Danny Salazar was placed on the 10-day injured list Friday with a right groin strain, Mandy Bell of MLB.com reports.
Salazer pitched four innings on Thursday and had to be pulled with groin soreness and finds himself back on the IL. There is no timetable for his return and fantasy owners should keep an eye on updates.
Cleveland Indians right-hander Danny Salazar allowed two runs over four innings in a 7-1 loss to the Astros on Thursday. He struck out two in the outing.
Salazar was making his first appearance on an MLB mound since the 2017 playoffs. While the results were decent, Salazar wasn't able to top 90 MPH with his fastball and injured his groin during the start. He will go for further evaluation on Friday. Expect the Indians to be extra cautious with Salazar.
Danny Salazar (shoulder) has progressed to throwing from 180 feet.
The 29-year-old has battled injuries throughout his major league career. This time he is working his way back from right-shoulder surgery he underwent last year. Salazar could return sometime around May but might be ticketed for the bullpen.
Danny Salazar underwent surgery on his throwing shoulder Monday. He will be shut down the next 12-to-16 weeks, thus missing the remainder of the 2018 season.
It's a lost season for Salazar, who's been sidelined with the shoulder injury. Hopefully, this means he'll be able to return healthy in 2019. However, he can be safely dropped in all formats he was held on the DL in redraft leagues.
Danny Salazar will undergo exploratory surgery on his ailing right shoulder, the Indians announced on Saturday.
Salazar has simply been unable to make any progress in his return from his shoulder injury, and he and the Indians are opting to take further steps to figure out exactly what the problem is. Fantasy owners will know more about his prognosis for recovery after the surgery, but if you were still holding out hope that Salazar would contribute this year, it's probably time to let that go.
