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.

Indians | Clint Frazier on DL in minors

Wed, 25 May 2016 11:21:51 -0700

Cleveland Indians OF Clint Frazier (hamstring) was placed on the 7-day minor league disabled list with a right hamstring strain Wednesday, May 25. He should be back in the first week of June.

Fantasy Tip: Frazier is baseball's No. 23 prospect this year, according to He was hitting .313 with six home runs, 21 RBI and six stolen bases. He's a pure-hitting outfielder that should be up with the Tribe sometime in 2017. Keep him on your watch list in dynasty/keeper leagues.

Indians | Francisco Lindor on a tear

Wed, 25 May 2016 10:09:04 -0700

Cleveland Indians SS Francisco Lindor is hitting .378 (17-for-45) with seven runs scored in his last 10 games.

Fantasy Tip: Lindor has really impressed after a stellar rookie season, and his slash line is up to .318/.372/.413 with three home runs and 20 RBI. Don't expect him to top his 12 bombs from last season, but the young shortstop is proving he's one of the best at his position. He's not starting Wednesday, so replace him in your lineups. But when he's playing he's a must-start in all formats.

Indians | Francisco Lindor out Wednesday

Wed, 25 May 2016 08:12:59 -0700

Cleveland Indians SS Francisco Lindor is out of the lineup Wednesday, May 25, with SS Jose Ramirez hitting third.

Fantasy Tip: Ramirez has a .269-2-11 line this month that doesn't really jump off the page. He has upside hitting third today against Jose Quintana, though.

Indians | Josh Tomlin moves to 7-0

Tue, 24 May 2016 23:02:52 -0700

Cleveland Indians SP Josh Tomlin improved to 7-0 with his win over the Chicago White Sox Tuesday, May 24. He allowed two runs on five hits and a walk while fanning six over eight frames.

Fantasy Tip: Tomlin has a 3.35 ERA and just 36 K's in 51 innings, but he has a great 0.98 WHIP. The low strikeouts have him remaining on a lot of waivers, and he should be picked up universally.

Indians | Marlon Byrd in LF Tuesday

Tue, 24 May 2016 14:31:30 -0700

Cleveland Indians OF Marlon Byrd is starting in left field and is batting seventh against Chicago White Sox SP Chris Sale Tuesday, May 24.

Fantasy Tip: Byrd's playing time should be steady as long as Michael Brantley remains on the disabled list between left and right field. For that reason he's not a bad depth option in cavernous mixed and AL-only leagues for his power. He has just two home runs this month, though, and is hitting .238 in May, so temper your expectations. He's not attractive in daily games against Sale this evening.

Indians | Jason Kipnis, Yan Gomes resting

Tue, 24 May 2016 14:27:27 -0700

Cleveland Indians 2B Jason Kipnis and C Yan Gomes are not in the starting lineup Tuesday, May 24. 3B/OF Jose Ramirez is starting at second base and is hitting second, while C Chris Gimenez draws the start behind the plate and is batting eighth against Chicago White Sox SP Chris Sale.

Fantasy Tip: Ramirez has been solid for the Tribe this year while moving around multiple positions, but the matchup against the 9-0 Sale is one to avoid him in in daily formats. Gimenez is a no-brainer to avoid, as well. The backup catcher has a slash line of .182/.217/.318 with one home run and one RBI in 22 at-bats.

Indians | Carlos Carrasco throws Monday

Mon, 23 May 2016 20:12:57 -0700

Cleveland Indians SP Carlos Carrasco (hamstring) threw 50 pitches over three innings during a simulated game Monday, May 23, and is scheduled to throw three innings for Class A Lake County Friday, May 27.

Fantasy Tip: Carrasco is working his way back from the hamstring injury and likely will make multiple rehab starts before he returns. Owners should keep him on their bench if they have roster spots available because he could return in the near future.

Indians | Two Indians sitting out

Mon, 23 May 2016 17:39:40 -0700

Cleveland Indians 1B Mike Napoli and C Yan Gomes are not in the starting lineup for the second game of a doubleheader against the Chicago White Sox Monday, May 23. 1B Carlos Santana will start at first base, while 2B Jason Kipnis will serve as the designated hitter. C Chris Gimenez will start at catcher and is batting eighth. 2B Michael Martinez will start at second base and is batting ninth against White Sox SP Erik Johnson.

Fantasy Tip: Gimenez has only one hit in his last at-bats and should be avoided in most leagues. Martinez went 2-for-4 in the first game of the doubleheader but is still not a great starting candidate.

Indians | Michael Brantley to resume swinging

Mon, 23 May 2016 12:56:31 -0700

Cleveland Indians OF Michael Brantley (shoulder) will resume swinging Tuesday, May 24, and continue doing so through the team's road trip. He'll be re-evaluated when the Indians return home.

Fantasy Tip: There remains no timetable for Brantley's return, so his owners will need to remain patient and keep him stashed. Marlon Byrd and Jose Ramirez will continue to benefit the most with starts in the outfield while Brantley is sidelined, with Ramirez being slightly more attractive for his positional versatility in deeper leagues.

Indians | Rajai Davis, Juan Uribe sitting

Mon, 23 May 2016 11:06:45 -0700

Cleveland Indians OF Rajai Davis and 3B Juan Uribe are not in the starting lineup for Game 1 of a doubleheader against the Chicago White Sox Monday, May 23. OFs Michael Martinez and Marlon Byrd are starting and hitting ninth and eighth, respectively. 3B/OF Jose Ramirez is starting at third base and batting fifth against White Sox SP Mat Latos.

Fantasy Tip: Byrd and Martinez have low ceiling for fantasy gamers for Game 1. Ramirez has only one home run but is hittinng .296 (34-for-115) in a utility role for the Tribe and is a cheap value pick against Latos.

Indians | Jose Ramirez, Yan Gomes playing Sunday

Sun, 22 May 2016 08:57:59 -0700

Cleveland Indians 3B/OF Jose Ramirez and C Yan Gomes are back in the starting lineup against Boston Red Sox SP Rick Porcello Sunday, May 22.

Fantasy Tip: Although his overall numbers still look underwhelming, Gomes is 5-for-17 (.294) with two doubles, a home run and five RBI over the past week and is worth considering for daily fantasy lineups. Ramirez is batting .301 versus right-handed pitching in 2016 and is hitting .323 over the past month, so he also merits consideration.
