Indians | Carlos Santana successful at plate when at 1B

Tue, 29 Jul 2014 18:05:07 -0700

Cleveland Indians 1B/3B Carlos Santana has had varying success at the plate depending upon where he is playing on defense. He is hitting .338 with 15 of his 20 home runs when playing first base this season (43 games). When he has played third base, he has hit just .129 in 26 games, and he is 3-for-34 (.088) in 11 games as the catcher. The last time he has appeared anywhere other than first base was May 25.

Fantasy Tip: Daily fantasy owners need to keep all of the information in their memory bank, should the team elect to use him anywhere other than first base. He has been great there, while next to useless at the plate when focusing (or worrying) about his defense at third or behind the plate. It's an interesting statistic seeing how his position affects his hitting, really.

Indians | Michael Bourn to increase workload

Tue, 29 Jul 2014 18:04:37 -0700

Cleveland Indians OF Michael Bourn (hamstring) has no set timetable for his return from the 15-day disabled list, although he is expected to increase his rehab workload over the coming week. "I've kind of on purpose not gone in to push him," manager Terry Francona said Tuesday, July 29. "He's going to obviously add intensity as he continues to feel better. He will just continue to ramp up. And when he's ready to play, we'll send him out to play."

Fantasy Tip: It has been a lost season for Bourn, who cannot seem to stay healthy. Fantasy owners need to keep being patient and wait for him to officially come off the DL and play one or two full games without any setbacks before plugging him back into the active lineup.

Indians | Danny Salazar with a fine outing

Mon, 28 Jul 2014 10:25:10 -0700

Cleveland Indians SP Danny Salazar said he felt great in his start against the Kansas City Royals Sunday, July 22, in which he went seven innings. Salazar showed good velocity in the outing and made some adjustments early that helped him stick around in the game longer. The seven innings matched his longest start of the year, and it was the first time he didn't walk anyone.

Fantasy Tip: Salazar was everyone's sweetheart during draft season, but he quickly flamed out due to his inefficiency on the mound. Now that he appears to have worked out the kinks in the minors, he could be an excellent source of K's down the stretch in AL-only and deep mixed leagues.

Indians | Justin Masterson pounded in rehab

Fri, 25 Jul 2014 20:32:48 -0700

Cleveland Indians SP Justin Masterson (knee) allowed five runs, four hits and six walks over 6 2/3 innings in a minor-league rehab outing for Triple-A Columbus Friday, July 25.

Fantasy Tip: The stat line isn't as bad as it looks, as he hit left with the bases loaded and all three runs came in to score. The command issues are what is really striking about the line, as six walks simply will not do. Fantasy owners will want to keep him reserved for his first couple of starts when he returns to the big club, letting him prove his health and show his command is back.

Indians | Zach McAllister could start Saturday

Fri, 25 Jul 2014 11:24:54 -0700

Cleveland Indians SP Zach McAllister is expected to be activated and start Saturday, July 26, against the Kansas City Royals.

Fantasy Tip: It's a matchup AL-only players could try out, but mixed leaguers shouldn't go near him yet.

Indians | Michael Bourn doesn't have a timetable

Fri, 25 Jul 2014 08:40:13 -0700

Cleveland Indians OF Michael Bourn (hamstring) has no definitive timetable in his recovery from his strained left hamstring. He played catch in the outfield Thursday, July 24.

Fantasy Tip: This could last at least another week. And for someone whose value is typically driven by stolen bases, the time it'll probably take for him to get back into shape doesn't bode well for his late-season contributions.
