Salas was released by Atlanta on Monday.

EDGE Analysis

Salas inked a minor-league deal with the Braves on July 16, but he lasted less than a month with his new team. He allowed eight runs on 14 hits while striking out nine across six innings out of the bullpen at Triple-A Gwinnett.

Salas signed a minor-league contract with the Braves on Monday and was assigned to Triple-A Gwinnett.

EDGE Analysis

Salas had been with Arizona all season, posting a mediocre 4.50 ERA in 40 innings, but was released Monday. He'll have a chance to work his was back to the big leagues with the Braves, though he'll likely be in a low-leverage role if and when he makes it.

The Diamondbacks released Salas on Monday.

EDGE Analysis

After being designated for assignment over the weekend, Salas passed through waivers unclaimed, but the Diamondbacks apparently had no interest in stashing him in the minors. Salas is now a free agent and will likely look for an opportunity with a team that can present him with the easiest path back to the big leagues.

Salas was designated for assignment on Friday.

EDGE Analysis

Randall Delgado (shoulder) was activated from the 60-day disabled list, so the Diamondbacks needed to clear a spot on the 40-man roster, and Salas was the casualty. He had a 4.50 ERA and just 30 strikeouts in 40 innings out of the big-league bullpen.

Salas gave up a run on two hits and a walk over one inning of relief in Sunday's 9-6 loss to the Giants.

EDGE Analysis

Salas has been a part of eight decisions out of the bullpen this season and has notched four wins, but beyond that, he's not offering much from a fantasy perspective. His 6.8 K/9 is decidedly below average for a reliever, and his 3.72 ERA and 1.27 WHIP aren't nearly good enough to move the needle much, even in NL-only formats. He'll continue to see most of his appearances for the Diamondbacks in middle relief or mop-up situations.

Salas recorded his fourth win of the season after giving up one run in 1.1 innings in Tuesday's 13-8 victory over the Pirates.

EDGE Analysis

Salas has already factored into eight decisions through 30 relief appearances this season, but aside from the four wins, there isn't much in his profile to get excited about from a fantasy standpoint. He's striking out only 7.2 batters per nine innings and has proven far too hittable, with opposing batters slashing .326/.407/.732 against him.

Salas tossed 1.1 scoreless innings of relief in Monday's 4-2 loss to the Brewers. He gave up one hit and struck out two.

EDGE Analysis

After surrendering 10 runs over a five-game span earlier this month, Salas seems to have righted the ship of late with three consecutive scoreless appearances. That being said, Salas' flyball tendencies and mediocre strikeout rate make him a fairly volatile reliever, so don't expect manager Torey Lovullo to regularly rely on the 32-year-old in high-leverage spots.

Salas notched his second hold of the season after retiring both of the batters he faced Tuesday in the Diamondbacks' 8-5 win over the Dodgers in 12 innings.

EDGE Analysis

Salas was the first of eight relievers to take the hill for the Diamondbacks on the night, coming on for starter Zack Godley with two outs and one on in the sixth inning. After striking out Austin Barnes to end the threat, Salas came back out for the bottom of the seventh and induced a Chris Taylor flyout before giving way to Jorge De La Rosa for a lefty-on-lefty matchup. Salas is expected to see most of his use this season in the middle innings, so don't expect him to regularly be in the mix for holds.

Salas gave up a hit and struck out a batter during a scoreless seventh inning in the Diamondbacks' 9-1 win over the Dodgers on Saturday.

EDGE Analysis

With four consecutive scoreless appearances and a 1.69 ERA and 0.94 WHIP over 10.2 innings this season, Salas has been a dependable relief arm through the first two-plus weeks of the campaign. While Brad Boxberger, Archie Bradley and Yoshihisa Hirano are the clear top three relievers in the bullpen, Salas is probably the next man in the pecking order and will continue to see ample usage in middle relief. Though he's already picked up two wins, Salas doesn't profile as a particularly intriguing fantasy option due to his low strikeout rate and the issues he has had with limiting home runs in past seasons.

Salas was credited with the win in the Diamondbacks' 8-7 victory Tuesday over the Dodgers in 15 innings. He tossed the final three frames for Arizona, giving up one run on three hits and two walks.

EDGE Analysis

Salas was on the hook for the loss after giving up an RBI single to Chase Utley in the top half of the 15th, but his teammates bailed him out with two runs in the bottom of the inning to get the right-hander into the win column. After throwing 84 pitches over the past three days, Salas seems unlikely to be available for the final two games of Arizona's series with Los Angeles.
