Red Sox | Blake Swihart slows down rehab

Thu, 21 Jul 2016 17:28:02 -0700

Boston Red Sox C Blake Swihart (ankle) has needed to "quiet down" his rehab, according to manager John Farrell. He felt effects after cutting while running.

Fantasy Tip: Swihart hasn't played since June 4, when he sustained a sprained left ankle, and now it appears it's becoming more difficult for him to get back on the field. Pegged a breakout candidate by some, it looks like that potential emergence will have to wait until next season. He slashed .258/.365/.355 in 19 ballgames before going down with the injury.

Red Sox | Blake Swihart out 6-8 weeks

Thu, 16 Jun 2016 17:03:18 -0700

Boston Red Sox C/OF Blake Swihart (ankle) is expected to miss six to eight weeks, which means he might not return until August, according to president of baseball operations Dave Dombrowski. Swihart will be re-evaluated soon. Dombrowski said Swihart is in a walking boot.

Fantasy Tip: Swihart had been seeing regular playing time in left field with Brock Holt (concussion) on the DL. He was only hitting .258 with no home runs and five RBI, and he should only be stashed in deeper AL-only leagues. In the meantime, Chris Young (.286-6-15) has played well with everyday playing time and deserves consideration in most mixed leagues hitting in this powerful offense.

Red Sox | No timetable for Blake Swihart

Tue, 07 Jun 2016 17:09:16 -0700

Boston Red Sox C/OF Blake Swihart (ankle) has no timetable for a return, according to manager John Farrell. Swihart is currently in a cast and will be re-evaluated in two weeks.

Fantasy Tip: Swihart is dealing with a severe ankle sprain and could be sidelined well into the second half of the season. He was hitting .258 with no home runs and five RBI, so his value had been limited to cavernous mixed and AL-only leagues. Dropping him in most formats is advised if you don't have the room. Chris Young should see the biggest boost in value from an increase in playing time in left field.

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 | Blake Swihart placed on disabled list

Sun, 05 Jun 2016 09:00:11 -0700

Boston Red Sox OF/C Blake Swihart (ankle) has been placed on the 15-day disabled list because of a sprained left ankle. He sustained the injury after slamming into the left-field wall in a game versus the Toronto Blue Jays Saturday, June 4, while trying to catch a fly ball.

Fantasy Tip: OF Rusney Castillo has been recalled from Class AAA Pawtucket but OF Chris Young appears likely to see the bulk of the playing time in left field for now. He's worth owning in AL-only fantasy formats.
