Indians Vs. Twins Lineups: Chris Parmelee Scratched; Matt Carson In

The Minnesota Twins have scratched outfielder Chris Parmelee from the lineup for Monday night's series finale against the Minnesota Twins with right groin soreness, according to Rhett Bollinger. Matt Carson will start in Parmelee's place. Parmelee is just day-to-day at this point.

The Twins, behind Samuel Deduno, are looking for the series victory over the Indians, who have lost two straight entering the finale. Deduno has been very effective for Minnesota this season, posting a 5-4 record with a 3.66 ERA. He has allowed three earned runs or less in 9 of 11 starts in 2012.
