The A's carry a three-game winning streak into Cleveland as they open a three-game series with the Indians on Monday.

Oakland will once again be without designated hitter Khris Davis, who has been battling a left hip contusion since crashing into the left-field side wall in Pittsburgh more than two weeks ago. The 31-year-old missed Saturday's game in Detroit before returning to the lineup on Sunday and going 1-for-4.

Davis' swing has clearly been affected by the hip ailment, as he is failing to generate the same torque we're used to seeing. He has also noticeably grimaced on multiple occasions.

Mark Canha will fill in as the A's DH and bat sixth in the lineup. Stephen Piscotty moves up to the cleanup spot and Jurickson Profar will bat fifth.

Left-hander Brett Anderson takes the hill for Oakland, looking for his fifth win of the season. He has found previous success against the Indians, going 3-0 with a 0.82 ERA and 0.76 WHIP in five career starts.

Cleveland will counter with right-hander Carlos Carrasco, who has had his own success against the A's. In six career starts against Oakland, Carrasco is 4-1 with a 2.89 ERA and 0.84 WHIP.
