Indians | Yan Gomes, Marlon Byrd sitting

Fri, 27 May 2016 13:43:17 -0700

Cleveland Indians C Yan Gomes and OF Marlon Byrd are not in the starting lineup Friday, May 27. C Chris Gimenez is behind the dish and hitting eighth, while 3B/OF Jose Ramirez is starting in left field and batting fifth against Baltimore Orioles SP Mike Wright.

Fantasy Tip: Ramirez is making the most of his playing time with the Tribe, hitting .287 with three home runs and 18 RBI. He doesn't have much power, but you can't argue with him as a DFS value pick the way he's been playing. Gimenez has occasional pop behind the dish but is a low-end backstop in daily formats.

Indians | Marlon Byrd in LF Tuesday

Tue, 24 May 2016 14:31:30 -0700

Cleveland Indians OF Marlon Byrd is starting in left field and is batting seventh against Chicago White Sox SP Chris Sale Tuesday, May 24.

Fantasy Tip: Byrd's playing time should be steady as long as Michael Brantley remains on the disabled list between left and right field. For that reason he's not a bad depth option in cavernous mixed and AL-only leagues for his power. He has just two home runs this month, though, and is hitting .238 in May, so temper your expectations. He's not attractive in daily games against Sale this evening.

Indians | Rajai Davis, Juan Uribe sitting

Mon, 23 May 2016 11:06:45 -0700

Cleveland Indians OF Rajai Davis and 3B Juan Uribe are not in the starting lineup for Game 1 of a doubleheader against the Chicago White Sox Monday, May 23. OFs Michael Martinez and Marlon Byrd are starting and hitting ninth and eighth, respectively. 3B/OF Jose Ramirez is starting at third base and batting fifth against White Sox SP Mat Latos.

Fantasy Tip: Byrd and Martinez have low ceiling for fantasy gamers for Game 1. Ramirez has only one home run but is hittinng .296 (34-for-115) in a utility role for the Tribe and is a cheap value pick against Latos.

Indians | Jose Ramirez takes a seat

Sat, 21 May 2016 11:22:51 -0700

Cleveland Indians OF Jose Ramirez is out of the lineup Saturday, May 21, with OF Marlon Byrd hitting sixth.

Fantasy Tip: Byrd has yet to provide the kind of pop he has in recent years, but he's hitting .313 the last week. He's a low-end consideration against Joe Kelly.

Indians | Three Indians regulars sitting

Thu, 19 May 2016 14:43:42 -0700

Cleveland Indians 1B Mike Napoli (rest), OF Marlon Byrd (rest) and C Yan Gomes (rest) are all out of the lineup Thursday, May 19. 1B Carlos Santana is batting cleanup in place of Napoli, OF Lonnie Chisenhall is in right field batting sixth replacing Byrd, and C Chris Gimenez is behind the plate with Gomes out and batting eighth versus Cincinnati Reds SP Tim Adleman.

Fantasy Tip: Napoli is only out of the lineup because it's under National League rules, so Santana will take over first base duties this evening after sitting in last night's contest. His value goes up a notch due to his power potential. Meanwhile, Chisenhall and Gimenez are both inconsistent at the plate and probably not worth deploying in daily leagues.

Indians | Lonnie Chisenhall back in lineup

Tue, 17 May 2016 11:15:44 -0700

Cleveland Indians OF Lonnie Chisenhall is back in the starting lineup and is hitting seventh against Cincinnati Reds SP Alfredo Simon Tuesday, May 17. OF Marlon Byrd moves to left field and is batting eighth.

Fantasy Tip: Chisenhall contributes very average stats across the board and is a lukewarm fantasy option everywhere. He figures to play right field against right-handers. Byrd figures to move around between the corner outfield spots with Michael Brantley back on the DL, but he, too, is more of a low-end sleeper play in daily formats.

Indians | Juan Uribe back in lineup Sunday

Sun, 15 May 2016 08:14:56 -0700

Cleveland Indians 3B Juan Uribe is back in the starting lineup against Minnesota Twins SP Tyler Duffey Sunday, May 15, batting sixth. INF/OF Jose Ramirez, who played the hot corner Saturday, May 14, will bat fifth and play left field Sunday. In addition, C Chris Gimenez will bat eighth and start behind the plate, while OF Michael Martinez will play right field and bat ninth. OFs Marlon Byrd and Rajai Davis and C Yan Gomes are not in the lineup.

Fantasy Tip: Although Uribe is just batting .224 in 76 at-bats this season, it's worth nothing that he is hitting .324 with two doubles and three RBI in 37 at-bats at home. Gimenez is worth considering as a value play in DFS, while Martinez is nothing more than a desperation source of salary cap relief.

Indians | Carlos Santana leading off again

Wed, 04 May 2016 11:14:51 -0700

Cleveland Indians 1B Carlos Santana is leading off for the second straight day Wednesday, May 4. OF Marlon Byrd is sitting out with OF Lonnie Chisenhall hitting seventh.

Fantasy Tip: Santana isn't your typical leadoff hitter, and it trumps a lot of his fantasy value. He has a .238-4-12 line on the season, and he's really not a great DFS start in this spot. Chisenhall is hitting .200 in 25 at-bats and doesn't possess a ton of upside against Anibal Sanchez.

Indians | Rajai Davis, Lonnie Chisenhall sitting

Tue, 03 May 2016 11:26:49 -0700

Cleveland Indians OFs Rajai Davis and Lonnie Chisenhall are not in the starting lineup Tuesday, May 3. OF Marlon Byrd is in right field and hitting seventh, while OF Tyler Naquin is starting in center field and batting ninth against Detroit Tigers SP Justin Verlander.

Fantasy Tip: Neither Byrd nor Naquin are outstanding picks for daily rosters, but Byrd does have six hits in 13 at-bats against Verlander with a home run. Naquin has handled his own in 48 at-bats (.333 average). Both should be considered midrange outfield options as sleepers.

Indians | Three Tribe regulars sitting out

Wed, 27 Apr 2016 14:42:12 -0700

Cleveland Indians 3B Juan Uribe and OFs Lonnie Chisenhall and Rajai Davis are not in the starting lineup Wednesday, April 27. 3B Jose Ramirez is at the hot corner and is batting seventh, OF Marlon Byrd is starting in right field and is hitting eighth, while OF Tyler Naquin sees the start in center field and is batting ninth against Minnesota Twins SP Jose Berrios.

Fantasy Tip: The Tribe is facing a top pitching prospect making his major league debut in Berrios, so their is plenty of risk and reward for all three players in daily formats. However, with all three near the bottom of the lineup, they're more of desperation deep sleeper picks.
