Red Sox | Blake Swihart to have ankle immobilized

Sun, 05 Jun 2016 14:00:22 -0700

Boston Red Sox C Blake Swihart (ankle) will have his ankle immobilized for the next two weeks. Manager John Farrell said Swihart has a severe ankle sprain.

Fantasy Tip: Either way you slice it, this is not good for the Red Sox' catching depth and the outfield also takes a hit as well because the Red Sox were playing Swihart in left. With both Swihart and Ryan Hanigan on the DL, the value of Christian Vazquez just shot up. As a previous tip suggested, Chris Young is likely to see more playing time as a result of Swihart's injury issues, and Rusney Castillo could be a factor in some games as well. Disable Swihart for the time being and wait for further news on how long he will be out.

Red Sox | Xander Bogaerts likely to play Sunday

Sat, 23 Apr 2016 12:12:25 -0700

Updating a previous story, Boston Red Sox SS Xander Bogaerts (wrist) will likely return to the lineup for the series finale against the Houston Astros on Sunday, April 24, according to manager John Farrell.

Fantasy Tip: Owners already know Bogaerts isn't in the lineup Saturday, so he shouldn't be considered an option in fantasy for this afternoon's game. Although he is far from a lock to start Sunday night, the fact Farrell appears optimistic bodes well for an early-week return next week, even if he sits through the weekend.

Red Sox | Eduardo Rodriguez won't be ready

Tue, 15 Mar 2016 12:22:44 -0700

Boston Red Sox SP Eduardo Rodriguez (knee) will not be ready for the start of the season due to a knee injury, as manager John Farrell says he "has to go through spring training."

Fantasy Tip: You can push Rodriguez off your draft boards for now and pick him up later on as a free agent. In the meantime, Henry Owens and Steven Wright may have a shot at a starting position.

Red Sox | Justin Masterson staying in bullpen

Thu, 16 Jul 2015 18:13:29 -0700

Boston Red Sox SP Justin Masterson is not a candidate to start Monday, July 20, or Tuesday, July 21, according to manager John Farrell.

Fantasy Tip: Masterson ($3,800, 7.6% of cap) has struggled all year, and he currently sports a 6.00 ERA. He had little value at FantasyScore when he was in the rotation, and he has no value while he is pitching out of the bullpen.

Red Sox | Rusney Castillo staying in minors?

Wed, 20 May 2015 13:41:22 -0700

Boston Red Sox OF Rusney Castillo is staying with Class AAA Pawtucket for the time being. Manager John Farrell said "nothing is imminent" regarding Castillo coming to Boston.

Fantasy Tip: Yes, the Red Sox spent an awful lot to lock up Castillo's services, but the team wants to make sure he is ready before throwing him onto the field. If you have Castillo, keep him stashed away in a deeper league.
