Cleveland Indians 3B Chris Johnson is starting at third base and batting seventh against Toronto Blue Jays SP R.A. Dickey Wednesday, Sept. 2. 3B Giovanny Urshela is not in the starting lineup Wednesday.
Fantasy Tip: Urshela ($3,000, 6.0% of cap) is hitting just .223 this season, so he could lose a few at-bats down the stretch to Johnson ($3,600, 7.2% of cap). Johnson made a pinch-hit appearance Tuesday, Sept. 1, but this will be his first start since returning from the disabled list. It isn't a plus-matchup, either, so he likely should be avoided at FantasyScore Wednesday.

Fantasy Tip: Johnson ($3,600, 7.2% of cap) could work his way back into a regular role for the Tribe in the final month of the season after he went 9-for-21 (.429) after being traded from Atlanta. He's worth a look in deep mixed leagues if he's still available and you need corner infield help.

Cleveland Indians SP Danny Salazar (illness) allowed two run and six hits over seven innings while striking out 10 batters in a win against the Toronto Blue Jays Monday, Aug. 31. He reached double digits in strikeouts for the fifth time this season, but first time since June 6.
Fantasy Tip: Salazar ($8,100, 16.2% of cap) is a must-start FantasyScore option due to his high K/9 (strikeouts to nine innings) ratio.
Mon, 31 Aug 2015 14:09:20 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Raburn ($3,200, 6.4% of cap) sees a lot of playing time against left-handed pitchers because he has posted a .310 average against them this season. Raburn is facing a tough pitcher Monday and may not be the best option.

Cleveland Indians 3B Giovanny Urshela is not in the starting lineup against Toronto Blue Jays SP David Price Monday, Aug. 31. SS Mike Aviles will start at third base and is batting ninth in the lineup.
Fantasy Tip: Urshela ($3,000, 6.0% of cap) likely will return to the lineup in the near future. Aviles ($3,100, 6.2% of cap) has six hits in his last 10 games and is not the best option for owners on FantasyScore.
Mon, 31 Aug 2015 13:49:14 -0700
Cleveland Indians 3B Lonnie Chisenhall is not in the starting lineup against Toronto Blue Jays SP David Price Monday, Aug. 31. OF Jerry Sands will start in right field and is batting seventh in the lineup.
Fantasy Tip: Chisenhall ($4,200, 8.4% of cap) is sitting because the team is facing a left-handed pitcher. Sands ($1,800, 3.6% of cap) has only two hits in his last nine games and should not be a starting option.

Fantasy Tip: Brantley ($5,300, 10.6% of cap) is hitting .424 with 17 RBI and 19 runs scored in August, and he is one of the safer options at FantasyScore thanks to his steady bat.
Sun, 30 Aug 2015 13:04:33 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Floyd has not pitched at the major league level this season and as long as he is being used out of the bullpen, he has no value in FantasyScore.
Sun, 30 Aug 2015 08:15:24 -0700
Cleveland Indians C Yan Gomes is not in the starting lineup Sunday, Aug. 30. C Roberto Perez is starting behind the plate and batting eighth against Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim SP Jered Weaver Sunday.
Fantasy Tip: While Gomes ($4,100, 8.2% of cap) has hit four home runs and drove in 18 runs in August, they've come with a .207/.280/.390 slash line. The backstop has been feast or famine of late and an overall disappointment for the season. Perez ($2,100, 4.2% of cap) is nothing more than a desperation source of cap relief at FantasyScore Sunday.
Sun, 30 Aug 2015 00:18:55 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Gomes ($4,100, 8.2% of cap) has had a .111 average in the past week and a .203 mark for August, so a game like this should help Gomes snap out of it a bit. Use Gomes in FantasyScore primarily against the right, as he has seven home runs out of nine against righties.

Cleveland Indians 2B Jason Kipnis will bat leadoff and serve as the designated hitter against Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim SP Garrett Richards Saturday, Aug. 29. INF Jose Ramirez will play second base and bat ninth.
Fantasy Tip: Over the past week, Kipnis ($4,600, 9.2% of cap) is 7-for-21 with a home run and six RBIs. Ramirez ($2,900, 5.8% of cap) is only batting .200 through 70 games this season and is not a viable FantasyScore option.
Sat, 29 Aug 2015 11:40:41 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Almonte ($3,100, 6.2% of cap) is 5-for-15 over the past week and is hitting .273 with two homers and 10 RBIs since the All-Star break. He's worthy of consideration as a FantasyScore value play tonight.
Sat, 29 Aug 2015 11:38:04 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Chisenhall ($4,200, 8.4% of cap) is batting .393 with two home runs and 12 RBIs during the month of August and is hitting .462 over the past week, making him a solid FantasyScore option tonight.
Fri, 28 Aug 2015 19:18:29 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Bauer ($5,200, 10.4% of cap) was starting in place of Danny Salazar, who. was scratched because of an illness. It was his second consecutive quality start following a stretch where he had allowed 15 runs in 11 1/3 innings over a three-game span.
Fri, 28 Aug 2015 18:27:14 -0700
Fantasy Tip: No timetable has been established for Johnson's ($4,100, 8.2% of cap) return. Although he is not expected to be an everyday player once he comes back, he should see ample playing time at first base, third base and in the outfield, so he's worth rostering in deep mixed fantasy formats.
