After A Day Off, Tribe Back At It Today Against The Reds; Carmona On The Hill

After a well-deserved day off from playing exhibition games yesterday, the Indians are back in action today against our friends from downstate, the Cincinnati Reds, in a 4:05 p.m. match-up of two Central Division teams from opposite leagues.

Fausto Carmona, brilliant in his last start, gets the call for the Tribe today. Although Cincinnati’s lineup is not yet posted at the time of this writing, the Indians’ is, and after all, that is who we are here for, is it not?

So, without further ado, here are the starters for your Cleveland Indians as we enter the final fifteen days before the blessed beginning of the regular season:

1) Michael Brantley (L) CF
2) Adam Everett® SS
3) Shin-Soo Choo (L) RF
4) Carlos Santana (S) 1B
5) Travis Hafner (L) DH
6) Austin Kearns® LF
7) Jack Hannahan (L) 3B
8) Luke Carlin (S) C
9) Luis Valbuena (L) 2B

The Indians enter today’s play at 7-9 in the Cactus League, with a couple of ties thrown in for good measure, while the defending NL Central champion Reds come in at 10-8.
