UPDATES & NEWS
Carlos Santana went 2-for-4 with a solo home run against the Tigers on Friday.
Santana has started to come around of late, going 8-for-20 (.400 BA) with two home runs, four RBI and four runs scored over his last six games. However, his recent efforts have not been enough to push him over the Mendoza Line, sitting on a .196 average with 10 home runs and 28 RBI through 224 at-bats. As long as he continues to show promise, there is a good chance he will turn things around as the season progresses based on his track record. ANALYST: Matthew Beck
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.
