Boston Red Sox INF Josh Rutledge (knee) was placed on the disabled list with left knee patellar tendinitis Friday, June 17.
Fantasy Tip: Rutledge has only received 56 plate appearances this season, so he was nothing more than a depth option in cavernous mixed and AL-only setups and can be replaced. Marco Hernandez could see an uptick in at-bats as a utility infielder, but he's a desperation fantasy bat.

Boston Red Sox 3B Travis Shaw is not in the starting lineup against Minnesota Twins SP Pat Dean Sunday, June 12. 2B Josh Rutledge will start at third base and is batting eighth in the lineup.
Fantasy Tip: Rutledge is batting .273 in limited playing time this season but has gone hitless in each of his last eight games. Owners should be able to find better options to use and can avoid Rutledge in most leagues.

Boston Red Sox 1B David Ortiz (rest) and 3B Travis Shaw (rest) are both out of the lineup Wednesday, June 8, against San Francisco Giants SP Madison Bumgarner. Ortiz is sitting while the team plays without a designated hitter in a National League park, while 2B Josh Rutledge is filling in at third base and batting seventh.
Fantasy Tip: Ortiz hasn't played first base all year, so it's no surprise to see Hanley Ramirez continue to hold down the fort there while the Red Sox play a rare series at AT&T Park. Shaw, meanwhile, is getting a breather with an elite southpaw on the hill, but owners shouldn't really consider his replacement for this evening in daily games. Rutledge doesn't have a hit in his last 11 at-bats.

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.

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.
