Red Sox | Rick Porcello lasts just two innings

Wed, 01 Jul 2015 16:30:35 -0700

Boston Red Sox SP Rick Porcello allowed seven runs on seven hits, including three home runs, during Boston's 11-2 loss to the Toronto Blue Jays Wednesday, July 1.

Fantasy Tip: Porcello ($3,900, 7.8% of cap) has four wins with a 6.08 ERA and a 1.40 WHIP. He cannot be started with confidence in any fantasy format and checks out as a desperation start at this point. In the majority of leagues, Porcello is replaceable.

Red Sox | Brock Holt has cooled off

Wed, 01 Jul 2015 10:28:55 -0700

Boston Red Sox OF Brock Holt, who is taking the day off Wednesday, July 1, has just four hits in his last 32 at-bats (.125). He had played every inning of every game since June 5 and also collided with Toronto Blue Jays 2B Devon Travis Tuesday, June 30.

Fantasy Tip: Holt ($4,000, 8.0% of cap) is still hitting .288 (59-for-205) despite his recent cold stretch, and he'll continue to see consistent playing time as long as Dustin Pedroia is on the DL. He'll continue to have short-term value in most fantasy formats, including on FantasyScore.

Red Sox | Koji Uehara may be rested

Wed, 01 Jul 2015 10:26:42 -0700

Boston Red Sox RP Koji Uehara has appeared in three straight games, and the Red Sox would prefer to give him the day off Wednesday, July 1. He hasn't worked on four straight days all year. "I'm not going to say he's not available but at the same time we'd like to do everything we can to stay away," manager John Farrell said.

Fantasy Tip: Alexi Ogando is unavailable, too, so if a save situation arises Wednesday afternoon, expect the chance to go to Junichi Tazawa. Tazawa has fine peripherals to go along with a 2.62 ERA and 0.99 WHIP in 2015. He's definitely a reliever worth owning in deeper leagues to help your pitching stats.

Red Sox | David Ortiz defying his critics

Wed, 01 Jul 2015 09:35:21 -0700

Boston Red Sox 1B David Ortiz has hit seven home runs in his last 19 games and has 13 on the season. Ortiz continues to deny that he has lost bat speed as he ages. "I don't know why people go there," Ortiz said. "Why don't they throw me 96 mph right down (the middle). Tell all the pitchers to throw me fastballs 96 right down the (middle). See if I lost bat speed."

Fantasy Tip: Ortiz ($4,200, 8.4% of cap) is only hitting .228 (60-for-263) on the season, though, despite his 13 long balls and 36 RBI. More concerning are his struggles against lefties in 2015 (.114/.122/.152 in 79 at-bats). He's a big time risk/reward play today on FantasyScore against Toronto Blue Jays starter Mark Buehrle. Papi is 26-for-83 (.313) in his career against the left-hander with six home runs and 24 RBI.

Red Sox | No Blake Swihart Wednesday

Wed, 01 Jul 2015 09:21:25 -0700

Boston Red Sox C Blake Swihart is not in the starting lineup Wednesday, July 1. C Sandy Leon is starting and hitting ninth against Toronto Blue Jays SP Mark Buehrle.

Fantasy Tip: Leon ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) should be avoided on FantasyScore today. He's hitting just .152 (12-for-79) with no home runs and three RBI in a backup role for Boston.

Red Sox | Dustin Pedroia progressing

Wed, 01 Jul 2015 08:23:23 -0700

Boston Red Sox 2B Dustin Pedroia (hamstring) is hopeful to take batting practice Thursday, July 2.

Fantasy Tip: Pedroia could return in time for the July 10-12 series against the New York Yankees, or the team could hold him out until after the All-Star break. Keep him stashed on your DL in the meantime.

Red Sox | Brock Holt sitting out

Wed, 01 Jul 2015 07:26:37 -0700

Boston Red Sox 2B Brock Holt is out of the lineup Wednesday, July 1, against a left-hander. 2B Deven Marrero is hitting eighth.

Fantasy Tip: Marrero ($2,500, 5.0% of cap) went 0-for-3 with two K's in his only appearance this year. Give him some time to show what he can do before using him on FantasyScore.

Red Sox | Hanley Ramirez returns

Wed, 01 Jul 2015 07:25:54 -0700

Boston Red Sox OF Hanley Ramirez (hand) returned to the lineup Wednesday, July 1, hitting cleanup.

Fantasy Tip: HanRam ($5,600, 11.2% of cap) has been out of the lineup for a week and is just 2-for-9 against Mark Buehrle in his career. Give him a day or two to find his stroke before dropping that much on FantasyScore for him.

Red Sox | Rick Porcello looks to recover

Tue, 30 Jun 2015 20:20:24 -0700

Boston Red Sox SP Rick Porcello is scheduled to start Wednesday, July 1, against the Toronto Blue Jays. He enters winless since May 16 and he has lost six straight decisions. However, he beat the Blue Jays in his only appearance this season, allowing just one run over seven innings April 29 in Toronto.

Fantasy Tip: Porcello ($3,900; or 7.8% of cap) is hard to trust given his poor run lately, but his appearance against the Blue Jays earlier might make him a decent mid-level play in FantasyScore.

Red Sox | Hanley Ramirez could return Wednesday

Tue, 30 Jun 2015 14:08:08 -0700

Boston Red Sox OF Hanley Ramirez (wrist) will take batting practice on the field Tuesday, June 30, and there's a good chance he'll return to the lineup Wednesday, July 1.

Fantasy Tip: Ramirez ($5,600, 11.2% of cap) looks like he'll avoid the DL, so his owners can breathe easy. You may want to give him a day or two back in the lineup before running with him on FantasyScore, though.

Red Sox | Shane Victorino set for platoon?

Tue, 30 Jun 2015 14:01:45 -0700

Boston Red Sox OF Shane Victorino (calf) is expected to be involved in a platoon in right field with OF Alejandro De Aza when he returns. Victorino could return by the weekend.

Fantasy Tip: Victorino ($2,500, 5.0% of cap) would only be attractive to those in deep mixed and AL leagues if he's only starting against left-handed pitchers. Even then he won't retain much fantasy value, as he was only hitting .156 (5-for-32) against lefties before his injury. De Aza ($2,900, 5.8% of cap) should be targeted in AL leagues if he's not owned.

Red Sox | Hanley Ramirez remains out

Tue, 30 Jun 2015 13:13:27 -0700

Boston Red Sox OF Hanley Ramirez (wrist) remains out of the lineup Tuesday, June 30. OF Alejandro De Aza is starting in left field and hitting seventh against Toronto Blue Jays SP Marco Estrada.

Fantasy Tip: Ramirez could return any day now, so keep an eye out. De Aza ($2,900, 5.8% of cap) has been an excellent value play in Ramirez's absence, and he's riding a five-game hitting streak in which he has nine knocks (three home runs) and six RBI. He's more of a risk against Estrada, though, as he's taken no-hit bids deep into his last two outings.

Red Sox | Ryan Hanigan expects back shortly

Mon, 29 Jun 2015 20:18:14 -0700

Boston Red Sox C Ryan Hanigan (hand) is expected to come off the 60-day disabled list when eligible Wednesday, July 1.

Fantasy Tip: Hanigan is likely to see sporadic at-bats when he returns and he is only worth using in FantasyScore as a salary saver.

Red Sox | Dustin Pedroia to take BP soon

Mon, 29 Jun 2015 20:17:44 -0700

Boston Red Sox 2B Dustin Pedroia (hamstring) is expected to take batting practice sometime during the series in Toronto.

Fantasy Tip: Pedroia ($4,800; or 9.6% of cap) should be avoided in FantasyScore until he can officially return and prove his health in at least one full game without any setbacks.

Red Sox | Clay Buchholz wins third straight

Mon, 29 Jun 2015 20:17:14 -0700

Boston Red Sox SP Clay Buchholz allowed one run, five hits and no walks over eight innings in a win Monday, June 29, against the Toronto Blue Jays to win his third consecutive start. He is now 10-3 with a 2.21 ERA in 15 career starts against the Jays.

Fantasy Tip: Buchholz ($6,500; or 13.0% of cap) is 3-0 with a 0.82 ERA and 15 strikeouts in 22 innings over his past three starts. Needless to say, he has re-emerged as a must-start FantasyScore option until he cools off.
