Indians SP T.J. House lands on 15-day DL with shoulder injury


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(5/1/2015) The Indians announced Friday they placed starting pitcher T.J. House on the 15-day disabled list due to left shoulder inflammation. However, the team did not immediately announce who will replace him in the rotation.

House said his shoulder injury flared up during an emergency start Saturday against the Tigers, per MLB.com. He had to fill in for Trevor Bauer, who was scratched due to an illness. House threw a bullpen session last Friday and was then thrust into action Saturday.

House dropped to 0-4 after a 5-1 loss to the Blue Jays on Thursday. He lasted just three innings, allowing five runs. He has not pitched past three innings in three of his four starts. He has a 13.15 ERA and 2.54 WHIP.

A potential rotation replacement could be Zach McAllister, who was sent to the bullpen in mid-April to clear a rotation spot for Danny Salazar. McAllister, who has made one start this season, has a 2.31 ERA in six relief appearances.


Danny Salazar in, Zach McAllister out of Indians rotation


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(4/17/2015) The Saturday start of Indians right-hander Danny Salazar in Minnesota won't be a one-and-done. He is destined to stay in the rotation while Zach McAllister heads to the bullpen, per the Cleveland Plain Dealer.

Salazar pitched horribly in spring training despite hitting 95 mph consistently. But he hurled six shutout innings with seven strikeouts in his first start at Triple-A Columbus before being recalled.

"I have to show them that I've been working hard," Salazar said, per MLB.com. "I have to prove it."

McAllister has struggled to find the plate with anything but his fastball as a starter. He is considered better suited to come out of the bullpen, where his 97 mph fastball can be most effectively utilized.

"I think Zach's going to be a starter in the Major Leagues," Indians manager Terry Francona said. "But right now, I think he can really help us as a weapon in the bullpen."


Indians to skip Zach McAllister in rotation


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(4/12/2015) Indians pitcher Zach McAllister will be available out of the bullpen Tuesday, as the team will not need a fifth starter until April 22, the Cleveland Plain Dealer reports.

McAllister struggled in his season debut Friday, giving up five runs on 13 hits in four innings. It's possible he's better suited to the bullpen role, and potential fifth starter Danny Salazar produced a gem in his season debut at Triple-A.


Indians P Zach McAllister gives up 13 hits in loss to Tigers


by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com
(4/10/2015) Indians pitcher Zach McAllister surrendered five earned runs in four innings in Friday's 8-4 loss to the Tigers. 

McAllister allowed 13 hits, struck out five and walked one. He gave up a two-run home run to Nick Castellanos in the fifth inning. McAllister was credited with the loss. 


Indians' Zach McAllister delivers strong performance Thursday


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(4/2/2015) Indians pitcher Zach McAllister allowed just two runs (one earned) on nine hits in 6 1/3 innings while striking out four and walking none in his final start of the spring Thursday against the Reds.

"I'm excited," McAllister said after his final outing of the spring, per MLB.com. "I think I accomplished a lot of the things that I wanted to in spring so far. I'm looking forward to getting started."

McAllister earned a win in his team's 4-3 victory to move to 3-1 on the spring. He finishes the spring season with a 2.84 ERA and 28:4 K:BB ratio in 25 1/3 innings.

"He came in on a mission," manager Terry Francona said. "And, it's funny, because I remember talking to [Indians pitching coach Mickey Callaway] this winter. He said, he goes, 'Zach's going to come in raring to go.' he had some ups and downs last year and he worked so hard. He's overpowering with his fastball, and his touch and feel on his offspeed has been really good. Because of that, he's been pretty dominating."

McAllister is slated to start the team's home opener April 10 against the Tigers.


Indians line up rotation, Zach McAllister to pitch home opener


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(4/1/2015) Indians manager Terry Francona has set the rotation for the first week of the season, with Zach McAllister slated to serve as the No. 4 starter and pitch the team's home opener next Friday against the Tigers, the Cleveland Plain Dealer reports.

Corey Kluber draws the Opening Day assignment Monday against the Astros after winning the AL Cy Young award in 2014. He'll be followed by Carlos Carrasco Tuesday and Trevor Bauer Wednesday. McAllister will then face the Tigers Friday, with T.J. House taking the mound Saturday and Kluber pitching Sunday.


Indians' T.J. House, Zach McAllister win rotation spots


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(3/29/2015) The Indians have named Zach McAllister the No. 4 starter, lining him up to pitch the team's home opener, and T.J. House the No. 5 starter, USA Today reports.

McAllister and House were part of a heated competion for the team's two open rotation spots this spring and earned a leg up when Danny Salazar was optioned earlier this week. Manager Terry Francona announced the projected rotation before Sunday's spring game.


Indians pitcher Zach McAllister fans nine in outing Saturday


by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(3/28/2015) Indians pitcher Zach McAllister went five innings Saturday against the Brewers, allowing two runs on six hits with nine strikeouts. McAllister, who is expected to make one more start before Opening Day, touched 97 mph with his fastball in the appearance, according to Cleveland.com.

"He's been impressive and he's been doing it all spring," said Francona. "He's not just throwing strikes, he's down in the zone when he wants to and then he can elevate with some velocity. I think his hard work is really paying off."

McAllister has felt he always had the added velocity.

"Throughout my career I've always felt I've had a little more (velocity) in there if I could maintain it," said McAllister. "For whatever reason, whether it's being more consistent with my delivery or my arm action, I'm just trusting that when I let it go it's going to go where I want it to go. I'm not trying to place anything."


Salazar demoted; McAllister, House, Tomlin will compete for final spots


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(3/27/2015) 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
(3/23/2015) 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'


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(3/3/2015) 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
(3/3/2015) 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
(2/22/2015) 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. 


Four of the five spots in Indians' rotation already decided


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

Over his last six starts covering 23 innings, McAllister has allowed 25 earned runs. He owns a 5.91 ERA and a 1.52 WHIP over 14 starts (67 innings) this season. He'll try to get back on track Tuesday at home against Cincinnati.

McAllister (3-6) was staked to a 5-0 lead after two innings but he gave up four runs in the fourth inning to tie the game after the Royals picked up one in the third. He put the first batter of the fifth on base before being pulled, and that runner would come around to score. McAllister owns a 5.65 ERA and 54:26 K:BB ratio in 63 2/3 innings. The team may go with him Thursday against the Mariners, though he isn't assured of getting another start after being recalled earlier Saturday and failing to impress.
