Byron Buxton was scratched from the Twins lineup Tuesday night because of a migraine.

Greetings from San Juan, Puerto Rico ... where the Twins and Indians begin a two-game series at Estadio Hiram Bithorn.

It was pouring at the stadium at 4 p.m. local time (3 in the Twin Cities) but it's expected to pass and we should get the game in ... it's scheduled for 6:10.  Tomorrow's rainy forecast seems more troublesome.

Eddie Rosario and Jose Berrios, Twins players from the island, had a pregame press conference at the stadium. Berrios will get the start on Wednesday, with Jake Odorizzi starting tonight.

Max Kepler will move to center field for the Twins and Robbie Grossman replaces Buxton in the lineup and will play right.

Tonight's lineups:

Cleveland: SS Francisco Lindor, 2B Jason Kipnis, 3B Jose Ramirez, LF Michael Brantley, DH Edwin Encarnacion, 1B Yonder Alonso, C Yan Gomez, RF Tyler Naquin, CF Bradley Zimmer.  Corey Kluber is the starting pitcher.

Twins: 2B Brian Dozier, 1B Joe Mauer, 3B Miguel Sano, LF Eddie Rosario, DH Logan Morrison, SS Eduardo Escobar, RF Max Kepler, RF Robbie Grossman, C Jason Castro.

The series is being eagerly anticipated in baseball-hungry Puerto Rico ...
