Salazar has allowed three homers and 10 runs over his last two starts. His ERA has ballooned from 3.18 to 7.71 over that span. He'll be searching for his first win of the season Tuesday against Kansas City.

Salazar (0-1) surrendered a solo home run to Jose Abreu in the second, a two-run home run to Alexei Ramirez and a run-scoring single to Adam Eaton in third.

Danny Salazar pitches well after slow start


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(4/4/2014) Indians starting pitcher Danny Salazar wasn't at the top of his game in season debut Friday against the Twins, but he pitched well enough to keep the team in the game in a 7-2 win.

Salazar started off slow, as the Indians scored two runs in the first inning on two hits, including a home run. He settled down considerably from then on, ultimately finishing with 4 2/3 scoreless innings.

Salazar settled for a no-decision, as the offense didn't really wake up until he left the game. He was charged with two runs on seven hits and three walks, while striking out four batters in 5 2/3 innings, and throwing 55 of 99 pitches for strikes.

Salazar pitched well in 10 starts as a rookie, posting a 3.12 ERA. His next start is set for Wednesday against the Padres.

by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

"I'm very excited for it," Salazar said with a smile. "I wasn't expecting that, really. It took me by surprise."

The Indians have limited Salazar's innings this spring, leading to speculation that he would be slotted in the No. 5 role and not given a start until April 8 as a result. He is scheduled to work five innings against the University of San Diego Saturday in his final preparation for the regular season.

by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

Carrasco is battling Josh Tomlin and perhaps Aaron Harang for the fifth spot in the rotation. Salazar is set, but his innings have been limited this spring to keep him stronger for later in the season.


Danny Salazar saving his bullets for the regular season


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(3/16/2014) Indians pitcher Danny Salazar is saving his bullets for the regular season, according to the Cleveland Plain Dealer

Salazar hit 98 mph during a minor-league game Friday, but said he's saving the rest of his velocity for the regular season. "I’ve got to save my bullets," Salazar said. The team has been cautious with the 24-year-old. Salazar missed most of 2011 and 2012 due to Tommy John surgery, but broke out in 2013. Salazar said he feels strong this spring.

Salazar posted a 3.12 ERA in 52 innings last year.


Danny Salazar allows one run in spring debut Monday


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(3/10/2014) Making his spring debut Monday, Indians pitcher Danny Salazar surrendered one earned run on two hits and two walks while striking out two in 1 2/3 innings in his team's 8-3 loss to the Angels.

Saazar looked great in his intrasquad appearance Friday and had his start pushed up to Monday after originally being scheduled to make his debut Tuesday. He is coming off a breakout end-of-season performance for the Indians after going 2-3 with a 3.12 ERA and 65:15 K:BB ratio in 52 innings in 2013.


Danny Salazar set to make first spring start Monday


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(3/8/2014) The Indians appear ready to unveil the 2014 version of 24-year-old right-hander Danny Salazar. After he threw one strong inning in an intrasquad game on Friday, he has been listed as the starter for the exhibition clash Monday against the Angels, per the Cleveland Plain Dealer. He had originally been scheduled to pitch on Tuesday.

Salazar, whose fastball peaked at 96 miles an hour in his short Friday stint, proved so impressive late in 2013 that he earned the start in the Wild Card loss to Tampa Bay. He fanned 65 in 52 innings last season and managed a 3.12 ERA.


Danny Salazar fans three of six batters in intrasquad game


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(3/7/2014) Indians promising right-hander Danny Salazar finally made his spring training debut Friday by throwing to six batters in an intrasquad game. He allowed an unearned run and struck out three. His fastball topped out at 96 mph, but threw consistently at 93, per MLB.com.

The team has taken it easy on Salazar, who will turn 24 years old on Tuesday. He could start the season as the fifth starter to give him more time to prepare.


Indians taking it slow with Danny Salazar


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(3/5/2014) Indians pitcher Danny Salazar is expected to see his first spring action Friday by throwing one inning in an intrasquad game, the Cleveland Plain Dealer reports.

Salazar is behind the other starting pitchers and may not be ready for the start of the season, though he isn't dealing with an injury. He could serve as the No. 5 starter to give him extra time to prepare or even stay behind in Arizona when the regular season starts.

"We have every different scenario thought out, but on March 5, it doesn’t make sense (to go into it)," manager Terry Francona said. "It just doesn’t make sense."

Salazar threw a career-high 145 innings last season. He underwent Tommy John surgery back in 2010.


Danny Salazar throws live batting practice


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(3/1/2014) Indians pitcher Danny Salazar tossed off a mound in live batting practice Saturday as expected, as he continues to work his way into game shape.

"He's actually done really well," manager Terry Francona told MLB.com Saturday. "He's bouncing back and he's doing well. It's just being a week later, it's not the end of the world. It sets up the whole year, giving the guy a good base, rather than just for the sake of the schedule having the guy say he can throw the first Spring Training game. I never quite understood that."

Salazar is not dealing with any particular injury, but they also want to make sure he isn't wasting any innings when he doesn't need to. He pitched 145 innings between Triple-A and the majors last year, so they want him available deep into the season without issue.

"We want him to pitch with the tank full," Francona said. "That's the best way I can put it. I think we have a responsibility when guys show up to assess where they are. ... We know where they are and we talk to them and there's different ways to get to the season for everybody."

Salazar is expected to open the season in the rotation, after posting a 3.12 ERA in 10 starts last year, with 65 strikeouts and only 15 walks in 52 innings. He will likely do two or three more workouts before being seen in a game. 


Danny Salazar to throw live batting practice Saturday


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(2/27/2014) Indians pitcher Danny Salazar will throw his first batting practice session Saturday, according to MLB.com.

The club has been cautious with Salazar thus far this spring. He's had injury issues in the past, but broke through last season. In 52 innings last season, Salazar posted a 3.12 ERA. 


GM excited about Danny Salazar


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(2/23/2014) Indians general manager Chris Antonetti said the team is "excited" to see what Danny Salazar can do in the rotation, according to MLB Network Radio.

Salazar received 52 innings with the club last season, and performed well. He was on strict pitch counts during the year, which limited his upside. Antonetti said the club is happy with what Salazar was able to do in Double-A and Triple-A last season, and believes in his talent. Salazar is expected to open the year in the team's rotation. It's unclear whether the team will limit his workload.

Salazar posted a 3.12 ERA last season.


Indians taking cautious approach with Danny Salazar


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(2/23/2014) The Indians are taking a cautious approach with pitcher Danny Salazar, according to MLB.com.

Salazar has not thrown batting practice yet, but is not dealing with an injury. The team wants to take caution with Salazar, as he dealt with injuries in 2011 and 2012. He was able to return and pitch 52 innings in the majors.


Indians won't impose limits on Danny Salazar


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(2/14/2014) The Indians have no plans to limit pitcher Danny Salazar this season, according to MLB.com.

Salazar is expected to play a big role in the team's rotation. Though his innings have been somewhat limited in the minors due to injuries, the club isn't going to be concerned about that this year. Salazar won't have to worry about pitch counts or innings totals. "I'm not going to be looking at the scoreboard to see how many pitches I've got," Salazar said.

Manager Terry Francona said he believed the restrictions impated Salazar last season. "There were a lot of games he saw me coming down there, and you could see him like, 'God, I'm pitching so well.' He understood it, but I dont think he liked it," Francona said. 

Salazar posted a 3.12 ERA in 52 innings last season. 


Danny Salazer working hard to stay in the majors


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(1/29/2014) Indians starting pitcher Danny Salazar is already hard at work looking to improve off his rookie season, according to MLB.com.

Salazar arrived at the team's spring complex in Arizona on Jan. 12 to work on keeping his fastball down in the zone and pitching to the corners of the strike zone more often.

"Once you're in Triple-A and you come to the big leagues, you don't want to go back down, because everything is better up here," Salazar said. "So I just told myself I need to work harder to stay here."


Danny Salazar delivers heat in Wild Card loss


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(10/3/2013) Indians pitcher Danny Salazar surrendered three earned runs on four hits and two walks while striking out four in four innings, taking the loss as the Indians fell to the Rays 4-0 in Wednesday's Wild Card game.

Salazar touched 100 mph once each in the first, second and third innings and looked dominant until a third-inning home run from Delmon Young. The Rays then tacked on two more in the fourth inning, and Salazar walked the leadoff man in the fifth before being removed.

Salazar posted an 11.3 K/9 rate during the regular season, striking out 65 batters in just 52 innings. He also struck out 129 batters in 93 innings in the minors this season, giving him a total of 194 strikeouts in 145 innings over all levels in 2013 before Wednesday's Wild Card performance.

by Al Melchior | Data Analyst
(9/29/2013) According to the Cleveland Plain-Dealer, the Indians would call upon Danny Salazar to be their starting pitcher in a tiebreaker game on Monday, should one be necessary.

Danny Salazar wins as he's spiked


by Jeff Lippman | CBSSports.com
(9/25/2013) Indians young starter Danny Salazar took the ball for the final time in the regular season Wednesday at home against Chicago. He left the game with an injury.

Salazar appeared to be spiked at first base while covering the bag in the sixth inning. He left after getting one out in the inning following the injury. Salazar earned the win on the start as he improved to 2-3 on the season for the Indians. He allowed two runs on six hits and a walk over 5 1/3 innings before leaving.

Salazar struck out eight batters and allowed a solo homer in the second. He threw 89 pitches before leaving the game and his ERA finishes at 3.12 for the Tribe. Cleveland needs to keep winning if Salazar is to make an appearance in the playoffs. Otherwise, his season is over and it was an excellent year for the 23-year-old.

Indians remove restricted pitch count on Danny Salazar


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(9/19/2013) The Indians have removed pitch-count restrictions from pitcher Danny Salazar for his final regular-season start, the Cleveland Plain Dealer reports. Salazar, who has been limited to 70-80 pitches per start, threw 82 pitches in six innings Wednesday.

"I think our organization has done a really good job with Danny this year while he was in the minor leagues," manager Terry Francona told the Plain Dealer. "They kept an eye on pitch count, innings, amount of stressful innings. We've got to a point in the year where we've actually stretched him back out. He looks strong, but we're not going to let him go out there and just flail away at 130 pitches."

Salazar has excelled while pitching under the restricted pitch count, posting a 3.09 ERA, 1.11 WHIP and 57:14 in just 46 2/3 innings while averaging slightly more than 81 pitches per start, but Wednesday's 82-pitch start was his highest pitch count since throwing 103 pitches on Aug. 7.


Danny Salazar suffers losing decision


by Jeff Lippman | CBSSports.com
(9/18/2013) Indians starting pitcher Danny Salazar took the mound in Kansas City Wednesday night for a start against the Royals. Salazar had a so-so performance and ended up taking a losing decision.

Salazar gave up four earned runs on six hits and one walk over 82 pitches and six innings. He fell to 1-3 with the loss and his ERA is now at 3.09 on the season. Salazar struck out three batters on his outing for the Indians.

The 23-year-old has not won a start since his debut on July 11 against Toronto. That said, he's continued to pitch well, though he has not been able to consistently get deep into games. That will come with experience. Salazar will make his next scheduled starting appearance for the Tribe on Tuesday to begin a series at home against the Chicago White Sox.
