Cleveland Indians 1B Mike Napoli went 1-for-5 with a solo home run versus the Minnesota Twins on Sunday, July 17.

Fantasy Tip: Napoli's ugly road splits took a break in Minnesota this weekend, as he went 5-for-12 with two solo shots and four runs scored during the three-game set to raise his marks away from home to .215 with seven homers and 19 RBI away from Cleveland (.292, 13 home runs and 44 RBI at home).

Indians | Mike Napoli continues to rake at home

Mon, 04 Jul 2016 22:16:03 -0700

Cleveland Indians 1B Mike Napoli belted a tiebreaking two-run home run and finished 2-for-3 with a walk and two runs scored in a 5-3 win over the Detroit Tigers on Monday, July 4.

Fantasy Tip: Despite logging 43 more at-bats away from Cleveland this season, Napoli is batting .286 with 12 homers and 39 RBI at Progressive Field, as opposed to .201 with five home runs and 17 RBI on the road. The 34-year-old slugger hits in the middle of the order for one of the best lineups in baseball, so his owners need to keep starting him in spite of the huge difference in his road and home splits.

Indians | Carlos Santana out in NL park

Wed, 29 Jun 2016 12:47:21 -0700

Cleveland Indians 1B Carlos Santana is not in the starting lineup against the Atlanta Braves and SP Joel De La Cruz Wednesday, June 29, without the designated hitter in a National League park. 1B Mike Napoli is at first base and is hitting cleanup.

Fantasy Tip: Napoli doesn't hit for average and strikes out often, but he's been a great waiver wire find this year with 16 home runs and 52 RBI in his first year in Cleveland. Against a pitcher making his major league debut tonight, Napoli needs to be fired up in all fantasy lineups.

Indians | Mike Napoli sitting vs. Atlanta

Tue, 28 Jun 2016 13:10:31 -0700

Cleveland 1B Mike Napoli is not in the starting lineup against the Atlanta Braves Tuesday, June 28.

Fantasy Tip: Without the option to utilize a designated hitter in the road game at Atlanta, Napoli is the odd-man out Tuesday. Napoli's batting average is nothing to write home about (.242), but his 45 runs, 16 home runs and 52 RBI are providing a solid three-category return. At this point, Napoli should be owned in the majority of seasonal leagues.
