Red Sox | Blake Swihart out vs. Rangers

Thu, 21 May 2015 13:42:10 -0700

Boston Red Sox C Blake Swihart is not in the starting lineup against the Texas Rangers Thursday, May 21. C Sandy Leon is starting behind the plate and batting ninth Thursday.

Fantasy Tip: Make sure to avoid Swihart ($2,600, 5.2% of cap) in all fantasy formats Thursday. He is struggling at the highest level with just eight hits over 49 plate appearances through his first 13 games. At this point, his ownership should be reserved to cavernous mixed, two-catcher and AL-only leagues. Leon ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) has hit just .158 over his past 107 plate appearances, and FantasyScore players should view him as nothing more than a desperation source of cap relief.

Red Sox | Blake Swihart sitting against Tampa

Mon, 04 May 2015 12:15:15 -0700

Boston Red Sox C Blake Swihart is not in the starting lineup against the Tampa Bay Rays Monday, May 4. C Sandy Leon is starting behind the dish and batting ninth.

Fantasy Tip: Swihart has started the last two games, so a rest makes sense. He has four strikeouts and a single hit over his first eight plate appearances. Still, he has plenty of upside in seasonal leagues, although, there will likely also be plenty of peaks and valleys. Leon ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) is a career .191 hitter with limited upside, and FantasyScore players should aim higher.

Red Sox | Christian Vazquez has sprained elbow

Mon, 30 Mar 2015 08:58:36 -0700

Boston Red Sox C Christian Vazquez (elbow) is on the 60-day disabled list due to a right elbow sprain. He will visit with Dr. James Andrews for a second opinion on his right elbow after undergoing an MRI exam last Friday. C Ryan Hanigan will become the starting catcher to start the season, and C Sandy Leon will serve as the backup. The trade for Leon likely means Boston would rather have C Blake Swihart have more seasoning in the minors.

Fantasy Tip: A combination of Hanigan and Leon hold very little fantasy value in all formats, and the Red Sox catching situation should be avoided wherever possible. Swihart, the team's top prospect, is worth stashing in AL-only and keeper leagues, though, should he come up at some point in 2015.

Washington Nationals C Wilson Ramos was placed on the paternity list Tuesday, Aug. 5, and C Sandy Leon was recalled from Triple-A Syracuse in a corresponding move.
