BACK IN THE MIX: Indians RHP DANNY SALAZAR will make his 2014 Cactus League debut today, slated to get the start and pitch 2.0 innings…the right-hander is then scheduled to throw a bullpen session on Wednesday before making a 3.0-inning appearance in Friday’s Minor League game (subject to change)…some Salazar quick hits from 2013:
• Won his debut vs. Toronto on July 11 in sterling fashion, fanning 7 over 6.0-innings of 1-run ball, becoming the first Tribe pitcher since 1964 and just the fourth overall in the 113-year history of the franchise to strike out at least 7 batters in a debut.
•In his second start, Salazar registered a career-high 10 strikeouts on August 7 vs. Detroit, which were the most by an Indians rookie pitcher since 2004 (Kaz Tadano).
• In his first career start opposite the White Sox on September 13 at U.S Cellular Field, Salazar became the first MLB pitcher since at least 1916 to record 9 strikeouts in less than 4.0 innings, while not allowing a single run
• Became the only starting pitcher in the Majors to strike out Miguel Cabrera 3 times in a single game.
