BALTIMORE (AP) -- The Cleveland Indians have placed right-hander Zach McAllister on the 15-day disabled list with a lower back strain.

The right-hander is 3-4 with a 5.89 ERA in 10 starts with Cleveland this season.

Cleveland also recalled left-hander T.J. House from Triple-A Columbus on Thursday and purchased the contract of right-hander Mark Lowe from the same minor league club.

In addition, the Indians optioned left-hander Kyle Crockett to Columbus and transferred outfielder Nyjer Morgan from the 15-day DL to the 60-day disabled list. The 24-year-old House made big league debut with the Indians on May 17 and pitched a scoreless inning.

The 30-year-old old Lowe is fourth in the International League with eight saves. He broke into the majors with Seattle in 2006 and has not pitched in the majors this season.
