The Cleveland Indians are opening the 2014 Major League Baseball season on the road against the Oakland Athletics. Unfortunately that means traveling to O.co Coliseum which dealt with more plumbing issues recently.
The Athletics are sending Sonny Gray to the mound to face off against the Indians’ Justin Masterson.
“He’s a very driven guy, takes nothing for granted. If he has a good start he wants to go out and improve upon that,” A’s manager Bob Melvin said. “You watch his bullpen, there’s a lot of intensity to that. He’s not a guy you have to motivate because he’s very motivated, and that makes my job and Curt’s (Young) job very easy. He’s always been a guy that’s been basically a No. 1 guy wherever he’s pitched, so he’s not foreign to that even though we’re not putting that pressure on him to have to be a No. 1.”
