Indians Sunday Game Thread: Josh Tomlin to start; Lonnie Chisenhall at 3B

Lance Iversen-USA TODAY Sports

The Tribe takes on the Brewers in today's Cactus League action.

The Indians host the Brewers this afternoon at Goodyear Ballpark, with first pitch scheduled for 4:05 ET (an hour later than other games so far this spring). The game will be televised on STO in Ohio, the first game they've carried in more than a week. You can also find the Cleveland feed on MLB.TV.

Josh Tomlin is scheduled to start for the Indians, followed by relievers Bryan Price, John Axford, Marc Rzepczynski, C.C. Lee, and Travis Banwart. Tomlin is slated for 4 innings, which would be the longest appearance by an Indians pitcher so far this spring. He needs a strong showing this month if he's to make the 25-man roster, so it will be interesting to see how he does in a more extended outing.

Today's starting lineup:

1) Asdrubal Cabrera (SS)

2) David Murphy (DH)

3) Lonnie Chisenhall (3B)

4) Yan Gomes (C)

5) Mike Aviles (LF)

6) Jeff Francoeur (RF)

7) David Cooper (1B)

8) Matt Carson (CF)

9) Justin Sellers (2B)

Sort of an odd lineup, between Cabrera hitting leadoff, Aviles playing left field, and Matt Carson playing center. Starters have been playing 6 innings or so recently, so expect most of those guys to get 3 plate appearances before calling it a day.

Also, it's Elliot Johnson's 30th birthday today, so maybe if the game goes to extra innings like yesterday's contest, Francona will let him pitch the 10th.
