Fantasy Analysis | 1406156160
Danny Salazar's return a mixed bag
by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer

Remember those reports coming out of Triple-A Columbus about Danny Salazar being back to form and as good as he was last year? After his first start back in the majors Thursday, the jury's still out.

He didn't pitch poorly, but any transformation he may have undergone in his 10 starts at Columbus wasn't immediately evident in the results or on the radar gun. He still struggled with his command, walking three in an inefficient five innings, and he still averaged 1-2 mph less on his fastball than he did for most of his stay last year.

And it's not like the results were radically different at Triple-A. His strikeout rate did improve during his stay there, but he still issued 14 walks in 17 2/3 innings over his final three starts. The red flags remained even amid the glowing reports.

So ... were they all a bunch of hooey? Hard to say. The talent is evident. Even with reduced velocity, Salazar is among the hardest throwers in the game and should at least deliver a high strikeout rate. But with his control issues, will he accumulate enough innings for it to matter in Fantasy?

I already ranked him a conservative 77th at starting pitcher before this start, so I didn't feel the need to move him in response. In most leagues, he's worth owning, but in a what-do-you-have-to-lose sort of way.

Jose Ramirez only bright spot for Cleveland on Wednesday
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

Indians just-promoted shortstop Jose Ramirez was easily their premier offensive player Wednesday in Minnesota - but that's not saying much.

Ramirez doubled in a run in the third inning and finished with two of their five hits. In the process, he matched his hit total in 18 at-bats in a previous stint this year with Cleveland.

Non-support dooms Trevor Bauer to defeat
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

A lack of run support continued to plague Indians rookie Trevor Bauer on Wednesday afternoon in Minnesota.

Bauer wasn't lights-out, but he did manage to twirl his fifth quality start in his last six outings and give up three runs or less in his sixth straight. But he took the loss as the Indians provided him with just one run.

The right-hander yielded three earned runs on six hits, including a solo home run off the bat of Oswaldo Arcia. He walked two and fanned seven.

Bauer, whose record fell to 4-5, will try to even it up next Tuesday against visiting Seattle.

Michael Bourn working way back from hamstring injury
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

Indians center fielder and leadoff hitter Michael Bourn has tested out his injured hamstring by running Monday and Wednesday, per MLB.com. He expressed satisfaction with his progress after going down on July 5.

"Hitting (Tuesday) went fine," he said. "I'm just going to take it one day at a time and just stick to the program. Hopefully, I can get close to playing again."

That would please fellow Cleveland outfielder Micheal Brantley. "He's a big part of what we do here," he said. "We're battling the best we can until he's healthy, and we look forward to having him back soon."

Replacement Chris Dickerson has been far from shabby. He has 12 hits in 32 at-bats with eight runs, two home runs and six RBI.

Report: Zach McAllister to start Saturday against Royals
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

What was expected has been all but confirmed. The Indians will promote right-hander Zach McAllister from Triple-A Columbus to start Saturday in Kansas City, per the Cleveland Plain Dealer.

McAllister has earned a spot in the rotation with a strong run with the Clippers, followed by two starts with the Indians in which he surrendered just four runs in 12 1/3 innings.
