The Indians don't believe that Salazar's struggles are related to him tipping his pitches, the Cleveland Plain Dealer reports. "There were some instances [of tipping pithces] last year in spring training that we addressed with him. But no, we really keep an eye on that," manager Terry Francona said.

2014

2013

Salazar came back with a vengeance after Tommy John surgery, combining for a 1.12 WHIP, 2.36 ERA and a 7.8 K/9 rate between High-A Carolina and Double-A Akron. The Indians still have him in a starting role, but his two-pitch arsenal is better suited for use as a power arm out of the bullpen and he could advance quickly if he makes the transition to a reliever. Scouts are also leery about his ability to handle a heavy workload, so the role change makes sense in that regard as well. Still, you can't blame the Indians for seeing if his live arm can stick as a starter given the limited number of high-upside starters currently in the Cleveland farm system.
