Red Sox | Blake Swihart not catching

Wed, 29 Jul 2015 14:41:19 -0700

Boston Red Sox C Blake Swihart is not in the starting lineup Wednesday, July 29. C Ryan Hanigan is behind the plate and is hitting eighth against Chicago White Sox SP Jose Quintana.

Fantasy Tip: Hanigan ($3,100, 6.2% of cap) is rather pricey at FantasyScore for a catcher hitting only .230 (23-for-100) with one home run and nine RBI. Look to avoid him tonight.

Red Sox | Blake Swihart catching Saturday

Sat, 25 Jul 2015 11:03:43 -0700

Boston Red Sox C Blake Swihart will bat ninth against Detroit Tigers SP Alfredo Simon Saturday, July 25. C Ryan Hanigan is getting the day off.

Fantasy Tip: Swihart ($2,800, 5.6% of cap) is 1-for-6 with two runs scored in two games since coming off the disabled list. However, he is batting .273 during day games this season and makes an intriguing FantasyScore sleeper option.

Mon, 20 Jul 2015 17:44:44 -0700

Boston Red Sox C Blake Swihart will start Game 2 of the doubleheader Monday, July 20, against the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim. Swihart will hit ninth in the order against LHP Andrew Heaney. C Ryan Hanigan comes out of the starting lineup.

Fantasy Tip: Swihart ($2,800, 5.6% of cap) was hitting just .211 against lefties before going on the disabled list, and he should be avoided against a red-hot Heaney.

Red Sox | Blake Swihart returns to Red Sox

Mon, 20 Jul 2015 13:10:14 -0700

Boston Red Sox C Blake Swihart (foot) was activated from the 15-day disabled list Monday, July 20. The team also designated C Sandy Leon for assignment. Manager John Farrell said C Ryan Hanigan will remain the starting catcher, but Swihart will play more than a normal backup catcher.

Fantasy Tip: It appears like Swihart ($2,800, 5.6% of cap) will receive a couple of starts during the week for the time being. He picked up at least one hit in seven of his last nine games before being placed on the disabled list. Owners on FantasyScore could consider using Swihart when he is in the lineup.

Boston Red Sox C Ryan Hanigan is not in the starting lineup against Houston Astros SP Collin McHugh Saturday, July 4. C Sandy Leon will start at catcher and is batting ninth in the lineup.

Fantasy Tip: Hanigan likely is receiving a day off and should return to the starting lineup soon. Leon ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) is hitting only .143 this season and should not be a starting option on FantasyScore.

Fantasy Tip: Hanigan is likely to see sporadic at-bats when he returns and he is only worth using in FantasyScore as a salary saver.

Red Sox | Ryan Hanigan set for rehab

Fri, 19 Jun 2015 15:47:41 -0700

Boston Red Sox C Ryan Hanigan (finger) is set to start a rehab assignment on Monday, June 22, barring setbacks.

Fantasy Tip: Hanigan ($2,300, 4.6% of cap) could be out of a job when he returns as the club is giving Blake Swihart ($2,800, 5.6% of cap) an extended look. Still, Swihart's bat hasn't been red-hot, so Hanigan could see action in more games.

Updating previous reports, Boston Red Sox C Ryan Hanigan (pinkie) underwent surgery on his fractured right pinkie. According to manager John Farrell, he is not expected to return to action until after the All-Star break.

Fantasy Tip: Blake Swihart, who is not yet available in FantasyScore, is expected to serve as Boston's No. 1 catcher during Hanigan's absence, with Sandy Leon ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) backing him up. Swihart is considered to be one of baseball's top catching prospects and should be grabbed in all fantasy formats.
