DANNY SALAZAR NEWS

Fantasy Roundup: Salazar, Dickey Continue to Struggle

Salazar’s command hasn’t been there in the early going (Photo: Jason Miller/Getty Images) For the first three innings Danny Salazar was efficient, threw a lot of strikes, and missed a lot of bats. However, near the end of the fourth inning he lost command of his fastball. The command issues got even worse in the fifth inning as he started the inning by walking Alex Avila and...

Even though the Indians managed to make Justin Verlander work during five innings, the Tiger bullpen came in and held the lead. Player of the Game: Ian Kinsler (2-for-5...

Sophomore pitcher of interest, Danny Salazar, struggles again on Thursday

Danny Salazar took the mound on Thursday, April 17 for the third time as the Cleveland Indians took on the Detroit Tigers. The much-hyped Salzar, with his lightning fast 95.9 MPH fastball average in 2013, was presumed by many a drafter to start 2014 as he finished 2013. So far, through those three outings, Salazar has looked anything but a dominant prospect. In his most recent outing...

K-Zar Danny The Not-So-Great

This should go down easier than Danny Salazar's last start, but it's still not going to be that easy to digest. You have a Tums handy? Good, take like seven of them. Don't worry, if they give you kidney stones, it will take your mind off of K-Zar. Something is wrong. I hypothesized that he was tipping his pitches last time. It didn't make sense that he would...

Tigers 7, Indians 5: Salazar’s implosion starts Tribe demise

What was thought to be a pitchers duel turned into something unexpected. The sun splashed afternoon at Comerica Park and Detroit had a much different feel than the frigid night before, but with Justin Verlander and Danny Salazar locking horns, the thought was that the fans in attendance would be in for a quick afternoon. What transpired was three hour and thirty-eight minute affair...

Indians can't hold lead as Santana, top of order struggle

DETROIT -- For four and a half innings, things were going the Indians' way. They had a 3-1 lead over the Tigers, chased Justin Verlander and were getting a consistent outing from Danny Salazar. And then, as things have a tendency to do, Detroit took advantage of a couple Salazar mistakes and took control. The Tigers scored four runs in the fifth en route to a 7-5 victory and...

The right-hander is coming into the game on an extra day of rest after Tuesday's game was postponed...

The Tribe rotation and its (early) noisy signals

Have you heard that it’s early yet and you shouldn’t make too much of small sample sizes? Well, it is!  And you shouldn’t! But not making a big deal out of stuff doesn’t pay the bills around here, so we’re going to do it anyway, suckers. The Indians rotation has been, for lack of better phraseology, somewhat unique this season.  On the one hand, they’re striking people...

Indians-Tigers series opener postponed

DETROIT -- For the third time in two weeks, an Indians game has been postponed. The Tribe's series opener at Detroit was called off due to inclement weather throughout the Midwest. Snow was falling at Comerica Park a couple hours before the scheduled first pitch and the forecasted low was supposed to be 25 degrees. "When I came out of the hotel and I hate to say this, I...

Homer Bailey Makes Post Titles Too Easy

He's just lucky his name isn't Kicked-In Nuts Bailey. If you turned a paper into your English prof and named the homer-prone pitcher, Homer Bailey, your prof would say it's too expository. But the prof might've been more forgiving if you hadn't named the mayor, Billy Gladhand; the police chief, Officer Corruptski and the fro-yo cashier, Barry Tart. It's...

Explaining Danny Salazar

Maybe the most fun you can have with the Danny Salazar start is by just going over the fun facts. Salazar faced the White Sox Thursday, and he’d go up against 18 batters. Six of them hit the ball fair, and six of them ended up with hits. Two batters walked, meaning ten batters struck […]

Second Thoughts Game #10: Indians 3, White Sox 7

All good things must come to an end and such was the case for the Indians' 14-game win streak against the White Sox. Of course, with no Jason Giambi to summon from the bench, the task was somewhat tougher. Although he made history, Danny Salazar was for the most part ineffective against Chicago's lineup as he once again had to make a number of pitches just to get through...

White Sox 7, Indians 3: Salazar impressive yet disappointing

Well, that certainly was a weird game now wasn’t it? On their way to 92 wins and a Wild Card playoff berth a year ago, your Cleveland Indians used the Chicago White Sox as their personal punching bag. The Wahoos beat the White Sox 17 times in 19 games, including the final 14 in a row. During that stretch, they had three walkoff home runs, two by then 41-year old part time DH Jason...

Danny Salazar’s Outing tonight was as Cleveland as it gets

Danny Salazar was an unorganized, ****** mess tonight in Chicago. Salazar became the first pitcher since 1900 with 10 strikeouts in fewer than four innings pitched; going an inefficient 3 and 2/3 innings, allowing five runs and losing the ballgame. Only wearing a Cleveland Indians uniform can a pitcher manage to be so dominant with his stuff except not really be at all. I don’t...

Jose Abreu literally destroyed a baseball (Photo)

The Indians' dominance over the White Sox finally came to an end Thursday night. And thanks to Cuban slugger Jose Abreu, the tide could be turning between these AL Central foe for a long time to come. Abreu went deep off Indians starter Danny Salazar in the second inning and again in the fifth off reliever Josh Outman. If you thought Abreu's multi-homer night was just a fluke...
