T.J. House was brilliant in Friday's Cactus League victory over the Cubs, punching out six while surrendering just one run on two hits over 4 2/3 innings of work.
The 25-year-old is currently battling for one of the final spots in the Tribe's Opening Day rotation, and a few more strong showings like this should do the trick. He made 18 starts for the Indians in 2014, compiling a 3.35 ERA, 1.32 WHIP and 80/22 K/BB ratio across 102 innings. Mar 13 - 7:32 PM

T.J. House allowed one run over five innings in Sunday's 7-2 win over the Rays.

House gave up just five hits on the afternoon, with Sean Rodriguez' solo home run counting as the only run against him. The win moved him to 5-3 with a 3.35 ERA through 102 innings this year. House may have inserted himself into the starting rotation discussion in Cleveland next year with his strong performance in 2014.

T.J. House scattered six hits and allowed two runs over five innings in Saturday's 7-3 win over the Twins.

This was a much needed win for the Indians, as they desperately attempt to cling to life in the Wild Card race heading into the final week. They're currently 3.5 back of the final playoff slot. House wasn't spectacular, but he mostly held the Twins at bay during his time on the mound. Both of the runs on his line came off of RBI grounders and he was able to limit the damage to singular runs. In addition to the six hits allowed, House walked one and struck out five. In September, House has allowed just three runs in 19 innings. He holds a 3.43 ERA and 1.34 WHIP overall. By the time he takes the mound for his final start of the regular season against the Rays next weekend, House and the Indians should know whether they have any shot at the playoffs.

The Indians will skip T.J. House's next turn in the rotation following last week's rainout.

House holds a 0.86 ERA over his last three outings, but they can make this move in order to limit his innings a bit and also set him up to start against the Twins, who he has a 1.56 ERA in three starts against this season. "We wanted to stay right-handed against Houston," said manager Terry Francona. "Then when we get to Minnesota, we'll insert T.J. Rather than push guys back that don't need to be pushed back, we'll let him pitch against a team that maybe matches up better against him. It's all because of the double header."

T.J. House allowed four hits over seven innings as the Indians beat the Twins 2-0 in the second game of Thursday's doubleheader.

The Indians swept the doubleheader, outscoring the Twins 10-2 on the day. House has gone seven innings in three straight outings after never doing so in his first 13 starts of the year, and he's lowered his ERA from 4.18 to 3.42 during the span. Mixed leaguers might want to give him a try when he faces the Astros next week.

Wednesday night's game between the Twins and Indians has been postponed due to storms in Cleveland.

It will be made up as part of a traditional doubleheader on Thursday. Indians lefty T.J. House was set to square off against Twins right-hander Kyle Gibson. Those two will face each other in the early game on Thursday afternoon.

T.J. House allowed one run over seven innings on Friday.

House was dinged on an Alexei Ramirez solo home run in the third, but was otherwise able to escape trouble. He scattered seven hits over six innings, striking out seven without walking a batter. House has managed to keep his ERA under 4.00 despite allowing a .294 BAA. He'll try to keep the good times/luck rolling as he takes his 3.71 ERA and 1.40 WHIP against the Twins in his next outing.

T.J. House was terrific on Sunday, hurling seven innings of one-run ball in a no-decision against the Royals in Kansas City.

House struck out five on the night without issuing a free pass. The only damage against him came on a sacrifice fly off the bat of Alex Gordon in the first inning, but he managed to shut down the Royals completely the rest of the night. House left with a 2-1 lead, but Cody Allen was unable to hang on in the ninth inning. He’ll look to further improve upon a 3.92 ERA and 1.44 WHIP when he does battle against the White Sox on Friday.

T.J. House allowed four hits over 5 1/3 innings and combined with four relievers on a shutout of the Twins on Wednesday.

It was House's first appearance in 13 days, but you'd never know that from the results. In 12 starts for the Indians, he's never gone more than 6 2/3 innings, but he's pretty much always managed to keep them in games while amassing a 3.80 ERA and a 1.49 WHIP. The Indians are off again Monday, so it's unclear when House will start again. One imagines he'll get the nod at some point next week, though, whether it's against the White Sox or the Royals.

T.J. House took his third loss on Thursday, yielding four runs (three earned) in six innings to the Reds.

The Reds were able to bunch together singles against House, who allowed seven of them along with a walk and a Billy Hamilton triple while striking out five. Reds starter Homer Bailey was on point, so there wasn't much House could have done to change his fortune. The lefty now has a 4.13 ERA, a 1.51 WHIP, and a 44/17 K/BB ratio. He'll take on the Diamondbacks in a home start next week.

T.J. House pitched five innings of scoreless ball against the Rangers on Saturday.

The Indians traded out Justin Masterson and House took his spot in the rotation. Considering he was fresh off of Triple-A, this was a nice effort. Granted, it was against the dead-in-the-water Rangers, but still a nice effort. He only allowed three hits and struck out seven. This season he's pitched fifty-five innings in the majors and worked to an ERA of 4.09.

Indians recalled LHP T.J. House from Triple-A Columbus.

House takes the place of Justin Masterson in the rotation. House has posted a 4.50 ERA in 50 innings of work this season at the major league level. He is not a fantasy prospect.
Sat, Aug 2, 2014 04:52:00 PM

T.J. House will take the rotation spot left vacant by Wednesday's trade of Justin Masterson.

Masterson was shipped to the Cardinals in exchange for outfielder prospect James Ramsey. House owns a rough 4.50 ERA and 1.56 WHIP in 50 innings this season at the major league level and is not a good fantasy option.
Wed, Jul 30, 2014 04:49:00 PM

Indians optioned LHP T.J. House to Triple-A Columbus.

That means Danny Salazar will stick around, at least until Justin Masterson (knee) returns. House holds a 4.50 ERA over 50 innings this season and isn't guaranteed any more starts with the big club.
Wed, Jul 23, 2014 10:40:00 AM

T.J. House surrendered three runs in five innings Monday in a no-decision against the Twins.

House didn't lose his spot as the Indians' fifth starter despite being sent down for the All-Star break, but his job could be in jeopardy pending Danny Salazar's outing on Tuesday. It'd be best for the Indians if Salazar steps up and claims the spot.
