Series Preview #1: Cleveland Indians (0-0) at Houston Astros (0-0)

April 6, 2015 |

Corey Kluber and Carlos Carrasco certainly have a few million things to smile about these days as the long awaited 2015 Major League Baseball season gets under way for the Cleveland Indians this week.

Kluber and Carrasco were both rewarded for their strong showings last season with contract extensions over the weekend, locking the players up on team and player friendly deals for the foreseeable future.
