Indians open season against upstart Twins

The Cleveland Indians begin their quest for a fourth consecutive American League Central Division championship against the team that is expected to be their toughest challenger, the Minnesota Twins, on Thursday afternoon at Target Field in Minneapolis.

Both teams will have a much different look since last fall when the Indians finished 91-71 and 13 games in front of the second-place Twins (78-84). In Minnesota's case, it was planned. Not so much for the injury-plagued Indians.

Cleveland, which lost 10 of its 11 free agents including outfielder Michael Brantley (Astros) and relievers Cody Allen (Angels) and Andrew Miller (Cardinals), will begin the season with All-Star shortstop Francisco Lindor (calf), second baseman Jason Kipnis (calf) and outfielder Bradley Zimmer (right shoulder) on the injured list.
