- Carlos Carrasco was struck by a line drive in night's Clippers game, and for while everyone feared the worse (broken bone or dislocation) but apparently he "just" suffered a bone bruise.
PTM TJ House was promoted to Columbus to take Carrasco's spot on the roster, although apparently Carrasco isn't slated to miss too much time (though I would think he'll miss at least a couple starts).
- Not much major-league stuff to report, other than that it's raining in Kansas City, and there's a good chance of a delay or even a postponement. I hope that if tonight's game is postponed, it's made up this weekend rather than pushed back; if ever the Indians could manage a doubleheader, it's now, with 13 pitchers on the roster and lots of recent off days (scheduled or otherwise).
I did neglect to update the 25-man/40-roster after the Marson/Gomes move, so here's that:
I've replaced the ZiPS WAR projections with actual WAR (from B-Ref). It's still very early, but I figure this way you can see who on the roster is doing well and not so well.
|CF Michael Brantley
||LF Alex Gordon
|2B Jason Kipnis
||SS Alcides Escobar
|SS Asdrubal Cabrera
||DH Billy Butler|
|RF Nick Swisher||1B Eric Hosmer
|DH Jason Giambi
||CF Lorenzo Cain
|C Carlos Santana
||RF Jeff Francoeur
|1B Mark Reynolds
||C Salvador Perez
|3B Lonnie Chisenhall
||3B Miguel Tejada
|CF Drew Stubbs
||2B Elliot Johnson|
In other words, the Good Lineup. Asdrubal is back, Santana is back, and you have Mark Reynolds hitting seventh.
