      Danny Salazar: Becomes free agent

      Danny Salazar (groin) elected free agency after being outrighted off the Indians' 40-man roster Monday.Salazar's career has become derailed by injuries after a promising start. He's made just a single big-league appearance over the last two years combined, injuring his groin in August in his first start since recovering from a serious shoulder issue. He'll likely generate some interest as a lottery ticket due to his career 3.82 ERA and 27.7 percent strikeout rate, but he'll turn 30 in January and is one of the biggest injury risks in the league, so expectations should be kept very low.

      Indians' Danny Salazar: Moves to 60-day IL

      Danny Salazar (groin) was transferred to the 60-day injured list Friday, Mandy Bell of MLB.com reports.Salazar stepped away from his rehab assignment earlier in the week and the move to the 60-day IL means he'll be sidelined through the end of the regular season. The 29-year-old returned from the IL at the end of July and allowed two runs over four innings during his lone start before going back on the shelf. Salazar would be eligible to rejoin the Cleveland Indians in October, but that seems unlikely given how this season has unfolded.

      Indians' Danny Salazar: Throws scoreless frame for Double-A

      Danny Salazar (groin) struck out one over a perfect inning Tuesday in his rehab start for Double-A Akron.Salazar made only one start for the big club earlier this month before straining his right groin in that same outing and returning to the 10-day injured list. The Cleveland Indians haven't specifically outlined their plans for Salazar the rest of the season, but his usage Tuesday indicates he'll most likely be in store for a bullpen role once he's activated. The emergence of rookie Aaron Civale along with the potential return of ace Corey Kluber (oblique) from the IL later in September lessens the need for Cleveland to bring Salazar back in a starting role.

      Indians' Danny Salazar: Ready for rehab

      Danny Salazar (groin) will begin a minor-league rehab assignment with Double-A Akron on Monday, Zack Meisel of The Athletic reports.Salazar has been on the shelf since Aug. 1 with a groin injury that he suffered in what was his first big-league start since 2017 due to recurring shoulder injuries. With a little more than a month left in the regular season, the Cleveland Indians may opt to bring back Salazar in a relief role. He's scheduled to pitch one inning for Akron on Monday.

      Indians' Danny Salazar: Groin strain considered mild

      The right groin injury that landed Danny Salazar back on the 10-day injured list is being labeled as mild, Anthony Castrovince of MLB.com reports.Salazar entered the Cleveland rotation Thursday for his first appearance with the big club since 2017 after a long road back from a variety of health issues. In a cruel twist of fate, he lasted just four innings and dealt with diminished velocity before he was pulled on account of the groin injury. While he finds himself back on the IL once again, the fact that Salazar's injury is considered mild at least counts as good news and leaves the door open for him to resurface with the big club before long. He'll begin rehabbing right away in Tampa, but it's unclear if the Tribe envisions him filling a rotation or bullpen role once he's ready for game action again.

      Indians' Danny Salazar: Exits with soreness

      Danny Salazar (groin) allowed two runs off four hits and three walks while recording two strikeouts as he was charged with the loss Thursday against the Astros. He exited the game with groin soreness, Mandy Bell of MLB.com reports.Salazar's velocity was down in his first major-league start since 2017, and the groin soreness helps explain why, as the injury continued to worsen throughout the game. He'll be evaluated Friday, but the 29-year-old said he doesn't expect the injury to be too serious.

The right-hander looked sharp across six rehab appearances, posting a 2.60 ERA, 1.21 WHIP and 28:5 K:BB in 17.1 innings. He'll assume Trevor Bauer's spot on the 25-man roster, while Eric Stamets was designated for assignment to free up a 40-man spot for Salazar.

      Indians' Danny Salazar: Will start Thursday

      Danny Salazar (shoulder) will return from the 60-day injured list to start Thursday against the Astros, Zack Meisel of The Athletic reports.Salazar isn't expected to pitch particularly deep into the contest, as he's only been stretched out to around 70 pitches. Still, the Cleveland Indians will certainly be happy to see the return of a player who hasn't throw an a big-league pitch since 2017. It's not clear what Salazar can offer after over a year and a half lost to shoulder troubles, but he was an effective pitcher when we last saw him, posting a 3.82 ERA and a 27.8 percent strikeout rate over five seasons of work. He owns a 2.60 ERA and 28 strikeouts in 17.1 rehab innings.
