Indians | Giovanny Urshela's hit streak at nine

Tue, 30 Jun 2015 20:16:31 -0700

Cleveland Indians 3B Giovanny Urshela went 1-for-4 with a home run and three RBIs Tuesday, June 30, against the Tampa Bay Rays to extend his hitting streak to nine games.

Fantasy Tip: Urshela ($3,000; or 6.0% of cap) has emerged as a reliable FantasyScore option, especially at this price level. He is 9-for-30 (.300) with two runs scored, a homer and three RBIs during the nine-game run. He won't hit for a lot of power, but he'll pick up a few points here and there.

Indians | Giovanny Urshela will not start

Sun, 21 Jun 2015 08:05:37 -0700

Cleveland Indians 3B Giovanny Urshela is not in the starting lineup against Tampa Bay Rays SP Alex Colome Sunday, June 21. SS Mike Aviles will start at third base and is batting seventh in the lineup.

Fantasy Tip: Urshela ($2,800, 5.6% of cap) likely will return to the lineup in the near future. Aviles ($3,200, 6.4% of cap) has picked up at least one hit in six of his last nine games but has recorded only one RBI in June. Owners on FantasyScore could consider using Aviles in the lineup but may be able to find better options to use.

Indians | Giovanny Urshela taking over third?

Fri, 12 Jun 2015 14:17:10 -0700

Cleveland Indians 3B Giovanny Urshela has started three of the past four games at third base, including against Detroit Tigers SP David Price Friday, June 12. Urshela is batting eighth.

Fantasy Tip: Urshela ($2,500, 5.0% of cap) warrants attention in AL-only and cavernous mixed leagues, as it appears he has a shot to take the everyday third base job and run with it. He hit his first major league home run Thursday, and he showed solid plate skills with a .275/.301/.475 slash line with Class AAA Columbus. Still, keep your expectations in check in all formats, and FantasyScore players should view Urshela as nothing more than a source of cap relief at this point. Fade him without concern against Price Friday, too.

Indians | Giovanny Urshela with first big-league homer

Thu, 11 Jun 2015 14:49:18 -0700

Cleveland Indians 3B Giovanny Urshela had two hits, including his first major league home runs in a winning effort over the Seattle Mariners Thursday, June 11. Urshela was called up from Class AAA Columbus earlier this week. He is now 2-for-8 with three RBI in his first three games.

Fantasy Tip: Urshela ($2,500, 5.0% of cap) was hitting .275 (22-for-80) with three home runs and nine RBI with Columbus before being called up. He has double-digit homer power but not much speed to speak of. Consider him only a target for AL-only leagues as corner infield depth. At FantasyScore, he'll be a low-end option.

Indians | Giovanny Urshela making debut Tuesday

Tue, 09 Jun 2015 11:41:59 -0700

Cleveland Indians 3B Giovanny Urshela is making his debut Tuesday, June 9, against the Seattle Mariners. He is eighth in the lineup.

Fantasy Tip: Urshela ($2,500, 5.0 of cap) takes over for Lonnie Chisenhall, who was optioned to Class AAA. He will get every chance to prove himself in the bigs, but don't put him in your lineup until he's had a few at-bats to prove himself.

Indians | Lonnie Chisenhall sent to minors

Mon, 08 Jun 2015 00:32:09 -0700

Cleveland Indians 3B Lonnie Chisenhall was optioned to Class AAA Columbus on Sunday, June 7. In a corresponding move, INF Giovanny Urshela was recalled by the parent club.

Fantasy Tip: Chisenhall ($2,400, 4.8% of cap) has barely hit above the Mendoza line, and the last 25 games have been even worse. Chisenhall had a .165 batting average in that stretch, so all indications are he will stay at Class AAA barring injury. We may not have seen the last of Chisenhall in Cleveland, but his days as a regular player may have come to an end.
