The Indians open a three-game series against the reeling Royals tonight in Kansas City.
Carlos Carrasco gets the ball for Cleveland, while KC counters with Brad Keller.
The Indians lead the AL Central at 8-4. The Royals have lost 10 straight since a 2-and-0 start.
In other news, the Indians will start Jefry Rodriguez in tomorrow’s game against the Royals in place of Mick Clevinger. Clevinger has a muscle strain in his back.
Rodriguez was acquired from the Nationals last November in the trade that sent catcher Yan Gomes to D.C.
