The Indians head to Surprise, Arizona to face the Rangers in today's spring training action. After Saturday's scheduled game against the White Sox was rained out, this will be the Tribe's first road contest of the spring. First pitch is at 3:05 ET. The game will not be televised, but audio can be found at WTAM in the Cleveland area, as well as through MLB.TV.

Corey Kluber and Carlos Carrasco are each slated to pitch 2 innings. Kluber will be looking to rebound from a shaky first outing, with Carrasco will be looking to turn in another strong one. Vinnie Pestano will make his Cactus League debut after those two are finished. David Aardsma, Josh Outman, Blake Wood, and C.C. Lee are also expected to pitch.

Today's starting lineup:

1) Nyjer Morgan (CF)

2) Mike Aviles (2B)

3) Lonnie Chisenhall (3B)

4) Ryan Raburn (RF)

5) Jason Giambi (DH)

6) Jeff Francoeur (LF)

7) David Adams (1B)

8) Elliot Johnson (SS)

9) Luke Carlin (C)

No word yet on whether or not Francisco Lindor will be dropping by to hit another home run.
