Indians | Jose Ramirez hitting second Tuesday

Tue, 28 Apr 2015 11:41:13 -0700

Cleveland Indians SS Jose Ramirez is hitting second in the batting order against Kansas City Royals SP Jeremy Guthrie Tuesday, April 28. OF Michael Bourn is in the nine-hole.

Fantasy Tip: While Ramirez ($2,400, 4.8% of cap) has only 10 hits in 54 at-bats (.185), the move to the top of lineup to get him going is notable, and it could make him a value play at FantasyScore tonight to give you a leg up against your competition. Consider him if you're looking to save money elsewhere.

Indians | Francisco Lindor hot at Triple-A

Mon, 27 Apr 2015 19:44:20 -0700

Cleveland Indians SS Francisco Lindor has a slash line of .302/.380/429 at Triple-A Columbus, and fans are calling for him to replace the struggling SS Jose Ramirez. General manager Chris Antonetti said Monday, April 27, that Lindor has a "litany of things" to work on in Columbus before he gets the call to the big club.

Fantasy Tip: Lindor is the future at shortstop for the Indians, but it doesn't appear that a promotion will happen soon. He remains a must-have in long-term keeper leagues, and is worth stashing away in AL-only leagues if you have the roster flexibility. FantasyScore owners need not bother with him for now.

Indians | Jose Ramirez is fine for now

Mon, 27 Apr 2015 19:33:04 -0700

Cleveland Indians SS Jose Ramirez is off to a slow start, but the team is still preaching patience with SS Francisco Lindor hot at Triple-A Columbus and waiting in the wings. Ramirez was hitting just .196 through his first 15 games over 51 at-bats. "I would encourage (fans) to take a look at Jose Ramirez's body of work," general manager Chris Antonetti said Monday, April 27. "Not only what he did last year at the Major League level, but the way he played and performed throughout our development system, because he's a guy that produced at each level and played very well at each stop he's been - including the Major Leagues."

Fantasy Tip: Ramirez did well taking over for the departed Asdrubal Cabrera last season, and it sounds like he has a bit of a long leash in Cleveland. Still, if Lindor continues to tear it up and Ramirez can't snap his funk, the calls of the fans will only get louder and more frequent.

Indians | Francisco Lindor reassigned to minors

Thu, 26 Mar 2015 10:48:24 -0700

Cleveland Indians SS Francisco Lindor was reassigned to minor league camp Thursday, March 26, and he will start the season with Triple-A Columbus. Lindor had a slash line of .297/.308/.592 with two home runs, a triple and three doubles in 16 Cactus League game this spring. SS Jose Ramirez, 22, is expected to hold down shortstop duties until Lindor is ready.

Fantasy Tip: Lindor is MLB.com's No. 4 prospect in 2015. He shouldn't be drafted in standard mixed leagues, but he should definitely be on the radar of those in AL-only and keeper leagues.

Indians | Cleveland not rushing Francisco Lindor

Mon, 02 Mar 2015 14:01:15 -0800

Cleveland Indians SS Francisco Lindor won't be rushed to the big leagues this year, according to manager Terry Francona. Lindor is ranked as the Tribe's top prospects by several outlets and is ranked fourth among MLB.com's top 100. Lindor is expected to start 2015 at Triple-A Columbus because the team is content with SS Jose Ramirez starting the season. Lindor hit .276 with 11 home runs, 16 doubles, four triples, 62 RBI, 75 runs and 28 stolen bases in 126 games between Class AA and AAA.

Fantasy Tip: Because Lindor won't start the year in the majors, he's not worth drafting in standard 12-team leagues. However, he'll be a popular waiver wire target for his combo of speed and power once he's up. It might not take long, depending on whether Ramirez can continue impressing the Tribe at the 6. Lindor is worth drafting and stashing in AL-only leagues, and he's very relevant in keeper and dynasty leagues.

Indians | Jose Ramirez loses some weight

Mon, 23 Feb 2015 16:00:44 -0800

Cleveland Indians SS Jose Ramirez impressed the coaching staff by reporting to camp lighter after gaining some weight over the winter. Manager Terry Francona's message "about taking charge" seems to have resonated with the youngster.

Fantasy Tip: Ramirez, just 22 years old, is slated to open the year as the team's starting shortstop. He's an impressive youngster who hit .262 with two home runs in 68 games last year, and he added 10 stolen bases. He's more of a candidate for AL-only leagues, but he could find his way to being useful in deep mixed leagues throughout the season.
