Oakland A's @ Cleveland Indians
Salazar’s biggest weakness has always been allowing home runs and that problem has popped up again this year, despite some incredible strikeout numbers and even an improved groundball rate.
Battling the Oakland A’s could be just what he needs. Coming into today’s matchup, the A’s are 11th in the American League in home runs and 5th in groundball percentage. Their lineup does not strike out a dramatic amount (17.5% of the time, 13th in the AL), but Salazar has already proved he can strikeout just about anyone.
