4/23/2018 @ NY YANKEES  
4/24/2018 @ NY YANKEES  
CLEVELAND: 2017: 102-60, first place, lost to Yankees in ALDS.
MANAGER: Terry Francona (sixth season).
ADDITIONS: 1B-DH Yonder Alonso, LF Rajai Davis, RHP Alexi Ogando.
SUBTRACTIONS: 1B Carlos Santana, OF Jay Bruce, RHP Bryan Shaw, RHP Joe Smith, OF Austin Jackson, LHP Boone Logan.
OUTLOOK: No team has felt postseason pain lately quite like the Indians. They blew a 3-1 lead and lost the 2016 World Series to the Cubs, and squandered a 2-0 advantage in last year's best-of-five Division Series against the Yankees. With arguably baseball's strongest rotation led by Kluber, the Indians are poised to possibly end a championship drought approaching its 70th anniversary. Alonso must help the offense offset the losses of Santana and Bruce. Francona won't have Shaw in the bullpen anymore after the durable reliever pitched in at least 74 games each of the past four seasons. Winning the AL Central won't suffice for the Indians, who are determined to finish the job this year.
MINNESOTA: 2017: 85-77, second place, lost to Yankees in wild-card game.
MANAGER: Paul Molitor (fourth season).
ADDITIONS: RHP Lance Lynn, RHP Jake Odorizzi, DH-1B Logan Morrison, RHP Fernando Rodney, RHP Addison Reed, LHP Zach Duke, SS-3B Erick Aybar, RHP Michael Pineda.
SUBTRACTIONS: RHP Matt Belisle, RHP Bartolo Colon, C Chris Gimenez, DH-1B Kennys Vargas, LHP Hector Santiago, LHP Glen Perkins, LHP Buddy Boshers, RHP Michael Tonkin.
OUTLOOK: After their massive 26-win turnaround last season, earning Molitor the AL Manager of the Year award and a new contract through the 2020 season, the Twins were already on the upswing with their 25-and-under core of Berrios, Buxton, Sano, Rosario and Kepler. Then, after spring training began, they traded for Odorizzi and signed Morrison and Lynn, all at market-bargain prices. They've already had some setbacks, with finger surgery for Santana expected to keep him out for most or all of April, and the gut-punch news of Polanco's suspension, plus the uncertainty that surrounds Sano. But this is a team, even with the bold offseason moves made by AL heavyweights Boston and New York, and the strength of reigning AL Central champion Cleveland, that has the talent and spunk to be right in the playoff mix. With Hughes and Tyler Duffey on track for long-relief roles and a spate of well-regarded prospects set to fill out the rotation at Triple-A Rochester, this is as much starting pitching depth as the Twins have had in years. After using 16 different starters in 2017, they needed that. Rodney, Reed and Duke were important additions to bolster the bullpen, too, after Minnesota relievers ranked 22nd in the majors with a collective 4.40 ERA.
Twins to thaw out vs. Indians in Puerto Rico

The Minnesota Twins finally found a way to beat the elements and get back to playing baseball.

All it took was a flight to Puerto Rico.

The Twins lost four games to weather last week, including the last three games of what was supposed to have been a four-game weekend series with the Chicago White Sox after blizzard dumped nearly a foot of snow on the Twin Cities.

Now, after sitting idle for four days, they'll finally get back to work Tuesday when they "host" the Cleveland Indians for a quick two-game set at Hiram Bithorn Stadium in San Juan.

"Just your average April All-Star break," quipped Twins right-hander Jake Odorizzi, who will start Tuesday for the Twins.

It will be Odorizzi's first action in six days and his fourth appearance of the season for the Twins, who acquired him in a trade with Tampa Bay early in spring training. He picked up his first victory as a Twin his last time out, getting past some early-inning command issues to go six innings while holding the Housto Astros to a run, five hits and five walks while striking out four.

"It's an ugly one," he said. "But an ugly win's better than a good loss any day of the week."

He's expecting a raucous atmosphere in San Juan, where Major League Baseball is playing games for the first time since 2010 in an effort to restore some normalcy after the island was devastated by hurricanes last season.

Odorizzi knows the games will be a big deal for the fans, but also for the Puerto Rican natives on the Twins' roster who will get a chance to play before their family, friends and countrymen.

But they're also important from a strictly baseball standpoint, too. The Twins are hoping to challenge Cleveland in the American League Central this year so it will be business as usual -- as much as possible -- when the game begins.

"These are important games," Odorizzi said. "We're playing against the team that won the division last year, and this is our first time facing them (this season). It's a big two-game series. For us to do what we want to do this year, we have to be able to beat them. This will be a good test of where we're at."

Cleveland has had its share of weather woes this season, too, and had the last two games of a weekend series against the Toronto Blue Jays washed out by rain. Right-hander Corey Kluber was originally slated to start Saturday and will be on eight days' rest when he faces the Twins on Tuesday.

Kluber, 8-5 with a 3.31 ERA in 19 career starts against the Twins, has gotten off to a quick start this season. Through three starts, he's 1-1 with a 1.20 ERA and has struck out 27 while walking just four in 23 innings.

"It's exciting," Cleveland manager Terry Francona said of Kluber's work so far. "We've all seen that when he gets on a roll, he can maintain it for, sometimes, shoot, as long as you can play. And that's a really good feeling, because he'll be in here tomorrow working his tail off, doing his routine. That's why I think he's able to be so consistent."

Cleveland won the season series over Minnesota a year ago, taking 12 of the 19 meetings between the teams and cruised to the AL Central title with a 17-game cushion over the second-place Twins.
