Los Angeles Angels @ Cleveland Indians

Carlos Carrasco will try to build on a fine start in New York with another solid outing tonight. The middle of the Angel order is still difficult (thinks to the otherworldly Mike Trout), but the bottom of the order should be a bit more accommodating.

The Angels are going with a left-hander in Tyler Skaggs, and so the Indians are going with a right-handed leaning lineup. With Carlos Santana out of action, it looks like Francona is going to use the opportunity to cycle the regulars into the DH slot, with the unfortunate side effect of Michael Martinez being in the lineup. Yes, our greatest fears have become reality....
