On Sunday afternoon, Cleveland Indians are expected to call rookie T.J. House back up to take on nine-game winner Felix Hernandez and the Seattle Mariners.
Left-hander T.J. House last made a start for the Indians back on June 14 against the Boston Red Sox on the road. He ended up with a no decision in that game after going 5.1 innings and giving up two runs on seven hits while striking out three and walking just one. Through six Major League starts, House is 0-1 with a 4.88 ERA and he has given up 35 hits in 27.2 innings. Right-handed hitters are batting .314 against him this season with a very high .921 OPS.
In his start against the Boston Red Sox last Monday, Felix Hernandez won his ninth game of the season after pitching seven strong innings. He allowed just two earned runs on six hits in that outing while striking out six batters and walking no one. Hernandez is once against looking like an All-Star this season with his 9-2 record and his solid 2.24 ERA. He has also struck out 128 batters in 120.1 innings this year.
One player on the Mets who Hernandez does not like facing is David Murphy, who is 24-for-75 against him with six doubles, three home runs and 16 RBI. Asdrubal Cabrera is just 3-for-17 against him with four strikeouts.
