Francona said that the righty has been dealing with back issues since the team's series in Arizona at the beginning of April, but that common thought was that the training staff and Kluber would be able to manage it. "Young guys, historically, you don't know what you're going to get, but I think last year's experience and performances out of those guys down the stretch gave us hope, and they've proven that hope to be true this season".

The Detroit Tigers fell to the Cleveland Indians 3-2 last night at Comerica Park.

Daniel Norris is scheduled to start the series finale against the A's after a strong outing Monday against the Indians. His durability was crucial past year, when he helped the Indians win the American League pennant despite injuries that decimated the rest of the starting rotation.

The SNP is hoping to topple Labour from its Glasgow City Council stronghold where it has held power for more than three decades. He told the BBC News Channel: "The SNP are running very strong in Aberdeen, we've got high hopes of taking control of the city.


The under is 15-5-3 in Cleveland last 23 road games and Cleveland are 25-9 in their last 34 Thursday games while Cleveland are 15-6 in Salazar's last 21 starts. Fulmer has been the Tigers' best pitcher through five starts, striking out 26 batters in 31 innings and allowing just 22 hits.

Last night's victory was aided by a rough night from Corey Kluber, who allowed five runs before being pulled after the third inning for what was described as lower back discomfort.

"Hopefully, it's sooner rather than later", Francona said. Clevinger is 3-1 with a 1.50 ERA with Columbus.
