Red Sox | Dustin Pedroia, Xander Bogaerts starting

Thu, 26 May 2016 12:48:44 -0700

Updating previous reports, Boston Red Sox 2B Dustin Pedroia (hamstring) and SS Xander Bogaerts (thumb) are both in the starting lineup and batting second and third, respectively, against Colorado Rockies SP Jon Gray Thursday, May 26.

Fantasy Tip: It could be slightly risky relying on them in daily contests Thursday, but in seasonal leagues it is all systems go with the middle infield duo. Pedroia boasts a solid .304/.364/.470 slash line for the season, and Bogaerts is in the midst of an 18-game hitting streak.

Red Sox | Dustin Pedroia expects to play

Thu, 26 May 2016 09:08:40 -0700

Boston Red Sox 2B Dustin Pedroia (hamstring) said he expects to play Thursday, May 26, despite leaving early with right hamstring tightness Wednesday, May 25. Pedroia said he is "fine." He was on the disabled list twice last year with hamstring injuries and was limited to 93 games. Manager John Farrell said Pedroia had a cramp sensation and took him out as a precaution.

Fantasy Tip: Boston is likely to play it safe with their 32-year-old second baseman, so don't be surprised to see him rested for a day or two. He's been a great fantasy asset and has been a great value pick so far, hitting .304 with six home runs and 20 RBI from the keystone. Get him back into all starting lineups when he's back.

Red Sox | Dustin Pedroia unable to finish game

Wed, 25 May 2016 18:53:36 -0700

Boston Red Sox 2B Dustin Pedroia (hamstring) left the game early Wednesday, May 25, because of right hamstring tightness.

Fantasy Tip: Owners will need to keep an eye on the situation to see if Pedroia will miss any games because of the injury. Pedroia should be a starting option in all leagues when he is healthy. Marco Hernandez and Josh Rutledge would be candidates at second base if Pedroia is not ready and could be sleeper players in daily fantasy leagues.

Red Sox | Dustin Pedroia out for Game 2

Wed, 18 May 2016 14:47:19 -0700

Boston Red Sox 2B Dustin Pedroia is not in the starting lineup for Game 2 of a doubleheader against the Kansas City Royals Wednesday, May 18. 2B Josh Rutledge is starting at second base and is hitting sixth against Royals SP Edinson Volquez.

Fantasy Tip: Despite a .407 average this year, Rutledge isn't much to look at offensively and is a desperation daily play against the Royals in the nightcap of the doubleheader. He has 11 hits in 27 at-bats but has no home runs and only three RBI on the year.

Boston Red Sox 2B Dustin Pedroia is not in the starting lineup against Houston Astros SP Collin McHugh Saturday, May 14. 2B Josh Rutledge will start at second base and is batting seventh in the lineup.

Fantasy Tip: Rutledge is hitting .368 with three RBI in his limited playing time this season. Owners in daily fantasy leagues could consider using Rutledge in their lineups but likely will be able to find better candidates for their lineup.

Fri, 22 Apr 2016 21:48:29 -0700

Fantasy Tip: Pedroia has back-to-back multi-hit games for the first time this season, and he has hit safely in 13 of the past 14 games. He remains a tremendous fantasy option across all formats when healthy.

Red Sox | Dustin Pedroia, Xander Bogaerts with big games

Thu, 21 Apr 2016 16:29:09 -0700

Boston Red Sox 2B Dustin Pedroia went 3-for-6 with a run scored, double, home run and two RBI in the loss to the Tampa Bay Rays Thursday, April 21. Pedroia was a triple shy of the cycle. SS Xander Bogaerts went 3-for-4 with a run scored, walk and two doubles.

Fantasy Tip: Pedroia has a hit in all but two of the games he's played this year. Despite an increased ground-ball percentage, he has looked fine. Pedroia remains a fantasy starter at second, but his power numbers could be down considerably. Bogaerts injured himself last night but looked just fine today to ease any concerns his owners may have.

Red Sox | Dustin Pedroia hitting too many grounders

Thu, 21 Apr 2016 09:58:32 -0700

Boston Red Sox 2B Dustin Pedroia has a 55.6% ground-ball rate, which is the worst of his career. He has hit into five double plays.

Fantasy Tip: It's early, and he's still hitting .268. He's probably someone to pass on in DFS until he starts squaring the ball up, though.
