Cleveland Indians OF Tyler Naquin is not in the starting lineup Tuesday, July 19, against the Kansas City Royals. OF Rajai Davis replaces Naquin and leads off against SP Brian Flynn.
Fantasy Tip: Naquin is out due to the lefty-lefty matchup. A previous post suggests to play Davis because of the damage he can do at the top of the lineup, especially against an unfamiliar Kansas City pitcher.

Cleveland Indians OF Lonnie Chisenhall will not start the Tuesday, July 19, game against Kansas City Royals SP Brian Flynn. OF Erik Gonzalez replaces Chisenhall and bats ninth.
Fantasy Tip: Chisenhall, a lefty hitter, is out with the lefty pitcher matchup. Keep him away from your DFS lineup for tonight, although Chisenhall might pinch-hit once a righty enters the game. Gonzalez was .296-6-39 with nine steals at Class AAA Columbus, but wait and see how he handles his first few big league at-bats before investing a roster spot.

Cleveland Indians OF Rajai Davis is in the leadoff spot Tuesday, July 19, against Kansas City Royals SP Brian Flynn.
Fantasy Tip: With a .260-9-34 hitting line and 24 stolen bases, Davis is a double threat leading off. This, plus the combination of a relatively new pitcher, means Cleveland may be testing a new lineup to see if it can get to Flynn right away. Davis is a must-play in all formats with that combo of power and speed.

Cleveland Indians DH Carlos Santana will hit fifth against Kansas City Royals SP Brian Flynn on Tuesday, July 19.
Fantasy Tip: Santana normally is the leadoff hitter, so this is somewhat of a surprise. OF Rajai Davis is in the lead spot, so the team may want speed. Still, Santana (.254-20-51) will get plenty of at-bats in the middle of the lineup, so he is definitely recommended.

Kansas City Royals SP Chris R. Young has been moved to the bullpen. SPs Dillon Gee or Brian Flynn will "probably" start in his place Saturday, July 9.
Fantasy Tip: This move should surprise no one, as despite a solid first season with the Royals last year, Young has just been awful in 2016. Not only does he own a putrid 6.90 ERA and 1.63 WHIP, but the veteran had also surrendered a whopping 26 homers -- in just 60 total innings! Meanwhile, Gee and Flynn are not worth rushing to acquire, as neither has a high ceiling.

Miami Marlins RP Dan Jennings (concussion) was placed on the 7-day concussion disabled list Friday, Aug. 8. SP Brian Flynn and INF Enrique Hernandez were optioned to Triple-A New Orleans, and SP Anthony DeSclafani, 3B Ed Lucas and SP Edgar Olmos were recalled from New Orleans.

Houston Astros SP Jarred Cosart (oblique) will have his next scheduled start Thursday, Aug. 7, pushed back due to an oblique injury. SP Brian Flynn will pitch the series finale instead. Cosart will instead make his next start Tuesday, Aug. 12.
Fantasy Tip: Oblique injuries can be tricky for pitchers and usually require DL stints, so Cosart is by no means out of the woods yet for his next start. Flynn is one of the team's top pitching prospects and should be owned in all NL-only leagues. You can probably wait in deep mixed leagues, but he should at least be on your radar.

The Miami Marlins designated SP Jacob Turner for assignment Tuesday, Aug. 5, and recalled SP Brian Flynn from Triple-A New Orleans in a corresponding move.
Fantasy Tip: Flynn, 24, is one of the team's top pitching prospects, and he made a short relief appearance back in June. It looks like he'll receive a chance to pitch out of the starting rotation this time, perhaps for the remainder of the season. He should be owned in all NL-only leagues immediately, and he could even be worth a roster spot in deep mixed leagues.
