Red Sox | Will Middlebrooks set to return Friday

Thu, 24 Apr 2014 14:59:48 -0700

Boston Red Sox 3B Will Middlebrooks (calf) went 0-for-4 for Triple-A Pawtucket in a rehab game Thursday, April 24, and he's expected to be activated from the disabled list Friday, April 25.

Fantasy Tip: Middlebrooks will immediately return to starting base duties. Brock Holt, who has been filling in at the hot corner, is a likely candidate to be sent back to the minors.

Red Sox | Grady Sizemore, Jonny Gomes could platoon

Thu, 24 Apr 2014 13:37:52 -0700

Boston Red Sox manager John Farrell said he can envision a platoon between OFs Grady Sizemore and Jonny Gomes in left field.

Fantasy Tip: This shouldn't come as a surprise. Sizemore has cooled off since an initial hot start, and the Red Sox would like to keep the oft-injured Sizemore fresh through the long haul. It'll drop his value significantly in mixed leagues .

Red Sox | Shane Victorino activated

Thu, 24 Apr 2014 09:00:56 -0700

The Boston Red Sox activated OF Shane Victorino (hamstring) from the 15-day disabled list Thursday, April 24.

Fantasy Tip: Get Victorino back into your starting lineups. Grady Sizemore's playing time could be affected the most by Victorino's return, but he should at least be a semi-regular part of the lineup.

Red Sox | Prefer Grady Sizemore as corner OF

Wed, 23 Apr 2014 13:51:14 -0700

Boston Red Sox manager John Farrell said the club views OF Grady Sizemore as a better fit for a corner outfield spot than in center field. Sizemore, however, isn't as comfortable in left or right field as he is in center yet.

Fantasy Tip: Jackie Bradley Jr. is a much better option in terms of defense and range. Sizemore's brittle past and more advanced age play into this thinking; there's a chance this may affect Sizemore's PT as the year goes on, but even after Shane Victorino (hamstring) returns, he'll remain at least a semi-regular part of this lineup, especially following Daniel Nava's demotion.

Red Sox | Outfielders struggling

Wed, 23 Apr 2014 11:00:40 -0700

Boston Red Sox OF Grady Sizemore is hitless in his last 13 at-bats to drop his average to .213. He has just one extra-base hit in his last 11 games, in which he's hitting .128 (5-for-39). OF Jackie Bradley Jr. is hitting .229 and has struck out once every three at-bats this year. OF Jonny Gomes is hitting .213 and has 19 strikeouts in 47 at-bats. OF Mike Carp is hitting .250 in 24 at-bats.

Fantasy Tip: With Shane Victorino (hamstring) set to return this week, expect John Farrell to use the extra body as a way to mix and match his outfielders in order to give them some rest. Bradley and Sizemore figure to remain as regulars, but their playing time may fluctuate more frequently when Victorino is back.

Red Sox | Alex Wilson coming up, Daniel Nava demoted

Wed, 23 Apr 2014 09:54:27 -0700

The Boston Red Sox are recalled RP Alex Wilson from Triple-A Pawtucket Wednesday, April 23, and OF Daniel Nava will be optioned in a corresponding move.

Red Sox | Shane Victorino may be delayed

Wed, 23 Apr 2014 08:39:49 -0700

Boston Red Sox OF Shane Victorino (hamstring) may not be activated Wednesday, April 23, because the team's bullpen is taxed and they may need another arm, according to manager John Farrell. SP Jon Lester went only 4 2/3 innings Tuesday, April 22, a day after SP Clay Buchholz lasted only 2 1/3 innings. Victorino is 1-for-11 in three games with Triple-A Pawtucket.

Fantasy Tip: The latest Victorino would be activated would probably be later this week or this weekend. Be ready to activate him and get him back into your starting lineup when he returns to Boston.

Red Sox | Will Middlebrooks could return this weekend

Tue, 22 Apr 2014 15:29:13 -0700

Boston Red Sox 3B Will Middlebrooks (calf) will play for Triple-A Pawtucket Wednesday, April 23, and Thursday, April 24, before possibly being activated from the disabled list this weekend. Middlebrooks went 0-for-3 with two strikeouts in his first rehab game Monday, April 21.

Fantasy Tip: Middlebrooks will immediately return as the starting third baseman. Brock Holt is expected to be sent back to the minors when Middlebrooks returns.

Red Sox | Daniel Nava's spot in danger

Tue, 22 Apr 2014 14:34:08 -0700

Boston Red Sox OF Daniel Nava's roster spot could be in danger with OF Shane Victorino (hamstring) expected to return from the disabled list Wednesday, April 23. Nava is sitting against a right-handed pitcher Tuesday, April 22, and it's the second time in the last four games he's been on the bench. Nava is 10-for-67 (.149) with a .240 on-base percentage this year, and he's walked only six times in 75 plate appearances.

Fantasy Tip: Regardless of if he's optioned to the minors, Nava has lost much of his appeal already in mixed leagues because of his slow start.

Red Sox | Shane Victorino to be activated Wednesday

Tue, 22 Apr 2014 13:48:59 -0700

Boston Red Sox manager John Farrell said OF Shane Victorino (hamstring) will be activated from the disabled list Wednesday, April 23.

Fantasy Tip: It's unclear what the outfield alignment will be on a day-to-day basis when Victorino returns, but Grady Sizemore and Jackie Bradley Jr. could see less consistent at-bats, as well as Daniel Nava and Jonny Gomes. Bradley could also be sent down, since he has minor league options remaining.

Red Sox | Clay Buchholz's velocity down

Mon, 21 Apr 2014 16:30:03 -0700

Boston Red Sox SP Clay Buchholz's velocity has been down early in the season, but Buchholz feels that his arm strength is getting there. "Not quite there. It feels like it's getting better," said Buchholz, who now sits at 0-2 with a 7.71 ERA. "Later in the last two games I felt if I wanted to reach back, 92-93 (mph) was there, but that usually comes pretty easy. Struggling with that a little bit now. It'll come together. Still got a lot of time left in this first half to put it all together and go from there." Both Buchholz and manager John Farrell are insisting that he is healthy. Buchholz allowed six runs and seven hits in just 2 1/3 innings against the Baltimore Orioles Monday, April 21.
