Good news and bad news out of Cleveland. The good news: Danny Salazar, who noted last night that he’s been having elbow discomfort, had an MRI today that ruled out structural damage. Bad news: he has inflammation and is being placed on the 15-day disabled list. Brandon Guyer, who the Tribe acquired from the Rays yesterday, has assumed Salazar’s spot on the 25-man roster.

Salazar is expected to miss 2-3 weeks. It’s a big blow for the Indians, as Salazar has been having a fantastic year. The All-Star is 11-4 with a 3.38 ERA and a K/BB ratio of 133/51 in 117.1 innings. He’s been really wobbly his last couple of starts, however, and says that his elbow has been bothering him since before the All-Star break.
