Nolan Jones Undergoes Surgery On Thumb

Cleveland Indians third baseman Nolan Jones (thumb), the team's top prospect per MLB Pipeline, had surgery on his right thumb on Wednesday. The youngster will start his rehab this week with the goal of doing unrestricted baseball activities at the start of spring training next year. The 21-year-old left-handed hitter batted .272/.409/.442 with 15 homers, 22 doubles, 63 RBI and seven steals in 126 games with High-A Lynchburg and Double-A Akron last year before playing in the Arizona Fall League. He could get off to a slow start on the farm next year while his thumb continues to heal, but Jones isn't far from his major league debut if he continues to produce. There's a chance we see him later in 2020, so he's one to stash in dynasty/keeper leagues.

Roberto Perez Has Surgery On Ankle

Cleveland Indians catcher Roberto Perez (ankle) underwent successful arthroscopic surgery on Wednesday to remove bone spurs from his right ankle. He is expected to be ready for spring training next year. The 30-year-old is coming off a career year for the Tribe in which he hit 24 home runs and drove in 63 runs while throwing out more than 40 percent of attempted base stealers. He caught more than 100 games without allowing a single passed ball. He was a resounding success in his first year as a full-time starter in Cleveland, and his excellent season has earned him the starting job heading into 2020.

Indians To Pick Up Corey Kluber's Option, Decline Jason Kipnis'

Cleveland Indians general manager Chris Antonetti said that the team plans to pick up starting pitcher Corey Kluber's (arm) 2020 option, but they will decline the options on second baseman Jason Kipnis and relief pitcher Dan Otero. Kluber fractured his arm in May of 2019 and didn't pitch the rest of the way, finishing with an un-Kluber like 5.80 ERA and 1.65 WHIP in his seven starts. He might not be a Cy Young contender again, but Kluber should be able to bounce back next year if he stays healthy. Kipnis hit a mediocre .245/.304/.410 with 17 home runs, 65 RBI and seven steals in 121 games this year. Depending on where he lands, he'll likely just be a middle infield option in single-universe leagues if he sees regular playing time.

Jose Ramirez Remains Out on Sunday

Cleveland Indians third baseman Jose Ramirez (hand) remains out of the starting lineup for Sunday's game against the Washington Nationals. Ramirez has been experiencing soreness in his surgically repaired hand, so he'll miss the weekend series. Yu Change will draw the start at third base and bat sixth versus righty Joe Ross. Chang continues to struggle with the bat at this level. He's not worth a look in DFS contests for Sunday.

Jose Ramirez Sits Out on Friday

Cleveland Indians third baseman Jose Ramirez (hand) is out of the starting lineup for Friday's game against the Washington Nationals. Ramirez is dealing with soreness in his surgically-repaired hand. The Indians have decided to play it safe here, but this is a must win game for Cleveland. Ryan Flaherty will bat eighth and play third base versus righty Austin Voth. Flaherty does not have much upside with the bat and can be ignored here.
