CINCINNATI (AP) — The Cleveland Indians lost one of their best pitchers Tuesday when they placed right-hander Trevor Bauer on the 10-day disabled list with a small stress fracture in his right leg.Cleveland is in complete control in the AL Central http://www.astrosfanproshop.com/authentic-jimmy-wynn-jersey , leading second-place Minnesota by 12 1/2 games coming into the day. But any lingering issue with Bauer could hurt its chances of advancing in the playoffs.Bauer was struck by Jose Abreu’s liner in the seventh inning of Saturday night’s 3-1 win at the Chicago White Sox. He returned to Cleveland after experiencing soreness and swelling, and an MRI revealed the injury.Bauer is one of the top candidates for the AL Cy Young Award. The 27-year-old right-hander is 12-6 with a 2.22 ERA in 25 starts. This is his first career DL stint.“Knowing Trev, he’ll keep his arm in shape and he’ll be raring to go whenever he’s ready,” Indians manager Terry Francona said before their game against Cincinnati. “There’s never a good time. But he’ll keep his arm good and strong.”Left-hander Tyler Olson was recalled from Triple-A Columbus to take Bauer’s roster spot. Right-hander Adam Plutko will make his seventh start of the season in place of Bauer on Saturday.Plutko is 4-2 with a 4.75 ERA in nine appearances.Francona said right-hander Josh Tomlin is another candidate to be inserted into the rotation, but would need to be stretched out. Tomlin could return this week from a hamstring strain.Francona said he texted with Bauer on Tuesday afternoon.“He said he was sorry,” Francona said, laughing. “You feel for him. He has put himself in such a good place.”Bauer leads the AL with 166 innings pitched while ranking second with 214 strikeouts and third in ERA. A look at what’s happening around the majors today:NO OPENERS NEEDEDCy Young Award winners Justin Verlander and Corey Kluber will start the AL Division Series between the Astros and Indians at Minute Maid Park in a matchup that figures to buck the October trend of bullpen “openers.”Verlander, a 14-year veteran Francisco Liriano Jersey , believes the AL West champion Astros and AL Central champion Indians have the top two rotations in the AL. He thinks the performance of each team’s starters will be paramount to success.“Us and the Indians probably being 1 and 2, however you like to slice it, us and them, them and us,” he said. “Pick your poison. We both have very defined starters who have a great track record and have good stuff. This should be a really fun series.”ON SALEChris Sale waited eight years to make his first postseason start and then another 365 days for a chance to put that memory behind him. The Red Sox left-hander will open Game 1 of the AL Division Series against the New York Yankees, one year after he was bombarded by the championship-bound Houston Astros in his playoff debut.“Last year, obviously, I got my feet wet. Didn’t do too well. But sometimes you learn from the bad more than the good http://www.astrosfanproshop.com/authentic-charlie-morton-jersey ,” Sale said Thursday, a day before the AL East rivals open their best-of-five series.He’ll oppose J.A. Happ at Fenway Park as the Yankees and Red Sox begin their first postseason series since the 2004 AL Championship Series.THE ACE AWAITSClayton Kershaw pitches Game 2 of the Dodgers‘ NLDS against Atlanta showing no signs that he’s miffed about being passed over for Game 1. Los Angeles manager Dave Roberts went with Hyun-Jin Ryu in the series opener at Dodger Stadium instead of the longtime face of the franchise, setting up Kershaw to pitch on five days of rest. Ryu responded with seven sharp innings in a 6-0 win.Roberts says the vibe with Kershaw is “great.” Kershaw can opt out of the final two years of his contract after the World Series.“Obviously, it’s a huge sacrifice for him,” Roberts said. “But to not let it influence his mind or psyche, that doesn’t surprise me.”Atlanta will counter with veteran Anibal Sanchez.QUIET COLORADOThe Rockies’ bats have gone mostly silent this October, a slump try to snap against Brewers starter Jhoulys Chacin in Game 2 of their NLDS at Miller Park. Colorado had just four hits in a 3-2, 10-inning loss Thursday Andy Pettitte Jersey , two days after beating the Chicago 2-1 in 13 innings in the wild-card game.At least they’ll get a respite from Milwaukee’s vaunted bullpen. Relief pitcher Brandon Woodruff pitched three hitless innings as the “opener” in Game 1 and the bullpen cruised until Jeremy Jeffress‘ ninth-inning hiccup. Chacin will be pitching on three days of rest against left-hander Tyler Anderson.FUTURE LOOKThree Cuban prospects, including top international free agent Victor Victor Mesa, will try out for major league scouts at Marlins Park. Also participating will be Mesa’s brother, Victor Mesa Jr., and pitcher Sandy Gaston. All teams are invited to attend. The Mesas, both outfielders, were recently declared free agents by Major League Baseball and can be signed by any team.
