A tough decision on the Cleveland Indians final rotation spot

This team may have the most consistent year-to-year roster retention it has had in decades. Although there weren’t any major splashes in free agency, the Indians did not lose any of its foundation either and henceforth, look to be promising in the upcoming season. However, their lone pitching pickup, Gavin Floyd, has re-aggravated his elbow and will be out indefinitely. This...

David Schoenfield names Indians Danny Salazar sleeper Cy Young candidate

Another day, another positive article being written about the Cleveland Indians. Apparently, David Schoenfield had drawn the Friday slot for waxing poetic about one of the Indians pitchers, but the pitcher that he wrote about may surprise you. He started off with the basic premise of attempting to identify the 2015 pitchers who might best fit the profile of becoming the next Corey...

Grantland: Carlos Carrasco, Trevor Bauer, and Danny Salazar poised for breakout seasons

Grantland’s Jonah Keri is a big fan of the Cleveland Indians this season, so much so that he recently placed them among the top five teams in baseball. With a Cy Young candidate for an ace, an MVP candidate in left field and one of the best catchers in the game, this makes sense. But for the Indians to make that jump, they’ll not only need improvement from key players—Jason...

No Handouts: Danny Salazar Must Earn It In Spring Training

There will be no handouts for Danny Salazar in 2015. If the organization’s once coveted pitching prospect wants a spot in the Tribe’s five man rotation, he will have to earn it in spring training. Signed at age 16 in 2006 out of the Dominican Republic, Salazar didn’t do much to separate himself in the low minors, but his career took off after recovering from Tommy John surgery...

3/10 Spring Training Recap & Injury Update

Today was a dour day for the Tribe as the news came down that Gavin Floyd’s broken elbow has been reaggravated and he will miss significant time. The official word is indefinite, but he will definitely miss Opening Day and will almost certainly be placed on the 60 Day DL before the season starts. This does open up the fourth spot in the rotation for competition in addition to the...

Cleveland Indians: Limited roster spots available in Spring Training

With Spring Training underway and Cactus League play right around the corner, the Cleveland Indians will open up preseason play on Tuesday against the Reds with a limited number of roster spots available.

Cleveland’s Success Riding on Young Starters

The Cleveland Indians’ 2014 season would have been far less successful if not for the emergence of several key young contributors within the starting rotation. The offense lacked consistency from some of the biggest names and highest paid members of the organization. The defense, for lack of better and more appropriate terms, was downright atrocious with the glove and arm while...

Excitement surrounding Tribe's rotation, but final spot still up for grabs

Last season, the Indians rotation was a work in progress from the time they reported to Goodyear, Ariz. Over the last two months though things gelled. During that period, they led the majors in strikeouts (358) and had the second-lowest ERA (2.76) while logging pitched the fourth-most innings (338 2/3). Many are banking that this season the rotation will resemble that and not the...

A Look at the Indians 2015 Starting Rotation

If the Indians are to make their second playoff appearance in three seasons, it will be largely due to the starting rotation picking up where it left off in the second half of 2014. The Tribe will enter 2015 with the same group of pitchers it ended 2014 with, avoiding the uncertainty that plagued last year’s staff after losing Scott Kazmir and Ubaldo Jimenez to free agency.

Player Profile #125: Danny Salazar | SP | CLE

In 2013 Danny Salazar was one of baseball’s most exciting pitchers.

Those major league numbers were mirror images of what Salazar had done in the minors prior to his call-up to Cleveland...
