The Indians have 15 games left this season with their streak standing at 22 after Thursday night’s win over the Royals. Could they make this a 37-game winning streak?
Of course that’s unlikely, but they’re not scheduled to face a starting pitcher the rest of the season who would immediately make you think the Indians won’t win that game.
The 15 starting pitchers that Cleveland is expected to face have combined for a 4.65 ERA this season, which would rank 49th out of 65 qualified starters this year.
The Indians are scheduled to face just three starters with an ERA of less than 4.00 (and one of those is Lucas Giolito, who has made five starts this season).
They are scheduled to face five starters with an ERA of more than 5.00 (and two of those have an ERA at 6.00 or higher).
Cleveland is likely to face Ricky Nolasco, who has allowed the third most home runs in the majors this season (34).
The 15 starters have allowed a .788 OPS this season. That’s the same OPS that the Padres’ Wil Myers has this year.
