Salazar demoted; McAllister, House, Tomlin will compete for final spots
|by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com|
|(12:40 pm ET) The Indians have optioned right-hander Danny Salazar to Triple-A Columbus, just a day removed from a dreadful Cactus League outing, according to the Plain Dealer.
Salazar coughed up seven runs -- six earned -- on six hits and no walks while striking out six over 3 1/3 innings of work against the Reds. The 25-year-old posted a whopping 8.18 ERA through 11 innings this spring.
"I don't know. The stuff is definitely there. It's not there yet consistently, whether he's locating or following a pitch up with two pitches in a row," manager Terry Francona said after Salazar's outing on Thursday. "Again, we'll keep working at it -- that's for darn sure -- but the results weren't the kind of what we're looking for."
The demotion narrows Zach McAllister, T.J. House and Josh Tomlin down to the two final spots in the rotation. House and Tomlin have options, while McAllister is out of options and could be in line for one of those two spots, per the Plain Dealer.
Indians pitcher Zach McAllister continues bid for rotation spot
|by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com|
|(3/23/15) Indians pitcher Zach McAllister tossed four innings Monday, allowing just one unearned run on two hits with four strikeouts for the Tribe. He has now recorded 15 strikeouts this spring and feeling strong on the mound, reports MLB.com.
"I felt good. I'm happy with where I'm at right now," McAllister said. "I'm very happy with my [command]. I think it's carried over from what I did in August in Triple-A and in September in the big leagues, as far as being really aggressive with all my pitches."
Manager Terry Francona also liked his performance Monday.
"[He was] good," Francona said. "He threw his fastball down and, off it, threw some good splits. A couple good breaking balls. ... To his credit, he comes ready. He works so hard that he comes out of the chute throwing pretty hard and it's not like he's overthrowing. He just prepares so well."
Indians' Fracona on McAllister: 'I thought he was pretty good'

|(3/3/15) Indians pitcher Zach McAllister allowed one run on three hits in two innings while striking out three in Tuesday's Cactus League opener, and manager Terry Francona was pleased with his performance, MLB.com reports.
"He was actually pretty good," Francona said. "He gave up the two-out hit, but I thought he was down in the zone, showed good arm strength and used all his pitches. I thought he was pretty good."
McAllister is out of options and competing for the fifth spot in the rotation this spring.
Indians' Francona comfortable with battle for No. 5 in starting rotation
|by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com|
|(3/3/15) With Josh Tomlin, T.J. House, Danny Salazar, Shaun Marcum, Bruce Chen and Zach McAllister all competing for the final spot of the Indians' rotation, manager Terry Francona told reporters that a few players may end up going to Triple-A or moved to the bullpen once camp breaks, per the Plain Dealer.
"At the moment, we're comfortable," Francona said. "We've all seen where you look up a month later and things happen. The one thing you don't ever want to have happen is have your season derailed because guys go down. You try to come to camp with not only who you think are going to be your five, but you have to have some depth. We have some guys who will probably end up going to Triple-A. Maybe a guy or two ends up in the bullpen. You never know."
Indians' Zach McAllister hoping versatility earns him a spot
|by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com|
|(2/22/15) Indians pitcher Zach McAllister is hoping his versatility will earn him a spot on the team's 25-man roster, according to the Northeast Ohio Media Group.
McAllister is out of options, and the team could lose him on waivers if he doesn't make the final roster. While it would be tough for him to break the rotation, McAllister showed he could excel as a reliever last September.
Manager Terry Francona said McAllister should make the team if he performs up to his expectations. "From where I sit, as long as he throws the ball like he did in September, regardless of what his role is, he's going to help us win."
McAllister said he would be happy pitching in any role. "I'm here to compete whether it's in the bullpen or as a starter," McAllister said. "Eventually it will all play itself out. I'm not here to really worry about what will happen."
McAllister posted a 5.23 ERA over 86 innings in 2014.
