Indians | Carlos Carrasco to throw Monday

Mon, 30 May 2016 06:25:29 -0700

Cleveland Indians SP Carlos Carrasco (hamstring) is scheduled to throw a bullpen session Monday, May 30, after throwing four innings for Class AA Akron Saturday, May 28. Manager Terry Francona will meet with president of baseball operations Chris Antonetti, pitching coach Mickey Callaway and the team's medical staff to determine where Carrasco should pitch next.

Fantasy Tip: It appears that Carrasco may return to the team soon and could make his next pitching appearance for the Indians. He has not pitched for Cleveland for about a month, so owners may want to see him pitch in a game before using him in their lineups.

Indians | Joba Chamberlain to throw Monday

Sun, 29 May 2016 08:25:36 -0700

Cleveland Indians RP Joba Chamberlain (intercostal) is scheduled to throw a bullpen session Monday, May 30. He has been on the 15-day disabled list because of a strained left intercostal muscle.

Fantasy Tip: Chamberlain has posted a 1.93 ERA and 0.86 WHIP through 14 appearances this season, with six walks and 15 strikeouts over 14 innings. When healthy, the 30-year-old right-hander could be useful in AL-only leagues because of his low ERA and WHIP.

Indians | Marlon Byrd in Sunday's lineup

Sun, 29 May 2016 07:20:14 -0700

Cleveland Indians OF Marlon Byrd will bat eighth and play right field against Baltimore Orioles SP Chris Tillman Sunday, May 29. OF Lonnie Chisenhall is not in the starting lineup.

Fantasy Tip: Byrd is batting .224 with two home runs and 10 RBI over the last four weeks and is hitting only .229 versus right-handed pitching in 2016. He's not a recommended fantasy option this afternoon.

Indians | Michael Brantley resumes playing catch

Sun, 29 May 2016 07:10:09 -0700

Cleveland Indians OF Michael Brantley (shoulder) has started playing catch and is continuing to hit off a tee but has not yet resumed hitting in the cage. There is still no established timetable for his return to action.

Fantasy Tip: Brantley should remain stashed in all fantasy formats because of his ability to contribute in multiple offensive categories when healthy. Jose Ramirez and Marlon Byrd will continue to see ample playing time during Brantley's absence and both players are useful in AL-only seasonal leagues.

Indians | Danny Salazar bounces back

Sat, 28 May 2016 17:49:55 -0700

Cleveland Indians SP Danny Salazar bounced back from his shortest outing of the year to allow two runs on six hits while striking out five over six innings in a win against the Baltimore Orioles Saturday, May 28.

Fantasy Tip: With a 2.39 ERA and excellent strikeout totals, Salazar is pitching like a No. 2 fantasy starter.

Indians | Yan Gomes adds to RBI total

Sat, 28 May 2016 17:40:52 -0700

Cleveland Indians C Yan Gomes went 2-for-5 with three RBI in an 11-4 loss to the Baltimore Orioles Saturday, May 28, and he has 12 RBI in his last 10 games.

Fantasy Tip: His .185 batting average leaves a lot to be desired, but he has enough power to warrant a roster spot in AL-only and two-catcher formats.

Indians | Yan Gomes returns to lineup Saturday

Sat, 28 May 2016 10:07:09 -0700

Cleveland Indians C Yan Gomes is back in the lineup against Baltimore Orioles SP Ubaldo Jimenez Saturday, May 28, batting seventh.

Fantasy Tip: Although Gomes is 3-for-9 against Jimenez in his career, he's batting just .154 (10-for-65) this month, with one hit in 11 at-bats over the past week. Better catching options should be available for a similar price in daily fantasy games.

Indians | Jose Ramirez perfect at the plate

Fri, 27 May 2016 19:41:54 -0700

Cleveland Indians 3B Jose Ramirez went 4-for-4 with two doubles and a run scored in a 6-4 loss to the Baltimore Orioles Friday, May 27.

Fantasy Tip: Ramirez has his average up to .308, and his multi-position eligibility makes him worth a look in AL-only formats, especially while Michael Brantley is sidelined.

Indians | Yan Gomes, Marlon Byrd sitting

Fri, 27 May 2016 13:43:17 -0700

Cleveland Indians C Yan Gomes and OF Marlon Byrd are not in the starting lineup Friday, May 27. C Chris Gimenez is behind the dish and hitting eighth, while 3B/OF Jose Ramirez is starting in left field and batting fifth against Baltimore Orioles SP Mike Wright.

Fantasy Tip: Ramirez is making the most of his playing time with the Tribe, hitting .287 with three home runs and 18 RBI. He doesn't have much power, but you can't argue with him as a DFS value pick the way he's been playing. Gimenez has occasional pop behind the dish but is a low-end backstop in daily formats.

Indians | Michael Brantley starting to swing

Fri, 27 May 2016 13:34:06 -0700

Cleveland Indians OF Michael Brantley (shoulder) will begin taking dry swings and could start tee work as well Friday, May 27, according to manager Terry Francona. However, there remains no timetable for his return to games.

Fantasy Tip: It's good progress for Brantley, but the way things are going now, it's looking like this could be a lost season for the outfielder. He'll need to remain stashed in all formats, though, because of his abilities to contribute across all categories when healthy. Jose Ramirez and Marlon Byrd benefit the most as long as Brantley is out. Ramirez has hit for average but Byrd has more pop in his veteran lumber.

Indians | Carlos Carrasco set for rehab start

Fri, 27 May 2016 12:01:29 -0700

Cleveland Indians SP Carlos Carrasco (hamstring) is set to make his first rehab start for Class AA Akron on Saturday, May 28.

Fantasy Tip: This is great news for Carrasco owners, as he's been out for over a month now. The talented right-hander was out to a marvelous start this season before departing his outing early on April 24. In four outings, he was 2-0 with a 2.45 ERA and 0.95 WHIP, and should be plugged in right away as soon as he's ready to return.

Indians | Cody Allen picks up another save

Wed, 25 May 2016 20:27:41 -0700

Cleveland Indians RP Cody Allen pitched a scoreless ninth inning against the Chicago White Sox Wednesday, May 25, to pick up his 11th save of the season.

Fantasy Tip: Allen has allowed only one run in his 11 appearances this month and has seen his ERA drop significantly during that span. Allen should continue to be the closer for the Indians and should be used in all fantasy leagues.

Indians | Lonnie Chisenhall drives in two

Wed, 25 May 2016 20:23:46 -0700

Cleveland Indians OF Lonnie Chisenhall went 2-for-4 with two RBI against the Chicago White Sox Wednesday, May 25.

Fantasy Tip: Chisenhall has recorded four hits in his last three games after going hitless in his previous five games. Owners in most leagues probably can avoid Chisenhall since he is hitting .256 with zero home runs so far this season.

Indians | Corey Kluber pitches well

Wed, 25 May 2016 20:23:09 -0700

Cleveland Indians SP Corey Kluber allowed two runs on seven hits in 7 1/3 innings against the Chicago White Sox Wednesday, May 25, to pick up his fourth win of the season. He struck out nine batters and walked one during the game.

Fantasy Tip: Kluber has had better performances over his last handful of starts and has allowed only four runs in his last two games. He is scheduled to face the Texas Rangers in his next start and should be a decent starting option even though he will be facing a tough opponent.

Indians | Cody Allen notches 10th save

Wed, 25 May 2016 16:03:57 -0700

Cleveland Indians RP Cody Allen struck out two batters during a scoreless ninth inning to record his 10th save of the season during Cleveland's 4-3 win over the Chicago White Sox Wednesday, May 25.

Fantasy Tip: Allen has found his form in May and returned a win and three saves with a 0.79 ERA and 16 punchouts over 11 1/3 innings during the month. He is producing at an elite level right now, and he should be viewed as a solid closer option going forward.
