Series Preview: Royals vs. Cleveland Indians, July 24-27

The Kansas City Royals return home to face their division rivals, the Cleveland Indians in a four-game set that could help to bury the Royals more in the American League Central standings or it could be a springboard to a renaissance that leads to a renewed presence in the playoff race for both a wild card and even a division title. The Royals are just 4-5 against the Indians this...

What Can We Expect From Danny Salazar in the Second Half?

Written by numberFire (@numberFire) Danny Salazar was supposed to be the Indians new ace. Brought up from Triple A midway through last season, Salazar had young phenom written all over him. He finished 2013 with a 3.12 ERA, 3.16 fielding independent pitching (FIP), 2.75 expected fielding independent (xFIP), and an astounding 11.25 strikeouts per nine innings (K/9). He struck out...

Second Thoughts Game #100: Indians 8, Twins 2

What a much needed win by the Tribe on Tuesday after losing two of their last three games. This game saw the return of Danny Salazar who hasn’t pitched in a big league game since May 15th.  It also saw Carlos Santana and Nick Swisher have offensive nights that we haven’t seen from either of them much this season. Santana might have had an edge against Yohan Pino as he...

Is Danny Salazar back?

It seems longer ago, but all it took was a mid-July afternoon on the corner of Carnegie and Ontario. I sat next to TD, roughly thirty yards from the pitchers mound housed within Progressive Field, as Danny Salazar made his Major League debut. I had planned to only stay for a few innings, spending what would otherwise be my lunch hour taking in some Tribe baseball. We didn’t know...

Indians beat Twins, 8-2, on Danny Salazar's arm, Carlos Santana's bat

The Indians have made a habit of scoring in the late innings this season and they did it again Tuesday night at Target Field with a big ninth inning against veteran reliever Matt Guerrier. Yet it was the runs they scored early that secured a victory for Danny Salazar in his return to the big leagues. Salazar pitched five innings in his first big-league start since May 15 to earn...

7/22 Recap: Salazar Good Enough in Return, Santana Great

Roster Update: For the third straight day, the Indians brought a pitcher up from AAA to start and this time it was Danny Salazar. Reliever C.C. Lee was sent down to make room, giving the Indians a much more typical eight man bullpen. Player of the Game Carlos Santana did it all tonight, reaching base via the smallest and largest ways possible. In his first at bat, Santana lead off...

What to watch: Salazar gets shot against Twins

With the Indians rotation still in a bit of flux, a return to last year's form by Danny Salazar could help provide some stability. Salazar gets his chance to make a case for why he deserves to remain in Cleveland tonight against Minnesota as he makes his first major-league start since May 15. In 10 starts with Columbus, Salazar is 3-6 with a 4.02 ERA but in his past four is 2...

Daily SP Rankings: Tuesday, Jul 22

Tuesday’s probable starters are rather underwhelming — just nine of the day’s 30 pitchers rank 100 or better, though several check in at 99-point-something. Bruce Chen, who’s filling in for Jason Vargas in Kansas City’s rotation, comes in at 109.1 against the White Sox. Steamer projects a 4.05 ERA the rest of the way for Chen, but the rankings say he’ll go fairly deep...

2014 Fantasy Baseball: Danny Salazar, Return from the Milk Carton?

Remember Danny Salazar? I do, because I paid way too much for him in my Ottoneu auction. I knew he had his warts – home runs, perhaps stamina issues, and injury history. Nonetheless, I pulled the trigger because of his ability to miss bats. It didn’t quite work out for me. After posting a 5.53 ERA (4.71 FIP) in 40.2 innings, and seeing his strikeout and walk rates go in the wrong...

2014 Key Players: Midseason Review

For a second year in a row this spring, I profiled five players that I thought were keys to the Indians’ playoff hopes. These were individuals whose performance, for better or worse, would go a long way toward determining the team’s ultimate fate in the 2014 season. Those five players were Danny Salazar, Yan Gomes, Michael Bourn, John Axford, and Corey Kluber. The previous...

Second Thoughts Game #86: Kansas City 3, Cleveland 7

After losing 7-1 on Friday in front of a sellout crowd, the Indians won 7-3 on Saturday in front of a listed crowd of 24,481. Because correlation is always causation, one assumes that the cutoff line between 'homefield advantage' and 'too crowded' is approximately 25,000 in paid attendance.On a more serious note, Cleveland's 7-3 victory was neither wholly out...

We’re enamored with electric arms. As recently as this season, fantasy owners scrambled to get a piece of Danny Salazar and Yordano Ventura because of their abilities to hit triple digits on the radar gun. It doesn’t always work out (ahem, Salazar), but having dynamite stuff definitely boosts a pitcher’s chance of succeeding, especially early in their career. Despite possessing...
