Red Sox | Dustin Pedroia, Xander Bogaerts starting

Thu, 26 May 2016 12:48:44 -0700

Updating previous reports, Boston Red Sox 2B Dustin Pedroia (hamstring) and SS Xander Bogaerts (thumb) are both in the starting lineup and batting second and third, respectively, against Colorado Rockies SP Jon Gray Thursday, May 26.

Fantasy Tip: It could be slightly risky relying on them in daily contests Thursday, but in seasonal leagues it is all systems go with the middle infield duo. Pedroia boasts a solid .304/.364/.470 slash line for the season, and Bogaerts is in the midst of an 18-game hitting streak.

Red Sox | Jackie Bradley leading off vs. Rockies

Thu, 26 May 2016 12:45:06 -0700

Boston Red Sox OF Jackie Bradley Jr. is starting in center field and leading off against Colorado Rockies SP Jon Gray Thursday, May 26.

Fantasy Tip: Bradley has his hitting streak up to 29 games, and he has a scorching hot .415/.488/.783 slash line during the stretch. Start him with confidence in all fantasy formats until he shows signs of slowing down.

Red Sox | Mookie Betts sitting vs. Colorado

Thu, 26 May 2016 12:36:53 -0700

Boston Red Sox OF Mookie Betts is not in the starting lineup Thursday, May 26. OF Chris Young draws into the lineup and is starting in right field and batting seventh against Colorado Rockies SP Jon Gray Thursday.

Fantasy Tip: Betts has emerged as an elite fantasy contributor, and he tips the scales across all five standard categories. Thus far, he has 41 runs, nine home runs, 35 RBI, eight stolen bases and a .277/.318/.490 slash line. Young has gone just 5-for-29 against right-handed pitchers this season, and he should be viewed as a risky flier in daily contests Thursday.

Red Sox | Xander Bogaerts expected to be fine

Thu, 26 May 2016 09:12:08 -0700

Updating a previous report, Boston Red Sox SS Xander Bogaerts (thumb) isn't expected to miss time after he suffered a cut on his right thumb Wednesday, May 25. "His right thumbnail bent back about half the way, so he's probably a little sore," manager John Farrell said. "But still, first read is that he'll be available again tomorrow."

Fantasy Tip: If you've ever experienced a thumbnail issue like that, you know it can be really sore the following day. Bogaerts is in the midst of an 18-game hitting streak, and it wouldn't be a surprise if he missed Thursday's game. Josh Rutledge, who is hitting .333 on the year, could see a start in his place and could be a low-end DFS play.

Red Sox | Dustin Pedroia expects to play

Thu, 26 May 2016 09:08:40 -0700

Boston Red Sox 2B Dustin Pedroia (hamstring) said he expects to play Thursday, May 26, despite leaving early with right hamstring tightness Wednesday, May 25. Pedroia said he is "fine." He was on the disabled list twice last year with hamstring injuries and was limited to 93 games. Manager John Farrell said Pedroia had a cramp sensation and took him out as a precaution.

Fantasy Tip: Boston is likely to play it safe with their 32-year-old second baseman, so don't be surprised to see him rested for a day or two. He's been a great fantasy asset and has been a great value pick so far, hitting .304 with six home runs and 20 RBI from the keystone. Get him back into all starting lineups when he's back.

Red Sox | Jackie Bradley extends to 29

Wed, 25 May 2016 23:09:48 -0700

Boston Red Sox OF Jackie Bradley Jr. extended his hitting streak to 29 games Wednesday, May 25.

Fantasy Tip: Bradley has an absurd .430-7-21 line this month and should be in all lineups.

Red Sox | Xander Bogaerts extends hitting streak

Wed, 25 May 2016 23:08:43 -0700

Boston Red Sox SS Xander Bogaerts (thumb) extended his hitting streak to 18 games Wednesday, May 25. He received treatment for a cut on his thumb after tagging a runner out in the eighth inning.

Fantasy Tip: Bogaerts isn't expected to miss time due to the thumb wound. He's hitting .406 with four homers and 16 RBI this month and should be in all lineups.

Red Sox | Dustin Pedroia unable to finish game

Wed, 25 May 2016 18:53:36 -0700

Boston Red Sox 2B Dustin Pedroia (hamstring) left the game early Wednesday, May 25, because of right hamstring tightness.

Fantasy Tip: Owners will need to keep an eye on the situation to see if Pedroia will miss any games because of the injury. Pedroia should be a starting option in all leagues when he is healthy. Marco Hernandez and Josh Rutledge would be candidates at second base if Pedroia is not ready and could be sleeper players in daily fantasy leagues.

Red Sox | Ryan Hanigan leaves game

Wed, 25 May 2016 18:52:43 -0700

Boston Red Sox C Ryan Hanigan (illness) left the game early Wednesday, May 25, because of an illness.

Fantasy Tip: Hanigan probably will not miss much time since it is an illness. He will continue to receive a few starts a week but is not a strong starting candidate in most leagues.

Red Sox | Brock Holt won't be rushed back

Wed, 25 May 2016 16:22:35 -0700

Boston Red Sox OF Brock Holt (concussion) isn't expected to be on the disabled list for long, but he won't return immediately to the Red Sox. Holt traveled back to Boston Wednesday, May 25, after two days of testing. Manager John Farrell said there is a detailed treatment plan in place for Holt, and he's still dealing with some symptoms. Holt's conditioning will begin Thursday, May 26.

Fantasy Tip: Holt had been platooning in left field and facing right-handed pitchers. A strong start in April quickly faded, and he's hitting .239 with three home runs and 19 RBI in 113 at-bats. It's unclear what Boston will do in left field with Blake Swihart splitting time with Chris Young when Holt is ready to return. It's entirely possible that Holt's fantasy value already peaked in 2016.

Rockies | DJ LeMahieu batting second vs. Red Sox

Wed, 25 May 2016 14:47:24 -0700

Colorado Rockies 2B DJ LeMahieu is batting second against Boston Red Sox SP Steven Wright Wednesday, May 25.

Fantasy Tip: With Trevor Story out of the lineup, LeMahieu jumps into the two-hole. LeMahieu's fantasy value receives a fleeting boost, and it increases his upside in daily contests. He is having a nice season with 24 runs, two home runs, 14 RBI, five stolen bases and a .310/.366/.434 slash line, and LeMahieu remains a viable starter at the keystone in the majority of seasonal leagues.

Red Sox | Eduardo Rodriguez to pitch for Pawtucket

Wed, 25 May 2016 14:16:45 -0700

Boston Red Sox SP Eduardo Rodriguez (knee) is scheduled to pitch for Class AAA Pawtucket Sunday, May 29.

Fantasy Tip: Rodriguez has some promise and is a viable stash in the majority of seasonal leagues. He went 10-6 with a 3.85 ERA, a 1.29 WHIP and and 7.2 K/9 during his rookie season and appears to be set to return sooner than later now. Stay tuned for updates.

Red Sox | Hanley Ramirez starting vs. Rockies

Wed, 25 May 2016 14:04:06 -0700

Boston Red Sox 1B Hanley Ramirez (toe) is starting at first base and batting fifth against Colorado Rockies SP Chad Bettis Wednesday, May 25. Ramirez left the game early Tuesday, May 24, and was diagnosed with a toe contusion.

Fantasy Tip: Fantasy owners should be happy to see Ramirez back in the lineup following his early exit Tuesday. And while his four home runs are a little lower than expected, Ramirez is pounding the other stat columns with 26 runs and 26 RBI and there are no complaints about his .311 batting average and .364 on-base percentage. Look for the power to pick up, and Ramirez appears to be set for a strong rebound showing, as long as he can avoid injuries.

Rockies | Trevor Story sitting vs. Red Sox

Wed, 25 May 2016 13:22:17 -0700

Colorado Roackies SS Trevor Story is not in the starting lineup Wednesday, May 25. INF Cristhian Adames is starting at shortstop and batting ninth against Boston Red Sox SP Steven Wright Wednesday.

Fantasy Tip: Story is 0-for-8 with six strikeouts through his past two games, so sitting down against a knuckleball pitcher might be a nice chance for him to regroup. The rookie has been a fantasy star to start the season with 27 runs, 12 home runs, 31 RBI and a .272/.327/.578 slash line, and the peaks have been higher than the lows of the valleys thus far. Adames is nothing more than a desperation source of cap relief in daily contests Wednesday.

Red Sox | David Ortiz drives in four Tuesday

Tue, 24 May 2016 20:48:03 -0700

Boston Red Sox 1B David Ortiz went 2-for-4 with a double Tuesday, May 24, versus the Colorado Rockies. He finished with one run scored and four RBI.

Fantasy Tip: Unsurprisingly, Big Papi has been a major contributor in his final year. The double tonight was his 20th, which leads all of Major League Baseball, and the 40-year-old Ortiz is now hitting .333 with a splendid 1.099 OPS. Keep firing him up every time he's in the starting batting order.
