From -- thru  --


Indians | Rajai Davis, Lonnie Chisenhall sitting

Tue, 03 May 2016 11:26:49 -0700

Cleveland Indians OFs Rajai Davis and Lonnie Chisenhall are not in the starting lineup Tuesday, May 3. OF Marlon Byrd is in right field and hitting seventh, while OF Tyler Naquin is starting in center field and batting ninth against Detroit Tigers SP Justin Verlander.

Fantasy Tip: Neither Byrd nor Naquin are outstanding picks for daily rosters, but Byrd does have six hits in 13 at-bats against Verlander with a home run. Naquin has handled his own in 48 at-bats (.333 average). Both should be considered midrange outfield options as sleepers.

Indians | Three Tribe regulars sitting out

Wed, 27 Apr 2016 14:42:12 -0700

Cleveland Indians 3B Juan Uribe and OFs Lonnie Chisenhall and Rajai Davis are not in the starting lineup Wednesday, April 27. 3B Jose Ramirez is at the hot corner and is batting seventh, OF Marlon Byrd is starting in right field and is hitting eighth, while OF Tyler Naquin sees the start in center field and is batting ninth against Minnesota Twins SP Jose Berrios.

Fantasy Tip: The Tribe is facing a top pitching prospect making his major league debut in Berrios, so their is plenty of risk and reward for all three players in daily formats. However, with all three near the bottom of the lineup, they're more of desperation deep sleeper picks.

Indians | Yan Gomes, Lonnie Chisenhall out

Sun, 24 Apr 2016 08:31:48 -0700

Cleveland Indians C Yan Gomes and OF Lonnie Chisenhall are not in the starting lineup against Detroit Tigers SP Shane Greene Sunday, April 24. OF Marlon Byrd will play right field and bat sixth, while C Roberto Perez starts behind the plate and bats ninth.

Fantasy Tip: Gomes had five RBI Saturday but is receiving the day off because the club is playing a day game following a night game, while Chisenhall has collected just two hits in his first 16 at-bats since coming off the disabled list. Byrd has two home runs and five RBI in 36 at-bats this year and is worth considering as a value play for daily fantasy contests, while Perez should strictly be viewed as a source of salary cap relief.

Indians | Mike Napoli out Thursday

Thu, 21 Apr 2016 07:42:17 -0700

Cleveland Indians 1B Mike Napoli is out of the lineup Thursday, April 21, with OF Marlon Byrd hitting fifth.

Fantasy Tip: Byrd is 6-for-14 (.429) with a homer the last seven days. He's a decent low-end flyer in DFS against Nathan Karns.

Cleveland Indians OF Lonnie Chisenhall is hitting seventh Wednesday, April 20, fresh off the disabled list. OF Jose Ramirez is leading off, and OF Marlon Byrd and OF Rajai Davis are sitting out.

Fantasy Tip: Ramirez is hitting .300 and could be worth a low-end flyer against Taijuan Walker. Give Chisenhall a game or two to get his feet wet before considering him in DFS.

Indians | Jose Ramirez playing left field Saturday

Sat, 16 Apr 2016 10:40:39 -0700

Cleveland Indians INF/OF Jose Ramirez will bat seventh and start in left field against New York Mets SP Saturday, April 16. OF Marlon Byrd is receiving the day off.

Fantasy Tip: Ramirez is 8-for-24 with a home run and two RBI through six games and has seen most of his playing time in the outfield this year due to the emergence of Francisco Lindor at shortstop. View him as an inexpensive flier option in daily fantasy contests.

Indians | Marlon Byrd returns to lineup

Sun, 10 Apr 2016 09:38:09 -0700

Cleveland Indians OF Marlon Byrd is batting sixth and starting in left field versus Chicago White Sox SP Jose Quintana Sunday, April 10.

Fantasy Tip: The 38-year-old Byrd is a lifetime .286 hitter versus left-handed pitching, although he has never faced Quintana in his career. He is 2-for-10 at the plate this season and should be viewed as an inexpensive flier option.

Indians | Lonnie Chisenhall to start on DL

Mon, 28 Mar 2016 09:55:48 -0700

Cleveland Indians OF Lonnie Chisenhall (wrist) will open the season on the disabled list with a left wrist issue, according to manager Terry Francona. OFs Marlon Byrd and Collin Cowgill have made the roster.

Fantasy Tip: With both Chisenhall and Michael Brantley starting on the sidelines, it opens up notable playing time for spring standout Tyler Naquin, Rajai Davis and Byrd and Cowgill. Naquin and Davis could split time in center field, with Byrd and Cowgill splitting time in right. Naquin might be the most intriguing in the short term in AL-only leagues right now.

Indians | Marlon Byrd to debut Sunday

Sat, 19 Mar 2016 18:49:39 -0700

Cleveland Indians OF Marlon Byrd will serve as the designated hitter in an exhibition game versus the Seattle Mariners Sunday, March 20, according to manager Terry Francona.

Fantasy Tip: Byrd is expected to see a great deal of playing time early in the regular season while OF Michael Brantley (shoulder) continues to recover from offseason shoulder surgery. However, he is likely to platoon in right field with Lonnie Chisenhall once Brantley returns to action. For now, view Byrd as an option for AL-only fantasy leagues.
