Red Sox | Still no Hanley Ramirez

Wed, 02 Sep 2015 09:54:59 -0700

Boston Red Sox OF Hanley Ramirez (shoulder) remains out of the starting lineup Wednesday, Sept. 2. OF Rusney Castillo is starting in left field and hitting sixth against New York Yankees SP Masahiro Tanaka.

Fantasy Tip: There appears no return in sight for Ramirez ($4,100, 8.2% of cap), and he will not play the outfield again this year. It's getting to that point where he could just be held out to end the year with Boston not playing for a postseason berth. Castillo ($4,200, 8.4% of cap) hit .338 (27-for-80) with three home runs and 18 RBI and is finishing off the 2015 season strong with everyday playing. He's not a bad option on FantasyScore.

Red Sox | Rusney Castillo hitting sixth vs. Mets

Sun, 30 Aug 2015 07:26:05 -0700

Boston Red Sox OF Rusney Castillo is playing right field and batting sixth against New York Mets SP Noah Syndergaard Sunday, Aug. 30. OF Jackie Bradley Jr. is not in the starting lineup Sunday.

Fantasy Tip: Castillo ($4,200, 8.4% of cap) is having a monster second half. He has a .352/.387/.568 slash line with 19 runs, four home runs and 19 RBI over 25 games. He isn't playing every day, though, so his seasonal value is limited as a result. FantasyScore owners will likely want to look elsewhere Sunday, too, as Syndergaard ($7,900, 15.8% of cap) has been stingy at home this seaosn. Bradley ($4,100, 8.2% of cap) has been playing well, but his seasonal value is also capped platooning with Castillo in right field.

Red Sox | No Jackie Bradley vs. Mets

Fri, 28 Aug 2015 12:08:32 -0700

Boston Red Sox OF Jackie Bradley Jr. is not in the starting lineup Friday, Aug. 28. OF Rusney Castillo is starting in right field and batting seventh against New York Mets SP Matt Harvey Friday.

Fantasy Tip: Castillo ($4,200, 8.4% of cap) and Bradley ($4,100, 8.2% of cap) have been platooning in right field of late, which is a hit to their seasonal value. Castillo owns a .382/.417/.603 slash line over his past 18 games with 15 runs and 18 RBI, but he shouldn't be viewed as a slam-dunk FantasyScore option against Harvey ($9,400, 18.8% of cap) Friday.

Red Sox | No David Ortiz vs. White Sox

Wed, 26 Aug 2015 15:02:34 -0700

Boston Red Sox 1B David Ortiz is not in the starting lineup Wednesday, Aug. 26. OF Hanley Ramirez is batting fourth as the designated hitter against Chicago White Sox SP Chris Sale, which allowed OFs Jackie Bradley Jr. and Rusney Castillo to draw into the lineup.

Fantasy Tip: While Sale ($9,300, 18.6% of cap) has had a few peaks and valleys of late, he presents a brutally tough matchup, and starting Boston hitters at FantasyScore is incredibly risky. Unless you're after a contrarian stack, you're likely better off avoiding them entirely.

Red Sox | Jackie Bradley starting vs. White Sox

Tue, 25 Aug 2015 15:25:02 -0700

Boston Red Sox OF Jackie Bradley Jr. is starting in right field and batting eighth against Chicago White Sox SP Jose Quintana Tuesday, Aug. 25. OF Rusney Castillo is not in the starting lineup Tuesday.

Fantasy Tip: Bradley ($4,100, 8.2% of cap) and Castillo ($4,200, 8.4% of cap) are platooning in right field, so it is a slight hit to both of their seasonal values. Interestingly, left-handed-hitting Bradley is starting against a lefty Tuesday, while Castillo who bats right handed started against a righty Monday, Aug. 24. You'll want to check back daily for updates on who is starting for Boston. Bradley is worth a look at FantasyScore Tuesday, as he has .310/.398/.662 slash line over his past 23 games.

Red Sox | Hanley Ramirez to play 1B?

Tue, 25 Aug 2015 13:37:29 -0700

Boston Red Sox OF Hanley Ramirez is taking ground balls at first base Tuesday, Aug. 25, and he could move to the position to allow OFs Jackie Bradley Jr. and Rusney Castillo to play full time.

Fantasy Tip: A move to first base for Han-Ram ($4,800, 9.6% of cap) would cause Travis Shaw ($4,600, 9.2% of cap) to lose significant playing time and fantasy value in deep mixed leagues. Both Castillo and Bradley are on the rise in fantasy leagues, and their value would receive a further boost if they both become everyday players. Stay tuned.

Red Sox | Rusney Castillo could play some LF

Mon, 24 Aug 2015 15:20:30 -0700

Boston Red Sox OF Rusney Castillo could play some left field before the end of the season, according to interim manager Torey Lovullo.

Fantasy Tip: The Red Sox are resting Hanley Ramirez a bit more as he struggles down the stretch. Moving Castillo ($4,200, 8.4% of cap) could open up more playing time for Jackie Bradley Jr., too, who has picked it up offensively of late. Castillo has a nice mix of power and speed that plays in all fantasy formats, and his hot month of August makes him attractive when he's in the lineup on FantasyScore.

Red Sox | Rusney Castillo in RF Monday

Mon, 24 Aug 2015 13:40:41 -0700

Boston Red Sox OF Rusney Castillo is starting in right field and hitting eighth against Chicago White Sox SP Jeff Samardzija Monday, Aug. 24. OF Jackie Bradley Jr. will start on the bench.

Fantasy Tip: Castillo ($4,200, 8.4% of cap) has been hot in August, hitting .367 (22-for-60) with two home runs and 13 RBI, and he's a fine pick tonight on FantasyScore against the struggling Samardzija.

Red Sox | Hanley Ramirez not playing Sunday

Sun, 23 Aug 2015 09:43:41 -0700

Boston Red Sox OF Hanley Ramirez is not in the starting lineup against Kansas City Royals SP Edinson Volquez Sunday, Aug. 23. OF Rusney Castillo will start in right field and is batting sixth in the lineup.

Fantasy Tip: Ramirez ($4,800, 9.6% of cap) should be back in the lineup in the next game or two. Castillo ($4,200, 8.4% of cap) has at least one hit in 10 of his last 11 games with nine RBI during that span. Owners on FantasyScore should consider Castillo while he is on his hot streak.

Sat, 22 Aug 2015 14:11:14 -0700

Boston Red Sox OF Jackie Bradley Jr. is hitting ninth Saturday, Aug. 22, in place of OF Rusney Castillo.

Fantasy Tip: Bradley ($4,100, 8.2% of cap) is on fire with a .421-3-11 line the past week. He faces Yordano Ventura and is a solid buy on FantasyScore during this hot stretch.
