Indians | Danny Salazar sent down

Fri, 27 Mar 2015 09:37:10 -0700

Updating an earlier report, Cleveland Indians SP Danny Salazar was optioned to Triple-A Columbus Friday, March 27.

Fantasy Tip: Hoynsie predicted that on point. Salazar ($6,000, 12.0% of your cap) should be avoided on FantasyScore, but not forgotten.

Indians | Danny Salazar may not make rotation

Fri, 27 Mar 2015 08:07:49 -0700

Cleveland Indians SP Danny Salazar allowed seven runs on six hits in 3 1/3 innings in his latest spring start Thursday, March 26. Salazar may have cost himself a spot in the starting rotation with the outing, in the opinion of The Cleveland Plain Dealer's Paul Hoynes.

Fantasy Tip: Salazar ($6,000, 12.0% of cap) is a frustrating commodity in fantasy. He'll look like a budding ace in one start and get blown up the next. If he doesn't make the rotation to open the season, monitor his progress until he has another chance. He'll be a great plug-and-play option on FantasyScore.

Indians | T.J. House all but handed No. 4 spot

Mon, 23 Mar 2015 13:38:12 -0700

Cleveland Indians SP T.J. House is the front-runner to be the fourth starter in the rotation. Danny Salazar, Zach McAllister and Josh Tomlin continue to battle for the fifth spot.

Fantasy Tip: House ($3,800, 7.6% of cap) is a late-round flier for mixed leagues, but keep in mind, he pitched better last season with the Indians than he ever did in the minors. House's first start projects to be against the Detroit Tigers, which isn't an ideal spot for FantasyScore contests. However, Detroit could be without a couple middle-of-the-order bats, if Miguel Cabrera and/or Victor Martinez aren't ready to play yet. So House could have upside, especially at his price point. Continue to check back for updates on the battle for the fifth starter, but Salazar is deserving of a late-round selection in mixed leagues based on his high-strikeout potential.

Indians | Danny Salazar strong in latest outing

Sun, 22 Mar 2015 05:36:12 -0700

Cleveland Indians SP Danny Salazar threw first-pitch strikes to 12 of the 16 batters he faced and 64% (44-of-69) of his pitches were strikes Saturday, March 21. He allowed one run on three hits in four innings with five strikeouts.

Fantasy Tip: One of the darlings of the 2014 draft season, Salazar crashed and burned early last season and was optioned to Class AAA. Fast forward a year and Salazar's draft stock has dipped tremendously, and now he presents nice profit potential, especially in strikeouts. Home runs are an issue with Salazar (1.1 HR/9 over his career), though, and he did allow one Saturday. The upside far outweighs the risk if Salazar falls into the late rounds of deep mixed and AL-only leagues.

Indians | Cleveland has rotation openings

Mon, 16 Mar 2015 14:18:18 -0700

Cleveland Indians SPs T.J. House, Danny Salazar, Zach McAllister, Josh Tomlin, Shaun Marcum and Bruce Chen will battle for the two open spots in the team's starting rotation.

Fantasy Tip: Expect Salazar and House to break camp with the jobs. While Tomlin and McAllister tip the scales slightly in AL-only formats, the other two hold no fantasy value. Last season, Salazar failed to follow up his monster 2013 second half and even spent time in the minors. He possess a high-end arsenal of pitches and significant upside, especially in the punch-out department, but shouldn't be viewed as anything more than a late-round flier in mixed leagues. House is a flier in deep mixed leagues, but he is likely be left to AL-only formats. He was better with Cleveland, than he was throughout his entire time at Class AAA, which highlights the risk associated with his fantasy stock.

Indians | Danny Salazar out of the rotation?

Fri, 13 Mar 2015 16:44:03 -0700

Cleveland Indians SP Danny Salazar is ranked behind SP T.J. House in the rotation order, in the opinion of MLB.com's Jordan Bastian. Bastian also speculates SP Zach McAllister could be used as the fifth starter to begin the year.

Fantasy Tip: A breakout from Salazar would certainly be faced with a speed bump if he failed to open the year in the rotation. He still has time to gain traction in his battle for a rotation spot, but if you're drafting now, he's best drafted as a late-round flier.

Indians | Danny Salazar in CLE rotation mix

Tue, 10 Mar 2015 17:45:32 -0700

Cleveland Indians SP Danny Salazar is competing with four others for two rotation openings. Previously, he was battling for the fifth spot in the rotation. News of Indians SP Gavin Floyd (elbow) suffering a serious injury has created a second rotation opening.

Fantasy Tip: Salazar was a popular breakout candidate last year and fell short of expectations. He did, however, pitch well after a midseason demotion to the minors. Once again, he's a high-upside pick with huge strikeout potential who should be drafted as an SP4 or SP5 with a chance to pitch like an SP3.

Sun, 22 Feb 2015 19:11:13 -0800

Cleveland Indians SP Danny Salazar is in the running for the fifth rotation spot, and manager Terry Francona said Sunday, Feb. 22, that Salazar is much further along than he was at this time last season.

Fantasy Tip: Salazar is competing for a spot in a crowded Cleveland rotation, and he needs a good spring to avoid starting out in Columbus. His fantasy appeal will be determined in the next few weeks.

Wed, 18 Feb 2015 00:09:31 -0800

Cleveland Indians SP Bruce Chen will get a crack at the starting rotation this spring, but Chen will have plenty of competition for the fifth spot. Danny Salazar, T.J. House and Zach McAllister will also compete for the job.
