Nothing is official yet, but Cleveland Indians SP Trevor Bauer is expected to be called up to start one of the games of a doubleheader against the San Diego Padres Wednesday, April 9.
Fantasy Tip: Bauer isn't worth addition in most standard leagues, because he's likely to be sent back to the minors after his start. However, he's not a bad streaming option for the day for the matchup against the Friars.

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.

Cleveland Indians SPs Carlos Carrasco, Josh Tomlin, Aaron Harang and Trevor Bauer remain in camp as candidates for the fifth starter job.

Cleveland Indians SPs Trevor Bauer, Josh Tomlin, Carlos Carrasco and Aaron Harang have all pitched well so far this spring and are making the competition for the final two rotation spots, depending on what happens with SP Danny Salazar, an interesting decision. Bauer is showing more control and is throwing harder than he did last spring.

Cleveland Indians SP Trevor Bauer averaged 92.8 mph in four starts in the majors last season, but in two innings Sunday, March 2, in Cactus League action, his fastball was around 93-96 mph, with one pitch clocked at 98 mph, according to a National League scout in attendance.
Fantasy Tip: Bauer is in the mix for a back-end rotation job. Those in AL-only drafts, deeper mixed formats and certainly long-term keeper leagues will want to roster him immediately. He could very well emerge as a must-start in all fantasy formats if he gets off to a good start, as he has a ton of upside and plenty of strikeout potential.

Cleveland Indians SP Carlos Carrasco is competing with Ps Trevor Bauer, Aaron Harang and Josh Tomlin for the fifth spot in the rotation. SP Shaun Marcum (shoulder) also might join the battle when healthy. General manager Chris Antonetti said Carrasco is already on the club, whether it's in the bullpen or in the rotation, hoping that will relax the pitcher who is out of options. "He felt like he was pitching for his major league life," manager Terry Francona said of Carrasco before. "He knew there a chance he'd go to Triple-A." Carrasco has made some adjustments to his delivery to give him more deception.
Fantasy Tip: Carrasco has a live arm, and could be a boon to fantasy owners in the strikeouts department if he could win a job, pitch effectively and stay healthy. All of those things have been a problem in parts of five seasons in the majors to this point.

Cleveland Indians manager Terry Francona has noticed a drastic difference in SP Trevor Bauer's delivery this spring that has put him in a better position to throw strikes and stay healthy. "I think we're really excited. Again, he hasn't faced a hitter yet, but he looked like a different pitcher. That was nice to see," Francona said. Bauer will be competing with SPs Josh Tomlin and Carlos Carrasco for the last rotation spot in spring training.

Cleveland Indians SP Trevor Bauer has made mechanical adjustments this offseason that have impressed the coaching staff. "He's kind of getting back to his old delivery," pitching coach Mickey Callaway said. "It looks really good. It looked like his command is getting better and there's some more deception. I would say it's a more refined delivery. It's the same mechanics but a little more refined, and it looks a little more repeatable. It's a little less violent."
