Dodgers | Adrian Gonzalez gets a day off

Sun, 17 Jul 2016 12:05:51 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers 1B Adrian Gonzalez is not in the lineup against Arizona Diamondbacks SP Robbie Ray on Sunday, July 17. 1B/OF Scott Van Slyke will replace him in the field and bat cleanup. 2B Chase Utley, C Yasmani Grandal and OF Andrew Toles are also not starting, and will be replaced by INF Chris Taylor (hitting sixth), C A.J. Ellis (seventh) and newly promoted rookie SS/OF Zach Walters (eighth), respectively.

Fantasy Tip: Gonzalez remains a very good hitter (.287), but he has only homered twice and driven in 17 runs since the end of May, so he can be benched in most fantasy leagues. The same can be said for Utley, while Grandal emerged as a back-end starting catcher option with a strong first-half finish. None of the today's four replacements need to be considered outside of deep mixed or NL-only formats.

Dodgers | LAD bolsters outfield depth with trade

Sun, 10 Apr 2016 13:19:44 -0700

Cleveland Indians SS Zach Walters and OF James Ramsey were traded to the Los Angeles Dodgers in exchange for cash considerations on Sunday, April 10.

Fantasy Tip: Both players were recently designated for assignment, although Ramsey - a former first-round pick - could eventually find some regular at-bats in the Dodgers' injury-ravaged outfield while Carl Crawford and Andre Ethier are on the mend. Neither Walters nor Ramsey are worth consideration in fantasy at the moment, however.

Indians | Ryan Raburn to bereavement list

Tue, 11 Aug 2015 20:34:00 -0700

The Cleveland Indians placed OF Ryan Raburn on the bereavement list Tuesday, Aug. 11, following the death of his wife's grandmother, and the team recalled SS Zach Walters from Class AAA Columbus to take his roster spot.

Fantasy Tip: Raburn ($3,200, 6.4% of cap) is used sparingly, but he is occasionally a bargain-basement option in FantasyScore when the matchup is right and he is obviously starting.

Indians | Zach Walters optioned

Thu, 18 Jun 2015 11:46:06 -0700

Cleveland Indians SS Zach Walters was sent to Class AAA Columbus. In corresponding moves, RP Jeff Manship was promoted to the parent club and SP Shaun Marcum was designated for assignment Thursday, June 18.

Fantasy Tip: Ordinarily players like Walters ($1,500, 3.0% of cap) wouldn't merit much mention, but this appears to be a sign the club intends to play Francisco Lindor ($3,500, 7.0% of cap) and Mike Aviles ($3,200, 6.4% of cap) more often. Keep an eye on how this affects Lindor in particular.

Indians | Jason Kipnis out of lineup

Thu, 11 Jun 2015 06:22:17 -0700

Cleveland Indians 2B Jason Kipnis is out of the lineup Thursday, June 11, in favor of 2B Zach Walters.

Fantasy Tip: Walters is hitting eighth against lefty J.A. Happ. The switch-hitter is 2-for-21 (.095) this season, and we're passing on FantasyScore.

Indians | Zach Walters batting seventh vs. M's

Wed, 10 Jun 2015 14:23:21 -0700

Cleveland Indians SS Zach Walters is starting at third base and batting seventh against Seattle Mariners S Taijuan Walker Wednesday, June 10.

Fantasy Tip: Walters projects to see nearly everyday at-bats at third base, and he is worth a speculative add in AL-only leagues. It would be best to take a wait-and-see elsewhere, and especially in daily contests. Giovanny Urshela is Walters' only real competition for playing time currently.

Indians | Jose Ramirez sent to minors

Mon, 08 Jun 2015 00:37:38 -0700

Cleveland Indians SS Jose Ramirez was optioned to Class AAA Columbus on Sunday, June 7. The club recalled SS Zach Walters to the parent club in a corresponding move.

Fantasy Tip: Ramirez ($2,600, 5.2% of cap) should have seen the writing on the wall as Mike Aviles ($2,600, 5.2% of cap) has revived his career with the Indians. Ramirez had a .180 average at the time of his demotion. He can be removed from all daily consideration. You may even want to drop him from yearly leagues, because top prospect Francisco Lindor will likely be up later in the season and relegate Ramirez to the scrap heap.

Indians | Zach Walters in LF Monday

Mon, 18 May 2015 14:07:39 -0700

Cleveland Indians SS Zach Walters is starting in left field and hitting seventh in the batting order against Chicago White Sox SP Chris Sale Monday, May 18.

Fantasy Tip: Walters ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) is at the low-end of the shortstop pool and should be avoided in all daily games tonight against Sale.
