Red Sox | David Ortiz leaves game

Sat, 29 Aug 2015 00:24:24 -0700

Boston Red Sox 1B David Ortiz (heel) left his team's game against the New York Mets on Friday, Aug. 28, with left heel tightness in the eighth inning. Manager Torey Lovullo said they would reevaluate Ortiz before Saturday's game.

Fantasy Tip: Ortiz ($5,100, 10.2% of cap) could be a day-to-day proposition, meaning you will have to pay attention to the starting lineup when unveiled. It may be best to sit Ortiz for a day or two, because heel tightness can affect bat swings and running around the bases.

Red Sox | Travis Shaw sitting against the Mets

Fri, 28 Aug 2015 12:15:45 -0700

Boston Red Sox 1B Travis Shaw is not in the starting lineup Friday, Aug. 28. 1B David Ortiz is playing first base and batting fourth against New York Mets SP Matt Harvey Friday.

Fantasy Tip: Without the option to utilize a designated hitter, Ortiz ($5,100, 10.2% of cap) is playing first base. The veteran has 14 runs, six home runs and 18 RBI with a .325/.414/.625 slash line through 22 games and August. He is a viable option at FantasyScore Friday, but Harvey ($9,400, 18.6% of cap) presents a tough matchup. Shaw ($4,600, 9.2% of cap) has been great for Boston and fantasy owners this month. He is worth owning in the majority of seasonal leagues at this point. And while he is slowing down of late, he does have seven home runs in August.

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.

Fantasy Tip: Ortiz ($5,100, 10.2% of cap) continues to enjoy a strong month, and he is hitting .377 with six home runs and 17 RBI in August. Feel free to pay up for Ortiz at FantasyScore as he enjoys his best stretch of the year.

Red Sox | David Ortiz launches a pair

Wed, 12 Aug 2015 16:40:17 -0700

Boston Red Sox 1B David Ortiz went 3-for-3 with two runs, two home runs, three RBI and a walk during the Red Sox's 14-6 loss to the Miami Marlins Wednesday, Aug. 12.

Fantasy Tip: Ortiz ($5,100, 10.2% of cap) is in the midst of his 14th consecutive 20-home run season, and while the 39-year-old slugger and the Red Sox are having a tough year, Ortiz has been much better of late. Over his past 25 games, he has 19 runs, 10 home runs and 25 RBI. While hitting well, Ortiz stands as a nice FantasyScore option in favorable matchups.

Red Sox | David Ortiz loves Motor City

Fri, 07 Aug 2015 21:28:18 -0700

Boston Red Sox 1B David Ortiz went 1-for-4 with a two-run home run and a walk in a 7-2 win over the Detroit Tigers Friday, Aug. 7, and his 20 home runs at Comerica Park are the most by any visiting player.

Fantasy Tip: Ortiz ($5,100, 10.2% of cap) is hitting a disappointing .241 this year, but he still has plenty of power upside. He averages a homer almost every 10 at-bats at Comerica Park, so you may want to stick with him at FantasyScore throughout the weekend as the series continues.

Red Sox | Big Papi homers again

Mon, 27 Jul 2015 22:32:38 -0700

Boston Red Sox DH David Ortiz homered Monday, July 27, against the Chicago White Sox, finishing with two RBIs in five at-bats. Ortiz has 13 straight seasons with 20 or more home runs. The only other American League player to do it more was Babe Ruth, who had 15 with the New York Yankees from 1920-34.

Fantasy Tip: Ortiz ($5,100, 10.2% of cap) has posted three home runs and nine RBIs over the past two games. Ride him in FantasyScore until he starts to slow down.

Red Sox | David Ortiz with monster game

Sun, 26 Jul 2015 22:01:36 -0700

Boston Red Sox 1B David Ortiz went 4-for-5 with two home runs and seven RBI Sunday, July 26.

Fantasy Tip: Big Papi ($4,600, 9.2% of cap) has a .303-6-18 line in 66 July at-bats and is well worth the midrange price on FantasyScore.

Red Sox | David Ortiz back in lineup

Sat, 25 Jul 2015 11:09:28 -0700

Boston Red Sox DH David Ortiz is back in the starting lineup against Detroit Tigers SP Alfredo Simon Saturday, July 25, batting cleanup. OF Hanley Ramirez, who served as the designated hitter Friday, July 24, will return to left field and bat fifth.

Fantasy Tip: Ortiz ($4,600, 9.2% of cap) is only batting .196 during day games and is 1-for-6 versus Simon in his career but has started hitting better this month, with four home runs and 11 RBIs through 58 July at-bats. That being said, better FantasyScore options should be available.

Red Sox | David Ortiz out of the lineup

Fri, 24 Jul 2015 13:39:10 -0700

Boston Red Sox 1B David Ortiz is not in the starting lineup against Detroit Tigers SP Justin Verlander Friday, July 24. OF Hanley Ramirez will serve as the designated hitter and is batting fifth.

Fantasy Tip: Ortiz ($4,600, 9.2% of cap) likely will return to the lineup in the next game or two. Ramirez ($5,400, 10.8% of cap) is hitting only .185 this month and may not be the best option for owners on FantasyScore.
