Sat, 04 Jul 2015 10:36:34 -0700

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 | Michael Bourn in lineup vs. Tigers

Wed, 24 Jun 2015 09:10:13 -0700

Cleveland Indians OF Michael Bourn is back in the starting lineup against Detroit Tigers SP Buck Farmer, who is making a spot start Wednesday, June 24. Bourn is starting in center field and hitting eighth.

Fantasy Tip: Bourn ($2,800, 5.6% of cap) is hitting only .237 (47-for-198) on the season with no homers, 14 RBI and five stolen bases. He shouldn't excite FantasyScore users, but a matchup with Farmer could make him a successful deep sleeper pick Wednesday to save cap space elsewhere.

Indians | Michael Bourn sitting vs. Tigers

Mon, 22 Jun 2015 13:16:06 -0700

Cleveland Indians OF Michael Bourn is not in the starting lineup Monday, June 22. SS Mike Aviles draws into the lineup starting in left field and batting sixth against Detroit Tigers SP Kyle Ryan.

Fantasy Tip: Bourn ($2,800, 5.6% of cap) has a .139/.205/.139 slash line over his past 14 games, and he has just five stolen bases this season. Outside of AL-only and cavernous mixed leagues, he holds minimal value. Aviles ($3,200, 6.4% of cap) has a respectable .260/.345/.370 slash line vs. lefties this season, and he stands as value option at shortstop for FantasyScore players Monday.

Indians | Michael Bourn returns to lineup

Thu, 18 Jun 2015 14:28:49 -0700

Cleveland Indians OF Michael Bourn is starting in center field and batting eighth against Chicago Cubs SP Jason Hammel Thursday, June 18.

Fantasy Tip: Bourn ($2,300, 4.6% of cap) hasn't offered fantasy owners much to get excited about at the dish this season with a .242 batting average and a .606 OPS. Add a tough matchup against Hammel, and there is no reason to view Bourn as anything more than a desperation source of cap relief Thursday.

Indians | Michael Bourn better down in order

Wed, 27 May 2015 15:27:59 -0700

Cleveland Indians OF Michael Bourn had a stolen base, two RBI and three hits in the win Wednesday, May 27, and he has hit much better since being dropped from the leadoff spot last month. Bourn has a slash line of .300/.378/.388 with 10 walks, 11 runs scored and 16 strikeouts in 80 at-bats in 27 games since being removed as the leadoff hitter April 26. He had a line of .180/.254/.213 with just six walks, six runs and 16 strikeouts in 61 at-bats in the previous 15 games.

Fantasy Tip: Most of the time, anytime a hitter is dropped that far down the lineup, it usually hurts their fantasy value. In Bourn's ($2,300, 4.6% of cap) case, it's been the opposite. However, he's still more of a low-end outfield option that should only be started against right-handers at FantasyScore. Bourn has a slash line of .204/.286/.265 against southpaws this year.

Indians | Michael Bourn not starting Tuesday

Tue, 26 May 2015 11:36:38 -0700

Cleveland Indians OF Michael Bourn is not starting Tuesday, May 26. The Indians shifted OF Michael Brantley to center field for the night, and OF Ryan Raburn is in left.

Fantasy Tip: Bourn ($2,300, 4.6% of cap) is hitting better at the plate, and it looks like manager Terry Francona just shifted his lineup to get Bourn a night off. Raburn ($1,900, 3.8% of cap) has one hit in his last 15 plate appearances and carries little fantasy value.
