The Orioles continue to skid, dropping their last nine. They take on the Indians tonight in the third game of this four game series.
A good top half of the lineup for Cleveland that is very dangerous. They’ve been good all year, especially Hafner and Cabrera.
Carrasco comes into tonight’s game with an 8-6 record and OK numbers at best. His walk count is good but his strikeout count is average. He also has a good GB%.
Mixes up his pitches and all of his off-speed are his best whiff pitches. He could get that K/9 up if his fastball had a little more movement (especially that two-seamer) but he really doesn’t get much movement at all.
Reimold is in the DH spot tonight. A team that really cannot hit well and has been struggling for some time.
Simon is coming to start his second game of the season. He’s 1-2 in eight appearances this year and he hasn’t been too effective.
Uses a good variation of pitches, though most are just hard (with good movement). His fastball has a little more movement than his two-seamer (needs to work on that), which isn’t a good thing.
