Indians | Carlos Santana leading off again

Wed, 04 May 2016 11:14:51 -0700

Cleveland Indians 1B Carlos Santana is leading off for the second straight day Wednesday, May 4. OF Marlon Byrd is sitting out with OF Lonnie Chisenhall hitting seventh.

Fantasy Tip: Santana isn't your typical leadoff hitter, and it trumps a lot of his fantasy value. He has a .238-4-12 line on the season, and he's really not a great DFS start in this spot. Chisenhall is hitting .200 in 25 at-bats and doesn't possess a ton of upside against Anibal Sanchez.

Indians | Rajai Davis, Lonnie Chisenhall sitting

Tue, 03 May 2016 11:26:49 -0700

Cleveland Indians OFs Rajai Davis and Lonnie Chisenhall are not in the starting lineup Tuesday, May 3. OF Marlon Byrd is in right field and hitting seventh, while OF Tyler Naquin is starting in center field and batting ninth against Detroit Tigers SP Justin Verlander.

Fantasy Tip: Neither Byrd nor Naquin are outstanding picks for daily rosters, but Byrd does have six hits in 13 at-bats against Verlander with a home run. Naquin has handled his own in 48 at-bats (.333 average). Both should be considered midrange outfield options as sleepers.

Indians | Lonnie Chisenhall has three hits

Sat, 30 Apr 2016 23:36:55 -0700

Cleveland Indians OF Lonnie Chisenhall had three hits Saturday, April 30, in a 4-3 loss to the Philadelphia Phillies.

Fantasy Tip: Chisenhall scored twice and lifted his batting average to .227. He is showing signs of life following much of the first month spent on the disabled list, but Chisenhall is streaky and is the type of player better suited for daily leagues.

Indians | Lonnie Chisenhall has strained neck

Wed, 27 Apr 2016 14:54:30 -0700

Cleveland Indians OF Lonnie Chisenhall (neck) is dealing with a strained neck after diving in the outfield Tuesday, April 26. However, he's expected to be OK after the Indians' off day Thursday, April 28.

Fantasy Tip: Chisenhall could be back in the lineup Friday against Phillies starter Adam Morgan. Check back to make sure he's in there, but Chisenhall could be a nice low-priced sleeper pick against a very hittable pitcher in a hitter's haven Friday night.

Indians | Three Tribe regulars sitting out

Wed, 27 Apr 2016 14:42:12 -0700

Cleveland Indians 3B Juan Uribe and OFs Lonnie Chisenhall and Rajai Davis are not in the starting lineup Wednesday, April 27. 3B Jose Ramirez is at the hot corner and is batting seventh, OF Marlon Byrd is starting in right field and is hitting eighth, while OF Tyler Naquin sees the start in center field and is batting ninth against Minnesota Twins SP Jose Berrios.

Fantasy Tip: The Tribe is facing a top pitching prospect making his major league debut in Berrios, so their is plenty of risk and reward for all three players in daily formats. However, with all three near the bottom of the lineup, they're more of desperation deep sleeper picks.

Indians | Yan Gomes, Lonnie Chisenhall out

Sun, 24 Apr 2016 08:31:48 -0700

Cleveland Indians C Yan Gomes and OF Lonnie Chisenhall are not in the starting lineup against Detroit Tigers SP Shane Greene Sunday, April 24. OF Marlon Byrd will play right field and bat sixth, while C Roberto Perez starts behind the plate and bats ninth.

Fantasy Tip: Gomes had five RBI Saturday but is receiving the day off because the club is playing a day game following a night game, while Chisenhall has collected just two hits in his first 16 at-bats since coming off the disabled list. Byrd has two home runs and five RBI in 36 at-bats this year and is worth considering as a value play for daily fantasy contests, while Perez should strictly be viewed as a source of salary cap relief.

Wed, 20 Apr 2016 22:19:28 -0700

Cleveland Indians OF Lonnie Chisenhall (wrist) was hitless in three at-bats in his regular season debut Wednesday, April 20, against the Seattle Mariners.

Indians | Lonnie Chisenhall hitting seventh

Wed, 20 Apr 2016 11:32:55 -0700

Cleveland Indians OF Lonnie Chisenhall is hitting seventh Wednesday, April 20, fresh off the disabled list. OF Jose Ramirez is leading off, and OF Marlon Byrd and OF Rajai Davis are sitting out.

Fantasy Tip: Ramirez is hitting .300 and could be worth a low-end flyer against Taijuan Walker. Give Chisenhall a game or two to get his feet wet before considering him in DFS.

Indians | Lonnie Chisenhall off the DL

Wed, 20 Apr 2016 11:07:43 -0700

Cleveland Indians OF Lonnie Chisenhall (forearm) was activated from the 15-day disabled list Wednesday, April 20, and OF Collin Cowgill was optioned to Class AAA Columbus in a corresponding move.

Fantasy Tip: Chisenhall figures to platoon in one of the corner outfield spots, most likely right field with Marlon Byrd. Byrd's value takes a slight hit as a result. Chisenhall doesn't excel in any one area and is mainly a candidate for AL-only leagues and for cushy daily matchups.
