Third Time is the Charm For Danny Salazar


Things clicked for Danny Salazar during his third season in the majors as he broke out in a huge way. He finished 2014 with a 14-10 record, 3.45 ERA, and averaged over a strikeout per inning.

Salazar's above-average strikeout rate played out beautifully over a full season as he fanned 195 across 185 innings. There were some growing pains along the way, but overall Salazar was fairly consistent month-to-month in innings, strikeouts, and walks allowed. On the other hand, his ERA waltzed around all season, never going below 2.53 or above 4.28. He did carry a lower ERA during the second half as opposed to the first, even with a mediocre September, so there's a chance he has already made the proper adjustments. His workhorse traits were on full display as he avoided falling victim to fatigue while also logging the most innings in a season in his professional career. Salazar has a lot to offer as our 26th-ranked starting pitcher going into 2016.
