Trevor Bauer will start Tuesday's game against the Royals.

Food poisoning forced him to miss Saturday's start. Bauer has looked sharp all year, limiting opponents to a .125 batting average. The 24-year-old has collected at least seven strikeouts in each of his three starts.

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.

Trevor Bauer was scratched from his scheduled start on Saturday due to illness.

T.J. House, who had been scheduled to go Sunday, will start in his place against the Tigers. Bauer could work on Sunday if he's feeling better.

Nick Swisher (knees) went 3-for-5 with two runs scored and an RBI in his first rehab game with Triple-A Columbus on Friday.

Swisher will play another on Saturday before the Indians determine when he'll be able to return to the active roster. He's expected to serve as the Indians everyday right fielder upon his return.

Brandon Moss blasted a pair of homers and drove home seven runs on Friday, powering the Indians in a 13-1 thrashing of the Tigers in Detroit on Friday.

Moss got the scoring started with a two-run double off Shane Greene in the first inning. He then clubbed a three-run shot off Alex Wilson in the fifth and for good measure added a two-run bomb off Al Albuquerque in the ninth. With the three-hit attack, he's now hitting .214/.327/.524 with three long balls and nine RBI on the season.
Apr 24 - 10:26 PM

Danny Salazar delivered another impressive outing in Friday's victory over the Tigers, racking up 11 strikeouts over seven innings of one-run ball.

Salazar became the first Tribe hurler since 1970 to record ten or more strikeouts in each of his first two April starts. He allowed just six hits and three walks on the night, with the only blemish against him on a solo home run off the bat of Nick Castellanos. He'll look to continue his dominance on Wednesday against the Royals.

Nick Swisher (knees) will be re-evaluated by the Indians on Monday after playing two rehab games with Triple-A Columbus over the weekend.

Assuming he doesn't have a setback, he should be activated from the disabled list at that point. Swisher will play right field once back with the Tribe, as he believes that will put less stress on his surgically-repaired knees.
Apr 24 - 5:31 PM

Indians prospect 3B Giovanny Urshela went 2-for-5 with a solo home run on Thursday in his season debut for Triple-A Columbus.

Known more for his defense than bat, Urshela, 23, took a big step forward offensively in 2014, batting .280/.334/.491 with a career-high 36 doubles and 18 home runs in 128 games between Double-A Akron and Triple-A Columbus. The Colombia native’s future depends on the health and productivity of Lonnie Chisenhall, though Urshela could potentially force the organization’s hand with a red-hot start in Triple-A.
Apr 24 - 2:29 PM

Indians prospect SS Francisco Lindor enjoyed his best game of the season Thursday, going 2-for-5 with a pair of doubles, three RBI and a stolen base for Triple-A Columbus.

Lindor, 21, has gotten off to a rough start back in the International League, batting just .212/.293/.365 through 14 games, but he’s begun to heat up as of late with an .845 OPS and four extra-base hits in the last six games. The Indians don’t appear to be in a hurry to promote the defensively gifted Lindor, though it’d be surprising if he weren’t the Tribe’s starting shortstop by the end of June.
Apr 24 - 2:28 PM

Indians activated INF/OF Zach Walters from the 15-day disabled list; optioned him to Triple-A Columbus.

Walters has played a couple rehab games after recovering from a right oblique, but the Indians don't have a need for him at the moment on the big league roster. He should still spend plenty of time in the majors this season.
Apr 24 - 1:24 PM

Corey Kluber was hammered for six earned runs over six innings Wednesday in a loss to the White Sox.

It was an uncharacteristically awful start from Kluber, who dominated the Pale Hose last season en route to his first Cy Young Award. He issued just one walk and struck out six, but the White Sox pounded him for 13 hits -- including four doubles and a Jose Abreu home run. The 29-year-old right-hander is a good bet to get back on track next time out against the Royals.
Apr 22 - 5:16 PM

Indians manager Terry Francona revealed that Carlos Carrasco was pulled from Tuesday's start after just 60 pitches because he was "tight."

Tito didn't specify which part of the body was tight, but he also didn't sound concerned at all about the right-hander. "It's a little ambiguous," Francona said. "I might have overreacted." Carrasco should be fine for his next scheduled start, but check back on his status later in the week just to make sure.
Apr 22 - 12:58 PM

Carlos Carrasco struck out eight while allowing one run over five innings in the Indians' 6-2 win over the White Sox Tuesday.

Carrasco gave up just four hits without walking a batter on the evening. The lone damage against him was a first inning solo homer by Jose Abreu. With some lingering concerns about his health -- the start was his first since getting hit in the jaw by a comebacker last week -- the Indians limited him to 60 pitches, but he was dominant enough that he could have gone deeper. He should go deeper his next time out, which will come Monday against the Royals.
Apr 21 - 11:49 PM

David Murphy hit his first home run of the year in a win over the White Sox on Tuesday.

Serving as the designated hitter, Murphy hit a Hector Noesi pitch out to right field for his first blast of the season. It was his only hit in two at-bats, and Murphy has just four hits through his first 10 games. The homer also accounted for his lone RBI thus far.
Apr 21 - 11:45 PM

Carlos Santana hit his third home run of the season in Tuesday's win over the White Sox.

Santana took White Sox starter Hector Noesi deep to lead off the second inning. He later walked and stole a base, his second steal of the year. Santana is hitting just .229 to start the year, but he's a streaky hitter who can raise that average quickly with a few good games.
