De Aza has been scuffling at the plate lately, collecting just three hits in his last 24 at-bats. But he returns to the lineup Wednesday, affording Delmon Young a day of rest.
Fielder doubled in a pair of runs in the opening frame off starter Scott Feldman for his only hit of the evening. He finished 1 for 4 with two RBI, extending his modest hitting streak to five games. He is hitting .350 (36 for 103) with four homers, 13 RBI and a .407 on-base percentage through his first 26 games.
Headley is expected to be back in the lineup Wednesday.
"I'll be fine," Headley said.
Headley is hitting .247 with 10 RBI in 97 at-bats this season.
"It's a slowly progressing healing process for John," Silverman said.
Jaso is currently on the 60-day DL with a wrist injury. He is yet to play in a game this season for Tampa Bay after hitting .264 with nine home runs in 2014.
His anger has nothing to do with his play on the field. It has everything to do with a member of the Red Sox security staff giving Boston fan Mike Shuster several of his signed souvenirs in exchange for the ball Yankees DH Alex Rodriguez sent over the Green Monster on Friday night to tie Willie Mays for fourth place on the all-time home run list.
Ortiz assured that he didn't feel any anger toward Rodriguez. He simply wanted to give permission for any of his autographs to be handed out.
"That is not OK with me at all," he told the New York Daily News. "That's not the way it's supposed to work. They're supposed to ask me before any of my [items] get offered to anyone. ... It's not because they were doing this for A-Rod's ball. It's because they're supposed to ask me before any of my [expletive] get offered to anyone."
"I talked to Bourny today a little bit about it," Francona said prior to Tuesday's game, per MLB.com. "And this is just in the near future, because we really want Bourny to be our center fielder, but it's been a struggle for him against lefties."
It will be Brantley's first start in center field this season after drawing 44 starts there in 2014. The Indians are currently the underdogs (+110) against Kansas City.
Swisher is yet to play in a game this season with the injury. He hit .208 with 42 RBI in 360 at-bats in 2014. With the roster move, Cleveland decided to option outfielder Tyler Holt to Triple-A Columbus. Holt went 0 for 3 with the Indians this season.
In 51 at-bats this season, Paredes is batting a robust .353 with three homers and 10 RBI. He has been a revelation early on, and should continue to see regular playing time while his bat stays hot.
Eaton was replaced by J.B. Shuck for the last three days. Eaton was dealing with a 103 temperature for the last three days and lost 10 pounds because of the illness. He is hitting .192 with three doubles in 78 at-bats this season.
Laroche is hitting .211 with three home runs and nine RBI in 76 at-bats.
The White Sox are currently the favorites (-115) against Detroit Tuesday.
On the season, DeJesus is batting .259 with a home run and 10 RBI. He snapped a five-game hitless streak by going 2 for 4 on Monday.
