The Cleveland Indians have purchased the contracts of RP Scott Atchison and OF Nyjer Morgan from Triple-A Columbus.
Fantasy Tip: At one point, Atchison and Blake Wood were battling for the final spot in the Cleveland bullpen but both relievers ended up making the 25-man roster. Neither pitcher carries any fantasy value. On the other hand, Morgan might be worth a look in AL-only leagues, with OF Michael Bourn (hamstring) beginning the season on the disabled list.

The Cleveland Indians optioned SP Trevor Bauer and RP C.C. Lee to Triple-A Columbus Monday, March 24, meaning SPs Carlos Carrasco and Josh Tomlin will battle for the final rotation spot. RPs Scott Atchison and Blake Wood are fighting for the final bullpen job. 3B Lonnie Chisenhall was told he will make the active roster, as well. The Indians also re-assigned 1Bs Bryan LaHair and David Cooper and C Luke Carlin.
Fantasy Tip: Bauer can be dumped in standard mixed leagues now, but keep him on your radar. There's a chance he'll be back up soon if a rotation spot opens up.
