In a different division, Cleveland would be a lot more worried than they are currently. The team has been slumping, just 3-7 in their last ten. But Kansas City has slumped as well, so they’ve actually increased their lead to 3.5 games over suddenly hot Minnesota over the same period.
The Indians picked up Jay Bruce from the Mets on Thursday to shore up the outfield after Michael Brantley went down with an injury earlier in the week.
Tampa has also been struggling of late. They lost four of five to Boston and Milwaukee heading into Thursday’s game. The Rays won the opener of this series, 4-1 on Thursday. They broke open a 1-1 game in the bottom of the eighth on the strength of a three-run homer by Corey Dickerson.
Carlos Carrasco (10-5, 4.06 ERA) has now allowed 10 earned runs in 7.1 innings over his last two starts. He gave up five in 5.2 in an 8-1 loss to the Yankees last time out. The Indians have lost four of his last five games. Up till this recent stretch he’d been one of the better pitchers in the AL.
Jake Faria (5-2, 2.81 ERA) is 11 starts into his MLB career and he’s looked pretty solid. He had a bit of a rough patch to end July, allowing ten earned runs in 16.1 innings over three starts, but last time out gave up one run in six innings in a 2-0 loss to the Brewers.
