Red Sox | Rick Porcello lasts just two innings

Wed, 01 Jul 2015 16:30:35 -0700

Boston Red Sox SP Rick Porcello allowed seven runs on seven hits, including three home runs, during Boston's 11-2 loss to the Toronto Blue Jays Wednesday, July 1.

Fantasy Tip: Porcello ($3,900, 7.8% of cap) has four wins with a 6.08 ERA and a 1.40 WHIP. He cannot be started with confidence in any fantasy format and checks out as a desperation start at this point. In the majority of leagues, Porcello is replaceable.

Red Sox | Rick Porcello looks to recover

Tue, 30 Jun 2015 20:20:24 -0700

Boston Red Sox SP Rick Porcello is scheduled to start Wednesday, July 1, against the Toronto Blue Jays. He enters winless since May 16 and he has lost six straight decisions. However, he beat the Blue Jays in his only appearance this season, allowing just one run over seven innings April 29 in Toronto.

Fantasy Tip: Porcello ($3,900; or 7.8% of cap) is hard to trust given his poor run lately, but his appearance against the Blue Jays earlier might make him a decent mid-level play in FantasyScore.

Red Sox | Rick Porcello struggles again

Wed, 10 Jun 2015 19:44:59 -0700

Boston Red Sox SP Rick Porcello (4-6) lost his fourth consecutive start Wednesday, June 10, against the Baltimore Orioles. He allowed five runs and 10 hits over 5 1/3 innings, with no walks and five strikeouts.

Fantasy Tip: Porcello ($4,500, 9.0% of cap) has struggled mightily against the O's in particular this season, going 0-2 with a 9.37 ERA in three appearances. Avoid using him in FantasyScore for the foreseeable future.

Red Sox | Rick Porcello to start Game 2

Mon, 01 Jun 2015 20:22:49 -0700

Boston Red Sox SP Rick Porcello is scheduled to work the second game of a doubleheader Wednesday, June 3, against the Minnesota Twins.

Fantasy Tip: Porcello is 2-4 with a 5.45 ERA in 12 starts over 66 innings against the Twins since the start of the 2012 season. FantasyScore players should look elsewhere Wednesday night rather than risking $4,500 (or 9.0% of cap).

Red Sox | Rick Porcello not playing like an ace

Wed, 27 May 2015 19:02:20 -0700

Boston Red Sox SP Rick Porcello has allowed 13 earned runs over 11 and one-third innings in his last two starts. Porcello has allowed five home runs in his last three starts. Since Sept. 1, 2014, Porcello is 4-8 with a 5.60 ERA.

Fantasy Tip: Porcello's ($4,500, 9.0% of cap) 5.07 ERA is over a full run higher than his xFIP, but even with an ERA of 4.06, Porcello would be tough to trust. Porcello has a career high strikeout rate, but until he can limit his runs better, he should be avoided on FantasyScore.

Red Sox | Rick Porcello roughed up by Twins

Wed, 27 May 2015 16:02:06 -0700

Boston Red Sox SP Rick Porcello allowed six earned runs in seven innings in a loss to the Minnesota Twins Wednesday, May 27, and he has given up 13 earned runs in 11 1/3 innings in his last two starts after allowing just six earned runs in his previous 25 2/3 innings over four starts. "I'm leaving the ball up too much," Porcello said. He walked two and struck out two in seven innings and saw his ERA rise to 5.37 on the year.

Fantasy Tip: Porcello ($4,500, 9.0% of cap) isn't fooling many hitters right now, and he should be a very shaky FantasyScore play in his next outing, too. He's not worth the risk until he turns things around on the mound.

Red Sox | Rick Porcello ends team's skid

Tue, 05 May 2015 22:23:16 -0700

Boston Red Sox SP Rick Porcello scattered eight hits over seven scoreless innings in a win Tuesday, May 5, against the Tampa Bay Rays. He did not walk any batters while striking out six, helping the Red Sox snap a four-game losing streak.

Fantasy Tip: After posting two quality starts over his first four starts he has managed at back-to-back quality starts while lasting at least seven innings in each game. He was 1-2 with a 6.48 ERA in the first four, and 2-0 with a 0.64 ERA over his past two. Porcello ($4,400; 8.8% of cap) is a strong play in FantasyScore since he has six or more strikeouts in five straight outings.

Red Sox | Rick Porcello made adjustment

Fri, 24 Apr 2015 16:40:08 -0700

Boston Red Sox SP Rick Porcello focused on improving his sinker after allowing eight runs and 12 hits in five innings against the Baltimore Orioles Sunday, April 19. Porcello fixed his arm slot to make sure he stayed on line and had the right "whip" action with his arm.

Fantasy Tip: Porcello ($4,900, 9.8% of cap) wasn't an attractive FantasyScore option Friday night while facing the Orioles yet again.

Red Sox | Rick Porcello loses team debut

Wed, 08 Apr 2015 22:03:31 -0700

Boston Red Sox SP Rick Porcello allowed three earned runs, six hits and two walks with four strikeouts over six innings in a loss Wednesday, April 8, against the Philadelphia Phillies in his team debut.

Fantasy Tip: FantasyScore owners certainly expected more against a Phillies team which figures to be one of the worst in the league. At $6,400 (or 12.8% of cap) he isnít worth using in his next scheduled start Monday against a strong Washington Nationals lineup.

Red Sox | Rick Porcello signs extension

Mon, 06 Apr 2015 16:53:23 -0700

Boston Red Sox SP Rick Porcello signed a four-year contract extension worth $82.5 million Monday, April 6.

Fantasy Tip: Porcello ($6,400, 12.8% of cap) probably isn't a name that many are considering at FantasyScore in his first start of the season against the Philadelphia Phillies this week. However, with Philly sporting one of the weaker lineups in baseball in 2015, Porcello could be a sleeper worth going with in his season debut.
