Pre-Game Reading Material:
- As noted in verse earlier today, the Indians have added Matt Albers back to the active roster and Designated Fernando Nieve for Assignment:
The Cleveland Indians today activated RHP MATT ALBERS from the Restricted List and designated RHP FERNANDO NIEVE for assignment.— Cleveland Indians (@Indians) April 22, 2013
The Indians continue to have an eight-man bullpen, though I think that's going to end when Lou Marson is activated in a couple of days. With Ryan Raburn used more an outfielder now that Michael Bourn is on the DL, Gomes can play first and third until Bourn is ready to come off the DL at the end of the month.
- The diagnosis for Brett Myers' right elbow is tendonitis/mild UCL strain. He won't throw for two weeks, meaning at minimum he's out for a month if you consider that he'll need a couple rehab starts. And that's assuming the rest does the trick.
Myers underwent MRI Sunday: diagnosed with R. elbow tendonitis/mild UCL sprain. No throwing for 2 weeks. More on Indians.com soon— Jordan Bastian (@MLBastian) April 22, 2013

Asdrubal Cabrera only needed one full out of the lineup, as he's back in there tonight. Jordan Danks is in the lineup because Dayan Viciedo is on the Disabled List; otherwise, it's a similar lineup to the one the Indians faced last week.
