Zach McAllister pitched four strong innings yesterday in the Cleveland Indians' 8-3 win over the Oakland Athletics.
McAllister, who is trying to grab the fifth and final spot in the Indians' starting rotation, gave up two hits and an unearned run. He walked two and struck out four.
Some have ticketed McAllister for a bullpen slot simply because he cannot be sent to the minors without being exposed to waivers, unlike Danny Salazar and Josh Tomlin.
However, if McAllister keeps pitching like this, he could make the rotation, with Tomlin in the bullpen and Salazar ticketed for Columbus.
T.J. House, whose effectiveness and lefty status has seemingly won him a rotation spot, will pitch tonight against the San Francisco Giants.Read more... Join the Conversation...
