Red Sox | Christian Vazquez in danger?

Sun, 26 Jun 2016 04:45:30 -0700

Boston Red Sox C Christian Vazquez could be in danger of losing his roster spot with C Ryan Hanigan (neck) nearing a return and C Sandy Leon swinging a bat well.

Fantasy Tip: The Red Sox have a glut at catcher when you also factor in Blake Swihart, although Swihart is getting more outfield work to make up for that. You may want to see which direction Boston goes at catcher before putting down a player for a daily or regular roster spot. Right now the situation is too fluid.

Red Sox | Big Papi's hit streak snapped

Sat, 25 Jun 2016 22:56:40 -0700

Boston Red Sox DH David Ortiz was hitless in three at-bats with a walk Saturday, June 25, against the Texas Rangers to snap his 10-game hitting streak. His run was the longest active streak in the majors.

Fantasy Tip: While Big Papi had a 10-game hitting streak, he hasn't had a multi-hit game since June 16, a span of nine games. He has cooled off a bit, but remains an obvious must-start in all fantasy leagues.

Red Sox | Steven Wright gets knocked around

Sat, 25 Jun 2016 22:56:11 -0700

Boston Red Sox SP Steven Wright allowed eight runs - three earned - and seven hits with two walks and four strikeouts over 4 2/3 innings in a loss Saturday, June 25, against the Texas Rangers. His ERA inched up from 2.01 to 2.18 after the ugly outing, his shortest since May 13.

Fantasy Tip: Wright had managed to last at least 7 1/3 innings over his past three starts, and he had allowed just three earned runs in 28 2/3 innings in four June starts before this outing. He remains a must-start across all fantasy leagues despite the shaky outing.

Red Sox | David Price hit hard by Rangers

Fri, 24 Jun 2016 22:35:17 -0700

Boston Red Sox SP David Price gave up six runs on 12 hits in just 2 1/3 innings against the Texas Rangers on Friday, June 24.

Fantasy Tip: After eight consecutive quality starts, Price just didn't have it on Friday night, struggling from the get go in Texas. It's a setback for Price, whose ERA had dropped to 4.24 from 6.75 during the preceding eight-game stretch, but for now we'll chalk it up as an anomaly. Make sure Price is active for his next start.

Red Sox | Brock Holt could return next week

Fri, 24 Jun 2016 18:08:30 -0700

Boston Red Sox INF/OF Brock Holt (concussion) will remain with Class AAA Pawtucket on a rehab assignment through the weekend. In a best-case scenario, he could be activated from the disabled list during next week's series versus the Tampa Bay Rays.

Fantasy Tip: With OFs Blake Swihart and Chris Young both on the disabled list, OF Bryce Brentz will likely see most of the playing time in left field for the BoSox until Holt returns. OF Ryan LaMarre could also see action at the position, although he is not a recommended option in any fantasy format.

Red Sox | Bryce Brentz recalled from Pawtucket

Fri, 24 Jun 2016 13:19:26 -0700

Boston Red Sox OF Bryce Brentz was recalled from Class AAA Pawtucket Friday, June 24. He is starting in left field and batting seventh against Texas Rangers SP Nick Martinez Friday.

Fantasy Tip: Brentz could see a fleeting opportunity with the rash of injuries in the Boston outfield. He posted a respectable .278/.307/.438 slash line through 150 plate appearances with Pawtucket, but his fantasy value is limited to cavernous mixed and AL-only leagues at this point.

Red Sox | Rick Porcello takes no-decision

Thu, 23 Jun 2016 18:53:50 -0700

Boston Red Sox SP Rick Porcello received a no-decision in his start Thursday, June 23, against the Chicago White Sox. The right-hander went 5 1/3 innings, allowing four runs on eight hits and one walk. He also struck out two.

Fantasy Tip: Not the sharpest of outings from the 27-year-old, but he can be excused for this one considering how well he had pitched entering this afternoon's assignment. Porcello had strung together three quality starts prior to this performance, so hopefully he's able to get back on track his next time out. Overall, he's been terrific for fantasy owners this year, being 8-2 with a 3.93 ERA.

Red Sox | Chris Young placed on disabled list

Thu, 23 Jun 2016 15:50:14 -0700

Updating a previous report, Boston Red Sox OF Chris Young (hamstring) has been put on the disabled list Thursday, June 23. No corresponding move has been announced yet.

Fantasy Tip: Young had to leave Thursday's game early after injuring his right hamstring, which is unfortunate for him, as he was receiving regular at-bats with the Red Sox. Ryan LaMarre replaced him in the ballgame and could end up getting a considerable boost as a result of the injury. Another name to look out for is Rusney Castillo.

Red Sox | Chris Young exits with injury

Thu, 23 Jun 2016 11:37:31 -0700

Boston Red Sox OF Chris Young (hamstring) left the game Thursday, June 23, with an apparent right hamstring injury. OF Ryan LaMarre replaced him.

Fantasy Tip: Young had to be helped off the field, but it's premature to speculate how serious the injury is. LaMarre has minimal DFS appeal if he receives extra playing time.

Red Sox | Travis Shaw out of the lineup

Thu, 23 Jun 2016 07:14:47 -0700

Boston Red Sox 3B Travis Shaw (shin, ankle) is out of the lineup Thursday, June 23, with 3B Marco Hernandez hitting ninth.

Fantasy Tip: Hernandez is hitting .227 with a homer in 22 at-bats on the season. He's a weak flyer against James Shields today.

Red Sox | Eduardo Rodriguez solid in no-decision

Wed, 22 Jun 2016 22:59:51 -0700

Boston Red Sox SP Eduardo Rodriguez allowed four runs -- three earned -- on four hits in six innings against the Chicago White Sox on Wednesday, June 22. The lefty walked two and fanned a season-best seven.

Fantasy Tip: This was easily Rodriguez's best start of June, and had Koji Uehara not melted down in the eighth, Rodriguez would've evened his record at 2-2. He's definitely worth stashing in AL-only and deeper mixed leagues, and with a start against the Rays on tap, optimists might want to slot him into their active lineup this Monday.

Red Sox | David Ortiz tallies 60th RBI

Wed, 22 Jun 2016 22:54:53 -0700

Boston Red Sox DH David Ortiz went 1-for-3 with an RBI against the Chicago White Sox on Wednesday, June 22.

Fantasy Tip: Ortiz is just the third player in baseball to reach the 60-RBI mark -- Edwin Encarnacion (62) and Nolan Arenado (60) are the others -- and the 40-year-old simply continues to make life miserable for opposing hurlers. As long as the BoSox are in an AL city, Ortiz needs to be in your lineup.

Red Sox | Xander Bogaerts posts three hits, three RBI

Wed, 22 Jun 2016 22:42:03 -0700

Boston Red Sox SS Xander Bogaerts went 3-for-5 with a run scored and three RBI against the Chicago White Sox on Wednesday, June 22.

Fantasy Tip: Bogaerts had actually been struggling of late (7-for-29, two RBI in the eight games prior to tonight), but with his three-hit performance he's back atop the majors in average (.351). Needless to say, keep him in your daily lineup.

Red Sox | Boston inquires about big-name starters

Wed, 22 Jun 2016 19:02:55 -0700

The Boston Red Sox have reached out to the Pittsburgh Pirates and Miami Marlins regarding the availability of SPs Gerrit Cole and Jose Fernandez, respectively, according to multiple baseball sources.

Fantasy Tip: No deal appears imminent for either hurler and it's likely that the Red Sox were just doing their due diligence to see what it would take to land a big-name starter. At the very least, a potential deal would likely involve SS Xander Bogaerts and/or OF Mookie Betts. When healthy, both Fernandez and Cole should be viewed as fantasy aces in seasonal leagues and must-start options in daily contests.

Red Sox | Travis Shaw leaves with shin injury

Wed, 22 Jun 2016 17:45:03 -0700

Boston Red Sox 3B Travis Shaw (shin, ankle) left the game against the Chicago White Sox Wednesday, June 22, because of a right shin contusion. The injury is related to the one he suffered Tuesday, June 21, when he fouled a ball off his right ankle bone. Shaw was replaced in Wednesday's game by 3B Deven Marrero.

Fantasy Tip: The severity of Shaw's injury is unknown, so keep checking back for updates on his condition. Marrero is likely to see the bulk of the playing time at the hot corner if Shaw is forced to miss extended playing time but he is a defensive-minded player who is not a great fantasy option.
