|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.

(7/9/14) Indians starting pitcher Danny Salazar was passed over for a chance to rejoin the major-league rotation Saturday against the White Sox, as the team chose to go with Zach McAllister to replace Justin Masterson (knee).
However, Salazar appears to be a candidate to pitch in a doubleheader at Detroit July 19, according to The Chronicle-Telegram.
Salazar is 3-5 with a 4.93 ERA in eight starts since being demoted to Triple-A Columbus in late May. He has 53 strikeouts in 42 innings.

(7/8/14) Indians pitcher Zach McAllister and Danny Salazar are the two candidates to replace the injured Justin Masterson in the rotation starting Saturday, the Cleveland Plain Dealer reports.
McAllister posted a 5.89 ERA and 43:19 K:BB ratio in 10 starts in April and May before going on the disabled list with a back injury. He was activated in mid-June but had his first scheduled start rained out before being sent to Triple-A Columbus, where he's 5-0 with a 2.23 ERA and 34:7 K:BB ratio in 36 1/3 innings over six starts, which includes his rehab assignment.
Salazar burned bright during the second half of 2013 but struggled early this season, going 1-4 with a 5.53 ERA and 47:17 K:BB ratio in 40 2/3 innings over eight starts before being sent down to Columbus. He's 3-5 with a medicore 4.93 ERA and an excellent 53:17 K:BB ratio in 42 innings over eight Triple-A starts, but he's looked better in recent outings.
|Danny Salazar dealing with minor triceps, elbow issues |
|by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com|
(6/4/14) Indians pitcher Danny Salazar is dealing with a couple of injuries at Triple-A Columbus, though manager Terry Francona told MLB.com Wednesday he likely would have pitched through them at the major-league level.
"If he was with [the Indians], he would've pitched," Francona said. "Missing one start while he can work on some mechanical things, flush that out of there, just so it doesn't become a nuisance. It's nothing structural."
Salazar was placed on the disabled list with a triceps injury, and also has some inflammation in his elbow, though neither is considered a long term issue. Francona also said he does not believe Salazar's 7.11 ERA at Columbus is the result of the injury.
Salazar should miss just one turn through the rotation for Columbus.
|Danny Salazar placed on Triple-A DL |
|by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com|
(6/4/14) A triceps injury has landed struggling Indians minor league reliever Danny Salazar on the Triple-A disabled list.
Salazar has been a mess all season, including three starts with Columbus after his demotion. The right-hander who started the Indians' lone playoff game last season has given up 10 earned runs on 21 hits in 12 2/3 innings with the Clippers.
|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.
