The Indians have recalled Carlos Carrasco from Class AAA Columbus to start Saturday against Detroit at Comerica Park. Zach McAllister was placed on the 15-day disabled list with a sore right middle finger to make room for Carrasco.

Carrasco could drop his appeal to his eight-game suspension after Saturday's start and beging serving it. He was suspended for hitting New York's Kevin Youkilis on April 9 at Progressive Field. He has been pitching at Columbus since.

The Tigers are starting Rick Porcello.

Justin Masterson was scheduled to pitch today, but has been moved back to Sunday's game against the Tigers.
