News
Kipnis is out of the lineup Sunday against the White Sox.

It looks as though manager Terry Francona is just giving Kipnis a precautionary rest after the 30-year-old returned from the disabled list Friday and started the first two games of the series. Kipnis only went 1-for-7 with a walk in those contests, but with no indication that his shoulder presented any problems, it shouldn't be long before he's back to providing his usual blend of pop and speed in the top third of the lineup. Michael Martinez will replace Kipnis at second base Sunday.

News
Chisenhall is not in the lineup Tuesday against the Astros.

Per the usual trend, Chisenhall will head to the bench for a day off with southpaw Dallas Keuchel taking the hill for Houston. Austin Jackson will take over in center field in his stead.

News
Kluber (2-1) scattered three hits and two walks while striking out nine in a complete-game shutout of the White Sox on Friday.

Chicago hitters were overmatched all night, as Kluber faced just two batters over the minimum thanks to two double plays and didn't allow a White Sox runner to even reach second base. After a couple of shaky outings to begin the campaign, the 31-year-old ace now appears to be back in his usual, dominant form. His next start will come Thursday at home against the Astros.

News
Perez went 0-for-2 and drew his first walk of 2017 in Sunday's loss to the White Sox.

The early-season woes continued for the backup catcher Sunday, as he's now just 3-for-23 on the year. Tribe manager Terry Francona is committed to Yan Gomes as the team's routine backstop, and although the starter didn't open the season great, Gomes has picked it up recently. Perez simply isn't receiving enough volume, and with no change coming in the foreseeable future, he's practically irrelevant outside of a punt play in daily formats.

News
Gomes' defensive prowess behind the plate has impressed manager Terry Francona, who had high praise for the veteran before Sunday's game, Jordan Bastian of MLB.com reports.

Gomes' exchange times (length between catch and throw) against attempted base stealers have been elite early in the 2017 campaign. Francona called one of Gomes' recent gun-downs "Santiago-esque," a reference to former MLB standout Benito Santiago. The backstop's eye-popping defense should buy him plenty of time to overcome a slow start at the plate. Gomes is slashing a paltry .171/261/.268 through 47 plate appearances.

News
Carrasco (2-1) pitched eight scoreless innings with just three hits and a walk allowed and eight strikeouts during Saturday's win over the White Sox.

It's always encouraging when an ace takes care of business against an inferior opponent, and Carrasco did just that Saturday. He's now sporting a 1.65 ERA, 0.80 WHIP and has struck out 27 batters through 27.1 innings to start the campaign. Carrasco lines up to face the Mariners next.

News
Salazar (1-2) allowed four runs on seven hits and three walks while striking out nine White Sox over five frames in Sunday's loss.

Salazar battled command issues in the fifth, when he threw behind Jose Abreu with a two-seamer, then unintentionally hit the slugger with a changeup that sailed up and in. Two batters later, Avisail Garcia -- who entered the at-bat 0-for-8 in the series -- hammered Salazar's changeup to center field (with an exit velocity of 108 mph) for an RBI double. The fantastic strikeout rate (14.3 K/9) continued Sunday, but it was once again offset by wildness, as the right-hander now owns a career-worst 4.37 BB/9 through four starts. Salazar will look to improve his control in his next start Saturday versus Seattle.

News
Guyer will start in left field and bat third in the order Sunday against the White Sox.

Guyer will be a direct replacement in the lineup for Michael Brantley, who will be rewarded with a day off after homering and driving in two runs Saturday. It's likely that Guyer's excellent career mark against left-handed pitching will make him a mainstay in the Tribe lineup whenever a southpaw is starting for the opposition, and given his favorable position in the No. 3 spot Sunday against White Sox hurler Derek Holland, Guyer could be a nice value play in DFS contests.

News
Lindor went 2-for-4 with a solo home run in Sunday's loss to the White Sox.

The shortstop's fourth-inning shot tied him with Jose Ramirez for the team lead in home runs (five). Lindor is off to a powerful start in comparison to previous campaigns. In 2015 and 2016, it took him 165 and 237 plate appearances, respectively, to reach five homers. This year, he got there in just 82 chances. Last season, Lindor heated up with the weather, so a quick jump out of the gate in April gives the 23-year-old a shot at putting up big numbers in 2017.

News
Encarnacion went 2-for-5 with a two-run home run during Saturday's win over the White Sox.

The slugger is putting a slow start behind him with a 9-for-31 stretch at the plate that's returned five runs, two home runs, six RBI and a .905 OPS over the past eight games. Encarnacion is currently presenting nice value in daily contests and has quickly quieted any significant concerns. He's notoriously streaky.

News
Brantley is out of the lineup Sunday against the White Sox.

Brantley has started seven of the last eight games, and with the White Sox bringing left-hander Derek Holland to the hill Sunday, manager Terry Francona decided it was an opportune time to give the veteran outfielder a day off. Brandon Guyer will fill in for Brantley in left field and bat third in the order.
