|Red Sox | Dustin Pedroia puts on power display|
Wed, 27 May 2015 15:40:16 -0700
Boston Red Sox 2B Dustin Pedroia hit two two-run home runs in a loss against the Minnesota Twins Wednesday, May 27. It was his second multi-home run game of the season and fifth of his career. He finished with two runs and four RBI to raise his season average to .290.
Fantasy Tip: Pedroia ($4,100, 8.2% of cap) has been one of the few bright spots in the Red Sox's batting order in 2015. However, don't expect much power the rest of the way, as four of his seven home runs on the season have come in two games.

|Red Sox | Dustin Pedroia lands in plus-matchup|
Wed, 27 May 2015 06:11:50 -0700
Boston Red Sox 2B Dustin Pedroia has three home runs and 10 RBI with a .407 batting average over 27 career at-bats against Minnesota Twins SP Phil Hughes. Hughes is starting against Boston Wednesday, May 25.
Fantasy Tip: While past results aren't a guarantee for future success, Pedroia's ($4,100, 8.2% of cap) track record against Hughes ($5,300, 10.6% of cap) is notable. Plus, Pedroia has been hitting well of late and sports a six-game hitting streak. At his cap hit, Pedroia is a nice upside play in FantasyScore contests Wednesday.

|Red Sox | Dustin Pedroia heating up in May|
Thu, 14 May 2015 11:19:20 -0700
Boston Red Sox 2B Dustin Pedroia is hitting .295 (13-for-44) with a home run and five RBI in the month of May. He's currently riding a seven-game hitting streak in which he's batting .346 (9-for-26) with four RBI, and he has two hits in each of his last two games.
Fantasy Tip: Pedroia ($4,600, 9.2% of cap) is hitting .292 (38-for-130) on the season and has been one of the few steady bats in Boston's lineup to start the season. The Red Sox have been awful against lefties in 2015, and they're facing one in Seattle Mariners starter Roenis Elias Thursday night. Pedroia hasn't hit particularly well against lefties, either (.259/.394/.519), but while he's hot right now, he's a nice consideration at the keystone at FantasyScore.

Fantasy Tip: Pedroia ($4,300, 8.6% of cap) should return to the lineup when the team plays their next game. Brock Holt ($2,000, 4.0% of cap) will be starting at second base Sunday and could be a cheaper option for owners to consider since he is hitting .579.

|Red Sox | Dustin Pedroia homers twice|
Mon, 06 Apr 2015 16:29:11 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Pedroia ($5,200, 10.4% of cap) appears to be over the wrist injury he dealt with last season. He could be a nightly starting option on FantasyScore if he is able to stay healthy.

|Red Sox | Dustin Pedroia, Xander Bogaerts raking|
Mon, 09 Mar 2015 14:34:00 -0700
Boston Red Sox 2B Dustin Pedroia (5-for-6 with a homer) and SS Xander Bogaerts (3-for-8 with two homers) are both raking early in spring. Bogaerts had a disappointing 2014 mainly due to struggles against a slider. His second homer this spring came against a slider, however. Bogaerts also struggled with poor plate discipline last year, walking just 6.6% of the time after walking 10.9% in Class AAA in 2013. Pedroia's power has dropped each year since 2011, when he hit a career-high 21 home runs.
Fantasy Tip: Pedroia and Bogaerts are both undervalued at their respective positions heading into 2015. Bogaerts is the more attractive upside pick with plenty of room for a rebound this season. Pedroia's declining power numbers in recent seasons are likely attributed to wrist and hand ailments. You can usually count on a solid average from the veteran, but his power could also rebound if he puts in a fully healthy season.

|Red Sox | Dustin Pedroia off to solid start|
Sun, 08 Mar 2015 06:50:30 -0700
Fantasy Tip: After offseason wrist surgery, it appears Pedroia is proving his health early in spring training. While conclusions shouldn't be jumped to, it is an encouraging start for the 31-year-old veteran. Pedroia claims he is healthy and over the injury, and although a small sample size, the results confirm his stance. Expect Pedroia to be a popular bounce-back selection in the middle rounds on draft day, and if his solid spring continues, expect his fake stock to rise.
