Red Sox | David Price moves to 7-1

Tue, 24 May 2016 20:40:41 -0700

Boston Red Sox SP David Price upped his record to 7-1 after defeating the Colorado Rockies Tuesday, May 24. He worked seven solid innings, allowing three runs on five hits and one walk. He also recorded six strikeouts.

Fantasy Tip: While his owners probably aren't happy with his 5.34 ERA, Price is starting to look like his old consistent self again, as this was his third straight quality start after contributing only three such outings in his first seven assignments of the season. Now having a 76-to-15 K/BB ratio in 62 1/3 innings, it seems inevitable that Price will bring his ERA down considerably, and he remains an elite option in all leagues.

Rockies | Ryan Raburn in lineup Tuesday

Tue, 24 May 2016 14:25:16 -0700

Colorado Rockies OF Ryan Raburn is in the starting lineup Tuesday, May 24, against the Boston Red Sox as a designated hitter. Raburn will hit sixth against Red Sox SP David Price. His on-base plus slugging number is 1.061 against left-handed pitching.

Fantasy Tip: Raburn is hitting .300-5-12 overall, and his other stats rise against left-handed pitching. He should be given strong fantasy consideration against Price Tuesday night for that reason.

Rockies | Tony Wolters not in Tuesday lineup

Tue, 24 May 2016 13:19:17 -0700

Colorado Rockies C Tony Wolters is not in the starting lineup Tuesday, May 24, against the Boston Red Sox. C Dustin Garneau is batting eighth against Red Sox SP David Price.

Fantasy Tip: Wolters is out mainly due to the left vs. left matchup, although Wolters and Garneau are in a platoon situation and neither one catches a majority of games. Garneau doesn't have much fantasy value, so you should look elsewhere for a catcher.

Red Sox | David Price allowing hard contact

Fri, 20 May 2016 16:56:54 -0700

Boston Red Sox SP David Price has a normal strikeout rate and has given up just four home runs to go along with a FIP of 2.55. However, a 29.1% line-drive rate is troubling, and he has become a bit vulnerable to having balls squared up against him, according to FanGraphs' Tony Blengino. Of his fly balls allowed this year, 16.7% have exceeded an exit velocity of 105 mph. Just 7.0% of all MLB fly balls have been hit at 105 mph or harder this year. After several nice outings, he's lowered his ERA to 5.53.

Fantasy Tip: Price was struggling with some mechanical problems, and he has seemed to fix them in his last couple of starts. That could explain much of the hard contact he allowed in the first month. More positive regression is likely in store, so if you want to buy low, that time is quickly passing. Price's elite 11.4 K/9 rate should convince his owners to sit tight and enjoy better days ahead.

Red Sox | David Price has solid outing

Wed, 18 May 2016 22:44:23 -0700

Boston Red Sox SP David Price allowed two runs on five hits in 7 1/3 innings in the second game of a doubleheader against the Kansas City Royals Wednesday, May 18, to pick up his sixth win of the season. He struck out five batters and walked one during the game.

Fantasy Tip: Price has allowed only three runs in his last two starts and has won four of his last five starts. Price is scheduled to face the Colorado Rockies in his next start and is an attractive option in most leagues.

Red Sox | David Price fans 12 in win

Thu, 12 May 2016 19:28:57 -0700

Boston Red Sox SP David Price allowed one run on six hits while walking one and striking out 12 over 6 2/3 innings in a win over the Houston Astros Thursday, May 12, in his first start since correcting an issue with his mechanics.

Fantasy Tip: Fantasy owners can only hope that the issue with his mechanics was the cause of his rough start. Keep starting him whenever he takes the mound, especially after this encouraging outing.

Red Sox | David Price's velocity not a concern

Wed, 11 May 2016 15:00:00 -0700

Boston Red Sox manager John Farrell said he's not overly concerned with SP David Price's drop in velocity of late. Price has been down to around 91 or 92 mph on his fastball this year after typically sitting in the mid-90s. "The location of pitches: that's been the biggest thing. Yes, that's timing, that's being able to stay in your lane, so to speak, whether it's going to your glove side or arm side when delivering a pitch. That has been inconsistent," Farrell said. Price is 4-1 but has a 6.75 ERA in seven starts.

Fantasy Tip: Price is working through some mechanical adjustments, which could be the cause of his slight drop in velocity. Price is a buy-low candidate with better days ahead of him, say his underlying stats. An 11.53 K/9 and 54.2% strand rate are encouraging signs that he'll turn things around, not to mention an FIP of 2.95.

Red Sox | David Price corrects mechanical glitch

Tue, 10 May 2016 17:45:53 -0700

Boston Red Sox SP David Price may have fixed a glitch in his delivery, with help from 2B Dustin Pedroia, in which his hands aren't moving in sync with his legs. "It's something I had gotten away from, I think, last year," Price said. "If you go back and watch the video last year, you're not going to see that. I had good success last year, but I didn't have that rhythm earlier on this year. It's definitely frustrating to know that it can be something small."

Fantasy Tip: Well this would be a huge relief for his fantasy owners, as Price has been a pretty big disappointment thus far in his first year in Boston. While he's 4-0, the former Cy Young winner has also produced an ugly 6.75 ERA and 1.38 WHIP, while surrendering at least five runs in four of his seven starts. Everything else seems to be OK, as Price has registered a nifty 53-to-12 K/BB ratio in his 41 1/3 innings of work, but hopefully this mechanical adjustment is enough to get him back into normal form.

Yankees | Brian McCann not starting Sunday

Sun, 01 May 2016 16:04:31 -0700

New York Yankees C Brian McCann will not start the Sunday, May 1, game against the Boston Red Sox. C Austin Romine is starting and hitting ninth against Red Sox SP David Price.

Fantasy Tip: It's a classic case of lefty vs. lefty, so McCann will sit despite a .345 batting average. Romine has just one at-bat against Price, so sit him against the Red Sox. He is untested in terms of fantasy value.

Yankees | Didi Gregorius out Sunday

Sun, 01 May 2016 16:01:42 -0700

New York Yankees SS Didi Gregorius is not starting Sunday, May 1, against the Boston Red Sox. SS Ronald Torreyes is in the lineup and will bat eighth against Red Sox SP David Price.

Fantasy Tip: With Price pitching for the Red Sox, Gregorius will take a seat and avoid the lefty vs. lefty matchup. Torreyes has no batting average against Price, so for the moment he has little fantasy value.
