Player Notes
Danny Salazar delivered another impressive outing in Friday's victory over the Tigers, racking up 11 strikeouts over seven innings of one-run ball.

Advice: Salazar became the first Tribe hurler since 1970 to record ten or more strikeouts in each of his first two April starts. He allowed just six hits and three walks on the night, with the only blemish against him on a solo home run off the bat of Nick Castellanos. He'll look to continue his dominance on Wednesday against the Royals.

Danny Salazar racked up 10 strikeouts over six innings as he defeated the Twins in his season debut on Saturday.

Advice: The young right-hander surrendered two runs on six hits and a pair of walks on the afternoon. The Indians are committed to keeping Salazar in the rotation and he showed a glimpse of why that is with this terrific start. He'll look to keep things rolling when he takes the ball against the Tigers in Detroit on Friday.

Indians recalled RHP Danny Salazar from Triple-A Columbus.

Advice: Salazar will make his season debut against the Twins on Saturday. Regardless of how he performs in that start, manager Terry Francona has already confirmed that he'll remain in the Tribe's rotation moving forward. He's a terrific target in daily leagues on Saturday and an intriguing addition in all mixed leagues.

Indians manager Terry Francona clarified Friday that Danny Salazar will remain in the starting rotation after Saturday's start against the Twins.

Advice: There had been speculation that it would just be a spot start for the young right-hander, but instead he'll bump Zach McAllister to the Tribe's bullpen. With his high-strikeout ability, he makes a terrific free agent target in mixed leagues where he happens to be available.

Danny Salazar will be called up Saturday to start against the Twins at Minnesota's Target Field.

Advice: Salazar struck out seven batters and allowed only four hits over six scoreless innings in his one start this season for Triple-A Columbus. The 25-year-old right-hander has excellent swing-and-miss stuff and makes for an attractive fantasy streamer against the light-hitting Twins. He could be sent back down after the start if Carlos Carrasco (face) remains on track to return to the rotation Monday. Or maybe Zach McAllister will be left in the bullpen for good if Salazar pitches lights-out. There's a lot to be determined here.
