The fans at Progressive Field will be treated to a game between the Tampa Bay Rays and the Cleveland Indians when they take their seats on Tuesday.

The Rays will trot Jake Odorizzi out to the mound in this one. Right hander Odorizzi has a 2-2 record and a 2.61 ERA this season.

Meanwhile, it’ll be Danny Salazar who starts for the Indians. Right hander Salazar is 2-3 with a 5.20 ERA so far this season.

Odorizzi was saddled with the loss after yielding one run, four hits and two walks while striking out four in six innings of a 6-0 loss to Kansas City on Thursday. The 27-year-old Illinois native permitted nine hits and three walks with 16 strikeouts in 18 innings since missing time because of a hamstring injury. Odorizzi is 0-1 with a 2.92 ERA in three starts versus Cleveland and fares well versus designated hitter Edwin Encarnacion (4-for-27, home run, double, three walks).

Salazar also allowed five hits and two walks while striking out four in 2 2/3 innings but didn’t take the loss in the Indians’ 8-7 setback in Toronto on Wednesday. The 27-year-old has a 14.14 ERA and a batting average against of .429 in seven first innings this season but a 3.07 ERA and .226 average against in all other frames. Salazar is 2-0 with a 0.66 ERA, 0.73 WHIP and .111 batting average against in two turns – one apiece in 2015 and 2016 – versus Tampa Bay.

Oddsmakers currently have the Indians listed as 162-moneyline favorites versus the Rays, while the game’s total is sitting at 7½.

The Cleveland Indians may have found a way to get Jason Kipnis going as they prepare to host the Tampa Bay Rays on Tuesday in the middle contest of their three-game series. Kipnis, who missed the first 15 games of the season with a shoulder injury, is 5-for-8 with two home runs, four RBIs, two runs scored, a double and two walks in two contests since being moved to the leadoff spot, increasing his batting average to .203.

Cleveland (20-17), the defending American League champion, scored eight runs for the third time in five games in Monday’s 8-7 victory. Tampa Bay (19-22), which has alternated wins and losses in its last six games and is 3-6 in its past nine contests, is also showing more pop of late with 25 runs in its last four games. The Rays’ Jake Odorizzi is 1-1 with a 1.50 ERA in three starts since returning from the disabled list and allowed one run or fewer in his last four turns, and opposes Danny Salazar, who recorded only 7 1/3 innings over his past two outings (0-1) and a season-high five earned runs last time out. The Indians need innings out of Salazar after Carlos Carrasco, Monday’s starter, left after 3 2/3 innings because of tightness in his left pectoral.

In their last action, Cleveland was a 8-7 winner on the road against the Rays. Bettors on Cleveland at -153 on the moneyline collected their winnings from that game, while the total score (15) sent OVER bettors home happy as well.
