Sat, 29 Aug 2015 11:40:41 -0700

Fri, 28 Aug 2015 19:18:29 -0700

Indians | Chris Johnson rehab update

Fri, 28 Aug 2015 18:27:14 -0700

Cleveland Indians 3B Chris Johnson (hand) began a minor league rehab assignment with Class AA Akron Friday, Aug. 28.

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.

Indians | Ryan Raburn back in the lineup

Fri, 28 Aug 2015 13:50:47 -0700

Cleveland Indians OF Ryan Raburn will serve as the designated hitter against Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim SP Andrew Heaney Friday, Aug. 28, and is batting fifth in the lineup.

Fantasy Tip: Raburn ($3,200, 6.4% of cap) is hitting .299 with five home runs and 20 RBI against left-handed pitchers this season and could be a cheaper option for owners on FantasyScore to consider.

Indians | Abraham Almonte sitting out

Fri, 28 Aug 2015 13:42:42 -0700

Cleveland Indians OF Abraham Almonte is not in the starting lineup against Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim SP Andrew Heaney Friday, Aug. 28. SS Mike Aviles will start in center field and is batting ninth in the lineup.

Fantasy Tip: Almonte ($3,100, 6.2% of cap) likely will return to the starting lineup in the next game or two. Aviles ($3,100, 6.2% of cap) is hitting only .209 this month and is not a strong candidate on FantasyScore.

Indians | Lonnie Chisenhall out of the lineup

Fri, 28 Aug 2015 13:41:39 -0700

Cleveland Indians 3B Lonnie Chisenhall is not in the starting lineup against Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim SP Andrew Heaney Friday, Aug. 28. 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 out because the team is facing a left-handed pitcher. Sands ($1,800, 3.6% of cap) has only two hits in his last seven games and is not a great option for owners on FantasyScore.

Fri, 28 Aug 2015 10:56:25 -0700

Cleveland Indians SP Danny Salazar (illness) was scratched Friday, Aug. 28, and SP Trevor Bauer will start in his place.

Fantasy Tip: Bauer ($5,200, 10.4% of cap) will have a home matchup against the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim. Bauer is 1-5 with a 6.23 ERA since the All-Star break and isn't a good option on FantasyScore.

Indians | Lonnie Chisenhall swinging hot stick

Wed, 26 Aug 2015 21:21:14 -0700

Cleveland Indians 3B Lonnie Chisenhall went 2-for-5 with a run scored and RBI Wednesday, Aug. 26, against the Milwaukee Brewers.

Fantasy Tip: Chisenhall ($4,200, 8.4% of cap) is 11-for-25 (.440) with four runs scored, a home run and seven RBIs during his current eight-game hitting streak. He is an outstanding FantasyScore option at a mid-level price.

Indians | Francisco Lindor swipes three bags

Wed, 26 Aug 2015 20:43:44 -0700

Cleveland Indians SS Francisco Lindor finished 2-for-3 with a pair of walks and a run scored Wednesday, Aug. 26, against the Milwaukee Brewers. He also stole a career-high three bases.

Fantasy Tip: Lindor ($4,800, 9.6% of cap) has been doing a little bit of everything lately, hitting .387 (36-for-93) with six doubles, two homers, 11 RBIs and four steals in the month of August. At this price level he is a great play.

Indians | Jason Kipnis absolutely rakes at home

Wed, 26 Aug 2015 20:39:07 -0700

Cleveland Indians 2B Jason Kipnis went 2-for-5 with a double, home run and three RBIs Wednesday, Aug. 26, against the Milwaukee Brewers.

Fantasy Tip: Kipnis ($4,600, 9.2% of cap) leads the American League with a .325 average, helped in large part by his production at home. He is hitting a robust .383 with 23 doubles, four triples and five home runs while driving in 28 runs at Progressive Field. He entered the game with a home OPS of 1.062. Needless to say, he is a great mid-level start when he is playing at home.

Indians | Jerry Sands starting at 1B

Wed, 26 Aug 2015 11:54:34 -0700

Cleveland Indians OF Jerry Sands is starting at first base and is hitting eighth against Milwaukee Brewers SP Jimmy Nelson Wednesday, Aug. 26.

Fantasy Tip: Sands ($1,800, 3.6% of cap) is a low-end outfield option in daily games tonight, as he's batting only .143 (5-for-35) with a homer and six RBI against right-handed pitchers this season.

Indians | Giovanny Urshela sitting

Wed, 26 Aug 2015 11:49:35 -0700

Cleveland Indians 3B Giovanny Urshela is not in the starting lineup Wednesday, Aug. 26. SS Jose Ramirez is starting at the hot corner and hitting ninth against Milwaukee Brewers SP Jimmy Nelson.

Fantasy Tip: Nelson has been quite good in the second half for the Brewers, and Ramirez ($2,900, 5.8% of cap) doesn't have much to show at the plate this season, with a .204 average (47-for-230) with only two home runs and 16 RBI. Look elsewhere on FantasyScore.

Indians | Carlos Carrasco placed on DL

Wed, 26 Aug 2015 10:36:56 -0700

Cleveland Indians SP Carlos Carrasco (shoulder) has been placed on the 15-day disabled list with right shoulder inflammation. SP Cody Anderson will fill in for Carrasco until his expected return on Sept. 6.

Fantasy Tip: Carrasco ($8,000, 16.0% of cap) has had a good season and is an elite strikeout pitcher in daily leagues. At that price, it's best to see how he performs when he returns before selecting him on FantasyScore. There are better alternatives to his replacement, Cody Anderson, who is in his first start after returning from a stint on the disabled list.
