The Indians face the Padres in their final spring-training contest.

The Indians face the Padres in San Diego this afternoon at 4:10 ET, in their final game of spring training. The game will be televised on MLB.TV, and is free to everyone (meaning you don't need to be a subscriber), though it will be the San Diego broadcast. Cleveland audio is available on WTAM.

Danny Salazar will start for the Indians. He's yet to throw 5 full innings in a game this spring, but look for him to go at least that far this afternoon, and perhaps even 6 innings, if he can keep his pitch count reasonable (something of a problem at times).

Eric Stults will be the starter for San Diego. He's a 34-year-old journeyman southpaw.

Today's starting lineup:

1) Asdrubal Cabrera (SS)

2) Nick Swisher (1B)

3) Jason Kipnis (2B)

4) Carlos Santana (3B)

5) Ryan Raburn (LF)

6) Michael Brantley (CF)

7) Yan Gomes (C)

8) David Murphy (RF)

9) Lonnie Chisenhall (DH)

That very well could be the Tribe lineup Tuesday night, when they face lefty (and LGFT) Scott Kazmir, though Murphy and Chisenhall could also be on the bench in favor of guys with a better track record against southpaws.
