Indians Wednesday Game Thread: Indians vs Athletics

The Tribe takes on the Athletics in today's Cactus League action.

Brian Spurlock-USA TODAY Sports

The Indians host the Athletics at Goodyear Park this afternoon, with first pitch scheduled for 4:05 ET. The game will not be televised, but audio is available via MLB.TV.

Danny Salazar is starting for the Indians, which should be exciting. Carlos Carrasco will be appearing in relief... something he might want to get used to if Tomlin keeps up his great start.

Today's starting lineup:

1) Elliot Johnson

2) Mike Aviles (CF) (LOL)

3) Lonnie Chisenhall (3B)

4) Carlos Santana (C)

5) David Murphy (RF)

6) Ryan Raburn (DH)

7) Bryan LaHair (1B)

8) Matt Carson (LF)

9) Francisco Lindor (SS)

Dan Strally is starting for Oakland today. See tweet below. I assume this is the debut of Aviles in center today, but I could be wrong. Good to see Carlos catching. I'm not really on board with the third base thing. (GO LONNIE!)

... and because I can't resist ...
