Indians | Michael Brantley back in lienup

Sun, 24 May 2015 16:52:25 -0700

Cleveland Indians OF Michael Brantley (back) returned to the lineup Sunday, May 24, after a one-game absence and went 1-for-4 with a double and a walk in a 5-2 win over the Cincinnati Reds.

Fantasy Tip: Brantley ($5,800, 11.6% of cap) has been enjoying a solid year despite dealing with a nagging back issue, but he has tailed off a bit recently. He hasn't had a multi-hit game since May 15, and he has scored just one run over the eight-game stretch. Look elsewhere at FantasyScore until his bat catches fire.

Indians | Yan Gomes hitless in return

Sun, 24 May 2015 16:46:09 -0700

Cleveland Indians C Yan Gomes (knee) went 0-for-4 with a run scored in a 5-2 win against the Cincinnati Reds in his first start since being activated from the disabled list Sunday, May 24.

Fantasy Tip: Gomes ($4,600, 9.2% of cap) had not played since April 11, and some rust is to be expected. Avoid Gomes at FantasyScore until his timing comes back.

Indians | Mike Aviles in lineup

Sun, 24 May 2015 08:17:46 -0700

Cleveland Indians SS Mike Aviles will start at shortstop and bat ninth in the order Sunday, May 24, against the Cincinnati Reds. SS Jose Ramirez will go to the bench.

Fantasy Tip: Aviles ($2,600, 5.2% of cap) is 6-for-his-last-11 and in the midst of a hot streak. While Aviles' price remains low, FantasyScore owners should be putting him into their lineups.

Indians | Michael Bourn gets Sunday off

Sun, 24 May 2015 08:12:15 -0700

Cleveland Indians OF Michael Bourn isn't in the starting lineup Sunday, May 24, against the Cincinnati Reds. As a result, OF David Murphy will start in left field and bat fifth in the order.

Fantasy Tip: Murphy ($1,900, 3.8% of cap) will have a lefty on righty matchup against RHP Raisel Iglesias of the Reds. Murphy has hit .325 off righties so far this year, with four doubles and three home runs. Murphy is a strong cost-saving play on FantasyScore while batting in the heart of the lineup.

Indians | Corey Kluber keeps rolling

Sat, 23 May 2015 17:19:51 -0700

Cleveland Indians SP Corey Kluber allowed one run on nine hits while striking out seven over eight innings in a win over the Cincinnati Reds Saturday, May 23, and he has allowed one run or less in three straight starts.

Fantasy Tip: Kluber ($8,000, 16.0% of cap) has allowed two runs in 25.0 innings over his last three starts while piling up 37 strikeouts compared to just one walk. He has put a rough opening month to the year behind him, and the defending Cy Young winner is a must-start option at FantasyScore right now.

Indians | Carlos Santana snaps slump

Fri, 22 May 2015 20:11:27 -0700

Cleveland Indians 1B Carlos Santana had an RBI double in the seventh inning against the Cincinnati Reds Friday, May 22, snapping a 0-for-25 slump.

Fantasy Tip: Santana ($5,000, 10.0% of cap) is hitting just .212 on the year, and while he has plenty of power upside, the risk probably isn't worth the potential reward at FantasyScore at his current price tag.

Indians | Nick Swisher sitting out

Fri, 22 May 2015 12:07:10 -0700

Cleveland Indians 1B Nick Swisher is not in the starting lineup Friday, May 22. OF Michael Brantley is serving as the designated hitter against Cincinnati Reds SP Mike Leake, and OF David Murphy is starting in left field and hitting fifth in the batting order.

Fantasy Tip: Brantley ($5,800, 11.6% of cap) should be a daily consideration for FantasyScore lineups. Murphy ($1,900, 3.8% of cap) is a fine value pick against right-handers, as he's hitting .316 (24-for-76) with three home runs and eight RBI against them in 2015. Leake also allows a .786 slugging percentage to lefty sticks this year.

Indians | T.J. House activated

Fri, 22 May 2015 05:43:11 -0700

Cleveland Indians SP T.J. House (shoulder) was activated from the 15-day disabled list Thursday, May 21.

Fantasy Tip: House ($3,500, 7.0% of cap) was pounded in for 19 earned runs in 13.0 innings before his DL stint, which could be blamed on the shoulder injury. He may be in line for the start Monday, May 25, or Tuesday, May 26 against the Texas Rangers, with the Indians having unnamed starters for both days, according to their official team site. House isn't worth starting in any fantasy format until he shows that the injury is behind him and was the cause of his struggles.

Indians | Yan Gomes to return Sunday

Thu, 21 May 2015 15:34:29 -0700

Cleveland Indians C Yan Gomes (knee) will return to catch against the Cincinnati Reds Sunday, May 24, according to manager Terry Francona.

Fantasy Tip: Gomes ($4,600, 9.2% of cap) hasn't played since April 11 because of a serious knee injury, but he's returning a little earlier than expected for the Tribe. You should be very cautious in returning him to your FantasyScore lineups before seeing how he responds at the plate. The Indians could ease him back in, too.

Indians | Mike Aviles in platoon at third?

Thu, 21 May 2015 14:27:36 -0700

Cleveland Indians 3B Mike Aviles is starting at third base and batting sixth against the Chicago White Sox Thursday, May 21. It is the third consecutive game Aviles has started at third base, and all three games were against a left-handed pitcher.

Fantasy Tip: Aviles ($2,300, 4.6% of cap) appears to have a firm grasp on the starting gig at the hot corner when facing a southpaw. His upside is marginal for daily contests, though, and in seasonal formats, he is only an option in cavernous mixed and AL-only leagues. Lonnie Chisenhall's ($2,500, 5.0% of cap) value takes a hit, and he is no longer viable outside deep mixed and AL-only formats, if the platoon sticks.

Indians | Carlos Santana back in the lineup

Thu, 21 May 2015 14:16:48 -0700

Cleveland Indians 1B Carlos Santana (back) is starting at first base and batting second against the Chicago White Sox Thursday, May 21.

Fantasy Tip: Santana ($5,000, 10.0% of cap) missed four games due to back spasms, and he is also struggling through his second consecutive early-season slump. FantasyScore players should take a wait-and-see approach before spending up for Santana. In seasonal formats, though, trying to sneak under the buy-low window before it slams shut is advised.

Indians | Shaun Marcum solid in debut

Thu, 21 May 2015 00:37:40 -0700

Cleveland Indians SP Shaun Marcum won his first start in almost two years on Wednesday, May 20, against the Chicago White Sox. He struck out six in 6 2/3 innings as the Indians won 4-3.

Fantasy Tip: Marcum looked solid while pitching his first start in nearly two years. He did have one brief appearance in relief earlier in the year. Allow a couple more starts before you decide whether or not Marcum can help your pitching roster.

Indians | Carlos Santana expected back Thursday

Wed, 20 May 2015 15:38:44 -0700

Updating a previous report, Carlos Santana (back) is expected to return to the starting lineup against the Chicago White Sox Thursday, May 21, according to manager Terry Francona.

Fantasy Tip: Santana ($5,000, 10.0% of cap) has missed four games due to back spasms. Hopefully, the rest will help kick-start his season, as Santana has been a bit of a disappointment to date. Don't forget, though, he was even worse to this point last season. Expect a hot streak sooner than later.

Indians | Lonnie Chisenhall sitting again vs. Lefty

Wed, 20 May 2015 15:16:24 -0700

Cleveland Indians 3B Lonnie Chisenhall is not in the starting lineup against the Chicago White Sox Wednesday, May 20. SS Mike Aviles is starting at third base and hitting sixth.

Fantasy Tip: Chisenhall ($2,500, 5.0% of cap) is struggling this season and currently sports a .226/.263/.371 slash line. Sitting in back-to-back games against southpaws suggests Mike Aviles ($2,300, 4.6% of cap) has earned starts at third base against left-handed pitchers. It is a blow to Chisenhall's seasonal value, but he shouldn't be owned in the majority of leagues considering his poor production. Aviles is nothing more than a low-priced flier in FantasyScore contests Wednesday.

Indians | Mike Aviles starting at the hot corner

Wed, 20 May 2015 15:09:57 -0700

Cleveland Indians SS Mike Aviles is starting at third base and batting sixth against the Chicago White Sox Wednesday, May 20.

Fantasy Tip: It appears Aviles ($2,600, 5.2% of cap) might have earned a platoon share at third base against left-hand pitchers. He should be viewed as nothing more than a low-priced flier for FantasyScore contests, though. In seasonal formats, Lonnie Chisenhall ($2,500, 5.0% of cap) takes a hit with the playing time loss.
