Jose Ramirez, #11

News
Ramirez is expected to work at second base while Jason Kipnis (shoulder) is sidelined, Jordan Bastian of MLB.com reports.

The Indians want to get their money's worth out of Ramirez after just inking him to a four-year contract extension this week. The team will have a battle in the remaining weeks of camp to determine who will start at the hot corner with Ramirez sliding over to the cornerstone.

Boone Logan, #48
Year-to-date Stats
WLIPERASVK
2546.13.69157
 
News
Discounting his spring debut, Logan has allowed just one run while striking out eight hitters in his last six Cactus League appearances (5.2 innings).

Logan's first exhibition outing (four runs on two hits and two walks) can be thrown to the wayside. The Tribe's prize bullpen acquisition has since settled in and looks more like the southpaw that held hitters to a .166 BAA over 66 games last season. Logan's role on his new team probably won't be as fantasy-relevant as it was in Colorado over the past three years, but he still can offer serviceable numbers in deep settings. If Andrew Miller or Cody Allen unexpectedly miss time, then Logan's value will get an immense boost, as well.

News
Urshela's chances of making the Opening Day roster have increased due to the injury to Jason Kipnis (shoulder), MLB.com's Jordan Bastian reports.

Jose Ramirez, the team's starting third baseman, may be headed over to temporarily fill Kipnis' shoes at second. If that proves to be the case, an extra glove at the hot corner will be needed on the Tribe's 25-man roster. Urshela is among a handful of players vying for the gig that includes Erik Gonzalez, Richie Shaffer and Yandy Diaz. Although Urshela's offensive capabilities are substandard compared to his competitors, the 25-year-old has one of the better gloves of the group (if not the best) and that may be manager Terry Francona's preferred attribute for whoever he chooses to fill the role.

Edwin Encarnacion, #10
Year-to-date Stats
GAVGRHRRBISB
160.26399421272
 
News
Encarnacion is 9-for-33 (.273) with no home runs and a 42 percent strikeout rate through 14 Cactus League games.

Spring stats usually don't mean much for veterans like Encarnacion, but it's tough to overlook some of his alarming numbers. The good news is that the Tribe's prize offseason acquisition has never really been one to put on a show in spring training -- he owns a career .261/.316/.476 slash line over 11 exhibition seasons. Owners may want to prepare for an early-season adjustment period as Encarnacion settles in with his new team, but the slugger can be expected to make every dollar spent on draft day worth it during the regular season.

3353.05.262950
 
News
Manager Terry Francona said that he'd rather Clevinger provide depth as a starting pitcher from the minor leagues than break camp as a reliever, Zack Meisel of Cleveland.com reports.

Clevinger logged 53 innings for the Indians last season. He posted a 5.26 ERA and tallied 50 strikeouts as he floated between the rotation and bullpen. However, the right-hander is a starter by nature and the organization plans to keep it that way. "You need depth starters," Francona said. "You can always bring him back to the bullpen. If you put a guy in a bullpen role, it's really hard to stretch him out." That said, Clevinger has been terrible this spring in his limited time on the bump (seven runs allowed on six hits and eight walks through 5.2 innings), and the 26-year-old is destined to begin the 2017 campaign at Triple-A Columbus.

Carlos Santana, #41
Year-to-date Stats
GAVGRHRRBISB
158.2598934875
 
News
Santana is 2-for-6 with a strikeout in his first two Cactus League games since returning from the WBC.

Santana entertained on the world stage by hitting .308 (8-for-26) with a pair of doubles, RBI and runs scored for the Dominican Republic. Fantasy owners will hope for carry-over results similar to the ones Santana displayed coming off his previous WBC. Following the 2013 tournament, the slugger opened the MLB regular season by hitting .389 in April. A slight regression from 2016's career year should be expected, but even so, Santana brings plenty of value across all formats.

Michael Brantley, #23
Year-to-date Stats
GAVGRHRRBISB
11.2315071
 
News
Brantley is not in the Indians' Cactus League lineup Friday, Ryan Lewis of the Akron Beacon Journal reports.

No reason for concern was reported, so Cleveland likely is taking it easy with Brantley, who's 3-for-9 through his first three spring games following his debut earlier in the week. Getting him a bit more rest late in spring training and possibly early in the regular season is prudent management as he returns from his shoulder injury. It may limit his value early in 2017, but his potential for returning to MVP-candidate form is increasing his fantasy draft stock.

Jason Kipnis, #22

Injuries
Shoulder - Expected to be out until at least Apr 13 (Updated - 3/24/17)
News
Kipnis (shoulder) began swinging in a cage and participating in light throwing Friday, Jordan Bastian of MLB.com reports.

Despite the incremental progress, Kipnis is still unlikely to return before mid-April and will open the season on the 10-day DL. The veteran infielder has been hampered by the nagging injury throughout spring camp, appearing in just two games. Michael Martinez will likely man the cornerstone until his return.

Cody Allen, #37
Year-to-date Stats
WLIPERASVK
3568.02.513287
 
News
Allen made his seventh Cactus League appearance Thursday against the Rockies and recorded two first-pitch outs.

Cleveland's closer has been eased into action during this year's extended spring training. Aside from one rough outing against the Rangers on March 15, Allen has been solid. In some fantasy circles, owners may be scared of Allen with Andrew Miller looming, but the team is committed to the former and the righty should be drafted with confidence.

Injuries
Shoulder - Questionable for start of season (Updated - 3/25/17)
News
Chisenhall (shoulder) has a mild AC joint sprain and will be shut down for three days before being re-evaluated, Jordan Bastian of MLB.com reports.

The injury occurred when Chisenhall collided with an outfield wall in Friday's spring game, a troubling sign with Opening Day around the corner. The rest period should help, but expect Brandon Guyer to step in if the injury doesn't subside within the next week.

News
Martinez's offensive limitations put him behind the eight ball for an Opening Day roster spot, Zack Meisel of Cleveland.com reports.

Since 2011, Martinez has managed a .197/.241/.266 slash line in 267 MLB games. According to FanGraphs, the 34-year-old owns the worst batting average for any player with 520-plus at-bats over the past six seasons. Martinez has done all he can this spring to prove he's a new man, going 16-for-45 (.356) with six extra-base hits (one home run), seven RBI and five runs over 17 Cactus League games. Unfortunately for the utility man, exhibition numbers can't hide the fact that Martinez has been one of the worst hitters in baseball since making his MLB debut. With younger options like Yandy Diaz and Erik Gonzalez on the rise, Martinez's chance at making the 25-man roster is on shaky ground.

Carlos Carrasco, #59
Year-to-date Stats
WLIPERABBK
118146.13.3234150
 
News
Carrasco (elbow) has only been stretched out to three innings so there is a chance be begins the season on the 10-day disabled list, Jordan Bastian of MLB.com reports.

Carrasco tossed three scoreless frames in his most recent Cactus League start March 13, although it wasn't exactly a who's who in the Cubs lineup. Still, he is making progress. The team might begin with eight relievers since they do not need a fifth starter until April 15, allowing Carrasco more time to heal. Stay tuned.

Yandy Diaz
No Stats Available
News
Diaz has been working on the back fields at the Indians' complex with third-base coach and infield instructor Mike Sarbaugh, like a student cramming for an exam, to earn an Opening Day roster spot as a third baseman, MLB.com's Jordan Bastian reports.

With Jason Kipnis (shoulder) likely to miss the beginning of the season, starting third baseman Jose Ramirez may be pushed across the diamond to fill the hole. Diaz is looking to capitalize on the opening at the hot corner to ensure his place on the 25-man roster. As a member of the Rockies' organization in 2015, the 25-year-old played 126 minor-league games at third base. However, Diaz played a majority of his 103 games last year (at Triple-A) in the outfield. It's widely believed that the Cuban native can hold his own in the box against MLB pitchers -- he owns a career .307/.403/.410 slash line while displaying good plate discipline over 1222 at-bats in the minors -- but the Tribe have other options to temporarily hold down third base if Diaz proves to be a defensive liability.

Nick Goody, #64
Year-to-date Stats
WLIPERASVK
0029.04.66034
 
News
Goody has allowed just one run on three hits and three walks while striking out seven through seven Cactus League games.

Goody has been one of the most impressive arms this spring among the team's large stable of young guns. The Tribe picked up the deceptive reliever from the Yankees, where he had a career 2.19 ERA in the minors. Goody has done all he can to prove his worthy of an Opening Day roster spot, and he'd be a strong relief option in most MLB bullpens. However, he's vying for a role in one of the best bullpens in the game, so he may be forced to open 2017 at Triple-A Columbus.

News
Shaw retired two hitters, one via strikeout, in Thursday's exhibition contest against the Rockies.

Shaw's been smacked around a bit this spring (.387 BAA) and has failed to record a clean inning over his seven appearances. He's a bit behind as manager Terry Francona took a reserved approach with the right-hander due to this year's extended spring training schedule. Look for last season's league leader in appearances (75) to ramp up his game in the final days of camp.

News
Naquin (knee) is back in the Indians' Cactus League lineup Thursday.

The outfielder was scratched from Saturday's contest with bilateral knee soreness but appears to be over it. Manager Terry Francona has expressed his desire to hand Cleveland's everyday center fielder job to Naquin, despite his shaky numbers against left-handed pitching. The 25-year-old has about a week to cement that gig, which would give him stronger value in deep mixed fantasy leagues.

News
Tomlin coughed up five runs and hits over 6.1 innings in Saturday's Cactus League start against the White Sox.

The good news is that Tomlin didn't issue any free passes, but the bad news is that he served up four home runs to a division rival. Despite the uneven performance he already has a spot in the team's rotation sewn up, so sometimes veteran's use these opportunities to work on new pitches or tinker with their existing arsenal. Let's hope that's the case here.

News
The Indians have a roster decision to make on Jackson, who is in camp on a minor-league deal. Jackson has an opt-out clause for Sunday.

Jackson has had a solid spring at the plate, but he might not be needed if Michael Brantley is finally back to 100 percent. It's possible he sticks around with the big club, he could accept at role with Triple-A Columbus or he might decide he has a better chance with another organization. Either way his fantasy future is rather murky.

Gonzalez is among a handful of players battling for the starting third base job on Opening Day, Jordan Bastian of MLB.com reports.

Gonzalez is in the hunt for the starting third base job with Jose Ramirez expected to slide over to second base with Jason Kipnis (shoulder) on the shelf. He will be battling Giovanny Urshela, Yandy Diaz and Richie Shaffer for the gig.
