Red Sox | Infield tentatively set

Fri, 01 Aug 2014 02:25:07 -0700

Boston Red Sox SS Xander Bogaerts figures to get playing time at the position now that SS Stephen Drew was dealt to the New York Yankees, and 3B Kelly Johnson will fill in at that position as 3B Will Middlebrooks works his way back into the lineup.

Red Sox | Shane Victorino has back issue

Thu, 31 Jul 2014 15:52:10 -0700

Updating a previous report, Boston Red Sox OF Shane Victorino (back) is expected to miss some time with a back injury.

Fantasy Tip: It seems likely that Victorino will go back on the disabled list, possibly as early as tomorrow. With the Red Sox adding two new outfielders at the trade deadline, playing time might be hard to come by when he returns. Victorino should probably only be stashed in deep mixed and AL-only leagues.

Red Sox | Shane Victorino back to DL?

Thu, 31 Jul 2014 15:48:02 -0700

Boston Red Sox OF Shane Victorino (undisclosed) could be headed back to the disabled list soon. He will "miss a little time," according to general manager Ben Cherington. OF Yoenis Cespedes will play right field and OF Allen Craig will be in left.

Fantasy Tip: Victorino just can't seem to stay healthy as he ages. Don't feel the need to hang onto him in standard leagues if he goes back on the DL. Jackie Bradley Jr. seems safe, for now.

Red Sox | Will Middlebrooks returning Friday

Thu, 31 Jul 2014 15:35:56 -0700

Boston Red Sox 3B Will Middlebrooks (finger) will be activated from the disabled list Friday, Aug. 1.

Fantasy Tip: The writing was on the wall for a Middlebrooks return once the Red Sox traded Stephen Drew to the rival Yanks. Middlebrooks could enter into a platoon with Kelly Johnson at third base when he returns, but Middlebrooks figures to see the majority of the playing time. If you're in need at a corner infield spot in a deep mixed league, Middlebrooks might be just what the doctor ordered, just don't expect much help in the BA department.

Red Sox | Kelly Johnson acquired

Thu, 31 Jul 2014 14:28:05 -0700

The Boston Red Sox acquired 3B Kelly Johnson from the New York Yankees Thursday, July 31, in exchange for SS Stephen Drew.

Fantasy Tip: Boston's acquisition of Johnson will allow Xander Bogaerts to move back to his natural position, shortstop. That could make him more comfortable at the plate, as well. Johnson's value increases with this move, since he should have more consistent playing time, at least until the BoSox think Will Middlebrooks (finger) is ready to return.

Red Sox | Anthony Ranaudo starting Friday

Thu, 31 Jul 2014 12:33:44 -0700

Boston Red Sox SP Anthony Ranaudo will start Friday, August 1, against the New York Yankees.

Fantasy Tip: Ranaudo has been lights out for Triple-A Pawtucket and enters the mixed league conversation, especially if he pitches well tomorrow. AL-only owners should rush to the waiver wire to add Ranaudo.

Red Sox | Acquire Allen Craig, Joe Kelly

Thu, 31 Jul 2014 09:41:57 -0700

The Boston Red Sox acquired OF Allen Craig and SP Joe Kelly from the St. Louis Cardinals Thursday, July 31, in exchange for SP John Lackey.

Fantasy Tip: Well then. Craig has been a former shell of himself this year, but the move to Boston could spark a turnaround in a more hitter-friendly environment. He'll also see more consistent playing time in Beantown. Kelly hasn't excited since his return from the DL, and he won't be any more intriguing with the move to the AL East.

Back in St. Louis, the departure of Craig opens up everyday PT for Oscar Taveras. Everyday at-bats should be good for the youngster, and it could elevate his play to levels that we've expected of him. He should be owned everywhere now.

Red Sox | Yoenis Cespedes acquired

Thu, 31 Jul 2014 06:56:51 -0700

The Boston Red Sox acquired OF Yoenis Cespedes and a competitive balance pick from the Oakland Athletics for SP Jon Lester and OF Jonny Gomes, according to a source.

Fantasy Tip: Cespedes' fantasy value doesn't change much. He's still a power-driven asset in a tepid hitter's park. For more, Click on our Trade Deadline Tracker!

Red Sox | Jon Lester expected to be in uniform

Wed, 30 Jul 2014 11:40:49 -0700

Boston Red Sox SP Jon Lester is expected to be in uniform Wednesday, July 30, according to manager John Farrell.

Fantasy Tip: Trade rumors are swirling hard around Lester. He's still expected to be traded, but it might not come until later tonight or tomorrow before the deadline.

Red Sox | Good chance both Jon Lester, John Lackey traded

Wed, 30 Jul 2014 09:34:39 -0700

Boston Red Sox SPs Jon Lester and John Lackey have a "very good chance" to both be traded, according to a source.

Fantasy Tip: This is good news for the likes of Brandon Workman and Allen Webster, two youngsters that would likely seal up rotation spots for the rest of the second half. Keep that in mind in AL-only leagues.

Red Sox | Other pieces could be traded

Wed, 30 Jul 2014 09:31:05 -0700

Boston Red Sox RP Burke Badenhop could have some trade appeal for a team seeking relief help, and the Red Sox are also open to trading RPs Felix Doubront, Craig Breslow and Edward Mujica and 1B Mike Carp.
