Red Sox | Boston hoping to keep Pablo Sandoval at 3B

Fri, 31 Jul 2015 12:00:09 -0700

Boston Red Sox 3B Pablo Sandoval will remain at third base for the time being, as manager John Farrell said the team is making every effort to keep him at the hot corner.

Fantasy Tip: Sandoval ($4,000, 8.0% of cap) continues to struggle with fluctuating weight problems, and he's also had a very disappointing first season at the plate with Boston, going 88-for-338 (.260) with eight home runs and 34 RBI. Things got so bad against left-handed pitching while hitting from the right side that he has even given up switch hitting. He continues to slump and should be avoided on FantasyScore while he works his way through it.

Red Sox | Pablo Sandoval's weight an issue

Thu, 30 Jul 2015 06:33:15 -0700

Boston Red Sox 3B Pablo Sandoval (dehydration) left the game Wednesday, July 29, with what the team described as dehydration. Manager John Farrell was asked if Sandoval's conditioning is an issue. "That's something Pablo has dealt with his entire career," Farrell said. "It continues to be addressed. I can't say tonight is a direct result of that. There are ongoing efforts to support that, to try to get him in the best shape possible."

Fantasy Tip: Sandoval ($4,000, 8.0% of cap) has a .262-8-34 line on the season and hasn't been much of a factor on FantasyScore. Use him in ripe matchups only.

Red Sox | Pablo Sandoval slumping

Mon, 27 Jul 2015 09:38:27 -0700

Boston Red Sox 3B Pablo Sandoval has just two hits in his last 22 at-bats (.091) since July 20. He recorded two hits in the game Sunday, July 26, to snap an 0-for-19 slump at the plate.

Fantasy Tip: Sandoval ($3,700, 7.4% of cap) has been so bad against lefties this year (.194/.219/.204) that he has given up hitting from the right side. His average has dropped to .258 (84-for-326) with seven home runs and 31 RBI. Needless to say he's become a weaker FantasyScore commodity, and you should definitely avoid him against lefties.

Red Sox | Pablo Sandoval sitting vs. 'Stros

Wed, 22 Jul 2015 15:38:08 -0700

Boston Red Sox 3B Pablo Sandoval is not in the starting lineup Wednesday, July 22. OF Brock Holt is starting at third base and batting second against Houston Astros SP Collin McHugh Wednesday.

Fantasy Tip: Sandoval ($3,700, 7.4% of cap) has struggled in July with just a .246/.258/.279 slash line over 62 plate appearances. He can be avoided in the majority of fantasy formats until he turns it around at the dish. Holt ($3,900, 7.8% of cap) hasn't done much recently, either, though. He is riding an active 9-for-40 run with just three runs and a RBI. Aim higher FantasyScore players.

Red Sox | Pablo Sandoval playing Tuesday

Tue, 23 Jun 2015 12:30:01 -0700

Boston Red Sox 3B Pablo Sandoval (ankle) is back in the starting lineup against Baltimore Orioles SP Ubaldo Jimenez Tuesday, June 23. Sandoval is hitting seventh in the batting order.

Fantasy Tip: Sandoval ($3,300, 6.6% of cap) could be a fine value play in daily formats tonight against Jimenez, even after coming off a minor ankle injury. The Kung Fu Panda is 11-for-34 (.324) with two home runs and five RBI in his career against Jimenez.

Red Sox | Pablo Sandoval not starting

Sun, 21 Jun 2015 08:36:51 -0700

Boston Red Sox 3B Pablo Sandoval is not in the starting lineup against Kansas City Royals SP Chris R. Young Sunday, June 21. OF Brock Holt will start at third base and is batting second in the lineup.

Fantasy Tip: Sandoval ($3,300, 6.6% of cap) probably is receiving a day off and should return to the lineup soon. Holt ($2,800, 5.6% of cap) has picked up at least one hit in seven of his last eight games with three multi-hit game in that span. Owners on FantasyScore should consider using Holt as a cheaper option.

Red Sox | Pablo Sandoval injures ankle

Sat, 20 Jun 2015 19:14:33 -0700

Boston Red Sox 3B Pablo Sandoval (ankle) exited in the fifth inning with a left ankle injury against the Kansas City Royals Saturday, June 20. He was replaced by 1B Travis Shaw.

Fantasy Tip: Check back for updates on Sandoval's ($3,300, 6.6% of cap) status moving forward. Shaw entered the game hitless in eight at-bats this year, and is a non-factor for fantasy purposes.

Red Sox | Pablo Sandoval benching under review

Thu, 18 Jun 2015 17:05:12 -0700

Updating a previous story, the Boston Red Sox decision to bench 3B Pablo Sandoval Thursday, June 18, is "under review" by the MLB. Sandoval could still face discipline, but his interpretation of the rule seems to be an issue.

Fantasy Tip: Sandoval ($3,300, 6.6% of cap) had finally picked up his play at the plate, with two hits in each of his past five games, and five of his last six. Once Sandoval rejoins the Red Sox' lineup, he'll be worthy of FantasyScore consideration.

Red Sox | Pablo Sandoval benched

Thu, 18 Jun 2015 14:03:41 -0700

Boston Red Sox 3B Pablo Sandoval was benched for the game against the Atlanta Braves Thursday, June 18, after he admitted to checking his Instagram account during Boston's 5-2 loss to the Braves Wednesday, June 17. 1B Travis Shaw is starting at third base and batting seventh against Braves SP Shelby Miller Thursday.

Fantasy Tip: Make sure to avoid Sandoval ($3,300, 6.6% of cap) in all fantasy formats Thursday. It is an unfortunate situation, too, as he is having a solid month with a .333 batting average and .542 slugging percentage. Shaw ($1,800, 3.6% of cap) has played two career games, so with Miller on the hill, it would be wise to view Shaw as nothing more than a desperation flier in daily contests. FantasyScore players, in particular, should aim higher at first base, too.
