At least one prominent baseball mind thinks that the Cleveland Indians’ recent hot streak is a sign of more good things to come. Grantland’s Jonah Keri, a WFNY favorite who has long been bullish on this version of the Tribe — and especially on Danny Salazar — wrote that he thinks the Indians will contend for the postseason as part of his MLB Quarter-Season Awards. Keri...

Daily SP Rankings: Thursday, May 21

Thursday’s shortened slate is only slightly smaller than usual with 24 probable starters. A solid 16 of those starters rate average or better, so it’s going to be a good day for pitching. Steamer projects a 3.18 ERA the rest of the way from Danny Salazar, which is far better than I expected. Chris Tillman has been mostly mediocre this season, but three of his starts have been...

Salazar Shining When Tribe Needs Him Most

Don’t look now, but it looks like Danny Salazar has finally arrived. After 10 solid starts in 2013, where Salazar looked like a budding star at times, the Indians granted Salazar a place in the 2014 rotation. However, last season didn’t go the way the Indians organization expected for Salazar. Instead of asserting himself as a mainstay in the rotation, Salazar struggled with...

New Pitch: Danny Salazar Curve

Danny Salazar threw three curves in the major leagues before this year. Today, he threw two to Sal Perez. Here’s the second one, which froze Perez and allowed Salazar to steal a strike. Considering that Salazar’s problems have mostly been in the command department, not the stuff section, a pitch that batters won’t swing at […]

Danny Salazar Recalled from Triple-A

With Carlos Carrasco (somehow) only needing an extra day of rest before his next start following a line drive striking him in his face Tuesday night, the Cleveland Indians had to make a decision on how to on the mound on Saturday, in Minnesota.
