2016

2015

Salazar reminded everyone once again why you canít get overly excited about 52 innings, even if they are excellent. As much as young pitching can pay off and help carry your fantasy team, it can also put you in such a hole when it goes wrong that you will spend months erasing the damage. While we have seen several youngsters take the league by storm, it is still far from a guarantee. Plus, itís not like Salazarís biggest issue wasnít front and center even during the 52-inning stint of 2013. He had a 1.2 HR/9 in those 10 starts, but the flashy strikeout rate and impressive ratios masked it for many. Salazar came out and allowed eight bombs in his first eight starts of 2014 en route to a 5.53 ERA and a trip back to Triple-A. He ironed out some of the issues, returned in late July and allowed just five homers in his next 12 starts. The right-hander's still not a finished product at age 25, but still has tremendous upside that could include large strikeout totals.

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.
