Cleveland enters this weekend’s series with St. Louis tied with Chicago for fourth-place in the American League.
It will play three in St. Louis, followed by three in Kansas City, before getting a day off to return home and start a stretch run with just one day off in twenty-four.
The Indians are dangerous because of their pitching staff, which boasts a 163 ERA+.
Most of the arms are relatively young and new to the scene. One guy who isn’t, however, starts Saturday and that’s Carlos Carrasco.
He’s failed to consistently take his turn in a couple of Cleveland’s rotations back when he was at or near the top of the starters.
This season, though he’s still above the league’s average in terms of ERA, Carrasco might be the last man in the rotation but he’s managing to hold down his spot.
He’s already logged 30 innings in six starts and has plenty of past experience pitching out of the bullpen. Terry Francona will find a way to make use of him, so long as Carrasco stays healthy.
St. Louis Cardinals
The Cardinals will counter with Jack Flaherty, who shut everyone down in the second half of 2019 and has been even better in what is still a minuscule sample here in 2020.
Flaherty has won two of his three starts (2-0) and given up just eight hits, two walks and three earned runs in over 13 innings. He has 12 strikeouts.
One of his starts only lasted 41 pitches because he was returning, along with the rest of his team, from a prolonged absence due to all the positive coronavirus tests.
He threw 64 pitches his last time out and should get an even longer leash in this one.
