There's really not a lot to analyze about Danny Salazar's 2019 season. He had earned a $4.5 million dollar contract for 2019, and a lot of folks were upset about that. Some folks (myself included) were fine with it because the upside that was promised would be well worth the money if everything panned out. Hindsight says this was a bad deal from the start, but I don't necessarily begrudge the Tribe for making it; $4.5 million shouldn't be a huge deal for a professional baseball team, and I'm a homer for Danny Salazar. But I, and a few others, were wrong. The deal ended up being a bad one and ultimately ended up being a sunk cost since Danny Salazar pitched just one game for the Indians in 2019.
