Description: The Indians have designated right-hander Zach McAllister for assignment. Because McAllister is more than three years removed from his MLB debut, Cleveland needed to secure optional waivers on him before they could send him to Triple-A and in order to do that it had to designate him. The Indians can pull him off waivers if anyone claims him, so McAllister will end up with Triple-A Columbus. SOURCE: Cleveland Plain Dealer
Insight: McAllister has imploded the past seven starts, going 0-4 with a 9.88 ERA in 27 1/3 innings. The right-hander had a 3.75 ERA in 2013 and his FIP this year is 4.04, so he could turn things around if he gets another shot.
 
Cold7/31/2014 10:21:00 PM
Description: Indians right-hander Zach McAllister gave up four runs on eight hits in 3 1/3 innings Thursday against the Mariners.
Insight: In his last seven outings, McAllister has thrown a quality start just once and allowed 30 earned runs on 41 hits in 27 1/3 innings (9.88 ERA).
 
7/9/2014 5:14:00 PM
Description: Indians right-hander Zach McAllister (3-4, 5.89 ERA, 1.52 WHIP) will start Saturday against the White Sox, according to Jordan Bastian of mlb.com.
Insight: McAllister was sent to the minors on June 20 after coming off the disabled list. He's posted a 2.39 ERA in four starts since then.
 
6/20/2014 2:00:00 PM
Description: Indians right-hander Zach McAllister (3-4, 5.89 ERA, 1.52 WHIP) has been optioned to Triple-A Columbus.
Insight: McAllister hadn't done much that was fantasy worthy of late, yielding four earned runs or more in five of the last six.
 
Cold6/18/2014 9:01:00 PM
Description: Indians right-hander Zach McAllister (back) is expected to start Friday against the Angels.
Insight: He was activated from the disabled list Wednesday and was going to start Thursday, but Wednesday's game was rained out and Justin Masterson will have his start moved. McAllister allowed 18 hits, 17 earned runs, six walks and four homers in 7 2/3 innings over his last three starts before going on the disabled list with lower back soreness on May 22. He has a 3.83 FIP this season, so he should improve his 5.89 ERA, but he shouldn't be used Thursday against the hot-hitting Angels.
 
Cold6/8/2014 2:24:00 PM
Description: Indians right-hander Zach McAllister (back) will make a rehab start Tuesday, according to Jordan Bastian of mlb.com.
Insight: McAllister will return to Cleveland's rotation after that if he doesn't suffer a setback. He allowed 18 hits, 17 earned runs, six walks and four homers in 7 2/3 innings over his last three starts before going on the disabled list with lower back soreness, though the injury may have just been an excuse to allow the right-hander to work out his issues. McAllister has a 3.83 FIP this season, so he should improve his 5.89 ERA.

Cold5/21/2014 6:03:00 PM
Description: Indians right-hander Zach McAllister was knocked around again on Wednesday against the Tigers.
Insight: McAllister gave up four earned runs (five total) in two innings and has allowed 17 earned runs on 18 hits (4 HR) in 7 2/3 innings his last three starts. McAllister's 3.85 FIP suggets his 5.89 ERA will improve, but there's no way fantasy owners can trust him right now.
 
Cold5/16/2014 10:09:00 PM
Description: Indians right-hander Zach McAllister struck out the side in the first inning but gave up eight runs in the second while getting just one out before being removed Friday against the Athletics.
Insight: McAllister (5.36 ERA, 1.43 WHIP) lowered his ERA to 3.18 on May 5, but he has allowed 13 earned runs on 13 hits with four walks in his last 5 2/3 innings.
 
5/5/2014 10:35:00 PM
Description: Indians right-hander Zach McAllister held his own Monday in a pitching battle with Twins starter Kyle Gibson.
Insight: While Gibson tossed seven scoreless innings for Minnesota, McAllister threw 6 2/3 shutout frames for Cleveland (8 K's, 1 BB). The eight strikeouts he recorded were a season-high. McAllister's 3.18 ERA is the lowest of any pitcher in Cleveland's starting rotation.
 
4/9/2014 8:08:00 PM
Description: Indians starter Zach McAllister tossed a gem Wednesday against the Padres.
Insight: McAllister allowed five hits, struck out seven and didn't walk a batter over 7 2/3 innings to win his first game of the season. He put 10 men on base and gave up three earned runs in four innings at Oakland in his first start of the year and had a 1.36 WHIP over the last two seasons.
 
4/1/2014 9:00:00 PM
Description: Indians starter Zach McAllister still will start Wednesday against the Athletics despite Tuesday's rainout. SOURCE: Jim Berdysz, indiansbaseballinsider.com
Insight: Corey Kluber will start the first game of the doubleheader against Scott Kazmir. The Athletics pushed Wednesday's scheduled starter Jesse Chavez to Thursday and will call someone up to start Wednesday night against McAllister. McAllister went 15-17 with a 3.99 ERA, a 1.36 WHIP and a 7.3 K/9 the last two seasons.
 
10/2/2013 10:00:00 AM
Description: Indians starter Zach McAllister is questionable for his next scheduled start.
Insight: McAllister went 9-9 this season with a decent ERA (3.75), but an inflated WHIP due to a mediocre K-BB ratio. His fantasy value was minimal this season.
 
Hot8/25/2013 10:20:00 AM
Description: Indians starter Zach McAllister is 3-0 with a 1.83 ERA over his last three starts.
Insight: McAllister made two of those starts against the Twins and one against the Angels, so it's not like he dominated the best offensive clubs in the league. He's a serviceable fantasy arm, one that is 7-7 with a 3.51 ERA, a 1.30 WHIP and 79 K in 105 innings this season.
 
7/29/2013 9:57:00 PM
Description: Indians starter Zach McAllister gave up two runs on five hits over seven innings Monday in a no decision versus the White Sox.
Insight: McAllister was making his second start since returning from his sprained right middle finger. He's 4-6 with a 3.48 ERA and a 1.38 WHIP this season.
 
7/19/2013 8:26:00 PM
Description: According to Jordan Bastian of MLB.com, Indians manager Terry Francona said the team is optimistic righty Zach McAllister (finger) will be ready to return to the rotation Tuesday at Seattle.
Insight: McAllister (4-5, 3.43 ERA, 1.37 WHIP) will need to get through a bullpen session before he's cleared to start. He hasn't pitched in the big leagues since June 2 due to a sprained right middle finger.
 
7/10/2013 8:13:00 PM
Description: According to the Akron Beacon Journal, Indians righty Zach McAllister (finger) is expected to start his minor league rehab assignment with Triple-A Columbus Friday.
Insight: McAllister (4-5, 3.43 ERA, 1.37 WHIP) hasn't pitched since June 2 due to a sprained right middle finger. He'll make a second rehab start next week with Double-A Akron before returning from the DL.
 
6/21/2013 4:15:00 PM
Description: According to MLB.com, Indians starter Zach McAllister played catch the last couple of days. The righty has been on the DL since June 8 with a strained right middle finger.
Insight: McAllister cannot throw a curveball yet, so he's limited to fastballs. He won't return for another few weeks.
 
6/9/2013 12:16:00 PM
Description: According to the Cleveland Plain Dealer, Indians starter Zach McAllister will miss between two and four weeks as he recovers from a sprained finger.
Insight: Manager Terry Francona believes McAllister suffered the injury by gripping his curve ball too hard. We'll see if McAllister (4-5, 3.43 ERA) alters his approach when he returns to the mound.
 
6/8/2013 3:48:00 PM
Description: Cleveland starter Zach McAllister has been placed on the DL.
Insight: The Indians are calling his injury a "sprained finger." The move was made retroactive to June 3rd, meaning that McAllister (4-5, 3.43 ERA) will be eligible to return on June 18th.
