Indians | Giovanny Urshela sitting

Wed, 26 Aug 2015 11:49:35 -0700

Cleveland Indians 3B Giovanny Urshela is not in the starting lineup Wednesday, Aug. 26. SS Jose Ramirez is starting at the hot corner and hitting ninth against Milwaukee Brewers SP Jimmy Nelson.

Fantasy Tip: Nelson has been quite good in the second half for the Brewers, and Ramirez ($2,900, 5.8% of cap) doesn't have much to show at the plate this season, with a .204 average (47-for-230) with only two home runs and 16 RBI. Look elsewhere on FantasyScore.

Indians | Giovanny Urshela not in the lineup

Sat, 22 Aug 2015 08:10:54 -0700

Cleveland Indians 3B Giovanny Urshela is not in the starting lineup against New York Yankees SP Luis Severino Saturday, Aug. 22. SS Jose Ramirez will start at third base and is batting eighth in the lineup.

Fantasy Tip: Urshela ($3,000, 6.0% of cap) should return to the lineup in the near future. Ramirez ($2,900, 5.8% of cap) has seen time at different positions this season and has six hits in the last four games. Owners could consider using Ramirez in their lineups, but he is hitting only .211 on the season.

Indians | Jose Ramirez starting in LF

Wed, 19 Aug 2015 14:44:52 -0700

Cleveland Indians SS Jose Ramirez is starting in left field and batting ninth against Boston Red Sox SP Joe Kelly Wednesday, Aug. 19.

Fantasy Tip: With Jason Kipnis back from the DL, Ramirez ($2,900, 5.8% of cap) must find other avenues to playing time, and this is one of them. However, he'll likely be in and out of the lineup in some capacity, and he already didn't have much fantasy value. He's a weak play on FantasyScore tonight.

Cleveland Indians 2B Jose Ramirez went 1-for-4 with a strikeout Tuesday, Aug. 18, against the Boston Red Sox.

Indians | Jose Ramirez to start at 2B

Tue, 04 Aug 2015 11:10:43 -0700

Cleveland Indians SS Jose Ramirez will see the majority of time at second base with 2B Jason Kipnis (shoulder) on the disabled list, according to manager Terry Francona. Ramirez hit leadoff and played second base Monday, Aug. 3. The leadoff spot could be in flux without Kipnis there, though. SS Francisco Lindor and OF Michael Bourn are other options.

Fantasy Tip: Hitting leadoff increase daily fantasy value, but Ramirez ($2,100, 4.2% of cap) is still probably nothing more than a sleeper pick on FantasyScore and a salary cap relief. Bourn ($2,800, 5.6% of cap) has been hitting well since the All-Star break and would be much more intriguing as a sleeper if he's hitting atop the lineup.

Indians | Jose Ramirez starting at second

Mon, 03 Aug 2015 15:53:24 -0700

Cleveland Indians 2B Jose Ramirez is starting at second base and batting from the leadoff position Monday, Aug. 3, against the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim and RHP Garrett Richards.

Fantasy Tip: Ramirez ($2,100, 4.2% of cap) hit just .176 over 173 plate appearances with the Indians earlier this season, but he hit .288 following his demotion to Class AAA. Ramirez's on-base percentage was .351 in the minors this season, but FantasyScore owners should give him some time to readjust to the major leagues.

Indians | Jason Kipnis placed on disabled list

Mon, 03 Aug 2015 15:32:30 -0700

Cleveland Indians 2B Jason Kipnis (shoulder) was placed on the disabled list with a sore right shoulder Monday, Aug. 3. In a corresponding move, SS Jose Ramirez was recalled from Class AAA Columbus.

Fantasy Tip: Make sure to stash Kipnis ($5,400, 10.8% of cap) in all fantasy formats and check back for updates on his recovery and for a return timeline. Mike Aviles ($3,200, 6.4% of cap) and Ramirez ($2,100, 4.2% of cap) project to see the majority of starts at second base while Kipnis is out. Neither has anything more than fleeting seasonal value in cavernous mixed and AL-only formats, though.

Indians | Mike Aviles reinstated

Thu, 16 Jul 2015 10:33:29 -0700

Cleveland Indians SS Mike Aviles was reinstated from the family medical emergency list Thursday, July 16, and 2B Jose Ramirez was optioned to Class AAA Columbus in a corresponding move.

Fantasy Tip: Aviles ($3,200, 6.4% of cap) will likely continue to serve as a utility player for the Tribe that can play shortstop, third base and left field when needed. He's mainly a fantasy option in deeper mixed leagues and AL-only formats as roster depth, and he's typically a low-end FantasyScore option when he starts.

Indians | Brandon Moss sitting vs. Oakland

Sun, 12 Jul 2015 07:17:04 -0700

Cleveland Indians OF Brandon Moss is not in the starting lineup Sunday, July 12. SS Jose Ramirez draws into the lineup and is playing second base and batting ninth against Oakland Athletics SP Sonny Gray Sunday. 2B Jason Kipnis is serving as the designated hitter and leading off.

Fantasy Tip: Make sure to avoid Moss ($4,300, 8.6% of cap) in all fantasy formats Sunday. He enters the All-Star break with solid power totals (14 home runs and 46 RBI) but lackluster ratios (.221/.297/.429 slash line). Ramirez is nothing more than a dice roll Sunday, and FantasyScore players should likely look elsewhere.

Indians | Jose Ramirez recalled

Sat, 11 Jul 2015 15:15:47 -0700

Cleveland Indians 2B Jose Ramirez was recalled from Class AAA Columbus on Saturday, July 11. In a corresponding move, SS Mike Aviles was placed on the MLB family medical emergency leave list.

Fantasy Tip: With Francisco Lindor ($4,100, 8.2% of cap) doing well, Ramirez is likely up for depth and carries little fantasy value.
