The good news: if the Indians win the next two games, plus sweep the Twins next week, they'll have caught them in the Wild Card standings.
The bad news: There are two other teams ahead of them in the Wild Card standings, one of which is 4.5 games ahead of them.
The ugly news: Michael Brantley is out of the lineup tonight, and Mike Aviles is starting in his place in left field.
(Oh yeah: the Indians added a third catcher (Adam Moore) to the roster today, and DFAd Tyler Holt to make room on the 40-man. Makes total sense, right? It's not like the Indians would need another outfielder right now.....)
Indians recall RHP CC Lee, 1B Jesus Aguilar from AAA. C Adam Moore's contract purchased from AAA, too. OF Tyler Holt DFA'd to clear 40 spot.— Jordan Bastian (@MLBastian) September 23, 2015
