Indians | Nick Swisher to return Tuesday

Mon, 04 May 2015 11:35:08 -0700

Cleveland Indians 1B Nick Swisher (knee) will be activated from the disabled list Tuesday, May 5, and OF Tyler Holt will be demoted to the minors to make room on the active roster.

Fantasy Tip: Swisher ($2,100, 4.2% of cap) is likely to be eased into the lineup initially, so he'll probably be a weak play at FantasyScore in the beginning. His return is likely to take away already limited at-bats from David Murphy ($1,900, 3.8% of cap).

Indians | Jason Kipnis hitting well at leadoff

Sun, 03 May 2015 15:01:17 -0700

Cleveland Indians 2B Jason Kipnis is hitting well in the first seven games he's been in the leadoff spot. Kipnis has a .930 on base plus slugging percentage.

Fantasy Tip: Owners of Kipnis ($4,800, 9.6% of cap) have to be delighted with this development, and he should be in your daily lineup as long as this hot streak continues.

Indians | Ryan Raburn likes hitting lefties

Sun, 03 May 2015 14:34:56 -0700

Cleveland Indians OF Ryan Raburn is hitting .400 overall with 10 RBIs in 40 at-bats, including a .457 average (16-for-35) against left-handers.

Fantasy Tip: Raburn ($1,900, 3.8% of cap) doesn't play much against righties at all, but he is worth a low-cost flier against some left-handed pitching based on the matchup. He seems to have shaken off injuries from 2014.

Indians | Michael Bourn back in lineup

Sun, 03 May 2015 12:56:09 -0700

Cleveland Indians OF Michael Bourn (neck) returned to the starting lineup against the Toronto Blue Jays Sunday, May 3, after missing one game due to a neck strain.

Fantasy Tip: Entering play Sunday, Bourn ($2,600, 5.2% of cap) was hitting only .202 through 21 games, with an on-base percentage of .264. Avoid him in FantasyScore for the foreseeable future until he shows signs of snapping out of his season-long funk.

Indians | Roberto Perez sitting out

Sun, 03 May 2015 08:16:21 -0700

Cleveland Indians C Roberto Perez is not in the starting lineup Sunday, May 3. C Brett Hayes will be the starting catcher for the Indians.

Fantasy Tip: Perez ($2,800, 5.6% of cap) likely will return to the lineup in the next game. Hayes ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) has not had much success at the plate this season but both of his hits on the season have been home runs. Owners on FantasyScore should be able to find better options.

Indians | Hope for Corey Kluber?

Sat, 02 May 2015 18:13:04 -0700

Cleveland Indians SP Corey Kluber had a 4.14 ERA in six April starts last season, but he posted a 2.13 ERA in his final 28 starts.

Fantasy Tip: Kluber ($8,800, 17.6% of cap) currently owns a 4.62 ERA after six April starts this season, but his fantasy owners in seasonal leagues have reason to believe he will turn things around going forward. That being said, he should be avoided at FantasyScore until he has a couple of strong starts under his belt.

Indians | Michael Bourn has neck strain

Sat, 02 May 2015 12:25:47 -0700

Cleveland Indians OF Michael Bourn (neck) has been scratched from the starting lineup against the Toronto Blue Jays Saturday, May 2, because of a neck strain.

Fantasy Tip: OF Tyler Holt will start in center field in Bourn's place. He is not available in FantasyScore and holds little fantasy value.

Indians | T.J. House to DL

Sat, 02 May 2015 02:21:44 -0700

Cleveland Indians SP T.J. House (shoulder) was placed on the 15-day disabled list with a sore shoulder.

Fantasy Tip: House ($3,500, 7.0% of cap) has had some terrible luck in games as of late, but this may be the reason why he has struggled. Remove House from all active lineups immediately.

Indians | Michael Brantley hits first home run

Fri, 01 May 2015 19:20:54 -0700

Cleveland Indians OF Michael Brantley went 2-for-5 with a two-run home run and two runs scored in a 9-4 win over the Toronto Blue Jays Friday, May 1. It was his first home run of the year.

Fantasy Tip: Brantley ($5,300, 10.6% of cap) is hitting .344 for the year, and his power stroke is starting to come around. Three of his eight extra-base hits have come in the last two games. Consider jumping on the Brantley bandwagon at FantasyScore.

Indians | Yan Gomes aggressive in rehab

Fri, 01 May 2015 13:40:25 -0700

Cleveland Indians C Yan Gomes (knee) has been "an animal" in his rehab from a knee injury, according to manager Terry Francona. Gomes is progressing rapidly and will travel with the team to add baseball activities.

Fantasy Tip: Gomes is unlikely to return for around another month, so you'll need to be patient and continue to stash him in a DL slot. Roberto Perez ($2,800, 5.6% of cap) has been handling the majority of catching duties in his absence, and he has nine hits (three home runs) in 43 at-bats. Perez has some pop, but he's inconsistent, making him a weak catching option at FantasyScore.

Indians | Roberto Perez sitting vs. Jay Birds

Fri, 01 May 2015 12:42:47 -0700

Cleveland Indians C Roberto Perez is not in the starting lineup against the Toronto Blue Jays Friday, May 1. C Brett Hayes is starting behind the plate and batting eighth.

Fantasy Tip: Perez ($2,800, 5.6% of cap) has been widely inconsistent this season with two three-hit games and eight hitless showings over his last 10 outings. He is a high-risk, high-reward option for daily contests. Hayes ($1,600, 3.2%) has gone 1-for-11 at the plate this season, and cap relief is the only thing he brings to the FantasyScore table.

Indians | Yan Gomes taking dry swings

Wed, 29 Apr 2015 21:42:29 -0700

Cleveland Indians C Yan Gomes (knee) has started to take dry swings, manager Terry Francona said Wednesday, April 29. The team said Gomes would miss six to eight weeks when he sprained his right knee April 10.

Fantasy Tip: Perhaps Gomes will return closer to the six-week mark than the latter, but he is still a ways off from game action. FantasyScore players can avoid Gomes for now. Roberto Perez ($2,800; or 5.6% of cap) is the guy to focus on for DFS players.

Indians | Roberto Perez snaps out of funk

Wed, 29 Apr 2015 21:41:58 -0700

Cleveland Indians C Roberto Perez snapped an 0-for-18 slide Wednesday, April 29, against the Kansas City Royals, posting a home run and finishing with three hits, two RBIs, a walk and three runs scored.

Fantasy Tip: Perez ($2,800; or 5.6% of cap) continues to fill in for the injured Yan Gomes, but he hasn't done much of anything lately. Perhaps this will get him back on track and make him attractive to FantasyScore players again.

Indians | Danny Salazar wins third straight

Wed, 29 Apr 2015 21:41:28 -0700

Cleveland Indians SP Danny Salazar allowed four earned runs, six hits and no walks with seven strikeouts over six innings and he also hit a batsman Wednesday, April 29, against the Kansas City Royals.

Fantasy Tip: Salazar tied a career-best with his third straight victory. At $5,300 (or 10.6% of cap) he has been a strong mid-level FantasyScore value thanks to his strikeouts and victories.

Indians | Danny Salazar looks to match best

Tue, 28 Apr 2015 20:10:03 -0700

Cleveland Indians SP Danny Salazar is the probable pitcher for Wednesday, April 29, against the Kansas City Royals. He is looking to match a career-high three-game winning streak.

Fantasy Tip: Last time out Salazar whiffed a career-high 11 batters against Detroit while limiting them to one run over seven innings. He has re-emerged as a solid fantasy option across all formats due to his high strikeout totals.
