Jose Ramirez went 2-for-3 with an RBI-double in the third inning in Wednesday's 3-1 loss to the Indians. 

Ramirez was responsible for the only run scored by Indians on Wednesday, as he earned a rare start over Asdrubal Cabrera. He has now gone 4-for-28 in what little opportunity he has received in 2014, so there is no reason he should be on anyone's fantasy radar at this point in the season.

Trevor Bauer allowed three runs on six hits and two walks while striking out seven batters over six innings on Wednesday against the Twins. 

Bauer found himself in the loser column for the first time in five starts on Wednesday, despite putting up a respectable line. He now sits 4-5 with a 3.93 ERA and 1.39 WHIP through 14 starts while striking out 82 batters over 84,.2 innings. Although he walks more batters than you would like to see (30 BB), Bauer remains a solid fantasy option as long as his strikeout rate can stay at it's current level. He will look to get back in the win column when he takes on the Mariners next Tuesday.

Francisco Lindor went 1-for-5 with a base hit, a run scored and a stolen base in his Triple-A debut with the Columbus Clippers Tuesday.

Francisco Lindor is the youngest player in the International League and at 20.8 years-old. he is more than six years younger than league average. He came into his Triple-A debut hitting .278 with 48 RBIs in 89 games at Double-A with a career-tying number of home runs (6) and one stolen base shy of tying his career best of 27 after Tuesdays stolen base.

Update: Zach McAllister appears likely to start for Cleveland on Saturday against the Royals.

News like this enforces the belief that Danny Salazar will stay in the rotation. With T.J. House sent down to the minors and McAllister on-schedule for a Saturday call-up, it would seem that Terry Francona has made his decision. Whether or not this actually sticks for the rest of the season is not yet known. We'll just have to see how everyone fares during their next time on the bump.

Yan Gomes is not in the Indians starting lineup on Wednesday.

With a day game following a night game, Gomes will take a seat Wednesday and let Roberto Perez do the catching. Gomes should be available off the bench if the Tribe needs him.

Indians optioned LHP T.J. House to Triple-A Columbus.

Could it be that the Indians have decided to stick with Danny Salazar and bump House back into the minors? It would seem that way as his next turn was supposed to have been Sunday. However with the move back to Triple-A Buffalo, it would seem that they could simply hold Salazar up and grab an extra reliever for the time being. Stay tuned for Cleveland's next roster move as that should be a little more telling.

Indians recalled INF Jose Ramirez from Triple-A Columbus.

With the demotion of T.J. House and an apparent lack of need for bullpen help at this time, the Tribe will bolster their infield depth with Ramirez. He's probably not going to see much playing time and won't have any fantasy value here as a back-up.

Carlos Santana went 4-for-5 with a home run, two RBI and a pair of runs scored against the Twins on Tuesday.

Santana has been pretty quiet since coming out of the break, so a game like this was much-needed by him and his fantasy owners. He's only batting .215, but his .353 OBP helps us see that he can still contribute elsewhere besides just home runs. His 42 runs scored and 42 RBI aren't exactly world-beating totals, but when compared to other catcher out there, those numbers look fantastic.

Danny Salazar made his return to the big league mound Tuesday and allowed just one run on six hits and three walks with six strikeouts over five innings against the Twins.

Not bad for his first time back, considering how rough his last few Triple-A starts looked. He's still a little on the inefficient side, needing 92 pitches (63 strikes) to complete five frames, but limiting the Twins and pitching his way out of a couple of jams is what we like to see in a youngster. he Tribe hasn't said whether or not he'll stick in the rotation, so nothing is scheduled yet. Stay tuned for that decision, but this outing certainly helped his cause.
