  • First win of '15 elusive but Kluber locked in

    Say this for Corey Kluber: he has done his part. Three starts into his Cy Young encore, the ace of the Indians' staff has looked every bit as overpowering and dominant as he did throughout last summer's breakout showing. He just has no wins to show for it.

  • Tribe calls on Salazar for matchup with Twins

    After one strong start for Triple-A Columbus, Danny Salazar will be recalled by Cleveland to start the second game of this three-game series against the Twins. He will square off against Twins right-hander Phil Hughes, who won 16 games last season but is still searching for his first victory of 2015.

  • Tribe unravels late after Kluber's stellar start

    Trevor Plouffe connected on a walk-off solo homer in the 11th inning to give the Twins a 3-2 win over the Indians on Friday night at Target Field. Plouffe's blast also gave the Twins their third straight win. Indians ace Corey Kluber's effort unraveled in the sixth inning after a perfect start to his night.

  • Brantley notches 2 hits in return from back stiffness

    The Indians had a familiar face back in the heart of their batting order on Friday night. After missing six of Cleveland's first eight games with stiffness in his lower back, All-Star left fielder Michael Brantley returned to the lineup for the opener of a three-game road series against the Twins.

  • Salazar getting chance to reclaim rotation spot

    Cleveland will officially recall Danny Salazar prior to Saturday's 2:10 p.m. ET game against the Twins, but the right-hander was already on hand at Target Field on Friday. The Indians will have to make a subsequent roster move in order to add Salazar, who will assume the rotation spot previously filled by right-hander Zach McAllister.

  • Twins power their way past Royals 8-5 for series win (The Associated Press)

    The Minnesota Twins were a little frustrated after their first seven games, having played about as poorly as possible. Kennys Vargas and Kurt Suzuki each hit a two-run homer Thursday, powering the Twins past the Kansas City Royals 8-5 for their first series win this season. ''We have some guys that can hit the ball over the fence,'' manager Paul Molitor said. ''We all know Target Field can be a challenge in that regard compared to some of the other parks, but we want to have a mixture: guys that hit for average, guys that can run the bases and we always welcome hitting them over the fence.'' Lorenzo Cain put the Royals in front with his two-run shot in the first inning, but starter Jason Vargas (1-1) was shelled.
