McAllister called up to start Tuesday's nightcap
CLEVELAND -- The Indians' hectic September schedule necessitated yet another callup on Monday, as Zach McAllister was officially recalled from Triple-A Columbus to make the start in the nightcap of Tuesday's twin bill with the White Sox.

McAllister had a solid season with the Clippers, going 12-3 with a 3.32 ERA in 25 starts. He struck out 128 and walked 31 in 154 2/3 innings.

But if he's going to be a serious candidate for a regular big league rotation job, he'll have to improve on the two spot starts that he made with the Tribe this year. McAllister gave up 13 runs, 10 of which were earned, on 15 hits over 7 1/3 innings in those two starts against the Blue Jays and Mariners.

"Obviously the year he had in Triple-A, he has to be given consideration [for next year]," Manny Acta said. "That said, it hasn't translated up here. We need to see better than we've seen the last two outings."
