• 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.
