Ryan Raburn LF/RF.. CLE 1 Day

Ryan Raburn went 0-for-3 before being lifted for a pinch-hitter on Wednesday.

Raburn would supposed to get considerable playing time against righties in addition to his duties against lefties, particularly once Carlos Santana won the third base job. However, his slow start, combined with Lonnie Chisenhall's much better one, has changed that in a hurry. He'll likely be limited to starting against southpaws until he heats up and maybe even afterwards.

Ryan Raburn went 3-for-4 and drove in four runs in the Indians' 16-4 drubbing of the Padres on Friday.

Between DHing and playing some right field against lefties, Raburn could be a fixture in the Indians' early season lineup. Giving him a chance to prove 2013 was no fluke isn't a bad idea. That said, the Indians will likely prove better off playing Lonnie Chisenhall over him against righties.
