Red Sox | Mookie Betts won't travel to NY

Sun, 02 Aug 2015 19:29:06 -0700

Boston Red Sox OF Mookie Betts (concussion) won't travel for the upcoming series against the New York Yankees, manager John Farrell said Sunday, Aug. 2.

Fantasy Tip: Jackie Bradley Jr. should continue to fill in for Betts, but he is hitting just .111 for the year and offers little fantasy value.

Red Sox | Henry Owens could get the call

Sun, 02 Aug 2015 09:04:51 -0700

Boston Red Sox P Henry Owens is currently scheduled to start for Class AAA Pawtucket Monday, Aug. 3, but he might be scratched and called up to start Tuesday, Aug. 4, for the Red Sox.

Fantasy Tip: It's purely speculation at this point, but the Red Sox will need a replacement starter after placing Rick Porcello on the disabled list. Owens will be worth an immediate pick up as soon as the decision is officially made.

Red Sox | Rick Porcello to the DL

Sun, 02 Aug 2015 09:03:42 -0700

Boston Red Sox SP Rick Porcello (triceps) was placed on the 15-day disabled list Sunday, Aug. 2. The Red Sox will announce a starter for Tuesday, Aug. 4, at a later time.

Fantasy Tip: Porcello ($3,900, 7.8% of cap) has been a giant disappointment for the Red Sox, and he can be dropped, if still owned. There is some early speculation that prospect Henry Owens could be called up to start Tuesday, but owners need to wait for an official decision.

Red Sox | Xander Bogaerts' hits coming in bunches

Sat, 01 Aug 2015 18:14:46 -0700

Boston Red Sox SS Xander Bogaerts went 4-for-5 with a double, three RBI and a steal in an 11-7 win over the Tampa Bay Ray Saturday, Aug. 1, and he has had three or more hits in four of his last nine games.

Fantasy Tip: Bogaerts ($4,400, 8.8% of cap) has been enjoying a solid season, and his average is up to .319. He offers solid production for the price at FantasyScore right now, and he deserves heavy consideration whenever he is facing a left-handed starter.

Red Sox | Travis Shaw with a game to remember

Sat, 01 Aug 2015 18:08:26 -0700

Boston Red Sox 1B Travis Shaw went 4-for-4 with two home runs, three RBI, five runs scored and a walk in an 11-7 win over the Tampa Bay Rays Saturday, Aug. 1.

Fantasy Tip: Shaw was only starting because of an injury to Pablo Sandoval, but he made the most of the opportunity. He only has 19 at-bats this season, but he may have earned himself some more playing time. If he continues to show some potential, keep an eye on his price tag when he is added to the player pool at FantasyScore.

Red Sox | Pablo Sandoval day-to-day

Sat, 01 Aug 2015 12:03:48 -0700

Boston Red Sox 3B Pablo Sandoval (forearm) is considered day-to-day due to an injured left forearm suffered when he was hit by a pitch from Chicago White Sox SP Chris Sale Thursday, July 30. Manager John Farrell said Sandoval was feeling well enough to swing a bat Saturday, Aug. 1, but he was still experiencing swelling and soreness

Fantasy Tip: Sandoval ($4,000, 8.0% of cap) has had a disappointing season, batting just .260 with eight home runs and 34 RBIs through 92 games. Avoid using him in FantasyScore until he shows signs of turning things around at the plate.

Red Sox | Ryan Hanigan receives start

Sat, 01 Aug 2015 08:44:22 -0700

Boston Red Sox C Ryan Hanigan will start at catcher against Tampa Bay Rays SP Matt Moore Saturday, Aug. 1, and is batting eighth in the lineup.

Fantasy Tip: Hanigan ($3,100, 6.2% of cap) has at least one hit in each of his last five games, but owners on FantasyScore should be able to find a better option to use.

Red Sox | Pablo Sandoval remains out

Sat, 01 Aug 2015 08:26:31 -0700

Boston Red Sox 3B Pablo Sandoval (forearm) is not in the starting lineup against Tampa Bay Rays SP Matt Moore Saturday, Aug. 1. 1B Travis Shaw will start at third base and is batting sixth in the lineup.

Fantasy Tip: Owners should continue to monitor the situation to see when Sandoval ($4,000, 8.0% of cap) will be able to return. Shaw has not done much in his limited time with Boston this season and should be avoided.

Red Sox | Hanley Ramirez back in lineup

Sat, 01 Aug 2015 08:14:29 -0700

Boston Red Sox OF Hanley Ramirez (shin) will start in left field against Tampa Bay Rays SP Matt Moore Saturday, Aug. 1, and is batting fourth in the lineup.

Fantasy Tip: Ramirez ($5,100, 10.2% of cap) struggled in July with a .212 batting average but does have seven hits and three RBI in his last six games. Owners could consider using Ramirez on FantasyScore, but he does come with some risk because of the injury.

Red Sox | Mike Napoli better since break

Fri, 31 Jul 2015 20:15:14 -0700

Boston Red Sox 1B Mike Napoli went 1-for-2 with a two-run home run, two runs scored and two walks in a 7-5 win over the Tampa Bay Rays Friday, July 31, and he is hitting .317 with three homers and nine RBI since the All-Star break.

Fantasy Tip: Napoli ($3,800, 7.6% of cap) is still hitting just .210 on the year, but his power is legit. He can be worth a look as a high-upside play at FantasyScore while he is swinging the bat well.

Fri, 31 Jul 2015 19:55:05 -0700

Fantasy Tip: Entering play Friday, Sandoval ($4,000, 8.0% of cap) was batting .260 with eight home runs and 34 RBIs through 92 games. The severity of the injury is unknown, so check back for further updates on his status and avoid using him in FantasyScore for the time being.

Red Sox | Hanley Ramirez to be re-evaluated

Fri, 31 Jul 2015 19:47:40 -0700

Red Sox | Pablo Sandoval sitting against Rays

Fri, 31 Jul 2015 14:35:23 -0700

Boston Red Sox 3B Pablo Sandoval is not in the starting line Friday, July 31. 2B Josh Rutledge is starting at third base and batting ninth against Tampa Bay Rays SP Erasmo Ramirez Friday.

Fantasy Tip: Make sure to avoid Sandoval ($4,000, 8.0% of cap) in all fantasy formats Friday, and his production is really fading. He has a .239/.270/.342 slash line over his past 62 games. Rutledge is nothing more than a dice roll for daily contests Friday.

Red Sox | No Hanley Ramirez vs. Tampa Bay

Fri, 31 Jul 2015 14:27:20 -0700

Boston Red Sox OF Hanley Ramirez is not in the starting lineup Friday, July 31. OF Alejandro De Aza is starting in left field and batting fifth against Tampa Bay Rays SP Erasmo Ramirez Friday.

Fantasy Tip: Make sure to avoid Ramirez ($5,100, 10.2% of cap) in all fantasy formats Friday. FantasyScore players can consider De Aza ($3,500, 7.0% of cap) as a potential value option for contests Friday. He is hitting in the heart of the order and has a .298/.348/.500 slash line over 136 plate appearances since joining Boston.

Red Sox | Boston hoping to keep Pablo Sandoval at 3B

Fri, 31 Jul 2015 12:00:09 -0700

Boston Red Sox 3B Pablo Sandoval will remain at third base for the time being, as manager John Farrell said the team is making every effort to keep him at the hot corner.

Fantasy Tip: Sandoval ($4,000, 8.0% of cap) continues to struggle with fluctuating weight problems, and he's also had a very disappointing first season at the plate with Boston, going 88-for-338 (.260) with eight home runs and 34 RBI. Things got so bad against left-handed pitching while hitting from the right side that he has even given up switch hitting. He continues to slump and should be avoided on FantasyScore while he works his way through it.
