Cleveland southpaw David Huff will make his first start of 2012 against the Minnesota Twins Tuesday night at Jacobs Field. Huff (1-0, 0.00) retired 10 straight Twins batters and struck out four in 3 1/3 innings on Sept. 7, helping the Tribe to a 7-6 win.
Minnesota starter P.J. Walters (2-4, 6.70) allowed six runs in four innings to the Royals last Wednesday. It was the right-hander's third start since coming back from injury after almost three months; Walters has lost both decisions and posted a 12.00 ERA since returning. The Twins will have Joe Mauer and Ryan Doumit in the lineup for the second straight game, after the two catchers were out most of last week with injuries.
