Minor-league pitcher Andre Rienzo is in Cleveland, and is expected to be promoted to make the start. Even if the White Sox haven't traded Peavy by game time, they likely won't risk an injury by starting him.
Struggles the second time around in a lineup continued to plague Chen as his earned run average was elevated to 7.45 on the season. He retired the first 12 batters he faced before the first five reached base in the fifth.
Chen never made it through that inning as he was stung by a single by David Murphy and double by Asdrubal Cabrera, both of which drove in two runs. He will have a chance to redeem himself next Wednesday against Toronto.
Kluber lowered his earned run average from 5.40 to 3.90 with the four-hitter in which he threw just 101 pitches, walked none and struck out 11. He has yielded nine earned runs in 32 innings since a disastrous first start of the season in Oakland.
The last Indians pitcher to throw a complete game at home with 11 or more strikeouts and no walks was Len Barker in 1981. And that was a perfect game.
Kluber will seek to maintain his momentum in his next start Tuesday against the host Angels.
Edwards is scheduled to undergo an MRI to determine the extent of the issue. Edwards came over to the club in the Matt Garza deal, and was considered the team's top pitching prospect in 2014.
Figaro gave up one run over three innings in his brief stint with the club. With Brandon Kintzler coming back from the disabled list, the team needed to make room at the major-league level.
Kintzler was dealing with a rotator cuff issue, but was able to return at the earliest possible date. He's given up two hits, and no runs, over five innings.
What was expected is now offial:
Ramirez rebounded late in his last start against Houston, but that was not enough to save him from demotion. He gave up 18 earned runs in his first 20 innings pitched in 2014. He is 1-3 with a 6.75 ERA on the year.
Three poor performances in four outings for
"If it's on his mind, that's a little bit of a red flag," Gibbons told the MLB Radio Network. "The ball is coming out good, the stuff's good."
The results are not good. Aside from a six-inning shutout performance in a defeat of Baltimore, he has given up 13 runs on 19 hits in 10 2/3 innings. He failed to exceed four innings pitched in any of those starts.
Uribe is 1 for 16 since slugging a home run against Arizona on April 18. His batting average, which had stood at .379 three days earlier, has slid to .310. But he still owns an impressive slugging percentage of .512, which is higher than he has achieved in any full season since 2002.
