Indians | Jason Kipnis stuffs the box score

Sun, 17 Jul 2016 15:34:11 -0700

Cleveland Indians 2B Jason Kipnis finished 3-for-4, including a solo shot, with a walk and a steal in a win over the Minnesota Twins on Sunday, July 17.

Fantasy Tip: Kipnis' ninth-inning blast gave him 15 homers and 51 RBI for the season - both of which are top-six marks among all second basemen. The Arizona State product also boasts a .280 average and six steals to go along with 51 runs scored, so he's more than holding his own against the Jose Altuves and Ian Kinslers of the fantasy baseball world. Keep Kipnis' red-hot bat locked into lineups as Cleveland hits the road to visit the Kansas City Royals on Monday.

Indians | Juan Uribe scratched

Sun, 03 Jul 2016 09:25:54 -0700

Cleveland Indians 3B Juan Uribe (finger, wrist) was scratched from the starting lineup against Toronto Blue Jays SP J.A. Happ Sunday, July 3, because of an injured finger. SS Jose Ramirez will start at third base and is batting sixth, while 2B Jason Kipnis will start at second base and is batting second.

Fantasy Tip: Ramirez and Kipnis has posted terrific offensive numbers so far this season and should be starting candidates in all leagues.

Indians | Jason Kipnis, Tyler Naquin resting

Sun, 03 Jul 2016 08:24:18 -0700

Cleveland Indians 2B Jason Kipnis and OF Tyler Naquin are receiving the day off against Toronto Blue Jays SP J.A. Happ Sunday, July 3. INF Jose Ramirez is playing second base and batting second, while SS Francisco Lindor is back in the lineup as the No. 3 hitter. In addition, C Yan Gomes will start behind the plate and bat sixth, OF Abraham Almonte will bat seventh and play center field and 3B Juan Uribe (wrist) will play the hot corner and bat eighth.

Fantasy Tip: Ramirez and Lindor are viable options in all formats but Gomes is just 2-for-17 over the past week and is 1-for-7 in his career versus Happ, so he should be avoided this afternoon. Almonte was projected to be the club's regular center fielder entering 2016 but was forced to serve an 80-game suspension after testing positive for the drug Boldenone during spring training. He could push Tyler Naquin for regular playing time at the position going forward. Uribe should be viewed as nothing more than an inexpensive flier in DFS.

Indians | Jason Kipnis extends hitting streak

Thu, 30 Jun 2016 21:09:00 -0700

Cleveland Indians 2B Jason Kipnis extended his hitting streak to a season-high 12 games with a 2-for-3 night, including his 11th home run of the year, Thursday, June 30.

Fantasy Tip: Kipnis hit .286 with seven home runs and 29 RBI in the month of June and is now up to .271/.328/.452 on the season. With the Tribe rolling along with 13 straight wins, Kipnis has been a big contributor and is an excellent starting fantasy second baseman.

Indians | Juan Uribe back in lineup Sunday

Sun, 26 Jun 2016 08:34:31 -0700

Cleveland Indians 3B Juan Uribe is back in the starting lineup against Detroit Tigers SP Justin Verlander Sunday, June 26, with INF Jose Ramirez playing second base and INF/OF Michael Martinez playing left field. 2B Jason Kipnis (illness) and OF Rajai Davis are receiving the day off.

Fantasy Tip: Uribe is hitting just .196 over the past four weeks and is not a recommended fantasy option this afternoon. Martinez is 6-for-13 (.462) with a home run and two RBI over the past two weeks and can be viewed as a productive source of salary cap relief in DFS.

Indians | Jason Kipnis left with illness

Sat, 25 Jun 2016 16:38:20 -0700

Cleveland Indians 2B Jason Kipnis (illness) left the game Saturday, June 25, due to illness.

Fantasy Tip: Check his status Sunday because he's obviously a daily consideration in DFS. Jose Ramirez is a regular utility player anyway, and he could start at second with a low-end play consideration.
