CLEVELAND -- The Cleveland Indians will start Trevor Bauer in Game 1 of the 2017 American League Division Series against either the Minnesota Twins or New York Yankees at Progressive Field Thursday night.

By starting Bauer, the Indians will be able to keep ace right-hander and AL Cy Young Award candidate Corey Kluber on his schedule of pitching every five days, as he will start Game 2 at Progressive Field Friday afternoon. By starting Kluber in Game 2, the Indians could go back to him on regular rest should the ALDS go to a winner-take-all Game 5.

Carlos Carrasco will take the hill in Game 3 and Josh Tomlin would start a Game 4, but is still available to pitch in long relief should the Indians need him in either Games 1 or 2.

Even before beginning their AL-record 22-game winning streak began, the Indians saw Bauer emerge as the type of talent who was selected with the No. 3 overall pick in the 2011 MLB Draft.

In the month of August, Bauer posted a 5-0 record and 2.30 earned run average in seven appearances, including six starts. Over 39.0 innings of work, Bauer allowed 10 earned runs and nine walks against 40 strikeouts.

Bauer earned two wins each over the New York Yankees and Boston Red Sox, the top two teams in the AL East Division, as well as one against the Kansas City Royals.

Bauer finished the regular season with a 17-9 record and 4.19 ERA in 32 games, including 31 starts. Over 176.1 innings of work. Bauer registered 196 strikeouts against 60 walks allowed.

During the regular season, Bauer was a standout performer at home, going 10-4 with a 3.93 ERA with 116 strikeouts against 25 walks allowed in 103.0 innings of work in 17 starts at Progressive Field.

Dreaming ahead if the Indians can wrap this up in 3 or 4 games they can then completely reset their pitching rotation for the ACLS. :o

It's gonna end up the Indians starters vs. the Yankees bullpen which has a far better collective era than any of their starters. 13 SOs last night in 8 2/3 innings.

Wouldn't that be a hoot in sunny Cleveland,  Ohio. ;)

I'll take the Tribe's bullpen "IF" Clevinger, Salazar, Miller, Allen are all 100% healthy and ready to roll in October,  should be fun. :)

"IF" Salazar and Miller are 100% ready to roll look out! Remember wio won playoff MVP awards last year plus Francona is a mad scientist with his matchups.

I think the pitching matchups are gonna go

Tanaka vs Bauer
Sabathia vs. Kubler

Gray vs.Carrasco

Wouldn't be surprised if the Yanks get to Bauer in Game 1, Kubler shuts them out in Game 2, and Carrasco edges Gray in Game 3.

Gonna be a great series. I think my yanks fall to the tribe in 4/5 games

I have to say, hats off to the tribe for their starting pitchers.

3 starters with at least 17 wins is incredible.. Not to mention having Andrew Miller in the backend of the pen, shutting down hitters with his nasty combo of fb/slider

Not from NY. Born and raised in Northeastern Pennsylvania. Grew up in the Poconos, moved to Myrtle Beach 4 years ago.

Grew up as a Browns and Yanks fan. I have been to 6 yankee games in my life. 2 at the old stadium, and 4 in the new stadium.

Which team has the edge in the American League Division Series?

http://www.cleveland.com/tribe/index.ssf/2017/10/cleveland_indians_vs_new_york_19.html

CLEVELAND, Ohio — Thursday’s American League Division Series opener between the New York Yankees and Cleveland Indians features two teams that are more evenly matched than some would think.

Beyond statistics, a position-by-position analysis of the matchup suggests each team can claim an edge in several aspects of the game.

Cleveland (102-60) won the season series between the two clubs, 5-2, sweeping a late-August series in the Bronx after splitting four games at Progressive Field earlier that same month.
Offensively, the Yankees (91-71) finished second in the AL in runs scored (858) while Cleveland was third (818). New York led the league with 241 home runs (Cleveland 212), while the Indians finished with a better team batting average (.263 to .262) and higher slugging percentage (.449 to .447).
Cleveland led the AL in nearly every important pitching category, including team ERA (3.30) and strikeouts (1,614), while the Yankees posted a league-low batting average against (.228).
Here is a look at the ALDS matchup with a breakdown of which club has the edge at each spot.

I'm not a big fan of Bauer,, but I think I understand Tito's logic.. if you want to call it that... Hes a bit better than serviceable and you don't have to tire out the better arms on the roster.. That said.. GO TRIBE!!!

Gary Sanchez is a laughably bad catcher. He's got a good arm, but every time I've watched him catch it looks like its the first time he's ever done it.
