Indians | Brandon Moss drives in five

Wed, 01 Jul 2015 20:20:20 -0700

Cleveland Indians 1B Brandon Moss went 2-for-4 with a home run, a double and five RBI in an 8-1 win over the Tampa Bay Rays Wednesday, July 1.

Fantasy Tip: Moss ($4,300, 8.6% of cap) is a boom-or-bust play at FantasyScore that offers solid power potential but very little consistency. If you can catch him on the right night, he can be an X-factor for your lineup.

Indians | Carlos Carrasco flirts with no-hitter

Wed, 01 Jul 2015 19:55:40 -0700

Cleveland Indians SP Carlos Carrasco (10-6) allowed one run on one hit over 8 2/3 innings in a victory over the Tampa Bay Rays Wednesday, July 1, with two walks and 13 strikeouts. He carried a perfect game into the seventh inning, retiring the first 19 batters before walking OF Joey Butler. However, Carrasco kept the no-hitter until allowing a single to Butler on an 0-2 count with two outs in the ninth inning. This marked the third consecutive night the Indians have carried a perfect game into the sixth inning against the Rays and if he had been successful, it would have been the first Cleveland no-hitter since 1981.

Fantasy Tip: With the win, Carrasco ($6,600, 13.2% of cap) reached double-digit victories for the first time in his major league career. He ended up throwing a career-high 124 pitches in the game, so it will be interesting to see how he bounces back in his next scheduled start against the Houston Astros next week.

Indians | Yan Gomes sitting out vs. Rays

Wed, 01 Jul 2015 15:05:50 -0700

Cleveland Indians C Yan Gomes is not in the starting lineup Wednesday, July 1. C Roberto Perez is starting behind the plate and batting ninth against Tampa Bay Rays SP Alex Colome Wednesday.

Fantasy Tip: Make sure to avoid Gomes ($3,700, 7.4% of cap) in all formats Wednesday. He missed a huge chunk of the season with a knee injury, and he has struggled since returning with a .215/.232/.344 slash line. In relation to his cost, Perez ($2,100, 4.2% of cap) has a respectable .779 OPS, so he is a low-priced flier for FantasyScore players Wednesday.

Indians | Mike Aviles batting second

Wed, 01 Jul 2015 14:55:36 -0700

Cleveland Indians SS Mike Aviles is starting at shortstop and batting second against Tampa Bay Rays Alex Colome Wednesday, July 1, with SS Francisco Lindor out of the starting lineup.

Fantasy Tip: Hitting in the two-hole, Aviles ($3,200, 6.4% of cap) is a worthy low-priced flier for FantasyScore players. Expect Lindor ($4,000, 8.0% of cap) to return to the lineup sooner than later. Although, his fantasy value is quite limited, as he sports a .211/.258/.281 slash line over his first 15 games.

Indians | Danny Salazar flirts with no-hitter

Tue, 30 Jun 2015 20:17:04 -0700

Cleveland Indians SP Danny Salazar allowed two runs - one earned - and two hits over 7 2/3 innings with two hits and two strikeouts in a win Tuesday, June 30, against the Tampa Bay Rays. He had a no-hitter into the sixth inning.

Fantasy Tip: Salazar ($7,200; or 14.4% of cap) actually let his FantasyScore players down with the two strikeouts, as he entered play in the Top 5 in K/9 ratio. Still, a win is a win and he remains a must-start more often than not.

Indians | Giovanny Urshela's hit streak at nine

Tue, 30 Jun 2015 20:16:31 -0700

Cleveland Indians 3B Giovanny Urshela went 1-for-4 with a home run and three RBIs Tuesday, June 30, against the Tampa Bay Rays to extend his hitting streak to nine games.

Fantasy Tip: Urshela ($3,000; or 6.0% of cap) has emerged as a reliable FantasyScore option, especially at this price level. He is 9-for-30 (.300) with two runs scored, a homer and three RBIs during the nine-game run. He won't hit for a lot of power, but he'll pick up a few points here and there.

Indians | Nick Swisher progressing

Tue, 30 Jun 2015 09:30:51 -0700

Cleveland Indians 1B Nick Swisher (knee) participated in a light workout on Monday, June 29, after "pretty physical workouts" over the weekend. Swisher is working his way back from a knee injury and has been taking batting practice and running in the outfield.

Fantasy Tip: Swisher ($2,100, 4.2% of cap) is an affordable, low-end option on FantasyScore, but he will have to significantly improve on his 2014 and 2015 numbers to earn full time at-bats in a crowded Indians lineup. He only justifies a roster spot in the deepest of mixed leagues.

Indians | Yan Gomes has breakout game

Mon, 29 Jun 2015 20:14:49 -0700

Cleveland Indians C Yan Gomes had three hits, including a solo home run, in the win Monday, June 29, against the Tampa Bay Rays.

Fantasy Tip: Gomes ($3,700; or 7.4% of cap) had his first multi-hit performance in 12 games dating back to June 10 when his average was at .239. He entered the game Monday just 4-for-37 in the past 11 games to drop his average to .192. He needs to have a few more games like this before you can trust him in FantasyScore again.

Indians | Cody Anderson flirts with perfection

Mon, 29 Jun 2015 20:13:58 -0700

Cleveland Indians SP Cody Anderson carried a perfect game into the seventh inning Monday, June 29, against the Tampa Bay Rays in his second major league start. He ended up allowing one run, two hits and no walks with two strikeouts over eight inning in the win.

Fantasy Tip: Anderson ($4,000; or 8.0% of cap) has posted a 1-0 record with a 0.57 ERA over his first two starts, emerging as a useful and surprising FantasyScore option.

Indians | Roberto Perez catching Game 2

Sun, 28 Jun 2015 14:08:33 -0700

Cleveland Indians C Roberto Perez is catching in game two of the doubleheader against the Baltimore Orioles on Sunday, June 28.

Fantasy Tip: Perez ($2,100, 4.2% of cap) is in the game because Yan Gomes caught the first game earlier in the day. Gomes had been hurt and Perez swung a good bat in his absence. He is 4-for-10 with a homer in the last week, so feel good about starting him.

Indians | Corey Kluber fans 10 Friday

Fri, 26 Jun 2015 19:50:47 -0700

Cleveland Indians SP Corey Kluber allowed three runs on seven hits over seven innings in a no-decision against the Baltimore Orioles Friday, June 26, with one walk and 10 strikeouts.

Fantasy Tip: Kluber ($8,900, 17.8% of cap) is still searching for his first win since May 28, and he finished the month of June with an 0-4 record in five starts. On a positive note, he recorded double-digit strikeouts for the 16th time since the beginning of the 2014 season, tying Chicago White Sox SP Chris Sale for the most games with 10 or more strikeouts over that stretch.

Indians | Jason Kipnis extends hitting streak

Fri, 26 Jun 2015 19:39:34 -0700

Cleveland Indians 2B Jason Kipnis extended his career-best hitting streak to 20 games with a fifth-inning infield single against the Baltimore Orioles Friday, June 26.

Fantasy Tip: Kipnis ($5,500, 11.0% of cap) is now batting .351 on the season and leads the American League with 100 hits. He remains a must-start player in FantasyScore and all seasonal fantasy leagues.

Indians | Nick Swisher rehab update

Fri, 26 Jun 2015 19:33:11 -0700

Cleveland Indians 1B/OF Nick Swisher (knee) participated in "position specific" speed and agility drills in the outfield Friday, June 26, according to manager Terry Francona.

Fantasy Tip: There is no timetable for Swisher's ($2,100, 4.2% of cap) return from the disabled list. He was only batting .198 with two home runs and eight RBIs through 30 games before being sidelined and is not worth stashing in seasonal leagues. However, he could be somewhat useful in FantasyScore if he has a favorable matchup.

Indians | Mike Aviles draws start Friday

Fri, 26 Jun 2015 13:24:39 -0700

Cleveland Indians SS Mike Aviles is starting in left field and hitting ninth against Baltimore Orioles SP Wei-Yin Chen Friday, June 26. OF Michael Bourn is out of the lineup against a left-handed pitcher.

Fantasy Tip: Aviles ($3,200, 6.4% of cap) is batting .253 (20-for-79) with two of his three home runs against left-handed pitchers in 2015, but there isn't much fantasy upside to him, especially when hitting at the bottom of the lineup. He's a weak play on FantasyScore.

Indians | Jason Kipnis extends hitting streak

Wed, 24 Jun 2015 16:29:06 -0700

Cleveland Indians 2B Jason Kipnis extended his hitting streak to 19 games in a win Wednesday, June 24. He also extended his home hitting streak to 28 straight games, which is the longest at home for any player in team history since Miguel Dilone in 1980. Kipnis is batting .500 (54-for-108) with 17 doubles, three home runs and 15 RBI during his 28-game home hitting streak. It's the longest current home streak and best since Colorado Rockies OF Carlos Gonzalez hit in 29 straight home games in 2012. He went 1-for-3 in the game with two runs scored, two walks and a strikeout, and his season average now sits at .354.

Fantasy Tip: Kipnis ($5,500, 11.0% of cap) is a force to be reckoned with and can't be stopped right now. Continue riding the hot hand on FantasyScore unless he's facing a tough left-handed pitcher.
