Mat Latos hoped to get on a bullpen mound by week's end if he reached 120 feet in long-toss, but manager Bryan Price would like Latos to stretch out some more.
Price is being cautious here, but as the Reds pitching coach the last few seasons, he knows Latos pretty well. Of course Latos wants to get back on the mound quickly; he's a competitor. But Price is looking at the long-term and will win out in the end. Be patient, Latos owners. His time will come soon enough.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.
