The Indians and Angels play the third of what was supposed to have been a four-game series against the Angels at Progressive Field this afternoon. Wednesday night’s game was postponed because of rain; the make-up date has not yet been rescheduled. Monday night’s win was the Tribe’s lone win again the Angels this season. So far, Cleveland is 1-4 against the LA Angels and have been outscored 31-15. Justin Masterson (4-5, 5.05) will still start for the Indians against left-hander C.J. Wilson (7-6, 3.50). You’ll recall that in Masterson’s last start, he went just 2.0 innings against Boston last Friday. It was just the third time in his career that Masterson failed to record more than 6 outs in a starting capacity. On the plus side, the Indians are 7-2 over the last 9 games Masterson has started against the Angels.
The big roster move of the day involved activating RHP ZACH McALLISTER from the DL. To make room on the roster, left-handed reliever Josh Outman was designated for assignment.
