Cleveland Indians news, rumors and injuries
Wed, 27 May 2015 06:52:38 -0700
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.
Wed, 27 May 2015 06:49:59 -0700
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.

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.

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.

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

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.
Mon, 25 May 2015 12:24:38 -0700
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.
Mon, 25 May 2015 11:59:08 -0700
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.
Mon, 25 May 2015 11:53:24 -0700
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.
Sun, 24 May 2015 16:52:25 -0700
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.
Sun, 24 May 2015 16:46:09 -0700
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.
Sun, 24 May 2015 08:17:46 -0700
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.
Sun, 24 May 2015 08:12:15 -0700
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.

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.
