Cleveland Indians news, rumors and injuries
Mon, 04 May 2015 11:35:08 -0700
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).

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.

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.
Sun, 03 May 2015 12:56:09 -0700
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.
Sun, 03 May 2015 08:16:21 -0700
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.

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.
Sat, 02 May 2015 12:25:47 -0700
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.
Sat, 02 May 2015 02:21:44 -0700
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.
Fri, 01 May 2015 19:20:54 -0700
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.

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

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.

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