|Danny Salazar delivers heat in Wild Card loss |
|by R.J. White | CBSSports.com|
(10/3/13) Indians pitcher Danny Salazar surrendered three earned runs on four hits and two walks while striking out four in four innings, taking the loss as the Indians fell to the Rays 4-0 in Wednesday's Wild Card game.
Salazar touched 100 mph once each in the first, second and third innings and looked dominant until a third-inning home run from Delmon Young. The Rays then tacked on two more in the fourth inning, and Salazar walked the leadoff man in the fifth before being removed.
Salazar posted an 11.3 K/9 rate during the regular season, striking out 65 batters in just 52 innings. He also struck out 129 batters in 93 innings in the minors this season, giving him a total of 194 strikeouts in 145 innings over all levels in 2013 before Wednesday's Wild Card performance.

(9/29/13) According to the Cleveland Plain-Dealer, the Indians would call upon Danny Salazar to be their starting pitcher in a tiebreaker game on Monday, should one be necessary.

|Danny Salazar wins as he's spiked |
|by Jeff Lippman | CBSSports.com|
(9/25/13) Indians young starter Danny Salazar took the ball for the final time in the regular season Wednesday at home against Chicago. He left the game with an injury.
Salazar appeared to be spiked at first base while covering the bag in the sixth inning. He left after getting one out in the inning following the injury. Salazar earned the win on the start as he improved to 2-3 on the season for the Indians. He allowed two runs on six hits and a walk over 5 1/3 innings before leaving.
Salazar struck out eight batters and allowed a solo homer in the second. He threw 89 pitches before leaving the game and his ERA finishes at 3.12 for the Tribe. Cleveland needs to keep winning if Salazar is to make an appearance in the playoffs. Otherwise, his season is over and it was an excellent year for the 23-year-old.
|Indians remove restricted pitch count on Danny Salazar |
|by R.J. White | CBSSports.com|
(9/19/13) The Indians have removed pitch-count restrictions from pitcher Danny Salazar for his final regular-season start, the Cleveland Plain Dealer reports. Salazar, who has been limited to 70-80 pitches per start, threw 82 pitches in six innings Wednesday.
"I think our organization has done a really good job with Danny this year while he was in the minor leagues," manager Terry Francona told the Plain Dealer. "They kept an eye on pitch count, innings, amount of stressful innings. We've got to a point in the year where we've actually stretched him back out. He looks strong, but we're not going to let him go out there and just flail away at 130 pitches."
Salazar has excelled while pitching under the restricted pitch count, posting a 3.09 ERA, 1.11 WHIP and 57:14 in just 46 2/3 innings while averaging slightly more than 81 pitches per start, but Wednesday's 82-pitch start was his highest pitch count since throwing 103 pitches on Aug. 7.
