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.

Red Sox | Mike Napoli sitting out

Mon, 27 Apr 2015 11:34:47 -0700

Boston Red Sox 1B Mike Napoli is not in the starting lineup Monday, April 27.

Fantasy Tip: Napoli ($2,900, 5.8% of cap) has struggled so far this season, so he is likely receiving a day off. Daniel Nava ($1,800, 3.6% of cap) will be starting at first base but is not a great option on FantasyScore since he is only hitting .188 in 2015.

Red Sox | Mike Napoli out of lineup

Tue, 21 Apr 2015 14:56:27 -0700

Boston Red Sox 1B Mike Napoli is not in the starting lineup Tuesday, April 21, against Tampa Bay Rays SP Chris Archer.

Fantasy Tip: Daniel Nava ($1,800, 3.6% of cap) is starting at first base in place of Napoli. Nava should be given a look at FantasyScore after he hit .293 with all four of his home runs against right-handers in 2014. He also is 5-for-9 with a home run in his career against Archer.

Red Sox | Mike Napoli in starting lineup

Wed, 08 Apr 2015 12:10:16 -0700

Boston Red Sox 1B Mike Napoli will be the starting first baseman against the Philadelphia Phillies Wednesday, April 8.

Fantasy Tip: Napoli ($4,300, 8.6% of cap) saw a small drop in his stats in 2014 and will look to improve his play this season. Napoli could be a starting option for owners on FantasyScore since he will be batting in the middle of the batting order.

Red Sox | Mike Napoli strong to the ball

Fri, 03 Apr 2015 17:18:57 -0700

Boston Red Sox 1B Mike Napoli said the surgery he had on his right big toe in the offseason has allowed him to take a firmer step toward the ball at the plate.

Fantasy Tip: Napoli ($4,300, 8.6% of cap) hit his sixth spring homer Friday night, and he looks prime for a big season as a value pick in fantasy drafts this year. His matchup opening day against Cole Hamels and the Phillies is a tough one, but he has hit lefties significantly better in his career (.279) than righties (.249).

Red Sox | Mike Napoli to return to games

Mon, 23 Mar 2015 10:31:23 -0700

Boston Red Sox 1B Mike Napoli (ankle) took batting practice and pre-game workouts Monday, March 23, and he is expected to resume game action by the end of the week, according to manager John Farrell.

Fantasy Tip: Napoli's injury concerns at age 33 are definitely concerning, which is why he's probably nothing more than a late-round selection in mixed leagues. However, it's hard to find his kind of power that late, and he's also hitting in one of the league's better lineups.
