Cleveland Indians Fantasy Spin

Francisco Lindor (ankle, calf) went 2-for-4 with a solo home run in his rehab debut Tuesday with Triple-A Columbus. Lindor's rehab stint with Columbus was supposed to begin on Monday, but it was pushed back after the star shortstop ran into some travel issues because of inclement weather. He looked healthy and well-rested on Tuesday night in Louisville, hitting a single in the top of the third inning before crushing a no-doubter over the right field wall in the top of the fifth. Lindor is nearing the completion of his rehabilitation from preseason calf and ankle injuries and could potentially join the Indians' struggling lineup before the end of the week.

Seattle Mariners Fantasy Spin

Tom Murphy had three of the Mariners' six hits, including two doubles, and drove in a run Tuesday against the Indians. Murphy was long a fantasy sleeper, but that was mostly because he would have played half of his games in Coors as a Rockie. His defense and plate discipline issues always made him problematic as a prospect. He's off to a nice start offensively for the Mariners, though, going 7-for-17 with three extra-base hits and three walks. Still, he probably won't be of any use in mixed leagues unless Omar Narvaez gets hurt.

MLB Betting Trends

Cleveland

The Indians are 1-6 in Carlos Carrasco’s last seven road starts.

Seattle

The Mariners are 0-5 in their last five home games.

Prediction:

Carrasco has been hit hard in two of his first three starts and this is a bad matchup on paper given Seattle’s power. That said, he has a high strikeout rate and induces a decent amount of groundballs. Thus, he should hold up well against the Mariners’ lineup in this park. Meanwhile, the Indians are playing on the road in a pitcher-friendly park and their new-look offense has been hit-or-miss in the early going.

The Pick: Indians/Mariners UNDER 8
