Indians | Juan Uribe back in lineup Sunday

Sun, 26 Jun 2016 08:34:31 -0700

Cleveland Indians 3B Juan Uribe is back in the starting lineup against Detroit Tigers SP Justin Verlander Sunday, June 26, with INF Jose Ramirez playing second base and INF/OF Michael Martinez playing left field. 2B Jason Kipnis (illness) and OF Rajai Davis are receiving the day off.

Fantasy Tip: Uribe is hitting just .196 over the past four weeks and is not a recommended fantasy option this afternoon. Martinez is 6-for-13 (.462) with a home run and two RBI over the past two weeks and can be viewed as a productive source of salary cap relief in DFS.

Indians | Jason Kipnis left with illness

Sat, 25 Jun 2016 16:38:20 -0700

Cleveland Indians 2B Jason Kipnis (illness) left the game Saturday, June 25, due to illness.

Fantasy Tip: Check his status Sunday because he's obviously a daily consideration in DFS. Jose Ramirez is a regular utility player anyway, and he could start at second with a low-end play consideration.

Indians | Jason Kipnis, Tyler Naquin out

Sun, 12 Jun 2016 10:44:20 -0700

Cleveland Indians 2B Jason Kipnis and OF Tyler Naquin are not in the starting lineup against Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim SP David Huff Sunday, June 12. SS Jose Ramirez will start at second base, while 3B Juan Uribe will start at third base and is batting seventh in the lineup. 2B Michael Martinez will start in center field and is batting ninth.

Fantasy Tip: Ramirez has been a solid fantast player for owners and should continue to be used in starting lineups. Uribe has only one hit in his last 18 at-bats and should be avoided in all leagues. Martinez is hitting .286 in limited playing time but does not have any RBI on the season, so owners should look for other options to use.

Indians | Jason Kipnis, Yan Gomes resting

Tue, 24 May 2016 14:27:27 -0700

Cleveland Indians 2B Jason Kipnis and C Yan Gomes are not in the starting lineup Tuesday, May 24. 3B/OF Jose Ramirez is starting at second base and is hitting second, while C Chris Gimenez draws the start behind the plate and is batting eighth against Chicago White Sox SP Chris Sale.

Fantasy Tip: Ramirez has been solid for the Tribe this year while moving around multiple positions, but the matchup against the 9-0 Sale is one to avoid him in in daily formats. Gimenez is a no-brainer to avoid, as well. The backup catcher has a slash line of .182/.217/.318 with one home run and one RBI in 22 at-bats.

Indians | Two Indians sitting out

Mon, 23 May 2016 17:39:40 -0700

Cleveland Indians 1B Mike Napoli and C Yan Gomes are not in the starting lineup for the second game of a doubleheader against the Chicago White Sox Monday, May 23. 1B Carlos Santana will start at first base, while 2B Jason Kipnis will serve as the designated hitter. C Chris Gimenez will start at catcher and is batting eighth. 2B Michael Martinez will start at second base and is batting ninth against White Sox SP Erik Johnson.

Fantasy Tip: Gimenez has only one hit in his last at-bats and should be avoided in most leagues. Martinez went 2-for-4 in the first game of the doubleheader but is still not a great starting candidate.

Wed, 11 May 2016 17:18:23 -0700

Cleveland Indians 2B Jason Kipnis went 5-for-7 with an RBI in the game against the Houston Astros Wednesday, May 11.

Fantasy Tip: All of Kipnis' hits were singles and he raised his average from .263 to .288 with the performance. He should continue to be viewed as a solid option at the keystone position, although he is not the 20-20 threat he once was.

Indians | Jason Kipnis streaking

Fri, 29 Apr 2016 21:49:27 -0700

Cleveland Indians 2B Jason Kipnis extended his hitting streak to eight games, going 1-for-4 with a two-run home run and a walk in a 4-3 loss to the Philadelphia Phillies Friday, April 29.

Fantasy Tip: Kipnis has two home runs, five RBI and five runs scored during the streak, and while he isn't the 20-20 threat he used to be, he is still a starting-caliber second baseman in all formats.
