Today's Lineups

Jason Kipnis - 2B Danny Santana - CF
Chris Dickerson - LF Brian Dozier - 2B
Michael Brantley - CF Trevor Plouffe - 3B
Carlos Santana - 1B Kendrys Morales - 1B
Lonnie Chisenhall - 3B Josh Willingham - DH

The big story tonight is Danny Salazar's return, which may or may last beyond this one game.

Tonight's lineup doesn't feature Ryan Raburn batting fifth, so that's nice. Michael Brantley is starting again, and that's nice too. Nick Swisher won't be needing a mitt, which is a third nice thing. I don't know if the Indians will win or not, but I certainly like their chances better.
