Cleveland Indians 3B Lonnie Chisenhall is not in the starting lineup Monday, April 27. SS Mike Aviles is starting at third base and hitting second in the batting order against Kansas City Royals SP Jason Vargas.
Fantasy Tip: Aviles ($2,000, 4.0% of cap) isn't a bad low-priced shortstop option today at FantasyScore as a sleeper, especially hitting near the top of the Tribe's order. Vargas has struggled of late for the Royals.

Cleveland Indians SS Mike Aviles is starting at shortstop and batting second in the order Sunday, April 26, against the Detroit Tigers.
Fantasy Tip: Aviles ($2,000, 4.0% of cap) has one home run and a .250 batting average in 32 plate appearances this season. Aviles has hit .274 in his career against left-handed pitchers, and he'll make for a decent value against Tigers left-hander Kyle Lobstein on FantasyScore.

Cleveland Indians OF Michael Bourn is not in the starting lineup Monday, April 20. SS Mike Aviles is starting in center field and hitting second in the batting order against Chicago White Sox SP John Danks. 2B Jason Kipnis moves up to the leadoff spot Monday as a result.
Fantasy Tip: Aviles ($2,000, 4.0% of cap), who has one home run in 22 at-bats to begin the year, becomes an attractive FantasyScore option at shortstop in order to save money for the rest of your lineup. Danks has struggled in the early going in 2015, and the southpaw allowed righties to hit .275 with 22 of his 25 home runs allowed in 2014.

Cleveland Indians 3B Lonnie Chisenhall is not in the lineup Tuesday, April 14, against the Chicago White Sox. 3B Mike Aviles starts against White Sox SP Jose Quintana.
Fantasy Tip: Chisenhall ($2,300, 4.6% of cap) looks like he's getting a regular night out of the lineup. Aviles ($2,000, 4% of cap) is a light hitter so it's recommended you go elsewhere or find a similar third baseman to save some money.

Cleveland Indians 3B Mike Aviles is starting in left field Wednesday, April 8. He's replacing OF Michael Brantley (back) and will hit ninth.
Fantasy Tip: Aviles ($2,700, 5.4% of cap) is shortstop eligible in FantasyScore games. Given the dearth of talent at the position and Aviles low cost, he'll be a daily game consideration as long as Brantley remains out of the lineup.
