Indians | Yan Gomes sitting out vs. Texas

Wed, 27 May 2015 06:52:38 -0700

Cleveland Indians C Yan Gomes is not in the starting lineup against the Texas Rangers Wednesday, May 27. C Roberto Perez is batting ninth and starting behind the plate Wednesday.

Fantasy Tip: Make sure to remove Gomes ($4,600, 9.2% of cap) from all fantasy lineups Wednesday. Gomes is expected to start every other day, as he eases his way back from a lengthy absence due to a knee injury. FantasyScore players should view Perez ($3,100, 6.2% of cap) as nothing more than a desperation flier Wednesday.

Indians | David Murphy batting cleanup

Wed, 27 May 2015 06:49:59 -0700

Cleveland Indians OF David Murphy is batting fourth and playing right field against the Texas Rangers Wednesday, May 27.

Fantasy Tip: Murphy ($1,900, 3.8% of cap) is an excellent low-priced target for FantasyScore players Wednesday, as he is 30-for-89 (.337/.368/.494 slash line) against right-handed pitchers this season. Plus, Murphy is hitting behind the team's top three hitters.

Indians | Brandon Moss out of the lineup

Wed, 27 May 2015 06:44:13 -0700

Cleveland Indians OF Brandon Moss is not in the starting lineup against the Texas Rangers Wednesday, May 27. OF David Murphy is batting fourth and playing right field Wednesday.

Fantasy Tip: Make sure to avoid Moss ($3,800, 7.6% of cap) in all fantasy formats Wednesday. He is currently mired in a 12-for-59 funk with just four runs, two home runs and six RBI over his past 16 games. Murphy ($1,900, 3.8% of cap) is 30-for-89 (.337/.368/.494 slash line) against right-handed pitchers this season, and he is hitting behind the team's top three hitters. He is an excellent low-priced target Wednesday.

Indians | Carlos Carrasco due for improvement?

Wed, 27 May 2015 05:28:04 -0700

Cleveland Indians SP Carlos Carrasco has the largest differential between his ERA (4.74) and his FIP (2.64) in the league. Carrasco is starting against the Texas Rangers Wednesday, May 27.

Fantasy Tip: Clearly, Carrasco's defense has let him down, and while he is due for correction, it might not start Wednesday against the surging Rangers. Texas has won seven consecutive runs and scored 49 runs -- seven per game -- in the process. FantasyScore players should view Carrasco as a high-risk, high-reward option Wednesday, but seasonal owners might have a buy-low opportunity on their hands.

Indians | Lonnie Chisenhall not starting Tuesday

Tue, 26 May 2015 11:42:27 -0700

Cleveland Indians 3B Lonnie Chisenhall is not starting Tuesday, May 26. 3B Mike Aviles is in the lineup and hitting eighth.

Fantasy Tip: Chisenhall ($2,500, 5.0% of cap) has platooned more recently with Aviles, but there are signs Aviles ($2,600, 5.2% of cap) may be pulling ahead in the third base picture. Aviles is batting .438 in the last week, so take advantage of it.

Indians | Michael Bourn not starting Tuesday

Tue, 26 May 2015 11:36:38 -0700

Cleveland Indians OF Michael Bourn is not starting Tuesday, May 26. The Indians shifted OF Michael Brantley to center field for the night, and OF Ryan Raburn is in left.

Fantasy Tip: Bourn ($2,300, 4.6% of cap) is hitting better at the plate, and it looks like manager Terry Francona just shifted his lineup to get Bourn a night off. Raburn ($1,900, 3.8% of cap) has one hit in his last 15 plate appearances and carries little fantasy value.

Indians | Yan Gomes to be eased in

Tue, 26 May 2015 09:07:00 -0700

Cleveland Indians C Yan Gomes (knee), who sat out Monday, May 25, after returning for the first time the previous day since spraining his right knee April 11, will catch every other day for a week or two and could also serve as the designated hitter, according to manager Terry Francona.

Fantasy Tip: Gomes ($4,600, 9.2% of cap) was hitless in his return Sunday, and he should probably be considered a shaky FantasyScore play until he gets his legs back under him and his timing back at the plate. Also, make sure he's actually in the starting lineup before clicking on him.

Indians | David Murphy effective at fifth spot

Mon, 25 May 2015 12:24:38 -0700

Cleveland Indians OF David Murphy is 9-for-17 (.529) with two doubles and two runs batted in when he hits from the fifth spot in the lineup.

Fantasy Tip: This is a small sample size for Murphy ($1,900, 3.8% of cap), but it is also an example of dissecting a lineup. If you see Murphy in the lineup at the fifth spot, go for it. Murphy is a solid investment at this low price, as he tends to find contact.

Indians | Nick Swisher not starting

Mon, 25 May 2015 11:59:08 -0700

Cleveland Indians OF Nick Swisher is not in the starting lineup Monday, May 25. OF David Murphy will serve has the designated hitter for the team.

Fantasy Tip: Swisher ($2,100, 4.2% of cap) likely is receiving a day off and should return soon. Murphy ($1,900, 3.8% of cap) has six hits in his last four games and could be a cheaper option for owners on FantasyScore to consider.

Indians | Yan Gomes sitting out

Mon, 25 May 2015 11:53:24 -0700

Cleveland Indians C Yan Gomes is not in the starting lineup Monday, May 25. C Roberto Perez will be the starting catcher for the Indians.

Fantasy Tip: The Indians likely are being cautious with Gomes ($4,600, 9.2% of cap), which is why he is sitting out. Perez ($3,100, 6.2% of cap) has not done much at the plate lately and is not a great option for owners on FantasyScore.

Indians | Michael Brantley back in lienup

Sun, 24 May 2015 16:52:25 -0700

Cleveland Indians OF Michael Brantley (back) returned to the lineup Sunday, May 24, after a one-game absence and went 1-for-4 with a double and a walk in a 5-2 win over the Cincinnati Reds.

Fantasy Tip: Brantley ($5,800, 11.6% of cap) has been enjoying a solid year despite dealing with a nagging back issue, but he has tailed off a bit recently. He hasn't had a multi-hit game since May 15, and he has scored just one run over the eight-game stretch. Look elsewhere at FantasyScore until his bat catches fire.

Indians | Yan Gomes hitless in return

Sun, 24 May 2015 16:46:09 -0700

Cleveland Indians C Yan Gomes (knee) went 0-for-4 with a run scored in a 5-2 win against the Cincinnati Reds in his first start since being activated from the disabled list Sunday, May 24.

Fantasy Tip: Gomes ($4,600, 9.2% of cap) had not played since April 11, and some rust is to be expected. Avoid Gomes at FantasyScore until his timing comes back.

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 | Michael Bourn gets Sunday off

Sun, 24 May 2015 08:12:15 -0700

Cleveland Indians OF Michael Bourn isn't in the starting lineup Sunday, May 24, against the Cincinnati Reds. As a result, OF David Murphy will start in left field and bat fifth in the order.

Fantasy Tip: Murphy ($1,900, 3.8% of cap) will have a lefty on righty matchup against RHP Raisel Iglesias of the Reds. Murphy has hit .325 off righties so far this year, with four doubles and three home runs. Murphy is a strong cost-saving play on FantasyScore while batting in the heart of the lineup.

Indians | Corey Kluber keeps rolling

Sat, 23 May 2015 17:19:51 -0700

Cleveland Indians SP Corey Kluber allowed one run on nine hits while striking out seven over eight innings in a win over the Cincinnati Reds Saturday, May 23, and he has allowed one run or less in three straight starts.

Fantasy Tip: Kluber ($8,000, 16.0% of cap) has allowed two runs in 25.0 innings over his last three starts while piling up 37 strikeouts compared to just one walk. He has put a rough opening month to the year behind him, and the defending Cy Young winner is a must-start option at FantasyScore right now.
