Red Sox | Hanley Ramirez absent against Halos

Fri, 01 Jul 2016 14:44:44 -0700

Boston Red Sox 1B Hanley Ramirez (side) is not in the starting lineup Friday, July 1. INF Marco Hernandez is starting at third base and is hitting ninth against Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim SP Jhoulys Chacin. 3B Travis Shaw moves across the diamond to first base.

Fantasy Tip: Han-Ram is dealing with a minor injury and could return as early as Saturday. Hernandez isn't known for a strong bat and should be avoided everywhere.

Red Sox | Travis Shaw drives in five runs

Tue, 28 Jun 2016 20:54:35 -0700

Boston Red Sox 3B Travis Shaw went 3-for-5 with a double, solo home run and five RBIs Tuesday, June 28, against the Tampa Bay Rays.

Fantasy Tip: After posting 20 RBIs in the month of May, Shaw had cooled down a bit in June with a .200 average, no homers and just four RBIs entering this one. He is up to 44 RBIs on the season and he has emerged as a must-start fantasy option in all AL-only leagues, deeper mixed formats and DFS play.

Red Sox | Travis Shaw out of the lineup

Thu, 23 Jun 2016 07:14:47 -0700

Boston Red Sox 3B Travis Shaw (shin, ankle) is out of the lineup Thursday, June 23, with 3B Marco Hernandez hitting ninth.

Fantasy Tip: Hernandez is hitting .227 with a homer in 22 at-bats on the season. He's a weak flyer against James Shields today.

Red Sox | Travis Shaw leaves with shin injury

Wed, 22 Jun 2016 17:45:03 -0700

Boston Red Sox 3B Travis Shaw (shin, ankle) left the game against the Chicago White Sox Wednesday, June 22, because of a right shin contusion. The injury is related to the one he suffered Tuesday, June 21, when he fouled a ball off his right ankle bone. Shaw was replaced in Wednesday's game by 3B Deven Marrero.

Fantasy Tip: The severity of Shaw's injury is unknown, so keep checking back for updates on his condition. Marrero is likely to see the bulk of the playing time at the hot corner if Shaw is forced to miss extended playing time but he is a defensive-minded player who is not a great fantasy option.

Red Sox | David Ortiz not starting Tuesday

Tue, 21 Jun 2016 12:43:22 -0700

Boston Red Sox DH David Ortiz is not in the lineup Tuesday, June 21, against the Chicago White Sox. OF Hanley Ramirez will man the DH slot against White Sox SP Chris Sale, while 1B Travis Shaw is at first and 3B Deven Marrero mans third base.

Fantasy Tip: All these roster changes are largely due to Ortiz sitting out against a left-handed pitcher. Ramirez is a decent bat in all formats as he's warming up (six hits in the last six games). After a slump earlier in the month, Shaw is warming up in daily formats (six hits in the last seven games). Marrero has only been up a few days and does not have significant fantasy value yet.

Red Sox | Travis Shaw makes mechanical adjustment

Fri, 17 Jun 2016 10:17:58 -0700

Boston Red Sox 3B Travis Shaw hit the ball hard three times but only had one hit to show for it Thursday, June 16. He said he recently made a small mechanical adjustment earlier this week that has been working. He didn't specifically identify the change, but he had a line of .137/.200/.196 in a 13-game stretch through Sunday, June 12. Shaw had three hits and two walks in 10 plate appearances against the Baltimore Orioles.

Fantasy Tip: Shaw had a great start to the year but was propped up by a very high BABIP. More regression can be expected, and he's striking out 24.2% of the time. Shaw is still hitting .270, though, with seven home runs and 37 RBI, and he should continue to be a fantasy force in most formats all year because of the potent lineup he resides in.

Red Sox | Travis Shaw in a funk

Wed, 15 Jun 2016 09:50:08 -0700

Boston Red Sox 3B Travis Shaw is 1-for-18 over the recently completed road trip and is hitting just .150 during June. Shaw, however, thinks his struggles are temporary, and he's been working with hitting coach Chili Davis. Shaw is a career .315 hitter at Fenway Park and the Red Sox play their next nine games at home.

Fantasy Tip: Shaw was due for some regression after a really strong start the first two months with a very fortunate batting average on balls in play. His average is down to .268 on the year, and he has seven home runs and 36 RBI. Shaw remains valuable in most seasonal leagues, and he should continue to have plenty of opportunities to drive in runs in this potent offense.

Red Sox | Travis Shaw will not start

Sun, 12 Jun 2016 09:09:48 -0700

Boston Red Sox 3B Travis Shaw is not in the starting lineup against Minnesota Twins SP Pat Dean Sunday, June 12. 2B Josh Rutledge will start at third base and is batting eighth in the lineup.

Fantasy Tip: Rutledge is batting .273 in limited playing time this season but has gone hitless in each of his last eight games. Owners should be able to find better options to use and can avoid Rutledge in most leagues.

Red Sox | David Ortiz, Travis Shaw out

Wed, 08 Jun 2016 15:20:50 -0700

Boston Red Sox 1B David Ortiz (rest) and 3B Travis Shaw (rest) are both out of the lineup Wednesday, June 8, against San Francisco Giants SP Madison Bumgarner. Ortiz is sitting while the team plays without a designated hitter in a National League park, while 2B Josh Rutledge is filling in at third base and batting seventh.

Fantasy Tip: Ortiz hasn't played first base all year, so it's no surprise to see Hanley Ramirez continue to hold down the fort there while the Red Sox play a rare series at AT&T Park. Shaw, meanwhile, is getting a breather with an elite southpaw on the hill, but owners shouldn't really consider his replacement for this evening in daily games. Rutledge doesn't have a hit in his last 11 at-bats.
