Indians' McAllister sharp in bullpen session
KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP)
Indians right-hander Zach McAllister threw 45 pitches in the bullpen before Tuesday night's game in Kansas City and manager Terry Francona said everything went according to plan.
McAllister was 4-5 with a 3.43 ERA in 11 starts when he went on the disabled list retroactive to June 3 with a sprained right middle finger. It's the first time he's been on the DL.
The news wasn't so positive for right-hander Brett Myers, who's been out with right elbow inflammation since April 20. He missed a rehab outing on Monday night with soreness.
In other news, Francona said that Michael Bourn is expected to return from the three-day paternity list on Wednesday night against the Royals. Francona also said that right-hander Carlos Carrasco is slated to pitch Saturday against the Tigers.
