The Indians have acquired 22-year old righty starting pitcher Zach McAllister from the Yankees to complete the Austin Kearns trade. McAllister came into this season as the Yankees’ #5 prospect according to Baseball America. McAllister started 24 games this year in AAA-ball for the Yankees and he was 8-10 with a 5.09 ERA and a 1.53 WHIP. He has now pitched in 98 games (86 starts) in his five years in the minors and he is 38-32 with 1 save, a 3.40 ERA and a 1.26 WHIP. This deal might look like a steal down the road for the Indians as McAllister has a nice upside.
