The pinnacle point of Salas’ major-league career came in just his second season, 2011, in which he would help the St. Louis Cardinals to a World Series championship. In fact, Salas appeared in three games against the Phillies in the 2011 NLDS, allowing only one run and two hits through 3 2/3 innings.
In 2019-20 Mexican Pacific Winter League Action, Salas has a perfect 0.00 ERA through 22 innings, striking out 23 batters while walking just four.
