Indians look for good start vs. Athletics

CLEVELAND -- The Cleveland Indians, whose highly regarded but so far underachieving rotation continues to be in a state of flux, welcome the Oakland Athletics to Progressive Field on Monday for the first contest of a four-game series.

Cleveland's rotation, which had the second-best starters' ERA in the American League last year at 4.08, has been a big reason for the club's slow start this season. Indians starters are last in the AL with a 4.89 ERA.

Part of the problem has been the absence of Corey Kluber, on the disabled list since May 3 with a lower back strain. Kluber will be activated to start the Thursday game against the A's.
