Indians' Trevor Bauer: Nearly ready to return
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bauer (lower leg) felt good after a simulated game Tuesday and is nearly ready to return to game action, Jordan Bastian of MLB.com reports.

Bauer has been out since mid-August after suffering a lower-leg fracture. He believes he's ready to return now, though it remains to be seen whether or not the team agrees. Cleveland has already clinched a playoff berth, so the team has little to play for over the last two weeks of the season, though Bauer could likely use an outing or two before the playoffs start. When he does return, it could be in a bullpen capacity.

Indians' Edwin Encarnacion: Remains out Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Encarnacion (ankle) remains out of the lineup Tuesday against the White Sox, Jordan Bastian of MLB.com reports.

Encarnacion was pulled from Saturday's game against the Tigers with a mild right ankle sprain. He sat out Sunday's contest, and even after an off day Monday he remains out of the lineup. It's unclear when he's expected to return, but the Indians can afford to be cautious, as they've already clinched a playoff berth. Yandy Diaz will be the designated hitter Tuesday.

Indians' Adam Plutko: Heads to bullpen
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Plutko made a relief appearance in Sunday's 6-4 loss to the Tigers, working around two base hits to toss a scoreless ninth inning.

Plutko's previous five outings had come as a starter, with the right-hander turning in a 6.26 ERA and 1.35 WHIP across 27.1 innings during that stretch. While there hasn't been any formal announcement of Plutko's removal from the rotation, that appears to be a safe conclusion to draw since he hasn't started since Sept. 8. Moreover, Josh Tomlin was summoned from the bullpen to make a spot start over the weekend and is scheduled to take the hill again Thursday against the White Sox, according to Daryl Van Schouwen of the Chicago Sun-Times. With Tomlin now looking like the Tribe's new No. 5 starter, expect Plutko to fill a mop-up role in relief over the final two weeks of the regular season.

Indians' Josh Tomlin: Receives another start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Tomlin is scheduled to start Thursday's series finale against the White Sox, Daryl Van Schouwen of the Chicago Sun-Times reports.

Tomlin picked up his first start with the big club since mid-May over the weekend against the Tigers, tossing four innings and giving up two runs on five hits and two walks. It wasn't clear if it was merely a spot start for Tomlin or if he would stick in the rotation going forward, but the fact that he's in line to take the hill again Wednesday suggests he's replaced Adam Plutko as the Tribe's fifth starter. Though Tomlin may pick up an additional start in the final week of the season, he'll likely head to the bullpen once the postseason begins and Cleveland shortens its rotation to four men.

Indians' Trevor Bauer: Could pitch out of bullpen in playoffs
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Team president Chris Antonetti told MLB Network Radio that Bauer (lower leg) could pitch out of the bullpen during the playoffs. "It's definitely something we talked about," Antonetti said.

The Indians aren't quite ready to make a decision regarding Bauer's role once he returns, as the team wants to see how the right-hander responds to an increased workload first. He threw a 40-pitch bullpen session over the weekend and is expected to face live hitters Tuesday for the first time since suffering a stress fracture in his right fibula in mid-August. While Bauer is making encouraging progress, he may not have enough time to fully build back up to a starter's workload before the end of the season, which would leave him to fill a high-leverage, multi-inning relief role for the Indians.
