CLEVELAND — The Indians placed right-hander Danny Salazar, who hasn’t won since July 19, on the paternity list Monday.

Salazar had a strong first half and made the American League All-Star team. He was placed on the 15-day disabled list with a sore elbow Aug. 2 and allowed nine runs in five innings over two starts after being activated.

Salazar gave up two runs while striking out 10 in 5 1/3 innings in a loss to Texas on Sunday. He is 11-6 with a 3.88 ERA in 23 starts.

Right-hander Shawn Armstrong was recalled from Triple-A Columbus and will work out of the bullpen.
