Kansas City Royals (14-27) at Cleveland Indians (25-15)
Monday, September 7th, 6:10 PM EDT
The Royals and the Indians are marching through opposite paths at the moment. While the Royals are probably thinking about a rebuilding process that could see them contend in around two years, the Indians are built to win now and their record backs that up – they are one of the top teams in the AL Central and have a clear shot at reaching the postseason. The pitching matchup for this game offers interesting variables and it will feature two right-handers with sub-2.00 ERAs, as Zach Plesac will get the ball for the Indians and Brad Keller will start for the Royals. The offenses might be the differential here and, with that in mind, Plesac looks like the better alternative due to the strength of the Indians' lineup.
Emmanuel Clase - Suspension - Suspension
6/25 11:24 AM EST - Clase's suspension will be completed if MLB plays an entire 60-game season in 2020, Paul Hoynes of The Cleveland Plain Dealer reports. Clase was initially slated to serve an 80-game suspension after testing positive for the PED Boldenone, but the suspension won't carry over to 2021 if the league plays their entire 60-game regular season. If the season gets interrupted, negotiations would likely need to reopen in order to determine a timetable for the suspension.
