Playing in his first game in nearly two weeks, center fielder Bradley Zimmer, the Indians' first-round pick in the 2014 First-Year Player Draft, collected three hits Tuesday, helping Class A short-season Mahoning Valley defeat host State College, 5-0.

Zimmer, the Indians' No. 4 prospect, had been sidelined since July 31 with concussion-like symptoms. In his return to the Scrappers' lineup Tuesday, Zimmer went 3-for-5 with a double and a stolen base. He drove in two runs and scored once.

Right fielder Greg Allen, the Indians' sixth-round pick, went 1-for-5 with a run and a stolen base, his 19th of the season. In 10 games this month, Allen is hitting .349/.417/.372.

The Indians drafted Zimmer out of the University of San Francisco with the 21st overall pick in June. He has played in 31 games since signing, all with Mahoning Valley. He is hitting .298/.372/.446 with two home runs and six stolen bases.
