Pre-Game Reading Material
- Ezequiel Carrera has cleared waivers, but Mike McDade hasn't:
Carrera will go to Columbus, presumably sharing the outfield with Tim Fedroff and one of Matt Carson or Cedric Hunter (after Michael Bourn's rehab is over with, of course). I'm interested to see the corresponding AAA roster move that occurs, because it seems to me that something has to give in the outfield. Maybe it's the end for Jeremy Hermida or Matt Carson?

It looks like Francona is throwing out as many right-handed bats as possible against Milone; the only left-handed hitter in the lineup is Jason Kipnis. I'm guessing it's been at least 5-6 years since the Indians threw out a lineup with only one left-handed hitter in it.
