With the caveat that yes, it’s Spring Training, we have some guys off to hot starts, which is always nice to see. Chew on these numbers on a lazy Sunday:
Michel Brantley, who’s led the team in batting average the last two seasons and signed a five-year extension in the offseason, is off to an 8-for-13 (.615) start.
Jason Kipnis is hitting .385 after a 2-for-4 day Saturday.
Mike Aviles has five hits in nine at-bats.
Elliot Johnson, looking to make the team as a non-roster invitee, is hitting .375 (6-for-16) with a team-high 5 RBI.
Ryan Raburn, who made the club out of Spring Training last year by playing well, is 6-for-10 with two homers. (Raburn will miss a couple days after running into the wall on Friday.
The hot starts extend to the pitching staff:
The Tribe staff as a whole has allowed 28 earned runs in 91 innings, for a 2.77 ERA.
Carlos Carrasco has allowed one earned run in seven innings, with nine strikeouts.
Trevor Bauer, competing with Carrasco for the fifth spot in the Tribe rotation, has struck out seven in five innings.
Corey Kluber has six strikeouts and has allowed two earned runs in six innings.

SCHEDULED TO PITCH AFTER HARANG:
IT’S A SHAME ABOUT RAIN: The Indians and White Sox were rained out yesterday for their scheduled tilt at Camelback Ranch, as Cleveland’s squad was pulled off the bus just prior to the team’s scheduled departure from Goodyear…just one other game on the Cactus League slate was rained out yesterday, a 7:10PM affair between the Cubs and Diamondbacks at Salt River Fields…7 other contests were played to completion, including the Rockies/Reds game here in Goodyear, some of those impacted by rain delays…the Indians experienced one rainout last spring in Surprise, although that contest was called in the top of the 3rd inning with Kansas City holding a 3-2 lead.
THE GREAT ONES ADJUST: In the wake of yesterday’s rainout, Saturday’s list of probables was shifted to today’s game, while several other pitching adjustments were made…JUSTIN MASTERSON had been scheduled to get today’s start against Seattle, but was instead scheduled to throw a sim game this morning at the Goodyear complex along with AUSTIN ADAMS, FRANK HERRMANN and MIKE ZAGURSKI.
THE DOWNEASTER ALEXA: The Indians are set to square off against a team other than Cincinnati for the first time this spring, as they host the Seattle Mariners here at Goodyear Ballpark…Cleveland is 1-6-2 against Seattle in 9 meetings all-time since moving to the Cactus League in 2009…the two clubs split a pair of decisions last spring, as the Tribe finally notched their first ‘W’ in Peoria on March 23 (10-5) after going winless in the first 8 meetings…Cleveland held a 5-2 advantage over the M’s during the 2013 regular season, sweeping a 4-game set at Progressive Field in May before dropping 2 of 3 at Safeco Field in July.
