Indians | Rajai Davis leading off

Tue, 26 Jul 2016 14:06:30 -0700

Cleveland Indians OF Rajai Davis is batting first in the starting lineup against Washington Nationals SP Gio Gonzalez Tuesday, July 26. 1B Carlos Santana is batting fifth in the lineup.

Fantasy Tip: Davis has four hits and one RBI over the last four games and would receive extra at-bats if he remains in the leadoff spot. Davis can be an option in daily fantasy leagues but is not a strong option. Santana has posted solid numbers this season and is a fine starting option in most leagues.

Indians | Carlos Santana hitting fifth Tuesday

Tue, 19 Jul 2016 13:27:58 -0700

Cleveland Indians DH Carlos Santana will hit fifth against Kansas City Royals SP Brian Flynn on Tuesday, July 19.

Fantasy Tip: Santana normally is the leadoff hitter, so this is somewhat of a surprise. OF Rajai Davis is in the lead spot, so the team may want speed. Still, Santana (.254-20-51) will get plenty of at-bats in the middle of the lineup, so he is definitely recommended.

Blue Jays | Ryan Goins, Darwin Barney pitch Friday

Fri, 01 Jul 2016 17:25:22 -0700

Toronto Blue Jays INFs Ryan Goins and Darwin Barney each made one-inning relief appearances in a 19-inning loss to the Toronto Blue Jays Friday, July 1. Goins allowed two hits and one walk without allowing a run, while Barney allowed a solo home run to DH Carlos Santana and struck out one batter. Barney was tagged with the loss.

Fantasy Tip: Neither veteran infielder had pitched before in their pro career and for fantasy baseball purposes, these relief outings are meaningless. Barney is batting .294 with three home runs and 10 RBI through 160 at-bats and is worth rostering in AL-only fantasy leagues, while Goins is hitting just .176 and isn't a recommended option in any format.

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 | Rajai Davis sitting vs. Braves

Tue, 28 Jun 2016 13:03:09 -0700

Cleveland Indians OF Rajai Davis is not in the starting lineup Tuesday, June 28. 1B Carlos Santana is leading off against Atlanta Braves SP Matt Wisler Tuesday.

Fantasy Tip: Davis is having a rebound fantasy season because of his added playing time and returned 36 runs, seven home runs, 28 RBI and 21 stolen bases with a .263/.328/.409. The speed alone makes him a viable option in all fantasy leagues. Santana receives a slight boost in daily contests Tuesday, but otherwise, there isn't a significant fantasy impact to Santana leading off. He should be viewed as a low-end starter at first base in the majority of formats.

Indians | Carlos Santana out

Mon, 27 Jun 2016 13:21:54 -0700

Cleveland Indians 1B Carlos Santana is not in the starting lineup against Atlanta Braves SP John Gant Monday, June 27, because the team is not using a designated hitter.

Fantasy Tip: It is not known if Santana will receive any starts during the series against the Braves but should be used as a pinch hitter if he does not start. He is a solid fantasy starter when he is in the lineup.

Indians | Two more hits for Carlos Santana

Wed, 22 Jun 2016 19:45:01 -0700

Cleveland Indians 1B Carlos Santana went 2-for-3 with a double, walk, two runs scored and two RBIs while serving as the leadoff hitter and designated hitter Wednesday, June 22, against the Tampa Bay Rays.

Fantasy Tip: Santana wrapped up the homestand with a double, two homers and five RBIs in six games, and he has six clouts with 13 RBIs in the month of June. After a dismal start, he is putting up more extra-base hits. However, his batting average still leaves something to be desired for fantasy owners in rotisserie formats.
