Indians | Danny Salazar does what he does best

Sat, 18 Jun 2016 19:53:14 -0700

Cleveland Indians SP Danny Salazar was staked to a huge early lead Saturday, June 18, against the Chicago White Sox, but he stayed focused and allowed just two earned runs, five hits and a walk with seven strikeouts over 6 2/3 innings in a win.

Fantasy Tip: Salazar is one of the best pitchers in fantasy thanks to his strong strikeouts per nine innings ratio and minuscule ERA. He also moved to 8-3 with the victory. Salazar is a must-start DFS option, regardless of price tag.

Indians | Danny Salazar on track for Sunday

Tue, 07 Jun 2016 09:09:16 -0700

Cleveland Indians SP Danny Salazar (shoulder) will miss his scheduled start against the Seattle Mariners due to shoulder fatigue Tuesday, June 7, but he's still on track to take his turn against the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim Sunday, June 12. SP Cody Anderson will face the Mariners Tuesday in Salazar's place. Salazar is fourth in the American League with 81 strikeouts in just 68 1/3 innings.

Fantasy Tip: Salazar has pitched like a fantasy ace this year, so this news is concerning to his owners. However, if he turns out to be fine for Sunday, he's a good play against a weak-hitting Angels squad. Anderson has a 6.81 ERA and 1.58 WHIP this year in seven starts and is too shaky to rely on against the M's in a spot start for fantasy.

Indians | Danny Salazar missing start

Mon, 06 Jun 2016 17:47:08 -0700

Cleveland Indians SP Danny Salazar (shoulder) will not be able to make his start Tuesday, June 7, due to shoulder fatigue. SP Cody Anderson will fill in and start against the Seattle Mariners.

Fantasy Tip: Hopefully Salazar ends up missing only this assignment, as he's been simply phenomenal this season and appears on track for his first career All-Star berth. Anderson, meanwhile, isn't really an ideal option to consider, as he's 1-3 with a 6.81 ERA and 1.59 WHIP in seven starts and one relief appearance. However, Anderson's most recent start in the majors -- on May 23 -- saw him deliver seven innings of one-run ball with nine strikeouts, so maybe he's turning the corner.

Fantasy Tip: With a 2.39 ERA and excellent strikeout totals, Salazar is pitching like a No. 2 fantasy starter.

Red Sox | Jackie Bradley continues hit streak

Sun, 22 May 2016 14:49:07 -0700

Boston Red Sox OF Jackie Bradley Jr. extended his hitting streak to 27 games in a win over the Cleveland Indians on Sunday, May 22, with a fifth-inning single off SP Danny Salazar.

Fantasy Tip: Bradley has registered exactly one hit in seven of his last eight games, although it is not as if his owners are overly concerned since he drawn 10 walks and struck out only three times over that same stretch. He's a good bet to continue his hit streak for a while longer as the Colorado Rockies plan on trotting out Chris Rusin, Jon Gray and Eddie Butler against the Red Sox at Fenway Park in their three interleague games beginning on Tuesday.
