Red Sox | Carson Smith to have Tommy John surgery

Tue, 24 May 2016 07:42:36 -0700

Boston Red Sox RP Carson Smith (elbow) will undergo Tommy John surgery Tuesday, May 24, and miss the rest of the season.

Fantasy Tip: Smith had some value in the bullpen for ratios, but he can be dropped in all formats. Koji Uehara and Junichi Tazawa will continue to bridge the gap to Craig Kimbrel, and both are worth consideration in deeper leagues.

Red Sox | Carson Smith back to DL

Fri, 20 May 2016 12:55:04 -0700

Boston Red Sox RP Carson Smith (forearm) was placed on the disabled list Friday, May 20, and he underwent an MRI exam on his right forearm. The team is awaiting the results.

Fantasy Tip: Smith helped fantasy owners last season with a 11.8 K/9, 13 saves and a 2.31 ERA. However, this will be his second trip to the disabled list this year, and there are very few formats -- if any -- where stashing him is advised. It might be worth waiting for the MRI results, but a serious injury announcement likely looms. Koji Uehara, Junichi Tazawa and Matt Barnes are the Boston relievers seeing the most innings behind closer Craig Kimbrel, and Uehara is the best add as a speculative source of saves.

Red Sox | More forearm problems for Carson Smith

Wed, 18 May 2016 11:02:15 -0700

Boston Red Sox RP Carson Smith (forearm) is dealing with more soreness in his right forearm, and he could return to the disabled list, according to manager John Farrell. Smith hasn't pitched since last Saturday, and the team will see how he feels after his next outing.

Fantasy Tip: Smith, when healthy, is valuable to owners in deeper leagues even without save chances. He posted an 11.8 K/9 last year but has only two strikeouts in his 2 2/3 innings of work so far this year. His forearm issues are clearly bothering him. Until he shows that he's past his arm issues, you might want to go in another direction.
