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.

Red Sox | Blake Swihart catching Saturday

Sat, 25 Jul 2015 11:03:43 -0700

Boston Red Sox C Blake Swihart will bat ninth against Detroit Tigers SP Alfredo Simon Saturday, July 25. C Ryan Hanigan is getting the day off.

Fantasy Tip: Swihart ($2,800, 5.6% of cap) is 1-for-6 with two runs scored in two games since coming off the disabled list. However, he is batting .273 during day games this season and makes an intriguing FantasyScore sleeper option.

Fantasy Tip: Swihart ($2,800, 5.6% of cap) was hitting just .211 against lefties before going on the disabled list, and he should be avoided against a red-hot Heaney.

Red Sox | Blake Swihart returns to Red Sox

Mon, 20 Jul 2015 13:10:14 -0700

Boston Red Sox C Blake Swihart (foot) was activated from the 15-day disabled list Monday, July 20. The team also designated C Sandy Leon for assignment. Manager John Farrell said C Ryan Hanigan will remain the starting catcher, but Swihart will play more than a normal backup catcher.

Fantasy Tip: It appears like Swihart ($2,800, 5.6% of cap) will receive a couple of starts during the week for the time being. He picked up at least one hit in seven of his last nine games before being placed on the disabled list. Owners on FantasyScore could consider using Swihart when he is in the lineup.

Red Sox | Blake Swihart rehabbing

Mon, 13 Jul 2015 11:11:33 -0700

Boston Red Sox C Blake Swihart (foot) went 0-for-3 with two strikeouts as the designated hitter Saturday, July 11, for Class AAA Pawtucket. "He was here today getting early BP and throwing to the bases," manager John Farrell said. "He'll catch tomorrow. I think until he gets behind the plate, we'll get a better read on how that foot is feeling."

Fantasy Tip: Swihart ($2,800, 5.6% of cap) could be back for the second half of the season next weekend, and he'll likely return to a starting catching role. He's hitting .241 (32-for-133) but has just one home run and 11 RBI. He's more of a low-end catching commodity on FantasyScore.

Fri, 10 Jul 2015 15:47:15 -0700

Boston Red Sox C Blake Swihart (foot) will start a rehab assignment with Class AAA Pawtucket Friday, July 10.

Fantasy Tip: Swihart ($2,800, 5.6% of cap) should return to the starting catching role for Boston when he comes off the DL. He was hitting .241 (32-for-133) with just one home run and 11 RBI before his injury. Swihart had been a low-end catching option on FantasyScore.

Fri, 03 Jul 2015 14:29:31 -0700

Boston Red Sox C Blake Swihart (foot) was placed on the 15-day disabled list Friday, July 3, because of a foot injury.

Fantasy Tip: Ryan Hanigan probably will receive most of the starts while Swihart is sidelined but probably is not a good option on FantasyScore. Sandy Leon ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) could also receive more starts but should be avoided.

Fantasy Tip: Leon ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) should be avoided on FantasyScore today. He's hitting just .152 (12-for-79) with no home runs and three RBI in a backup role for Boston.

Red Sox | Blake Swihart sitting out vs. Jays

Mon, 29 Jun 2015 13:19:17 -0700

Boston Red Sox C Blake Swihart is not in the starting lineup Monday, June 29. C Sandy Leon is starting behind the plate and batting eighth against Toronto Blue Jays SP R.A. Dickey Monday.

Fantasy Tip: Swihart ($2,800, 5.6% of cap) has picked up at the dish. He currently sports a five-game hitting streak and .871 OPS over his past 10 outings. He is a low-end catcher option in AL-only, cavernous mixed and two-catcher formats. Leon ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) is 12-for-75 this season, and at this point, he shouldn't be targeted in any fantasy format.
