McAllister relieved starter Carlos Carrasco who left in the first inning Tuesday against the Yankees after taking a comebacker to the jaw. McAllister gave up one run on four hits and a walk with one strikeout in 3.2 innings.
Swisher (knee) could begin a rehab assignment as soon as next week, the Cleveland Plain Dealer reports. "He could start a rehab assignment potentially sometime as early as next week," said general manager Chris Antonetti. "It doesn't mean he's that close (to playing for the Indians). He still has to work through playing back-to-back nine-inning games, playing in the outfield and seeing how he recovers."
The Indians are optimistic that Brantley (back) will return Friday, MLB.com reports. "I think he's really trending in a good way," manager Terry Francona said Tuesday. "If you see him playing tomorrow, he's perfect. Because, with the day off [Thursday], we want to make sure we get him going in the right direction and keep him going in the right direction."
