Indians | Jason Kipnis faded in first half

Mon, 13 Jul 2015 16:19:59 -0700

Cleveland Indians 2B Jason Kipnis went 12-for-57 over his last 15 games before the All-Star break. Kipnis still entered Monday, July 13, tied for the American League lead with 27 doubles, third in hits, sixth in runs scored and sixth in extra-base hits.

Fantasy Tip: Kipnis did enter the breakout with an absurd .369 BABIP - that is 50 points above his career average - and an ISO that is 20 points above his norm. While Kipnis has an outside shot at a 20/20 season, his owners may want to sell high before the batting average dips.

Indians | Brandon Moss sitting vs. Oakland

Sun, 12 Jul 2015 07:17:04 -0700

Cleveland Indians OF Brandon Moss is not in the starting lineup Sunday, July 12. SS Jose Ramirez draws into the lineup and is playing second base and batting ninth against Oakland Athletics SP Sonny Gray Sunday. 2B Jason Kipnis is serving as the designated hitter and leading off.

Fantasy Tip: Make sure to avoid Moss ($4,300, 8.6% of cap) in all fantasy formats Sunday. He enters the All-Star break with solid power totals (14 home runs and 46 RBI) but lackluster ratios (.221/.297/.429 slash line). Ramirez is nothing more than a dice roll Sunday, and FantasyScore players should likely look elsewhere.

Fantasy Tip: FantasyScore players have been getting great return lately on Kipnis ($5,500; or 11.0% of cap), especially at Progressive Field. He is hitting .421 (61-for-145) with 18 doubles, two triples, four homers, 20 RBI and a 1.169 OPS in Cleveland, and he has a 1.025 OPS against right-handed pitching. Remember that for FantasyScore going forward.

Indians | Jason Kipnis extends hitting streak

Wed, 24 Jun 2015 16:29:06 -0700

Cleveland Indians 2B Jason Kipnis extended his hitting streak to 19 games in a win Wednesday, June 24. He also extended his home hitting streak to 28 straight games, which is the longest at home for any player in team history since Miguel Dilone in 1980. Kipnis is batting .500 (54-for-108) with 17 doubles, three home runs and 15 RBI during his 28-game home hitting streak. It's the longest current home streak and best since Colorado Rockies OF Carlos Gonzalez hit in 29 straight home games in 2012. He went 1-for-3 in the game with two runs scored, two walks and a strikeout, and his season average now sits at .354.

Fantasy Tip: Kipnis ($5,500, 11.0% of cap) is a force to be reckoned with and can't be stopped right now. Continue riding the hot hand on FantasyScore unless he's facing a tough left-handed pitcher.
