Fri, 03 Jul 2015 14:29:31 -0700

Boston Red Sox C Blake Swihart (foot) was placed on the 15-day disabled list Friday, July 3, because of a foot injury.

Fantasy Tip: Ryan Hanigan probably will receive most of the starts while Swihart is sidelined but probably is not a good option on FantasyScore. Sandy Leon ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) could also receive more starts but should be avoided.

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.

Red Sox | Blake Swihart returns to lineup

Thu, 25 Jun 2015 09:25:50 -0700

Boston Red Sox C Blake Swihart (foot) is back in the starting lineup against Baltimore Orioles SP Miguel Gonzalez Thursday, June 25.

Fantasy Tip: Swihart ($2,800, 5.6% of cap) missed several games with a foot ailment. The switch-hitting youngster hits much better from the left side of the plate (.272), but he hasn't done much offensively as he transitions to the majors. Consider him more of a low-end catching option on FantasyScore.

Red Sox | Blake Swihart still day-to-day

Tue, 23 Jun 2015 14:47:20 -0700

Boston Red Sox C Blake Swihart (foot) remains day-to-day and is out of the lineup again Tuesday, June 23, but he is not yet headed to the disabled list. C Erik Kratz has joined the active roster as a backup Tuesday.

Fantasy Tip: Keep a close eye on Swihart's progress over the next few days. Sandy Leon ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) is filling in as the catcher tonight and should continue to do so for however much longer Swihart is out. Avoid Leon at FantasyScore.
