Indians Sunday Game Thread: Zach McAllister to face Mike Trout and the Angles

The Tribe takes on the Angels in this afternoon's Cactus League action.

The Indians are on the road to face the Angels Sunday afternoon, with first pitch scheduled for 4:05 ET. The game will be televised on MLB.TV (with only the Angels' broadcast available), while Tribe audio can be found there as well, and also on WTAM in the Cleveland area.

Zach McAllister will start for the Indians. He was roughed up in a big way in his last appearance, when he allowed 9 hits, including 3 home runs, in 3 innings on Tuesday. He has also walked as many as he's struck out this spring, which is not what you want to see.

Garrett Richards, a right-hander set to begin the year as Los Angeles' #3 or 4 starter, will be on the mound for the Angels.

Today's starting lineup:

1) David Murphy (RF)

2) Nick Swisher (DH)

3) Carlos Santana (C)

4) Ryan Raburn (LF)

5) Lonnie Chisenhall (3B)

6) Mike Aviles (SS)

7) Bryan LaHair (1B)

8) Elliot Johnson (2B)

9) Nyjer Morgan (CF)

This is the second day in a row Chisenhall has been at third base. Yesterday, when the Indians announced a number of roster moves, it was mentioned that the team still hadn't spoken with Chisenhall and Santana about how they'd be used, but unless this weekend was some sort of last look for Lonnie, it seems likely to me that he's going to be the primary third baseman, with Santana as the primary DH and a super-sub of sorts, filling in for Yan Gomes, Swisher, and (occasionally) Chisenhall.
