The Cleveland Indians have recalled right-hander Zach McAllister from Triple-A to start tonight's game against the Baltimore Orioles.

To make room on their roster for McAllister, the Indians have optioned left-hander Scott Barnes to Triple-A.

McAllister is being called up to replace right-hander Jeanmar Gomez in the Indians rotation. Gomez was optioned to Triple-A earlier in the week and replaced by Barnes on Cleveland’s roster.

McAllister has already started four games for the Indians this season. The 24-year-old has maintained an ERA and WHIP of 3.96 and 1.240 with 7.9 SO/9 and 2.2 BB/9 over his 25 innings. He has spent a majority of the season pitching for Cleveland’s Triple-A affiliate, posting an ERA and WHIP of 2.98 and 1.232 over his 11 starts.

McAllister made his major league debut with the Indians last season, starting four games for the club. Over his eight major league appearances, McAllister owns a career ERA and WHIP of 4.85 and 1.500.

Barnes appeared in one game for the Indians since being recalled earlier in the week. The 24-year-old allowed one run on one hit and one walk over his 2 2/3 innings of work. On the season, Barnes allowed six runs on seven hits and five walks over his seven innings pitched.
