Indians | Lonnie Chisenhall off the DL

Wed, 20 Apr 2016 11:07:43 -0700

Cleveland Indians OF Lonnie Chisenhall (forearm) was activated from the 15-day disabled list Wednesday, April 20, and OF Collin Cowgill was optioned to Class AAA Columbus in a corresponding move.

Fantasy Tip: Chisenhall figures to platoon in one of the corner outfield spots, most likely right field with Marlon Byrd. Byrd's value takes a slight hit as a result. Chisenhall doesn't excel in any one area and is mainly a candidate for AL-only leagues and for cushy daily matchups.

Indians | Marlon Byrd sitting out

Sat, 09 Apr 2016 08:38:19 -0700

Cleveland Indians OF Marlon Byrd will not be in the starting lineup against Chicago White Sox SP Chris Sale Saturday, April 9. OF Collin Cowgill will start in right field and is batting ninth in the lineup.

Fantasy Tip: Cowgill went hitless in his only other start this season and is not a great option in any league.

Indians | Rajai Davis takes a seat

Wed, 06 Apr 2016 11:36:08 -0700

Cleveland Indians OF Rajai Davis and OF Collin Cowgill are out of the lineup Wednesday, April 6, in favor of OFs Jose Ramirez and Tyler Naquin.

Fantasy Tip: Ramirez is in a nice spot between Francisco Lindor and Jason Kipnis in the two-hole while Naquin is hitting ninth. Ramirez might be a plug-and-play option against Clay Buchholz. We need to see more from Naquin, though.

Indians | Collin Cowgill in right field

Tue, 05 Apr 2016 06:48:38 -0700

Cleveland Indians OF Collin Cowgill is hitting ninth and playing right field in the season opener Tuesday, April 4.

Fantasy Tip: The back of Cowgill's baseball card doesn't show much in the form of production. He's merely depth in AL-only leagues for now.

Indians | Lonnie Chisenhall to start on DL

Mon, 28 Mar 2016 09:55:48 -0700

Cleveland Indians OF Lonnie Chisenhall (wrist) will open the season on the disabled list with a left wrist issue, according to manager Terry Francona. OFs Marlon Byrd and Collin Cowgill have made the roster.

Fantasy Tip: With both Chisenhall and Michael Brantley starting on the sidelines, it opens up notable playing time for spring standout Tyler Naquin, Rajai Davis and Byrd and Cowgill. Naquin and Davis could split time in center field, with Byrd and Cowgill splitting time in right. Naquin might be the most intriguing in the short term in AL-only leagues right now.

Indians | Collin Cowgill on the bubble

Mon, 21 Mar 2016 23:04:29 -0700

Cleveland Indians OF Collin Cowgill is considered on the bubble for a roster spot. He helped his cause with a double in the Cactus League spring game against the Chicago White Sox Monday, March 21.

Fantasy Tip: Cowgill is only worth a look in deeper AL-only fantasy leagues in the final rounds even if he wins a roster spot.

Indians | Collin Cowgill using specialized bat

Sat, 27 Feb 2016 19:15:48 -0800

Cleveland Indians OF Collin Cowgill (wrist) had wrist injuries last season, but he has been pain-free for a while now. He has been using a specialized bat with an axe-style knob, something Boston Red Sox 2B Dustin Pedroia suggested to him.

Fantasy Tip: Cowgill is working for a bench job with the Indians and would only be worth using in deeper AL-only fantasy leagues unless he inexplicably works his way into a starting job at some point.

Indians | Cleveland to have RF platoon?

Thu, 25 Feb 2016 16:46:02 -0800

Cleveland Indians OFs Lonnie Chisenhall and Collin Cowgill could be involved in a platoon in right field this year, according to manager Terry Francona. Chisenhall has hit .261 in his career against righties and just .241 against lefties. Cowgill, on the other hand, is a career .271 hitter against lefties and just a .200 hitter against right-handers.

Fantasy Tip: Chisenhall would get the strong end of a straight platoon here, so he'd be the more attractive fantasy commodity, but probably only in AL-only leagues. Double-digit home runs aren't a lock, and Chisenhall doesn't run much, either.

Indians | Lonnie Chisenhall to play RF

Mon, 25 Jan 2016 15:30:31 -0800

Cleveland Indians OF Lonnie Chisenhall is expected to see the bulk of at-bats in right field in 2016, considering he hits better against right-handed pitching. OF Collin Cowgill could platoon with Chisenhall in right, but he can also play center and left field.

Fantasy Tip: Because he likely won't be an everyday player, Chisenhall is more of a late-round target in deep mixed leagues and AL-only formats. He had six of his seven home runs against righties in 2015, so he's certainly a streaming option when facing the right right-hander.

Angels | Collin Cowgill batting seventh

Sat, 05 Sep 2015 17:34:40 -0700

Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim OF Collin Cowgill will bat seventh against Texas Rangers SP Derek Holland Saturday, Sept. 5.

Fantasy Tip: Cowgill ($2,100, 4.2% of cap) owns an ugly .177 batting average this year, so he isn't worth taking a chance on at FantasyScore.
