Player Notes
Indians optioned RHP Danny Salazar to Triple-A Columbus.

Advice: It was speculated after Salazar was rocked during Thursday's appearance that he might be sent down, and sure enough that's what happened. T.J. House and Zach McAllister are now the favorites to hold down the last two spots in the Indians' rotation, with Josh Tomlin also in the mix. Salazar still figures to spend ample time in the rotation this season if he can get straightened out at Triple-A, but obviously this is a big blow to his fantasy value.

Paul Hoynes of the Cleveland Plain Dealer writes that Danny Salazar "might have cost himself a spot in the rotation" with his poor outing Thursday.

Advice: Salazar gave up seven runs on six hits in 3 1/3 innings against the Reds. Indians manager Terry Francona noted that the club "would never make a decision on one start," but it's possible Salazar is behind Zach McAllister in the pecking order now. Salazar has a 15/5 K/BB ratio over 11 innings this spring but has allowed 13 runs (10 earned). McAllister holds a 3.21 ERA over his 14 frames to go along with a 15/4 K/BB ratio. Perhaps just as important, McAllister is out of options and Salazar has one left. Fantasy owners are certainly rooting for the immensely talented Salazar to pull through.

Danny Salazar was lit up in Thursday's start against the Reds, surrendering seven runs (six earned) over 3 1/3 innings.

Advice: The Reds' first two runs came on a first-inning Todd Frazier solo home run and a second-inning Devon Mesoraco solo shot. From there, the floodgates opened, as Salazar gave up six hits overall, walked none, and struck out six. Salazar has been rather inconsistent, but he has the potential to be an elite fantasy asset if he can put it all together for an entire season.

Danny Salazar struck out five, allowing one run, over four innings in Saturday's Cactus League win over the Rockies.

Advice: Salazar served up a solo home run to Charlie Blackmon, one of three hits he allowed on the afternoon. He also walked two in the game. The right-hander owns a 4.70 ERA in spring action as he attempts to avoid a repeat of 2014. On the contrary, Salazar is one of the more popular bounce-back candidates for fantasy purposes.
