Boston Red Sox C Blake Swihart (foot) remains day-to-day and is out of the lineup again Tuesday, June 23, but he is not yet headed to the disabled list. C Erik Kratz has joined the active roster as a backup Tuesday.
Fantasy Tip: Keep a close eye on Swihart's progress over the next few days. Sandy Leon ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) is filling in as the catcher tonight and should continue to do so for however much longer Swihart is out. Avoid Leon at FantasyScore.
