Pre-game Reading Material:
- The Indians have rescheduled the the two games postponed this week for a May 13th traditional doubleheader.
Carlos Santana is back in the lineup today. Thus far the Indians haven't optioned Yan Gomes out, but they might just wait until Matt Albers comes back to allow Santana to come back gradually. Update: Santana is out today, with Gomes starting in his place (h/t ScottWFNY)
Jason Kipnis is sitting today thanks to a sore elbow.
Kipnis scratched (left elbow soreness, day-to-day).Ryan Raburn will bat third and play second base.— Cleveland Indians (@Indians) April 13, 2013
Now this may be a blessing in disguise, as the Indians are facing Chris Sale today. Raburn, at least today, is probably going to have a better day at the plate than Kipnis would have had.
