Red Sox | Rick Porcello takes no-decision

Thu, 23 Jun 2016 18:53:50 -0700

Boston Red Sox SP Rick Porcello received a no-decision in his start Thursday, June 23, against the Chicago White Sox. The right-hander went 5 1/3 innings, allowing four runs on eight hits and one walk. He also struck out two.

Fantasy Tip: Not the sharpest of outings from the 27-year-old, but he can be excused for this one considering how well he had pitched entering this afternoon's assignment. Porcello had strung together three quality starts prior to this performance, so hopefully he's able to get back on track his next time out. Overall, he's been terrific for fantasy owners this year, being 8-2 with a 3.93 ERA.

Mariners | Franklin Gutierrez not starting

Sat, 18 Jun 2016 12:31:44 -0700

Seattle Mariners OF Franklin Gutierrez is not in the lineup against the Boston Red Sox SP Rick Porcello on Saturday, June 18, after going 3-for-5 with two homers and six RBI on Friday, June 17. OF Seth Smith is drawing the start in right field instead and will bat second. 1B Adam Lind will man first base and hit sixth while C Steve Clevenger will serve as the backstop and bat seventh.

Fantasy Tip: Gutierrez has made three consecutive starts prior to today, but that is only because Seattle has faced left-handers each time. He has been sitting against right-handers, against whom he is hitting only .147 in limited at-bats. Gutierrez is a worthwhile gamble in deeper leagues anytime he faces a southpaw, however, as he is hitting .299 with five homers and 17 RBI against them this season. Most owners can ignore Smith, Lind and Clevenger until further notice.

Red Sox | Rick Porcello evening out

Tue, 07 Jun 2016 15:59:11 -0700

Boston Red Sox SP Rick Porcello is 1-1 with a 5.79 ERA in his last four starts after he began the year 6-1 with a 3.11 ERA in his first seven starts.

Fantasy Tip: Porcello has a 4.00 ERA and 1.09 WHIP as one of Boston's more consistent starters on the year. His career-high 8.0 strikeouts per nine innings is encouraging, too. He should continue to retain value in deep mixed and AL-only leagues as more of a matchup play.

MLB | Red Sox-Royals postponed

Mon, 16 May 2016 13:59:55 -0700

The game between the Boston Red Sox and Kansas City Royals scheduled for Monday, May 16, was postponed due to inclement weather. It will be made up as part of a doubleheader Wednesday, May 18. Red Sox SP Rick Porcello was slated to face Royals SP Yordano Ventura Monday.

Fantasy Tip: Make sure to remove any players from your daily lineups that you might've had from this game today. With Ventura struggling mightily this year, this is a matchup that you should look to avoid for him in all fantasy leagues.

Red Sox | Rick Porcello more consistent

Thu, 21 Apr 2016 11:27:29 -0700

Boston Red Sox SP Rick Porcello has a 3.52 ERA with 81 strikeouts and 14 walks in 76 2/3 innings in 11 starts since returning from the disabled list last August. His strikeout-to-walk ratio is 8.0 and ranks fourth best in the American League. His 0.93 WHIP is 11th. Porcello's sinker has been working and he's been able to keep it down in the zone, despite allowing five home runs this year.

Fantasy Tip: When Porcello's command is on and he's staying down in the zone, he can certainly be useful to fantasy owners in mixed leagues. However, it's hard to say when his slider/sinker combination will be on, making him a shaky pitching commodity. Play the matchups with Porcello for now.

Boston Red Sox SP Rick Porcello allowed three earned runs, six hits and one walk with nine strikeouts over seven innings in a win Wednesday, April 20, against the Tampa Bay Rays.
