Indians' Danny Salazar strikes out career-high 11 in win Friday
|by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com|
|(4/24/15) Indians starting pitcher Danny Salazar had one of the finest starts of his MLB career, as he struck out a career-high 11 during a 13-1 rout Friday at Detroit. The right-hander allowed one run on six hits and three walks in seven innings.
Salazar (2-0) ran into some trouble in the first inning, as he loaded the bases on a walk, single and hit batter. However, he escaped the jam unscathed.
He did allowed a solo home run to Nick Castellanos in the second inning, but it was one of few blemishes for the righty on Friday. He has a 2.08 ERA through two starts.
"Danny's always had maybe some of the best stuff on our staff," manager Terry Francona said, per Cleveland.com. "There's just some inconsistencies that we talked about. He had a really good week this week. Now, we'll challenge him again tomorrow, because we need him to have about another 30 [good starts]. That's the object. When you start doing that, with his stuff, that's when you have a chance to be really good."
His previous high in strikeouts was 10, which he accomplished three times. His next scheduled start is for Wednesday vs. Kansas City.

Salazar was recalled from Triple-A Columbus to make Saturday's start.

Indians officially recall Danny Salazar for Saturday's start
|by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com|
|(4/18/15) The Indians recalled Saturday's starter Danny Salazar from Triple-A Columbus and optioned right-hander Austin Adams to Columbus, per the team's official website.
Salazar had a promising MLB debut in 2013, then struggled with consistency last year. He was sent down after posting an 8.18 ERA in spring training this year. He registered a 4.25 ERA over 110 innings for the Indians in 2014.
Danny Salazar in, Zach McAllister out of Indians rotation
|by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com|
|(4/17/15) The Saturday start of Indians right-hander Danny Salazar in Minnesota won't be a one-and-done. He is destined to stay in the rotation while Zach McAllister heads to the bullpen, per the Cleveland Plain Dealer.
Salazar pitched horribly in spring training despite hitting 95 mph consistently. But he hurled six shutout innings with seven strikeouts in his first start at Triple-A Columbus before being recalled.
"I have to show them that I've been working hard," Salazar said, per MLB.com. "I have to prove it."
McAllister has struggled to find the plate with anything but his fastball as a starter. He is considered better suited to come out of the bullpen, where his 97 mph fastball can be most effectively utilized.
"I think Zach's going to be a starter in the Major Leagues," Indians manager Terry Francona said. "But right now, I think he can really help us as a weapon in the bullpen."

House will close out the series against Trevor May, per MLB.com.

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.
