From -- thru  --


Red Sox | Mookie Betts, David Ortiz resting Sunday

Sun, 24 Jul 2016 07:39:04 -0700

Boston Red Sox OF Mookie Betts (knee) and DH David Ortiz are not in the starting lineup against Minnesota Twins SP Tommy Milone Sunday, July 24. 1B Hanley Ramirez will bat cleanup and serve as the designated hitter, with INF Travis Shaw batting seventh and playing first base and OF Bryce Brentz playing left field and batting eighth. In addition, C Ryan Hanigan will bat ninth and start behind the plate.

Fantasy Tip: Shaw is just 2-for-17 (.118) over the past seven days, while Hanigan is 2-for-12 (.167) during the month of July. Both players should be avoided in all fantasy formats. Brentz is batting .308 versus southpaws this season and is worthy of consideration as a value play in DFS.

Red Sox | Travis Shaw, Brock Holt out

Sat, 16 Jul 2016 09:24:14 -0700

Boston Red Sox 3B Travis Shaw and OF Brock Holt are not in the starting lineup against New York Yankees SP CC Sabathia Saturday, July 16. 3B Aaron Hill will start at third base and is batting seventh. OF Bryce Brentz will start in left field and is batting eighth.

Fantasy Tip: Hill has at least one hit in six of his last seven games and six RBI during that span. He should be an attractive option for owners in daily fantasy leagues. He is hitting .294 with four RBI this month and could also be used in daily leagues.

Red Sox | Brock Holt suffers apparent foot injury

Fri, 08 Jul 2016 17:28:14 -0700

Boston Red Sox OF Brock Holt (foot) suffered an apparent left foot injury while sliding into second base during the bottom of the fourth inning versus the Tampa Bay Rays Friday, July 8. He was replaced in the game by OF Bryce Brentz.

Fantasy Tip: The severity of Holt's injury is unknown, so check back occasionally for further updates on his condition. Holt was 1-for-2 with a stolen base before leaving Friday's game and was 7-for-19 (.368) since returning from the disabled list last week after suffering a concussion. If he is forced to miss multiple games, expect Brentz to see the bulk of the action in left field for the BoSox.

Fantasy Tip: Through eight games since being promoted, Brentz is batting .333 (10-for-30) with a home run and six RBI. He's worth considering as a value play in DFS on days when his name is penciled in the lineup.

Red Sox | Brock Holt sitting vs. Texas

Wed, 06 Jul 2016 12:12:21 -0700

Boston Red Sox INF/OF Brock Holt is not in the starting lineup Wednesday, July 6. OF Bryce Brentz is starting in left field and batting seventh against Texas Rangers SP Martin Perez Wednesday.

Fantasy Tip: Holt sits out most games against southpaws, which is a slight hit to his fantasy stock. He's 6-for-17 with six runs and three RBI since returning from the disabled list Friday, July 1, and Holt is a valuable fantasy asset because of his eligibility all over the diamond. He's even more appealing while hitting well in a powerful lineup. Brentz is a potential low-priced flier for daily contests Wednesday, but his seasonal value is extremely low.

Red Sox | David Ortiz receives day off

Sun, 26 Jun 2016 10:46:45 -0700

Boston Red Sox 1B David Ortiz is not in the starting lineup against Texas Rangers SP Martin Perez Sunday, June 26. OF Bryce Brentz will serve as the designated hitter, while OF Ryan LaMarre will start in left field and is batting ninth.

Fantasy Tip: LaMarre only has two at-bats since being recalled, so owners should not consider him an option at this point. Brentz has gone 2-for-8 since joining the team and can be avoided at this point.

Red Sox | Bryce Brentz recalled from Pawtucket

Fri, 24 Jun 2016 13:19:26 -0700

Boston Red Sox OF Bryce Brentz was recalled from Class AAA Pawtucket Friday, June 24. He is starting in left field and batting seventh against Texas Rangers SP Nick Martinez Friday.

Fantasy Tip: Brentz could see a fleeting opportunity with the rash of injuries in the Boston outfield. He posted a respectable .278/.307/.438 slash line through 150 plate appearances with Pawtucket, but his fantasy value is limited to cavernous mixed and AL-only leagues at this point.
