After a few straight games of mixing in player rest, the Indians are back to their "usual" lineup. As usual as a Terry Francona lineup can be, anyway.

Cleveland Indians vs. Baltimore Orioles

In their quest for their fourth straight win -- and to potentially take over first place in the American League Central* with a win and a Chicago White Sox loss -- the Cleveland Indians will send Trevor Bauer to the mound to face the sometimes dynamic, sometimes really bad Baltimore Orioles lineup. Do not be surprised to see Trevor finish the day with something like seven strikeouts and five home runs allowed.


Francisco Lindor enjoyed a day off on Wednesday, and now that he is back in the lineup my constant seizing anxiety attacks can stop. Don't you ever take a day off again, young man.


*I checked my math this time.
