DANNY SALAZAR NEWS

Not Good, Just Better

I won’t call it a comeback, as a three-game winning streak does not a playoff run make. The Indians still have a long way to go until they can be deemed to be even close to the team that fans and the media expected them to be to start the season. However, they seem to have at least turned some corner, no matter how small of a turn that may be. What exactly has been working for...

Daily DraftKings Picks: Friday, May 22

The boom-or-bust Brewers busted in Atlanta, which is always a very distinct possibility, but starter Danny Salazar came through as expected and I got a big payoff from a switch I made after lineups came out, subbing in Mike Aviles for Jose Ramirez. Originally I had Ramirez in there as he’d been batting second in Carlos Santana’s absence, but with Santana reappearing in Cleveland’s...

C-Cap Recap: That’s Called a Winning Streak

Had this game been played in Cleveland, one could only assume they would have dropped confetti from the upper deck. The Indians have won three in a row! It’s their first such string of the entire season, but more importantly, the low-stress 5-2 win over the White Sox Thursday night gave the Tribe an honest-to-gosh series win against a divisional foe (they had been 0-7-1 in such...

Pair of Early Homers Pace Tribe to Series Win; Indians 5, White Sox 2

For the first time since the opening series of the season, the Indians won a series–taking three of four from the Chicago White Sox. Thursday evening the Tribe used a pair of first inning homers from Mike Aviles and Nick Swisher to mount a four-run inning. It was enough to take the Tribe to a 5-2 win in the Windy City. Danny Salazar fired six strong innings, allowing just five...

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...

Is Michael Brantley the Next Joe Sewell?

Continuing on with an unplanned series comparing the players of today to the greats of the past in one small aspect, the time has come for the Indians All-Star and Silver Slugger, starting left fielder Michael Brantley. In the first two editions, I discussed whether Corey Kluber could pull a Luis Tiant and if Danny Salazar could be what Herb Score could have been had he not be devastatingly...

A Second Chance to Score

The Indians have many incredible pitchers in their history including five who made it into the Hall of Fame as Indians and nine more Hall of Famers who were enshrined as members of another team, but played for the Indians, but there is one pitcher who seemed an obvious choice after his first two seasons, but was unable to make it in, Herb Score. During his first two seasons, Score...

Bode Plots: Analyzing Indians starters

The 2015 Cleveland Indians season has been frustrating to follow thus far. The season began with lofty expectations propped up by the team becoming the national darlings of the now analytic-friendly media. The Indians even managed to win their opening series against the Houston Astros who have unexpectedly been one of the best teams in baseball. Since that time, the Indians have...

The Devastation of Danny Salazar

Breaking out for three consecutive years certainly has some positive elements to it, but it also means that the first two breakouts did not completely take. After failing to make the rotation out of Spring Training, Danny Salazar might have moved himself from potential breakout star to post-hype sleeper. After his hot start, the sleeper […]

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...

DraftKings: Who Is Danny Salazar?

Am I the only one still utterly confused by Danny Salazar? The only thing I know he brings to the table for sure is strikeouts. After his first two starts, there was a great deal of chatter that Salazar had finally figured it out and his ascension to heaven to sit on the right side of Roger Clemens and Bob Feller was nearly complete. Yes in this scenario Roger Clemens is dead, and...
