Odrisamer Despaigne dazzled in his MLB debut Monday with seven innings of shutout ball as the Padres defeated the Giants 6-0.
The Cuban defector put on a surprising show in his debut holding a Giants team that has been one of the best home hitting teams in all of baseball to just four hits without issuing a walk while striking out one. Despaigne was filling in for the injured Andrew Cashner and could possibly be in line to make another start this weekend at home against the DBacks, but that decision has yet to be made official.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.
