It will be a packed house on Saturday night inside Progressive Field as the Oakland Athletics and Cleveland Indians continue their weekend series.
The Indians will be inducting Jim Thome and Albert Belle into their Hall of Fame, with an expected capacity crowd on hand to see it.
The Athletics have been quite busy as of late. They’ve been fielding multiple calls per hour as the trade deadline approaches. They’ve also been taking down playoff teams as they try to get their way back to the .500 mark.
Oakland is 7-3 in their last 10 games and comes in off a win in Texas on Wednesday.
Oakland has won 3 straight series as they took 2 of 3 against Houston, 3 of 4 against Tampa Bay, and 2 of 3 against the first place Rangers.
Oakland will send out Dillon Overton, who has made 3 starts for the Athletics, but struggled in 2 of them. He sits with an 8.40 ERA, which is thanks in large part to an 8 run beatdown against the Giants.
Oakland’s staff has really struggled as a whole, boasting an ERA of 4.62.
Cleveland has been at the center of all trade talks as well, based on their farm system.
They have almost every piece in the minors that teams are looking for, which is why their phone continues to ring.
The trade that has been rumored to make the most sense is the one for C Jonathan Lucroy. The Indians catcher position is a mess right now, but the price is high as the Brewers are likely asking for both top outfield prospects in Clint Frazier and Bradley Zimmer.
For now, the Indians must work with what they got, as Jason Kipnis put it best following a 4-1 loss to Washington on Wednesday. Kipnis told reporters while the front office does their job, it’s important the players currently on the field remain focused.
Cleveland will send out Josh Tomlin here, who sits at 10 wins on the season.
Tomlin has lost 2 of his last 3 starts and comes in off a 4 run 6.0 inning output against the Orioles.
