Kottaras makes his second appearance for the Indians. In the first one, he hit two home runs. Tell you what, I'll settle for just one of them today.
Chisenhall has appeared at first base six times this season, but today is the first time he'll start there.
Chacin was a very good pitcher in 2013, but missed all of April with an injury, and struggled in five starts during May, in large part because he's not striking many batters out. Hopefully the Indians can continue that trend, and make some things happen offensively.
