      Indians' Danny Salazar: Increasing throwing distance

      Danny Salazar (shoulder) is now throwing from 180 feet, Paul Hoynes of the Cleveland Plain Dealer reports.Manager Terry Francona spoke about Salazar's progress Monday, stating, "In his last 10 days, two weeks, his progress has almost skyrocketed." The next step in Salazar's return will be to throw off the mound. While he is almost certainly destined for the injured list to begin the season, Salazar could be utilized out of the bullpen when he is ready to return after missing the entirety of the 2018 season.

      Indians' Danny Salazar: Hoping for first-half return

      Danny Salazar (shoulder) is hoping to resume mound work before the end of spring training, Mandy Bell of MLB.com reports.Salazar didn't pitch all of last season due to a shoulder injury that ultimately required surgery in July. The right-hander recently resumed playing catch, and barring any setbacks, the hope is that Salazar will be able to pitch for the Cleveland Indians prior to the All-Star break. At this point, it's unclear if Salazar will return as a starter or reliever in 2019. Either way, expectations should be tempered coming off the extended layoff.

      Indians' Danny Salazar: Won't be ready for Opening Day

      Danny Salazar (shoulder) isn't expected to be healthy enough to begin the 2019 season with the Cleveland Indians, Joe Noga of Cleveland.com reports.Salazar was expected to start a throwing program in mid-December, though the Indians are already fairly certain the right-hander won't break camp with the big-league club when spring training comes to a close. He'll likely need to spend at least a few weeks in the minors rehabbing until he's ready to return to the major leagues. A better idea of Salazar's availability should become clearer as the season approaches.

      Indians' Danny Salazar: Undergoes season-ending shoulder surgery

      Danny Salazar underwent arthroscopic surgery on his right shoulder Monday and will miss the remainder of the season.Salazar won't end up pitching a game at any level in 2018 after battling shoulder injuries all year. He won't resume throwing for another 12-to-16 weeks, at which point it will be too late for him to get up to speed by the end of the season, even if he's on the short end of that time frame. The Cleveland Indians will hope that the surgery solves his shoulder woes for good, though fantasy owners will have a tough time next year trusting a player with a well-earned reputation for being injury prone, coming off a season in which he did not pitch at all.
