NILES, Ohio (WYTV) – Cleveland Indians starting pitcher and 2016 All-Star Danny Salazar will make a rehab start in the Valley on Tuesday when the Scrappers return home for three games.
Reports say Salazar will pitch for Mahoning Valley on Tuesday at 7:05 p.m. at Eastwood Field against Brooklyn. He will throw approximately 75 pitches.
The Indians demoted Salazar to the bullpen in late May, before he later landed on the disabled list with a shoulder issue. He’s 3-5 with a 5.40 ERA for Cleveland this season.
Salazar has made two rehab starts so far.
He pitched with Double-A Akron on July 1, allowing three runs in 1 2/3 innings. He then pitched Thursday with Triple-A Columbus, allowing three earned runs in 3 1/3 innings.
Salazar, 27, was named an AL All-Star last season when he went 11-6 with a 3.87 ERA.
Salazar has been in the Cleveland Indians system since 2007, but has never played for the Mahoning Valley Scrappers.
