Corey Kluber pitched against Tampa Bay, in Cleveland, on the final day of August. It was a good one. He gave up two hits in seven innings and beat Tyler Glasnow, who was nearly as good in his own right.
The Indians will see Glasnow again in this game but won’t have Kluber going to pour in the zeros. Instead, Shane Bieber will make his seventeenth start of the year.
Cleveland is 11–5 in those sixteen games and Bieber himself is 9–3. He’s not a high volume strikeout guy but he’s got nearly six times as many Ks as BBs and doesn’t give up a ton of homers either. It’s a good matchup for him because he’ll make Tampa Bay go station to station.
Tampa Bay Rays
Tampa Bay does have some sneaky pop, especially in the form of Ji-Man Choi, who is a darn good hitter, despite not even having the respect of the league, leave alone the public.
Choi posted a 68 OPS+ in his first season in the majors with the Angels. If you take away that season and the 112 at-bats he had, his career OPS+ in about 200 at-bats is up around 140.
He’s slugging .521 in 120 at-bats with the Rays, going into Monday. I think he’s totally a legitimate middle-of-the-order threat for a lower profile team like Tampa Bay and could do damage against the right-handed starter in this game.

Free Cleveland Indians vs. Tampa Bay Rays MLB Prediction: under.
Glasnow got rocked in his last start. Confidence has been an issue with him at the big league level but I’m going to show some faith in the kid and say he bounces back.
