Indians Vs. Twins Lineups: Changes Throughout Lineup For Cleveland In Game Two

The Cleveland Indians were absolutely dominated in they last outing, a 11-0 shutout at the hands of the Minnesota Twins in game one of a three-game set. They've now lost two of their last three and are falling behind in the AL Central race. The Detroit Tigers and Chicago White Sox are both ahead of them, and they're 4.5 games back of the lead. In short, the entire pitching staff is looking to rebound on Saturday after Friday's fiasco, and they'll be lead by Justin Masterson.

His counter will be Samuel Deduno, who is 1-0 on the season with a 3.94 earned run average. As far as lineups go, there's quite a few changes in the lineup. Asdrubal Cabrera, Lou Marson, Shelley Duncan and Jose Lopez are out, and will be replaced by Johnny Damon, Casey Kotchman, Jack Hannahan and Brent Lillibridge, all at the back of the lineup. For the Twins, Alexi Casilla and Danny Valencia replace Trevor Plouffe and Jamey Carroll.
