Los Angeles Dodgers vs Cleveland Indians Live Stream, TV Channel, Tickets & Preview MLB 2018 Full HD
The Indians (7-6-1) will start Josh Tomlin against left-hander Alex Wood. Tomlin, who won 10 games last season, allowed five runs on six hits in two innings in his last start.
This will be Tomlin’s third start of the spring.
Tribe newcomer Yonder Alonso, making his second straight start, will DH. Alonso, signed to a two-year, $16 million deal in December, is hitting .375 (6-for-16) with two homers and three RBI. Alonso hit his second homer on Wednesday night in an 11-6 loss to the Cubs.
Manager Terry Francona said earlier in camp that catchers Yan Gomes and Roberto Perez have each told him that they want to be the No.1 catcher. They’re hitting like it.
Gomes hit a grand slam Wednesday. He’s hitting .294 (5-for-17) with four RBI this spring. Perez, who will catch Tomlin, is hitting .462 (6-for-13) with one homer and two RBI.
Francona hasn’t given a definitive answer how who will do the bulk of the catching, but it sounds Gomes and Perez are both going to see plenty of playing time.
