Know Thine Enemy: Let’s Go Tribe

Rookie Kohl Stewart will make his fourth MLB start today. The 23 year old is hoping to improve off his last and longest outing yet of 4 23 innings against the A’s. He has surrendered 3 runs in each of his starts thus far.

Another rookie Adam Plutko makes the start for Cleveland, who has mostly been used as a starter, but has also made a few spot and long relief appearances. He has a little more time on the mound this year than Stewart, going 4-4 with a 5.09 ERA in 53 innings pitched. In his last outing he threw four perfect innings before getting shelled for 5 runs in the 5th.
