Looking at Danny Salazar's historical season
Before the 2013 season, the last impact starting pitcher Cleveland's farm system produced was Roberto Hernandez way back in 2007. Every elite-level starting pitcher since then was acquired from outside of the organization. That all changed in 2013 when Danny Salazar burst onto the scene. What Salazar did in his 10 regular season starts was nothing short of amazing. Jim Piascik delves into the numbers to show you just how amazing and what to expect from the right-hander in 2014.
