After making a number of spot starts for the Indians over the last 13 months, Trevor Bauer has finally been brought to Cleveland with the intention of keeping him here. Nothing like a duel against one of the best pitchers in baseball to make a guy feel welcome!

Tonight's lineup feature Lonnie batting cleanup, making him one of the few players in baseball trusted with that sort of role against some pitchers, while being buried on the bench against others.

In addition to Bauer, Jason Giambi and Justin Sellers were also added to the roster this afternoon, making for a lot of hellos and goodbyes in the clubhouse. Neither of those two will start tonight (or any other night, if I have my way).
