Welcome to today's late, late, late edition of the Cleveland Indians spring training Game Thread! Tonight's game is available live on MLB Network, and promises a matchup of two young pitchers looking to assert their place in the rotation and in the world at large: Carlos Carrasco takes on Seattle's Taijuan Walker in the battle of the century!
Cookie is making just his second start of the spring, having been scratched from his last with a nasty flu bug that caught a bunch of other Tribesmen. Here's how the rest of today's roster looks.
Today's scheduled Indians pitchers:
- Carlos Carrasco
- ??? (The Indians didn't send out their usual tweet about it)
Today's Indians starting lineup:
- Michael Bourn (CF)
- David Murphy (DH)
- Michael Brantley (LF)
- Carlos Santana (1B)
- Brandon Moss (RF)
- Yan Gomes (C)
- Lonnie Chisenhall (3B)
- Jose Ramirez (SS)
- Erik Gonzalez (2B)
Jason Kipnis was originally in the lineup, but was scratched due to back spasms. Hopefully a night off and a nice massage have Kipnis feeling better by morning.
