TORONTO (AP) - Injured Cleveland right-hander Danny Salazar threw what appeared to be a simulated game Sunday night at Rogers Centre.

Salazar has been out since Sept. 9 with forearm issues. The All-Star is not on the roster for the Indians in the AL Championship Series against the Toronto Blue Jays, but he took the mound at the end of Cleveland's workout and threw to hitters.

The Indians lead the series 2-0 despite injuries to Salazar and fellow starter Carlos Carrasco. Game 3 is Monday night.

Manager Terry Francona had not mentioned that Salazar was scheduled to throw when he held his news conference earlier Sunday.

Salazar went 11-6 with a 3.87 ERA during the regular season.
