Cleveland Indians news, rumors and injuries
Sun, 04 Oct 2015 12:07:42 -0700
Fantasy Tip: After a dismal first half, Ramirez ($3,500, 7.0% of cap) is batting .259 with five home runs and 19 RBIs in 158 at-bats since the All-Star break. He could be worth considering as a FantasyScore value play.

Fantasy Tip: Santana ($4,000, 8.0% of cap) is once again pacing the American League in walks this season, which is helpful for points formats and leagues counting on-base percentage. However, his .397 slugging percentage is a major disappointment, especially after he launched 27 home runs in 2014. He is finishing strong with four home runs and 17 RBI over his past 15 games, though.

Fantasy Tip: Kluber's ($8,600, 17.2% of cap) results never showcased how well he pitched this season (2.97 FIP for the year), as he returned a 3.49 ERA, a 1.05 WHIP and a 9.9 K/9. Perhaps, most disappointing for seasonal owners was the ace being limited to just nine wins on the campaign. Peg Kluber somewhere between his 2014 and 2015 numbers, and view him as a high-end No. 2 starter with the upside to be a fantasy ace in 2016.

Fantasy Tip: Lindor ($4,900, 9.8% of cap) has a .308-2-6 line the last week and is midrange play on FantasyScore.
Sat, 03 Oct 2015 14:27:25 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Kipnis ($4,500, 9.0% of cap) hasn't hit lefties particularly well this year, but he has a .320-0-2 line the last week. He's at a very good price on FantasyScore.
Fri, 02 Oct 2015 19:45:43 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Santana ($4,000, 8.0% of cap) has been boom or bust all season, and in his last nine games alone, he has three games with three or more RBI and five games without any RBI. He is a high-risk, high-reward play at FantasyScore.

Fantasy Tip: Kipnis ($4,500, 9.0% of cap) has been performing well while playing through the pain, going 10-for-30 at the plate over the past week. That being said, the nagging injuries make him a risky play for FantasyScore this weekend.

Fantasy Tip: Tomlin ($7,200, 14.4% of cap) heads into the offseason on a positive note, after having his worst start of the year in his previous outing against the Royals Sept. 26. He allowed two runs or fewer in seven of his ten starts.

Fantasy Tip: Brantley ($6,000, 12.0% of cap) is out for the rest of the regular season, but as long as his recovery goes well, he should be an early-round pick in drafts next season.

Cleveland Indians SP Trevor Bauer started for the first time since Sept. 13, allowing one run on two hits and striking out three over seven innings in a no-decision against the Minnesota Twins Thursday, Oct. 1.
Fantasy Tip: Bauer ($5,200, 10.4% of cap) had been demoted to the bullpen, but he looked sharp in what could be his last start of the year. He has been inconsistent throughout 2015, but he can pile up strikeouts, making him worth a look as a late flier in seasonal leagues next season.

Cleveland Indians C Yan Gomes and 3B Chris Johnson are not in the starting lineup Thursday, Oct. 1. C Roberto Perez is behind the plate and batting seventh, while 2B Michael Martinez draws into the lineup in left field and is hitting eighth against Minnesota Twins SP Tyler Duffey.
Fantasy Tip: Duffey has been very impressive in the last month for the Twins. Perez ($2,100, 4.2% of cap) and Martinez ($1,800, 3.6% of cap) are nothing more than desperation plays as salary cap relief.

Cleveland Indians SP Carlos Carrasco (14-12) allowed five runs on five hits over three innings in a loss to the Minnesota Twins in the first game of a doubleheader Wednesday, Sept. 30. He walked two and struck out five.
Fantasy Tip: Carrasco ($7,900, 15.8% of cap) was making his final start of the regular season and did not retire any of the six batters he faced during the fourth inning before exiting the game. Fantasy owners in redraft leagues can drop him now.
Wed, 30 Sep 2015 18:03:11 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Bauer ($5,200, 10.4% of cap) was sent to the bullpen two weeks ago but only made one relief appearance. There's a possibility he will be on a pitch count Thursday, so FantasyScore owners should avoid using him.
Wed, 30 Sep 2015 17:51:10 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Urshela ($3,000, 6.0% of cap) has been sidelined since Sept. 17, due to soreness in his right shoulder. He is only hitting .222 with six home runs in 257 at-bats this season, including a .194 mark during the month of September, and is not a great FantasyScore option.
Wed, 30 Sep 2015 12:00:38 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Brantley has posted back-to-back seasons over a batting average over .300, and he's gone three straight years with double-digit home runs for the Tribe. He should remain a fine fantasy piece to help build your outfield depth, but he's mainly a batting average asset, and he's dealt with plenty of nagging injuries already.
