News: McAllister is expected to make the big league club out of spring training, but it's unclear whether that will be as a starter or out of the bullpen, Nick Camino of Newsradio WTAM 1100 reports.
Impact: McAllister spent most of last season as a starter, but struggled in that role with the Indians (5.67 ERA and 1.49 WHIP with 60 strikeouts in 73 innings). He eventually moved to the bullpen, where he finished out the season with a much more respectable 2.77 ERA and 1.15 WHIP with 14 strikeouts in 13 innings, upping his K/BB ratio from 2.31 to 7.00.
