Major LeaguesCarmona made his major league debut with the Indians on April 15, 2006.

Fausto is a starting pitcher, although he did pitch some games in relief during the latter half of his rookie season in 2006 (disasterously!).

Fausto was demoted after the failure of the reliever experiment, to the Buffalo Bisons, but was called back up to the majors, where he has been ever since.

On April 9, 2008, The Cleveland Indians signed Carmona to a four-year contract extension through 2012.

He went on the disabled list for a few weeks in June with a strained left hip.
