|Zelous Wheeler - 3B||Chris Dickerson - LF|
|Masahiro Tanaka - RHP||Trevor Bauer - RHP|
The Indians get their first in-person look at Tanaka, who has not disappointed in his first MLB season. He's got a case as the best pitcher in the league so far (even if the right answer to that question is Felix Hernandez).
The newly acquired DIckerson starts in left again, with Brantley in center. Tyler Holt is no longer an option, as he was sent back to Columbus in part of the roster moves made when Justin Masterson was placed on the DL this afternoon.
No word yet on whether or not Zelous Wheeler is a real person.
