Boston Red Sox OF Mookie Betts (knee) is out of the lineup Saturday, July 23, with OF Michael Martinez hitting ninth. Manager John Farrell said nothing is structurally wrong with Betts. He is day to day, but he could miss some time.
Fantasy Tip: Martinez isn't a potent enough bat to use in fantasy, even against Ricky Nolasco. Keep an eye on what the Red Sox opt to do in Betts' absence. Chris Marrero could come up, and he'd be a matchup play.

Boston Red Sox OF Mookie Betts (knee) left the game against the Minnesota Twins Friday, July 22, because of right knee soreness. He is considered day-to-day and was replaced in right field by INF/OF Michael Martinez.
Fantasy Tip: Betts went 1-for-2 with a solo home run before leaving Friday's contest after the fourth inning. The 23-year-old is 8-for-14 with three homers in his last four games and is a viable option in all fantasy formats when healthy.

Cleveland Indians 3B Juan Uribe is back in the starting lineup against Detroit Tigers SP Justin Verlander Sunday, June 26, with INF Jose Ramirez playing second base and INF/OF Michael Martinez playing left field. 2B Jason Kipnis (illness) and OF Rajai Davis are receiving the day off.
Fantasy Tip: Uribe is hitting just .196 over the past four weeks and is not a recommended fantasy option this afternoon. Martinez is 6-for-13 (.462) with a home run and two RBI over the past two weeks and can be viewed as a productive source of salary cap relief in DFS.
