Indians | Giovanny Urshela could play Thursday

Wed, 30 Sep 2015 17:51:10 -0700

Cleveland Indians 3B Giovanny Urshela (shoulder) could return to the starting lineup against the Minnesota Twins Thursday, Oct. 1.

Fantasy Tip: Urshela ($3,000, 6.0% of cap) has been sidelined since Sept. 17, due to soreness in his right shoulder. He is only hitting .222 with six home runs in 257 at-bats this season, including a .194 mark during the month of September, and is not a great FantasyScore option.

Indians | Giovanny Urshela could be shut down

Tue, 29 Sep 2015 13:42:54 -0700

Cleveland Indians 3B Giovanny Urshela (shoulder) could be shut down for the rest of the year because of a sore right shoulder.

Fantasy Tip: Urshela ($3,000, 6.0% of cap) hasn't played since Sept. 17 and is hitting just .194 (6-for-31) with a home run and five RBI this month. Avoid him everywhere even if he does make it back into the lineup.

Indians | Chris Johnson sitting against Royals

Mon, 14 Sep 2015 12:29:54 -0700

Cleveland Indians 3B Chris Johnson is not in the starting lineup Monday, Sept. 14. 3B Giovanny Urshela is starting at third base and batting eighth against Kansas City Royals SP Edinson Volquez Monday.

Fantasy Tip: Johnson ($3,600, 7.2% of cap) is 16-for-46 since joining Cleveland, but he has just three runs and two RBI, so the counting stats still aren't there. Johnson is a fringe fantasy asset in deep mixed leagues, and likely should be left to AL-only and cavernous mixed formats. Urshela ($3,000, 6.0% of cap) owns a .600 OPS through 75 games this season, and he offers little upside for FantasyScore players Monday.

Indians | Chris Johnson sitting vs. Tigers

Thu, 10 Sep 2015 14:55:39 -0700

Cleveland Indians 3B Chris Johnson is not in the starting lineup Thursday, Sept. 10. 3B Giovanny Urshela is starting at third base and batting ninth against Detroit Tigers SP Alfredo Simon Thursday.

Fantasy Tip: Make sure to avoid Johnson ($3,600, 7.2% of cap) in all fantasy formats Thursday. The veteran has a .333 batting average over 12 games with Cleveland, but he still doesn't have a home run or RBI. Johnson is a low-end fantasy option in all formats. Urshela ($3,000, 6.0% of cap) is a low-priced flier for FantasyScore contests due to a potentially strong matchup against Simon ($6,200, 12.4% of cap) Thursday.

Indians | Giovanny Urshela not starting

Sun, 06 Sep 2015 07:44:34 -0700

Cleveland Indians 3B Giovanny Urshela is not in the starting lineup against Detroit Tigers SP Justin Verlander Sunday, Sept. 6. SS Jose Ramirez will start at third base and is batting eighth.

Fantasy Tip: Urshela ($3,000, 6.0% of cap) probably will return to the lineup in one of the next few games. Ramirez ($2,900, 5.8% of cap) has only two hits in his last 11 games and is not a great option for owners on FantasyScore.

Indians | Chris Johnson draws into the lineup

Wed, 02 Sep 2015 13:39:08 -0700

Cleveland Indians 3B Chris Johnson is starting at third base and batting seventh against Toronto Blue Jays SP R.A. Dickey Wednesday, Sept. 2. 3B Giovanny Urshela is not in the starting lineup Wednesday.

Fantasy Tip: Urshela ($3,000, 6.0% of cap) is hitting just .223 this season, so he could lose a few at-bats down the stretch to Johnson ($3,600, 7.2% of cap). Johnson made a pinch-hit appearance Tuesday, Sept. 1, but this will be his first start since returning from the disabled list. It isn't a plus-matchup, either, so he likely should be avoided at FantasyScore Wednesday.

Indians | Giovanny Urshela will not start

Mon, 31 Aug 2015 14:03:16 -0700

Cleveland Indians 3B Giovanny Urshela is not in the starting lineup against Toronto Blue Jays SP David Price Monday, Aug. 31. SS Mike Aviles will start at third base and is batting ninth in the lineup.

Fantasy Tip: Urshela ($3,000, 6.0% of cap) likely will return to the lineup in the near future. Aviles ($3,100, 6.2% of cap) has six hits in his last 10 games and is not the best option for owners on FantasyScore.

Indians | Giovanny Urshela sitting

Wed, 26 Aug 2015 11:49:35 -0700

Cleveland Indians 3B Giovanny Urshela is not in the starting lineup Wednesday, Aug. 26. SS Jose Ramirez is starting at the hot corner and hitting ninth against Milwaukee Brewers SP Jimmy Nelson.

Fantasy Tip: Nelson has been quite good in the second half for the Brewers, and Ramirez ($2,900, 5.8% of cap) doesn't have much to show at the plate this season, with a .204 average (47-for-230) with only two home runs and 16 RBI. Look elsewhere on FantasyScore.

Indians | Giovanny Urshela not in the lineup

Sat, 22 Aug 2015 08:10:54 -0700

Cleveland Indians 3B Giovanny Urshela is not in the starting lineup against New York Yankees SP Luis Severino Saturday, Aug. 22. SS Jose Ramirez will start at third base and is batting eighth in the lineup.

Fantasy Tip: Urshela ($3,000, 6.0% of cap) should return to the lineup in the near future. Ramirez ($2,900, 5.8% of cap) has seen time at different positions this season and has six hits in the last four games. Owners could consider using Ramirez in their lineups, but he is hitting only .211 on the season.

Indians | Giovanny Urshela back in lineup

Wed, 19 Aug 2015 14:40:06 -0700

Cleveland Indians 3B Giovanny Urshela (shoulder) is back in the starting lineup and is hitting eighth against Boston Red Sox SP Joe Kelly Wednesday, Aug. 19.

Fantasy Tip: Urshela ($3,000, 6.0% of cap) doesn't peak the interest of many daily gamers, especially while fresh off a nagging injury and while hitting near the bottom of the batting order.
