Carlos Carrasco's New York Mets debut is finally here.

The right-hander, who's missed the entire season to date with multiple injuries, will be activated from the 60-day injured list and make his first start of the season on Friday against the Cincinnati Reds, the team announced, according to Newsday's Tim Healey.

Carrasco was acquired from the Cleveland Indians alongside star shortstop Francisco Lindor during the winter.

His injury troubles began early in spring training when he stopped throwing due to elbow soreness. Carrasco then tore his hamstring while rehabbing the elbow issue, further delaying his Flushing debut.

The 34-year-old returned to the mound with three minor-league rehab starts this month. In his most recent outing for Triple-A Syracuse on Sunday, he struck out six while allowing only two hits in three shutout innings.

Carrasco posted a 2.91 ERA and 1.21 WHIP with 82 strikeouts and 27 walks across 12 starts for Cleveland last year.
