Indians | Lonnie Chisenhall collects five hits

Fri, 01 Jul 2016 17:24:10 -0700

Cleveland Indians OF Lonnie Chisenhall went 5-for-8 in a 19-inning victory over the Toronto Blue Jays Friday, July 1. All of his hits were singles.

Fantasy Tip: Chisenhall raised his season average from .297 to .311 with Friday's performance. He is batting .455 (15-for-33) with three home runs and nine RBI over his last seven games and is a must-start option for daily fantasy lineups.

Indians | Josh Tomlin hurls quality start

Fri, 01 Jul 2016 17:22:15 -0700

Cleveland Indians SP Josh Tomlin allowed one run on seven hits over six innings in a no-decision against the Toronto Blue Jays Friday, July 1. He walked two and struck out eight.

Fantasy Tip: Since June 1, Tomlin has tossed six consecutive quality starts and has gone 2-0 with a 2.27 ERA. He's a solid pitcher to own in seasonal fantasy leagues, although his low strikeout totals may not make him the best option to use in DFS. Tomlin's next start will come against the Detroit Tigers Wednesday, July 6.

Indians | Trevor Bauer earns win in relief

Fri, 01 Jul 2016 17:03:08 -0700

Cleveland Indians SP Trevor Bauer (7-2) tossed five scoreless innings of relief in an emergency appearance during a 19-inning victory over the Toronto Blue Jays Friday, July 1. He allowed two hits and walked three batters while striking out three. Bauer was scheduled to face the Blue Jays Saturday, July 2, but is unlikely to make the start after throwing 81 pitches in Friday's game.

Fantasy Tip: In seven appearances (six starts) since June 1, Bauer has gone 4-0 with a 1.81 ERA, with 46 strikeouts over 49 2/3 innings. He should be started with confidence in all fantasy formats every time he takes the mound.

Indians | Jason Kipnis extends hitting streak

Thu, 30 Jun 2016 21:09:00 -0700

Cleveland Indians 2B Jason Kipnis extended his hitting streak to a season-high 12 games with a 2-for-3 night, including his 11th home run of the year, Thursday, June 30.

Fantasy Tip: Kipnis hit .286 with seven home runs and 29 RBI in the month of June and is now up to .271/.328/.452 on the season. With the Tribe rolling along with 13 straight wins, Kipnis has been a big contributor and is an excellent starting fantasy second baseman.

Indians | Carlos Carrasco strikes out 14 in win

Thu, 30 Jun 2016 19:01:52 -0700

Cleveland Indians SP Carlos Carrasco (4-2) struck out a season-high 14 batters in a victory over the Toronto Blue Jays Thursday, June 30. He allowed one run on three hits and two walks over 7 1/3 innings.

Fantasy Tip: Carrasco has thrown four consecutive quality starts and has posted a 0.55 ERA over his last two outings. He will make his next appearance versus the Detroit Tigers Tuesday, July 5, and should be viewed as a must-start option in all fantasy formats.

Indians | Michael Brantley in second-half plans

Thu, 30 Jun 2016 15:27:19 -0700

Cleveland Indians OF Michael Brantley (shoulder) is progressing well and throwing soft tosses, according to manager Terry Francona. Francona also said Brantley will have an impact for Cleveland in the second half of the season.

Fantasy Tip: At this point, fantasy owners will be happy to take whatever they can from Brantley, and he remains a must-stash outfielder in all seasonal leagues. There is five-category upside, but there is also still no firm timeline on when he'll rejoin Cleveland. Stay tuned for updates.

Indians | Lonnie Chisenhall, Yan Gomes resting

Thu, 30 Jun 2016 12:45:34 -0700

Cleveland Indians OF Lonnie Chisenhall and C Yan Gomes are not in the starting lineup Thursday, June 30. OF Tyler Naquin is starting in right field and is hitting seventh, while C Chris Gimenez is behind the plate and batting ninth against Toronto Blue Jays SP R.A. Dickey.

Fantasy Tip: Despite the off day, Chisenhall has heated up recently and should be drawing attention from those in deep mixed leagues. Naquin is providing a nice average (.331 in 124 at-bats) but doesn't move the needle much in the counting stats (six home runs, 16 RBI) and is more of a deep sleeper in DFS. Gimenez is a desperation low-end catching consideration.

Indians | Roberto Perez making progress

Wed, 29 Jun 2016 20:17:18 -0700

Cleveland Indians C Roberto Perez (thumb) is nearing a return to game action. Manager Terry Francona said Wednesday, June 29, that Perez might play as a designated hitter in a minor-league rehab game as soon as this weekend. Perez is recovering from surgery to repair a broken right thumb, and he has been sidelined since May 1.

Fantasy Tip: When healthy, Perez is only worth using as a No. 2 backstop in the deepest of AL-only fantasy leagues as he'll rarely play ahead of Yan Gomes.

Indians | Danny Salazar earns 10th victory

Wed, 29 Jun 2016 20:16:37 -0700

Cleveland Indians SP Danny Salazar allowed five hits with no walks and eight strikeouts over seven scoreless innings in a win Wednesday, June 29, against the Atlanta Braves. He threw 70 of his 98 pitches for strikes in the quality start as he earned his 10th win of the season.

Fantasy Tip: Salazar lowered his ERA to 2.22 with the impressive outing, helping the Indians to their 12th straight victory. His next scheduled start will be July 4 against the Detroit Tigers, and he will be a two-start pitcher in weekly fantasy formats.

Indians | Trevor Bauer in sync with Chris Gimenez

Wed, 29 Jun 2016 18:10:57 -0700

Cleveland Indians SP Trevor Bauer has posted a 2.76 ERA in 11 starts since the club acquired C Chris Gimenez from the Texas Rangers May 4, and began using the battery together regularly. Gimenez feels that Bauer's recent success is due to him focusing on his strengths rather than trying to turn the 25-year-old right-hander into someone he's not. "People in the past have tried to make him a different pitcher than he really is," Gimenez said. "He's the type of guy who will throw all of his pitches, try to strike everyone out, which is fine. But he's a guy who lives at the top of the zone. People in the past have told him to throw fastballs down in the zone, breaking stuff down in the zone. Instead of making him a different pitcher, why not take what he does best and use his stuff at the top of the zone?"

Fantasy Tip: Bauer is 3-0 with a 2.01 ERA and 0.94 WHIP in six starts during the month of June, with 12 walks and 43 strikeouts over 44 2/3 innings. He should be started with confidence in all fantasy formats.

Indians | Carlos Santana out in NL park

Wed, 29 Jun 2016 12:47:21 -0700

Cleveland Indians 1B Carlos Santana is not in the starting lineup against the Atlanta Braves and SP Joel De La Cruz Wednesday, June 29, without the designated hitter in a National League park. 1B Mike Napoli is at first base and is hitting cleanup.

Fantasy Tip: Napoli doesn't hit for average and strikes out often, but he's been a great waiver wire find this year with 16 home runs and 52 RBI in his first year in Cleveland. Against a pitcher making his major league debut tonight, Napoli needs to be fired up in all fantasy lineups.

Indians | Danny Salazar has been rock solid

Wed, 29 Jun 2016 11:40:27 -0700

Cleveland Indians SP Danny Salazar is 5-0 with a 2.53 ERA and .189 opponent's average against in his last five starts with 32 strikeouts and 17 walks in 32 innings. He's limited opponents to a .158 average (9-for-57) with runners in scoring position over that time.

Fantasy Tip: What more could fantasy owners ask for? Not only has Salazar been lights out of late, but he's facing an extremely juicy matchup in the Atlanta Braves Wednesday, and he's a no-brainer start in all fantasy leagues tonight.

Indians | Danny Salazar limiting lefties

Wed, 29 Jun 2016 10:34:16 -0700

Cleveland Indians SP Danny Salazar has allowed left-handed hitters to bat .150 with one homer and a .233 slugging percentage in 133 at-bats against him this season.

Fantasy Tip: Salazar has a tasty matchup against the Atlanta Braves tonight, and he'll be a high-end starter to consider for DFS usage.

Indians | Danny Salazar looks to stay hot

Tue, 28 Jun 2016 20:03:37 -0700

Cleveland Indians SP Danny Salazar will start Wednesday, June 29, against the Atlanta Braves. He has the second-lowest ERA in the American League at 2.40 and will be opposed by SP Joel De La Cruz, who is making his major league debut.

Fantasy Tip: Salazar is a great fantasy option and DFS play across the board, and DFS players would also be wise to use a Cleveland stack of hitters in the ultra-favorable matchup as the Indians go for their 12th straight victory.

Indians | Corey Kluber picks up eighth win

Tue, 28 Jun 2016 20:03:14 -0700

Cleveland Indians SP Corey Kluber allowed two earned runs, three hits and a walk with seven strikeouts over eight inning in a win Tuesday, June 28, against the Atlanta Braves. He threw 64 of his 87 pitches for strikes in the quality start.

Fantasy Tip: Kluber had a rough April, but he has been improving each month since. After going 3-3 with a 4.08 ERA in six May starts he is 4-1 with a 2.19 ERA and 37 strikeouts in 37 innings in five outings in June. He has re-emerged as a fantasy-elite pitcher and DFS stud.
