Cleveland Indians rookie outfielder Oscar Mercado hit a home run on Tuesday, ending up 1-for-5 with a run scored and three RBI. Mercado's home run came with two on in the fifth inning of Tuesday's 11-0 win. He's put together an excellent rookie season, blasting 15 home runs and slashing .280/.329/.460.
Cleveland Indians outfielder Oscar Mercado (rest) is out of the starting lineup for Thursday's game against the New York Mets. Mercado didn't play in Wednesday's game either, but it doesn't appear to be injury related. The Indians have no designated hitter while in NL parks, so they have a bit of a logjam in the outfield. Greg Allen will play center field and bat second versus righty Noah Syndergaard. Allen doesn't have much upside with the bat and can be avoided in DFS contests.
Cleveland Indians outfielder Oscar Mercado is not in the starting lineup on Wednesday. Greg Allen is starting in center field and is batting second against Mets starter Marcus Stroman. Allen, 26, has very little power (four home runs) and is hitting .239/.298/.393 with 23 RBI and three steals in 163 at-bats this year. While he's in a nice lineup spot on Wednesday, there just isn't much upside in his game to make him an attractive DFS sleeper.
