Red Sox | Xander Bogaerts sitting vs. Rays

Tue, 28 Jun 2016 12:25:02 -0700

Boston Red Sox SS Xander Bogaerts is not in the starting lineup Tuesday, June 28. INF Marco Hernandez is starting at shortstop and batting ninth against Tampa Bay Rays SP Chris Archer Tuesday.

Fantasy Tip: Bogaerts is having a monster campaign with a .343/.395/.494 slash line with 59 runs, nine home runs, 50 RBI and 10 stolen bases, as he is well on his way to one of the best five-category returns from a shortstop in recent memory. Manger John Farrell recently said Bogaerts needed a night off, so here it is. This is Hernandez's fourth start in June, which makes him more of a potential flier in daily contests because he isn't receiving enough playing time to move the needle in seasonal leagues.

Red Sox | Xander Bogaerts to see rest

Mon, 27 Jun 2016 06:08:07 -0700

Boston Red Sox SS Xander Bogaerts is tired and needs a day off, according to manager John Farrell.

Fantasy Tip: It's unknown when that day off will come, but Marco Hernandez could see a start this week. He's only hitting .222 and isn't a real good DFS flyer.

Boston Red Sox SS Xander Bogaerts went 3-for-5 with a run scored and three RBI against the Chicago White Sox on Wednesday, June 22.

Red Sox | Xander Bogaerts erupts again versus Twins

Sat, 11 Jun 2016 15:18:52 -0700

Boston Red Sox SS Xander Bogaerts pounded the pitching of the Minnesota Twins for the second straight day, finishing 4-for-5 with a two-run homer, three RBI and four runs scored in a 15-4 rout on Saturday, June 11. Bogaerts also went 4-for-5 with a home run and four RBI in Boston's series-opening win against the Twins on Friday, June 10.

Fantasy Tip: Bogaerts is making this thing look way too easy; he leads the American League in batting average (.358), paces the majors in hits (92) and trails only teammate Mookie Betts in runs (51). Although he has been held hitless three times since wrapping up his 26-game hitting streak on June 2, he has totaled 13 hits in the other four contests. Bogaerts is the top shortstop in fantasy right now and needs to be locked into lineups, barring injuries or rest days.

Boston Red Sox SS Xander Bogaerts was hitless in three at-bats with two walks to snap a 26-game hitting streak Friday, June 3, against the Toronto Blue Jays.

Red Sox | Xander Bogaerts keeps streak alive

Wed, 01 Jun 2016 21:44:04 -0700

Boston Red Sox SS Xander Bogaerts extended his hitting streak to 25 games Wednesday, June 1, against the Baltimore Orioles. The streak is the second-longest in the majors this season. He finished 1-for-5.

Fantasy Tip: Bogaerts has barely kept the streak alive over the past two days. He'll look to push the streak to 26 games Thursday against Ubaldo Jimenez. He is 6-for-15 (.400) with a double, three RBIs, three walks and a .967 OPS in his career against Jimenez. Bogaerts remains a tremendous fantasy and DFS play across the board.

Red Sox | Xander Bogaerts extends hit streak

Tue, 31 May 2016 21:19:19 -0700

Boston Red Sox SS Xander Bogaerts pushed his career-high hitting streak to 24 games with a single in the seventh inning Tuesday, May 31, against the Baltimore Orioles. It is the second-longest streak in the majors this season.

Fantasy Tip: While Tuesday's stat line was nothing to jump up and down about, Bogaerts is hitting a blistering .393 (42-for-107) during the impressive streak with 22 runs scored, five homers and 17 RBIs. He is a must-start fantasy option in all formats, and still not as expensive as you would imagine in DFS given his long-term hot streak.
