RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2015

Subscribe now to see our 2015 outlook.

2014

Salazar started the season at Double-A Akron before bringing his high-90s fastball to the Indians for 10 starts. The Indians kept a lid on his innings in all but a few starts, which certainly limited his impact, but he's clearly pitched his way into the team's plans for 2014. The short-term issue here is that he logged 145 innings over three levels in 2013, which could prompt the Tribe to cap him at something in the 175-180 range this season. Still, with an 11.3 K/9 and good control at each of his minor league stops (including a 2.6 BB/9 in his big league debut), Salazar has the highest upside in the stable of Cleveland starters.

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.
