The Cleveland Indians and Minnesota Twins won't be battling for playoff position when they begin their three-game series on Tuesday, but that doesn't mean there won't be anything on the line.

Minnesota enters the series with the fourth-worst record in Major League Baseball, while the Indians begin with the fifth worst record, one game ahead of the Twins. The series could go a long way to determining position in the 2013 MLB Draft.

David Huff will make his first start of the season for the Indians on Tuesday. Huff has started 48 games over the last three seasons for the Indians, but will make just his third Major League appearance of 2012. P.J. Walters will start for Minnesota as the Twins look to snap a three-game losing streak.

Minnesota leads the season series 10-5.
