Red Sox | Shane Victorino beginning rehab assignment this weekend

Thu, 17 Apr 2014 14:56:55 -0700

Boston Red Sox OF Shane Victorino (hamstring) will start his rehab assignment Saturday, April 19, likely with Triple-A Pawtucket. He'll play Monday, April 21, Tuesday, April 22, and could return by Thursday, April 24.

Fantasy Tip: Things will get a bit interesting with the outfield alignment when Victorino returns. John Farrell will likely go with Jackie Bradley Jr., Grady Sizemore and Victorino most often if he values defense first. That means Daniel Nava and Jonny Gomes will lose some value.

Red Sox | Mike Napoli dislocates finger

Wed, 16 Apr 2014 06:13:05 -0700

Boston Red Sox 1B Mike Napoli (finger) dislocated his left ring finger sliding into second base Tuesday, April 15. X-rays were negative.

Fantasy Tip: There is no word on how much time he'll miss. However, one must figure it's pretty hard to play first base and accept throws into a dislocated finger. The team could put him on the DL since it's so early in the season, or he could tough it out.
