Found July 21, 2013 on MLB Injury News:
The second-place Indians are soon to get a boost in their starting rotation according to Jordan Bastian of MLB.com. Manager Terry Francona told reporters Saturday that right-hander Zach McAllister will get the ball Tuesday against the Mariners. McAllister, 25, has been on the disabled list since June 8 with a sprained middle finger on his pitching hand, but he threw six scoreless innings during a rehab start for Triple-A Columbus on Thursday, and that must've convinced the Indians he's ready for a return. McAllister is 4-5 with a 3.43 ERA, 1.37 WHIP and 45 strikeouts in 65 2/3 innings this season. Six of his 11 starts have been statistically quality starts. Carlos Carrasco and Trevor Bauer have been pretty bad in McAllister's absence, and though Danny Salazar had a good start July 11, getting McAllister back definitely strengthens the back end of Cleveland's rotation.

Trend Spotting: Michael Bourn and a few notes

On successful teams or at least competitive ones it becomes easy to overemphasize or highlight specific player performance while undervaluing other complimentary production. This probably occurs because polarizing production is most interesting at least in terms of penetrating or attentional biases.

Jason Kipnis: ‘We need some guys to start stepping up right now’

A three year Indians review: First Base

The fans are still not rushing out to support this team as the Indians...

Langwell becoming a reliable arm out of the 'pen

Notes from the Wigwam: Time to step up

Indians call on Masterson to try to avoid sweep
