DETROIT-No snow is expected for Saturday’s game between the Indians and the Tigers. The same is true for 32 degrees weather.
One person who may be disappointed by these circumstances is Zach Plesac, who will start the second game of the season at Comerica Park.
The Indians lost the season opener 3-2 on Thursday. The first few rounds took place on the snowball. The first pitch is 32 degrees.
Shane Bieber, who grew up in southern California, handled it well. He lost but eliminated 1
For Bieber, this is a new experience, but not for Plesac. He grew up in Crown Point, Indiana.
“In the first three weeks of our high school, it was like coming home,” Plesak said before the opener. “I’m even talking to some other people in the Midwest about this kind of weather. “It’s like going back to high school, back to today, growing up. For us, this is a good enthusiasm.
“We’ve played in this cold weather before. If there is no wind, then cold is not a factor. You throw the ball there, pitch the ball. The only time you need to worry about keeping warm is between innings.”
According to the forecast, the game at 1:10 pm on Saturday will be 61 degrees, partly cloudy. This is a heat wave, but Plesac is ready. Last year, he scored 4-2 with a 2.28 ERA in eight games, winning for the Indians. He shot 57 and walked 6 in 55 1/3 innings. He voted .191 against the opposition.
“I’m the same person,” Plesac said when asked if he made any adjustments during the winter. “I will be full of energy… I will do it anyway.
“I have a better understanding of what I need to do to make sure everything is ready. I have a better understanding of how I deliver. I think I have grown in full from last year. I will still be the same player. I want to be aggressive, and I want to stand firm.”
First place: Francisco Lindor’s contract
The news that Lindor signed a 10-year, $341 million contract renewal with the Mets did not attract the attention of the Indians.
“I’m happy for Frankie. I’m really happy for Frankie. Very good.” Manager Terry Francona said.
On January 7, the Indians traded Lindor to the Mets with Carlos Carrasco. They acquired Andres Gimenez and Amed Rosario and two potential customers. Carrasco has opened up the list of injuries due to a hamstring strain.
During a workout at Comerica Park on Wednesday, third baseman Jose Ramirez was asked if he thought he was the best contract in baseball, and third baseman Nolan Arenado, who signed with the Cardinals and the Rockies, had a contract and Lindor’s upcoming contract. Compared with the signed contract.
“I congratulate Arenado and (Lindo) for winning these contracts. They worked hard for this,” Ramirez said through a translator, Agustin Rivero. “I am right I am satisfied with my contract.”
Ramirez has been among the top three in the AL MVP voting for three of the past four years. Arenado signed an eight-year, $260 million deal in 2019, and Lindo has never experienced it like this. Ramirez’s revenue this year is 9.4 million U.S. dollars, of which the value of club options will be 11 million U.S. dollars in 2021 and 13 million U.S. dollars in 2022.
When asked about his motivation, Ramirez said: “It’s very simple. I really like this. That’s my motivation. I like playing baseball.”
Point 2: Alternate website schedule
Indian players at the alternate location of Huntington Park in Columbus can start playing the game as early as Monday. The team sent 33 players to Columbus on Thursday.
The schedule for these games is almost complete. The team can play up to four games a week. Travel is limited to cars or buses. These games can keep players sharp until the start of the AAA season in May. Due to the coronavirus, Major League Baseball has postponed the Triple-A game originally scheduled to start on April 6.
Third place: last
