Cleveland Indians vs. Cincinnati Reds

Danny Salazar seems like the only sure thing in our rotation these days, and even then you never really know what you're going to get. last time out Danny had maybe the most Salazarian game of the season so far, going just five innings but managing to strike out ten (!) and walk six (!!) while giving up just one earned run in an eventual loss to Houston. I'd take another ten K's from the 'Dzar today, but hopefully with a better end result. The Reds counter with Alfredo Simon, who is really pretty bad. He enters today's game with an ERA over eight, and has given up nine homers in just 27 innings of work this year. Time for Yan to make it four games in a row?
