The Indians Starting Rotation is on Fire, Is it Enough to Get Them to the World Series?

4. Mike Clevinger

Despite going just 9-7, Clevinger’s numbers deserve to be better, as he boasts a 3.25 ERA, and has allowed just 10 earned runs in his last six starts.

How the Indians handle him in the postseason will be interesting, as last year he was in the pen despite many fans believing that he should have started one of the games in the ALDS against the Yankees.

There’s no question that he’s earned his mark in 2018 as a force in the rotation, and he should get a start in the postseason if not more than one depending on how far the team advances.

In back-to-back starts against the Astros, a team that the Indians very well might wind up playing in October, he was 0-2 allowing eight earned runs in 11.2 innings. It was back in late May and it is a small sample size, but it’s something to keep in mind.
