MINNEAPOLIS: Manager Terry Francona made it official this afternoon: Zach McAllister will come off the disabled list to rejoin the rotation Tuesday night against the Mariners in Seattle.
""He's all set, good to go,'' Francona said, after McAllister threw a bullpen session. ""He's done a really good job of being patient. We impressed on him that if he did it right, he would be able to continue with his progress instead of fiddling around and having this be a problem.''
McAllister has been on the DL since June 8, with what has been described as a strained right middle finger. But the injury could have turned into something more serious if not for serious attention to letting it heal totally.
