Indians pitcher Trevor Bauer will have his start pushed back from Game 2 of the ALCS to Game 3 after cutting his right pinky finger while repairing a drone, team president Chris Antonetti told WTAM in Cleveland.

Josh Tomlin will now take the ball for the second game of the series against the Blue Jays.

Bauer designed and built his own drone, according to a story in the Wall Street Journal last week. He began building his first drone in 2014, after drawing inspiration from a race the year prior. He’s made several repairs since then, according to the story.

Bauer, 25, went 12–8 this season with a 4.26 ERA.
