The starting rotation of the AL Central-leading Cleveland Indians took a hit on Monday, as the team announced pitcher Danny Salazar will miss the remainder of the 2018 season after undergoing arthroscopic surgery on his right shoulder in Dallas.

The 28-year-old won't throw for 12-to-16 weeks, according to the release.

Salazar, who hasn't pitched in a big-league game since Sept 27, 2017, had been a mainstay for the Indians in their rotation from his debut in 2013 until 2017, when he flip-flopped between starting and the bullpen.

He hasn't pitched for the Indians this season and is 38-33 with a 3.82 ERA during his five-year career, which includes a 10.5 strikeout-per-nine inning rate.
