Tampa Bay Rays
Tampa Bay got Thursday off after splitting a pair of games with the Braves in Atlanta during the week.
Tampa Bay is 8.5 games out of a playoff spot in the American League, which is fairly incredible considering the roster the Rays have played the entire season with and how stiff the playoff competition has been in the AL. This is a playoff team in the National League.

Tampa Bay also has series with Oakland and New York, the two teams in the playoffs as of now. This series with Cleveland could derail any hope of a miracle going into September.
Blake Snell is nasty and he’s going in this one on Saturday. He’s second in the AL in both ERA and wins and has a chance to get into a tie for first in the wins department in this game.
But Shane “Not Justin” Bieber will have something to say about that. The rookie is 8–2 despite a league-average ERA. He’s going to reach 100 innings in his first big league season here in September. He’s going into this start with about eighty.

Cleveland’s four relievers who have thrown the most innings this season all have an ERA+ under 100. That’s unsightly and just can’t be a formula for success in the playoffs. But the fact that the Indians are where they are in spite of that is something to behold.
Andrew Miller is back on the DL. Terry Francona remains hopeful he’ll be back in time to pitch in October but he’s thrown twenty-four innings all season. If he isn’t back in a couple weeks, it will probably never happen.

Free Tampa Bay Rays vs. Cleveland Indians MLB Prediction: under.
Bieber pitches to the competition and Snell is going to make this a pitcher’s duel. I think the Cleveland rookie hangs for five innings. It’ll be up to Cleveland’s ‘pen.
