Indians | Zach McAllister could start Saturday

Fri, 25 Jul 2014 11:24:54 -0700

Cleveland Indians SP Zach McAllister is expected to be activated and start Saturday, July 26, against the Kansas City Royals.

Fantasy Tip: It's a matchup AL-only players could try out, but mixed leaguers shouldn't go near him yet.

Indians | Michael Bourn doesn't have a timetable

Fri, 25 Jul 2014 08:40:13 -0700

Cleveland Indians OF Michael Bourn (hamstring) has no definitive timetable in his recovery from his strained left hamstring. He played catch in the outfield Thursday, July 24.

Fantasy Tip: This could last at least another week. And for someone whose value is typically driven by stolen bases, the time it'll probably take for him to get back into shape doesn't bode well for his late-season contributions.

Indians | Asdrubal Cabrera update

Thu, 24 Jul 2014 15:17:57 -0700

Updating a previous report, Cleveland Indians SS Asdrubal Cabrera (back) increased his activity today and could return to the lineup Saturday, July 26, according to manager Terry Francona. Francona noted it could be an optimistic expectation, though.

Fantasy Tip: Cross your fingers, but it would be wise to scout for a Cabrera replacement if you haven't already done so.

Indians | No Asdrubal Cabrera again

Thu, 24 Jul 2014 13:24:57 -0700

Cleveland Indians SS Asdrubal Cabrera (back) is not in the lineup Thursday, July 24. INF Jose Ramirez is starting in his place, batting ninth.

Fantasy Tip: Cabrera could be looking at a disabled list stint if this persists. Ramirez is nothing more than AL-only filler.

Indians | Michael Bourn able to do some running

Wed, 23 Jul 2014 12:09:01 -0700

Cleveland Indians OF Michael Bourn (hamstring) was able to do some running Wednesday, July 23, after being able to hit Tuesday, July 22. He said he wants to start running without pain before returning to the lineup. "I want to get back to running without any pain," Bourn said. "Just stride out into a full sprint as close as I possibly can. The sooner I'll be able to do that, I'll be closer to coming back."

Indians | Yan Gomes sitting

Wed, 23 Jul 2014 08:19:20 -0700

Cleveland Indians C Yan Gomes (rest) is not in the lineup Wednesday, July 23. C Roberto Perez is taking his place, batting eighth.

Fantasy Tip: Remove Gomes from your daily lineups. He merely is getting a spell for this day game. Along with his breakthrough season, he has enjoyed July with a .333-4-11 line in 54 AB.

Indians | Asdrubal Cabrera sitting again

Wed, 23 Jul 2014 08:17:32 -0700

Cleveland Indians SS Asdrubal Cabrera (back) is not in the lineup Wednesday, July 23. INF Jose Ramirez is starting in his place, batting second.

Fantasy Tip: Cabrera will probably rest for at least a few more days if not land on the disabled list. His owners should be preparing for a potentially long absence.

Indians | Danny Salazar solid

Wed, 23 Jul 2014 07:33:42 -0700

Cleveland Indians SP Danny Salazar allowed a run on six hits and struck out six in five innings to beat the Minnesota Twins Tuesday, July 22.

Fantasy Tip: Salazar was very hittable in his recent stint at Triple-A, but he logged 67 strikeouts in 53 2/3 innings. It appears you're going to have to put up with high ratios to feast on his strikeouts.

Indians | Asdrubal Cabrera wearing back brace

Tue, 22 Jul 2014 14:46:44 -0700

Updating a previous report, Cleveland Indians SS Asdrubal Cabrera (back) was wearing a back brace and walking gingerly Tuesday, July 22. Cabrera said if he is still in pain Wednesday, July 23, he would get a MRI or X-ray.

Fantasy Tip: It could be time to surf your waiver wire for potential shortstop replacements, at least for the short-term. Mike Aviles' value would increase significantly, if Cabrera misses time.

Indians | No Asdrubal Cabrera

Tue, 22 Jul 2014 13:39:34 -0700

Cleveland Indians SS Asdrubal Cabrera (back) is not in the starting lineup Tuesday, July 22, against the Minnesota Twins. Cabrera left the game early Monday, July 21, with back spasms. SS Mike Aviles is starting at shortstop Tuesday.

Fantasy Tip: Continue to check back for updates on Cabrera's back. Aviles' low price tag makes him a sound budget play in daily games.

Indians | Danny Salazar recalled

Tue, 22 Jul 2014 13:38:52 -0700

Cleveland Indians SP Danny Salazar was recalled from Triple-A Columbus Tuesday, July 22, to pitch against the Minnesota Twins. In a corresponding move, RP C.C. Lee was optioned to Columbus.

Fantasy Tip: Salazar's ability to miss bats makes him an intriguing addition in the majority of mixed leagues. However, he has struggled with his command and is a high-risk, high-reward player. Consider Salazar tonight against the Twins in daily games, if he is priced right.

Indians | Jason Kipnis likely to be limited rest of season

Tue, 22 Jul 2014 06:53:29 -0700

Cleveland Indians 2B Jason Kipnis (oblique) is likely to be limited by an oblique injury for the rest of the season. Kipnis has adjusted his swing to adhere to the right oblique strain he suffered in April. "I'd use the word adjustment," Kipnis said. "As far as the oblique goes, it's going to be there all year. It's not going to go away until the offseason. What I can do is find a swing that works for me. I thought we may have found something coming out of Detroit. It was a step in the right direction and we're going to keep making adjustments day to day and pitch to pitch and see how it goes."

Fantasy Tip: Kipnis isn't hitting for much power and likely isn't going to the rest of the season. However, he was 5-for-15 with two homers and six RBIs in the recent series with Detroit. He's still worth owning in all formats, but he may be a player you sit during cold spells.

Indians | Francisco Lindor promoted to Triple-A

Mon, 21 Jul 2014 20:51:44 -0700

The Cleveland Indians promoted SS Francisco Lindor from Double-A Akron to Triple-A Columbus Monday, July 21. "You never expect to go somewhere else. You work for it," Lindor said.

Fantasy Tip: Lindor is one of the top prospects in baseball, and he could end up being a September call-up when rosters expand. He is a must-have in all long-term keeper fantasy leagues, and those in non-keeper AL-only formats might want to stash him away for later in the season.
