Bieber has been solid for the Indians after stumbling in the month of July. He has posted a 2.70 ERA in August while leading Cleveland to a pair of wins in three starts. The Indians have won four of his six road starts this season.

Eovaldi convinced the Red Sox to trade for him by posting a 4.26 ERA in 10 starts with the Tampa Bay Rays earlier this season. Eovaldi has been solid since arriving in Boston. He has won three of his four starts while giving up one earned run or fewer in three of those outings.

Along with his solid record he has a 1.04 WHIP this season

Neither starter has faced his opponent this season. With both the Red Sox and Indians on a potential playoff collision course, this should be an intriguing matchup on Tuesday night.

PREDICTION: Red Sox 4, Indians 2
