Indians | Passed on Josh Willingham

Sun, 17 Aug 2014 00:20:53 -0700

Although the Cleveland Indians are on the fringe of the playoff race, they passed on OF Josh Willingham when offered. The Indians offered Willingham a two-year contract in 2012 but he signed with the Minnesota Twins for three seasons. Sources indicate the third year was the sticking point because they feared Willingham's production would drop, as it has.

Indians | Danny Salazar starting Sunday

Fri, 15 Aug 2014 13:18:27 -0700

Cleveland Indians SP Danny Salazar will be recalled from Triple-A Columbus to start Sunday, Aug. 17, against the Baltimore Orioles, according to manager Terry Francona. Francona noted SP T.J. House will temporarily move to the bullpen.

Fantasy Tip: Santana is a high-risk, high-reward starter for Sunday. He has plus-strikeout potential, but his command has been a serious issue this season. Salazar is worth owning in deep mixed leagues and AL-only formats, if he can stick in the Indians rotation.

Indians | Michael Bourn to play Friday, Saturday

Wed, 13 Aug 2014 11:51:04 -0700

Cleveland Indians OF Michael Bourn (hamstring) will be activated from the disabled list Friday, Aug. 15, and he'll be in the lineup Friday and Saturday, Aug. 16, before taking the day off Sunday, Aug. 17, according to manager Terry Francona.

Fantasy Tip: Check Bourn's availability in your league. He could be useful for stolen bases down the stretch. In daily leagues, you probably will want to hold off on using Bourn immediately, even though he'll likely be a very cheap option.

Indians | Michael Bourn aims to return from DL Friday

Wed, 13 Aug 2014 11:08:06 -0700

Cleveland Indians OF Michael Bourn (hamstring) will serve as the designated hitter for Triple-A Columbus Thursday, Aug. 14, with the goal of returning from the disabled list Friday, Aug. 15.

Fantasy Tip: The Indians could use some offensive and defensive help with both Nick Swisher and David Murphy sidelined due to injuries. Bourn could be a nice addition for the rest of the season if his lower body injuries are completely in the past and he begins to run more often.

Indians | Want to test versatility of Zach Walters

Tue, 12 Aug 2014 19:32:41 -0700

Cleveland Indians SS Zach Walters was used in left field Sunday, Aug. 10, and as the designated hitter Tuesday, Aug. 12. Manager Terry Francona said he wants to test Walters' versatility over the next several weeks. "We need to find out how versatile he can be," Francona said. "With his power and his ability to switch-hit, if he can play short, that's always kind of the key. A guy that can play short and the outfield, that kind of lengthens out your roster."
