Red Sox | Ryan Hanigan could play Friday

Thu, 26 May 2016 19:32:02 -0700

Boston Red Sox manager John Farrell said C Ryan Hanigan (illness, neck) should be available to play Friday, May 27, after leaving the game Wednesday, May 25, due to an illness and stiffness in his neck.

Fantasy Tip: Hanigan is just batting .193 with eight RBI through 57 at-bats in 2016. He has little value outside of AL-only and two-catcher fantasy leagues.

Wed, 25 May 2016 18:52:43 -0700

Boston Red Sox C Ryan Hanigan (illness) left the game early Wednesday, May 25, because of an illness.

Red Sox | Blake Swihart not in catching rotation

Fri, 20 May 2016 16:26:34 -0700

Boston Red Sox C Blake Swihart is taking over in left field for the Red Sox despite just 11 games of experience at Class AAA Pawtucket. He will not be involved in catching duties. Cs Christian Vazquez and Ryan Hanigan will continue to split the catching work. Swihart still sees himself as a catcher in the long run, though. Swihart has made progress on defense, but he needs to work on his pitch-calling before he's ready to get behind the plate again. Boston has been encouraged with how Swihart has transitioned to left field. He'll form a platoon there with OF Chris Young, with Young playing against left-handers.

Fantasy Tip: Swihart's bat has always been better than his glove, and he hit .274 with five home runs and 31 RBI in 84 games as a rookie in 2015. If he continues to hit and fields his position in the outfield, he could stick long term in left in the strong side of a platoon. Gaining outfield eligibility makes him more attractive as a grab off the waiver wire in deep mixed and AL-only formats.

Red Sox | Hanley Ramirez, Brock Holt sitting

Wed, 18 May 2016 08:30:08 -0700

Boston Red Sox 1B Hanley Ramirez and OF Brock Holt are out of the lineup Wednesday, May 18, in the first game of a doubleheader. 3B Josh Rutledge is hitting sixth, and OF Chris Young is hitting eighth. C Ryan Hanigan is hitting ninth with C Christian Vazquez also resting.

Fantasy Tip: Young is only worth using against lefties, which Ian Kennedy is not. Rutledge is 4-for- 9 (.444) the last week and might be worth a basement flyer. Hanigan isn't worth starting in DFS.

Boston Red Sox C Christian Vazquez is not in the lineup Sunday, May 8, against the New York Yankees. C Ryan Hanigan will hit ninth against Yankees SP Luis Severino.

Fantasy Tip: Young and Hanigan have combined to go 1-for-14 at the dish this year and Hernandez will be making his MLB debut this afternoon. None of these players are recommended options for daily fantasy games today.
