Red Sox | Ryan Hanigan injured

Sat, 02 May 2015 02:11:14 -0700

Boston Red Sox C Ryan Hanigan (hand) left the game against the New York Yankees Friday, May 1, with a broken knuckle that will require surgery. Hanigan is expected to miss a "lengthy" period of time, according to manager John Farrell.

Fantasy Tip: Hanigan ($2,300, 4.6% of cap) can be removed from all fantasy lineups. This is also noteworthy because the Red Sox are likely to call up Blake Swihart from the minors shortly, and Swihart is regarded as one of MLB's top catching prospects. Regular-league owners may want to act accordingly, and those in daily leagues will want to see what happens with Swihart before adding him.

Red Sox | Koji Uehara to come off DL

Mon, 13 Apr 2015 04:45:13 -0700

Boston Red Sox RP Koji Uehara (hamstring) will come off the 15-day disabled list Monday, April 13, as planned. Manager John Farrell has already made Uehara the closer once again.

Fantasy Tip: This will bring some stability to the Red Sox bullpen, which needs it after the hammering the pitching staff took Sunday, April 12, against the New York Yankees. Be careful with Uehara, however, as his injury history makes him more likely to be out.

Red Sox | Joe Kelly battles biceps soreness

Tue, 17 Mar 2015 12:30:57 -0700

Boston Red Sox SP Joe Kelly (biceps) is working through soreness in his biceps. Manager John Farrell said Kelly is feeling better but may have his next turn in the spring rotation pushed back.

Fantasy Tip: Farrell said he'd hoped to have Kelly throw 175-180 innings in the regular season, and that could still happen if Kelly doesn't have injuries like this act up. Kelly should be considered in later rounds of deeper leagues only.
