High School & College Career
Carrasco started to play soccer at a very young age. In his teenage, Carrasco joined the local teams. He also played for St. Augustine school’s soccer team and the San Diego Surf Soccer Club of California.
However, his serious career started at the college level when he was 19, and he got a sports scholarship at the University of California in 2007.
While playing for the California Golden Bears, Carrasco successfully established several records and was named to the Pac-10-All-Academic second team.
Carrasco was one of the two players at the University of California to have seven assists during the season, including one goal-winning assist against Oregon State University.
During his four years of playing career in the California Golden Bears, Carrasco scored 13 goals.
On January 13, 2011, the Seattle Sounders F.C. drafted him in the second round (27th overall) of the 2011 MLS SuperDraft with a base salary of $42k.
On March 21, 2011, he played his debut match for the Sounders against New York Red Bulls.
But Carrasco was unable to score for the club for two years. In 2013, he scored his first goal against the Vancouver Whitecaps F.C.
Later, the Sounders F.C. traded him to Houston Dynamo in 2013. He spent a year playing with the Houston Dynamo F.C.
Houston To Fort
After a season with Houston, the club traded him to Sporting Kansas City on February 18, 2015, in exchange for the 30th pick in the 2015 MLS SuperDraft.
And five months later, Orlando City SC signed him from Kansas City, on July 20, 2015, in exchange for Orlando’s midfielder Amobi Okugo.
His MLS career second goal was in the 1-0 victory over New York Red Bulls on April 19, 2017.
Even after two MLS seasons with Orlando City SC, Carrasco’s declining career didn’t see notable uplift. So the club didn’t offer him a contract option. As a result, Servando entered the 2017 MLS Re-Entry Draft.
On December 21, 2017, the L.A. Galaxy selected him in Stage Two of the draft & signed a contract on January 11, 2018. There he got to play alongside Swedish legendary soccer player Zlatan Ibrahimovic.
Despite 35 appearances: 19 in 2018 & 16 in 2019, Servando went scoreless.
But being a defensive midfielder, it is hard to score. That’s why people do not criticize Carrasco for his playing technique.
On January 1, 2020, he left L.A. Galaxy after the club declined to offer him a new contract extension.
Servando became a free agent until Fort Lauderdale CF (now Inter Miami CF II) signed him for the 2020 season on December 27, 2020. With Fort Lauderdale, he played 12 games wearing jersey number #5 before his exit on December 1, 2020.
In his total career, he played 213 games and recorded two goals, 6 assists, 30 yellow cards, and 1 red card.
