Red Sox | Sandy Leon belts first homer

Mon, 27 Jun 2016 21:17:57 -0700

Boston Red Sox C Sandy Leon went 2-for-4 with a two-run home run Monday, June 27, against the Tampa Bay Rays.

Fantasy Tip: The homer was Leon's first of the season. He might see semi-regular at-bats in the short term in Beantown, but he is only worth using as a No. 2 fantasy option in deeper AL-only leagues and as a salary saver in DFS play when he draws into the lineup.

Red Sox | Christian Vazquez in danger?

Sun, 26 Jun 2016 04:45:30 -0700

Boston Red Sox C Christian Vazquez could be in danger of losing his roster spot with C Ryan Hanigan (neck) nearing a return and C Sandy Leon swinging a bat well.

Fantasy Tip: The Red Sox have a glut at catcher when you also factor in Blake Swihart, although Swihart is getting more outfield work to make up for that. You may want to see which direction Boston goes at catcher before putting down a player for a daily or regular roster spot. Right now the situation is too fluid.

Fantasy Tip: Leon picked up a double in his only at-bat this season and will be receiving his first start Saturday. Leon is not a great offensive player and can be avoided in most fantasy leagues.

Red Sox | No Blake Swihart against Yankees

Thu, 01 Oct 2015 12:52:51 -0700

Boston Red Sox C Blake Swihart is not in the starting lineup Thursday, Oct. 1. C Sandy Leon is starting behind the plate and batting eighth against New York Yankees SP CC Sabathia Thursday.

Fantasy Tip: Make sure to avoid Swihart ($4,200, 8.4% of cap) in all fantasy formats Thursday. Leon ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) is best avoided, too, as he owns an underwhelming .173/.232/.192 slash line through 118 plate appearances this season. At best, he is a desperation source of cap relief at FantasyScore.

Red Sox | Blake Swihart out against Orioles

Fri, 25 Sep 2015 12:16:58 -0700

Boston Red Sox C Blake Swihart is not in the starting lineup Friday, Sept. 25. C Sandy Leon is starting behind the plate and batting eighth against Baltimore Orioles SP Kevin Gausman Friday.

Fantasy Tip: Leon ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) owns a .437 OPS this season, so he stands as a desperation source of cap relief for FantasyScore players Friday. Expect Swihart ($4,200, 8.4% of cap) to return to the lineup this weekend after sitting out the past two games. Swihart is showing off his long-term upside in the second half with a .295/.350/.402 slash line.

Red Sox | Blake Swihart out vs. Jay Birds

Sun, 20 Sep 2015 07:32:52 -0700

Boston Red Sox C Blake Swihart is not in the starting lineup Sunday, Sept. 20. C Sandy Leon is starting behind the plate and batting eighth against Toronto Blue Jays SP Mark Buehrle Sunday.

Fantasy Tip: Swihart ($4,200, 8.4% of cap) sports a .315/.366/.427 slash line since the All-Star break with 25 runs through 34 games. You'll obviously want to avoid him Sunday, though. Leon ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) enters with a .434 OPS this season, and even at a contest-minimum price, he isn't worth targeting at FantasyScore.

Red Sox | Blake Swihart returns to Red Sox

Mon, 20 Jul 2015 13:10:14 -0700

Boston Red Sox C Blake Swihart (foot) was activated from the 15-day disabled list Monday, July 20. The team also designated C Sandy Leon for assignment. Manager John Farrell said C Ryan Hanigan will remain the starting catcher, but Swihart will play more than a normal backup catcher.

Fantasy Tip: It appears like Swihart ($2,800, 5.6% of cap) will receive a couple of starts during the week for the time being. He picked up at least one hit in seven of his last nine games before being placed on the disabled list. Owners on FantasyScore could consider using Swihart when he is in the lineup.
