Josh Tomlin went home with a no-decision, allowing four runs over seven innings in Wednesday's 14-inning loss to the Yankees.

Compared to some of his recent starts, Tomlin was on point on Wednesday. Tomlin entered the start having allowed at least four runs without making it through the sixth inning in four out of his previous five starts. On this night, he held the Yankees to eight hits without issuing a walk while striking out five. Tomlin owns a 4.21 ERA, a 1.16 WHIP, and a 69/9 K/BB ratio. After the Indians return from the All-Star break, Tomlin will take on the Tigers on the road in his next start.

Asdrubal Cabrera doubled and scored, going 3-for-7 overall, in an extra-inning loss against the Yankees on Wednesday.

Cabrera has been in a rut at the plate, entering the night with a .412 OPS over his last 56 plate appearances. The three-hit night helps bring his OPS closer towards .700 on the season overall. The shortstop is slashing .248/.308/.391 with eight home runs and 34 RBI.

Zach McAllister will start for the Indians on Saturday afternoon against the White Sox.

McAllister was optioned to the Triple-A level on June 20 with a 5.89 ERA in 47 1/3 innings. The 26-year-old righty is not a good fantasy streamer versus Chicago.
Jul 9 - 4:28 PM

The Indians will recall either Danny Salazar or Zach McAllister to start on Saturday against the White Sox in place of the injured Justin Masterson (knee).

McAllister (2.23 ERA, 34 strikeouts over 36 1/3 innings) has the better numbers at Triple-A Columbus, but Salazar (4.93 ERA, 53 strikeouts over 42 innings) has been pitching well of late. "John Mirabelli watched Danny's last start and said he looked like he did for us last year," said manager Terry Francona. "Zach is pitching well, too." Salazar struggled with a 5.53 ERA over eight starts for the Tribe before being demoted in May, but he boasts a very high ceiling and would be the preferred option from a fantasy perspective.
Jul 9 - 10:19 AM

Trevor Bauer improved to 3-4, allowing three runs (two earned) in seven innings as the Indians walked away with a 5-3 win against the Yankees on Tuesday.

Bauer has been consistent, at least, allowing three or four runs in each of his last seven outings. He was able to outduel Masahiro Tanaka on Tuesday, affording the Yankees only four hits while walking two and striking out six. The promising right-hander carries a 4.23 ERA, a 1.39 ERA, and a 60/24 K/BB ratio. Bauer will face the White Sox at home to lead his team into the All-Star break.
Jul 8 - 10:23 PM

Cody Allen worked a 1-2-3 ninth inning to grab his 10th save as the Indians emerged victorious over the Yankees on Tuesday.

Allen faced three lefties -- Brian McCann, Brian Roberts, and Ichiro Suzuki -- but had no issues finishing out the ballgame, recording two strikeouts in the process. Allen has done great work since taking the closer's role away from John Axford, as he is now 10-for-11 in save chances with a 2.33 ERA, a 1.09 WHIP, and a 49/15 K/BB ratio in 38 2/3 innings this season.
Jul 8 - 10:15 PM

Jason Kipnis singled twice in four at-bats, stole two bases, and scored a run as the Indians defeated the Yankees on Tuesday.

Kipnis now has four multi-hit games out of seven in July, but he has essentially been a singles machine, logging only one extra-base hit in his last 10 games. The pair of stolen bases gives him 10 on the season in 11 attempts, and he's slashing .253/.327/.357 with three home runs and 23 RBI.
Jul 8 - 10:12 PM

Nick Swisher had one hit in four at-bats, but it was a two-run home run that gave the Indians the lead in Tuesday's win over the Yankees.

Swisher has now homered in back-to-back games, perhaps a sign things are starting to turn around. His sixth-inning, two-run home run off of Masahiro Tanaka gave the Indians a 4-3 lead, which they did not relinquish. Swisher's slash line remains a paltry .198/.286/.339. He has hit seven home runs and knocked in 32 runs.
Jul 8 - 10:08 PM

Michael Brantley notched his fifth consecutive multi-hit game, going 3-for-4 with a pair of RBI doubles and a solo home run in Tuesday's win over the Yankees.

Brantley's breakout season continues. He doubled in runs in the first and fifth innings, then added a solo home run in the seventh inning, all against Masahiro Tanaka. The 27-year-old outfielder is slashing a cool .328/.391/.529 with 14 home runs, 60 RBI, and 10 stolen bases.
Jul 8 - 10:05 PM

Indians designated RHP Mark Lowe for assignment.

The move clears a spot for the newly-promoted Roberto Perez on the 40-man roster. Lowe has allowed seven runs (three earned) over seven innings of work with the Indians this season.
Jul 8 - 2:59 PM

Indians optioned OF Tyler Holt to Triple-A Columbus.

Holt appeared in one game during his brief stay with the big club, but didn't get an at-bat. The 25-year-old returns to a .300/.425/.380 batting line in Triple-A.
Jul 8 - 2:57 PM

Indians purchased the contract of C Roberto Perez from Triple-A Columbus.

Perez, 25, was batting .305/.405/.517 with eight home runs and 43 RBI over 53 games this season in Triple-A. He'll serve as Yan Gomes' backup, which enables Carlos Santana to stay at first base.
Jul 8 - 2:55 PM

Indians recalled LHP Nick Hagadone from Triple-A Columbus.

Hagadone has allowed two runs over three relief innings with the big club this season. He'll provide an extra bullpen arm over the next few days.
Jul 8 - 2:52 PM

Indians placed RHP Justin Masterson on the 15-day disabled list with a right knee injury.

Masterson missed a start with right knee soreness late last month and has struggled ever since, so the Indians will give him a bit of a break. The 29-year-old owns a disappointing 5.51 ERA through 19 starts in his walk year.
Jul 8 - 2:46 PM

Justin Masterson was tagged for five runs in two-plus innings by the Yankees in a loss Monday.

Masterson was all over the place tonight in his second start back after missing a turn with a sore knee. Just 24 of his 54 pitches were strikes, and he had a hit batter to go along with three walks In his last five starts, he's walked 17 over just 18 innings. The Indians might need to stash him on the DL for a couple of weeks, let him try to work through his troubles on the side.
