    News: Salazar (1-2) allowed four runs on seven hits and three walks while striking out nine White Sox over five frames in Sunday's loss.
    Impact: Salazar battled command issues in the fifth, when he threw behind Jose Abreu with a two-seamer, then unintentionally hit the slugger with a changeup that sailed up and in. Two batters later, Avisail Garcia -- who entered the at-bat 0-for-8 in the series -- hammered Salazar's changeup to center field (with an exit velocity of 108 mph) for an RBI double. The fantastic strikeout rate (14.3 K/9) continued Sunday, but it was once again offset by wildness, as the right-hander now owns a career-worst 4.37 BB/9 through four starts. Salazar will look to improve his control in his next start Saturday versus Seattle.

    News: Salazar (1-1) allowed one run on seven hits while walking two and striking out seven over six innings in Monday's 3-1 win over Minnesota.
    Impact: He threw 63 of his 103 pitches for strikes to drop his season ERA to 3.57. Salazar retired 15 of the last 18 hitters he faced after allowing five hits and a walk in the first two innings. The 27-year-old features a nasty changeup that helps him rack up strikeouts regularly. After a four-run outing in his season debut, Salazar has gotten stingy, including fanning 27 hitters over 17.2 frames. He's rapidly developing into a front-end fantasy starter.

    News: Salazar finished six innings strong after a shaky start and the Indians beat the Minnesota Twins 3-1 on Monday night. Salazar (1-1) struck out seven and retired 15 of his last 18 batters after allowing five hits and one walk over a seven-batter stretch spanning the first two innings.
    Impact: After a rocky season debut, Salazar has a 2.25 ERA in his last two starts.
    Rotowire: Apr 12 / 6:42p ET
    News: Salazar (0-1) whiffed 11 while allowing two runs on four hits and two walks against the White Sox on Wednesday, only to be handed the loss.
    Impact: Opposing starter Derek Holland gave the Indians' offense nothing, and a late rally fell short, leaving Salazar winless despite 20 strikeouts in his first two starts. Salazar's fantasy owners will not be surprised to learn that he was a bit wild in this one, throwing a wild pitch and hitting a batter in addition to his two walks. The 27-year-old righty has a boatload of upside thanks to that strikeout ability, but he's still a work in progress in terms of pitching deep into games.
    StatsLLC: Apr 12 / 12:00a ET
    News: Salazar was a tough-luck loser Wednesday as he matched a career high with 11 strikeouts in six innings, giving up two runs and four hits with two walks in a 2-1 loss to the White Sox.
    Impact: Salazar has 20 strikeouts in 11 2/3 innings, and this outing was a big improvement from his season debut.
