Boston, MA – Cleveland Indians pitcher Josh Tomlin was scratched from Saturday's scheduled start against Boston because of a sore right wrist.
The Indians will instead send right-hander Zach McAllister to the Fenway Park mound for his sixth career big league start. McAllister is 1-0 after beating the White Sox on Monday for his first career win.
Tomlin developed a sore wrist in his last outing five days ago in the second game of a doubleheader against Chicago from gripping a wet ball. He is 1-2 with a 4.67 ERA in six games, including five starts, this season.
