Reds | Blake Wood nails down first save

Tue, 14 Jun 2016 20:07:55 -0700

Cincinnati Reds RP Blake Wood got himself into trouble with bases loaded in the ninth inning Tuesday, June 14, against the Atlanta Braves, but he worked out of a jam to secure his first save of the season.

Fantasy Tip: Tony Cingrani has struggled lately, but he was good enough in his most recent outing. This save chance for Wood shouldn't be viewed as any kind of change to the depth chart. Wood remains useful only in the very deepest of NL-only fantasy formats.

Indians | Nick Swisher, Carlos Santana to DL

Tue, 27 May 2014 13:07:46 -0700

The Cleveland Indians placed OF Nick Swisher (knee) on the 15-day disabled list with a left knee hyperextension Tuesday, May 27, and also put C Carlos Santana (concussion) on the 7-day concussion DL. In corresponding moves, the club recalled INF Jesus Aguilar and C George Kottaras from Triple-A Columbus and designated RP Blake Wood for assignment.

Fantasy Tip: Lonnie Chisenhall, who has really been hitting well this year, should take over full time at third base with Santana sidelined. Even when Santana returns, Chisenhall is a nice bat to own if he's still available on your waiver wire. It's unknown how the Tribe will replace Swisher at first, but the most likely scenario is that Ryan Raburn will see the majority of starts there while sharing with Aguilar. Consider adding Raburn in AL-only leagues.

Indians | Scott Atchison, Nyjer Morgan have contracts purchased

Sun, 30 Mar 2014 11:14:09 -0700

The Cleveland Indians have purchased the contracts of RP Scott Atchison and OF Nyjer Morgan from Triple-A Columbus.

Fantasy Tip: At one point, Atchison and Blake Wood were battling for the final spot in the Cleveland bullpen but both relievers ended up making the 25-man roster. Neither pitcher carries any fantasy value. On the other hand, Morgan might be worth a look in AL-only leagues, with OF Michael Bourn (hamstring) beginning the season on the disabled list.
