Ben Gamel is slated to bat leadoff for Cleveland in their Saturday bout with the Tigers.

Fantasy Impact: The Indians went with Jordan Luplow as their leadoff man on Opening Day, who drew the leadoff duties against a lefty, Matthew Boyd. While Gamel seems to be taking the role against a righty, Julio Tehran. This could very well be a trend for the season.
