Tribe sets rotation for first week |

The first five games of the season are set in terms of who will be starting on the mound for the Cleveland Indians. Following Corey Kluber, who will pitch on Opening Day against the Texas Rangers, will be Carlos Carrasco, Danny Salazar, Josh Tomlin, and Trevor Bauer in that order.

I’d love to have Brantley back on the field for Opening Day, but if a few more days of rest can help him be back to 100%, I’m all for him resting. Just protect his shoulder in bubble wrap.
