Description: Cleveland starter Danny Salazar has given up four runs on 13 hits and struck out 13 in 12 innings since being recalled on July 22. He held the Royals to three runs, struck out seven and walked none in seven innings Sunday.
Insight: Salazar was demoted after posting a 5.53 ERA in his first eight starts and he got off to a rocky start in the minors, but he figured things out at the end of June. His upside is immense.
 
7/22/2014 5:43:00 PM
Description: Cleveland starter Danny Salazar has been called up to start Tuesday against the Twins.
Insight: Salazar entered this season with a lot of buzz but posted a 5.53 ERA and a 1.62 WHIP while allowing eight homers in 40 2/3 innings. He's recorded a 4.02 ERA and a 67/28 K/BB in 53 2/3 innings since his demotion to Triple-A, and he's been very good since he returned from a triceps strain on June 15 (3.07 ERA, 52/20 K/BB in 41 IP).

Insight: Salazar entered this season with a lot of buzz but posted a 5.53 ERA and a 1.62 WHIP while allowing eight homers in 40 2/3 innings. He's gone 0-3 with a 7.11 ERA in 12 2/3 innings with Triple-A Columbus since his demotion.
 
5/16/2014 5:26:00 PM
Description: Indians starter Danny Salazar was demoted to the minors on Friday.
Insight: Salazar entered this season with a lot of buzz but he posted a 5.53 ERA and a 1.62 WHIP while allowing eight homers in 40 2/3 innings. He'll try to work out his issues in Triple-A. Trevor Bauer, another former top prospect, will take his spot in the rotation.
 
4/27/2014 8:11:00 PM
Description: Indians starter Danny Salazar dominated the Giants Sunday, allowing one run on five hits with an 8/1 K/BB in seven innings.
Insight: Salazar came in with a 7.85 ERA. The talented right-hander's velocity has been down a couple ticks from last season but he consistently sat at 95 mph Sunday. Salazar has struck out 11.01 batters per nine innings and been hurt by a .388 BABIP, so he's a good buy-low candidate.

Description: Cleveland manager Terry Francona indicated that rookie hurler Danny Salazar would pitch Monday if the Indians have to play Texas or Tampa Bay in a Wild Card tiebreaker game. SOURCE: Paul Hoynes, Cleveland Plain Dealer
Insight: If the Indians win today, they won't need to play on Monday. Salazar has posted a 2.52 ERA in five September appearances.
 
9/20/2013 6:58:00 PM
Description: Indians starter Danny Salazar will make his last regular season start Tuesday against the White Sox, according to the Cleveland Plain Dealer.
Insight: The Indians have been very protective of the 23-year-old, limiting him to an average of 77 pitches and 4.7 innings over his last seven starts even though he has posted a 3.00 ERA and 40 strikeouts in 33 innings during that span. His postseason role (if Cleveland makes it) is undecided.
 
9/1/2013 5:28:00 PM
Description: Cleveland righthander Danny Salazar (6 IP, 6 H, 0 R, 5 K's) was terrific Sunday against Detroit.
Insight: Salazar didn't factor into the decision but the Indians scored four runs after he left to win it by a count of 4-0. The 23-year-old has looked sharp in his last four outings despite going winless over that span (0-2, 2.79 ERA).
 
8/7/2013 9:28:00 PM
Description: After striking out Miguel Cabrera three times Wednesday, Indians pitching prospect Danny Salazar allowed a go-ahead two-run homer to Cabrera on the last pitch he threw to spoil a big night. Salazar struck out 10 batters over 7 2/3 innings in his second big league start, but Cabrera's blast made it 4-3 in the top of the eighth and prevented the 23-year-old from starting out 2-0.
Insight: Armed with 99-mph heat and some strong off-speed stuff, Salazar has fanned 17 batters with two walks in 13 2/3 innings over his first two major league starts. The righty posted a 2.71 ERA and a 129/24 K/BB in 93 innings in the minors this season and should be added in all leagues as he's likely to remain in the rotation in place of Corey Kluber, who is out 4-6 weeks with a sprained right middle finger.
 
8/6/2013 7:15:00 PM
Description: Indians pitching prospect Danny Salazar, who will be recalled Wednesday to start against the Detroit Tigers, is likely to remain in the rotation due to Corey Kluber's sprained middle finger.
Insight: Salazar dominated the Blue Jays in his big league debut on July 11 and has posted a 2.71 ERA and a 129/24 K/BB over 93 innings in the minors this season (33 2/3 IP with Double-A Akron and 59 1/3 with Triple-A Columbus). He should be added in all leagues, even with the Tigers on the schedule Wednesday. Kluber is expected to miss an extended period of time due to his injury.
 
7/11/2013 7:44:00 PM
Description: Indians pitching prospect Danny Salazar allowed one run on two hits and struck out seven over six innings to win his major league debut Thursday against the Blue Jays.
Insight: MLB.com ranked Salazar as Cleveland's No. 8 prospect this past spring. The 23-year-old had a 3.08 ERA and a 100/23 K/BB in 76 innings this season with Double-A Akron and Triple-A Columbus prior to his callup. He's likely to be in the rotation after the All-Star break, so he should be added in most leagues.
 
7/9/2013 7:59:00 PM
Description: Indians pitching prospect Danny Salazar will make his big league debut Thursday against the Toronto Blue Jays.
Insight: MLB.com ranked Salazar as Cleveland's No. 8 prospect this past spring. The 23-year-old has a 3.08 ERA and a 100/23 K/BB in 76 innings this season with Double-A Akron and Triple-A Columbus. Owners in 12-team mixed leagues can give him a shot.
