Indians summon Salazar from minors
The Cleveland Indians recalled right-hander Danny Salazar from Columbus and optioned right-hander C.C. Lee to Triple-A before Tuesday night's game against the Minnesota Twins in Minneapolis.
Salazar has made eight starts for the Indians this season and posted a 1-4 record with a 5.53 ERA. He was optioned May 16 to Columbus, where he posted a 3-6 record with a 4.02 ERA and two complete games in 10 starts.
Indians right-hander Justin Masterson is also hoping to rejoin the team soon, but manager Terry Francona said Masterson will make one more start in the minors on his rehab assignment before returning.
Masterson, who was placed on the disabled list with right knee inflammation in early July, pitched five innings for Columbus on Sunday and gave up two runs and five hits while striking out six and walking two batters.
In 19 starts this year for the Indians, Masterson has a 4-6 record with a 5.51 ERA. He was an American League All-Star in 2013.
