CLEVELAND – Indians pitcher Danny Salazar won’t pitch in Tuesday’s All-Star game for the American League, as his spot on the AL roster has been taken by White Sox starting pitcher José Quintana.
Salazar will attend the game with the rest of the All-Stars, and will still be able to see teammates Corey Kluber and Francisco Lindor hopefully get a chance to play in the game.
The Indians pitcher started Saturday’s 7-6 extra innings loss to the Yankees, meaning if he was going to pitch in the mid-Summer classic he would have been doing it on three days rest.
The official word from the Indians is he’s not pitching in the game due to ‘mild elbow soreness.’
This season Salazar has been fantastic, going 10-3 with a 2.75 ERA. There was many who felt he should start the game on Tuesday, but instead he will make his first start out of the All-Star break which is Tuesday, July 19th in Kansas City against the Royals.
