Indians' Mike Aviles in, Jose Ramirez out of lineup Sunday
|by R.J. White | CBSSports.com|
|(9:55 am ET) Indians infielder Mike Aviles is in the starting lineup Sunday, batting second and playing shortstop in his team's matchup with the Tigers.
Aviles is seeing just his second start of the season at shortstop, as most of his work has come in the oufield. He'll take the place of Jose Ramirez, who had started 10 straight games coming into Sunday.
The Indians have also made a change at the top of the lineup, moving second baseman Jason Kipnis to the leadoff spot. Kipnis and Aviles batted 1-2 in the team's last start against a southpaw, and lefty Kyle Lobstein is on the mound of the Tigers Sunday. Center fielder and typical leadoff man Michael Bourn will bat ninth.
The Indians are road favorites (-115) in Detroit Sunday.

|by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com|
|(4/11/15) Indians outfielder Michael Brantley was not included in the starting lineup for Saturday's contest against Detroit, per FOX Sports Ohio.
Brantley returned from a two-game absence due to lower back stiffness on Friday, but revealed that he's still experiencing some discomfort. Manager Terry Francona also added on Friday that he would give Brantley some occasional days of rest moving forward. On Saturday Francona revealed that both sides have discussed about a possible stint on the disabled list, but "no one thinks it's needed," per the Northeast Ohio Media Group.
"He wants to play so bad," Francona said. "I just think we need to let this thing settle down, whether that's today, today and tomorrow, we'll see."
With Brantley sidelined, the Indians will have Ryan Raburn at DH, Mike Aviles in left field, and Jerry Sands in right field.
