Hey, no Mike Aviles! That will have to be the silver lining to Yan Gomes being placed on the 7-day Concussion DL, for now. Despite the defense's ineptitude, Zach Walters still can't find his way into fielding a position.
Danny Salazar takes the ball again tonight for the Indians to face off against Collin McHugh. McHugh hasn't done anything in the majors up to 2014, but is really having a good year in the Houston rotation. He strikes out a lot and doesn't give up too many baserunners, so the Indians will have to find a way to break through where they failed last night.
The Tigers already lost today, getting thumped by the Twins, so hopefully we can grab a win and the Royals fall, too.
