Indians’ Salazar back IL with groin injury after 1 game


CLEVELAND (AP) — Cleveland Indians pitcher Danny Salazar returned to the injured list with a strained right groin, one day after appearing in his first game in two years.

Salazar, troubled by injuries to his right arm the last two seasons, pitched Thursday for the first time since the 2017 Division Series. He allowed two runs in four innings against Houston. Afterward, he said the groin bothered him during the game.

Salazar made the All-Star team in 2016, but has been dealing with injuries since. He didn’t pitch last season and had shoulder surgery last July.

Pitcher Tyler Olson has been placed on the 10-day IL because of a non-baseball medical condition. Hunter Wood and Phil Maton were recalled from Triple-A Columbus.
