Wednesday, 7:05 PM, YES: A.J. Burnett (8-8, 4.77 ERA) vs. Fausto Carmona (10-7, 3.51 ERA)
Last start for Burnett: Win over Kansas City 7-1 (5 IP, 4 H, 0 R, 3 K, 1 BB)
**Burnett won his first start against Cleveland this year. He allowed only one earned run over eight innings of work.
Thursday, 7:05 PM, YES: Sergio Mitre (0-3, 3.99 ERA) vs. Mitch Talbot (8-9, 4.08 ERA)
Last start for Mitre: Loss to Kansas City 7-4 (4.1 IP, 7 H, 7 R, 5 ER, 1 K, 1 BB)
**As of now, I’m going to say it’s a complete coin flip to see who starts between Sergio Mitre and Dustin Moseley. Joe Girardi has said that as of now it’s Mitre, but it could change. Mitre has only one inning logged against the Indians in his career, while Moseley has won all three of his starts against them, back from his starting days for the Angels.
Enjoy the series!
