Toronto at Cleveland, 7:05 (STO)

Starting Pitchers:

Cleveland: CC Sabathia (9-8, 3.30 ERA)
Toronto: Gustavo Chacin (6-3, 6.32 ERA)

Chacin is making his second start since returning from a lengthy stay on the DL. His first start didn't go so well; he lasted just 1.2 innings against the A's, giving up 6 hits and five runs.

Grady Sizemore and Travis Hafner are the only two left-handers in the lineup tonight. While Grady has a most definite platoon split, Pronk doesn't care which arm the pitcher throws with:

vs. LHP: 180 AB, 15 HR, .322/.438/.650/1.088
vs. RHP: 266 AB, 24 HR, .297/.430/.639/1.069

He's pretty good.
