Thanks to last night's rain delay, the Indians are once again are having to deal with a tired bullpen. The difference this time around is that there's an off-day tomorrow, so Terry Francona can be a bit more aggressive with how he uses his relievers.

Jason Kipnis returns from the DL today after missing a month with a strained abdominal muscle. He returns to a lineup that has scored just five runs over the past three days (this coming in the wake a nine-run outburst on Sunday).

TJ House gets his second start tonight, and seemingly has a tough matchup, as most of Chicago's best hitters bat from the right side.
