Tue, 05 Jul 2016 05:14:20 -0700
Boston Red Sox C Christian Vazquez was sent to Class AAA Pawtucket on Monday, July 4.
Fantasy Tip: This move comes as no surprise, as Sandy Leon's emergence at the plate and the return of Ryan Hanigan combined to squeeze Vazquez's at-bats. It's safe to drop Vazquez in some formats, although you may want to stash Vazquez in the deepest leagues in the event he is traded or an injury takes place.

Boston Red Sox OF Brock Holt is back in the starting lineup against Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim SP Matt Shoemaker Sunday, July 3, batting seventh. In addition, C Sandy Leon will start behind the plate and bat eighth, with INF Marco Hernandez playing third base and batting ninth. C Christian Vazquez and 3B Travis Shaw have the day off.
Fantasy Tip: Holt went 2-for-4 with two doubles, an RBI and a run scored in his first game back from the disabled list Friday, July 1, after being sidelined with a concussion, so it is safe to resume using him in all fantasy formats. Leon is 14-for-31 (.452) with four doubles, a home run and six RBI through 31 at-bats this season, while Hernandez is 5-for-15 at the plate over the past week, making them worthy of consideration for daily fantasy lineups as inexpensive sources of offense.

Boston Red Sox C Christian Vazquez is not in the starting lineup against Tampa Bay Rays SP Blake Snell Monday, June 27. C Sandy Leon will start at catcher and is batting eighth in the lineup.
Fantasy Tip: Leon went hitless in his last game but is still hitting .480 since joining the team. Leon can be a sleeper option in some daily fantasy leagues but is not a must-start option.

Boston Red Sox C Christian Vazquez is not in the starting lineup against Texas Rangers SP Martin Perez Sunday, June 26. C Sandy Leon will start at catcher and is batting eighth.

Boston Red Sox C Christian Vazquez could be in danger of losing his roster spot with C Ryan Hanigan (neck) nearing a return and C Sandy Leon swinging a bat well.
Fantasy Tip: The Red Sox have a glut at catcher when you also factor in Blake Swihart, although Swihart is getting more outfield work to make up for that. You may want to see which direction Boston goes at catcher before putting down a player for a daily or regular roster spot. Right now the situation is too fluid.

Boston Red Sox C Christian Vazquez is not in the starting lineup against Chicago White Sox SP Jose Quintana Wednesday, June 22. C Sandy Leon will start at catcher and is batting ninth in the lineup.
Fantasy Tip: Leon has gone 10-for-16 at the plate since being recalled earlier in the month. He is not the best fantasy option, but desperate owners in daily fantasy leagues could consider using him.

Boston Red Sox C Christian Vazquez is back in the starting lineup versus Seattle Mariners SP Adrian Sampson Saturday, June 18, batting ninth.
