No Hafner, Grady's the DH, and Crowe is starting in center field, his third consecutive start. It's nice that Eric Wedge is getting so creative in getting a young player consistent playing time. He's definitely gotten better at it over the last year.

Full lineups (via Paul Hoynes):

Indians (1-6): DH Grady Sizemore (L), 3B Mark DeRosa (R), 1B Victor Martinez (S), RF Shin-Soo Choo (L), SS Jhonny Peralta (R), LF Ben Francisco (R), C Kelly Shoppach (R), CF Trevor Crowe (S), 2B Asdrubal Cabrera (S) and RHP Carl Pavano.

Royals (4-3): CF Coco Crisp (S), SS Mike Aviles (R), LF David DeJesus (L), RF Mark Teahen (L), 1B Billy Butler (R), DH Mike Jacobs (L), 3B Alex Gordon (L), C John Buck (R), 2B Alberto Callaspo (S) and RHP Kyle Davies.
