Red Sox | David Ortiz scratched

Sun, 29 May 2016 10:11:11 -0700

Boston Red Sox 1B David Ortiz (foot) was scratched from the starting lineup Sunday, May 29, because of a possible foot injury. 1B Hanley Ramirez is serving as the designated hitter. 3B Travis Shaw is starting at first base, while 2B Josh Rutledge is starting at third base and is batting seventh.

Fantasy Tip: Owners will need to keep an eye on the situation to see if Ortiz will need to miss multiple games. Rutledge has only two hits in his last five games and should be avoided in fantasy leagues.

Red Sox | Travis Shaw not playing Tuesday

Tue, 24 May 2016 12:18:59 -0700

Boston Red Sox 3B Travis Shaw is not in the starting lineup Tuesday, May 24. 2B Josh Rutledge is starting at the hot corner and is hitting eighth against Colorado Rockies SP Jorge De La Rosa.

Fantasy Tip: Rutledge has a nice matchup against a struggling pitcher in his first start off the DL, but it's hard to trust the light-hitting second baseman in any format. He has 13 hits in 35 at-bats (.371) this year but has a career .265 average and has never reached double-digit home runs in his five-year career.

Red Sox | Dustin Pedroia out for Game 2

Wed, 18 May 2016 14:47:19 -0700

Boston Red Sox 2B Dustin Pedroia is not in the starting lineup for Game 2 of a doubleheader against the Kansas City Royals Wednesday, May 18. 2B Josh Rutledge is starting at second base and is hitting sixth against Royals SP Edinson Volquez.

Fantasy Tip: Despite a .407 average this year, Rutledge isn't much to look at offensively and is a desperation daily play against the Royals in the nightcap of the doubleheader. He has 11 hits in 27 at-bats but has no home runs and only three RBI on the year.

Red Sox | Hanley Ramirez, Brock Holt sitting

Wed, 18 May 2016 08:30:08 -0700

Boston Red Sox 1B Hanley Ramirez and OF Brock Holt are out of the lineup Wednesday, May 18, in the first game of a doubleheader. 3B Josh Rutledge is hitting sixth, and OF Chris Young is hitting eighth. C Ryan Hanigan is hitting ninth with C Christian Vazquez also resting.

Fantasy Tip: Young is only worth using against lefties, which Ian Kennedy is not. Rutledge is 4-for- 9 (.444) the last week and might be worth a basement flyer. Hanigan isn't worth starting in DFS.

Red Sox | David Ortiz not starting

Sun, 15 May 2016 09:10:08 -0700

Boston Red Sox 1B David Ortiz is not in the starting lineup against Houston Astros SP Chris Devenski Sunday, May 15. 3B Travis Shaw will start at first base, while 1B Hanley Ramirez will serve as the designated hitter. 2B Josh Rutledge will start at third base and is batting seventh in the lineup.

Fantasy Tip: Ramirez and Shaw have played well and should be starters in all fantasy leagues. Rutledge has only one hit in his last nine at-bats and is not a great option for most owners.

Red Sox | Dustin Pedroia not starting

Sat, 14 May 2016 08:59:03 -0700

Boston Red Sox 2B Dustin Pedroia is not in the starting lineup against Houston Astros SP Collin McHugh Saturday, May 14. 2B Josh Rutledge will start at second base and is batting seventh in the lineup.

Fantasy Tip: Rutledge is hitting .368 with three RBI in his limited playing time this season. Owners in daily fantasy leagues could consider using Rutledge in their lineups but likely will be able to find better candidates for their lineup.

Red Sox | David Ortiz takes a seat

Tue, 10 May 2016 12:14:10 -0700

Boston Red Sox 1B David Ortiz is not in the starting lineup against Oakland Athletics left-handed SP Sean Manaea Tuesday, May 10. 2B Josh Rutledge draws into the lineup at second base and is hitting sixth. 1B Hanley Ramirez is serving as the designated hitter and batting cleanup, while 3B Travis Shaw moves across the diamond to first base.

Fantasy Tip: Ortiz is just receiving a breather. Rutledge has seven hits in 14 at-bats but doesn't give you much hope for power, as he's never reached double-digit long balls in a single season. He's a low-end desperation play in daily leagues. Ramirez and Shaw continue to produce at a high level and are solid picks in any fantasy format this evening.

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 | David Ortiz out of lineup

Mon, 18 Apr 2016 06:55:21 -0700

Boston Red Sox DH David Ortiz is out of the lineup Monday, April 18, against a left-handed starter. 3B Josh Rutledge is hitting seventh.

Fantasy Tip: It's Rutledge's first action of the season against lefty J.A. Happ. His splits the last three years are pretty identical. Rutledge has power, but he hasn't shown much at the major league level to warrant the DFS flyer.

Red Sox | Three Red Sox cut

Mon, 28 Mar 2016 08:44:37 -0700

Boston Red Sox 1B/OF Allen Craig, 2B Josh Rutledge and OF Brennan Boesch were reassigned to minor league camp Monday, March 28.

Fantasy Tip: All three are former fantasy diaper dandies that had AL-only consideration. Rutledge and Craig could still re-emerge into the fantasy landscape in another setting.
