Indians | Cleveland interested in Shane Victorino

Mon, 07 Dec 2015 12:58:23 -0800

Fantasy Tip: Victorino has only played 223 games over the past three seasons, and he has been a major fantasy disappointment the past two years.

Indians | CLE interested in Shane Victorino

Sat, 28 Nov 2015 10:07:15 -0800

The Cleveland Indians have expressed interest in free-agent OF Shane Victorino (Angels).

Fantasy Tip: The 35-year-old Victorino is capable of playing all three outfield positions and has resumed switch hitting but he isn't much more than a late-round flier in single-league fantasy formats due to his recent injury history. He hit .230 with one home run and seven RBIs in 178 at-bats with the Red Sox and Angels in 2015.

MLB | Shane Victorino to resume switch hitting

Sun, 08 Nov 2015 11:15:31 -0800

Free-agent OF Shane Victorino (Angels) is finally healthy and expects to return to switch hitting with his new team, according to agent John Boggs.

Fantasy Tip: Victorino batted exclusively right-handed during the 2015 season because he experienced soreness whenever he hit from the left side in spring training. He hit just .230 with one home run, seven RBIs and seven steals in 178 at-bats this year and isn't worth much more than a late-round flier in single-league fantasy formats.
