September 3 News and Notes: Carrasco Brilliant, Raburn Present

Corey Kluber is not pitching today.

Mike Aviles tries his hardest to get down as low as the Indians' playoff chances. (Note: In one of the 3 crops, it is literally impossible to get Aviles and the ball both in the picture.)

• ICYMI, Ryan Raburn was activated from the disabled list yesterday.

Carlos Carrasco pitched brilliantly again last night. His last 5 starts for Cleveland: "0.90 ERA, 0.83 WHIP, .191 (21-for-110) opponents' average, 71% strikes, 34 K/4 BB, 30 IP." He "allowed 10 hits, struck out 10 and only gave up 1 run in 5.1 IP" which was the first time that exact trio of numbers happened in the Major Leagues.

• This is good news, if it pans out. I had a dream last night that he pitched on 1 day rest today because of the short outing on Monday. #SubliminalTitoHate

•  Ryan Braun will miss the Brewers game against the Cubs tonight due to the birth of his child. Stork>FedEx.

Adam Dunn is no longer certain to retire.

Fangraphs has the Indians' playoff chances down to 5.3%.
