Indians' Callaway: Danny Salazar should be fine for next start
|by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com|
|(1:35 pm ET) Indians starting pitcher Danny Salazar's finger was tender Wednesday morning after sustaining a small cut near one of his fingernails Tuesday against the Rangers, pitching coach Mickey Callaway said, per MLB.com.
However, it doesn't appear the injury will keep Salazar from making his next start.
"We're going to take a day off from throwing today, get back to his bullpen [on Thursday]," Callaway said. "[We'll] probably do something like all fastballs. It really bothers him on his offspeed pitches. He really kind of yanks on that part of the finger. He should be fine for his next start."
Salazar is slated to make his next start Sunday at Seattle.
Indians' Danny Salazar leaves with finger problem in no-decision
|by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com|
|(12:33 am ET) Indians starter Danny Salazar was forced to leave Tuesday's game against Seattle with a finger issue.
Salazar allowed three runs on six hits in 5 2/3 innings. He suffered a cut nail or blister on the middle finger of his right hand in the fifth inning, while throwing a hanging slider that was hit for a three-run homer, per Cleveland.com.
"I wanted to clean it out," Salazar said. "It was bleeding there. I was feeling it, but I was throwing the ball well."
Salazar walked three and struck out six. Assuming the finger doesn't change his schedule, he pitches next Sunday, at Seattle.
Indians' Danny Salazar strikes out eight in win vs. White Sox
|by R.J. White | CBSSports.com|
|(5/21/15) Indians pitcher Danny Salazar earned a win on Thursday, giving up just five hits and three walks in six scoreless innings while striking out eight in his team's 5-2 victory over the White Sox.
Salazar (5-1) managed to avoid serving up a home run for the first time this season in Thursday's win, as the White Sox managed just one extra-base hit (a double) during his six innings of work. He's now managed to strike out an average of one batter per inning or better in six of his seven starts.
"He had such a good fastball that when he needed it, he went to it, and he didn't nurse it in there," manager Terry Francona said, per MLB.com. "He attacked when he needed to and he ended up giving us six.
Salazar owns a 3.50 ERA and 60:9 K:BB ratio in 43 2/3 innings. He's slated to face the Rangers at home on Tuesday.
Indians SP Danny Salazar takes no-decision in 4 2/3 shaky innings
|by Ted Leshinski | Staff Writer|
|(5/16/15) Indians starter Danny Salazar gave up seven runs (six earned) on nine hits in 4 2/3 innings Saturday to take a no-decision against the Rangers.
Salazar was victimized by two home runs in the outing -- a second-inning solo shot by Tommy Field and a third-inning solo blast from Shin-Soo Choo.
Salazar was coming off a great performance in his last start, giving up one run in seven innings for a win against the Twins.
Salazar will return to the mound for his next start Thursday in Chicago against the White Sox.

|(5/10/15) Indians starter Danny Salazar improved to 4-1 on Sunday, with a win over Minnesota.
Salazar allowed one hit, a solo home run to lead off the game, over seven innings. He struck out 11--half the batters he faced--and didn't walk a batter as he retired 21 straight. Salazar threw 71 strikes in 102 pitches.
"He kind of cruised," Twins manager Paul Molitor said. "We just couldn't generate anything."
Salazar's next start is scheduled for Saturday, at Texas.

2015 Draft Prep: Spring position battles
From Rusney Castillo and Mookie Betts to an interesting Blue Jays rotation question, spring training always provides interesting position battles. Our Scott White takes a look at those most pressing in Fantasy.
|2014 summary: The excitement generated by Danny Salazar's promising 2013 debut did not last for long once the 2014 season started. The 24-year-old had trouble throwing strikes and getting to the sixth inning, and in mid-May, the Indians sent him to Triple-A Columbus. When he returned after the All-Star break, Salazar still had some efficiency issues, but he was much closer to being the pitcher he was as a rookie. Over 12 starts, he went 5-4 with a 3.50 ERA, 1.24 WHIP and 73 strikeouts in 69 1/3 innings.|
Playing time status: The Indians have pitching depth, but with Gavin Floyd injuring his elbow again this spring, Salazar looks like a strong bet to claim a rotation spot. Still, given his inability to pitch deep into games, Fantasy owners shouldn't count on him to be a major source of innings.
2015 outlook: After last season's inconsistencies, it's easy to imagine Salazar anywhere from the All-Star Game to Triple-A. His second-half resurgence offers hope that he'll be closer to being an All-Star, and he needs to be drafted sometime in the later rounds in standard mixed leagues. If he secures a rotation spot, Salazar is a reasonable pick in the middle rounds.
