Zach McAllister yielded two runs in six innings Monday in a no-decision against the Astros.

McAllister was making his first major league start since July 31; his previous two appearances this month came out of the pen. He struck out six and walked none in a solid effort, but he still fell to 3-7.

Ryan Raburn is expected to undergo an MRI on his ailing left knee.

Raburn left Saturday's game with a hyperextended knee and has yet to experience any improvement. More won't be known about his status until after the exam. "He's still pretty tender, pretty sore," Indians manager Terry Francona said. "We're gonna have [head trainer James Quinlan] talk to [assistant trainer Jeff Desjardins] and see, see if we should get him back to Cleveland. We probably need to get him checked."

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."

Michael Brantley went 2-for-4 with a homer and two RBI in Saturday's loss to the Tigers.

Brantley opened the game's scoring with first-inning two-run shot off Tigers starter Kyle Lobstein and then added a single and a stolen base in the eighth. He's batting .319/.378/.498 with 19 home runs, 93 RBI, and 20 stolen bases in what has been a massive breakout campaign.

Danny Salazar gave up three earned runs in 5 2/3 innings Saturday in a no-decision at Detroit.

Salazar struck out seven and walked just one, but the Indians tallied two runs in the bottom of the third inning and then Victor Martinez tagged Salazar for a solo homer in the fourth. He's struggled now in back-to-back outings after a string of dominant starts. The young righty will try to get on track next week in Houston.

Ryan Raburn left Saturday's game versus the Tigers with a hyperextended left knee.

Raburn exited in the fourth inning. He walked in his only plate appearance. Tyler Holt replaced him in right field.

Ryan Raburn blasted his fourth home run of the season on Friday as the Indians dropped the opener of their three-game weekend series to the Tigers.

Raburn victimized his former mates with a solo shot in the second inning to open the game's scoring. He also singled in the contest, finishing the night 2-for-3 and raising his season slash to a disappointing .200/.246/.297.
Sep 12 - 11:17 PM

Lonnie Chisenhall went 2-for-4 and drove home a run in Friday's loss to the Tigers.

Chisenhall doubled home Jason Giambi in the ninth inning with the game well out of reach already. He has had an up-and-down type of season, but on the whole his .291/.353/.456 slash line with 13 homers and 58 RBI looks very strong in 127 games.
Sep 12 - 11:15 PM

Carlos Carrasco gave up four runs on seven hits over 6 1/3 innings in a losing effort against the Tigers on Friday.

Carrasco fanned five and walked two on the evening. The big blow against him was a two-run homer by J.D. Martinez in the fourth inning. He has been pitching very well since his return to the rotation, and now owns a 2.86 ERA, 1.04 WHIP and 109/24 K/BB ratio on the season. He'll look to keep things rolling next week when he takes on the Astros in Houston on Wednesday.
Sep 12 - 11:12 PM

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.
Sep 11 - 6:11 PM

Carlos Santana homered in both games of Thursday's doubleheader against the Twins.

Santana also singled in game two to finish the day 3-for-8. He's been anything but consistent this year, but he's back excelling in September after a down August, with a .308 average, five homers and a 5/7 K/BB ratio in 10 games this month.
Sep 11 - 6:05 PM

Corey Kluber fell just a bit short of his second straight complete game Thursday, allowing two runs in 8 1/3 innings against the Twins.

Kluber allowed one run and threw 96 pitches through eight before convincing manager Terry Francona he was ready to go back out for the ninth. He gave up hits to three of the four batters he faced then, giving the Twins a second run, but reliever Kyle Crockett was able to strand both runners he left on base after coming out. Kluber improved to 15-9 with a 2.45 ERA. He'll miss the Tigers series and get the Astros next time out.
Sep 11 - 2:59 PM

Yan Gomes homered, doubled and knocked in three runs Thursday against the Twins.

The homer was his first in 12 games since he returned from a concussion. Gomes has 18 homers and 62 RBI for the year, making him one of the game's best offensive catchers. He's no slouch behind the dish, either.
Sep 11 - 2:53 PM

Mike Aviles (concussion) is available on Thursday.

Aviles has been on the shelf since the first day of September following a diving catch that left him dizzy and nauseous. He was cleared by Indians team doctors Wednesday morning and passed through MLB's concussion protocol. The 33-year-old utilityman is batting just .245/.270/.334 in 97 games this season.
Sep 11 - 10:52 AM

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.
