Who is the Cleveland Guardians probable starting pitcher?

It will be Carlos Carrasco taking the mound for the Cleveland Guardians for the first game of their series with the Houston Astros. Carrasco has been serviceable this season, allowing more than three runs just once. The two issues that have plagued Carrasco so far have been walks and high pitch counts early in the game. Cleveland will need Carrasco to harness in his command if they are going to stand a chance in Houston. 

There are only two players in the Astros lineup that have faced Carrasco more than a small handful of times, with some success for Houston. The most successful Astro would be Jose Altuve. The former American League MVP has 11 hits in 32 at-bats, including one home run. Meanwhile, Alex Bregman is 5-19 with one home run and six strikeouts. It will not be easy to limit the damage from Astros hitters, but getting off on the right foot against Altuve should be able to set the tone for the rest of the game.

Who will the Cleveland Guardians lineup face?

The Astros will be calling upon the services of Hunter Brown for Tuesday's matchup. Brown has had a rough go of things early on this season, with 19 runs allowed (20 total) in just 17.2 innings. Things went downhill for Brown after allowing an unearned run in his season debut against the Yankees. Since then, Brown has given up 19 runs in 13.2 innings of work, suggesting that this could be an opportunity for the Guardians to put this game away early if this trend continues, and all indications are that it should.
