Jose Ramirez went 3-for-4 with a double, a RBI, run scored and a stolen base in the Indians victory against the Rays on Sunday. 

This three hit performance concludes the 2014 campaign for Ramirez. He ends with a .262 average, two home runs, 17 RBIs, 10 stolen bases and a .646 OPS in 68 games. With a potential full-time gig in 2015, Ramirez could be a cheap source of steals for owners. While he excelled in the running department, he left more to be desired handling the bat. Keep that in mind when preparing for your 2015 drafts.

Zach Walters went 2-for-4 with a home run, double and two RBI in the Indians victory against the Rays on Sunday. 

After today's impressive performance, he ends 2014 with a .181 average, 10 home runs, and 17 RBIs. Walters won't be an everyday player in 2015 especially at second base, but he could see time at another position. Regardless, Walters' fantasy value for 2015 is rather low at this point, but with a full-time gig he could be worth stashing on rosters.

David Murphy went 2-for-4 with a home run and two runs scored in the Indians win over the Rays on Sunday. 

The home run was his eighth of the year, and the RBI brought his season total up to 58. He couldn't return to his 2012 numbers but he was better than he was last year in Texas. Murphy was a viable #4 or #5 outfielder for owners, but he could have had a better 2014 campaign. The Indians will likely give him the starting spot again in 2015, so he will remain fantasy relevant.

T.J. House improved to 5-3 after he allowed one run on five hits and no walks with two strikeouts over five innings in the Indians win over the Rays on Sunday. 

House experienced a successful 2014 season that saw him win five ballgames, and accumulate a 3.35 ERA. He turns 26 tomorrow and should just be entering his prime, and fantasy owners could target him later in 2015 drafts. He was a solid option for Cleveland in 2014, and he should've done enough to earn a starting spot in 2015. Target House in 2015.

Jason Giambi still hasn't made a decision on his plans for next season.

He could have retired this season and no one would've noticed. Giambi keeps getting injured whenever he plays and is just not that good anymore.

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

Gomes had himself a solid season behind the plate for the Indians hitting .278 with 21 home runs and 74 RBI through 485 at-bats. With Carlos Santana expected to remain in the infield, we can expect Gomes to once again be a solid fantasy contributor in 2015.

Michael Brantley is not in the Indians starting lineup on Sunday.

Brantley will finish the season slashing .327/.385/.506 with 20 home runs, 97 RBI and 23 stolen bases through 611 at-bats. This was certainly his coming out party and will now see him stock rise up draft boards significantly come next March at the age of 27.

Carlos Carrasco gave up two runs (one earned) on four hits and three walks with 10 strikeouts over 7.2 innings against the Rays on Saturday

Carrasco has been one of the best waiver pick-ups over these last two month, posting a 1.82 ERA over 29.2 innings in Augusta and, before this start, a 1.72 ERA over 35.2 innings in September. He also posted a 73:10 K:BB over those 65.1 innings. Carrasco will be on a number of people's "sleeper" lists next season as he stands a good chance of locking down a rotation spot thanks to his 2014 audition.

T..J House will now start Sunday against the Rays. Danny Salazar has been scratched.

No word on any injury causing this swap, so maybe the Indians are just being cautious about his innings this season, as he did toss 60.2 at Triple-A in addition to the 110 he threw for Cleveland this season.
