Bauer (finger) has been confirmed as the starting pitcher for Game 2 of the World Series on Tuesday night.

EDGE Analysis

Bauer did not make it out of the first inning in his last start due to a cut on his finger, but he has not appeared in a game in nine days, and the Indians are confident that his hand will hold up better this time around. Bauer will be looking to snap a streak of seven straight starts -- not counting his last outing -- in which he has allowed three earned runs or more.

Bauer (hand) is on schedule to start Game 2 of the World Series, Jordan Bastian of MLB.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

Bauer threw a 20-pitch bullpen session Monday without any bleeding or pain, so manager Terry Francona went ahead and gave the green light to the right-hander. The 25-year-old will match up against former Cy Young Award-winner Jake Arrieta in Cleveland on Wednesday.

Bauer (hand) is scheduled to start Game 2 of the World Series against the Cubs, although manager Terry Francona said that there's a chance that he won't pitch that game if his injured finger doesn't heal enough over the coming days, ESPN reports.

EDGE Analysis

Bauer said that he would be ready for the World Series, but it seems that Francona still isn't ready to commit to anything until the right-hander can prove that he's completely healthy. If Bauer isn't ready to go for Game 2, he could slide to Game 3 on Thursday while Josh Tomlin takes his spot in the second match.

Bauer (hand) said he'll be ready to pitch at full capacity in the World Series, Zack Meisel of Cleveland.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

Bauer was forced to leave his start in Game 3 of the ALCS only four batters into the game after the wound on his finger reopened. The right-hander seems confident that the issue is behind him though, so as long as no complications arise, it appears that he'll be good to go to face the winner of the Cubs-Dodgers series.

Bauer was forced out of Monday's Game 3 after aggravating a preexisting laceration on his throwing hand, Paul Hoynes of Cleveland.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

Bauer's start was originally pushed back to Game 3 after he cut his pinkie finger in a non-baseball activity. The Indians were unable to stop the blood accumulating from Bauer's hand, and he was ultimately forced to exit the game. He had retired and walked two batters each before being replaced by Dan Otero.

Bauer's start will be pushed back from Game 2 to Game 3 after he sustained a non-baseball injury to his pinkie finger that required several stitches, MLB.com's Jordan Bastian reports.

EDGE Analysis

Josh Tomlin will start Game 2 on Saturday in his place, with Bauer being pushed to Monday in order to give him a couple extra days to let the cut heal. Bauer now lines up to start Game 7 of the ALCS, if necessary.

Bauer will start Game 2 of the ALCS against the Blue Jays, Paul Hoynes of Cleveland.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

Bauer got the nod for Game 1 of the ALDS with Corey Kluber still recovering from a groin injury, but with Kluber back to full health, the Indians decided to bump Bauer to Game 2. The 25-year-old seems to be lined up to face J.A. Happ on Saturday.

Bauer will start Game 1 of the ALDS on Thursday, Paul Hoynes of the Cleveland Plain Dealer reports.

EDGE Analysis

Corey Kluber lobbied to start the opener but he's still working his way back from a quad issue, and the team ultimately decided Bauer is better prepared to handle a possible Game 4 assignment on short rest. Bauer has struggled since the All-Star break, especially with walks and the long ball, but he got back on track with a quality start (three runs, nine strikeouts in six innings) Saturday in his final regular-season appearance.

Bauer's next start has been pushed to Saturday against the Royals, MLB.com's Jordan Bastian reports.

EDGE Analysis

The Indians have shaken up their rotation over the final six days of the season after clinching the division Monday. This move means Bauer could start Game 1 of the ALDS on normal rest if Corey Kluber (groin) can't make that start.

Bauer (11-7) allowed six runs on six hits and a walk with seven strikeouts over 5.1 innings in a loss Tuesday to the White Sox.

EDGE Analysis

Bauer was dealing through five innings, as he had allowed just one lone run and had induced nine groundouts to go with six strikeouts. But he lost his grip in the sixth, as he issued a walk and four singles before he was finally lifted. His bullpen didn't help him out, as all three runners he left on base would eventually score. Bauer has shown flashes of brilliance that have helped him put together a career best 4.06 ERA, but his inconsistency continues to hold him back from reaching the next level.
