Danny Salazar takes on Bruce Chen in the series finale for the Indians and Royals. Salazar is coming off a shortened start in Chicago, in which he pitched well but reached his pitch count, while Chen has had a solid year for Kansas City despite his recent rough outing against the Tigers. This will be Salazar’s first time facing the Royals in his career.
There are a lot of Indians hitters that have not had much success against Chen this season. Mike Aviles, Asdrubal Cabrera, Jason Kipnis, Ryan Raburn, Drew Stubbs, Yan Gomes and Michael Bourn are all hitless against him. Santana is hitting .333/.333/.500 against him, and Nick Swisher is hitting .500/.500/.500 off of Chen. The only other player to get a hit off of him this season is Michael Brantley, who is hitting .200/.333/.200 against Chen.
