The Indians gave an update on pitcher Danny Salazar, and has had been the case quite a bit lately, the news is not good.
Salazar, who has not thrown a pitch this season or last, has had another setback as he tries to make his way back to the mound to try and help the Indians beat up pitching staff.
The 29-year-old has been throwing bullpens for over a month, but something didn’t feel right after his most recent one.
He visited with Dr. Keith Meister, who performed his shoulder surgery last June and has been shut down for a few days.
Salazar does not have a clear timeline to return to the field. He’s not thrown in a regular season game since September 27th of the 2017 season.
In 2017 Salazar went 5-6 with a 4.28 ERA, making 19 starts, 23 appearances total. He was an All-Star in 2016 when he went 11-6 with a 3.87 ERA.
This season the Indians are paying Salazar $4.5 million, money that appears now could have went to try and get some help elsewhere on the roster.
