The AL Central-leading Indians say Salazar will get a platelet-rich plasma injection on Tuesday and stop throwing for approximately 10 days. The timeline provided by the team indicates he could return for the playoffs, but any setback could shelve Salazar for the year.
The 23-year-old Salazar is 11-6 with a 3.87 ERA in 25 starts. He pitched four innings Friday at Minnesota before he was pulled because of forearm tightness.
