Carlos Carrasco looks to bounce back after rough first start

Carlos Carrasco was chased in the fifth frame in his last outing. Can he bounce back and have a lengthier outing today?

The Indians have won two in a row thanks in large part to the dominant pitching by Trevor Bauer and Shane Bieber. Carlos Carrasco will try to keep the train rolling this afternoon in his second start of the season. If he’s going to do it, he’ll have to fare better than he did on March 31 against the Twins when he went just 4.1 innings and gave up 6 earned runs on 10 hits. Opposite him will be LHP Thomas Pannone, who takes the spot of Sean Reid-Foley following Reid-Foley’s demotion.

Here’s the starting 9 for your Tribe:
