Indians | Danny Salazar a strikeout machine

Fri, 31 Jul 2015 10:01:27 -0700

Cleveland Indians SP Danny Salazar has struck out seven or more hitters in 12 of his 18 starts this season, including in each of his last four starts. He is 4-2 with a 3.42 ERA and a .223 opponents' average on the road this season.

Fantasy Tip: The matchup against the Oakland Athletics tonight on FantasyScore is a good one for Salazar ($7,400, 14.8% of cap), who is striking out 10.7 hitters per nine innings. He should definitely be in consideration as one of your two starting pitchers.

Indians | Carlos Carrasco throws a gem

Fri, 31 Jul 2015 08:17:03 -0700

Cleveland Indians SP Carlos Carrasco threw a complete-game victory over the Oakland Athletics Thursday, July 30, striking out seven while allowing two hits, a run and a walk in 103 pitches. It was the third straight complete game for the Indians rotation for the first time since 1994. Carrasco is 11-8 with a 4.03 ERA, 140 strikeouts and 27 walks in 127 1/3 innings this year.

Fantasy Tip: Carrasco's ($7,200, 14.4% of cap) ERA doesn't reflect just how dominant he can be at times, and he's striking out 9.9 hitters per nine innings. He'll continue to be a strong play with the right matchups on FantasyScore, but if he's traded at the deadline, his fantasy value could even be on the rise.

Indians | Lonnie Chisenhall recalled, starts at DH

Thu, 30 Jul 2015 17:08:24 -0700

Cleveland Indians 3B Lonnie Chisenhall was recalled Thursday, July 30, and is in the lineup batting sixth as the club's designated hitter against Oakland Athletics SP Chris Bassitt.

Fantasy Tip: With Brandon Moss and David Murphy being dealt away, Chisenhall, a former highly-regarded prospect, will have yet another opportunity to earn playing time with the Indians. His line currently sits at .209/.241/.345 with just four home runs and 19 RBI in 52 games. Chisenhall should not be deployed in any lineups at the moment, but it wouldn't hurt to track his progress.

Indians | Lonnie Chisenhall called up

Thu, 30 Jul 2015 16:12:24 -0700

Cleveland Indians 3B Lonnie Chisenhall was called up from Class AAA Columbus Thursday, July 30.

Fantasy Tip: Chisenhall won't be on many fantasy owners' radars after a disappointing stint with the Tribe earlier this year, but he was hitting .280 (44-for-157) with three home runs and 21 RBI in the minors, and he figures to see decent playing time with Brandon Moss no longer in town. Plus, he could also add multi-position eligibility if he plays enough in the outfield or at first base. Owners in deeper leagues should take notice. Take a wait-and-see approach with him as a sleeper pick on FantasyScore.

Indians | Lonnie Chisenhall likely coming up

Thu, 30 Jul 2015 13:23:51 -0700

Cleveland Indians 3B Lonnie Chisenhall is "likely" to be activated to take the roster spot of OF Brandon Moss, who was traded to the St. Louis Cardinals. Chisenhall can play the corner outfield spots and first base.

Fantasy Tip: Chisenhall was a disappointment for the Tribe this year, hitting only .209 (37-for-177) with four home runs and 19 RBI, but a new opportunity for playing time could make him valuable, at least in AL-only leagues. Gaining multi-positional eligibility would make him slightly more attractive.

Indians | Brandon Moss dealt to STL

Thu, 30 Jul 2015 06:05:26 -0700

Cleveland Indians OF Brandon Moss was traded to the St. Louis Cardinals for P Rob Kaminsky Thursday, July 30.

Fantasy Tip: Ryan Raburn ($3,200, 6.4% of cap) could fill in right field, or they could turn to Tyler Holt, who picked up his first major league hit last night. Neither are good options on FantasyScore for now but keep an eye on the opening.

Indians | Michael Brantley picking up pace

Wed, 29 Jul 2015 18:15:40 -0700

Cleveland Indians OF Michael Brantley went 2-for-4 with a solo home run and two runs scored Wednesday, July 29, against the Kansas City Royals.

Fantasy Tip: Dr. Smooth ($5,200, 10.4% of cap) has picked up two or more hits in six of the past 17 games, hitting safely in 14 games during the stretch. More importantly for FantasyScore players he has five doubles, four home runs and 13 RBIs over the past 15 games.

Indians | Yan Gomes drives in three runs

Wed, 29 Jul 2015 18:15:11 -0700

Cleveland Indians C Yan Gomes went 2-for-4 with a two-run homer Wednesday, July 29, against the Kansas City Royals, finishing with a total of three RBIs.

Fantasy Tip: Gomes ($3,800, 7.6% of cap) has started to pick it up offensively, going 8-for-27 (.296) over the past eight games, raising his average from .218 to .230 just since July 18. He has eight RBIs over the past nine games, making him a somewhat attractive and cheap play in FantasyScore.

Indians | Giovanny Urshela working on streak

Wed, 29 Jul 2015 18:14:33 -0700

Cleveland Indians 3B Giovanny Urshela had a pair of hits, including a solo home run, Wednesday, July 29, against the Kansas City Royals.

Fantasy Tip: Urshela ($3,000, 6.0% of cap) has hit safely in eight straight games, and he has four extra-base hits during the span. At this price level he is worth a look in FantasyScore, especially if you want to load up on pitching or other batter spots.

Indians | Four-hit game for Michael Bourn

Wed, 29 Jul 2015 18:14:03 -0700

Cleveland Indians OF Michael Bourn had a double and three singles in five trips to the plate Wednesday, July 29, against the Kansas City Royals, scoring a pair of runs.

Fantasy Tip: It hasn't been the most productive season for Bourn ($2,800, 5.6% of cap), but he has shown some signs of life lately. Since July 18 he is 11-for-26 (.423), raising his average from .222 to .242. FantasyScore players might find him to be a decent bargain, just don't expect much in the way of power.

Indians | Career high for Francisco Lindor

Wed, 29 Jul 2015 18:13:05 -0700

Cleveland Indians SS Francisco Lindor went 2-for-5 with a three-run home run Wednesday, July 29, against the Kansas City Royals, finishing with a career-high four RBIs.

Fantasy Tip: The switch-hitting rookie Lindor ($4,100, 8.2% of cap) entered the month with just one homer, but he has two in the past three days for a total of seven RBIs. However, all but one of his season's homers have come at home, and the Indians hit the road for a six-game trip, so FantasyScore players might want to hold off on using him until the team returns to C-Town.

Indians | Jason Kipnis stays hot at home

Wed, 29 Jul 2015 18:11:07 -0700

Cleveland Indians 2B Jason Kipnis went 3-for-5 with a double, two runs scored and an RBI Wednesday, July 29, against the Kansas City Royals. It was his third three-hit game of the three-game series.

Fantasy Tip: Kipnis ($5,400, 10.8% of cap) is hitting a robust .376 at home this season, posting 20 doubles, four triples, four home runs and 23 RBI with an OPS well over 1.000. Unfortunately, the Indians hit the road for six games, but he is still hitting a respectable .291 with a .749 OPS on the road. FantasyScore owners have been loving him lately.

Indians | Corey Kluber goes the distance

Wed, 29 Jul 2015 18:09:17 -0700

Cleveland Indians SP Corey Kluber allowed just one earned run with five hits and one walk while striking out six in a complete game win against the Kansas City Royals Wednesday, July 29. It was his second complete game of the season.

Fantasy Tip: Kluber ($8,800, 17.6% of cap) was 0-3 against the Royals this season, so his performance was a bit of a surprise for FantasyScore players. He has lasted at least 6 2/3 innings in eight straight outings, and he has at least five strikeouts in all of those performances. Win or lose, he continues to produce defense stat lines.

Indians | Nick Swisher continues rehab

Wed, 29 Jul 2015 18:08:44 -0700

Cleveland Indians OF Nick Swisher (knee) will continue his minor-league rehab assignment during the big club's six-game road trip. He has been on the 15-day disabled list since June 14.

Fantasy Tip: Swisher is too brittle to rely upon in FantasyScore these days. If and when he does return, if he can play at least five games in a row without any setbacks, then you can trust him again.

Indians | CLE interested in Carlos Gomez

Wed, 29 Jul 2015 17:28:31 -0700

The Cleveland Indians appear to have strong interest in trading for Milwaukee Brewers OF Carlos Gomez.

Fantasy Tip: Unlike several of the other teams that have expressed interest in Gomez ($5,400, 10.8% of cap), the Indians are not in playoff contention, so a potential acquisition would be made with next season in mind. Gomez is in the third year of a four-year deal worth $28.3 million. Entering play Wednesday, July 29, he was hitting .266 with eight home runs and 43 RBIs through 73 games.
