After yesterdays adventures with Trevor, Danny Salazar takes the hill for the Tribe against Billy Beane's Magical Mystery Tour. He'll start off against someone named Kendall Graveman, who is someone that plays for a Major League Baseball team. Here's the rest of the Tribe pitchers and position players for the day:

Today's scheduled pitchers:

  • Danny Salazar
  • Cody Allen
  • Cody Anderson
  • Ryan Merritt
  • Nick Hagadone
  • Dustin Molleken
  • Bryan Price
Don't worry, Cody Allen hasn't been moved from closer to long relief; teams often put their best relievers in one of the first couple spots, when they're more likely to face the opponent's best hitters.

Today's starting lineup:

  1. David Murphy (RF)
  2. Yan Gomes (C)
  3. Michael Brantley (LF)
  4. Brandon Moss (DH)
  5. Lonnie Chisenhall (3B)
  6. James Ramsey (CF)
  7. Jerry Sands (1B)
  8. Francisco Lindor (SS)
  9. Erik Gonzalez (2B)

Spring training batting orders are sometimes random, and sometimes about certain guys getting an extra at bat, but it's still weird to see David Murphy batting leadoff.

In other Tribe news, Corey Kluber was given a one-year deal this morning, so (at least for the time being) there is no longterm contract extension for him.
