The Phranchise has a 7.59 ERA in his last two games (10.2 ip, 9 er). Hitters have adjusted to his fastball-heavy arsenal (86.2%) - now it's time for him to re-adjust and throw more off-speed pitches.

A-Rod's getting the night off, despite having great numbers against Carmona; Granderson couldn't return at a better time though, for he kills Carmona (1.370 OPS).

Only six Indians have ever faced Hughes, with a combined 20 PA (and .800 OPS).
