Indians | Brandon Moss resting vs. lefty

Mon, 27 Apr 2015 11:30:05 -0700

Cleveland Indians OF Brandon Moss is not in the starting lineup Monday, April 27. OF Jerry Sands is starting in right field and hitting sixth in the batting order against Kansas City Royals left-handed SP Jason Vargas.

Fantasy Tip: Sands ($1,800, 3.6% of cap) has eight hits in 21 at-bats this year, but he last recorded a knock April 22 and hasn't started a game since a week ago, as he's been relegated to a bench role. Consider him a low-end outfield option with pop at FantasyScore.

Indians | Lonnie Chisenhall sitting Monday

Mon, 27 Apr 2015 11:29:34 -0700

Cleveland Indians 3B Lonnie Chisenhall is not in the starting lineup Monday, April 27. SS Mike Aviles is starting at third base and hitting second in the batting order against Kansas City Royals SP Jason Vargas.

Fantasy Tip: Aviles ($2,000, 4.0% of cap) isn't a bad low-priced shortstop option today at FantasyScore as a sleeper, especially hitting near the top of the Tribe's order. Vargas has struggled of late for the Royals.

Indians | Trevor Bauer will try to play catch

Sun, 26 Apr 2015 08:48:47 -0700

Cleveland Indians SP Trevor Bauer (illness) might try to play catch Sunday, April 26. The team isn't sure if Bauer's scheduled start Tuesday, April 28, is in jeopardy.

Fantasy Tip: Bauer ($3,900, 7.8% of cap) has been lights out to start the season, with a 0.95 ERA. Bauer has been striking out 12.32 batters per nine innings, but has also walked 5.21 batters per nine. Bauer hasn't allowed a home run yet this season, but all three of his starts have been of the quality variety. If Bauer's on your waiver wire, go and get him.

Indians | Michael Bourn dropped in order

Sun, 26 Apr 2015 08:18:32 -0700

Cleveland Indians OF Michael Bourn was dropped to ninth in the batting order Sunday, April 26, against the Detroit Tigers. The Indians will take on Tigers left-hander Kyle Lobstein. Bourn said he understood manager Terry Francona's decision, "Sometimes you just catch yourself in a funk," he said.

Fantasy Tip: Bourn ($2,600, 5.2% of cap) has just a .180 average through 68 plate appearances, with zero home runs and one stolen base. It's a rough matchup for the left-handed hitting Bourn, who will go up against Tigers lefty Kyle Lobstein. Avoid Bourn on FantasyScore.

Indians | Ryan Raburn at DH

Sun, 26 Apr 2015 07:02:30 -0700

Cleveland Indians OF Ryan Raburn will start as the designated hitter and bat fifth in the order Sunday, April 26, against the Detroit Tigers.

Fantasy Tip: Raburn ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) has gotten off to a blistering start with a .364 average through 24 plate appearances. While regression is likely to his Raburn hard at some point in the near future, FantasyScore owners have to keep using him until that happens. Against Tigers left-hander Kyle Lobstein, Raburn represents a quality value play.

Indians | Mike Aviles batting second

Sun, 26 Apr 2015 06:56:52 -0700

Cleveland Indians SS Mike Aviles is starting at shortstop and batting second in the order Sunday, April 26, against the Detroit Tigers.

Fantasy Tip: Aviles ($2,000, 4.0% of cap) has one home run and a .250 batting average in 32 plate appearances this season. Aviles has hit .274 in his career against left-handed pitchers, and he'll make for a decent value against Tigers left-hander Kyle Lobstein on FantasyScore.

Indians | Michael Brantley coming alive

Sat, 25 Apr 2015 16:16:11 -0700

Cleveland Indians OF Michael Brantley has hit .419 (13-for-31) with five RBI in eight games since returning from a back injury.

Fantasy Tip: We'd be more excited about Brantley ($5,400, 10.8% of your cap) if 10 of his 13 hits weren't singles. He's at a premium price, but his hot streak means he's on point with his stroke. He's a decent OF option on FantasyScore.

Indians | Trevor Bauer scratched from start

Sat, 25 Apr 2015 10:22:09 -0700

Cleveland Indians SP Trevor Bauer (illness) was scratched from his scheduled start against the Detroit Tigers Saturday, April 25, due to illness. P TJ House started in his place.

Fantasy Tip: Bauer has pitched very well this season, going 2-0 with a 0.95 ERA through his first three outings. He had to cut short his pregame long toss routine because of the illness and it is unknown when he will pitch again.

Indians | Roberto Perez not in lineup

Sat, 25 Apr 2015 07:41:08 -0700

Cleveland Indians C Roberto Perez is not in the starting lineup Saturday, April 25. C Brett Hayes will be the starting catcher for the Indians.

Fantasy Tip: Perez ($2,000, 4.0% of cap) played Friday, April 24, so he is probably receiving a day off. Hayes ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) has received only five at-bats this season and probably is not the best option for owners on FantasyScore.

Indians | Big night for Brandon Moss

Fri, 24 Apr 2015 20:31:32 -0700

Cleveland Indians OF Brandon Moss went 3-for-5 with two home runs, seven RBIs and two runs scored in a 13-1 win over the Detroit Tigers Friday, April 24.

Fantasy Tip: Moss ($3,600, 7.2% of cap) isn't going to win a batting title any time soon, but seven of his nine hits this season have been for extra bases, including three homers. He is a high-risk, high-reward option at FantasyScore, and he should be exclusively used against right-handed starters.

Indians | Michael Brantley finding his stroke

Fri, 24 Apr 2015 20:19:51 -0700

Cleveland Indians OF Michael Brantley went 3-for-4 with three singles, an RBI and a run scored in a 13-1 win over the Detroit Tigers Friday, April 24, and he is hitting .368 over his last five games.

Fantasy Tip: Brantley's ($5,400, 10.8% of cap) average in on the rise, but he still has just two extra-base hits on the year. The back injury that kept him sidelined earlier the year could be sapping his power a bit, and he is still a bit overpriced at FantasyScore for his current level of production.

Indians | Danny Salazar fans 11

Fri, 24 Apr 2015 20:09:10 -0700

Cleveland Indians SP Danny Salazar improved to 2-0 with a win over the Detroit Tigers Friday, April 24, allowing one run on six hits in seven innings while striking out a career-high 11.

Fantasy Tip: In two starts since joining the rotation, Salazar has piled up 21 strikeouts while posting a 2.08 ERA. Check to see if he is available on the waiver wire in seasonal formats, and check out his price tag at FantasyScore when he is added to the player pool. His strikeout potential gives him intriguing upside.

Indians | Nick Swisher timeline update

Fri, 24 Apr 2015 14:47:01 -0700

Cleveland Indians OF/1B Nick Swisher (knee) will play with Triple-A Columbus Friday, April 24, and Saturday, April 25, according to manager Terry Francona. Francona added Swisher will join the team Monday, April 27, to work out and discuss the next steps in his path to rejoining the team.

Fantasy Tip: Swisher ($2,100, 4.2% of cap) has a lot to overcome before he is anything more than an AL-only option. There isn't a clear path to everyday at-bats, and he is returning from two knee surgeries at 34. Plus, he posted career-low numbers in 2014. At this point, it is advised to take a wait-and-see approach with 'Swish' in all formats.

Indians | Manager endorses Cody Allen

Wed, 22 Apr 2015 13:49:35 -0700

Cleveland Indians RP Cody Allen received a vote of confidence from manager Terry Francona Tuesday, April 21. "Cody is about as trustworthy and dependable as anyone we have," said Francona. "Monday night wasn't a lot of fun, but if there's anybody we believe in, he's right at the top of the list."

Fantasy Tip: Allen rewarded his managers endorsement with a three-strikeout save Tuesday. Until he is removed from the role, which seems unlikely at this point, Allen should be viewed as a mid-tier save candidate. He has an 11.7 K/9 over the past three seasons, too.

Indians | Tribe closer unknown for Wednesday

Wed, 22 Apr 2015 09:52:12 -0700

Cleveland Indians manager Terry Francona said he wasn't sure who would pitch if a save chance occurred Wednesday, April 22.

Fantasy Tip: Bryan Shaw could pick up the save chance after Cody Allen threw 48 pitches the last two days. If you have daily waivers, he's worth consideration for a speculative pickup today.
