Indians | Trevor Bauer has hit a wall

Wed, 02 Sep 2015 22:53:37 -0700

Cleveland Indians SP Trevor Bauer allowed five runs and six hits while recording just four outs Wednesday, Sept. 2, against the Toronto Blue Jays. He failed to make it through two innings for the second time in four starts.

Fantasy Tip: Bauer ($5,200, 10.4% of cap) had been a solid FantasyScore option due to his K/9 (strikeouts to nine innings) ratio earlier in the season, but he has been extremely shaky lately so avoid him.

Indians | Chris Johnson draws into the lineup

Wed, 02 Sep 2015 13:39:08 -0700

Cleveland Indians 3B Chris Johnson is starting at third base and batting seventh against Toronto Blue Jays SP R.A. Dickey Wednesday, Sept. 2. 3B Giovanny Urshela is not in the starting lineup Wednesday.

Fantasy Tip: Urshela ($3,000, 6.0% of cap) is hitting just .223 this season, so he could lose a few at-bats down the stretch to Johnson ($3,600, 7.2% of cap). Johnson made a pinch-hit appearance Tuesday, Sept. 1, but this will be his first start since returning from the disabled list. It isn't a plus-matchup, either, so he likely should be avoided at FantasyScore Wednesday.

Indians | Chris Johnson activated

Tue, 01 Sep 2015 09:55:28 -0700

Cleveland Indians 3B Chris Johnson (hand) was activated from the 15-day disabled list Tuesday, Sept. 1.

Fantasy Tip: Johnson ($3,600, 7.2% of cap) could work his way back into a regular role for the Tribe in the final month of the season after he went 9-for-21 (.429) after being traded from Atlanta. He's worth a look in deep mixed leagues if he's still available and you need corner infield help.

Indians | Danny Salazar cools down Toronto

Mon, 31 Aug 2015 22:50:32 -0700

Cleveland Indians SP Danny Salazar (illness) allowed two run and six hits over seven innings while striking out 10 batters in a win against the Toronto Blue Jays Monday, Aug. 31. He reached double digits in strikeouts for the fifth time this season, but first time since June 6.

Fantasy Tip: Salazar ($8,100, 16.2% of cap) is a must-start FantasyScore option due to his high K/9 (strikeouts to nine innings) ratio.

Indians | Ryan Raburn in the lineup

Mon, 31 Aug 2015 14:09:20 -0700

Cleveland Indians OF Ryan Raburn will serve as the designated hitter against Toronto Blue Jays SP David Price Monday, Aug. 31, and is batting fifth in the lineup.

Fantasy Tip: Raburn ($3,200, 6.4% of cap) sees a lot of playing time against left-handed pitchers because he has posted a .310 average against them this season. Raburn is facing a tough pitcher Monday and may not be the best option.

Indians | Giovanny Urshela will not start

Mon, 31 Aug 2015 14:03:16 -0700

Cleveland Indians 3B Giovanny Urshela is not in the starting lineup against Toronto Blue Jays SP David Price Monday, Aug. 31. SS Mike Aviles will start at third base and is batting ninth in the lineup.

Fantasy Tip: Urshela ($3,000, 6.0% of cap) likely will return to the lineup in the near future. Aviles ($3,100, 6.2% of cap) has six hits in his last 10 games and is not the best option for owners on FantasyScore.

Indians | Lonnie Chisenhall out of the lineup

Mon, 31 Aug 2015 13:49:14 -0700

Cleveland Indians 3B Lonnie Chisenhall is not in the starting lineup against Toronto Blue Jays SP David Price Monday, Aug. 31. OF Jerry Sands will start in right field and is batting seventh in the lineup.

Fantasy Tip: Chisenhall ($4,200, 8.4% of cap) is sitting because the team is facing a left-handed pitcher. Sands ($1,800, 3.6% of cap) has only two hits in his last nine games and should not be a starting option.

Indians | Michael Brantley keeps hitting

Sun, 30 Aug 2015 17:34:13 -0700

Cleveland Indians OF Michael Brantley went 2-for-3 with a double, and RBI, three runs scored and a walk in a 9-2 win over the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim Sunday, Aug. 30.

Fantasy Tip: Brantley ($5,300, 10.6% of cap) is hitting .424 with 17 RBI and 19 runs scored in August, and he is one of the safer options at FantasyScore thanks to his steady bat.

Indians | Gavin Floyd close to returning

Sun, 30 Aug 2015 13:04:33 -0700

Cleveland Indians SP Gavin Floyd (elbow) will be activated from the disabled list Tuesday, Sept. 1, but he will be used out of the bullpen, according to manager Terry Francona.

Fantasy Tip: Floyd has not pitched at the major league level this season and as long as he is being used out of the bullpen, he has no value in FantasyScore.

Indians | Yan Gomes draws out of the lineup

Sun, 30 Aug 2015 08:15:24 -0700

Cleveland Indians C Yan Gomes is not in the starting lineup Sunday, Aug. 30. C Roberto Perez is starting behind the plate and batting eighth against Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim SP Jered Weaver Sunday.

Fantasy Tip: While Gomes ($4,100, 8.2% of cap) has hit four home runs and drove in 18 runs in August, they've come with a .207/.280/.390 slash line. The backstop has been feast or famine of late and an overall disappointment for the season. Perez ($2,100, 4.2% of cap) is nothing more than a desperation source of cap relief at FantasyScore Sunday.

Indians | Yan Gomes has grand slam

Sun, 30 Aug 2015 00:18:55 -0700

Cleveland Indians C Yan Gomes had a grand slam and drove in a career-high five runs Saturday, Aug. 29, as the Indians broke open the game and beat the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim 8-3.

Fantasy Tip: Gomes ($4,100, 8.2% of cap) has had a .111 average in the past week and a .203 mark for August, so a game like this should help Gomes snap out of it a bit. Use Gomes in FantasyScore primarily against the right, as he has seven home runs out of nine against righties.

Indians | Jason Kipnis serving as DH

Sat, 29 Aug 2015 12:24:29 -0700

Cleveland Indians 2B Jason Kipnis will bat leadoff and serve as the designated hitter against Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim SP Garrett Richards Saturday, Aug. 29. INF Jose Ramirez will play second base and bat ninth.

Fantasy Tip: Over the past week, Kipnis ($4,600, 9.2% of cap) is 7-for-21 with a home run and six RBIs. Ramirez ($2,900, 5.8% of cap) is only batting .200 through 70 games this season and is not a viable FantasyScore option.

Indians | Abraham Almonte playing center field

Sat, 29 Aug 2015 11:40:41 -0700

Cleveland Indians OF Abraham Almonte is batting seventh and playing center field against Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim SP Garrett Richards Saturday, Aug. 29.

Fantasy Tip: Almonte ($3,100, 6.2% of cap) is 5-for-15 over the past week and is hitting .273 with two homers and 10 RBIs since the All-Star break. He's worthy of consideration as a FantasyScore value play tonight.

Sat, 29 Aug 2015 11:38:04 -0700
