Cleveland Indians catcher Lou Marson has a cervical-neck strain, the result of a home-plate collision. Marson left in the fourth, one inning after Tampa Bay's Desmond Jennings collided with him in Saturday night's game. Jennings tried to score from third on Matt Joyce's grounder, but Marson held on to third baseman Lonnie Chisenhall's throw for the out. Designated hitter Carlos Santana replaced Marson, which meant that starting pitcher Trevor Bauer was inserted into the lineup. Bauer struck out in the fifth.

Rays blank Cleveland again, Tribe falls 6-0 in Bauer’s debut

Trevor Bauer’s Indians debut could’ve been worse. It sure could’ve been better. But all things considered, it could’ve been much worse.

Trevor Bauer: Indians prospect has crazy start, is optioned back to triple-A

You may have heard of Indians’ pitching prospect Trevor Bauer when he was drafted out of UCLA because of his excellent fastball and unorthodox mechanics.

Or maybe he crossed your radar when he went 1-2 with a 6.06 ERA and was subsequently...

First Take on Trevor Bauer

  Trevor Bauer's first career major league start with the Indians will forever be remembered as him being the first pitcher to walk the first four batters of a game since John Danks of the White Sox in 2009 and the first Indian since Bartolo Colon.
