It's a big weekend for the Indians, as the Tribe heads to Detroit to take on the Tigers for a three game set. The series opener features a match up of two interesting young pitchers.

The Indians turn to Danny Salazar, who is coming off a fantastic debut against the Twins. Salazar earned the victory, striking out 10 and giving up two runs over six innings. It was his first start in the majors, as he began the year with AAA Columbus after struggling during spring training. Another strong outing would be a huge plus going forward for Salazar and the Tribe.

Shane Greene will start for the Tigers and is looking to become the first Tigers pitcher to win his first four starts of the season since Frank Tanana in 1988. He enters with a dazzling 0.39 ERA.

The Indians will send 8 left-handed batters out to face Greene, with catcher Roberto Perez being the only right-handed starter in the lineup.
