When We Last Met
In particular, Miguel Cabrera has hammered Cleveland pitching this year. Over 11 games, he is slashing .619/.673/1.024 with five home runs and 16 RBI in 42 at-bats versus the Indians in 2015. Cabrera picked up an RBI on Monday with a bases-loaded walk.
But manager Brad Ausmus has decided to rest Cabrera on Wednesday. Andrew Romine will play first base while Victor Martinez, and everyone else, has moved up in the order.
Right-hander Buck Farmer has been recalled from Triple-A Toledo and will get the ball. Farmer is 0-1 with a 12.60 ERA and 2.00 WHIP in his one start this season. He went five innings and allowed seven runs on nine hits to the Los Angeles Angels.
Carlos Carrasco will start for the Indians. He has been alright this season with a 8-6 record and 4.35 ERA. He also has a 1.26 WHIP and 90 strikeouts in 80 2/3 innings this year.
Carrasco has made two starts versus Detroit this season. He lost the first one in April, yielding five runs on nine hits in 4 1/3 innings. Carrasco, though, won the second one on June 13. He allowed three runs on seven hits in 5 2/3 frames and struck out eight Tigers that day.
