It was a tale of two seasons for Salazar, who opened the year in the Indians rotation, going 1-4 with a 5.53 ERA in 8 starts from April 4 May 15 (40.2IP , 49H, 25E R, 17BB, 47K , .301 AVG ) before being sent to AAA Columbus on May 16...

Did spend 10 days back in Columbus, August 6-17, before returning for the remainder of the season...Allowed 3 ER or less in 13 of his final 16 starts with Cleveland. Danny's strong second half was highlighted with this first career complete game and shutout on September 3 vs. Detroit (9.0IP, 8H, 0R, 0BB, 9K, career-high 118P) ...Salazar became the first Indians pitcher to toss a CG shutout against Detroit since Jaret Wright on June 1, 1998 at Tiger Stadium - the first to do so in Cleveland since Orel Hershiser on June 5, 1995 ... According to MLB, Salazar (24 years, 235 days) became the youngest pitcher in the Majors dating back to at least 1914 to shut out the Tigers with 9+ K 's and zero walks. Fanned at least 7 batters in 9 of his 20 starts and averaged 9.8 strikeouts p er 9.0IP with a strikeout/ walk ratio of 3.43 ... His 9.8 SO /9.0IP would have been 5th in the A.L. just ahead of Felix Hernandez over a 162.0IP season... In his second start of April 10 at Chicago-AL, Salazar became the only pitcher in baseball's modern era (since 1900) to record 10 strikeouts in an outing lasting fewer than 4.0 comp lete innings (3.2 IP , 6 H, 5 R-E R, 2 BB, 10 SO , 2 HR, 1 W P , 93P , 18BF) ... Only 2 other hurlers have struck out 10 batters in exactly 4.0 IP: Boston's "Smoky" Joe Wood in 1909 and Seattle's Felix Hernandez in 2013 (tied his career-high and set season-high for single-game strikeouts). Posted a 6.04 E RA in 5 Ap ril starts (17E R/ 25.1IP , 5HR) and a 4.70 ERA in 3 May starts (8 ER/15.1 IP ) before being op tioned to AAA on May 16 ... With Columbus, he went 4-6 with a 3.71 E RA (60.2IP , 58H, 25 ER, 28BB, 76K ) from May 20-July 17 and one sp ot start on August 12 during his second, 10-day AAA stint...Struck out 9 batters in 6 of his 11 Triple-A starts and over his last 6 starts he posted an ERA of 2.13 (38.0IP , 27H, 9E R, 48K )...W orked at least 5.0IP in 9 of 11 starts. Through the first 30 starts of his career, he has gone 8-2 w/a 2.48 ERA (32 ER/116.1IP) when reaching the 5.0-inning mark (19 starts) ... When he fails to make it through 5.0 frames (11 starts): 0-9 with a 7.49 E RA (38 E R/45.2 IP ) ... Salazar reeled off a career-high 3 consecutive victories from July 22-August 1, scattering just 4 earned runs across a combined 18.0 innings (2.00 ERA) over that stretch...Over his first 8 starts upon returning for the 2nd half (7/22-9/3 shutout) he went 5-2 w/a 2.30 E RA to lower his season E RA from 5.53 to 3.80. Posted a 2014 club-high and career-best 21.0 consecutive scoreless innings from August 23-Sep t. 8 ... Over his last 4 starts from Sep t. 8-end of season he was 0-2 w/a 6.04 E RA (22.1IP , 27H, 15ER) ... Left-handed batters hit just .246 (41-167, .696 OPS) off him while righties hit .289 (76-263, .786 OPS)...Batters hit .275 (47-171) with runners on base, .288 (23-80) with RISP and .178 (27-152) when behind in the count.
