Cleveland at New York, 7:05 PM (STO)

Starting Pitchers:

Cleveland: Jake Westbrook (7.36 ERA, 2 PRC)
New York: Chase Wright (MLB Debut)

I hate to jinx things, but the Indians couldn't have picked a better time to travel to New York. Because three of their regular starters are currently on the DL, the Yankees have dipped far into their minor-league system to fill out their rotation. Wright, tonight's starter, is a 24-year-old left-hander with two AA starts to his credit, and since that's all I profess to know about him, here's a more detailed scouting report.

Victor Martinez will be back in the lineup tonight: he ended up missing only six games thanks to the Seattle series snow-out.
