Red Sox | Rusney Castillo hitting sixth vs. Mets

Sun, 30 Aug 2015 07:26:05 -0700

Boston Red Sox OF Rusney Castillo is playing right field and batting sixth against New York Mets SP Noah Syndergaard Sunday, Aug. 30. OF Jackie Bradley Jr. is not in the starting lineup Sunday.

Fantasy Tip: Castillo ($4,200, 8.4% of cap) is having a monster second half. He has a .352/.387/.568 slash line with 19 runs, four home runs and 19 RBI over 25 games. He isn't playing every day, though, so his seasonal value is limited as a result. FantasyScore owners will likely want to look elsewhere Sunday, too, as Syndergaard ($7,900, 15.8% of cap) has been stingy at home this seaosn. Bradley ($4,100, 8.2% of cap) has been playing well, but his seasonal value is also capped platooning with Castillo in right field.

Red Sox | Alejandro De Aza playing left field

Sat, 29 Aug 2015 10:37:39 -0700

Boston Red Sox OF Alejandro De Aza will start in left field and bat eighth against New York Mets SP Jacob deGrom Saturday, Aug. 29. OF Jackie Bradley Jr., who started in left field Friday, will bat seventh and play right field Saturday.

Fantasy Tip: OF Rusney Castillo ($4,200, 8.4% of cap) is not in the starting lineup Saturday, so he should be removed from all daily fantasy lineups. Bradley ($4,100, 8.2% of cap) is finally starting to live up to his potential, hitting .338 with five home runs and 22 RBIs this month, while De Aza ($3,400, 6.8% of cap) is batting .296 through 27 August at-bats.

Red Sox | Hanley Ramirez scratched

Fri, 28 Aug 2015 13:45:31 -0700

Boston Red Sox OF Hanley Ramirez (undisclosed) is a late scratch from the starting lineup Friday, Aug. 28. OF Jackie Bradley Jr. is replacing him in left field against New York Mets SP Matt Harvey Friday.

Fantasy Tip: Ramirez ($4,800, 9.6% of cap) can't stay healthy, and it has seriously capped his seasonal value. FantasyScore players will want to make sure to avoid him Friday. Bradley ($4,100, 8.2% of cap) draws a tough matchup against Harvey ($9,400, 18.8% of cap), so you're likely best to look elsewhere in daily contests. Check back for updates on Ramirez's status.

Red Sox | No Jackie Bradley vs. Mets

Fri, 28 Aug 2015 12:08:32 -0700

Boston Red Sox OF Jackie Bradley Jr. is not in the starting lineup Friday, Aug. 28. OF Rusney Castillo is starting in right field and batting seventh against New York Mets SP Matt Harvey Friday.

Fantasy Tip: Castillo ($4,200, 8.4% of cap) and Bradley ($4,100, 8.2% of cap) have been platooning in right field of late, which is a hit to their seasonal value. Castillo owns a .382/.417/.603 slash line over his past 18 games with 15 runs and 18 RBI, but he shouldn't be viewed as a slam-dunk FantasyScore option against Harvey ($9,400, 18.8% of cap) Friday.

Red Sox | No David Ortiz vs. White Sox

Wed, 26 Aug 2015 15:02:34 -0700

Boston Red Sox 1B David Ortiz is not in the starting lineup Wednesday, Aug. 26. OF Hanley Ramirez is batting fourth as the designated hitter against Chicago White Sox SP Chris Sale, which allowed OFs Jackie Bradley Jr. and Rusney Castillo to draw into the lineup.

Fantasy Tip: While Sale ($9,300, 18.6% of cap) has had a few peaks and valleys of late, he presents a brutally tough matchup, and starting Boston hitters at FantasyScore is incredibly risky. Unless you're after a contrarian stack, you're likely better off avoiding them entirely.

Red Sox | Jackie Bradley starting vs. White Sox

Tue, 25 Aug 2015 15:25:02 -0700

Boston Red Sox OF Jackie Bradley Jr. is starting in right field and batting eighth against Chicago White Sox SP Jose Quintana Tuesday, Aug. 25. OF Rusney Castillo is not in the starting lineup Tuesday.

Fantasy Tip: Bradley ($4,100, 8.2% of cap) and Castillo ($4,200, 8.4% of cap) are platooning in right field, so it is a slight hit to both of their seasonal values. Interestingly, left-handed-hitting Bradley is starting against a lefty Tuesday, while Castillo who bats right handed started against a righty Monday, Aug. 24. You'll want to check back daily for updates on who is starting for Boston. Bradley is worth a look at FantasyScore Tuesday, as he has .310/.398/.662 slash line over his past 23 games.

Red Sox | Hanley Ramirez to play 1B?

Tue, 25 Aug 2015 13:37:29 -0700

Boston Red Sox OF Hanley Ramirez is taking ground balls at first base Tuesday, Aug. 25, and he could move to the position to allow OFs Jackie Bradley Jr. and Rusney Castillo to play full time.

Fantasy Tip: A move to first base for Han-Ram ($4,800, 9.6% of cap) would cause Travis Shaw ($4,600, 9.2% of cap) to lose significant playing time and fantasy value in deep mixed leagues. Both Castillo and Bradley are on the rise in fantasy leagues, and their value would receive a further boost if they both become everyday players. Stay tuned.

Mon, 24 Aug 2015 13:40:41 -0700

Boston Red Sox OF Rusney Castillo is starting in right field and hitting eighth against Chicago White Sox SP Jeff Samardzija Monday, Aug. 24. OF Jackie Bradley Jr. will start on the bench.

Fantasy Tip: Castillo ($4,200, 8.4% of cap) has been hot in August, hitting .367 (22-for-60) with two home runs and 13 RBI, and he's a fine pick tonight on FantasyScore against the struggling Samardzija.

Boston Red Sox OF Jackie Bradley Jr. went 3-for-4 with two doubles, two RBI and two runs scored in an 8-6 loss to the Kansas City Royals Sunday, Aug. 23.

Fantasy Tip: Prior to Sunday's game, Bradley ($4,100, 8.2% of cap) has managed just three hits in 17 at-bats since his seven-RBI outburst Aug. 15. While he definitely has some upside, he is not a sure thing at FantasyScore.
