He was the nephew of big leaguer Chico Carrasquel, son of minor leaguer Domingo Carrasquel Sr., brother of Alfonso Carrasquel and Martin Carrasquel and cousin of Manuel Carrasquel, Alfonso Collazo and Cris Colón.

Carrasquel went 1 for 3 for the 1991-1992 Cardenales de Lara, who were managed by his father. He hit .275/?/.300 in 1992-1993 then went 2 for 7 for the 1993-1994 Cardenales. He came to the US in 1994 and played for both the Helena Brewers (.281/.391/.296 in 41 G) and Stockton Ports (0 for 6).
