After Wednesday’s 13-inning, up-and-down marathon (and sweep of the Tigers), the Indians’ rotation and roster required a little shifting. Josh Tomlin was scheduled to start the opener of a three-game series in Baltimore, but since he went in as a reliever last night, Justin Masterson (2-3, 5.06 ERA) will be taking the mound for the Indians. He’ll be going up against Wei-Yin Chen (5-2, 3.69 ERA). Among the roster moves: right-hander Zach McAllister was placed on the 15-day DL with low back strain and, I would imagine, an equally bruised ego. The Indians selected the contract of RHP Mark Lowe from AAA Columbus and recalled lefty T.J. House from Columbus. Left-hander Kyle Crockett was optioned to Columbus. Nyjer Morgan was moved from the 15-day DL to the 60-day DL.
