Indians | Danny Salazar flirts with no-hitter

Tue, 30 Jun 2015 20:17:04 -0700

Cleveland Indians SP Danny Salazar allowed two runs - one earned - and two hits over 7 2/3 innings with two hits and two strikeouts in a win Tuesday, June 30, against the Tampa Bay Rays. He had a no-hitter into the sixth inning.

Fantasy Tip: Salazar ($7,200; or 14.4% of cap) actually let his FantasyScore players down with the two strikeouts, as he entered play in the Top 5 in K/9 ratio. Still, a win is a win and he remains a must-start more often than not.

Indians | Danny Salazar gets tuned up

Tue, 23 Jun 2015 21:45:10 -0700

Cleveland Indians SP Danny Salazar allowed seven runs - six earned - and six hits over 4 1/3 innings in a loss Tuesday, June 23, against the Detroit Tigers.

Fantasy Tip: Salazar ($7,700; or 15.4% of cap) salvaged the line by picking up eight strikeouts, but it was an obvious poor matchup against David Price and the Tigers. There will be better days.

Indians | Danny Salazar strong at home

Mon, 22 Jun 2015 21:55:58 -0700

Cleveland Indians SP Danny Salazar is the probable starter for Tuesday, June 23, against the Detroit Tigers. He is 3-0 with a 3.26 ERA in five starts at Progressive Field this season.

Fantasy Tip: Salazar ($7,700; or 15.4% of cap) is normally a solid FantasyScore play at home, and he is third in the majors with an 11.17 K/9 ratio. However, he is up against David Price who has eight wins and just one loss in 11 career starts against the Indians. It's probably a good idea to take a pass on Salazar this time around.

Indians | Danny Salazar had cut fingernail

Wed, 27 May 2015 11:04:49 -0700

Cleveland Indians SP Danny Salazar (finger) had a small cut near his fingernail in the fifth inning of his outing Tuesday, May 26, but he managed to go 5 2/3 innings. Pitching coach Mickey Callaway said Salazar's finger was tender Wednesday, May 27. "We're going to take a day off from throwing today, get back to his bullpen (on Thursday)," Callaway said. "(We'll) probably do something like all fastballs. It really bothers him on his offspeed pitches. He really kind of yanks on that part of the finger. He should be fine for his next start."

Fantasy Tip: Salazar ($7,300, 14.6% of cap) allowed three earned runs to the Texas Rangers last night, and he struck out six. If Salazar is ready to make his next start, he should be a safe play at FantasyScore, but monitor his progress just in case. The right-hander leads the league with a 12.0 K/9 rate in 2015.

Indians | Danny Salazar shelled

Sun, 17 May 2015 06:51:36 -0700

Cleveland Indians SP Danny Salazar was pulled Saturday, May 16, against the Texas Rangers, after allowing nine hits and five earned runs in just four and two-third innings.

Fantasy Tip: Salazar ($6,700, 13.4% of cap) possesses plenty of FantasyScore potential thanks to his high strikeout totals when things go according to plan. Saturday's outing should serve as a reminder for owners that Salazar carries a high amount of risk with him. Salazar's next scheduled outing is for Thursday, May 21, against the Chicago White Sox. FantasyScore owners should invest in Salazar at their own risk.
