Indians | Abraham Almonte playing center field

Sat, 29 Aug 2015 11:40:41 -0700

Cleveland Indians OF Abraham Almonte is batting seventh and playing center field against Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim SP Garrett Richards Saturday, Aug. 29.

Fantasy Tip: Almonte ($3,100, 6.2% of cap) is 5-for-15 over the past week and is hitting .273 with two homers and 10 RBIs since the All-Star break. He's worthy of consideration as a FantasyScore value play tonight.

Indians | Abraham Almonte sitting out

Fri, 28 Aug 2015 13:42:42 -0700

Cleveland Indians OF Abraham Almonte is not in the starting lineup against Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim SP Andrew Heaney Friday, Aug. 28. SS Mike Aviles will start in center field and is batting ninth in the lineup.

Fantasy Tip: Almonte ($3,100, 6.2% of cap) likely will return to the starting lineup in the next game or two. Aviles ($3,100, 6.2% of cap) is hitting only .209 this month and is not a strong candidate on FantasyScore.

Indians | Abraham Almonte sitting out

Mon, 24 Aug 2015 09:36:47 -0700

Cleveland Indians OF Abraham Almonte is not in the starting lineup Monday, Aug. 24. SS Mike Aviles is starting in center field and batting sixth against Chicago Cubs SP Jon Lester.

Fantasy Tip: Aviles ($3,100, 6.2% of cap) has a little bit better numbers against lefties (.233-3-8) than against righties (.212-1-5) this year, but he's not an offensive force and usually struggled to fill up the stat sheet when he's in there. He's a weak FantasyScore option today.

Indians | Abraham Almonte recalled

Sat, 08 Aug 2015 23:38:00 -0700

Cleveland Indians OF Abraham Almonte was recalled from Class AAA Columbus on Saturday, Aug. 8. OF Tyler Holt was sent to Columbus in a corresponding move.

Fantasy Tip: Right now, the Indians outfield situation is a mess. The trades of Michael Bourn, Nick Swisher and David Murphy have left the team trying to figure out who will play where. Holt was told he needed to relax by no less than manager Terry Francona, and Almonte was hitting the ball strong in the minors. Keep an eye on Almonte to see if he starts hitting and be prepared to pounce if he does.

Padres | Still no Justin Upton

Thu, 23 Jul 2015 15:41:30 -0700

San Diego Padres OF Justin Upton (oblique) remains out of the lineup Thursday, July 23, against the Miami Marlins. OF Abraham Almonte will start in left field and bat leadoff against RHP Tom Koehler.

Fantasy Tip: Almonte went 2-for-4 Wednesday, in his first start since May 30. Even as Upton's absence drags on, Almonte shouldn't be considered for fantasy purposes.

Padres | Justin Upton out again Wednesday

Wed, 22 Jul 2015 10:37:21 -0700

San Diego Padres OF Justin Upton (oblique) is out of the lineup Wednesday, July 22, with OF Abraham Almonte in at leadoff.

Fantasy Tip: Almonte had a 43 at-bat cup of coffee earlier this season and hit just .186. Give him a game or two to show what he can do before considering him on FantasyScore.

Padres | Will Middlebrooks sent down

Wed, 22 Jul 2015 10:34:58 -0700

San Diego Padres 3B/SS Will Middlebrooks was optioned to Class AAA El Paso Wednesday, July 22, with OF Abraham Almonte coming up from El Paso.

Fantasy Tip: Almonte failed to impress in a cup of coffee earlier this season, but he's leading off today. If he can carve a niche, he could be worth a low-end FantasyScore flyer.

Padres | Abraham Almonte starting in center field

Fri, 29 May 2015 15:29:13 -0700

San Diego Padres OF Abraham Almonte is starting in center field and batting eighth against the Pittsburgh Pirates Friday, May 29.

Fantasy Tip: Almonte ($1,700, 3.4% of cap) has a .223/.273/.311 slash line over his last 75 games and 259 plate appearances dating back to the beginning of 2014. Batting eighth doesn't help, either. Until he proves otherwise, FantasyScore players shouldn't view Almonte as anything more than a desperation source of cap relief.

Padres | Abraham Almonte in lineup

Mon, 25 May 2015 15:09:25 -0700

San Diego Padres OF Abraham Almonte will start in right field and bat eighth in the order Monday, May 25, against the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim. OF Matt Kemp will serve as the designated hitter in the American League park.

Fantasy Tip: Almonte ($1,700, 3.4% of cap) is just 2-for-his-last 13 at-bats, spanning seven games. A switch-hitter, Almonte fairs much worse against right-handed pitchers. FantasyScore owners will need to look elsewhere for a bargain play.

Padres | Abraham Almonte leading off vs. Cubs

Wed, 20 May 2015 15:26:42 -0700

San Diego Padres OF Abraham Almonte is starting in center field and hitting leadoff against Chicago Cubs SP Tsuyoshi Wada Wednesday, May 20. OF Will Venable will start on the bench against a lefty.

Fantasy Tip: Almonte ($1,700, 3.4% of cap) and Venable ($2,500, 5.0% of cap) are effectively in a platoon situation in center field with Wil Myers (wrist) on the DL. Venable offers more speed and power upside as a sleeper play at FantasyScore.
