|Danny Salazar gets the call for start Tuesday |
|by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com|
(4:25 pm ET) The Indians recalled pitcher Danny Salazar from Triple-A Columbus Tuesday as expected, ahead of his scheduled start against the Twins.
The Indians announced Salazar would be making this start days ago, so this move simply gets him on the official roster prior to the start.

(7/20/14) Terry Francona has expressed encouragement over the recent progress of fireballing right-hander Danny Salazar in anticipation of a Tuesday start in Minnesota. He will be called up by the Indians for that outing.
"From all the scouts that have seen him, he's a lot closer to the Danny that got called up last year than the one we saw earlier in the year," Francona told MLB.com.
Salazar, who could assume a permanent spot in the rotation with a strong performance given the struggles of fellow starters such as Josh Tomlin, was lights-out in 2013 and even earned a playoff game start. But he struggled mightily to start this season before fanning 48 in his last 36 innings and compiling a 3.00 in his last six starts for Triple-A Columbus.
|T.J. House, Danny Salazar set to open series against Twins |
|by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com|
(7/20/14) What was expected is now official: Left-hander T.J. House and 2013 standout Danny Salazar will be promoted by the Indians for starts Monday and Tuesday, respectively, in Minnesota.
House proved inconsistent with Cleveland earlier in the year and owned a 4.40 ERA before his demotion to Triple-A Columbus. Salazar regressed this season before a demotion to the same team. He has performed well recently, spurring the impending call-up. He has given up just eight runs in his last 31 innings with 39 strikeouts.
|Danny Salazar could get a start Tuesday |

(7/17/14) Indians pitcher Danny Salazar could return to the majors Tuesday, according to the Cleveland Plain Dealer.
Nothing has been made official just yet, but there's speculation Salazar will get the call. He started in the minors Thursday, and would be in line for a Tuesday start. The club hasn't announced its rotation following the first series, and there's uncertainly about who will open in the rotation to begin the second half. In nine minor-league starts, Salazar has posted a 4.50 ERA.
|Danny Salazar deserves to be on your radar again |
|by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer|
(7/9/14) The latest for Danny Salazar isn't the greatest as far as Fantasy owners are concerned. The enigmatic right-hander won't be making his return to the big leagues Saturday against the White Sox after all.
Of course, the only reason anyone held out hope for a return is the way he's pitched recently. His overall numbers at Triple-A Columbus aren't so impressive, but he has struck out 34 in 24 1/3 innings over his last four starts, prompting Senior Director of Scouting Operations John Mirabelli to say, in the words of manager Terry Francona, "he looked like he did for us last year," according to the Cleveland Plain Dealer.
How Salazar looked for the Indians last year made him a popular mid-round sleeper on Draft Day this year, and nobody really doubted he could get back to that. He had some physical issues early in the year that compromised his velocity, but if he's back to 100 percent, he could be an impact player down the stretch.
If you're looking for a minor-league pitcher to stash, Salazar might be a better choice than Andrew Heaney or Jimmy Nelson.
|Having put up gaudy numbers in the first half of 2013 at Double-A Akron and Triple-A Columbus, Danny Salazar gave Fantasy owners a sneak peek at his potential with a spectacular July spot start for the Indians against the Blue Jays. Less than a month later, Salazar was back in the big leagues, and he stayed in the Indians' rotation through the end of the season. Three years removed from Tommy John surgery, the organization continued to be cautious with Salazar's innings, but despite several brief outings, he managed to provide owners with strikeouts (65 in 52 innings) to go along with a 3.12 ERA and 1.13 WHIP. He performed so well down the stretch that manager Terry Francona entrusted Salazar with the start in the Indians' Wild Card game appearance. Salazar is certain to be a part of Cleveland rotation in 2014, and given the off-the-charts 11.3 K/9 ratio and 16 percent swinging strike rate he displayed as a rookie, he should be coveted in standard mixed leagues as a mid-to-late round pick.
