Danny Salazar Impresses in Rehab Start in AAA Columbus

Danny Salazar’s road back to the big league roster took another step forward Sunday, as he threw well pitching for the Columbus Clippers against the Buffalo Bisons.

The former Tribe starter went 3.1 innings, allowing three hits with a walk and six strikeouts.

He threw 64 pitches, 46 of which were strikes.

It was the fifth rehab start for Salazar, who threw on Tuesday night for AA Akron, throwing three innings. He threw 58 pitches while allowing one run on three hits with four strikeouts.

The Indians have a decision to make with Salazar, who can stay on his rehab assignment for 30 days.

A lot of that could depend on what the future holds for Trevor Bauer, as well as Corey Kluber and his progress back to the big league roster.
