It’d be hard to let go of someone like Zach McAllister because he throws in the mid-90s. But at some point, he’s got to produce and he’s not someone who can be trusted in high- or low-leverage situations right now.
With a 5.65 ERA, opponents are batting .290 off the right-hander.
He’s not even racking up strikeouts as she should with that 95 mile-per-hour fastball.
McAllister is averaging 7.1 strikeouts per nine innings. It’s his lowest total since 2014, when he was still starting games for the Tribe.
After permanently moving to the bullpen in 2016, he averaged 9.3 and 9.6 strikeouts per nine over the next two seasons, respectively.
With the Indians expected to add relievers via the trade market, someone is going to lose a spot in the bullpen and McAlister may be a prime candidate.
