Indians manager Terry Francona said Tuesday that T.J. House will remain the team's No. 5 starter for the time being.
"Yes, I told you that the other day," Francona said. "If he wasn't, he wouldn't be here. We're not going to keep a guy if he isn't pitching. We'd go get a reliever." House was just supposed to make a spot start Sunday with Justin Masterson (knee) banged up, but he pitched well and the Tribe will evidently keep him around rather than bring back Zach McAllister. The left holds a 4.54 ERA and 1.51 ERA this season. Jul 2 - 10:08 AM

T.J. House pitched well in a losing effort against the Mariners on Sunday, allowing a pair of runs on seven hits over his six strong frames.

House punched out five on the afternoon while issuing just one free pass. All of the damage against him came on one pitch, a two-run blast off the bat of Robinson Cano in the sixth inning. He'll look to improve upon a 4.54 ERA and 1.51 ERA when he does battle against the Royals on Saturday.

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

He'll make a spot start on Sunday versus the Mariners. Justin Masterson (knee) has been cleared to start Tuesday, so House will be sent back down after Sunday's outing. He's put up a 4.88 ERA and 1.55 WHIP in 27 2/3 innings this season for the Tribe.
Jun 29 - 12:22 PM

T.J. House will start for the Indians against the Mariners on Sunday.

The move will be made to give Justin Masterson an extra couple of days to rest, as he aims to make his next start on Tuesday. In the event that Masterson can't go, Zach McAllister would get the call in his place on Tuesday.
Jun 27 - 8:45 PM

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

House has posted a rough 4.88 ERA and 1.55 WHIP in 27 2/3 innings this season for the Tribe. The 24-year-old left-hander may get another look later this summer.
Jun 16 - 3:13 PM

T.J. House was yanked after allowing six runs -- five earned -- in 3 1/3 innings against the Rangers on Monday.

House was given a huge early lead by the offense, but he couldn't do a whole lot with it. He'll probably get sent back to Triple-A now, with Zach McAllister set to come off the DL this weekend and reclaim his rotation spot.
Jun 10 - 12:45 AM

T.J. House got the no-decision, allowing two runs in 5 2/3 innings in Tuesday's win over the Red Sox.

House made his third start for the Indians on the season, allowing six hits and walking two while striking out four. The 24-year-old has a 3.79 ERA in 19 innings overall, but may not stick in the rotation for much longer. If he takes his next scheduled turn in the rotation, it will be on the road against the Rangers.
Jun 3 - 10:53 PM

T.J. House held the White Sox to one run over 6 1/3 innings and struck out eight in a no-decision Wednesday.

House was roughed up by the Orioles in his first start, but this one went a whole lot better. His stint in the rotation could come to an end soon, but he'd function well in the bullpen if the Indians make room for him there.
May 28 - 11:13 PM

T.J. House was roughed up in Friday's loss to the Orioles, allowing five runs on 11 hits over six innings.

House walked a pair and struck out one in the ballgame. It was a tough assignment for his first major league start, and the Orioles made plenty of solid contact against him including a pair of home runs. It's likely that he'll head back to the bullpen where he'll function in a long relief role.
May 23 - 11:37 PM

T.J. House is expected to start Friday against the Orioles.

That's assuming he's not needed in relief Thursday night. House had a 2.40 ERA and 34/11 K/BB ratio in 41 1/3 innings across seven starts in the minors this year, but that's a tough assignment for his first major league start.
May 22 - 4:38 PM

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

House tossed one scoreless inning of relief in a short stay with the Tribe earlier this season. The left-hander has posted excellent numbers this year at Triple-A and could be up for an extended stint this time around.
May 22 - 3:18 PM

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

House joined the club on Saturday and tossed a scoreless inning in his lone appearance. He'll return to a 2.40 ERA and 34/11 K/BB ratio over 41 1/3 innings in the minors.
May 20 - 3:14 PM

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

House provides a much-needed fresh arm to the Indians bullpen. The 24-year-old southpaw owns a 2.40 ERA, 1.11 WHIP and 34/11 K/BB ratio over seven starts (41 1/3 innings) at Columbus. He'll be utilized in long relief.
May 17 - 3:04 PM

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

House was only up in the majors for a handful of days. He should be given another shot later this summer.

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

House was serving as a starter at the Triple-A level but is expected to pitch out of the bullpen in Cleveland. The 23-year-old left-hander will carry no fantasy value.
