8/24/2018 @ KANSAS CITY  
8/25/2018 @ KANSAS CITY  
BALTIMORE: 2017: 75-87, fifth place.
MANAGER: Buck Showalter (ninth season).
ADDITIONS: RHP Alex Cobb, RHP Andrew Cashner, OF Colby Rasmus, LHP Nestor Cortes Jr., C Andrew Susac, INF Engelb Vielma, OF Austin Hays.
SUBTRACTIONS: C Welington Castillo, SS J.J. Hardy, RHP Ubaldo Jimenez, LHP Wade Miley, RHP Jeremy Hellickson.
OUTLOOK: The Orioles were 25-16 and in first place last year before fading to their first losing season since 2011. The prospect for improvement will rest on a power-laden lineup that needs Davis and Trumbo to rebound from poor performances, but both sluggers fought through injuries this spring and Trumbo will be on the disabled list on opening day. With a shaky rotation and a bullpen that is without injured closer Zach Britton, the Orioles must score plenty of runs to make some noise in the AL East. Baltimore's defense, usually a strong point, was not particularly efficient in 2017. The team addressed the problem by switching Machado to shortstop and working hard on fundamentals this spring. Most important, this could be the last season in Baltimore for Jones and Machado, whose contracts expire after 2018. If the Orioles are sputtering in July, the most intriguing aspect of the team might be whether one or both stars get jettisoned before the July 31 trade deadline.
CLEVELAND: 2017: 102-60, first place, lost to Yankees in ALDS.
MANAGER: Terry Francona (sixth season).
ADDITIONS: 1B-DH Yonder Alonso, LF Rajai Davis, RHP Alexi Ogando.
SUBTRACTIONS: 1B Carlos Santana, OF Jay Bruce, RHP Bryan Shaw, RHP Joe Smith, OF Austin Jackson, LHP Boone Logan.
OUTLOOK: No team has felt postseason pain lately quite like the Indians. They blew a 3-1 lead and lost the 2016 World Series to the Cubs, and squandered a 2-0 advantage in last year's best-of-five Division Series against the Yankees. With arguably baseball's strongest rotation led by Kluber, the Indians are poised to possibly end a championship drought approaching its 70th anniversary. Alonso must help the offense offset the losses of Santana and Bruce. Francona won't have Shaw in the bullpen anymore after the durable reliever pitched in at least 74 games each of the past four seasons. Winning the AL Central won't suffice for the Indians, who are determined to finish the job this year.
Indians' Plutko steps in for injured Bauer to face Orioles

CLEVELAND -- The loss of Trevor Bauer from the Cleveland Indians' starting rotation will be reflected for the first time Saturday afternoon when the Indians host the Baltimore Orioles in the second game of a three-game series at Progressive Field.

Bauer was placed on the 10-day disabled list Aug. 14 with a stress fracture to his right ankle. To replace Bauer in the rotation, Adam Plutko will be recalled from Triple-A Columbus to start against the Orioles.

The loss of Bauer s a major blow for the Indians, especially if he is unable to pitch during the postseason. Before Friday's game, Indians manager Terry Francona gave an update on Bauer.

"He's expected to be back to game activity in four to six weeks," Francona said. "We'll do what the medical people tell us to do, but that thing (the stress fracture) is going to heal when it wants to."

So into the rotation goes Plutko (4-2, 4.75 ERA), who has split the 2018 season between Cleveland and Columbus. In 14 starts at Columbus, the 26-year-old right-hander is 7-3 with an International League-leading 1.70 ERA.

With the Indians, Plutko has been used as a starter and a reliever. In six starts, he is 4-2 with a 4.67 ERA. In three relief appearances, he has no record and a 5.14 ERA.

Plutko's last start for the Indians came June 30, a 7-2 loss to Oakland in which he pitched 5 2/3 innings, allowing three runs and five hits, with three strikeouts and one walk.

In three starts at Progressive Field this year, Plutko is 3-0 with a 5.18 ERA. Saturday will be Plutko's first career appearance against Baltimore.

Plutko's mound opponent Saturday will be right-hander Alex Cobb (3-15, 5.31), who has had as tough a season individually as the Orioles have had as a team.

Cobb's last start was actually one of his better ones, even though it came in a 4-1 loss to Boston. Cobb pitched seven innings, holding the high-scoring Red Sox to one run and six hits, with seven strikeouts and two walks.

Cobb's last win came Aug. 1, a 7-5 decision over the New York Yankees. Cobb held New York to one run in six innings, allowing seven hits, with six strikeouts and no walks.

His last start against Cleveland came May 17, 2017, as a member of the Tampa Bay Rays. Cobb won that game 7-4 as he pitched seven innings, giving up three run and six hits, with seven strikeouts and one walk. In five career starts against the Indians, Cobb is 3-2 with a 3.64 ERA.

One big bat in the Cleveland lineup that Cobb won't have to face on Saturday is Edwin Encarnacion. The Indians' designated hitter was placed on the disabled list Aug. 12 with a right-hand contusion and a strained left biceps. Encarnacion is eligible to be activated off the DL on Aug. 22, but that seems unlikely.

"He has no symptoms in his bicep, and mild symptoms in his hand," Francona said. "It's questionable whether he'll be activated when eligible."

Thanks to the Indians' 2-1 win on Friday, they go into Saturday's game riding a six-game winning streak. A win Saturday would match their longest winning streak of the season.

Baltimore's loss on Friday coupled with Boston's win over Tampa Bay drops the Orioles 50 1/2 games behind the first-place Red Sox.

The Orioles are 4-11 in August. The Indians is 12-3 in August.
