From -- thru  --


Rays | Oswaldo Arcia not starting Friday

Fri, 08 Jul 2016 12:53:22 -0700

Tampa Bay Rays OF Oswaldo Arcia is not starting Friday, July 8, against the Boston Red Sox. 2B Nick Franklin is playing in left field and batting eighth against Red Sox SP Sean O'Sullivan.

Fantasy Tip: This appears to be a normal night off for Arcia, who is hitless in his last five games played. Franklin is hitting .297-1-11 in 15 contests, and that could be enough to merit a low-cost flyer in daily formats. Franklin does not play enough to merit inclusion in regular leagues.

Red Sox | Sean O'Sullivan recalled to start

Sat, 02 Jul 2016 22:12:43 -0700

The Boston Red Sox recalled SP Sean O'Sullivan from Class AAA Pawtucket to start Sunday, July 3, against the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim. RP Pat Light was optioned to the PawSox in the corresponding move.

Fantasy Tip: O'Sullivan is only worth adding in the deepest of AL-only fantasy leagues if you're desperate for starting pitching assistance.

Red Sox | Sean O'Sullivan to start Sunday

Fri, 01 Jul 2016 13:33:09 -0700

Boston Red Sox SP Sean O'Sullivan will make a start Sunday, July 3.

Fantasy Tip: O'Sullivan is facing the weak-hitting Angels on Sunday, so there is some intrigue if you are feeling bold for a spot start in fantasy. However, his 7.94 ERA, 1.85 WHIP and 5.6 K/9 should scare most away in this spot start.

Red Sox | Sean O'Sullivan designated

Tue, 17 May 2016 09:10:51 -0700

Boston Red Sox SP Sean O'Sullivan was designated for assignment Monday, May 16. INF Marco Hernandez was recalled from the minors in a corresponding move.

Fantasy Tip: O'Sullivan wasn't very effective for Boston, sporting a 7.94 ERA while making two fill-in starts. The Red Sox are making room in their rotation for the impending return of Eduardo Rodriguez (knee). Rodriguez is a promising young pitcher with plenty of strikeout upside. Grab him now if he's still available in your league.

Red Sox | Sean O'Sullivan picks up victory

Tue, 10 May 2016 20:30:42 -0700

Boston Red Sox SP Sean O'Sullivan allowed four runs, 12 hits and no walks with three strikeouts over six innings in a win against the Oakland Athletics Tuesday, May 10.

Fantasy Tip: Despite the win, he wasn't particularly sharp and was very hittable. He just happened to get a lot of run support. He is only worth rostering in the deepest of AL-only fantasy leagues if he makes more starts in Beantown.

Red Sox | No decision on Eduardo Rodriguez

Mon, 09 May 2016 13:42:46 -0700

It's unknown when Boston Red Sox SP Eduardo Rodriguez (knee) will be activated from the disabled list for his next start. SP Sean O'Sullivan is starting against the Oakland Athletics Tuesday, May 10.

Fantasy Tip: The lefty Rodriguez has big-time potential. He showed us a glimpse with a 10-6 record, 3.85 ERA, 1.29 WHIP and 7.2 strikeouts per nine innings in his rookie year in 2015. Rodriguez should be owned at least in deep mixed and AL-only leagues, so scoop him up if he's still out there. O'Sullivan is just making a spot start and is a desperation play in daily formats tomorrow.

Red Sox | Henry Owens sent down to work on command

Sat, 07 May 2016 19:37:11 -0700

Boston Red Sox SP Henry Owens was demoted to Class AAA Pawtucket Friday, May 6, and manager John Farrell said Owens needs to work on commanding his fastball with more consistency. In a corresponding move, SP Sean O'Sullivan's contract was selected.

Fantasy Tip: Owens is just 23 years old, so he has more than enough time to figure things out and realize his potential. That being said, it is tough to justify holding on to him outside of AL-only leagues.

Phillies | Sean O'Sullivan sent down

Tue, 07 Jul 2015 06:36:17 -0700

Philadelphia Phillies SP Sean O'Sullivan was outrighted to Class AAA Lehigh Valley Monday, July 6.

Fantasy Tip: O'Sullivan had a rough rotation stint with a 6.08 ERA, and it's hard to see him regaining his spot after the All-Star break. If he was still on your NL-only team, cut him loose.

Phillies | Offense not helping Sean O'Sullivan

Tue, 23 Jun 2015 13:34:09 -0700

Philadelphia Phillies SP Sean O'Sullivan has seen the team score an average of 2.08 runs per game during his starts, which is the lowest average in MLB for a pitcher that has thrown at least 50 innings.

Fantasy Tip: O'Sullivan ($3,300, 6.6% of cap) has not thrown more than six innings in any of his starts this season and has allowed at least four runs in three of his last five starts. Owners on FantasyScore should avoid using O'Sullivan at this point.

Phillies | Sean O'Sullivan ready for Baltimore

Wed, 17 Jun 2015 18:23:20 -0700

Philadelphia Phillies SP Sean O'Sullivan is the probable starter for Thursday, June 18, against the Baltimore Orioles. He has worked at least six innings in each of his past two outings, and at least 5 2/3 innings in six straight starts.

Fantasy Tip: O'Sullivan ($3,300; or 6.6% of cap) might be working deeper into games, but he still has a 5.60 ERA in three outings in June, and a 5.08 ERA in nine starts overall. Still, he could be a low-end FantasyScore option with upside since he faces the equally shaky Bud Norris of the Orioles.
