Red Sox | Ryan Hanigan could miss several months

Sun, 03 May 2015 11:32:04 -0700

Updating previous reports, Boston Red Sox C Ryan Hanigan (pinkie) underwent surgery on his fractured right pinkie. According to manager John Farrell, he is not expected to return to action until after the All-Star break.

Fantasy Tip: Blake Swihart, who is not yet available in FantasyScore, is expected to serve as Boston's No. 1 catcher during Hanigan's absence, with Sandy Leon ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) backing him up. Swihart is considered to be one of baseball's top catching prospects and should be grabbed in all fantasy formats.

Red Sox | Manager discusses Blake Swihart

Sun, 03 May 2015 06:06:36 -0700

Boston Red Sox C Blake Swihart playing time is not set in stone, according to manager John Farrell. "I don't have an exact split on it," Farrell said Saturday, May 2. "Blake is a darned good prospect. He's going to get a lot of exposure. But we'll ease him in and out and divide the time as we feel appropriate."

Fantasy Tip: Through 18 games with Triple-A Pawtucket this season, Swihart was hitting .338, and as long as he holds up with the Red Sox, he'll receive the majority of starts over Sandy Leon ($1,600, 3.2% of cap). Swihart is worth a flier in deep mixed leagues, and he should be owned in all AL-only formats. Entering a potent lineup should ease some of the typical rookie woes, too.

Sat, 02 May 2015 16:08:14 -0700

Boston Red Sox C Blake Swihart got his first major league hit Saturday, May 2, against the New York Yankees. Swihart finished the game 1-for-3 with a walk, a run scored and two strikeouts.

Fantasy Tip: Swihart has some offensive upside and will become worthy of FantasyScore consideration once he becomes available.

Red Sox | Blake Swihart starting Saturday

Sat, 02 May 2015 10:28:27 -0700

The Boston Red Sox have called up C Blake Swihart from Triple-A Pawtucket. He is in the starting lineup against the New York Yankees Saturday, May 2, batting ninth.

Fantasy Tip: Swihart, who hit .338 with 11 RBIs in 18 games with Pawtucket this season, is generally regarded as one of the top catching prospects in baseball. He is likely to receive the bulk of the playing time behind the plate while Ryan Hanigan (pinkie) is on the disabled list. If available, Swihart should be grabbed in all fantasy formats.

Red Sox | Ryan Hanigan placed on DL

Sat, 02 May 2015 10:22:36 -0700

The Boston Red Sox have placed C Ryan Hanigan (pinkie) on the 15-day disabled list because of a fractured right pinkie. He suffered the injury in the game against the New York Yankees Friday, May 1.

Fantasy Tip: As a result of Hanigan's injury, the Red Sox have promoted top catching prospect Blake Swihart from the minors. He should be grabbed in all fantasy formats, although he is not yet available in FantasyScore.

Red Sox | Blake Swihart starting vs. NYY

Sat, 02 May 2015 07:34:31 -0700

Boston Red Sox C Blake Swihart is in the starting lineup against the New York Yankees Saturday, May 2, and is batting ninth.

Fantasy Tip: Swihart is one of the top prospects in baseball, but it is not known how many starts he will receive while with the Red Sox. Owners may want to see how he does in a game or two before deciding to use him.

Red Sox | Ryan Hanigan injured

Sat, 02 May 2015 02:11:14 -0700

Boston Red Sox C Ryan Hanigan (hand) left the game against the New York Yankees Friday, May 1, with a broken knuckle that will require surgery. Hanigan is expected to miss a "lengthy" period of time, according to manager John Farrell.

Fantasy Tip: Hanigan ($2,300, 4.6% of cap) can be removed from all fantasy lineups. This is also noteworthy because the Red Sox are likely to call up Blake Swihart from the minors shortly, and Swihart is regarded as one of MLB's top catching prospects. Regular-league owners may want to act accordingly, and those in daily leagues will want to see what happens with Swihart before adding him.

Red Sox | Rusney Castillo to play OF soon

Fri, 01 May 2015 14:12:27 -0700

Boston Red Sox OF Rusney Castillo (shoulder) is expected to return to the outfield in the minor leagues early next week, according to manager John Farrell.

Fantasy Tip: Castillo is working his way back from a shoulder injury that prevented him from opening the year in the majors. Once he's gets enough playing time under his belt in the minors, he could be called up to Boston shortly after. He should be owned in all AL-only leagues, and it might be time to stash him away in deep mixed leagues to get ahead of your competition.

Red Sox | Shane Victorino needs rehab assignment

Fri, 01 May 2015 13:33:17 -0700

Boston Red Sox OF Shane Victorino (hamstring) will need a short rehab assignment before he's activated from the disabled list.

Fantasy Tip: With Victorino out, a combination of Allen Craig ($2,100, 4.2% of cap), Brock Holt ($3,100, 6.2% of cap) and Daniel Nava ($1,800, 3.6% of cap) have been filling in in right field. None of the three is worth owning past AL-only leagues, and they're all strictly weak matchup plays at FantasyScore.

Red Sox | Allen Craig staring in right field

Fri, 01 May 2015 12:03:13 -0700

Boston Red Sox OF Allen Craig is starting in right field and batting seventh against the New York Yankees Friday, May 1.

Fantasy Tip: Craig ($2,100, 4.2% of cap) has a career .824 OPS against left-handed pitchers, so despite his early-season struggles, he is in play for FantasyScore contests Friday. Opposing pitcher C.C. Sabathia ($3,900, 7.8% of cap) is sporting a 5.96 ERA, too.

Red Sox | Koji Uehara gaining steam

Thu, 30 Apr 2015 06:43:00 -0700

Boston Red Sox RP Koji Uehara's fastball averaged 87.25 mph Monday, April 27, which was a 2 mph leap from his previous outing. His fastball velocity increased slightly to 87.33 mph Wednesday, April 29, and he showed an ability to locate.

Fantasy Tip: Uehara appears to be kicking off the rust as he has struck out five in his last two perfect innings. He is a solid first reliever in traditional leagues.

Red Sox | Mike Napoli hitless in return

Wed, 29 Apr 2015 21:43:41 -0700

Boston Red Sox 1B Mike Napoli (illness) returned to the starting lineup Wednesday, April 29, against the Toronto Blue Jays.

Fantasy Tip: Napoli was hitless in three at-bats, dropping his average to .162. FantasyScore owners should avoid Naps ($3,100; or 6.2% of cap) until he can get untracked and show off a little more power.

Red Sox | Hanley Ramirez ties club record

Wed, 29 Apr 2015 21:43:04 -0700

Boston Red Sox OF Hanley Ramirez tied a club record with his 10th home run before May 1. He finished 1-for-4 with the two-run homer off Toronto Blue Jays knuckleballer R.A. Dickey.

Fantasy Tip: HanRam is now up to 10 bombs and 22 RBIs, tying a career best in April. He also had 10 homers before May 1 as a member of the Florida Marlins in 2008. He has been a steal in FantasyScore at just $5,900 (or 11.8% of cap).

Red Sox | Brock Holt starts in RF

Wed, 29 Apr 2015 13:18:22 -0700

Boston Red Sox 2B Brock Holt is starting in right field and hitting seventh in the batting order against Toronto Blue Jays SP R.A. Dickey Wednesday, April 29.

Fantasy Tip: Holt ($3,100, 6.2% of cap) has 16 hits in 42 at-bats off the bench this year, and he may see more playing time in right field over the slumping Daniel Nava while Shane Victorino (hamstring) is on the disabled list. Holt has short-term AL-only value if he continues to see consistent playing time. He'll make for a sleeper play at FantasyScore this evening against a struggling Dickey.

Red Sox | Mike Napoli back in

Wed, 29 Apr 2015 13:14:49 -0700

Boston Red Sox 1B Mike Napoli (illness) is back in the lineup starting at first base and hitting sixth in the batting order against Toronto Blue Jays SP R.A. Dickey Wednesday, April 29.

Fantasy Tip: Napoli ($3,100, 6.2% of cap) is off to a slow start in 2015, hitting only .169 (11-for-65) with one home run and four RBI, and it's usually unwise to run with a player in daily games that's been ill recently. Napoli, however, is 6-for-18 (.333) in his career against Dickey.
