Boston Red Sox SP Matt Barnes is likely to take another turn in the rotation this weekend against the Kansas City Royals with SP Steven Wright (concussion) slow to recover and unlikely to return.
Fantasy Tip: Barnes ($3,600, 7.2% of cap) filled in Monday and was subpar, so FantasyScore players won't want to take a chance on him against a solid hitting club like the Royals.

Boston Red Sox SP Matt Barnes is starting against the Cleveland Indians Monday, Aug. 17.
Fantasy Tip: Barnes hasn't started a game in his major league career, but he has made five starts this season with Class AAA Pawtucket. He has struggled as a reliever in the majors and owns an uninspiring 5.64 ERA through 22 1/3 innings this season. However, he does have the potential to rack up strikeouts. View him as an extremely risky option in all fantasy formats Monday.
