23.[1] When Rockies' closer Jake McGee went on the disabled list in June, Estévez became the Rockies' new closer.[4] He finished the season with 63 appearances and 11 saves.

On April 3, 2017, Estévez pitched a hitless sixth, earning the win against the Milwaukee Brewers on Opening Day.[5] On June 18, 2017, Carlos got called back up from Triple-A Albuquerque to the Rockies to replace Chad Qualls, who went to the 10-Day DL. Estévez came in with the Rockies having given up the lead in the 9th inning to the San Francisco Giants trying to hold the score of 5 to 3 with a runner on second base, and got a strike out of Buster Posey to end the top of the 9th to prevent further damage. After a Rockies' 9th inning rally of three straight 1-out singles, Nolan Arenado hit a walk-off three-run home run to complete his first career cycle, improving Carlos' record to 4-0 on the year.[6] In 35 appearances, he finished with a record of 5-0 and an ERA of 5.57.

He missed the entire 2018 season following a couple of injuries and remaining in the AAA level.
