08:17 PM ET 09.29 | The Cleveland Indians knocked off the Minnesota Twins 5-1 on Sunday to earn their first postseason birth since 2007. While it is uncertain which team the Indians will play host to - the Tampa Bay Rays and the Texas Rangers will play in a tiebreaker game on Monday night - one thing already certain is that 23-year-old Danny Salazar will be Cleveland's starting pitcher in the game on Wednesday. Salazar has only been in the major leagues for three months and has started a mere ten games. He is 2-3 on the year with an ERA of 3.12 and a WHIP of 1.13. He's struck out 65 batters in just 52 innings of work but has thrown more than 100 pitches in only one game.
