McAllister threw two innings of scoreless relief against the Twins on Saturday, striking out five. His average fastball on Friday and Saturday out of the bullpen was clocked at 97 mph, as opposed to 93 mph earlier this year as a starter.
The Indians are hopeful that Kipnis (hamstring) will be able to return to the lineup Saturday, MLB.com reports. "He showed up and actually exhibited pretty good strength," manager Terry Francona said prior to Friday's game. "He's sore enough where we're not going to play him today. We would see about tomorrow, but I think we're more in that range, as opposed to four or five days. I think when you say 'day to day,' we really are legitimately day to day."
Walters (ribs) is day-to-day with rib soreness after an MRI revealed no structural damage, MLB.com reports. "Structurally, he's good, so we know it's a soft tissue issue," manager Terry Francona said. "We just have to see how he responds. The trainers think this might be pretty quick."
