Indians Vs. Royals: Projected Starting Lineups For Wednesday Night

On Wednesday night, the Cleveland Indians will play the second game of a three-game set against their American League Central Division counterparts, the Kansas City Royals.

The Indians are currently in the midst of a free-fall and following Tuesday night's disappointing 8-3 loss, the club will look to avoid a five-game losing streak, which was largely powered by a series sweep by the hapless Minnesota Twins where the Tribe was shockingly outscored by a margin of 28-6.

Here is the projected lineups for Wednesday night, courtesy of the team's official twitter accounts:

1. Shin-Soo Choo, Right Field

2. Asdrubal Cabrera, Short Stop

3. Jason Kipnis, Second Base

4. Michael Brantley, Center Field

5. Carlos Santana, Catcher

6. Jose Lopez, Designated Hitter

7. Johnny Damon, Left Field

8. Casey Kotchman, First Base
