Drafted in the 10th round (296th overall) by the Milwaukee Brewers in 2014 (signed for $15,000)
The 22-year-old Salas has bounced between the bullpen and starting at Miami and did not sign as a 38th-round pick of the Twins last year. In March, he became just the 23rd pitcher in NCAA DIvision I history to throw a perfect game, but consistency continues to elude him. He sometimes pitches at 87-90 mph, other times at 90-93 and touching 94. He has plus sink from an easy arm action and arm slot that was lowered in the last year. His top secondary offering is a slider that offers at least average potential, pairing with a below-average changeup. Salas has more control than command and a career walk rate of 2.5 per nine with 6.6 strikeouts per nine. The 6-foot-4, 227-pounder has an extra-large frame and strong, durable build. He profiles as a sinker/slider reliever.
