April 27 - Indians starting pitcher Corey Kluber has not won in four starts though he only permitted 2 runs in each of his first three. He allowed 6 in his last start. That may have been the result of poor weather conditions however.

Jason Kipnis has gone 4-for-12 against Jason Vargas with 4 RBIs.
Carlos Santana has gone 5-for-16 against Vargas.
April 28 - Trevor Bauer may not be ready to go on Tuesday, but if he does, keep in mind he has only permitted two runs in three starts this season. Alcides Escobar had hit well against Bauer but has not played well over the past week coming off a two-day absence (.227 ERA).
