5/31/2018 @ MINNESOTA  
6/1/2018 @ MINNESOTA  
HOUSTON: 2017: 101-61, first place, won World Series.
MANAGER: A.J. Hinch (fourth season).
ADDITIONS: RHP Gerrit Cole, RHP Joe Smith, RHP Hector Rondon.
SUBTRACTIONS: DH Carlos Beltran, RHP Luke Gregerson, RHP Joe Musgrove, RHP Mike Fiers, RHP Michael Feliz, INF Colin Moran.
OUTLOOK: With almost everyone back from last year's championship team, the Astros fully expect to contend for another title. They have a right to be confident with Altuve leading a potent lineup that includes Springer, the World Series MVP, and Correa, a young All-Star shortstop coming off his best season. Their rotation is one of the best in baseball, with Cy Young Award winners Keuchel and Verlander leading the group and new acquisition Cole and young star McCullers following that 1-2 punch. Barring debilitating injuries, the Astros should win the AL West and have an excellent chance to repeat as World Series champs.
CLEVELAND: 2017: 102-60, first place, lost to Yankees in ALDS.
MANAGER: Terry Francona (sixth season).
ADDITIONS: 1B-DH Yonder Alonso, LF Rajai Davis, RHP Alexi Ogando.
SUBTRACTIONS: 1B Carlos Santana, OF Jay Bruce, RHP Bryan Shaw, RHP Joe Smith, OF Austin Jackson, LHP Boone Logan.
OUTLOOK: No team has felt postseason pain lately quite like the Indians. They blew a 3-1 lead and lost the 2016 World Series to the Cubs, and squandered a 2-0 advantage in last year's best-of-five Division Series against the Yankees. With arguably baseball's strongest rotation led by Kluber, the Indians are poised to possibly end a championship drought approaching its 70th anniversary. Alonso must help the offense offset the losses of Santana and Bruce. Francona won't have Shaw in the bullpen anymore after the durable reliever pitched in at least 74 games each of the past four seasons. Winning the AL Central won't suffice for the Indians, who are determined to finish the job this year.
Indians feel better about bullpen against Astros

CLEVELAND -- Cleveland Indians manager Terry Francona has his bullpen security blanket back. That's a good thing for Francona and a good thing for the Indians' beleaguered bullpen.

On Friday night, the Indians, with a healthy Andrew Miller back in their bullpen, host the Houston Astros in the second game of a four-game series.

Cleveland's bullpen has the fewest wins (3-11) and highest ERA (5.51) in the American League, but a big reason for that was the two weeks ace Miller spent on the disabled list and the three bumpy appearances he had after coming off the DL.

Miller was on the disabled list from April 26 to May 10 with a strained left hamstring. In his first three appearances after being activated, Miller pitched 1 2/3 innings, giving up four runs and three hits (two doubles and a home run) while walking five.

But in Miller's last two appearances on Tuesday and Wednesday in Indians wins over the Chicago Cubs, he pitched two scoreless innings with two hits, two strikeouts and no walks.

"That was just what we needed," Francona said. "Now that he's pitched in a couple games (after coming off the DL), you'll hopefully see him be the guy that we can really rely on."

Miller didn't get a chance to perform Thursday night in the first game of the series as the Astros routed the Indians 8-2, scoring five runs in the fifth inning, including three on a home run given up by Indians reliever Neil Ramirez.

Miller and closer Cody Allen have been the only dependable relievers in the Cleveland bullpen, which makes shutting down the Astros' lineup problematic.

"Guys will emerge. We believe that," Francona said of the struggles by his other relievers. "We'll try to keep putting guys in a position to succeed."

Miller and Allen aside, slumping bullpen in a series against the defending World Series champions is not how Francona would have drawn it up.

"These guys are really good," Francona said of the Astros. "That doesn't mean we're going to back down, but we do respect how good they are.

"Last year, even before they won the World Series, the way they played the game really stood out. They're fun to play. Not because you think you're going to push them around, but because they're so good it's just fun to play them."

Friday's pitching matchup will feature two starters who between them have won three of the last four American League Cy Young Awards. Cleveland's Corey Kluber won it in 2014 and 2017, and Houston's Dallas Keuchel won it in 2015.

Kluber (7-2, 2.36 ERA) is off to another strong start this year. Keuchel (3-6, 3.43) has been a little more inconsistent.

Friday's Kluber-Keuchel duel will be an encore from a week ago. In their last starts, Kluber and Keuchel faced each other on May 19 in Houston. Kluber and the Indians won 5-4.

In that game, Kluber pitched seven innings, giving up two runs and six hits with 10 strikeouts and no walks. Keuchel gave up four runs and six hits in five innings with three strikeouts and two walks.

In nine career appearances against the Astros, Kluber is 6-3 with a 3.17 ERA. In seven career appearances against the Indians, Keuchel is 4-1 with a 2.76 ERA.
