Indians activated LHP T.J. House from the 15-day disabled list; optioned him to Triple-A Columbus.

This means that Shaun Marcum will keep the No. 5 spot in the starting rotation for now. House tossed eight scoreless innings with a 9/1 K/BB ratio over two minor league rehab starts, but the Indians apparently want to see more sustained success before giving him another shot.

T.J. House (shoulder) is scheduled to begin a rehab assignment Friday with Low-A Lake County.

House looked good in a bullpen session Wednesday and is now ready for the next step in his rehabilitation from left shoulder inflammation. The left-hander was pitching terribly before he landed on the disabled list and could be asked to make several rehab starts.

T.J. House (shoulder) threw a side session Wednesday.

Assuming he bounces back OK, Indians manager Terry Francona said the next step could be a three-inning rehab start. House landed on the DL at the end of April with left shoulder inflammation and will have to prove his health and effectiveness to get back his rotation spot.
May 12 - 3:34 PM

T.J. House (shoulder) is slated to play long-toss on Sunday.

House was placed on the disabled list just over a week ago with left shoulder inflammation, but he's already feeling much better. He'll be brought along slowly and isn't guaranteed a spot in the rotation once deemed healthy.
May 10 - 10:55 AM

Indians placed LHP T.J. House on the 15-day disabled list with left shoulder inflammation.

The ailment helps explain House's drop in velocity and results in the early going this season. It's not clear at this point how long he'll be sidelined, but it appears he at least doesn't have any structural issues with the shoulder. Zach McAllister, Bruce Chen and Shaun Marcum are options to take his spot in the rotation.
May 1 - 2:36 PM

T.J. House dropped to 0-4 after giving up five runs in three-plus innings Thursday against the Blue Jays.

House got nine groundouts from 11 hitters over the first three innings, only to give up a walk, two singles and two doubles to start the fourth. He was then yanked and replaced by Ryan Webb. Maybe with a lucky break in the fourth, this one could have gone a lot differently. However, since House is sporting a 13.15 ERA, he has to be on the verge of losing his rotation spot, probably to either Bruce Chen or Zach McAllister.
Apr 30 - 10:20 PM

T.J. House struggled in his spot start against the Tigers on Saturday, surrendering three runs on four hits over his three innings of work.

House struck out three and walked four on the afternoon. He had his start pushed up a day at the last minute when Trevor Bauer was unable to pitch due to illness on Saturday. After an impressive 2014 season, House has really struggled early in the 2015 campaign, registering a 12.60 ERA and 2.60 WHIP across his first 10 innings. He'll look to turn things around on Thursday against the Blue Jays provided he remains in the Tribe's rotation.
Apr 25 - 4:09 PM

T.J. House allowed five runs on seven hits in 5 2/3 innings against the Twins on Sunday.

House walked two and struck out two in the outing. The Twins applied water torture to him in the second inning, scoring runs on a sacrifice fly, an RBI single and a run-scoring grounder. Shane Robinson added an RBI single in the fourth inning and the final run on House's line came via a Torii Hunter homer after the pitcher had left the game. House's 14.14 ERA theoretically has nowhere to go but down from here, assuming Danny Salazar does not replace him in the rotation. Should House make his next start, it will come against the Tigers.
Apr 19 - 5:11 PM

T.J. House was lit up for six earned runs in just 1 1/3 innings Sunday as the Indians fell to the Tigers.

House had nothing from the jump, and the dangerous Detroit offense pounced all over him. The 25-year-old left-hander yielded six hits and walked three while recording only four outs. He'll try to get on track in his next start on the road against the Twins. Danny Salazar is knocking on the door from Triple-A.
Apr 12 - 4:34 PM

T.J. House struggled in Sunday's Cactus League loss to the White Sox, allowing four runs on six hits over six frames.

The 25-year-old southpaw punched out four and walked two on the afternoon. Recently named as the fifth starter in the Tribe's Opening Day rotation, it probably wasn't the type of outing that House had in mind to cement his spot. House now sports a 5.70 ERA and 19/5 K/BB ratio over 23 2/3 innings on the spring.
Mar 29 - 8:44 PM

T.J. House has been named the Indians' No. 5 starter.

Zach McAllister has captured the fourth spot in news that doesn't surprise anyone following Danny Salazar's demotion. House holds a 5.60 ERA this spring but also a 15/3 K/BB ratio across 17 2/3 innings. The southpaw posted a 3.35 ERA and 80/22 K/BB ratio over 102 frames for the Tribe last season and makes for a great late-round starter flier in fantasy leagues.
Mar 29 - 12:52 PM

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.
