Indians Vs. Royals: Cleveland Projected Starting Lineup For Tuesday

On Tuesday night, the Cleveland Indians will look to build upon their 8-5 win over the Kansas City Royals as the two teams plan to meet for the second game of a three-game set at Progressive Field. After dropping three-straight against their Central Division rivals the Chicago White Sox this past weekend, the Tribe are in need of some wins to battle off the Chi-Sox who are on their tails for the division lead.

Luckily, the Indians have had little trouble scoring runs of late producing at least five runs in their last three games. Here is the projected lineup they will be fielding on Tuesday, which they hope can continue the trend:

1. Shin-Soo Choo, Right Field

2. Jason Kipnis, Second Base

3. Asdrubal Cabrera, Designated Hitter

4. Jose Lopez, First Base

5. Michael Brantley, Center Field

6. Aaron Cunningham, Left Field

7. Lonnie Chisenhall, Third Base

8. Luke Carlin, Catcher

9. Juan Diaz, Short Stop

Starting Pitcher: Justin Masterson; 2-3, 4.62 ERA
