Indians | Danny Salazar fans 11

Fri, 24 Apr 2015 20:09:10 -0700

Cleveland Indians SP Danny Salazar improved to 2-0 with a win over the Detroit Tigers Friday, April 24, allowing one run on six hits in seven innings while striking out a career-high 11.

Fantasy Tip: In two starts since joining the rotation, Salazar has piled up 21 strikeouts while posting a 2.08 ERA. Check to see if he is available on the waiver wire in seasonal formats, and check out his price tag at FantasyScore when he is added to the player pool. His strikeout potential gives him intriguing upside.

Indians | Danny Salazar electric Saturday

Sat, 18 Apr 2015 16:30:56 -0700

Cleveland Indians SP Danny Salazar allowed two runs on six hits and two walks while fanning 10 in six innings to beat the Minnesota Twins Saturday, April 18.

Fantasy Tip: Salazar was straight up filthy with a 98 mph fastball and a changeup that fell off the table. He's a definite target on FantasyScore if he sticks in the rotation.

Indians | Danny Salazar to stick in rotation

Fri, 17 Apr 2015 15:22:20 -0700

Cleveland Indians SP Danny Salazar's start Saturday, April 18, will not be a spot start, according to manager Terry Francona. The team feels that SP Zach McAllister can be a "weapon" out of the bullpen.

Fantasy Tip: Salazar is a very attractive cheap FantasyScore option tomorrow against the offensively-challenged Minnesota Twins. Strongly consider him. McAllister can now be ditched in AL-only leagues, while Salazar will be a popular addition in single-universe and deep mixed leagues this weekend.

Indians | Danny Salazar to stick in rotation?

Thu, 16 Apr 2015 14:50:39 -0700

Updating a previous report, Cleveland Indians SP Danny Salazar may remain in the starting rotation after his start against the Minnesota Twins Saturday, April 18, with SP Zach McAllister returning to the bulllpen.

Fantasy Tip: Salazar ($3,500, 7.0% of cap) is worth a speculative add in the majority of formats. He has huge strikeout potential, and could be worth a flier in FantasyScore contests for his start against the Twins Saturday. Make sure to follow the situation, but Salazar's assignment to Triple-A Columbus was expected to temporary, and he profiles better in the rotation than McAllister long term.

Indians | Danny Salazar to pitch Saturday

Thu, 16 Apr 2015 11:59:36 -0700

Cleveland Indians SP Danny Salazar will be recalled from Class AAA to start against the Minnesota Twins Saturday, April 18.

Fantasy Tip: This is likely just a spot start for Salazar, since Carlos Carrasco had to have his next start pushed back after taking a liner to the face the other day. Salazar went 6-8 with a 4.25 ERA in 20 starts last year and has mostly been a disappointment to fantasy owners expecting more from him. He tossed six shutout innings with seven K's in his only start for Triple-A Columbus this year. A matchup with the weak-hitting Twins is notable at FantasyScore, and he'll be a cheap option that most owners won't be considering.

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.
