Danny Salazar won't pitch season finale


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(9/27/2014) Indians pitcher Danny Salazar will not pitch in the season finale Sunday afternoon against the Rays. Instead, T.J. House will start in his place because the team had decided he's thrown enough innings, according to the Plain Dealer.

Salazar logged 52 innings in his rookie season. He will end his 2014 campaign with a 4.25 ERA and 120:35 K:BB ratio in 110 innings.


Danny Salazar surrenders five runs in loss vs. Royals


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

Salazar (6-8) watched two runs score in the fourth inning before the Royals tacked on three more in the fifth. The pitcher has been prone to mix in ugly lines with excellent outings, and he now owns a 4.25 ERA and 120:35 K:BB ratio in 110 innings after his final scheduled start of the season.


Danny Salazar settles for no-decision


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(9/19/2014) Indians pitcher Danny Salazar wasn't a factor into the decision despite posting a quality start Thursday night in Houston. He allowed one run on five hits and one walk while striking out nine over 7 1/3 innings of work.

Over his last two starts covering 13 innings, Salazar has allowed four earned runs. He owns a 4.02 ERA and a 1.34 WHIP over 19 starts (105 1/3 innings). His next start will come Tuesday at home against Kansas City.

by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(9/13/2014) Indians pitcher Danny Salazar was unable to make it past the sixth inning in a no-decision against the Tigers in Detroit Saturday night, improving to 7-7 on the year. He allowed three runs on six hits and one walk while striking out seven over 5 2/3 innings of a 5-4 defeat.

Over his last two starts covering 10 1/3 innings, Salazar has allowed nine earned runs. He owns a 4.22 ERA and a 1.38 WHIP over 18 starts (98 innings). His next start will come Friday at Minnesota.

Danny Salazar lit up by Angels


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(9/8/2014) Indians pitcher Danny Salazar was knocked out after 4 2/3 innings Monday in a 12-3 home loss to the Angels. Salazar (6-7) served up two home runs and six earned runs on eight hits, boosting his ERA to 4.19. He struck out four, walked two and threw 91 pitches.

It was a stark turnaround for Salazar, who had allowed one earned run over his previous three starts covering 20 innings. He'll take on the Tigers in Detroit on Saturday.


Danny Salazar goes the distance against Detroit


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(9/3/2014) Indians pitcher Danny Salazar managed to go the distance Wednesday against the Tigers.

Salazar gave up eight hits over nine scoreless innings. He struck out nine and did not issue any walks during the outing. Despite the strong outing, Salazar never challenged for a no-hitter. He gave up a single against the first batter he faced before erasing that runner with a double play. Salazar would nearly get himself in trouble in the fourth inning, giving up two straight singles with one out, but managed to work out of it. Despite a high pitch count, the team opted to leave Salazar in for the final inning. After giving up a single with one out, Salazar struck out the last two batters he faced to finish the game. He threw 118 pitches. 

With the win, Salazar improved to 6-6. He’ll take on the Angels in his next start. 


Danny Salazar cruises past Royals despite rain delay


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(8/30/2014) Indians starting pitcher Danny Salazar had his start interrupted by a rain delay, but still came away with a win Friday night against the Royals in Kansas City, improving to 5-6 on the year. The right-hander permitted four hits and two walks while striking out three over five scoreless innings of work before a rain delay ended his night prematurely.

Over his last three starts covering 16 innings, Salazar has permitted three earned runs. He owns a 4.23 ERA and a 1.40 WHIP over 15 starts (78 2/3 innings). He will make his next start Wednesday vs. Detroit.

Danny Salazar settles for no decision


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(8/23/2014) Indians pitcher Danny Salazar turned in a solid start Saturday against the Astros.

Salazar gave up two runs, one earned, on three hits over six innings. He struck out seven and walked two. Both runs came in the third inning. Salazar put one man on with a single, and put another on via the walk. With two outs, Jose Altuve hit a run-scoring single. The second run wound up crossing the plate on a throwing error by Chris Dickerson. Only one run was charged to Salazar.

Salazar left with the game tied, earning a no-decision. He’ll take on the Royals in his next start. 


Danny Salazar pitches well in loss Sunday


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(8/17/2014) Indians starting pitcher Danny Salazar pitched well in his return to the majors Sunday against the Orioles. Unfortunately, he ended up with the loss, as he didn't get much run support in a 4-1 defeat.

Salazar (4-6) was in control early, as he retired the first six batters he faced, which included two strikeouts. He tossed five scoreless innings and carried a 1-0 lead into the sixth inning before running into some trouble.

Steve Pearce led off the sixth with a double and Salazar was then lifted after hitting Adam Jones with a pitch. Unfortunately, both runners would score and both runs were charged to Salazar, who allowed four hits and one walk in five-plus innings. He struck out four.

Salazar lost his second straight start after winning his previous three. If he remains in the rotation, he should be back on the hill Saturday against Houston.


Danny Salazar set to start Sunday


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(8/15/2014) The Indians will recall pitcher Danny Salazar to start Sunday against the Orioles, manager Terry Francona announced Friday.

Salazar was sent down last week to clear a spot on the roster, and it is not clear how long he is expected to stay with the team this time around. Francona did note that pitcher T.J. House is being shifted to a bullpen role "temporarily."

Salazar has a 4.88 ERA in 62 2/3 innings over the course of his 12 starts in the majors this season.  


Indians option Danny Salazar, recall Chen-Chang Lee


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(8/6/2014) The Indians optioned pitcher Danny Salazar to Triple-A Columbus after his start Tuesday and recalled pitcher Chen-Chang Lee.

The team obviously wants him to get more work on a lower-pressure stage after he gave up five runs in four innings Tuesday (all on two home runs). He had put together three solid starts before Wednesday's dud. Lee has posted a 4.26 ERA and 13:4 K:BB ratio in 12 2/3 innings.


Danny Salazar gives up five runs in four innings vs. Reds


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(8/6/2014) Indians pitcher Danny Salazar took a loss Wednesday, surrendering five earned runs on five hits in four innings and striking out five in his team's 8-3 defeat against the Reds.

Salazar (4-5) had won each of his three starts since returning to the Indians, but he had trouble keeping the ball in the park with runners on base Wednesday. He first served up a three-run home run with two outs in the second, then gave up a two-run home run with two outs in the fourth. Salazar owns a 4.88 ERA and 69:23 K:BB ratio in 62 2/3 innings. He's scheduled to face the Diamondbacks Tuesday.


Danny Salazar slides back to .500


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(8/1/2014) Indians pitcher Danny Salazar worked another quality start for the win Friday night at home against the Rangers, improving to 4-4 on the year. The right-hander permitted one unearned run on four hits and three walks while striking out four over six innings of a 12-2 victory.

Salazar has allowed one unearned run or fewer in two of his last three starts . He owns a 4.45 ERA and a 1.52 WHIP over 11 starts (58 2/3 innings). He will make his next start Wednesday at Cincinnati.

Indians shuffle rotation for weekend series against Rangers


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(7/30/2014) The Indians have altered their rotation for the weekend series against visiting Texas. The trade of Justin Masterson, who was slated to pitch Friday, has pushed Danny Salazar into the role that night.

Following Salazar to the mound will be left-hander T.J. House on Saturday and Trevor Bauer on Sunday. House had been sent down to Triple-A Columbus last week after managing just three quality starts in nine outings and compiling a 4.50 ERA.


Danny Salazar fans seven in win over Royals


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(7/27/2014) Indians pitcher Danny Salazar put together a quality start Sunday afternoon against the Royals, improving to 3-4 on the year. The right-hander yielded three runs on seven hits and no walks while striking out seven over seven innings of a 10-3 victory.

Salazar won back-to-back starts for the first time this season. He owns a 4.96 ERA and a 1.56 WHIP over 10 starts (52 2/3 innings). He will make his next start Friday at home against Texas.

Danny Salazar's return a mixed bag


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(7/23/2014) Remember those reports coming out of Triple-A Columbus about Danny Salazar being back to form and as good as he was last year? After his first start back in the majors Thursday, the jury's still out.

He didn't pitch poorly, but any transformation he may have undergone in his 10 starts at Columbus wasn't immediately evident in the results or on the radar gun. He still struggled with his command, walking three in an inefficient five innings, and he still averaged 1-2 mph less on his fastball than he did for most of his stay last year.

And it's not like the results were radically different at Triple-A. His strikeout rate did improve during his stay there, but he still issued 14 walks in 17 2/3 innings over his final three starts. The red flags remained even amid the glowing reports.

So ... were they all a bunch of hooey? Hard to say. The talent is evident. Even with reduced velocity, Salazar is among the hardest throwers in the game and should at least deliver a high strikeout rate. But with his control issues, will he accumulate enough innings for it to matter in Fantasy?

I already ranked him a conservative 77th at starting pitcher before this start, so I didn't feel the need to move him in response. In most leagues, he's worth owning, but in a what-do-you-have-to-lose sort of way.


Danny Salazar strikes out six in win vs. Twins Tuesday


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(7/22/2014) Indians pitcher Danny Salazar enjoyed a triumphant return to the rotation Tuesday, giving up just one earned run on six hits and three walks in five innings and striking out six to pick up a win in his team's 8-2 victory over the Twins.

Salazar (2-4) was making his first major-league start since May 15 after being sent down to Triple-A to try and improve his performance. Though he struggled with his control in the outing, he did a good job limiting the damage of his wildness. Salazar owns a 5.12 ERA and 53:20 K:BB ratio in 45 2/3 innings. He's scheduled to face the Royals Sunday.


Danny Salazar gets the call for start Tuesday


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(7/22/2014) 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. 


Terry Francona encouraged by Danny Salazar


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(7/20/2014) 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
(7/20/2014) 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


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(7/17/2014) 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
(7/9/2014) 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.


Danny Salazar passed over for start Saturday vs. White Sox


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(7/9/2014) 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.


Zach McAllister, Danny Salazar candidates to start Saturday


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(7/8/2014) 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
(6/4/2014) 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.
