Red Sox | No David Ortiz Monday

Mon, 25 Apr 2016 13:41:31 -0700

Boston Red Sox 1B David Ortiz is not in the starting lineup in a National League park Monday, April 25. 3B Travis Shaw moves over to first base and is hitting cleanup, while 2B Josh Rutledge draws the start at the hot corner and is batting fifth against Atlanta Braves SP Julio Teheran.

Fantasy Tip: Ortiz may only start one game against Atlanta at first base during the series, so make sure to remove him from your lineups tonight. Shaw receives a slight daily boost hitting cleanup against a pitcher that has been shaky to begin the year. Rutledge is a deep sleeper option for daily formats with three hits in just five at-bats to start the year.

Red Sox | Travis Shaw continues streak

Mon, 18 Apr 2016 15:26:43 -0700

Boston Red Sox 3B Travis Shaw went 2-for-4 with a run scored, an RBI and a double Monday, April 18, against the Toronto Blue Jays. It was his fourth straight game in which he drove in at least one run.

Fantasy Tip: Shaw has seemingly picked up where he left off as a rookie, having logged a .342/.432/.553 slash line in the early going. With Pablo Sandoval far away from the hot corner, Shaw has no concerns about his status as the club's starting third baseman, and therefore should continue to produce. He shouldn't be on any waiver wires.

Red Sox | Pablo Sandoval receives start

Sat, 09 Apr 2016 07:08:40 -0700

Boston Red Sox 3B Pablo Sandoval will start at third base and is batting sixth against Toronto Blue Jays SP R.A. Dickey Saturday, April 9. 3B Travis Shaw is starting at first base and is batting fourth.

Fantasy Tip: Sandoval has received only one at-bat this season and likely will not receive regular playing time early in the season. Owners in most leagues should be able to find better candidates for their lineups. Shaw has gone 4-for-9 in three games and could be an option in some deeper leagues.

Red Sox | Travis Shaw hitting sixth

Mon, 04 Apr 2016 08:58:58 -0700

Boston Red Sox 3B Travis Shaw is hitting sixth Monday, April 4, in the season opener against the Cleveland Indians.

Fantasy Tip: Shaw is hitting behind David Ortiz and Hanley Ramirez in a nice spot to drive in runs. If he went undrafted, give him a look in most formats.

Red Sox | Travis Shaw to start at third

Thu, 31 Mar 2016 07:16:40 -0700

Boston Red Sox 3B Travis Shaw will start at third base over 3B Pablo Sandoval to open the season. Defense was the deciding factor, and Sandoval will try to earn more playing time.

Fantasy Tip: Shaw has had a good spring with a .333 average, two homers and 10 RBIs. His .270-13-36 line in 226 at-bats last season affords him the potential to be a solid low-end starter at the position in fantasy. Sandoval is worth owning in AL-only leagues, but with David Ortiz locked in at DH, his playing time will be sparse.

Red Sox | Travis Shaw struggling

Tue, 29 Mar 2016 13:43:36 -0700

Boston Red Sox 3B Travis Shaw is currently mired in a 0-for-16 slump during spring training.

Fantasy Tip: Shaw is competing for playing time and is likely behind Pablo Sandoval and Hanley Ramirez because of the high salaries the two elder statesmen carry. Shaw showed well in his rookie campaign last season with a .270/.327/.487 slash line, 13 home runs and 36 RBI through just 248 plate appearances. Currently, he is likely best left to deep mixed and AL-only formats, but expect Shaw to have fantasy relevance in the majority of fantasy leagues for stretches this season, and potentially for most of the season.

Red Sox | Pablo Sandoval, Travis Shaw competing

Tue, 22 Mar 2016 11:31:25 -0700

Boston Red Sox 3B Pablo Sandoval isn't a lock to be the opening day starting third baseman, as he's competing with 1B Travis Shaw for the job this spring. Shaw went 3-for-4 Monday, March 21, to move his spring average to .474. Sandoval went 2-for-3 Monday with two RBI and is hitting .290 in camp. Shaw hasn't played third base since college, but the Red Sox are impressed with his work at the hot corner this spring.

Fantasy Tip: In case fantasy owners needed any more reasons to be skeptical about Sandoval, you now have another one. There's virtually no upside left for the Panda as corner infield insurance in deeper leagues. Shaw, on the other hand, is more attractive as you look for upside selections to take a chance on at the endgame of deep mixed affairs.

Red Sox | Travis Shaw to work at 3B

Tue, 13 Oct 2015 13:19:24 -0700

Boston Red Sox 1B Travis Shaw will play at third base in winter ball this offseason.

Fantasy Tip: Shaw saw time at first base this season but it appears the team wants to move him to another position. It is not known if he will receive an everyday job next season but could be an option on AL-only leagues if he sees a decent amount of playing time.

Red Sox | David Ortiz sits out

Sat, 03 Oct 2015 14:22:33 -0700

Boston Red Sox 1B David Ortiz is out of the lineup Saturday, Oct. 3, with 1B Travis Shaw hitting cleanup.

Fantasy Tip: Shaw ($4,200, 8.4% of cap) has the daunting task of Corey Kluber in front of him. He connected on a homer in two at-bats against him, but he has a .233-2-6 line the last week. He's an all-or-nothing play on FantasyScore.

Red Sox | Pablo Sandoval scratched from lineup

Fri, 04 Sep 2015 14:57:41 -0700

Boston Red Sox 3B Pablo Sandoval (back) was scratched from the lineup Friday, Sept. 4, due to "back tightness." 1B Travis Shaw will take his place at third base and hit fifth against Philadelphia Phillies SP Adam Morgan.

Fantasy Tip: Shaw ($3,600, 7.2% of cap) surprisingly is hitting a cool .297 (11-for-37) in a small sample size against lefties this year. Morgan isn't an imposing lefty, so Shaw could deliver again against a southpaw tonight as a sleeper option on FantasyScore.
