Indians | Zach Walters optioned

Thu, 18 Jun 2015 11:46:06 -0700

Cleveland Indians SS Zach Walters was sent to Class AAA Columbus. In corresponding moves, RP Jeff Manship was promoted to the parent club and SP Shaun Marcum was designated for assignment Thursday, June 18.

Fantasy Tip: Ordinarily players like Walters ($1,500, 3.0% of cap) wouldn't merit much mention, but this appears to be a sign the club intends to play Francisco Lindor ($3,500, 7.0% of cap) and Mike Aviles ($3,200, 6.4% of cap) more often. Keep an eye on how this affects Lindor in particular.

Indians | Shaun Marcum to Triple-A?

Tue, 24 Mar 2015 22:18:04 -0700

Cleveland Indians SP Shaun Marcum has been informed Tuesday, March 24, that he will make the regular season roster, but he can remain in camp.

Fantasy Tip: It's uncertain if Marcum, who has been plagued by injuries for years, will accept an assignment to Triple-A Columbus to provide the organization depth. Whether he stays with the Indians or moves to another organization, it's clear his days of fantasy usefulness are well behind him.

Indians | Cleveland has rotation openings

Mon, 16 Mar 2015 14:18:18 -0700

Cleveland Indians SPs T.J. House, Danny Salazar, Zach McAllister, Josh Tomlin, Shaun Marcum and Bruce Chen will battle for the two open spots in the team's starting rotation.

Fantasy Tip: Expect Salazar and House to break camp with the jobs. While Tomlin and McAllister tip the scales slightly in AL-only formats, the other two hold no fantasy value. Last season, Salazar failed to follow up his monster 2013 second half and even spent time in the minors. He possess a high-end arsenal of pitches and significant upside, especially in the punch-out department, but shouldn't be viewed as anything more than a late-round flier in mixed leagues. House is a flier in deep mixed leagues, but he is likely be left to AL-only formats. He was better with Cleveland, than he was throughout his entire time at Class AAA, which highlights the risk associated with his fantasy stock.
