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 | Mike Aviles back in

Sun, 07 Jun 2015 08:20:30 -0700

Cleveland Indians SS Mike Aviles is back in the starting lineup Sunday, June 7, against the Baltimore Orioles and RHP Bud Norris. Aviles will hit ninth in the order while SS Jose Ramirez comes out of the lineup.

Fantasy Tip: Aviles ($2,600, 5.2% of cap) is hitting .316 in 40 plate appearances against right-handed pitchers. While he could be cheated out of an at-bat, Aviles holds some upside as a GPP option on FantasyScore.

Indians | Jose Ramirez returns Saturday

Sat, 06 Jun 2015 11:58:29 -0700

Cleveland Indians SS Jose Ramirez is back in the starting lineup against the Baltimore Orioles Saturday, June 6, batting ninth. INF Mike Aviles, who had started the last three games at shortstop, is not in the lineup.

Fantasy Tip: Ramirez ($2,600, 5.2% of cap) is only batting .184 on the season and has struggled at the plate against both righties (.186) and lefties (.180). He can be ignored in FantasyScore unless he reverts back to the form he displayed last year.

Indians | Jose Ramirez out of lineup again

Fri, 05 Jun 2015 17:34:55 -0700

Cleveland Indians SS Jose Ramirez found himself out of the starting lineup for the third consecutive game Friday, June 5, against the Kansas City Royals. INF Mike Aviles started at shortstop for the third time in as many contests but manager Terry Francona would not say whether he has taken over the position on a full-time basis.

Fantasy Tip: Through 44 games, Ramirez ($2,600, 5.2% of cap) is only batting .184 with a .252 OBP, one home run and eight RBIs. He is not a viable option in FantasyScore even on days when he is penciled into the lineup. Aviles ($2,600, 5.2% of cap) is performing better than Ramirez in virtually every offensive category and is a valuable asset to have in seasonal leagues due to his ability to play multiple positions. Francona said prospect Francisco Lindor, who is hitting .260 at Class AAA Columbus, will not be promoted to the majors anytime soon.

Indians | Mike Aviles draws into lineup at SS

Fri, 05 Jun 2015 13:57:57 -0700

Cleveland Indians SS Mike Aviles is starting at shortstop and hitting ninth in the batting order against Baltimore Orioles SP Chris Tillman Friday, June 5. SS Jose Ramirez is starting on the bench.

Fantasy Tip: Aviles ($2,600, 5.2% of cap) is a better shortstop option than Ramirez on FantasyScore, but he doesn't typically fill out a stat sheet, and he's less intriguing at the bottom of the lineup. He's a deep sleeper with a decent matchup tonight if you're feeling lucky tonight.

Indians | Mike Aviles draws into lineup

Wed, 03 Jun 2015 13:45:14 -0700

Cleveland Indians SS Mike Aviles is starting at shortstop and hitting second in the batting order against Kansas City Royals SP Jason Vargas Wednesday, June 3. SS Jose Ramirez is taking the day off against a lefty.

Fantasy Tip: Aviles ($2,600, 5.2% of cap) has hit better against righties than lefties in 2015, but he does have two of his three home runs and six of his seven RBI against southpaws. He's worth at least a consideration as a sleeper pick on FantasyScore this evening, as four the five home runs Vargas has allowed this year have been to right-handers.

Indians | Jose Ramirez in two-hole

Fri, 29 May 2015 16:38:32 -0700

Cleveland Indians SS Jose Ramirez is hitting second in the batting order against Seattle Mariners SP Taijuan Walker Friday, May 29, with 1B Carlos Santana on the paternity list.

Fantasy Tip: Ramirez ($2,200, 4.4% of cap) has been equally bad against righties and lefties this year, but he is 11-for-35 (.314) with his only homer of the year in the two-hole. It gives him some upside as a deep sleeper play this evening against Walker, but it's obviously a big risk.

Indians | Mike Aviles starting at SS

Wed, 27 May 2015 09:07:03 -0700

Cleveland Indians SS Mike Aviles is starting at shortstop and hitting seventh in the batting order against Texas Rangers SP Colby Lewis Wednesday, May 27. SS Jose Ramirez will start the game on the bench.

Fantasy Tip: Aviles ($2,600, 5.2% of cap) has seen more consistent playing time since returning from a leave of absence, and he's hitting .387 (12-for-31) with a home run and three RBI in May. He's also hitting .375 (9-for-24) with a home run this year against righties. However, Aviles is still nothing more than a midrange shortstop option at FantasyScore.

Indians | Mike Aviles in lineup

Sun, 24 May 2015 08:17:46 -0700

Cleveland Indians SS Mike Aviles will start at shortstop and bat ninth in the order Sunday, May 24, against the Cincinnati Reds. SS Jose Ramirez will go to the bench.

Fantasy Tip: Aviles ($2,600, 5.2% of cap) is 6-for-his-last-11 and in the midst of a hot streak. While Aviles' price remains low, FantasyScore owners should be putting him into their lineups.

Indians | Carlos Santana remains out

Tue, 19 May 2015 16:04:07 -0700

Cleveland Indians 1B Carlos Santana (back) remains out of the lineup Tuesday, May 19. SS Jose Ramirez has moved up to the second spot in the batting order against Chicago White Sox SP Jose Quintana.

Fantasy Tip: Keep a close eye on Santana, who is hitting just .220 (27-for-123) with four home runs and 20 RBI on the year. Ramirez ($2,800, 5.6% of cap) is hitting just .183 (19-for-104) with one home run and five RBI, but he managed two hits while hitting in the two-hole last night. The temporary move to the top of the order boosts Ramirez's FantasyScore value, but he's still more of a low-end shortstop option.
