Saturday, May 12, 2012
BOSTON (AP) -- Cleveland Indians pitcher Josh Tomlin has been scratched from his start against the Red Sox because of a sore right wrist.
Tomlin will be replaced by Zach McAllister, who was recalled from Triple-A Columbus this week and recorded his first major league win against Chicago in the opener of a day-night doubleheader.
McAllister allowed two earned runs and six hits in a career-high six innings.
Tomlin is 1-2 with a 4.67 ERA in six starts. In his previous start, the right-hander allowed two runs and five hits with seven strikeouts in 7 1-3 innings.
It is not yet known when Tomlin began experiencing soreness in the wrist.
