Today's Lineups

Corey Kluber is looking for his third straight quality start after a poor initial outing. Last time out, he went 7 and 1/3 innings giving up only two runs and striking out six, but the Indians would end up losing 4-3. This time, Klubot faces off against ex-White Sock (Sox?) and everyone's favorite soft-tossing lefty Mark Buehrle, whose name continues to be amongst the most difficult to spell in MLB.

The lineup looks like what we've come to expect against lefties, with Lonnie Chisenhall sitting out, Carlos Santana DH-ing, and Asdrubal Cabrera again in the leadoff spot. For the Blue Jays, Jose Reyes makes his return from a stint on the DL with a strained hamstring. Keeping him off the basepaths is one of the keys to a win for the Indians today. Let's go, Tribe!
