Indians Saturday Game Thread: Bullpen day for Tribe vs. Diamondbacks

Lance Iversen-USA TODAY Sports

The Tribes takes on the Diamondbacks in today's Cactus League action.

The Indians host the Diamondbacks at Goodyear Park this afternoon, with first pitch scheduled for 4:05 ET. The game will not be televised, but audio is available through WTAM in the Cleveland area, and via MLB.TV anywhere else you might find yourself.

Frank Herrmann is starting for the Indians, which I believe means the Indians are not allowed to charge fans for admission (what it actually means is today is a bullpen day, and none of the starting pitchers will appear). Herrmann pitched for the first time on Wednesday, allowing 3 runs on 4 hits in his inning of work.

Today's starting lineup:

1) Asdrubal Cabrera (SS)

2) Nick Swisher (1B)

3) Jeff Francoeur (DH)

4) Carlos Santana (3B)

5) Mike Aviles (LF)

6) David Murphy (RF)

7) Elliot Johnson (CF)

8) Justin Sellers (2B)

9) Luke Carlin (C)

Patrick Corbin (a good, young lefty) is starting for Arizona today, something the Tribe haven't faced many off this spring. No surprise to see Santana at third base today, but I have to think we're going to see him at catcher in the next few days. I haven't heard anything to make me think the team has plans to move him off the postion entirely, in which case he needs to get some work in there.
