Series Preview

Today's Lineups

Alejandro De Aza - LF Nyjer Morgan - CF
Gordon Beckham - 2B Nick Swisher - 1B
Jose Abreu - 1B Michael Brantley - LF
Adam Dunn - DH Carlos Santana - 3B
Dayan Viciedo - RF Lonnie Chisenhall - DH
Alexei Ramirez - SS Asdrubal Cabrera - SS
Jordan Danks - CF David Murphy - RF
Tyler Flowers - C Jose Ramirez - 2B
Leury Garcia - 3B George Kottaras - C
Andre Rienzo - RHP Corey Kluber - RHP

The Indians sent optioned Nick Hagadone back to Columbus and brought Morgan back up, because Michael Bourn is unable to play today due to a sore hamstring (no word yet on whether another DL stint will be needed). Morgan, Ramirez, and Kottaras were all in Columbus three days ago, but it's been a hectic weekend for the Tribe roster.

A win today would allow the Tribe to escape the AL Central basement.
