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.

Cleveland Indians SP Danny Salazar, who last made a start May 15 for the big club, is a candidate to come up from Triple-A Columbus to start Saturday, July 12, against the Toronto Blue Jays in place of the injured SP Justin Masterson (knee). "(Senior director or scouting operations) John Mirabelli watched Danny's last start and said he looked like he did for us last year," manager Terry Francona said Tuesday, July 8.

Cleveland Indians SP Justin Masterson (knee) was placed on the 15-day disabled list with right knee inflammation. Cleveland also designated RP Mark Lowe for assignment.
Fantasy Tip: Maybe Carlos Carrasco will join the rotation, but he's been so good in relief that they may not want to mess with his spot. This could mean the return of Zach McAllister or the talented but troubled Danny Salazar. Stay tuned.

Cleveland Indians SP Danny Salazar (triceps) made his first start with Triple-A Columbus since landing on the 7-day disabled list due to a triceps injury.

"All reports were very, very positive."

Cleveland Indians SP Danny Salazar (triceps) is on the 7-day minor league disabled list with Triple-A Columbus due to a right triceps strain. He's expected to miss one or two starts.
Fantasy Tip: Salazar, a popular sleeper pick in drafts this year, has been one of this year's biggest disappointments so far. Drop him in all but the deepest of AL-only leagues at this point. He could make a comeback in the second half, though, so don't rule him out entirely.

Cleveland Indians manager Terry Francona said SP Danny Salazar will be back at the major league level, but the team wants to see him throw his fastball more down in the zone, be more consistent with his curveball and start throwing more changeups. "We told him that we don't care about your numbers at Triple-A," said Francona. "We want you to execute pitches. We want him to get his confidence back in his change up and be armed to get major league hitters out when he gets back here . . .and he will be back and he will be good."

The Cleveland Indians optioned SP Danny Salazar to Triple-A Columbus Friday, May 16, and recalled P Kyle Crockett from Double-A Akron in a corresponding move.
Fantasy Tip: This likely signifies the Tribe's plans to call up Trevor Bauer to have him fill the vacant starting rotation spot. Get a jump on him and add him wherever he's available. Salazar isn't done, but the team probably wants to see him become more efficient and work on his control before giving him another chance. AL-only managers should hang onto him if they can.

Over his last three outings, Cleveland Indians SP Danny Salazar has posted a 3.44 ERA, with 21 strikeouts and only five walks in 18 1/3 innings. Salazar tossed a combined 18 1/3 innings in his first four starts of the season.

Cleveland Indians SP Danny Salazar said he has struggled with tipping pitches in the past and may be experiencing similar problems now. He watched video and noticed his glove position has changed when he's switched between fastballs and changeups; he said that when throwing the latter, he sometimes opens his glove up too much. Salazar has also experienced issues when facing a lineup the second time around. Cleveland is unlikely to force Salazar to try working things out in the minor leagues; they've recently affirmed their confidence directly to Salazar.
Fantasy Tip: Salazar is worth stashing in deep leagues; if he can fix his issues with his delivery and stamina, he could have a fine finish to the season. You have to consider how patient you can be in shallower formats, though. A surging Trevor Bauer may join the rotation if Salazar can't recover.
