Series Preview


Today's Lineups

Jason Kipnis - 2B Brett Gardner - LF
Jose Ramirez - SS Derek Jeter - SS
Michael Brantley - DH Jacoby Ellsbury - CF
Carlos Santana - 1B Mark Teixeira - 1B
Yan Gomes - C Carlos Beltran - DH
Lonnie Chisenhall - 3B Stephen Drew - 2B
Zach Walters - LF Martin Prado - 3B
Chris Dickerson - CF Ichiro Suzuki - RF
Ryan Raburn - RF Francisco Cervelli - C
Carlos Carrasco - RHP Hiroki Kuroda - RHP


The Indians have placed Nick Swisher and David Murphy on the DL, so Zach Walter will make his Indians debut this afternoon (and Tyler Holt is back up to watch more games from the bench too).

Can the Indians win a game that Corey Kluber doesn't start? So far this week, they haven't. Today we'll see Carlos Carrasco make his first start since April. He didn't do well as a starter then, and he didn't do well as a starter in 2013, but maybe's he's figured something out. I've wanted him in the bullpen for a season and a half now, but with the way everyone but Corey Kluber has pitching for the last few weeks, I'm ready to see just about anyone get a shot at starting.
