Sun, 24 May 2015 19:32:17 -0700

Boston Red Sox SS Xander Bogaerts went 4-for-4 with two runs scored in a 6-1 win over the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim Sunday, May 24.

Red Sox | Pablo Sandoval changes approach

Sun, 24 May 2015 19:09:50 -0700

Boston Red Sox 3B Pablo Sandoval had a pinch-hit single in a 6-1 win over the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim Sunday, May 24, and he choose to bat left-handed against a left-handed pitcher. He entered the game 2-for-41 as a right-handed batter against left-handed pitching.

Fantasy Tip: While it remains to be seen if Sandoval ($5,200, 10.4% of cap) decides to bat solely left-handed going forward, he should only be used at FantasyScore against righties until he figures out some way to improve his numbers against left-handed pitching.

Red Sox | Hanley Ramirez on RBI dry spell

Sun, 24 May 2015 14:26:36 -0700

Boston Red Sox OF Hanley Ramirez is the only player in Major League Baseball this month to have over 60 at-bats without a run batted in.

Fantasy Tip: Ramirez ($6,000, 12.0% of cap) does have a .263 batting average, but his fantasy value is somewhat hampered because of his inability to drive in runners. Downgrade your expectations with Ramirez until he shakes this mini-slump.

Red Sox | Shane Victorino placed on DL

Sun, 24 May 2015 11:02:44 -0700

Updating a previous report, the Boston Red Sox have placed OF Shane Victorino (calf) on the 15-day disabled list due to continued tightness in his calf, according to manager John Farrell. In a corresponding move, INF Jeff Bianchi was recalled from Class AAA Pawtucket.

Fantasy Tip: This marks the second time this season and sixth time since joining the Red Sox that Victorino ($2,500, 5.0% of cap) has hit the disabled list. Rusney Castillo appears poised to receive the bulk of the playing time in right field while Victorino is out. If he is still available in seasonal AL-only or mixed fantasy leagues, grab him before it's too late.

Red Sox | Blake Swihart not in the lineup

Sun, 24 May 2015 09:18:56 -0700

Boston Red Sox C Blake Swihart is not in the starting lineup Sunday, May 24. C Sandy Leon will be the starting catcher for the Red Sox.

Fantasy Tip: Swihart ($2,600, 5.2% of cap) likely is receiving a day off and should return to the lineup in the next day or two. Leon ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) is hitting only .152 this season and should be avoided on FantasyScore.

Red Sox | Mike Napoli's flexing his muscles

Sat, 23 May 2015 20:22:46 -0700

Boston Red Sox 1B Mike Napoli went 2-for-3 with two home runs, three RBIs, two runs scored and a walk in an 8-3 win over the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim Saturday, May 23, and he has four home runs in his last five games.

Fantasy Tip: Napoli ($3,100, 6.2% of cap) is still hitting just .193 on the year, and he remains a boom-or-bust option at FantasyScore.

Red Sox | Shane Victorino's calf flares up

Sat, 23 May 2015 18:28:27 -0700

Boston Red Sox OF Shane Victorino (calf) exited against the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim in the fourth inning with tightness in his left calf Saturday, May 23.

Fantasy Tip: Victorino ($2,500, 5.0% of cap) hasn't been able to stay on the field this year, and after re-aggravating his calf injury, it is too early to tell how long he will be out.

Red Sox | Rusney Castillo starting second straight

Sat, 23 May 2015 13:46:44 -0700

Boston Red Sox OF Rusney Castillo will start his second consecutive game Saturday, May 23, against the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim. Castillo will start in center field and hit seventh in the order.

Fantasy Tip: Castillo picked up one hit in four plate appearances and scored his first run of the season in his first game. Owners should be giving Castillo some time to get accustomed to the major leagues before investing. It is a very positive sign for season-long owners to see Castillo start in back-to-back games after being called up.

Red Sox | Pablo Sandoval out again

Sat, 23 May 2015 13:41:05 -0700

Boston Red Sox 3B Pablo Sandoval (knee) is out of the starting lineup once again Saturday, May 23, against the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim. OF Brock Holt will make another start at third base, and he will bat eighth in the order.

Fantasy Tip: Holt ($2,700, 5.4% of cap) collected two hits, including one double, Friday, against the Angels. Holt struggles against lefties, limiting him to GPP duties against Angels LHP C.J. Wilson.

Red Sox | Shane Victorino starting in RF

Sat, 23 May 2015 13:33:35 -0700

Boston Red Sox OF Shane Victorino will start in right field and bat second in the order Saturday, May 23, against the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim.

Fantasy Tip: Victorino ($2,500, 5.0% of cap) will make his first start since Wednesday, May 20. The right-handed hitting Victorino has been hitting .364 against lefties this season, and he'll be a strong option against Angels LHP C.J. Wilson.

Red Sox | Mookie Betts not starting Saturday

Sat, 23 May 2015 13:23:47 -0700

Boston Red Sox OF Mookie Betts is not in the starting lineup Saturday, May 23, against the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim.

Fantasy Tip: The recent addition of Rusney Castillo to the major league lineup has made the outfield pretty crowded in Boston. Betts ($4,300, 8.6% of cap) had gone 6-for-19 in his last four games, but he hadn't drawn a walk in 10 consecutive games. Betts can make for a quality option on FantasyScore when facing a right-handed pitcher, but he'll sit out Saturday against lefty C.J. Wilson of the Angels.

Red Sox | Hanley Ramirez undergoes X-rays

Sat, 23 May 2015 07:15:22 -0700

Boston Red Sox OF Hanley Ramirez (hand) underwent X-rays on his hand after he was hit by a pitch Friday, May 22. Ramirez's X-rays were negative, and he could play again when the soreness goes away.

Fantasy Tip: Ramirez ($6,000, 12.0% of cap) could miss a few games because of the injury, but it does not appear to be a serious injury. Ramirez only has four hits in his last seven games but could still be a solid option on FantasyScore when healthy.

Red Sox | Rusney Castillo hitting eighth Friday

Fri, 22 May 2015 15:20:02 -0700

Boston Red Sox OF Rusney Castillo is starting in right field and hitting eighth in the batting order against Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim SP Garrett Richards Friday, May 22. It is Castillo's season debut after being called up earlier in the day.

Fantasy Tip: Castillo hit .333 (12-for-36) with two home runs and six RBI as a September call-up in 2014, and injuries derailed his plans to open the season with Boston this season. But now that he's back, he should play fairly consistently, and his combination of power and speed makes him a fantasy asset that needs to be owned everywhere. Many people might find it hard not to put him in there FantasyScore lineups for his season debut, but you should avoid the temptation. He has a tough first matchup against the dominant Richards, and hitting near the bottom of the order hurts Castillo's chances for knocking in runs.

Red Sox | Xander Bogaerts moved up in lineup

Fri, 22 May 2015 13:52:49 -0700

Boston Red Sox SS Xander Bogaerts, who is hitting .345 (10-for-29) with a double, triple and home run in the last nine games, has been moved up to fifth in the batting order against Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim SP Garrett Richards Friday, May 22.

Fantasy Tip: Bogaerts ($3,600, 7.2% of cap) is one of the few players in Boston's lineup swinging a hot stick right now, hence the move up the order. However, he's not the best pick to click tonight against a dominant Richards, who has held righties to a .177 average (11-for-62) with 17 strikeouts this year.

Red Sox | Boston to rotate outfielders

Fri, 22 May 2015 13:44:06 -0700

Boston Red Sox OFs Rusney Castillo, Mookie Betts and Shane Victorino (calf) will all rotation between center field and right field, according to manager John Farrell. However, Victorino is currently day-to-day with a calf injury.

Fantasy Tip: Castillo and Betts ($4,300, 8.6% of cap) are both starting tonight with Victorino sidelined. Castillo and Betts may struggle to return value against Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim starter Garrett Richards, who has returned to form this year following a gruesome knee injury in 2015. Victorino could be the odd-man out more often than not. Castillo should be owned in all leagues for his power-speed combo.
