Indians activate Danny Salazar from the disabled list

2 Comments

The Indians announced on Tuesday that starter Danny Salazar was activated from the 10-day disabled list. He will start on Tuesday night against the White Sox, but he will be limited to 40-50 pitches.

Salazar, 27, landed on the 10-day disabled list two weeks ago with inflammation in his right elbow. He returns holding a 4.30 ERA and a 128/38 K/BB ratio in 92 innings.

The Indians are surging, having won each of their last 12 games while increasing their first-place lead in the AL Central to 12 games over the Twins.

Ken Rosenthal reports that the Phillies are talking to the Blue Jays about outfielder Curtis Granderson.

Rosenthal says that the Phillies are looking at Granderson as a bench bat and fourth outfielder to be deployed against righties. Granderson, 37, is hitting .230/.337/.417 with nine homers and 29 RBI over 81 games this season, substantially better against righties. Against lefties he’s a clear liability.

Granderson was traded at last year’s deadline too, from the Mets to the Dodgers, but cratered badly after arriving in L.A. and was a non-entity in the playoffs.
