How can I be expected to work these next few days?!?
The Indians right-hander pitched Sunday night during a team workout and hopefully will be ready to go for the World Series. Salazar says he feels great, so that’s a solid start. From Paul Hoynes:
"We'll evaluate Danny after he throws his sim game," said pitching coach Mickey Callaway. "I expect him, if he gets through this OK, to be available at some point in the World Series."
When Salazar took the mound Sunday night, Wild Thing blared over the sound system at Progressive Field. Front office employees, sitting behind the plate, cheered and crowd noise was bumped into the ballpark.
Salazar faced his teammates and each one was introduced to simulate game conditions. Roberto Perez, the first batter Salazar faced, homered to right field. But Salazar looked good for the rest of the outing.
Corey Kluber will start the Indians' first World Series game in 19 years on Tuesday night. That, we know. Much else, we do not.
A text message goof-up could have lead to some hurt feelings.
Tomlin’s dad is paralyzed from the chest down due to a rare condition called an arteriovenous malformation but arrangements have been made to get him to Chicago for Game 3.
