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.
