Relax. It's a day game after a night game. That's often when a manager gives his catcher a day off. Catcher is a very demanding position, and they won't be effective the whole season if they don't get some time off each week.

Remember, the Indians management isn't concerned about your fantasy team. He wants to win actual baseball games. He's doing what he thinks will win him the most ball games over the course of the season, and that generally means giving catchers the day off.
