Red Sox | Relief win for Clay Buchholz

Sun, 29 May 2016 16:27:51 -0700

Boston Red Sox SP Clay Buchholz picked up his first win in relief since 2008, allowing one hit and striking out one in a scoreless inning against the Toronto Blue Jays Sunday, May 29.

Fantasy Tip: Buchholz will be coming out of the bullpen for the foreseeable future with Eduardo Rodriguez set to return to the rotation. You can probably cut Buchholz loose in all formats for now.

Red Sox | Koji Uehara picks up save

Sun, 29 May 2016 16:23:04 -0700

Boston Red Sox RP Koji Uehara picked up his first save of the season Sunday, May 29, striking out two in a perfect inning against the Toronto Blue Jays.

Fantasy Tip: Craig Kimbrell threw 39 pitches and blew the save the day before, so it wasn't a surprise to see Uehara close things out. The pitch count likely dictated the decision, and Kimbrell's job isn't in jeopardy.

Red Sox | David Ortiz scratched

Sun, 29 May 2016 10:11:11 -0700

Boston Red Sox 1B David Ortiz (foot) was scratched from the starting lineup Sunday, May 29, because of a possible foot injury. 1B Hanley Ramirez is serving as the designated hitter. 3B Travis Shaw is starting at first base, while 2B Josh Rutledge is starting at third base and is batting seventh.

Fantasy Tip: Owners will need to keep an eye on the situation to see if Ortiz will need to miss multiple games. Rutledge has only two hits in his last five games and should be avoided in fantasy leagues.

Red Sox | Blake Swihart returns to lineup Sunday

Sun, 29 May 2016 07:22:28 -0700

Boston Red Sox C/OF Blake Swihart is back in the starting lineup against Toronto Blue Jays SP R.A. Dickey Sunday, May 29, batting ninth and playing left field.

Fantasy Tip: Swihart is just 3-for-19 (.158) since taking over as Boston's everyday left fielder and is batting .171 versus right-handed pitching this season, so he should be avoided in all formats Sunday. However, gaining outfield eligibility will give him an added layer of value in AL-only fantasy leagues.

Red Sox | Xander Bogaerts on 21-game hit streak

Sat, 28 May 2016 14:42:21 -0700

Boston Red Sox SS Xander Bogaerts stuffed the box score in a loss to the Toronto Blue Jays on Saturday, May 28, going 3-for-5 with a solo home run and three runs scored. Bogaerts' 21-game hitting streak is the longest active run in the majors at the moment.

Fantasy Tip: Bogaerts has registered multiple hits 12 times during the streak, so he's certainly doing more than just getting by. Among a tightly knit group of highly productive shortstops so far this season, the case could certainly be made that Bogaerts has been the best with a .351 average, six homers, 27 RBI, 41 runs and seven steals. If it wasn't already obvious, he's a must-start whenever he takes the field.

Red Sox | Blake Swihart not starting

Sat, 28 May 2016 07:40:46 -0700

Boston Red Sox OF Blake Swihart is not in the starting lineup against Toronto Blue Jays SP Marcus Stroman Saturday, May 28. OF Chris Young will start in left field and is batting eighth in the lineup.

Fantasy Tip: Young is hitting .323 with one home run and five RBI in limited playing time this month. Young should have some value in daily fantasy leagues because of his recent production.

Red Sox | Joe Kelly knocked around

Fri, 27 May 2016 19:22:50 -0700

Boston Red Sox SP Joe Kelly allowed five earned runs on nine hits while walking three and striking out eight over 4 2/3 innings in a no-decision against the Toronto Blue Jays Friday, May 27.

Fantasy Tip: Consistency has always been an issue for Kelly, and he should be reserved for friendly matchups in daily formats.

Red Sox | Clay Buchholz heading to the 'pen

Fri, 27 May 2016 14:21:40 -0700

Boston Red Sox SP Clay Buchholz will pitch out of the bullpen when SP Eduardo Rodriguez (knee) returns from the disabled list Tuesday, May 31.

Fantasy Tip: It has been a disastrous 10-game stretch to start the season for Buchholz, as he sits with a 6.35 ERA. He was hardly worth owning in the majority of leagues to begin with, but he should be replaced in all formats now. Sometimes, starting pitchers adapt to the bullpen quickly and become high-end relievers, but you'll want to see it before counting on it with Buchholz.

Red Sox | David Ortiz takes a seat

Fri, 27 May 2016 13:24:35 -0700

Boston Red Sox 1B David Ortiz is not in the starting lineup Friday, May 27. 1B Hanley Ramirez is serving as the designated hitter, while 3B Travis Shaw moves over to first base and is batting cleanup against Toronto Blue Jays SP Aaron Sanchez. INF Marco Hernandez draws a start at the hot corner and is hitting seventh.

Fantasy Tip: It looks to be just a normal off day for Papi. Make sure to replace him in your daily lineups. Han-Ram and Shaw have been very consistent producers for Boston all year and should remain excellent plays. Hernandez is a true dart throw as a desperation flier in daily games tonight.

Blue Jays | Ezequiel Carrera leading off vs. Red Sox

Fri, 27 May 2016 13:05:01 -0700

Toronto Blue Jays OF Ezequiel Carrera is starting in right field and batting first against Boston Red Sox SP Joe Kelly Friday, May 27, with OF Jose Bautista out of the lineup serving a one-game suspension.

Fantasy Tip: Carrera has made the most of his opportunities this season going 16-for-48 with 12 runs and a .843 OPS. He doesn't see enough at-bats to be anything more than a depth piece in cavernous mixed and AL-only leagues, but he does check out as a viable low-priced flier in daily contests Friday.

Red Sox | Xander Bogaerts has longest hit streak

Fri, 27 May 2016 10:44:02 -0700

Boston Red Sox SS Xander Bogaerts now has the longest hitting streak in the major leagues at 19 games after teammate OF Jackie Bradley Jr.'s streak was snapped after 29 straight.

Fantasy Tip: The 23-year-old enjoyed a nice breakout campaign a year ago, and he's taken it a step further in 2016, as he currently holds a terrific .347/.401/.508 line through 46 ballgames. He also has almost as many home runs (five) as he did all of last season (seven). Keep firing him up if you were able to secure his services on draft day.

Red Sox | Clay Buchholz leaving rotation?

Thu, 26 May 2016 20:21:52 -0700

Boston Red Sox SP Clay Buchholz could be removed from the rotation based on comments from manager John Farrell, but no decision has been made or announced.

Fantasy Tip: Buchholz has struggled throughout the year, and even if he remains in the rotation, he isnít worth owning.

Red Sox | Jackie Bradley's hit streak ends

Thu, 26 May 2016 19:41:37 -0700

Boston Red Sox OF Jackie Bradley Jr. went hitless in four at-bats against the Colorado Rockies Thursday, May 26, to end his career-best hitting streak at 29 games. Bradley's streak was the longest in the majors this year and ended during his first game batting leadoff this season.

Fantasy Tip: Bradley is batting .341 with eight home runs and 34 RBI in 46 games and makes an excellent outfield option in all fantasy formats. The player who had the second-longest streak in the majors was teammate Xander Bogaerts, who went 1-for-4 with a run scored Thursday to extend his streak to 19 games.

Red Sox | Ryan Hanigan could play Friday

Thu, 26 May 2016 19:32:02 -0700

Boston Red Sox manager John Farrell said C Ryan Hanigan (illness, neck) should be available to play Friday, May 27, after leaving the game Wednesday, May 25, due to an illness and stiffness in his neck.

Fantasy Tip: Hanigan is just batting .193 with eight RBI through 57 at-bats in 2016. He has little value outside of AL-only and two-catcher fantasy leagues.

Red Sox | Clay Buchholz struggles again Thursday

Thu, 26 May 2016 19:14:22 -0700

Boston Red Sox SP Clay Buchholz (2-5) allowed six runs on seven hits over five innings in a loss to the Colorado Rockies Thursday, May 26, with no walks and two strikeouts.

Fantasy Tip: Buchholz has only recorded two quality starts in 10 outings this season and has posted a 6.73 ERA in five games during the month of May, so he should be avoided in all fantasy formats. His next scheduled outing will come against the Baltimore Orioles Tuesday, May 31.
