Zach McAllister‘s return to Cleveland lasted all of three days, as the Indians have optioned the right-hander back to Triple-A after he tossed seven innings of three-run ball versus the White Sox on Saturday.
Even with the decent outing over the weekend McAllister has a 5.63 ERA in 11 starts for the Indians this season, but he was a solid mid-rotation starter in 2012 and 2013. He also went 5-0 with a 2.23 ERA in six starts at Triple-A following his first demotion there earlier this season, so odds are the 26-year-old will be back in Cleveland relatively soon.
McAllister has a 4.37 ERA in 61 career starts since the Indians acquired him from the Yankees as a minor leaguer in the 2010 trade for outfielder Austin Kearns.
