Red Sox | Xander Bogaerts out of lineup

Sat, 20 Jun 2015 13:27:18 -0700

Boston Red Sox SS Xander Bogaerts is out of the starting lineup Saturday, June 20, against the Kansas City Royals. OF Brock Holt will move to shortstop, with OF Alejandro De Aza starting in right field and batting eighth in the order against RHP Edinson Volquez.

Fantasy Tip: De Aza ($2,900, 5.8% of cap) is 5-for-12 with two doubles and a triple during a mini three-game hit streak. De Aza is always worth consideration against right-handed pitching, and he'll be an option Saturday night, despite the spot at the bottom of the order.

Red Sox | Xander Bogaerts moved to three-hole

Fri, 12 Jun 2015 14:46:11 -0700

Boston Red Sox SS Xander Bogaerts is batting third and playing shortstop against Toronto Blue Jays SP Drew Hutchison Friday, June 12.

Fantasy Tip: Over his last 11 games, Bogaerts ($3,700, 7.4% of cap) is batting .425 with four runs, six RBI and two stolen bases. Moving into the three-hole is a plus for his fantasy value, and he has been receiving more looks closer to the heart of the Boston lineup lately. He is worth owning in the majority of seasonal leagues. FantasyScore players have a nice value on their hands Friday, too, and until his price matches his recent form, actually.

He has picked up at least one hit in eight of his last nine games and has five RBI in that span. Bogaerts is hitting .333 against left-handed pitchers this season and could be a solid option on FantasyScore.

Red Sox | Xander Bogaerts scorching hot

Sat, 06 Jun 2015 05:46:55 -0700

Boston Red Sox SS Xander Bogaerts is 12-for-21 over his last six games with three runs, two doubles, three RBI and two stolen bases, and he has a 1.258 OPS during the stretch.

Fantasy Tip: Bogaerts ($3,700, 7.4% of cap) has been flashing solid plate skills for approximately a month. With a .337 batting average (31-for-92) over his last 28 games dating back to Wednesday, May 6. Still, his counting stats have been a little underwhelming during the span, as he has just 10 runs and eight RBI. The reeling Boston offense has more to do with it than anything, though. Bogaerts projects as a low-risk FantasyScore play while hitting well, especially at his cap-friendly price.

Red Sox | Xander Bogaerts kicking skid

Tue, 02 Jun 2015 19:04:35 -0700

Boston Red Sox SS Xander Bogaerts had two hits, including a double, a run scored and a stolen base during Boston's 1-0 win over the Minnesota Twins Tuesday, June 2. It was his fifth hit over the past two games, which was proceeded by an 0-for-15 six-game slump.

Fantasy Tip: Bogaerts ($3,700, 7.4% of cap) was surging before the slump, so it is encouraging that it only lasted a week. Now, he appears back on track to continue his breakout season. The 22-year-old shortstop might not wow in any particular category, but he is capable of tilting the scales in all five standard categories. He should be owned in all but shallow mixed leagues, and even there, he should be on your radar. In favorable matchups, he is a solid mid-priced play in FantasyScore contests, too.

Sat, 30 May 2015 12:46:25 -0700

Red Sox | Xander Bogaerts back in lineup

Fri, 29 May 2015 13:38:35 -0700

Boston Red Sox SS Xander Bogaerts (forearm) is back in the starting lineup against Texas Rangers SP Yovani Gallardo Friday, May 29. Bogaerts is hitting seventh in the batting order.

Fantasy Tip: Bogaerts ($4,400, 8.8% of cap) was hit by a pitch in the arm last night and came out of the game early. It apparently wasn't serious. Bogaerts was on a seven-game hitting streak before going hitless in his last four games. For what it's worth, Bogaerts has been better at home this year and Gallardo has fared better when pitching in Texas. The game tonight is in Texas.
