Right-hander Zach McAllister was officially recalled from Triple-A Columbus for Monday's doubleheader against the White Sox. Under Major League Baseball's new Collective Bargaining Agreement, teams can carry a 26th player for a doubleheader. No subsequent transaction is needed to add the player to the roster.
Indians closer Chris Perez has notched 11 saves in the Tribe's first 15 wins of the season. According to the Elias Sports Bureau, Perez has equaled a franchise record for fewest team wins at the point of reaching 11 saves. Doug Jones also had 11 saves in the club's first 15 wins in 1990.
Entering Monday, the Indians' bullpen had combined to strand 21 percent (34 of 42) of inherited runners this season. That mark was the third-best rate in the Majors. Right-handed setup man Vinnie Pestano has led the charge by stranding all 10 of his inherited runners this year.
