Joe Mauer and Ryan Doumit are back in the Minnesota lineup for the second consecutive game in the Twins' series opener against Cleveland Tuesday night. Mauer and Doumit, who both missed most of last week with nagging injuries, returned on Sunday against the White Sox.
The Twinkies can climb out of the A.L. Central basement with a series win over the Indians. Right-hander P.J. Walters (2-4, 6.70) starts for Minnesota Tuesday night. Ron Gardenhire's restocked lineup faces Cleveland southpaw David Huff (1-0, 0.00), who will make his first start in almost a year.
