Salazar, Ramirez updates, etc.
The Clippers did activate Danny Salazar (right triceps) from the disabled list today to start the 6:05 p.m. game against the Scranton/Wilkes-Barre RailRiders in Huntington Park.
Pitcher Gabriel Arias, the winner in last night's game against the RailRiders, was transferred to double-A Akron in the corresponding roster move.
Salazar was placed on the DL on June 2 and hasn't pitched since May 30. He strained the triceps while working out between starts. Clippers manager Chris Tremie said that Salazar will have a pitch limit of "about 75."
Middle infielder Jose Ramirez will miss a third consecutive game with a hamstring issue. He has not participated in any on-field activities since he suffered the injury in the opener of the homestand. Tremie said that Ramirez might take batting practice on Monday. "If not then, he'll try (Tuesday)," he said.
The Clippers are trying to complete a four-game sweep of the RailRiders. They have won 10 straight against Scranton/W-B.
Buffalo comes to Columbus on Monday to begin a four-game series at 7:05 p.m. Tyler Cloyd (3-4) is pitching for the Clippers against Deck McGuire (3-0).
