Leave a comment

In a day seemingly filled with news that had to do with either injuries or apologies, here’s some more injury news. The Indians announced that pitcher Danny Salazar has been placed on the 10-day disabled list with a sore right shoulder. Outfielder Lonnie Chisenhall was also activated from the seven-day concussion DL.

Salazar, 27, was recently moved to the bullpen after 10 unsuccessful starts during which he compiled a 5.50 ERA. In 2 2/3 innings of relief, the right-hander gave up a run on four hits with no walks and four strikeouts.

Chisenhall, 28, suffered his concussion on May 22. He was hitting a productive .261/.333/.543 with six home runs and 22 RBI in 107 plate appearances.

MLB.com’s Mark Feinsand reports that there is some momentum in talks between the Mariners and free agent outfielder Jon Jay.

Jay, 32, hit .296/.374/.375 in 433 plate appearances with the Cubs last season, which is adequate. He’s heralded more for his defense and his ability to play all three outfield spots.

The Mariners are losing center fielder Jarrod Dyson to free agency and likely don’t want to rely on Guillermo Heredia next season, hence the interest in Jay. The free agent class for center fielders is otherwise relatively weak.
