KEY GAME INFORMATION
CLEVELAND: HITTING: SS ASDRUBAL CABRERA's reinvented swing, modeled after Ben Zobrist, likely led to his power surge. OF GRADY SIZEMORE is back on a one-year deal, so he has plenty of financial incentive to stay healthy. But he will begin the season on the DL after back surgery. OF SHELLEY DUNCAN is expected to get more playing time in replacing Sizemore, but speedy OF EZEQUIEL CARRERA is also waiting for his shot. Injuries and off-the-field issues spoiled OF SHIN SOO-CHOO's 2011, but there's a good chance he bounces back . . . OF MICHAEL BRANTLEY does everything well enough to get a regular gig in center. C CARLOS SANTANA is developing into a middle-of-the-order run producer. DH TRAVIS HAFNER can't be trusted to stay healthy or to produce power numbers. After another down year, 1B MATT LaPORTA will have to sit and watch CASEY KOTCHMAN start at first more often than not. 3B LONNIE CHISENHALL will get his chance to play every day, but dwindling production the past two years is a concern. 2B JASON KIPNIS will get first crack at second base. He's got nice pop for a middle infielder.
STARTING PITCHING: JUSTIN MASTERSON's strikeout rate continues to decline, and he still gets hit hard by lefties. Still, his strong groundball rate guarantees he's a solid middle-of-the-rotation arm at worst. His velocity dropped last year, and there's no telling if UBALDO JIMENEZ will ever regain his early 2010 form. He's the definition of high-risk, high-reward. DEREK LOWE was a decent middle-of-the-rotation arm in the National League, but now he must adjust to facing superior A.L. lineups . . . Healthy again, JOSH TOMLIN will remain in the rotation. He's hittable, throwing strikes and relying on his defense. Former Twins hurler KEVIN SLOWEY rounds out the staff. Although he posted a 6.67 ERA last year, Slowey has exhibited pinpoint control in his career with just 84 walks in 532.2 innings, tallying a .470 K-to-BB ratio. JEANMAR GOMEZ is a decent minor league arm, but his ceiling is low (long term and in the immediate future). CARLOS CARRASCO may not pitch in the bigs this year after Tommy John surgery.
RELIEF PITCHING: CHRIS PEREZ is entrenched as the closer, but he was a bit of a disappointment last season. His velocity dropped slightly, and his strikeout rate fell off a cliff. If Perez gets hurt, VINNIE PESTANO is next in line for saves. He may be undersized, but his stuff is overpowering. TONY SIPP proved he can get out righties too, but his value is as a lefty-on-lefty guy. Ditto for sidearmer JOE SMITH, who is deadly on righties. But it would be a surprise if he shut down lefties for a second straight year. RAFAEL PEREZ has been hampered by shoulder soreness in Spring Training, but the lefty should once again be serviceable in the late innings this year.
BALTIMORE: HITTING: The leadoff spot is 2B BRIAN ROBERTS' if he can stay on the field. His recent injury history is very troubling, though his talent makes him a risk worth taking. 2B ROBERT ANDINO and 2B RYAN ADAMS would compete for time if Roberts is out. The O's best hitter last year was arguably SS J.J. HARDY. He was healthy for the first time in years and flexed his legit 30-HR power. If Roberts and Hardy stay healthy, OF NICK MARKAKIS will likely hit third and see an increase in RBI chances. OF ADAM JONES seems to have the highest ceiling of any Baltimore hitter. 3B MARK REYNOLDS will probably end up at 1B. His horrendous average cancels out some of his 40-HR potential. OF NOLAN REIMOLD revived his MLB career with an impressive end of the season. He's got a shot to start in left. 1B CHRIS DAVIS is a candidate to start at first, third or DH as sort of a Junior Mark Reynolds. C MATT WIETERS is already one of the best two-way backstops in baseball at age 25.

STARTING PITCHING: WEI-YIN CHEN pitched well enough in Japan (2.48 ERA, 1.06 WHIP in past four seasons) to become the de-facto ace of this horrible pitching staff. JAKE ARRIETA is a mediocre talent, but is good enough to secure a spot as a Baltimore starter. JASON HAMMEL hopes the switch from Coors Field will help lower his career ERA of 4.99. The highest-risk, highest-potential O's pitcher may be BRIAN MATUSZ. His 2011 line is frightening (10.69 ERA, 2.11 WHIP), but he has the raw skills and pitch repertoire to turn it around. TOMMY HUNTER came over from Texas midseason and should round out the rotation.
RELIEF PITCHING: There was talk of JIM JOHNSON being converted into a starter, but he'll open the season as the team's closer. Johnson established himself as the O's best option to close after going 7-for-7 in that role last September. KEVIN GREGG would step in as the ninth-inning man if Johnson falters. He was unstable in that role last year. Gregg is a trade candidate this midseason, in which case he'd probably end up a set-up man elsewhere. Flame-throwing MATT LINDSTROM is a darkhorse for saves. He saved 23 games for Houston in 2010 before being used as a set-up man in Colorado last year. TSUYOSHI WADA brings his finesse game from Japan. He's a heady hurler who hides the ball well, but he's in for a rude awakening in the A.L. East. BRAD BERGESEN and CHRIS JAKUBAUSKAS are long relievers who may get bumped into the rotation if the young Baltimore SPs struggle again.

*Indians-Orioles Preview* =========================

By JEFF MEZYDLO STATS Senior Writer

Cleveland (38-36) at Baltimore (42-34), 7:05 p.m. EDT

As Baltimore's Chris Tillman tries to continue his undefeated run, Cleveland's Justin Masterson hopes his recent success at home finally carries over to the road.

While Tillman looks to win a career-high fifth straight start and help the Orioles avoid a fifth consecutive loss, Masterson hopes to end his personal four-game road skid for the Indians on Tuesday night.

Tillman (8-2, 3.71 ERA) is 5-0 in his last six starts and has won the last four, recording a 2.25 ERA. The least impressive outing of that stretch came Wednesday, when he allowed three runs, seven hits and three walks in five innings of a 13-3 win at Detroit.

"Results-wise, at the end of the day, a win is a win," Tillman told the Orioles' official website. "I should have been better."

The right-hander also won four consecutive starts last season from July 21-Aug. 6. That run began the last time he faced Cleveland, allowing a run in 6 2-3 innings of a 3-1 win. He's 1-1 with a 5.27 ERA in three starts against the Indians (39-36).

Masterson (9-5, 3.48), meanwhile, has a 2.30 ERA while winning four straight starts against Baltimore (42-35).

He's been similarly effective at home, where he's gone 5-0 with a 1.49 ERA in his last six outings. It's been a different story for Masterson on the road, dropping four in a row while posting an 8.06 ERA.

The right-hander was at home for his last two outings, giving up three runs and striking out 18 in 13 1-3 innings. He got his first victory in four starts Wednesday with 6 1-3 solid innings in a 6-3 win over Kansas City.

"On the day he pitches, we feel pretty good," manager Terry Francona said. "He's earned that, for us to feel that way. We always know about his willingness to compete. It's fun to watch."

Francona's club won Monday's series opener 5-2 for its ninth victory in 12 games since a season-high eight-game slide.

Michael Brantley went 2 for 4 with a homer and four RBIs. A lifetime .400 hitter at Camden Yards, Brantley is batting .353 with three homers and seven RBIs in his last five games overall. His two-run homer Monday broke open a one-run game in the eighth inning.

"I was able to get a good swing on it," he said. "I just stayed through it the best I could. At the time, it was a big swing."

Teammate Jason Kipnis is hitting .351 while reaching base in 26 straight contests.

Orioles slugger Chris Davis is 2 for 9 with two doubles against Masterson, and he's 1 for 14 with six strikeouts in his last four games versus Cleveland.

Adam Jones had two hits Monday for Baltimore, which lost for the fourth time in 15 home games. He's 8 for 17 in his last four against the Indians at Camden Yards.
