Blogged under Bloglockers,Front Page,General,Throwing Well by joelapinski on Saturday 21 May 2016 at 8:17 pm

26-year old righty starting pitcher Danny Salazar is taking his game to a new level for the Cleveland Indians in 2016.  He has pitched in 8 games (all starts) for the Indians so far this year and he is 4-2 with a 1.80 ERA and a 1.00 WHIP.  Salazar has only given 27 hits so far this year in his first 50 innings pitched while whiffing 61 batters!  His only flaw has been that he has walked 23 batters so far this year, but it hasn’t mattered because no one has been able to hit the ball hard off of him this year.  He has now pitched in 68 games (all starts) in his first four years with the Indians and he is 26-23 with a 3.42 ERA and a 1.18 WHIP.  The sky is the limit for Salazar, as he has some of the best stuff in all of baseball!

27-year old righty closer Cody Allen and 28-year old righty set-up man Bryan Shaw are both starting to turn the corner for the Cleveland Indians.  Allen has pitched in 13 games (0 starts) for the Indians so far this year and he is 0-3 with 8 saves, a 5.84 ERA and a 1.22 WHIP.  Shaw has pitched in 14 games (0 starts) for the Indians so far this year and he is 0-1 with a 7.11 ERA and a 1.34 WHIP.  But, over the last two weeks, both of these guys are showing signs of turning the corner.  Allen has pitched in 4 games for the Tribe in the last 14 days and he is 0-1 with 2 saves, a 2.45 ERA and a 0.82 WHIP.  He has given up 3 hits and 0 walks while whiffing 7 batters in his last 3 2/3 innings for the Tribe.  Shaw has pitched in 5 games in the last 14 days for the Tribe and he is 0-0 with a 0.00 ERA and a 0.38 WHIP.  He has given up 1 hit and 1 walk in his last 5 1/3 innings while whiffing 5 batters.  The Indians can’t afford to be blowing games late like they did early this year.  For the Indians to really take off, they need Allen and Shaw to close out games!

31-year old righty starting pitcher Josh Tomlin has been amazing for the Cleveland Indians in 2016.  He does not throw hard, but he knows how to pitch.  He throws a lot of strikes, which makes up for the fact that he gives up a lot of homers.  Tomlin has started 4 games for the Tribe so far this year and he is 4-0 with a 3.13 ERA and a 1.09 WHIP.  He has given up 23 hits (3 homers) and 2 walks while whiffing 16 batters in his first 23 innings for the Indians this year.  Tomlin has now pitched in 14 games (all starts) in his last two years with the Indians and he is 11-2 with a 3.05 ERA and a 0.90 WHIP.  Tomlin has now pitched in 99 games (84 starts) in his first 7 years with the Indians and he is 40-30 with a 4.58 ERA and a 1.19 WHIP.  The Indians hope that Tomlin can keep up the good work.

The front end of the bullpen is looking good so far this year for the Cleveland Indians

31-year old righty Jeff Manship, 30-year old righty Joba Chamberlain and 31-year old righty Dan Otero are all pitching well for the Cleveland Indians so far this year.  Manship pitched in 32 games (0 starts) for the Indians last year and he was 1-0 with a 0.92 ERA and a 0.76 WHIP.  He is proving so far that 2015 was not a fluke.  Manship has pitched in 6 games (0 starts) for the Indians so far this year and he is 0-0 with a 0.00 ERA and a 1.07 WHIP.  The Indians took a chance on both Chamberlain and Otero who are both coming off rough seasons, just like Manship was in 2014.  Chamberlain pitched in 36 games (0 starts) for the Royals and Tigers in 2015 and he was 0-2 with a 4.88 ERA and a 1.70 WHIP.  But he has looked good for the Tribe so far this year.  He has pitched in 6 games (0 starts) for the Indians so far this year and he is 0-0 with a 0.00 ERA and a 0.38 WHIP.  He has only given up 1 hit in his first 5 1/3 innings for the Tribe!  Otero pitched in 41 games (0 starts) for the A’s last year and he was 2-4 with a 6.75 ERA and a 1.50 WHIP.  He has pitched in 4 games out of the pen for the Indians so far this year and he is 0-0 with a 0.00 ERA and a 0.25 WHIP.  Otero has only given up 1 hit in his first four innings this year.  The Indians hope that this trio continues to pitch well as it really helps extend the bullpen.
