Old Rough and Ready will look to get this series off to a good start for the Indians, but he's opposed by the very good Sonny Gray.

Michael Brantley is back in the lineup after missing last night's game, which is a big relief. Jose Ramirez makes his first start since Saturday, with Mike Aviles getting the night off (or at least some of it).

Sonny Gray has been great so far this season, with a 2.17 ERA in eight starts. He's gone at least 6 innings in each of his appearances, and hasn't allowed more than 3 runs in a game.

The big news for the Indians today, in case you've somehow missed it, is that Danny Salazar has been sent down to Columbus to try and figure some things out. Kyle Crockett has been promoted from Double-A Akron to take his roster spot, and Trevor Bauer will be called up to join the rotation on Tuesday.
