Red Sox | Pablo Sandoval drops weight

Thu, 21 Jan 2016 11:58:23 -0800

Boston Red Sox 3B Pablo Sandoval has dropped 20-22 pounds since the end of the season, according to manager John Farrell.

Fantasy Tip: The Panda had one of his most disappointing seasons in 2015, especially when considering most fantasy owners had high hopes for him in his first season in Boston. Sandoval has dropped weight before and it affected his power. But considering his overall game dropped drastically (.245 average), slimming up might be a good thing this time around.

Red Sox | BOS wants Pablo Sandoval to slim down

Thu, 22 Oct 2015 17:25:33 -0700

The Boston Red Sox have asked 3B Pablo Sandoval to lose weight this offseason.

Fantasy Tip: Sandoval's weight has been an issue for as long as he's been in the league but his lackluster performance in 2015 brought more attention to the problem. He hit just .245 with 10 home runs and 47 RBIs in 470 at-bats during his first season in Boston and should be considered a middle-of-the-pack option at the hot corner at best in AL-only and deep mixed drafts next year.

Red Sox | Pablo Sandoval's season over?

Sat, 26 Sep 2015 20:36:00 -0700

Boston Red Sox 3B Pablo Sandoval (illness) will not be going on the upcoming road trip and his season is likely over, interim manager Torey Lovullo said Saturday, Sept. 26.

Fantasy Tip: With Sandoval ($4,400, 8.8% of cap) sidelined, Brock Holt ($3,500, 7.0% of cap) should see regular playing time, and he is worth a look as a cheaper option at FantasyScore most nights.

Red Sox | Pablo Sandoval still out against Orioles

Fri, 25 Sep 2015 12:04:21 -0700

Boston Red Sox 3B Pablo Sandoval (illness) is not in the starting lineup Friday, Sept. 25. SS Deven Marrero is starting at third base and batting sixth against Baltimore Orioles SP Kevin Gausman Friday.

Fantasy Tip: It will be the fifth consecutive game missed for Sandoval ($4,400, 8.8% of cap), but the veteran is expected to return at some point over the weekend. FantasyScore players should view Marrero ($2,500, 5.0% of cap) as nothing more than a low-priced dice roll. He has just 27 career plate appearances in the majors, and he posted an uninspiring .660 OPS through 375 at-bats with Class AAA Pawtucket this season.

Red Sox | Pablo Sandoval has pneumonia

Thu, 24 Sep 2015 15:59:53 -0700

Boston Red Sox 3B Pablo Sandoval (illness) is dealing with a bout of pneumonia and will be re-evaluated Saturday, Sept. 26, according to interim manager Torey Lovullo. Sandoval has missed six of the last seven games. Lovullo wouldn't commit to shutting Sandoval down for the rest of the year but said it will be tough for him to get back to a point where he can play.

Fantasy Tip: Basically Lovullo is telling those that own Sandoval ($4,400, 8.8% of cap) to kiss his availability for the rest of the season goodbye. Drop him in all single-year formats and don't plan on using him again on FantasyScore.

Red Sox | Brock Holt starting vs. Rays

Thu, 24 Sep 2015 12:41:05 -0700

Boston Red Sox OF Brock Holt is starting at third base and batting seventh against Tampa Bay Rays SP Erasmo Ramirez Thursday, Sept. 24. 3B Pablo Sandoval (illness) remains out of the starting lineup Thursday.

Fantasy Tip: Holt ($3,500, 7.0% of cap) boasts a strong .307/.355/.404 slash line over his past 30 games, and he stands as a safe FantasyScore buy Thursday. However, his low slugging percentage highlights his limited upside. All said, Holt is far from a lineup lock. Continue to check back for updates on Sandoval ($4,400, 8.8% of cap), as he should return sooner than later.

Red Sox | Deven Marrero draws into the lineup

Wed, 23 Sep 2015 13:36:49 -0700

Boston Red Sox SS Deven Marrero is starting at third base and batting eighth against Tampa Bay Rays SP Drew Smyly Wednesday, Sept. 23. 3B Pablo Sandoval (illness) and OF Brock Holt are not in the starting lineup Wednesday.

Fantasy Tip: Marrero ($2,500, 5.0% of cap) has just 23 career plate appearances, and he checks out as nothing more than a flier at FantasyScore Wednesday. Sandoval ($4,400, 8.8% of cap) is expected to miss a short period of time, so he projects to rejoin the lineup sooner than later.

Red Sox | Pablo Sandoval to miss a few days

Tue, 22 Sep 2015 13:40:45 -0700

Boston Red Sox 3B Pablo Sandoval (illness) is dealing with a "significant upper respiratory infection," according to manager Torey Lovullo. Sandoval will miss a few days.

Fantasy Tip: Obviously you'll want to avoid Sandoval ($4,400, 8.8% of cap) on FantasyScore at least for the next few days and maybe more. Deven Marrero ($2,500, 5.0% of cap) is starting in place of Sandoval at third tonight, but he should be ignored in all fantasy formats.

Red Sox | Pablo Sandoval sent home with illness

Mon, 21 Sep 2015 13:46:15 -0700

Boston Red Sox 3B Pablo Sandoval (illness) was sent home with an illness and will not play Monday, Sept. 21. Sandoval had a fever over the weekend.

Fantasy Tip: You'll obviously want to take Sandoval ($4,400, 8.8% of cap) out of any daily lineups, and you may want to avoid him for most, if not at all, of this week. Brock Holt ($3,500, 7.0% of cap) starts at third and is hitting seventh against Tampa Bay Rays ace Chris Archer. Fading Holt is the right thing to do tonight.

Red Sox | Pablo Sandoval leaves game Sunday

Sun, 20 Sep 2015 14:59:27 -0700

Boston Red Sox 3B Pablo Sandoval (illness), who had been battling a fever, returned to play Sunday, Sept. 20, but left once again later in the contest.

Fantasy Tip: The team did not give any indication whether Sandoval ($4,400, 8.8% of cap) was lifted as a precaution or whether he felt sick again. He has been batting weak as of late (.247 average), so keep an eye on his status for future matchups.
