Pitcher Trevor Bauer cuts fin­ger, won’t start

Daily Freeman (Kingston, NY) - - SPORTS -

Man­ager Terry Fran­cona’s jug­gling act with the In­di­ans’ ro­ta­tion keeps get­ting more dif­fi­cult.

Trevor Bauer won’t start Game 2 of the ALCS against Toronto af­ter he cut the pinkie fin­ger on his right pitch­ing hand Fri­day. Bauer’s in­jury is the lat­est for the In­di­ans’ staff, which lost Car­los Car­rasco and Danny Salazar to in­juries late in the reg­u­lar sea­son.

Cleve­land said in a re­lease on Fri­day that Bauer needed sev­eral stitches to close the cut from a “non-base­ball re­lated in­jury.” There is no im­me­di­ate word on how the enig­matic Bauer, who likes to build and fly drones, got hurt.

Josh Tom­lin, who was sched­uled to pitch Game 3 in Toronto on Mon­day, will re­place Bauer on Satur­day. Bauer is slated to pitch Mon­day when the best-of-7 se­ries re­sumes at Rogers Cen­tre.
