Cleveland Indians @ Boston Red Sox

Radio: WTAM

After Bauer's performance last night, Corey Kluber tries to restore order. Dave Dombrowski is now Boston's head of baseball operations, though that's not going to have an effect on tonight's game (unless you think that the move serves as some sort of motivation for the current 25-man roster). Joe Kelly, who has pitched better of later, will be starting for the Sawx.

Jose Ramirez will be playing left field tonight, which makes his first major-league start in the outfield. It seems clear that Ramirez's future role with the Indians will be as a utility player, and the ability to play the outfield will be a key part of that role because of the how many relievers the team usually goes with.
