Who is the Cleveland Guardians probable starting pitcher?

With the chance to sweep the Oakland Athletics on the line, the Cleveland Guardians are turning to a familiar face who has not pitched for the organization since the 2020 season. Carlos Carrasco. The veteran made the major league roster after Spring Training and has an opportunity in front of him to be a key piece of Cleveland's rotation this season. An injury in spring to Gavin Williams all but cleared a path for Carrasco to make the team, at least for the early portion of the schedule.

The 37-year-old faced Oakland once last season during his time with the New York Mets, allowing two runs on five hits while striking out three and walking one across 5 innings in a 3-2 win. Carrasco has faced a few of the batters in Oakland's lineup previously, limiting non-pitchers to a 3-15 mark while walking JJ Bleday twice.

Who will the Cleveland Guardians lineup face?

Looking to avoid the sweep and notch their first win of the 2024 season, the Oakland Athletics will have Paul Blackburn start game number four. Blackburn faced Cleveland once last season, giving up four runs on nine hits in 5 innings with seven strikeouts and one walk in a 7-6 loss. Jose Ramirez has absolutely owned Blackburn in his career, going 7-13 with three doubles and one home run. Josh Naylor has also been successful, registering three hits in five at-bats.
