Trevor Bauer scratched from start due to illness

According to Jordan Bastian of MLB.com, Indians right-hander Trevor Bauer was a late-scratch from his scheduled start against the Tigers this afternoon due to illness. TJ House will start in his place.

Bauer attempted to do some long-tossing during warm-ups, but just didn’t feel up to it. It’s unclear when he’ll pitch next. Carlos Carrasco was pulled after five innings during his most recent start due to “general tightness,” but he’s currently lined up to go tomorrow.

Bauer has thrived despite control issues early this season, posting a 0.95 ERA with 26 strikeouts and 11 walks in 19 innings across his first three starts.
