Sophomore pitcher of interest, Danny Salazar, struggles again on Thursday

Danny Salazar took the mound on Thursday, April 17 for the third time as the Cleveland Indians took on the Detroit Tigers.

These early season woes are reminiscent of last season, when the Tribe went 8-13 out of the gate. What has also been a parallel to last year is the top of the batting order’s inability to produce for the Tribe. Specifically, I am talking about Asdrubal Cabrera...

On Asdrubal Cabrera, Francisco Lindor and wanting good things too soon
