Patrick Beverley was named to the NBA All-Defensive Second Team on Monday.
Beverley received the second most first team votes of any player named to the All-Defensive Second Team with 44 behind LeBron James' 54 first team votes. While most of us can care less who makes the second team of anything Beverley is an exception in part because it's a nice story in that he became just the second player to come up through the Developmental League and win All-Defensive honors (Avery Bradley of the Celtics was the other) and because Beverley is a good defender he should continue to see an increase in playing time again next season making him worth targeting in the mid- to late rounds come fantasy draft day.ANALYST: Michael Pichan
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.
