Red Sox | Ryan Hanigan likely done for year

Fri, 02 Oct 2015 19:40:06 -0700

Boston Red Sox C Ryan Hanigan (hand) is day-to-day with a sore right hand, and Torey Lovullo said Hanigan will only be used in emergency situations going forward.

Fantasy Tip: Hanigan ($3,100, 6.2% of ca) isn't officially finished for the year, but it sounds like he can be ignored at FantasyScore the rest of the way.

Red Sox | Blake Swihart sitting against Rays

Thu, 24 Sep 2015 12:33:36 -0700

Boston Red Sox C Blake Swihart is not in the starting lineup Thursday, Sept. 24. C Ryan Hanigan is starting behind the plate and batting eighth against Tampa Bay Rays SP Erasmo Ramirez Thursday.

Fantasy Tip: Make sure to avoid Swihart ($4,200, 8.4% of cap) in all fantasy formats Thursday. The rookie is having a strong second half with a .298/.352/.405 slash line and 25 runs through 36 games. Hanigan ($3,100, 6.2% of cap) has a .626 OPS in September, and is nothing more than a low-priced flier at FantasyScore Thursday.

Red Sox | No Blake Swihart against Rays

Mon, 21 Sep 2015 13:06:50 -0700

Boston Red Sox C Blake Swihart is not in the starting lineup Monday, Sept. 21. C Ryan Hanigan is starting behind the plate and batting eighth against Tampa Bay Rays SP Chris Archer Monday.

Fantasy Tip: The rookie has sat out consecutive games, so you'll want to check back and for a potential injury announcement. Swihart ($4,200, 8.4% of cap) projects to return to the starting lineup Tuesday, Sept. 22, assuming he is healthy, though. Hanigan ($3,100, 6.2% of cap) is a low-end FantasyScore play Monday, as Archer ($9,200, 18.4% of cap) presents a difficult matchup.

Red Sox | Blake Swihart out Tuesday

Tue, 15 Sep 2015 13:06:17 -0700

Boston Red Sox C Blake Swihart is not in the starting lineup Tuesday, Sept. 15. C Ryan Hanigan is behind the dish and is batting eighth against Baltimore Orioles SP Ubaldo Jimenez.

Fantasy Tip: Hanigan ($3,100, 6.2% of cap) is on the expensive side for a backup catcher without much power, so you should consider him a very weak play on FantasyScore.

Red Sox | Blake Swihart out against Toronto

Wed, 09 Sep 2015 12:32:05 -0700

Boston Red Sox C Blake Swihart is not in the starting lineup Wednesday, Sept. 9. C Ryan Hanigan is starting and batting eighth against Toronto Blue Jays SP Drew Hutchison.

Fantasy Tip: Hutchison has been much better at home than on the road for Toronto this year, so this is a game where Red Sox hitters are attractive in daily formats. Hanigan ($3,100, 6.2% of cap), however, remains a low-end catching commodity with only two homers on the season.

Red Sox | No Blake Swihart against Philly

Fri, 04 Sep 2015 12:51:09 -0700

Boston Red Sox C Blake Swihart is not in the starting lineup Friday, Sept. 4. C Ryan Hanigan is starting behind the plate and batting eighth against Philadelphia Phillies SP Adam Morgan Friday.

Fantasy Tip: Swihart ($3,200, 6.4% of cap) owns a .411/.492/.554 slash line with 17 runs and nine RBI over his past 15 games, as the rookie is blossoming into a solid catcher option in all fantasy formats. Hanigan ($3,100, 6.2% of cap), meanwhile, offers little in the upside department, but he hit over .300 in August and owns a .359/.432/.462 line against lefties this season. FantasyScore players can view Hanigan as a relatively safe source of cap relief Friday.

Red Sox | Blake Swihart sitting out vs. Yankees

Mon, 31 Aug 2015 12:52:24 -0700

Boston Red Sox C Blake Swihart is not in the starting lineup Monday, Aug. 31. C Ryan Hanigan is starting behind the plate and batting eighth against New York Yankees SP Ivan Nova Monday.

Fantasy Tip: Make sure to avoid the surging Swihart ($2,800, 5.6% of cap) in all fantasy formats Monday. His seasonal stock is rising, as the rookie owns a .373/.439/.492 slash line through 17 games in August. FantasyScore players shouldn't view Hanigan ($3,100, 6.2% of cap) as anything more than a low-priced flier Monday.

Red Sox | Blake Swihart inserted into lineup

Sat, 29 Aug 2015 11:55:41 -0700

Boston Red Sox C Ryan Hanigan (calf) has been scratched from the lineup against the New York Mets Saturday, Aug. 29, because of tightness in his calf. C Blake Swihart will start behind the plate and bat sixth.

Fantasy Tip: Remove Hanigan ($3,100, 6.2% of cap) from all fantasy lineups. Swihart ($2,800, 5.6% of cap) is batting .365 with a home run and nine RBIs during the month of August and is a decent value option in FantasyScore this afternoon.

Red Sox | No Blake Swihart vs. White Sox

Tue, 25 Aug 2015 15:33:30 -0700

Boston Red Sox C Blake Swihart is not in the starting lineup Tuesday, Aug. 25. C Ryan Hanigan is starting behind the plate and batting seventh against Chicago White Sox SP Jose Quintana Tuesday.

Fantasy Tip: Make sure to avoid Swihart ($2,800, 5.6% of cap) in all fantasy formats Tuesday. He has turned up his production over the past few months, but especially in August. Swihart owns a .370/.420/.457 slash line for the month. Hanigan ($3,100, 6.2% of cap) should be viewed as nothing more than a desperation source of cap relief at FantasyScore Tuesday.
