From -- thru  --


Red Sox | Travis Shaw, Brock Holt out

Sat, 16 Jul 2016 09:24:14 -0700

Boston Red Sox 3B Travis Shaw and OF Brock Holt are not in the starting lineup against New York Yankees SP CC Sabathia Saturday, July 16. 3B Aaron Hill will start at third base and is batting seventh. OF Bryce Brentz will start in left field and is batting eighth.

Fantasy Tip: Hill has at least one hit in six of his last seven games and six RBI during that span. He should be an attractive option for owners in daily fantasy leagues. He is hitting .294 with four RBI this month and could also be used in daily leagues.

Red Sox | Hanley Ramirez, Brock Holt out Saturday

Sat, 09 Jul 2016 12:21:38 -0700

Boston Red Sox 1B Hanley Ramirez and OF Brock Holt (knee) are not in the starting lineup against Tampa Bay Rays SP Matt Moore Saturday, July 9. INF Travis Shaw will bat sixth and play first base and OF Bryce Brentz will bat seventh and start in left field. In addition, INF Aaron Hill is starting at the hot corner for the second consecutive game and C Sandy Leon is making his fifth start behind the plate in the last six games.

Fantasy Tip: Shaw is batting .350 with four doubles, a home run and four RBI through 20 at-bats this month and is 5-for-10 in his career versus Moore with a double, home run and three RBI. Brentz is batting .375 with a home run and seven RBI through 32 at-bats and is 5-for-10 at the plate over the past week. Both players should be viewed as value plays in daily fantasy games.

Red Sox | Solid debut for Aaron Hill

Fri, 08 Jul 2016 20:43:00 -0700

Boston Red Sox 2B Aaron Hill went 2-for-4 with two RBI in his team debut Friday, July 8, against the Tampa Bay Rays.

Fantasy Tip: Hill still has some pop in his bat for a middle infielder, and he is worth a look in DFS formats when the matchups are favorable.

Red Sox | John Farrell discusses playing time

Fri, 08 Jul 2016 13:51:31 -0700

Boston Red Sox 3Bs Travis Shaw and Aaron Hill will not be in a strict platoon, and Shaw could spell 1B Hanley Ramirez at first base on occasion, according to manager John Farrell.

Fantasy Tip: This should help ease some of the potential losses in playing time for Shaw, and given Ramirez's health track record, the odd game off shouldn't be viewed too negatively, either. Hill projects to grab a couple starts a week, and he's nothing more than a cavernous mixed and AL-only option. The other two are worth owning in the majority of seasonal leagues.

Red Sox | Aaron Hill debuting with Sox vs. Tampa

Fri, 08 Jul 2016 12:08:48 -0700

Boston Red Sox 3B Aaron Hill is starting at third base and batting eighth against Tampa Bay Rays SP Chris Archer Friday, July 8. 3B Travis Shaw (foot) is not in the starting lineup Friday.

Fantasy Tip: Hill projects to face left-handed pitchers in a platoon with Shaw at third base, so the upside of each hitter is capped slightly because of the expected timeshare. Hill should be owned in cavernous mixed and AL-only leagues, but he's likely best viewed as a daily option in favorable matchups.

Red Sox | Aaron Hill to platoon at hot corner?

Thu, 07 Jul 2016 17:50:47 -0700

Boston Red Sox general manager Dave Dombrowski hinted that INF Aaron Hill could see playing time at third base versus left-handed pitching, due to 3B Travis Shaw's struggles against southpaws.

Fantasy Tip: Shaw is batting .274 overall through 83 games but he is hitting just .211 against lefties this year. Hill has also fared better versus righties this season but he has a respectable .263 average off southpaws. He should be rostered in all AL-only fantasy leagues, although he's unlikely to see as much playing time as he received in Milwaukee.

Red Sox | Aaron Hill acquired by BoSox

Thu, 07 Jul 2016 15:31:54 -0700

The Boston Red Sox acquired 3B Aaron Hill from the Milwaukee Brewers Thursday, July 7, in exchange for P Aaron Wilkerson and INF Wendell Rijo.

Fantasy Tip: Hill loses a lot of fantasy luster in mixed leagues with the move to Boston, since he's unlikely to play every day in Beantown with Travis Shaw playing well at the hot corner. He'll be a popular waiver pickup in AL leagues, though, at least for infield depth. In Milwaukee, Will Middlebrooks and Hernan Perez could split time at the hot corner, with Perez being more attractive because of his speed. There's a chance the Brewers could decide to call up prized shortstop prospect Orlando Arcia in the second half, too.

Brewers | Aaron Hill has a field day vs. Nationals

Tue, 05 Jul 2016 21:03:26 -0700

Milwaukee Brewers 3B Aaron Hill finished a triple short of the cycle against the Washington Nationals on Tuesday, July 05, going 3-for-4 with a double, RBI single and two-run homer.

Fantasy Tip: Hill has been swinging a fairly hot stick since the middle of June, batting .355 with at least one hit in 14 of the 16 games he has played in that time. It is worth noting six of his eight homers and 12 of his 29 RBI have come in three games, so he's far too inconsistent to use in fantasy leagues despite his second- and third-base eligibility in most leagues.

Brewers | Aaron Hill receives day off

Sat, 02 Jul 2016 09:24:20 -0700

Milwaukee Brewers 3B Aaron Hill is not in the starting lineup against St. Louis Cardinals SP Adam Wainwright Saturday, July 2. 3B Hernan Perez will start at third base and is batting seventh.

Fantasy Tip: Perez has struggled recently with two hits in his last 13 at-bats. He has only five hits in his last 14 games and is not a great option for most fantasy owners.
