Gammons: Looking ahead at the Indians’ Big Four power arms

“Danny Baseball”? Nah, never mind.

as [Indians manager Terry] Francona., his coaches and special aides de camp like Jason Giambi have built a unique culture, so, too, they have put together what looking forward is arguably the biggest power rotation in the American League. When Danny Salazar shut out the Tigers Wednesday night, averaging more than 96.7, hitting 99.4, running his scoreless streak to 17 innings, it culminated a 22 game skein in which the Cleveland starters threw 131 1/3 innings, allowed 107 hits, posted a 2.12 earned run average, walked 36 and struck out 141…

No one in The Big Four is over 28 years old… [Corey] Kluber developed his mix of fastball command, cutters and creativity through the minor leagues. Salazar seemed headed towards front end stardom last season, then got off to such a bad start that he ended back in Columbus… [Trevor] Bauer, who has definite ideas on how he wants to pitch, has made tremendous strides in morphing some of his ideas to those the manager and staff believe necessary… [Carlos] Carrasco was [on] a bumpy shuttle from Cleveland to triple-A, starting to the bullpen and back… In his five starts since going back into the rotation, he has thrown his 97-99 [mph] from the outset, and the result has been 33 IP with 21 hits, 3 earned runs and an eye-popping 34-4 strikeout-walk ratio…

come March, there will be expectations for the Indians, largely because of that collaborative effort that is developing a pitching staff whose power arms should not only keep them in the 2015 AL Central race, but if they get to the post-season should play in October.

Indians move Carlos Carrasco to bullpen

As a result they will use Zach McAllister on three days’ rest tomorrow and, in all likelihood, Trevor Bauer will be called up to fill Carrasco’s spot in the rotation.

They really could have picked a better way to celebrate the 34-month anniversary of Carrasco’s most recent win as a starting pitcher.

Cutting Aaron Harang to keep Carrasco: Brilliant.
