* Good news for their fans, the Cleveland Indians have 18 games remaining in 2016, all of which are against divisional opponents where they are 38-18 this year.
* The Chicago White Sox were blanked for the 10th time of the season yesterday – a number they share with two other AL Central club – the Twins and Royals.
* Carlos Carrasco has the best road ERA in MLB this year at 2.02.
* Miguel Gonzalez threw 6.1 innings of shutout ball six days ago vs. the Tigers, picking up the win in his first start since a stint on the disabled list. Gonzalez enters tonight’s contest having won each of his first three career starts against the Indians.
* And when it’s come to hitting against the Indians this season, unless your name is Jose Abreu, you probably haven’t had that much success. His BA vs. the Tribe is .341 and the rest of the team comes in at .211.
