Cleveland Indians SP Zach McAllister is expected to break camp with the team due to the fact he is out of options, and he proved last season he could pitch out of the bullpen as well as serve as a starter. "I think he's really excited to know he's going to be on the ballclub," manager Terry Francona said Sunday, Feb. 22.
Fantasy Tip: McAllister's role is yet to be determined, therefore his fantasy outlook is up in the air at the moment. If he works in a long relief role he is only worth a look in rotisserie formats for help in the ERA and WHIP categories. If he can win a rotation job he will obviously have more appeal.

Cleveland Indians SP Bruce Chen will get a crack at the starting rotation this spring, but Chen will have plenty of competition for the fifth spot. Danny Salazar, T.J. House and Zach McAllister will also compete for the job.

Cleveland Indians SPs Corey Kluber, Carlos Carrasco, Trevor Bauer and Gavin Floyd comprise the first four spots of the rotation, according to general manager Chris Antonetti. That leaves SPs T.J. House, Zach McAllister, Danny Salazar and Josh Tomlin in a battle for the fifth rotation job once spring training rolls around. McAllister is out of options and could open in the bullpen if he fails to secure a rotation spot.

Cleveland Indians SP Zach McAllister was designated for assignment Friday, August 1. In a corresponding move, OF Tyler Holt was recalled from Triple-A Columbus.
Fantasy Tip: McAllister and his near-6.00 ERA are not worth holding on to in any format. Holt is unlikely to see enough at-bats to gain fantasy relevance, although he has excellent contact skills and modest stolen-base potential.
