They've got bigger problems if Salazar is out for the rest of the year - and playoffs.  Granted, Kluber, Carrasco, Bauer, and Tomlin is a solid rotation for the playoffs, Salazar is better than the last two by a considerable margin when healthy.

They do.

But then they're much more expensive than they used to be.

Do they baby pitchers or what?

From Rotoworld.

09.15: Mike Clevinger allowed one run in four innings Thursday in his start against the White Sox. (Clevinger could finish out the year in the rotation with Danny Salazar out, and he should be ready to throw 100 pitches next time out after throwing 62 on Saturday and 85 today. He'll get the Royals next week.)

I activated him yesterday thinking he was ready to go five.

Was fighting a potential blister problem the inning he came out too.

The first and only hit against him came on a well-placed grounder in the sixth, as he collected his first major league win.

Walks were a problem and he left the game with one out in the sixth, leading 4-1.

"About the fourth I was looking to see who was coming up on the scoreboard and I was like, `Wait, there's no hits up there. It kind of took me aback for a second."

"It's storybook-esque," he said.

Sometimes the boxscore just doesn't tell whole the story. A more granular look at Clevinger's game last night.

08.04: Mike Clevinger allowed two runs in 4 1/3 innings Thursday in a no-decisionagainst the Twins. (Thanks to Joe Mauer, Clevinger managed to limit the damage from allowing seven hits and four walks to the 22 batters he faced. Mauer got on base all three times he faced Clevinger and, amazingly, was thrown out on the basepaths all three times. The last time Mauer was retired accounted for Clevinger's lone out in the fifth. Clevinger could stay in the rotation in place of the injured Danny Salazar, but that isn't settled yet.)

Mike Clevinger, rhp, Indians. The last thing the Indians need is another starting pitcher, but Clevinger is certainly giving them food for thought. The righthander, acquired from the Angels for reliever Vinnie Pestano in August 2014, improved to 8-0, 2.70 with six sterling innings Wednesday for Triple-A Columbus at Lehigh Valley (Phillies). After he joined the Cleveland organization, the Indians got Clevinger back to throwing the way he did as an amateur—to great success. Clevinger's fastball sits in the low to mid-90s and his hard slider is his best secondary offering.

He's now with the Tribe and BP left him off their Top Ten Prospects list but wildly differing opinions on pitchers are not that surprising.

From Sickels online comments this year: 3) Mike Clevinger, RHP, Grade B+: Age 24, Tommy John survivor stolen from Angels in 2014, posted 2.73 ERA with 145/40 K/BB in 158 innings in Double-A, command has improved tremendously over last three seasons and he has the stuff to back that up. Should be ready for rotation trial sometime in 2016. I will post full comment in discussion thread tomorrow.

I was able to get him in a dynasty league rule v draft....quite happy with such a glowing grade given.
