Indians SP Danny Salazar getting comfortable throwing curveball

by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(4/30/15) Indians starting pitcher Danny Salazar has been pretty effective since joining the major-league rotation this season and is finally starting to show the potential folks have been talking about for years. 

Salazar, who is 3-0 with a 3.32 ERA and 28 strikeouts in 19 innings, still has an electric fastball and his split-change is becoming a pitch he relies on more often. However, the one pitch that seems to be making a huge difference for the right-hander is his curveball, which is fairly new to his repertoire.

"I'm trying to feel comfortable with it," Salazar said of the curveball, per MLB.com. "Sometimes it's going to be there, sometimes it's not going to be there. It's a new pitch that I'm trying out right now and if I feel like it's working, I'm going to use it."

Salazar has mostly relied on his fastball during his career. However, he is working on making his secondary pitches more reliable. In Wednesday's start against the Royals, he used his fastball less than half the time.

"In the first inning, we started throwing them a bunch of fastballs," catcher Roberto Perez said. "And that team over there is a really good team -- they're really aggressive. They started hitting that fastball and we got to the dugout and I said, 'Hey, you know what, we've got to pitch backwards. We've got to throw soft early and finish them hard.'"

Indians' Danny Salazar strikes out seven in win vs. Royals

by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(4/29/15) Indians pitcher Danny Salazar earned his third win in as many starts Wednesday, giving up four earned runs on six hits in six innings while striking out seven and walking none in his team's 7-5 victory over the Royals.

Salazar (3-0) failed to deliver a quality start for the first time this season and couldn't continue to produce double-digit strikeouts but did avoid issuing a walk for the first time in his three outings. He surrendered a pair of runs on a first-inning single and two more runs on a sixth-inning home run to give up the lead, but his offense was able to pick up three runs of its own in the bottom half of the sixth to take the lead for good.

Salazar owns a 3.32 ERA and 28:5 K:BB ratio in 19 innings through three starts. He's scheduled to face the Royals again Monday.

Indians' Salazar beans Royals' Escobar in face with pitch

by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com
(4/29/15) Indians pitcher Danny Salazar beaned Royals shortstop Alcides Escobar in the face with a 96 mph fastball, resulting in a scary moment in Wednesday evening's game between the two teams. 

Escobar was able to stand and walk off the field under his own power. According to the Kansas City Star, Salazar looked "stricken" after hitting Escobar with the pitch, indicating it was definitely an accident. 

Escobar exited the game and Christian Colon came in to pinch-run. 

Escobar finished the game 1 for 2 with a run. 

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.

Indians starter Danny Salazar fans 10 on Saturday to collect first win

by Ted Leshinski | Staff Writer
(4/18/15) Indians starter Danny Salazar (1-0) fanned 10 batters, matching a career high, on Saturday, giving up two runs on six hits in six innings against the Twins to collect his first win of the season 

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

"It's awesome," said Salazar, who struck out eight of his first 12 batters. "I have things to prove. I've been working."

Catcher Kurt Suzuki reached Salazar for a sole home run.

Salazar shoots for win No. 2 on Friday in Detoit.

"First thing, you want to win the game," Indians manager Terry Francona said about Salazar's performance. "The next thing now is wanting him to follow it up."
