Tigers offense stalls in 3-2 loss to Indians

As a guest on MLB Network Radio, Indians Manager Terry Francona said "it is no secret" that the team was leaning towards placing ace Corey Kluber on the disabled list.

The Cleveland Indians finish their Major League Baseball series at the Motor City versus the Detroit Tigers on Thursday. Kluber had gone at least six innings in each of his first five starts. Cabrera homered Tuesday after returning from a groin problem, but he was removed from that game in the late innings. Fulmer was the AL Rookie of the Year last season, but he went just 1-2 with a 6.98 ERA against the Indians.

Turner (1-0) replaced Gonzalez in the sixth and finished out the game, striking out four and allowing two hits.

The Detroit Tigers have the reputation of being an explosive offense but their offense was quiet Wednesday and the pitching tried to get a win versus the visiting Indians but it was not to be.

Mike Clevinger, who started for the Clippers on May 2, is likely to be recalled to make Kluber's next scheduled start on May 7 in Kansas City. He connected for a solo shot in the sixth off Trevor Williams, the catcher's first homer since September 23, 2014 - a span of 117 at-bats. The Pirates left the bases loaded in the second and the fourth. Zimmermann has allowed five earned runs in three of his five starts this season. Or they could play a day-night doubleheader to preserve the off-day. Andrew McCutchen hit a two-run homer in the seventh off Cody Reed.
