Red Sox | Mike Napoli's flexing his muscles

Sat, 23 May 2015 20:22:46 -0700

Boston Red Sox 1B Mike Napoli went 2-for-3 with two home runs, three RBIs, two runs scored and a walk in an 8-3 win over the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim Saturday, May 23, and he has four home runs in his last five games.

Fantasy Tip: Napoli ($3,100, 6.2% of cap) is still hitting just .193 on the year, and he remains a boom-or-bust option at FantasyScore.

Red Sox | Mike Napoli excels against Angels

Fri, 22 May 2015 09:43:03 -0700

Boston Red Sox 1B Mike Napoli has a slash line of .321/.439/.667 in 44 career games against the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim, who he faces this weekend.

Fantasy Tip: Napoli ($3,100, 6.2% of cap) may have good career numbers against the Halos, but he hasn't been on point this year (.178-4-13). He does, however, have a .571 average (4-for-7) with a home run and three RBI in his career against tonight's starter, Garrett Richards. Still, with Richards returning to his pre-injury form of 2014, Napoli looks like a weak play.

Red Sox | Mike Napoli slumping

Mon, 18 May 2015 14:14:33 -0700

Boston Red Sox 1B Mike Napoli is 2-for-18 after hitting a home run last Sunday, and his average is currently .162 with a .551 OPS.

Fantasy Tip: Napoli ($3,100, 6.2% of cap) should be avoided at FantasyScore until we see him start turning things around at the plate and breaking out of his slump.

Red Sox | Mike Napoli out Saturday

Sat, 16 May 2015 15:51:37 -0700

Boston Red Sox 1B Mike Napoli is out of the starting lineup Saturday, May 16, against the Seattle Mariners and SP Felix Hernandez.

Fantasy Tip: Napoli ($3,100, 6.2% of cap) is 4-for-his-last-28 and he shouldn't have been considered against the dominant King Felix. FantasyScore owners will need to wait for Napoli to heat up.

Red Sox | Boston terrible against southpaws

Wed, 13 May 2015 11:36:09 -0700

The Boston Red Sox are hitting a meager .188 against left-handed pitchers this year, which is dead last in all of baseball, and they have a .638 OPS (ranked 26th) against lefties. OF Hanley Ramirez is about the only hitter on the team succeeded against lefties, going 8-for-24 (.333) with four home runs. 1B Mike Napoli is .240 against lefties this year, while SS Xander Bogaerts is 5-for-25 with zero RBI. DH David Ortiz has five hits in 34 at-bats, and 3B Pablo Sandoval is just 2-for-34 batting from the right side as a switch hitter. The Red Sox will face three left-handed pitchers when they face off against the Seattle Mariners this weekend.

Fantasy Tip: You'll obviously want to avoid most Red Sox players when they face left-handed hurlers, at least for the foreseeable future. Also, all lefty pitchers should at least be considered at FantasyScore when facing Boston, beginning with Roenis Elias ($4,000, 8.0% of cap) as a sleeper pick tomorrow.

Red Sox | Mike Napoli not in starting lineup

Wed, 13 May 2015 09:50:16 -0700

Boston Red Sox 1B Mike Napoli is not in the starting lineup Wednesday, May 13. OF Daniel Nava is starting at first base and hitting seventh in the batting order against Oakland Athletics SP Sonny Gray.

Fantasy Tip: Nava ($1,800, 3.6% of cap) is hitting just .136 (6-for-44) with no home runs and six RBI this year, and with Gray holding lefty hitters to a .189/.277/.244 slash line in 2015, Nava becomes a commodity to avoid at FantasyScore this afternoon.

Red Sox | Mike Napoli hitless in return

Wed, 29 Apr 2015 21:43:41 -0700

Boston Red Sox 1B Mike Napoli (illness) returned to the starting lineup Wednesday, April 29, against the Toronto Blue Jays.

Fantasy Tip: Napoli was hitless in three at-bats, dropping his average to .162. FantasyScore owners should avoid Naps ($3,100; or 6.2% of cap) until he can get untracked and show off a little more power.

Red Sox | Mike Napoli back in

Wed, 29 Apr 2015 13:14:49 -0700

Boston Red Sox 1B Mike Napoli (illness) is back in the lineup starting at first base and hitting sixth in the batting order against Toronto Blue Jays SP R.A. Dickey Wednesday, April 29.

Fantasy Tip: Napoli ($3,100, 6.2% of cap) is off to a slow start in 2015, hitting only .169 (11-for-65) with one home run and four RBI, and it's usually unwise to run with a player in daily games that's been ill recently. Napoli, however, is 6-for-18 (.333) in his career against Dickey.

Red Sox | Mike Napoli out another few days

Tue, 28 Apr 2015 14:15:13 -0700

Boston Red Sox 1B Mike Napoli (illness) is contagious and will be out another few days, according to manager John Farrell.

Fantasy Tip: Napoli ($2,900, 5.8% of cap) should be avoided at FantasyScore for the next couple of days. Daniel Nava ($1,800, 3.6% of cap) is a low-price, low-end FantasyScore option with Napoli out. Nava should continue to see playing time when Napoli returns, too, with Shane Victorino (hamstring) on the DL.

Red Sox | Mike Napoli still sick

Tue, 28 Apr 2015 11:19:06 -0700

Boston Red Sox 1B Mike Napoli (illness) remains out of the starting lineup Tuesday, April 28. OF Daniel Nava is starting at first base again and hitting sixth in the batting order against Toronto Blue Jays SP Drew Hutchison.

Fantasy Tip: Nava ($1,800, 3.6% of cap) hasn't done much in 2015 yet, hitting only .167 (6-for-36) with six RBI. He hit righties well in 2014, though, going 88-for-300 (.293) with all four of his home runs. Nava is an under-the-radar FantasyScore selection while hitting in the middle of a potent lineup.
