Indians | Michael Brantley, Juan Uribe out

Sun, 01 May 2016 11:06:31 -0700

Cleveland Indians OF Michael Brantley and 3B Juan Uribe are not in the starting lineup against Philadelphia Phillies SP Vincent Velasquez Sunday, May 1. SS Jose Ramirez will start at third base and is batting first in the lineup. OF Rajai Davis will start in left field and is batting seventh.

Fantasy Tip: Ramirez is recorded seven hits in his last 15 at-bats and should be a fine starting option in daily fantasy leagues. Davis is hitting a solid .274 with two home runs and nine RBI this season and could be used in some leagues.

Indians | Mike Napoli not in the lineup

Sun, 01 May 2016 10:57:22 -0700

Cleveland Indians 1B Mike Napoli (neck) is not in the starting lineup against Philadelphia Phillies SP Vincent Velasquez Sunday, May 1. 1B Carlos Santana will start at first base and is batting fourth in the lineup.

Fantasy Tip: Santana is hitting .300 with two doubles and one RBI over the last seven days. Santana could be a starting option in some mixed leagues, but owners in daily fantasy leagues probably can find better starting candidates.

Indians | Lonnie Chisenhall has three hits

Sat, 30 Apr 2016 23:36:55 -0700

Cleveland Indians OF Lonnie Chisenhall had three hits Saturday, April 30, in a 4-3 loss to the Philadelphia Phillies.

Fantasy Tip: Chisenhall scored twice and lifted his batting average to .227. He is showing signs of life following much of the first month spent on the disabled list, but Chisenhall is streaky and is the type of player better suited for daily leagues.

Indians | Jason Kipnis streaking

Fri, 29 Apr 2016 21:49:27 -0700

Cleveland Indians 2B Jason Kipnis extended his hitting streak to eight games, going 1-for-4 with a two-run home run and a walk in a 4-3 loss to the Philadelphia Phillies Friday, April 29.

Fantasy Tip: Kipnis has two home runs, five RBI and five runs scored during the streak, and while he isn't the 20-20 threat he used to be, he is still a starting-caliber second baseman in all formats.

Indians | Rajai Davis leading off vs. Phillies

Fri, 29 Apr 2016 12:59:13 -0700

Cleveland Indians OF Rajai Davis is starting in center field and batting first against Philadelphia Phillies SP Adam Morgan Friday, April 29. OF Tyler Naquin is not in the starting lineup Friday.

Fantasy Tip: Davis has a career .294/.348/.444 slash line against southpaws and is off to a strong start this season with a .286/.333/.482 line. He is a strong option in all fantasy formats Friday. However, his year-long value is decreasing with Michael Brantley back in the fold. Davis will likely see the smaller side of a timeshare with Naquin. Naquin has been strong to start the season, too, as he has gone 13-for-39 with seven runs and a .350 on-base percentage.

Indians | Lonnie Chisenhall has strained neck

Wed, 27 Apr 2016 14:54:30 -0700

Cleveland Indians OF Lonnie Chisenhall (neck) is dealing with a strained neck after diving in the outfield Tuesday, April 26. However, he's expected to be OK after the Indians' off day Thursday, April 28.

Fantasy Tip: Chisenhall could be back in the lineup Friday against Phillies starter Adam Morgan. Check back to make sure he's in there, but Chisenhall could be a nice low-priced sleeper pick against a very hittable pitcher in a hitter's haven Friday night.

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 | Cody Anderson optioned to the minors

Wed, 27 Apr 2016 13:12:30 -0700

Cleveland Indians SP Cody Anderson was optioned to Class AAA Columbus Wednesday, April 27. In a corresponding move, RP Kyle Crockett was recalled.

Fantasy Tip: The Indians won't require a fifth starter until Saturday, May 7, so there is potential for Anderson to be recalled to start then. However, he has some work to do before fantasy owners can trust him again. Anderson allowed 20 runs through just 20 innings over his four 2016 starts. Take a wait-and-see approach with him for now.

Indians | Cody Anderson knocked around

Tue, 26 Apr 2016 22:45:06 -0700

Cleveland Indians SP Cody Anderson allowed five earned runs, 10 hits and a walk over 5 2/3 innings in a no-decision Tuesday, April 26, against the Minnesota Twins.

Fantasy Tip: Anderson was a sensation down the stretch last season, but he isn't fooling anyone this year. Avoid him in all but the deepest of AL-only fantasy formats until he gets untracked.

Indians | Dr. Smooth hitless in first start

Tue, 26 Apr 2016 22:44:39 -0700

Cleveland Indians OF Michael Brantley (shoulder) went hitless in four at-bats with a strikeout in his first start of the season Tuesday, April 26, against the Minnesota Twins.

Fantasy Tip: You can expect a little bit of rust from Brantley, as he slowly works his way back into regular playing time. Fantasy owners should be patient, as it might take him a while before he gets up to speed.

Indians | Lonnie Chisenhall leaves game

Tue, 26 Apr 2016 21:36:47 -0700

Cleveland Indians OF Lonnie Chisenhall (neck) left the game Tuesday, April 26, against the Minnesota Twins with a mild neck strain. He is considered day to day.

Fantasy Tip: Fantasy owners in AL-only leagues which allow daily moves, and DFS players, will want to avoid him until he can officially return and prove his health in a full game without any setbacks.

Indians | Carlos Santana back in leadoff spot

Tue, 26 Apr 2016 14:01:07 -0700

Cleveland Indians 1B Carlos Santana is hitting leadoff again against Minnesota Twins SP Ricky Nolasco Tuesday, April 26. OF Rajai Davis is not playing, while OF Tyler Naquin is starting in center field and batting ninth.

Fantasy Tip: Santana's leadoff positioning is likely the result of Davis being out of the lineup tonight. Regardless, it's notable, especially in daily contests. Santana homered in his first at-bat out of the leadoff spot Friday and had four hits in 14 at-bats at leadoff over the weekend. Santana is a nice option for all formats tonight. Naquin has played little this year and is a low-end outfield option.

Indians | Michael Brantley to start Tuesday

Mon, 25 Apr 2016 23:29:39 -0700

Cleveland Indians OF Michael Brantley will start Tuesday, April 26, and the following day before the team has an off day Thursday, April 28. The plan would be to play the next two days before evaluating him on Sunday, May 1.

Fantasy Tip: If you own Brantley, he should be in your lineups. Hold off on him in DFS until he proves his stroke isn't rusty.

Indians | Trevor Bauer joining the rotation

Mon, 25 Apr 2016 15:45:56 -0700

Cleveland Indians SP Trevor Bauer will take the rotation spot of injured SP Carlos Carrasco (hamstring), manager Terry Francona announced Monday, April 25. When Bauer will make his first start has not been determined yet, though.

Fantasy Tip: Bauer has a 4.50 ERA, a 1.39 WHIP and a 8.6 K/9 through 373 2/3 innings over his five-year career, which makes him a low-end own in all fantasy formats. He has flashed exceptional potential, though, especially in the strikeout department. It is best to look to Bauer in favorable matchups as a streamer in seasonal leagues and value play in daily contests.

Indians | Michael Brantley not in lineup

Mon, 25 Apr 2016 15:01:00 -0700

Cleveland Indians OF Michael Brantley (shoulder) is not in the lineup Monday, April 25, versus Minnesota Twins SP Tommy Milone.

Fantasy Tip: It's possible the reason Cleveland is still holding him out is to not trot him out there against a left-handed pitcher in his first game back. Nonetheless, Brantley will carry standout potential as soon as he is unleashed, as don't forget this is someone capable of being an MVP candidate when playing at the top of his game. Owners in weekly leagues should fire him up right away despite the fact he'll be missing tonight's festivities.
