Due for a clunker, Tribe sleepwalks through makeup tilt

I woke up yesterday and had completely forgotten that the Indians had a makeup day game at Progressive Field. Judging by the attendance, so did the rest of the city. I hate the attendance conversation and it is completely irrelevant to Monday afternoon. I follow this team as closely as anyone and even I didn’t have the game on my radar. Nevertheless, The Los Angeles Angels came...

Salazar stuggles; Angles rout Tribe, 12-3

CLEVELAND—Things were far from normal for the Indians Monday afternoon at Progressive Field. Well, at least on the pitching side of things. Making up a rained out game initially scheduled for June 18 against the first place L.A. Angels, Tribe starter Danny Salazar (6-7, 4.19 ERA) was tagged for six runs on eight hits through 4 2/3 innings, as the Wahoos fell to the Halos, 12...

Reasons to Believe in Danny Salazar

We can’t ever be sure exactly who a player is. Some guys are easier to project than others. Some guys have many years of data and consistent results. Guys like Hunter Pence or Ben Zobrist. Other guys have minimal data and inconsistent results. Danny Salazar is a guy like that. Nevertheless, a large portion of […]

From Zeros to Potential Heroes For Carrasco and Salazar

It’s a well-known fact that with a 162-game schedule a lot can happen over the course of a baseball season – the longest season in North American sports. The idea of a Major League Baseball season being a marathon much more than a sprint is a horribly overused cliché, but has been very much seen on the home front with the Cleveland Indians starting pitching this year. Most notably...

Fantasy Roundup: Buying Salazar (Again)

During the first half of the season it seems as though I wrote something about every start from Danny Salazar. I’ll admit the primary reason for this was because I was very high on him in the preseason and I rostered him in half the leagues I’m in. At first most of those write-ups contained a lot of optimism and the conclusions said something to the effect of, “Salazar has...

A Season-Saving Start from Danny Salazar

8:04 PM – We pick it up tonight heading to the bottom of the fourth with the Indians already up 2-0 on a first inning Carlos Santana home run.  Uh oh. This sounds like last night’s game. But instead of Carlos Carrasco doing wonderfully strange things, tonight we have Danny Salazar on the mound looking boringly good so far, managing his way out of his only spot of trouble in...

Salazar tosses complete game shutout; Tribe blanks Detroit, 7-0

CLEVELAND--Six weeks ago  Danny Salazar was wearing a Columbus Clippers uniform, pitching in Triple-A after a disappointing first two months of the season in the big leagues.  He’s since returned to the majors and hasn’t missed a beat. Wednesday night against Detroit proved to be the right-hander’s best start yet, hurling his first complete game shutout to help the Indians...

Indians Rebound as Salazar Shines; Indians 7, Tigers 0

Baseball sure is a funny game. After riding sky-high on Sunday and then hitting rock bottom by Tuesday, Danny Salazar and the Cleveland Indians showed resilience and rebounded nicely from two straight gut-wrenching defeats to clobber the Detroit Tigers by a score of 7-0. Heading into the game, the pitching matchup promised power against power as the Indians started their young fireballer...

Second Thoughts Game #133: Cleveland 6, Kansas City 1

It was a most peculiar night from Danny Salazar on Friday. His four-seam fastball was running at its fastest, running at an average velocity of 96.1 MPH. Yet while Salazar threw his fastball 60 times on the night, his four-seam induced only one whiff. His primary swing and miss pitch on the night, inducing three whiffs in its four offerings, was Salazar's splitter. Salazar’s...

Second Thoughts Game #128: Astros 2, Indians 3

Danny Salazar is short. Relative to the human male population, this is entirely false, but relative to the body of major league pitchers, it's quite true. Officially listed at 6'0", 190 lb., it's likely that he's 6 feet tall as much in the same sense as Johnny Manziel - perhaps it is accurate, but the teams have every reason to add an extra inch. In terms of...
