May 25 The Indians are expected to activate Westbrook to take Fausto Carmona's place in the rotation, which has an AL-best 3.21 ERA this season.
Advice: Westbrook has been out since April 22 with a strained muscle near his left ribcage. At the time Carmona was injured in Cleveland, Westbrook was pitching six scoreless innings on a rehab assignment at Double-A Akron.
He was pitching well before the ribcage injury. Is Westbrook going to be a reliable pitcher this year? All I need is for him to be a good #3 pitcher because I've got Dice-K and Volquez. Can I expect 20 starts for him this year? Maybe like a 12-6 season?
