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


by Ted Leshinski | Staff Writer
(4/18/2015) 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."


Indians officially recall Danny Salazar for Saturday's start


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(4/18/2015) 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
(4/17/2015) 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."


Indians will add Danny Salazar into weekend rotation


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(4/16/2015) The Indians announced their rotation plans for their three-game weekend series against the Twins starting on Friday. Corey Kluber will square off against Mike Pelfrey, followed by Danny Salazar, who will be recalled from the minors to face Phil Hughes on Saturday. Southpaw T.J. House will close out the series against Trevor May, per MLB.com.

Indians Danny Salazar has strong first start at Triple-A


by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com
(4/13/2015) Starting pitcher Danny Salazar showed that he might have figured things out and be ready for a return to the Indians later this season. 

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. 

In his first start for Triple-A Columbus, Salazar pitched six shutout innings, allowing four hits, striking out seven and walking none. He threw 57 strikes in 80 pitches. 

"My change was moving really good today," Salazar told the Columbus Dispatch. "It looked like the curveball. Guys in the dugout were saying, 'Nice curve,' and I was saying, 'No, it’s my change.' I felt really good." 


Salazar demoted; McAllister, House, Tomlin will compete for final spots


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(3/27/2015) The Indians have optioned right-hander Danny Salazar to Triple-A Columbus, just a day removed from a dreadful Cactus League outing, according to the Plain Dealer.

Salazar coughed up seven runs -- six earned -- on six hits and no walks while striking out six over 3 1/3 innings of work against the Reds. The 25-year-old posted a whopping 8.18 ERA through 11 innings this spring.

"I don't know. The stuff is definitely there. It's not there yet consistently, whether he's locating or following a pitch up with two pitches in a row," manager Terry Francona said after Salazar's outing on Thursday. "Again, we'll keep working at it -- that's for darn sure -- but the results weren't the kind of what we're looking for."

The demotion narrows Zach McAllister, T.J. House and Josh Tomlin down to the two final spots in the rotation. House and Tomlin have options, while McAllister is out of options and could be in line for one of those two spots, per the Plain Dealer.


Indians' Francona on Salazar: We wanted him to pitch better Thursday


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(3/26/2015) Indians rotation hopeful Danny Salazar was knocked around during Thursday's Cactus League, allowing a pair of home runs in a 13-2 defeat to Cincinnati. He allowed seven runs -- six earned -- on six hits and no walks while striking out six over 3 1/3 innings of work.

Manager Terry Francona was not pleased by Salazar's outing when he spoke to reporters after the game, per MLB.com.

"He started out, solo homer in the first and then another solo. And then, it kind of got away from him a little bit," Francona said. "I don't know. The stuff is definitely there. It's not there yet consistently, whether he's locating or following a pitch up with two pitches in a row. Again, we'll keep working at it -- that's for darn sure -- but the results weren't the kind of what we're looking for."

When asked, Francona said he will not let Salazar's rough outing impact his roster decision.

"I don't think we would ever make a decision on one start," Francona said. "I think that's where you set yourself up to make a mistake. Obviously, we wanted him to pitch better. I just don't think you can make decisions based on four innings in March. I don't think that's correct."


Indians pitcher Danny Salazar tosses four innings Saturday


by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(3/21/2015) Indians pitcher Danny Salazar was able to throw four innings Saturday against the Rockies, allowing one run on three hits with five strikeouts. Salazar threw 69 pitches with 44 of them going for strikes.

"I felt aggressive," said Salazar to MLB.com. "I was trying to be aggressive the entire time. ... It's really important [for me to win a job]. I really want to help the team win. I don't want to play for me. I want to play for the team. Everything I do is going to be for them."

Manager Terry Francona said it was an OK outing by his standards.

"I'd say more good than not," Francona said. "I think at times he still leaves that fastball up, but you can see his intent is to get it down. He drove some good ones down. I thought off of that, his offspeed was pretty effective. So, even when he was up, he had enough on his offspeed with deception. We're still shooting for more consistency down, but you can see he's trying. He's getting there."


Indians' Danny Salazar gives up two runs in debut


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(3/6/2015) Indians pitcher Danny Salazar allowed two runs in his spring debut on Friday.

Salazar gave up two runs on three hits over two innings of work. He struck out four and walked one during the outing. Despite the shaky outing, manager Terry Francona came away impressed

"He made a couple mistakes along the way, but I thought he threw the ball really well," he said. "In the season, we can probably nitpick. But, in Spring Training for a first outing, I thought the ball came out of his hand really well and I thought he tried to drive it down with more intent. That's what he needs to do."

The 25-year-old Salazar is expected to compete for a spot in the team's rotation this spring. He posted a 4.25 ERA over 110 innings last season. 


Danny Salazar issues apology to family, teammates, Indians


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(3/6/2015) Indians pitcher Danny Salazar declined to talk about his offseason sexual assault investigation. Instead, he told reporters that he apologized to his family, teammates and the Indians' organization.

"I will talk about it, but at another time," Salazar said on Friday, per the Northeast Ohio Media Group.

Salazar was investigated and had no charges filed against him in relation to a sexual assault investigation stemming from a January incident at a Cleveland club. Salazar is set to enter his third major league season. He posted a 4.25 ERA in 2014.


Indians' Francona comfortable with battle for No. 5 in starting rotation


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(3/3/2015) With Josh Tomlin, T.J. House, Danny Salazar, Shaun Marcum, Bruce Chen and Zach McAllister all competing for the final spot of the Indians' rotation, manager Terry Francona told reporters that a few players may end up going to Triple-A or moved to the bullpen once camp breaks, per the Plain Dealer.

"At the moment, we're comfortable," Francona said. "We've all seen where you look up a month later and things happen. The one thing you don't ever want to have happen is have your season derailed because guys go down. You try to come to camp with not only who you think are going to be your five, but you have to have some depth. We have some guys who will probably end up going to Triple-A. Maybe a guy or two ends up in the bullpen. You never know."

by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com

Police spokeswoman Jennifer Ciaccia told the Cleveland Plain Dealer that after an investigation into what occurred there on Jan. 22, Salazar will not be charged. This was in response to a claim made at a local hospital during the early morning on Jan. 23.

"Detectives presented the case involving rape allegations with the suspect being Danny Salazar to the city prosecutor's office today and no charges were issued against Mr. Salazar," Ciacca said. 

It was previously reported that Salazar was under investigation for a possible sexual assault earlier Wednesday morning.

The Indians issued a statement shortly after the news broke.

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.
