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.

Red Sox | Blake Swihart sitting out vs. Jays

Mon, 29 Jun 2015 13:19:17 -0700

Boston Red Sox C Blake Swihart is not in the starting lineup Monday, June 29. C Sandy Leon is starting behind the plate and batting eighth against Toronto Blue Jays SP R.A. Dickey Monday.

Fantasy Tip: Swihart ($2,800, 5.6% of cap) has picked up at the dish. He currently sports a five-game hitting streak and .871 OPS over his past 10 outings. He is a low-end catcher option in AL-only, cavernous mixed and two-catcher formats. Leon ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) is 12-for-75 this season, and at this point, he shouldn't be targeted in any fantasy format.

Fantasy Tip: Swihart ($2,800, 5.6% of cap) likely will return to the lineup in the near future. Leon ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) is hitting only .100 this month and should not be a starting option on FantasyScore.

Red Sox | Blake Swihart suffers foot injury

Sat, 20 Jun 2015 19:20:32 -0700

Boston Red Sox C Blake Swihart (foot) exited in the fifth inning against the Kansas City Royals with an apparent foot injury Saturday, June 20. He was replaced by C Sandy Leon.

Fantasy Tip: Swihart ($2,800, 5.6% of cap) was 2-for-2 with a double before being lifted, but he has been a fringe option at best since joining the Red Sox. He definitely needs to be avoided until he is 100% healthy. Leon ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) is hitting just .161 this year and has no value at FantasyScore if he sees additional starts going forward.

Red Sox | Blake Swihart sitting vs. Braves

Thu, 18 Jun 2015 14:14:37 -0700

Boston Red Sox C Blake Swihart is not in the starting lineup Thursday, June 18. C Sandy Leon is starting behind the plate and batting eighth against Atlanta Braves SP Shelby Miller Thursday.

Fantasy Tip: Swihart ($2,800, 5.6% of cap) has been underwhelming with a .216 batting average and .551 OPS through 119 plate appearances this season. FantasyScore players will want to note Leon ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) has been worse, though, with a .158 average and .414 OPS. Look elsewhere for your backstop in daily contests Thursday.
