Trevor Bauer won’t start Game 2 of the ALCS against Toronto after he cut the pinkie finger on his right pitching hand Friday. Bauer’s injury is the latest for the Indians’ staff, which lost Carlos Carrasco and Danny Salazar to injuries late in the regular season.
Trevor Bauer lacerated his pinky on the outside of his right hand repairing a drone according to Antonetti.
Cleveland has made a change to game 2 starter. Trevor Bauer cut his finger repairing a drone (no lie) and has multiple stitches in pinky
Terry Francona on what happened with Trevor Bauer: “It’s pretty self-explanatory. We’ve all, at some point, had a drone-related problem.”
Bauer made his post-season debut in the AL Division Series opener and pitched into the fifth inning against Boston. Earlier this season, the right-hander came out of the bullpen and pitched five innings of shutout ball when the Indians outlasted the Blue Jays in 19 innings.
Francona has been forced to adjust his rotation for weeks after Carrasco (broken hand) and Salazar (forearm tightness) sustained injuries as the Indians were closing in on their first AL Central title since 2007.
Corey Kluber is pitching Game 1 against Toronto’s Marco Estrada. The Indians plan to use Mike Clevinger in Game 4, but they aren’t sure how long he can pitch because he’s only gone in short stints this season and isn’t stretched out.
Francona has had to rely on his bullpen to carry the Indians.
Tomlin started Cleveland’s series-clinching win in the ALDS against Boston and effectively pitched into the sixth inning of his post-season debut despite the crowd at Fenway Park taunting him throughout his outing.
