The Cleveland Indians skipped 26-year old righty starting pitcher Danny Salazar in the rotation due to shoulder fatigue. It’s better to be safe than sorry as far as Salazar is concerned. Salazar has pitched in 11 games (all starts) for the Indians so far this year and he is 6-3 with a 2.24 ERA and a 1.13 WHIP. He has only given up 44 hits and he has whiffed 81 batters in his first 68 1/3 innings this year, but he has walked 33 batters and that’s way too many. 25-year old righty Cody Anderson took Salazar’s start last night and he was awful. He has pitched in 9 games (8 starts) for the Indians so far this year and he is 1-4 with a 7.48 ERA and a 1.64 WHIP. Anderson has given up 63 hits (11 homers) and 8 walks while whiffing 36 batters in his first 43 1/3 innings this year. The Indians can’t afford to lose Salazar, because the alternatives are not good (see Anderson).
