Cardinals Manager Expects Matt Holliday to Return With a Vengeance

Cardinals manager Mike Matheny is predicting a "ridiculous" season from Matt Holliday as the slugger looks to put an injury-shortened 2015 behind him. He finished 2015 hitting .279 with four home runs and 35 RBI. When he was on the field last year, Holliday was mostly himself. He started the season reaching base in 45 consecutive... Read More

Kolten Wong Hoping to Keep Gyorko On the Bench

One of the reasons that Jedd Gyorko is a member of the Cardinals is the second-half drop-off of Kolten Wong. Wong's fantastic first-half of 2015 was derailed by a second half that saw him hit .238 with zero home runs post-July. In his best cumulative professional season, Kolten Wong again showed the inconsistency that has frustrated fantasy... Read More

Third Time is the Charm For Danny Salazar

Things clicked for Danny Salazar during his third season in the majors as he broke out in a huge way. He finished 2014 with a 14-10 record, 3.45 ERA, and averaged over a strikeout per inning. Salazar's above-average strikeout rate played out beautifully over a full season as he fanned 195 across 185 innings. There were... Read More

Cardinals Counting on Jaime Garcia in 2016, Fantasy Owners Should Too

Like a knight in shining armor, Jamie Garcia picked the perfect time to pitch more than nine starts in a season since 2012, as he took the hill 20 times for an injury-ravaged Cardinals' rotation. He is currently penciled in as the Cardinals' second starter. 2015 was the reaffirmation that Jamie Garcia is capable of top-tier... Read More

Cody Allen Looking to Achieve Elite Closer Status in 2016

With the AL completely stacked with elite relief arms, Cody Allen has been quietly building up the resume of an top-flight closer. His 2015 ERA was up nearly a run from last year's 2.07 mark, but his FIP of 1.82 was tops in all of baseball. Allen has blossomed into a commanding presence in the back... Read More

New Team, Same Old Mike Leake

Mike Leake chose a new home after a late-season trade from the Reds to the Giants last year, signing with the St. Louis Cardinals for a five year, $80 million contract this off-season. He's projected to be their fourth starter. Mike Leake is one of those players who is better appreciated in the real world... Read More

Trevor Bauer Hoping For Happier Home Outings in 2016

Trevor Bauer's home-road splits were the most concerning aspect of the young right-hander's inconsistent 2015. Opponents had an OPS nearly 200 points higher when facing him at Progressive Field (.797 versus .608). There were some bright sides to Bauer's 2015. He continues to establish himself as a strikeout artist, with his 2015 K/9 rate of 8.69 sitting between Gerrit... Read More

Michael Wacha's Poor End to 2015 May Indicate Problems to Come

Taken as a whole, Michael Wacha's 2015 was a huge success. Unfortunately, there are several factors that indicate the good times about to go off the rails again, not unlike a certain train of crazy. If you saw him pitch in September and October, his ranking as our 31st-overall starting pitcher might seem a little high. In... Read More

Yan Gomes Looking For Redemption After Rough 2016

Following the 2014 season, Yan Gomes seemed primed to become one of the game's top offensive catchers after hitting .278 with 21 home runs and 74 RBI. Instead, he stumbled out of the gate in 2015 and finished with a disappointing 12 home runs and .231 batting average. Gomes had as rough a first half... Read More

Carlos Carrasco Justifies Last Spring's Big Extension, Looks to Repeat in 2016

On April 7th of last year, the Cleveland Indians and Carlos Carrasco agreed on a 4-year, $22 million extension. He wasted little time justifying the Indians' faith as he rewarded them, and fantasy owners, with 14 wins and 216 strikeouts. It was a long time coming for the centerpiece of the 2009 trade that sent Cliff... Read More

Please Leave Carlos Santana in the Middle of the Lineup, Terry Francona

Indians manager Terry Francona admits to contemplating using Carlos Santana in the leadoff spot reports Nick Camino on Twitter, presumably to take advantage of baseball's best walk percentage over the past two seasons rather than his two straight years of .231 batting averages. Santana would make a strange leadoff hitter as his mix of power... Read More

Josh Tomlin Signs 2 Year Extension, Inside Job on 5th Starter Job

Cleveland.com's Zack Meisel is reporting that the newly extended Josh Tomlin is currently expected to be a part of the Tribe's rotation. Indians GM Mike Chernoff said, “he is going to play a meaningful role on this team and he'll have every opportunity to be in the starting rotation.” Tomlin and the Indians are banking... Read More

Cleveland's Top Prospect Bradley Zimmer to Debut in 2016?

On MLB Network's MLB Tonight, Peter Gammons predicted that Indians' prospect Bradley Zimmer will be roaming the Cleveland outfield sometime this year. Outside of injured left fielder Michael Brantley, the Tribe's outfield picture is murky for this season--let alone into the future--so Gammons might not be as far off as that apparently overambitious statement suggests....

Francisco Lindor Looks to Avoid Sophomore Slump After Successful Rookie Campaign

Lindor exceeded everyone's expectations last year as he slashed .313/.353/.482 over 390 at-bats as a rookie. His 12 home runs were a professional high and his OPS grew each of the four months he was in the majors. A consensus top 10 prospect coming into 2015, the Indians took their time in waiting for Lindor... Read More

Which Jason Kipnis is Going to Show Up in 2016?

In a year where he was an All-Star for the second time and hit a career best of .303, Kipnis disappointed fantasy owners by seeing his home run and stolen base totals continue to trend downward. After hitting 31 home runs and stealing 61 bases from 2012-2013, he has hit only 15 home runs and... Read More

Does Mike Napoli Have Anymore Bread in the Oven?

The Indians signed Mike Napoli to a 1 year deal as their starting first baseman after his overall disappointing 2015. His difficulties with right-handed pitchers caused him to become a liability as a full-time starter while he slashed .191/.283/.320 against them. Power is about the only useful stat Napoli cooks up for fantasy owners anymore... Read More

Can Corey Kluber regain his Cy Young Award winning form in 2016?

After winning the AL Cy Young Award in 2014, Corey Kluber failed to maintain an award-winning pace as he finished with an above average line of 9-16 with a 3.49 ERA and 245 strikeouts in 222 innings. This pales in comparison to his Cy Young winning line of 18-9 with a 2.44 ERA and 269... Read More

Indians' President Chris Antonetti shared on MLB Network's High Heat with Christopher Russo that outfielder Michael Brantley continues to be on track to miss the first couple months of the regular season as he recovers from off-season surgery to repair a torn labrum in his right shoulder. After having speaking with him minutes before the... Read More
