26-year old righty starting pitcher Danny Salazar of the Cleveland Indians has been selected to the All Star Team for the first time in his career, but he won’t pitch in the game due to a sore right elbow.  Salazar has pitched in 17 games (all starts) for the Indians so far this year and he is 10-3 with a 2.75 ERA and a 1.18 WHIP.  He has given up 77 hits and 46 walks while whiffing 118 batters in his first 104 2/3 innings this year for the Tribe.  Salazar has now pitched in 77 games (all starts) for the Indians in his first four years with the team and he is 32-24 with a 3.45 ERA and a 1.20 WHIP.  The Indians hope that this is the first of many All-Star Teams that Salazar will be selected to be on in his career.

25-year old righty starting pitcher Trevor Bauer has been pitching great lately for the Cleveland Indians.  He has started 4 games so far in June for the Indians and he was 1-0 with a 2.12 ERA and a 1.01 WHIP.  Bauer has now pitched in 16 games (10 starts) overall this year and he is 4-2 with a 3.46 ERA and a 1.25 WHIP.  Bauer has given up 68 hits and 26 walks while whiffing 69 batters in his first 75 1/3 innings so far this year.  Bauer is finally starting to trust his stuff and he is attacking hitters instead of nibbling.  The sky is the limit for Bauer moving forward as long as he can stay focused.

Dan Otero is looking good this year for the Cleveland Indians

The Cleveland Indians took a chance on 31-year old righty reliever Dan Otero when they signed him to a minor league deal over the winter.  After all, he pitched in 41 games (0 starts) for the Oakland A’s last year in which he was 2-4 with a 6.75 ERA and a 1.50 WHIP.  But he looks nothing like the pitcher he was in Oakland last year.  He has pitched in 17 games (0 starts) for the Indians so far this year and he is 0-0 with 1 save, a 0.86 ERA and a 1.10 WHIP.  Otero has only given up 18 hits and 5 walks while whiffing 17 batters in his first 21 innings this year for the Tribe.  If he keeps pitching this well, he might get to start pitching later in games for the Tribe.

Danny Salazar continues to amaze for the Cleveland Indians

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!
