Red Sox | No Blake Swihart vs. White Sox

Tue, 25 Aug 2015 15:33:30 -0700

Boston Red Sox C Blake Swihart is not in the starting lineup Tuesday, Aug. 25. C Ryan Hanigan is starting behind the plate and batting seventh against Chicago White Sox SP Jose Quintana Tuesday.

Fantasy Tip: Make sure to avoid Swihart ($2,800, 5.6% of cap) in all fantasy formats Tuesday. He has turned up his production over the past few months, but especially in August. Swihart owns a .370/.420/.457 slash line for the month. Hanigan ($3,100, 6.2% of cap) should be viewed as nothing more than a desperation source of cap relief at FantasyScore Tuesday.

Red Sox | Blake Swihart out again

Mon, 24 Aug 2015 13:43:33 -0700

Boston Red Sox C Blake Swihart is not in the lineup for the second straight game Monday, Aug. 24. C Ryan Hanigan is behind the dish again and is hitting ninth against Chicago White Sox SP Jeff Samardzija.

Fantasy Tip: Hanigan ($3,100, 6.2% of cap) has been seeing more playing time lately, and he's delivering with a .303 average (10-for-33) with a home run and three RBI. However, he's a bit costly for a backup catcher, and he's still a long shot to deliver for your daily squad.

Thu, 20 Aug 2015 14:22:25 -0700

Boston Red Sox C Blake Swihart is not in the starting lineup again Thursday, Aug. 20. C Ryan Hanigan is starting and hitting seventh against Kansas City Royals SP Danny Duffy.

Fantasy Tip: Hanigan ($3,100, 6.2% of cap) hit just his second home run of the season last night. Don't expect lightning to strike twice on back-to-back nights, though. Hanigan remains a weak catching option in daily games.

Red Sox | Blake Swihart sitting vs. Tribe

Mon, 17 Aug 2015 12:55:52 -0700

Boston Red Sox C Blake Swihart is not in the starting lineup Monday, Aug. 17. C Ryan Hanigan is starting behind the plate and batting eighth against Cleveland Indians SP Danny Salazar Monday.

Fantasy Tip: Since returning from injury Monday, July 20, Swihart ($2,800, 5.6% of cap) has a .279/.323/.377 slash line with 12 runs and seven RBI through 17 games. It isn't huge production, but it pushes the needle in cavernous mixed, AL-only and two-catcher leagues. Hanigan ($3,100, 6.2% of cap) barely pushes the fantasy needle, and you should aim to find better value at FantasyScore Monday.

Red Sox | Big game for Blake Swihart

Sat, 15 Aug 2015 17:52:03 -0700

Boston Red Sox C Blake Swihart went 4-for-5 with two doubles, three RBI, four runs scored and a walk in a 22-10 win over the Seattle Mariners Saturday, Aug. 15.

Fantasy Tip: Swihart ($2,800, 5.6% of cap) has been inconsistent in his first year with the Red Sox, but he has flashed his upside at times. If you are going to take a chance on him at FantasyScore, at least make sure he is facing a right-handed pitcher.

Red Sox | Blake Swihart sitting vs. Mariners

Fri, 14 Aug 2015 13:36:31 -0700

Boston Red Sox C Blake Swihart is not in the starting lineup Friday, Aug. 14. C Ryan Hanigan is starting behind the plate and batting eighth against Seattle Mariners SP Mike Montgomery Friday.

Fantasy Tip: Make sure to avoid Swihart ($2,800, 5.6% of cap) at FantasyScore Friday. The rookie has been hitting better of late, as he owns a .284/.293/.378 slash line over his past 75 plate appearances. Still, he is a low-end catcher in all fantasy formats and not worth a roster spot in the majority of leagues. Hanigan ($3,100, 6.2% of cap) barely pushes the fantasy needle, and you should likely aim higher in daily contests Friday.

Red Sox | Blake Swihart sitting vs. Detroit

Fri, 07 Aug 2015 13:14:42 -0700

Boston Red Sox C Blake Swihart is not in the starting lineup Friday, Aug. 7. C Ryan Hanigan is starting behind the plate and hitting eighth against Detroit Tigers SP Daniel Norris Friday.

Fantasy Tip: Make sure to avoid Swihart ($2,800, 5.6% of cap) in all fantasy formats Friday. Since returning from the disabled list Tuesday, July 20, he is 8-for-35 with five runs, four RBI and a .593 OPS. You should aim higher in the majority of mixed leagues. Hanigan ($3,100, 6.2% of cap) is nothing more than a desperation flier for FantasyScore contests Friday.

Red Sox | Blake Swihart resting

Thu, 06 Aug 2015 12:21:06 -0700

Boston Red Sox C Blake Swihart is not in the starting lineup Thursday, Aug. 6. C Ryan Hanigan is behind the plate and is hitting seventh against New York Yankees SP CC Sabathia.

Fantasy Tip: Hanigan ($3,100, 6.2% of cap) does have one career home run off Sabathia in 14 at-bats, but he remains a pretty weak offensive force as Boston's backup, and he's a low-end catching option on FantasyScore.

Red Sox | Blake Swihart not catching

Wed, 29 Jul 2015 14:41:19 -0700

Boston Red Sox C Blake Swihart is not in the starting lineup Wednesday, July 29. C Ryan Hanigan is behind the plate and is hitting eighth against Chicago White Sox SP Jose Quintana.

Fantasy Tip: Hanigan ($3,100, 6.2% of cap) is rather pricey at FantasyScore for a catcher hitting only .230 (23-for-100) with one home run and nine RBI. Look to avoid him tonight.
