The Cleveland Indians are running out of time to make the playoffs, so they have to make something happen during this week's home games against Seattle and Texas.

Trevor Bauer, Corey Kluber and Zach McAllister will start on the next three nights. Seattle will counter with Hisashi Iwakuma, Felix Hernandez and Chris Young.

However, the weekend series against Texas is also very important. Justin Masterson has to do something positive starting on Friday, for his sake and for Cleveland's. Danny Salazar will start on Saturday, followed by Bauer on Sunday.

Jason Kipnis and Carlos Santana have been the American League Player of the Week for the past two weeks. No matter who gets hot this week, the Tribe's starting pitching will determine whether Cleveland (52-53) can climb back into the playoff race.
