The Cleveland Indians, along with the rest of Major League Baseball, have unveiled their schedule for the 2019 season.
In a move that is almost certainly playing with fire (or, more appropriately, snow), the Tribe will open the season on the road against the Minnesota Twins in late March. Good luck with that. The Indians will follow that three-game road series with a six-game homestand in Cleveland against the Chicago White Sox and the Toronto Blue Jays.
With the AL Central matched up against the NL East, the Indians will open up interleague play against the visiting Atlanta Braves from April 19-21, followed by a two-game series against the Miami Marlins. They’ll end the month of April in Miami, before resuming interleague play in June and July against the Reds in the battle for the Ohio Cup.
Assuming he is still manager next season, Mickey Callaway will face his old squad when the Tribe comes to New York from August 20-22.
Two of the Indians’ last three series of the season will be against NL East opponents, including a visit from the Philadelphia Phillies from September 20-22 and a road trip to face the Washington Nationals for a three-game set in the final days of September.
