Boston Red Sox OF Mike Carp (hamstring) is still dealing with an injury. "He's not full speed, but he's able to play first base, but can't get into the outfield obviously with the way that he's running," manager John Farrell said.
Fantasy Tip: Carp is finding it tough to get consistent playing time in Boston's lineup, and his latest injury doesn't help that. A recent hot stretch has endeared him to deep mixed league owners, but he's probably best utilized in AL-only leagues.

Boston Red Sox 1B Mike Napoli (undisclosed) left the team's game on Thursday, June 13, and was replaced by 1B/OF Mike Carp. Napoli appeared to run slowly to second base when he hit a double, but he didn't appear to be injured.
Fantasy Tip: It's unclear for the time being why Napoli left this contest. Stay tuned. Carp has been raking in limited time and would be worth a mixed league pickup if this were to require a DL stint.

Boston Red Sox OFs Ryan Sweeney, Daniel Nava, Mike Carp and Jackie Bradley are basically fighting for the last two roster spots. Sweeney can opt out of his contract if he doesn't make the roster. Manager John Farrell wouldn't indicate how good of a chance Bradley has at making the team.
Fantasy Tip: Bradley should already be owned in most AL-only and keeper leagues because of his play this spring and because he's a serious opening day roster candidate. He's worth an end-game gamble in deep mixed leagues if he makes the squad.
