This is my last day in Arizona; I fly back to Cleveland tomorrow morning.  I’m heading out to Goodyear today to see the Indians take on the Rangers and Yu Darvish.  I’ll be live blogging as I spend my final day baking in the sun.  I think the game is supposed to be broadcast on both STO and the MLB Network.

Indians lineup:

Michael Brantley – CF

Asdrubal Cabrera – SS

Shin-Soo Choo – RF

Travis Hafner – DH

Jose Lopez – 1B

Jason Kipnis – 2B

Fred Lewis – LF

Jack Hannahan – 3B

Lou Marson – C

Josh Tomlin – starting pitcher

A lot of the regular starters in the lineup for the Indians today.  I saw that Casey Kotchman is still suffering from back tightness (3rd straight day) and that Felix Pie may be available today (some soreness after he crashed into the outfield wall the other day in Surprise against the Rangers).

Rangers lineup:

Craig Gentry – CF

Yangervis Solarte – 2B

David Murphy – LF

Conor Jackson – DH

Mitch Moreland – 1B

Yorvit Torrealba – C

Engel Beltre – RF

Luis Hernandez – SS

Mike Olt – 3B

Yu Darvish – starting pitcher

Mike Napoli and Ian Kinsler are nursing minor injuries and won’t be at the game.  After Darvish, the Rangers plan to use RHP Koji Uehara, LHP Joe Beimel, RHP Mike Adams, RHP Tanner Scheppers, LHP Robbie Ross and LHP Mitch Stetter.

    Lopez looks like he’s in great shape.
    If he keeps hitting he might just make this club.

    He’s definitely my favorite invitee thus far.

  • Will McIlroy says:

    if Lopez keeps hitting he might make the team instead of Chisenhall. He can play 2B, 3B and 1B and gives Acta another RH bat in contrast to Hanahan. If it doesn’t work out, Chisenhall still gets some more time at AAA and replaces Lopez in June.
