Cleveland Indians @ Minnesota Twins

The Indians try to take the series with the Twins this afternoon. TJ House, who was rocked by Detroit in his first start, will try to bounce back. Trevor May, who also struggled in his first start, will try to do likewise. May faced the Indians twice last season, with his first outing going well (5.0 IP, 2 ER) and his second not so well (4.2 IP, 7 ER) May was included in many Top 100 prospects list prior to the 2012 season after a fine 2011 campaign while in the Phillies organization, but hasn't been as effective in the high minors. He was dealt to the Twins in December of 2012 as part of the Ben Revere deal. To this point the Twins haven't got much of a return for Revere, though the other player in the deal - Vance Worley - had a nice 2014 season for the...Pittsburgh Pirates.
