Red Sox | Hanley Ramirez will be DH

Sun, 05 Jul 2015 08:29:33 -0700

Boston Red Sox OF Hanley Ramirez will serve as the designated hitter against Houston Astros SP Lance McCullers Sunday, July 5, and is batting fifth in the lineup. OF Alejandro De Aza will start in left field and is batting eighth in the lineup.

Fantasy Tip: Ramirez ($5,600, 11.2% of cap) is off to a quick start in July with two home runs and three RBI in four games. Owners on FantasyScore could consider using him in their lineups. De Aza ($2,900, 5.8% of cap) has recorded at least one hit in nine of his last 10 games and 13 RBI in that span. De Aza could be a cheaper option for owners to consider.

Red Sox | David Ortiz starting at 1B

Sun, 05 Jul 2015 08:20:15 -0700

Boston Red Sox 1B David Ortiz will be the starting first baseman against the Houston Astros SP Lance McCullers Sunday, July 5. 1B Mike Napoli is not in the lineup Sunday.

Fantasy Tip: Ortiz ($4,200, 8.4% of cap) is receiving a rare start in the field Sunday. He has five hits, two home runs and six RBI over his last five games and could be an option for owners on FantasyScore.

Red Sox | Allen Craig to get a look?

Sun, 05 Jul 2015 06:07:19 -0700

Boston Red Sox OF Allen Craig could be an option to replace struggling 1B Mike Napoli at first base for the Red Sox. Craig has an on-base percentage over .400 in the minor leagues.

Fantasy Tip: Craig is hitting .275 at Class AAA, and he has three home runs in 185 plate appearances. Craig opened the season with a .135 batting average through 59 plate appearances in the major leagues, and he won't be a fantasy option until he proves otherwise.

Red Sox | Clay Buchholz continues rolling

Sat, 04 Jul 2015 16:04:39 -0700

Boston Red Sox SP Clay Buchholz allowed a run on six hits and no walks while fanning eight in his complete-game win over the Houston Astros Saturday, July 4.

Fantasy Tip: Buchholz has a 0.87 ERA and is 4-0 in his last four starts. At $6,500 (13.0% of cap), he's a great play for his next start on FantasyScore against the New York Yankees.

Red Sox | Ryan Hanigan sitting out

Sat, 04 Jul 2015 09:54:26 -0700

Boston Red Sox C Ryan Hanigan is not in the starting lineup against Houston Astros SP Collin McHugh Saturday, July 4. C Sandy Leon will start at catcher and is batting ninth in the lineup.

Fantasy Tip: Hanigan likely is receiving a day off and should return to the starting lineup soon. Leon ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) is hitting only .143 this season and should not be a starting option on FantasyScore.

Red Sox | Shane Victorino starting in RF

Sat, 04 Jul 2015 09:45:48 -0700

Boston Red Sox OF Shane Victorino will start in right field against Houston Astros SP Collin McHugh Saturday, July 4, and is batting eighth in the lineup.

Fantasy Tip: Victorino ($2,500, 5.0% of cap) recently was activated from the disabled list and is receiving his first start. Owners on FantasyScore may want to see Victrino play in a few games before considering him a starting option.

Red Sox | Shane Victorino returns to team

Fri, 03 Jul 2015 14:30:04 -0700

Boston Red Sox OF Shane Victorino (calf) was activated from the 15-day disabled list Friday, July 3. The team also optioned OF Jackie Bradley Jr. to Class AAA Pawtucket. Victorino and OF Alejandro De Aza will share time in right field.

Fantasy Tip: Victorino ($2,500, 5.0% of cap) has not played since the last week in May, so owners should want to see him play in a few games before considering him for their lineups. His value will also take a hit since he will be part of a platoon for the time being.

Red Sox | Blake Swihart placed on DL

Fri, 03 Jul 2015 14:29:31 -0700

Boston Red Sox C Blake Swihart (foot) was placed on the 15-day disabled list Friday, July 3, because of a foot injury.

Fantasy Tip: Ryan Hanigan probably will receive most of the starts while Swihart is sidelined but probably is not a good option on FantasyScore. Sandy Leon ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) could also receive more starts but should be avoided.

Red Sox | Four-hit night for Brock Holt

Thu, 02 Jul 2015 20:59:09 -0700

Boston Red Sox OF Brock Holt went 4-for-6 with a run scored and a steal in a 12-6 win over the Toronto Blue Jays Thursday, July 2.

Fantasy Tip: The four hits doubled his total from the previous eight games, and while the regular playing time he is receiving in the wake of a Dustin Pedroia injury could be taking a bit of a toll, Holt ($4,000, 8.0% of cap) is still worth a look as a mid-priced option at FantasyScore against solid matchups.

Red Sox | Xander Bogaerts collects four hits

Thu, 02 Jul 2015 20:49:35 -0700

Boston Red Sox SS Xander Bogaerts went 4-for-6 with two RBI and a run scored in a 12-6 win over the Toronto Blue Jays Thursday, July 2.

Fantasy Tip: Bogaerts ($3,500, 7.0% of cap) is coming off a solid month of June where he .312 with 16 RBI and 14 runs scored. The highly-touted 22-year-old could be starting to figure things out, and he is currently providing solid production for a price that won't break the bank at FantasyScore.

Red Sox | Blake Swihart not playing

Thu, 02 Jul 2015 14:10:49 -0700

Boston Red Sox C Blake Swihart is out of the lineup for the second straight game Thursday, July 2. C Ryan Hanigan (hand) was activated from the disabled list and is hitting ninth against Toronto Blue Jays SP Matt Boyd.

Fantasy Tip: Hanigan should be avoided everywhere. Before being injured, he was hitting a paltry .222 (12-for-54) with a home run and 12 strikeouts.

Red Sox | Rick Porcello lasts just two innings

Wed, 01 Jul 2015 16:30:35 -0700

Boston Red Sox SP Rick Porcello allowed seven runs on seven hits, including three home runs, during Boston's 11-2 loss to the Toronto Blue Jays Wednesday, July 1.

Fantasy Tip: Porcello ($3,900, 7.8% of cap) has four wins with a 6.08 ERA and a 1.40 WHIP. He cannot be started with confidence in any fantasy format and checks out as a desperation start at this point. In the majority of leagues, Porcello is replaceable.

Red Sox | Brock Holt has cooled off

Wed, 01 Jul 2015 10:28:55 -0700

Boston Red Sox OF Brock Holt, who is taking the day off Wednesday, July 1, has just four hits in his last 32 at-bats (.125). He had played every inning of every game since June 5 and also collided with Toronto Blue Jays 2B Devon Travis Tuesday, June 30.

Fantasy Tip: Holt ($4,000, 8.0% of cap) is still hitting .288 (59-for-205) despite his recent cold stretch, and he'll continue to see consistent playing time as long as Dustin Pedroia is on the DL. He'll continue to have short-term value in most fantasy formats, including on FantasyScore.

Red Sox | Koji Uehara may be rested

Wed, 01 Jul 2015 10:26:42 -0700

Boston Red Sox RP Koji Uehara has appeared in three straight games, and the Red Sox would prefer to give him the day off Wednesday, July 1. He hasn't worked on four straight days all year. "I'm not going to say he's not available but at the same time we'd like to do everything we can to stay away," manager John Farrell said.

Fantasy Tip: Alexi Ogando is unavailable, too, so if a save situation arises Wednesday afternoon, expect the chance to go to Junichi Tazawa. Tazawa has fine peripherals to go along with a 2.62 ERA and 0.99 WHIP in 2015. He's definitely a reliever worth owning in deeper leagues to help your pitching stats.

Red Sox | David Ortiz defying his critics

Wed, 01 Jul 2015 09:35:21 -0700

Boston Red Sox 1B David Ortiz has hit seven home runs in his last 19 games and has 13 on the season. Ortiz continues to deny that he has lost bat speed as he ages. "I don't know why people go there," Ortiz said. "Why don't they throw me 96 mph right down (the middle). Tell all the pitchers to throw me fastballs 96 right down the (middle). See if I lost bat speed."

Fantasy Tip: Ortiz ($4,200, 8.4% of cap) is only hitting .228 (60-for-263) on the season, though, despite his 13 long balls and 36 RBI. More concerning are his struggles against lefties in 2015 (.114/.122/.152 in 79 at-bats). He's a big time risk/reward play today on FantasyScore against Toronto Blue Jays starter Mark Buehrle. Papi is 26-for-83 (.313) in his career against the left-hander with six home runs and 24 RBI.
