Cleveland Indians vs. Tampa Bay Rays

When: Tuesday, May 16, 2017, 6:10 ET

Where: Progressive Field, Cleveland, Ohio, U.S.A.

How: TV - STO; Radio - WTAM


In a showdown with Tampa's Jake Odorizzi, can Danny Salazar top his last outing? God help us if he can't, because his last outing was burning trash. Danny only lasted 2 2/3 while allowing five runs. After Carlos Carrasco left yesterday's game early with pectoral tightness, it would be ideal if Salazar can go at least six tonight to save the bullpen from getting overworked.

But enough about the pitching. The big news is that Bradley Zimmer is making his Major League debut tonight! And he's starting!
