Cleveland Indians SP Danny Salazar will be recalled from Triple-A Columbus to start Sunday, Aug. 17, against the Baltimore Orioles, according to manager Terry Francona. Francona noted SP T.J. House will temporarily move to the bullpen.
Fantasy Tip: Santana is a high-risk, high-reward starter for Sunday. He has plus-strikeout potential, but his command has been a serious issue this season. Salazar is worth owning in deep mixed leagues and AL-only formats, if he can stick in the Indians rotation.

Cleveland Indians SP Danny Salazar said he felt great in his start against the Kansas City Royals Sunday, July 22, in which he went seven innings. Salazar showed good velocity in the outing and made some adjustments early that helped him stick around in the game longer. The seven innings matched his longest start of the year, and it was the first time he didn't walk anyone.
Fantasy Tip: Salazar was everyone's sweetheart during draft season, but he quickly flamed out due to his inefficiency on the mound. Now that he appears to have worked out the kinks in the minors, he could be an excellent source of K's down the stretch in AL-only and deep mixed leagues.

Cleveland Indians SP Danny Salazar allowed a run on six hits and struck out six in five innings to beat the Minnesota Twins Tuesday, July 22.
Fantasy Tip: Salazar was very hittable in his recent stint at Triple-A, but he logged 67 strikeouts in 53 2/3 innings. It appears you're going to have to put up with high ratios to feast on his strikeouts.

Cleveland Indians SP Danny Salazar was recalled from Triple-A Columbus Tuesday, July 22, to pitch against the Minnesota Twins. In a corresponding move, RP C.C. Lee was optioned to Columbus.
Fantasy Tip: Salazar's ability to miss bats makes him an intriguing addition in the majority of mixed leagues. However, he has struggled with his command and is a high-risk, high-reward player. Consider Salazar tonight against the Twins in daily games, if he is priced right.

Cleveland Indians scouts have been told to focus on Tampa Bay Rays minor league players, which has triggered speculation it is interested in trading for SP David Price. C Carlos Santana and SP Danny Salazar were rumored to head to Tampa Bay for Price in the offseason, and the Indians have indicated players who may be expendable. SS Francisco Lindor is not one of them, say sources.
