Player Notes
Danny Salazar held the Twins to one run on six hits over five innings in Tuesday's win.

Advice: Making his first start since May 15, Salazar showed flashes of his 2013 dominance while also exhibiting some of the shortcomings that led to his demotion earlier this season. The second inning was a perfect example of both, as he recorded all three outs via strikeout but not before walking the bases loaded. He struck out six overall, while the three second-inning walks were his only three of the game. Given his immense talent and the fact that he fared well, he likely earned another turn in the rotation. He's worth a shot in deeper mixed leagues.

Indians recalled RHP Danny Salazar from Triple-A Columbus.

Advice: Salazar will start for the Indians on Tuesday night against the Twins at pitcher-friendly Target Field. He posted a 2.32 ERA and 39 strikeouts over his last 31 innings (five starts) at Columbus and is worth a flier in most standard fantasy leagues. But control is still a major issue for the talented 24-year-old right-hander.

Danny Salazar will be recalled from Triple-A Columbus to start on Tuesday against the Twins.

Advice: It's possible, depending on how soon Justin Masterson (knee) returns, that Salazar might be up for just the one outing. However, he could certainly make a case to stick around for a while by pitching well. The young right-hander holds a 2.32 ERA with 39 strikeouts over 31 innings across his last five starts for Columbus.

Paul Hoynes of the Cleveland Plain Dealer writes that Danny Salazar is the "best guess" to be recalled to start on Tuesday versus the Twins.

Advice: He's the only option, really, as T.J. House will be recalled to start on Monday for the Tribe. Salazar holds a 2.32 ERA with 39 strikeouts over 31 innings across his last five starts for Triple-A Columbus. It's possible he might only be up for the one outing with Justin Masterson (knee) beginning a rehab assignment Sunday, but he could force the Indians to keep him around if he pitches well.
