The Indians have a double header on Monday against the White Sox. They will have the opportunity to try out Major League Baseball’s new 26th man rule. The provision exists for the day a team has a double header. It allows teams to bring up a pitcher from the minor leagues without sending another player down or having to release someone altogether.

The Indians will use the provision to activate Zach McAllister to make a spot start on Monday. Zach’s stats at triple A Columbus: 3-1 with an ERA of 2.83. Struck out 32 in 35 innings, walking 11 in his 6 starts.
