The Indians ship Danny Salazar to Columbus

danny salazar getty

Danny Salazar debuted with the Indians last year and made quite an impression, posting a 3.12 ERA in ten starts. This after some promising numbers as he rose through the minor leagues. This year, however, he has been awful, going 1-4 with a 5.53 ERA, walking more batters than he walked last year and allowing way more hits.

That was enough for the Indians: they just optioned him to Triple-A Columbus. To replace him on the roster they called up left Kyle Crockett from Double-A Akron.

Assuming Salazar figures it out in the minors, he’ll be back soon. He’s way too important to the Indians future not to be.
