House will remain starter for Saturday’s game
T.J. House will remain the starter for Saturday’s game against Boston as Zach McAllister will make one more rehab start.
Terry Francona told reporters before Thursday’s game that McAllister would make a third rehab start on Saturday when Columbus hosts Scranton/Wilkes-Barre. McAllister gave up a pair of runs on three hits in six innings in a rehab start on Tuesday. Two of the hits were solo home runs.
In four starts since taking McAllister’s place in the rotation, House is 0-1 with a 5.49 ERA.
ROSTER MOVE: The Indians made a move with the bullpen on Friday, recalling Kyle Crockett from Columbus and sending down Nick Hagadone.
Crockett, who was the first member of last year’s draft class to get called up to the Majors last month, made three relief appearances for the Tribe, allowing one run in 4 1/3 innings. He didn’t allow any runs in three innings over his past two appearances.
Hagadone was 1-0 with a 7.71 ERA in five appearances since he was recalled on June 2.
DRAFT PICK SIGNINGS: The Indians announced on Friday the signing of three more draft picks — outfielder Greg Allen (sixth round), shortstop Alexis Pentoja (ninth round) and pitcher Dominic DeMasi (31st round). That brings the total number of signings to 13.
