Jonathan Broxton picked up his fourth save of the season with a perfect ninth inning against the Pirates on Thursday. He had one strikeout.
Broxton continues to prove his mettle with yet another scoreless appearance. He's now made five scoreless appearances (five innings) this season and has given up three hits and three walks with five strikeouts. He'll move to a primary set-up role once Aroldis Chapman makes his way back, but for now, continue to harvest those saves he provides.ANALYST: Howard Bender
The Indians recalled Danny Salazar from Triple-A Columbus Saturday.
The expected move was announced Thursday after the Tribe felt they needed to push Carlos Carrasco (head/jaw) back to Monday. Salazar was dominant in his one Triple-A start, and as Fantasy Alarm's Brad Costilo noted earlier in the week, Salazar was very solid in his final 12 starts [of 2014], limiting opposing hitters to a .255 average/.668 OPS while striking out 1/4 of the batters he faced.
