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.

Boston Red Sox C Ryan Hanigan is not in the starting lineup against Houston Astros SP Collin McHugh Saturday, July 4. C Sandy Leon will start at catcher and is batting ninth in the lineup.

Fantasy Tip: Hanigan likely is receiving a day off and should return to the starting lineup soon. Leon ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) is hitting only .143 this season and should not be a starting option on FantasyScore.

Red Sox | Blake Swihart sitting out vs. Jays

Mon, 29 Jun 2015 13:19:17 -0700

Boston Red Sox C Blake Swihart is not in the starting lineup Monday, June 29. C Sandy Leon is starting behind the plate and batting eighth against Toronto Blue Jays SP R.A. Dickey Monday.

Fantasy Tip: Swihart ($2,800, 5.6% of cap) has picked up at the dish. He currently sports a five-game hitting streak and .871 OPS over his past 10 outings. He is a low-end catcher option in AL-only, cavernous mixed and two-catcher formats. Leon ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) is 12-for-75 this season, and at this point, he shouldn't be targeted in any fantasy format.
