Did Cleveland’s Defense Sabotage Danny Salazar’s Start?

Among the points one is compelled to make when arguing on behalf of Corey Kluber‘s candidacy for this year’s Cy Young award is that the defense behind him has been of suspect quality, leading to an inflated BABIP (.316) and higher ERA (68 ERA-) than his main rival for the distinction, Felix Hernandez (63 ERA-).

Indians continue playoff fight as Salazar gets start in series finale

A pair of strong pitching performances have helped the Cleveland Indians bounce back from a rough start to their final road trip of the regular season. Danny Salazar now looks to avoid a third straight rough outing while helping the Indians end Scott Feldman's run of home success for the Houston Astros on Thursday night. Cleveland (78-73) snapped a four-game skid Tuesday when...

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...

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

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...

Salazar continues his second-half surge with third straight win

CLEVELAND -- It has taken four months and a stint in Columbus, but Danny Salazar might finally be developing into the pitcher the Indians hoped he would be at the start of the season. In his third start since being called up from Columbus, Salazar allowed one unearned run in six innings as the Indians rolled to a 12-2 win over the Rangers on Friday night at Progressive Field. Salazar...
