The Cleveland Indians activated 3B Carlos Santana (concussion) from the 7-day concussion disabled list Friday, June 6, and optioned 1B Jesus Aguilar to Triple-A Columbus in a corresponding move.
Fantasy Tip: Santana returns but has been a huge disappointment this season. Perhaps the position switch to third base has been the main culprit. Regardless, Santana is too good of a hitter to be left to the waiver wire, even in standard mixed leagues. If you have to, leave him on your bench until he shows signs of life.

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.

Cleveland Indians 1B Jesus Aguilar has been tearing it up for Triple-A Columbus, posting a .337 average with seven doubles, seven home runs, 14 runs, 17 walks and 17 RBI with a .430 on-base percentage and .606 slugging percentage through 29 games. However, despite the need for some offensive improvement with the big club, manager Terry Francona said Tuesday, May 6, that Aguilar is not in the immediate plans. "We're not calling him up (right now)," Francona said. "He needs to play, but at some point, you never know."
Fantasy Tip: Aguilar's trip to Cleveland is certainly not blocked because of production, but rather the reluctance of the team to put a high-priced veteran like Nick Swisher on the bench (where he might deserve to be). For now, fantasy owners in AL-only leagues might want to squirrel away Aguilar if there is some roster flexibility. And if he is still available, those owners in long-term keeper leagues will want him rostered as well.
