Red Sox | Pablo Sandoval remains out

Fri, 22 May 2015 13:35:26 -0700

Boston Red Sox 3B Pablo Sandoval (knee) remains out of the lineup Friday, May 22, but he said he could pinch hit. His knee remains too sore to make strong throws on defense, but he's hoping to return to the field this weekend.

Fantasy Tip: It's best to avoid Sandoval ($5,200, 10.4% of cap) this weekend at FantasyScore. Brock Holt ($2,700, 5.4% of cap), a switch hitter, is starting again at the hot corner Friday. Although he's been hitting well this year, a matchup against Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim starter Garrett Richards tonight makes Holt an uninspiring FantasyScore pick.

Red Sox | Pablo Sandoval likely for Friday

Thu, 21 May 2015 13:48:40 -0700

Updating a previous report, Boston Red Sox 3B Pablo Sandoval (knee) is expected to play against the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim Friday, May 22, according to manager John Farrell.

Fantasy Tip: FantasyScore players might want to wait for Sandoval ($5,200, 10.4% of cap) to show signs of life at the dish before utilizing him in contests, especially with Garrett Richards on the hill Friday. Plus, Sandoval is just 2-for-21 over his last six starts.

Red Sox | Pablo Sandoval out vs. lefty

Thu, 21 May 2015 13:23:00 -0700

Boston Red Sox 3B Pablo Sandoval (knee) is not in the starting lineup against the Texas Rangers Thursday, May 21. OF Brock Holt is starting at third base and batting sixth.

Fantasy Tip: Make sure to avoid Sandoval ($5,200, 10.4% of cap) in all fantasy formats Thursday. He is 2-for-41 against left-handed pitchers this season, so this has the makings of a full platoon. Holt ($2,700, 5.4% of cap) is stuck in a 4-for-26 funk with just one run and one RBI during the skid. FantasyScore players can take a desperation flier on Holt Thursday, but it is advised to aim higher.

Red Sox | Pablo Sandoval out Wednesday

Wed, 20 May 2015 13:45:57 -0700

Boston Red Sox 3B Pablo Sandoval (knee) is out of the lineup Wednesday, May 20, due to a bruise inside his left knee. Sandoval is day-to-day.

Fantasy Tip: Sandoval ($5,200, 10.4% of cap) could be back within a day or two, so just stash him away on your bench for now. Brock Holt ($2,700, 5.4% of cap) is playing there Wednesday and is definitely worth the price tag.

Red Sox | Pablo Sandoval just sore

Tue, 19 May 2015 19:16:10 -0700

Updating a previous story, Boston Red Sox 3B Pablo Sandoval (knee) is dealing with soreness after leaving the game Tuesday, May 19, against the Texas Rangers. A scan of Sandoval's knee came back clean.

Fantasy Tip: Sandoval ($5,200, 10.4% of cap) was in a major slump before suffering the injury and FantasyScore owners should see how he responds before taking the sizeable risk.

Red Sox | Pablo Sandoval left game

Tue, 19 May 2015 18:25:58 -0700

Boston Red Sox 3B Pablo Sandoval was forced to leave the game Tuesday, May 19, against the Texas Rangers. Sandoval had to be helped off the field.

Fantasy Tip: Sandoval ($5,200, 10.4% of cap) was just 1-for-his-last-19, so at least he won't be interrupting any kind of hot streak. If Sandoval is forced to miss time, expect Brock Holt ($2,700, 5.4% of cap) to take up temporary residency at third base.

Red Sox | Pablo Sandoval out vs. lefty

Thu, 14 May 2015 14:52:54 -0700

Boston Red Sox 3B Pablo Sandoval is not in the starting lineup Thursday, May 14. OF Brock Holt is starting at third base and hitting seventh in the batting order against Seattle Mariners SP Roenis Elias.

Fantasy Tip: Sandoval ($5,200, 10.4% of cap) is batting just .059 (2-for-34) with one RBI while hitting right-handed against lefties this year, so you should avoid him for the foreseeable future against southpaws. Holt ($2,700, 5.4% of cap) is just 2-for-11 (.182) against lefties this year, making him a weak option for FantasyScore users. Elias has held lefty swingers to a .225 average and .669 OPS in his short career.

Red Sox | Boston terrible against southpaws

Wed, 13 May 2015 11:36:09 -0700

The Boston Red Sox are hitting a meager .188 against left-handed pitchers this year, which is dead last in all of baseball, and they have a .638 OPS (ranked 26th) against lefties. OF Hanley Ramirez is about the only hitter on the team succeeded against lefties, going 8-for-24 (.333) with four home runs. 1B Mike Napoli is .240 against lefties this year, while SS Xander Bogaerts is 5-for-25 with zero RBI. DH David Ortiz has five hits in 34 at-bats, and 3B Pablo Sandoval is just 2-for-34 batting from the right side as a switch hitter. The Red Sox will face three left-handed pitchers when they face off against the Seattle Mariners this weekend.

Fantasy Tip: You'll obviously want to avoid most Red Sox players when they face left-handed hurlers, at least for the foreseeable future. Also, all lefty pitchers should at least be considered at FantasyScore when facing Boston, beginning with Roenis Elias ($4,000, 8.0% of cap) as a sleeper pick tomorrow.

Red Sox | Pablo Sandoval struggling against lefties

Tue, 12 May 2015 10:02:43 -0700

Boston Red Sox 3B Pablo Sandoval is just 2-for-31 on the season against left-handed pitchers. He faces Oakland Athletics left-handed SP Drew Pomeranz Tuesday, May 12.

Fantasy Tip: Sandoval ($5,200, 10.4% of cap) is a switch hitter, which makes his splits even more concerning this year. Last year against southpaws he also struggled, hitting just .199 (38-for-191) with five of his 16 home runs for the San Francisco Giants. Until the Kung Fu Panda shows better results from the right side, avoid him at FantasyScore when he faces lefties.

Red Sox | Pablo Sandoval's bat warming up

Tue, 12 May 2015 05:08:37 -0700

Boston Red Sox 3B Pablo Sandoval hit his second home run in as many days and his fourth of the season in a 5-4 win over the Oakland Athletics.

Fantasy Tip: Sandoval ($5,200, 10.4% of cap) may have just needed some time to get used to his new surroundings. He is a decent option in all formats, including daily leagues, since it appears his power is coming to life after an adjustment period.
