Red Sox | Ryan Hanigan scratched

Tue, 26 Jul 2016 15:34:02 -0700

Boston Red Sox C Ryan Hanigan (illness) has been scratched from the starting lineup Tuesday, July 26, because of flu-like symptoms. C Sandy Leon will start at catcher and is batting eighth.

Fantasy Tip: Leon is still having success at the plate this season and has recorded two home runs and 10 RBI this month. Leon should be a solid starting option in two-catcher leagues and some mixed leagues.

Red Sox | Sandy Leon continues to produce

Mon, 25 Jul 2016 21:23:38 -0700

Boston Red Sox C Sandy Leon went 2-for-4 with an RBI Monday, July 25, against the Detroit Tigers.

Fantasy Tip: Leon is starting fairly regularly, hitting .400 with an OPS well in excess of 1.000. He has emerged as a must-start in all AL-only fantasy leagues and deeper mixed formats, especially when he is facing left-handed pitching.

Red Sox | Mookie Betts hitless in return

Mon, 25 Jul 2016 21:21:48 -0700

Boston Red Sox OF Mookie Betts (knee) was hitless in five at-bats in his return to the lineup Monday, July 25, against the Detroit Tigers in his return to the lineup after missing two games due to a sore right knee.

Fantasy Tip: Despite the hitless performance it appears safe to get Betts back into the active fantasy lineup.

Red Sox | Drew Pomeranz loses to Detroit

Mon, 25 Jul 2016 21:21:16 -0700

Boston Red Sox SP Drew Pomeranz allowed two earned runs, four hits and two walks with seven strikeouts over six innings Monday, July 25, against the Detroit Tigers. He threw 64 of his 99 pitches for strikes.

Fantasy Tip: Pomeranz was much better in his second outing with the team after getting bounced around by San Francisco last time out. He'll get it going once he gets comfortable in Boston, and remains a must-start across all fantasy formats with his 2.84 ERA and 1.12 WHIP.

Red Sox | Craig Kimbrel closing in on return

Mon, 25 Jul 2016 13:42:11 -0700

Boston Red Sox RP Craig Kimbrel (knee) will throw a bullpen session Wednesday, July 27, and is lined up to make a rehab appearance Saturday, July 30. He could be activated from the disabled list after the rehab outing.

Fantasy Tip: Kimbrel hasn't been quite as dominant as in past seasons (3.55 ERA and just 17 saves), but he's still a must-own reliever with the upside to provide a top-tier return down the stretch. Continue to stash him in all fantasy settings and be ready to plug him back into your starting lineups once activated.

Red Sox | Mookie Betts had knee drained

Mon, 25 Jul 2016 13:39:49 -0700

Boston Red Sox OF Mookie Betts (knee) had fluid drained from his knee two days ago, which lead to diminished swelling and less pain. However, manager John Farrell said they "don't fully expect (the fluid) to vanish," which means Betts may need some more days off heading into a tough August schedule.

Fantasy Tip: It's a little concerning for Betts owners, but the fact that he's back in the starting lineup and hitting leadoff Monday should quell any concerns for now. After all, Betts has become one of the more valuable fantasy outfielders with his .307 average, 79 runs scored, 20 home runs, 63 RBI and 16 stolen bases. Get him back into all starting lineups.

Red Sox | Mookie Betts back in the leadoff spot

Mon, 25 Jul 2016 12:36:52 -0700

Boston Red Sox OF Mookie Betts (knee) is starting in right field and leading off against Detroit Tigers SP Justin Verlander Monday, July 25.

Fantasy Tip: Betts is a fantasy star and sits with 79 runs, 20 home runs, 63 RBI, 16 stolen bases and a .307/.345/.534 slash line. Confidently return him to your lineups in all fantasy settings, as he only missed two games with the minor injury.

Red Sox | Rick Porcello now 10-0 at home

Sun, 24 Jul 2016 17:22:48 -0700

Boston Red Sox SP Rick Porcello became the first pitcher in 55 years to start a season 10-0 at Fenway Park, allowing five runs, four earned, on six hits while walking one and striking out eight over 6 2/3 innings in a win over the Minnesota Twins Sunday, July 24.

Fantasy Tip: It wasn't his finest outing by any means, but Porcello continues to exceed expectations. He is a must-start player in season-long leagues and a viable option in daily formats when he pitches at home.

Red Sox | Hanley Ramirez hits another bomb

Sun, 24 Jul 2016 17:18:11 -0700

Boston Red Sox 1B Hanley Ramirez went 2-for-4 with a three-run home run and two runs scored in an 8-7 win over the Minnesota Twins Sunday, July 24, and he has five home runs in his last five games.

Fantasy Tip: His power has come and gone over the course of the year, but he has enjoyed a solid season at the plate overall. He should be starting in season-long leagues, and he is also an option in daily formats while his power stroke is working.

Red Sox | Mookie Betts' knee improving

Sun, 24 Jul 2016 17:12:49 -0700

Boston Red Sox OF Mookie Betts' (knee) knee is improving, and he could return to the lineup Monday, July 25, according to manager John Farrell.

Fantasy Tip: Check back to see if Betts does make his return, but as soon as he is back in the lineup, he should be back starting in all fantasy formats.

Red Sox | Joe Kelly promoted

Sun, 24 Jul 2016 09:12:10 -0700

The Boston Red Sox have recalled P Joe Kelly from Class AAA Pawtucket. In a corresponding move, RP Heath Hembree has been optioned to Pawtucket.

Fantasy Tip: Kelly went 2-0 with an 8.46 ERA in six starts earlier this season before being demoted but will serve as a reliever this time around, severely limiting any fantasy value he had left. Kelly tossed five scoreless innings of relief for Pawtucket over four outings, with one walk and nine strikeouts. Hembree posted a 2.41 ERA in 37 1/3 innings but had struggled mightily in his last three games and had allowed left-handed batters to hit .402 against him this year, with right-handed batters hitting just .198.

Red Sox | Mookie Betts, David Ortiz resting Sunday

Sun, 24 Jul 2016 07:39:04 -0700

Boston Red Sox OF Mookie Betts (knee) and DH David Ortiz are not in the starting lineup against Minnesota Twins SP Tommy Milone Sunday, July 24. 1B Hanley Ramirez will bat cleanup and serve as the designated hitter, with INF Travis Shaw batting seventh and playing first base and OF Bryce Brentz playing left field and batting eighth. In addition, C Ryan Hanigan will bat ninth and start behind the plate.

Fantasy Tip: Shaw is just 2-for-17 (.118) over the past seven days, while Hanigan is 2-for-12 (.167) during the month of July. Both players should be avoided in all fantasy formats. Brentz is batting .308 versus southpaws this season and is worthy of consideration as a value play in DFS.

Red Sox | Brock Holt leading off

Sat, 23 Jul 2016 13:49:16 -0700

Boston Red Sox OF Brock Holt is leading off Saturday, July 23, and 3B Travis Shaw is sitting out. 3B Aaron Hill is hitting seventh.

Fantasy Tip: Holt is hitting .333 this month, and he has a good matchup against Ricky Nolasco. Hill is hitting .306 this month, and both are solid low-end options.

Red Sox | Mookie Betts out again

Sat, 23 Jul 2016 13:30:03 -0700

Boston Red Sox OF Mookie Betts (knee) is out of the lineup Saturday, July 23, with OF Michael Martinez hitting ninth. Manager John Farrell said nothing is structurally wrong with Betts. He is day to day, but he could miss some time.

Fantasy Tip: Martinez isn't a potent enough bat to use in fantasy, even against Ricky Nolasco. Keep an eye on what the Red Sox opt to do in Betts' absence. Chris Marrero could come up, and he'd be a matchup play.
