Red Sox | No Blake Swihart against Philly

Fri, 04 Sep 2015 12:51:09 -0700

Boston Red Sox C Blake Swihart is not in the starting lineup Friday, Sept. 4. C Ryan Hanigan is starting behind the plate and batting eighth against Philadelphia Phillies SP Adam Morgan Friday.

Fantasy Tip: Swihart ($3,200, 6.4% of cap) owns a .411/.492/.554 slash line with 17 runs and nine RBI over his past 15 games, as the rookie is blossoming into a solid catcher option in all fantasy formats. Hanigan ($3,100, 6.2% of cap), meanwhile, offers little in the upside department, but he hit over .300 in August and owns a .359/.432/.462 line against lefties this season. FantasyScore players can view Hanigan as a relatively safe source of cap relief Friday.

Red Sox | Blake Swihart sitting out vs. Yankees

Mon, 31 Aug 2015 12:52:24 -0700

Boston Red Sox C Blake Swihart is not in the starting lineup Monday, Aug. 31. C Ryan Hanigan is starting behind the plate and batting eighth against New York Yankees SP Ivan Nova Monday.

Fantasy Tip: Make sure to avoid the surging Swihart ($2,800, 5.6% of cap) in all fantasy formats Monday. His seasonal stock is rising, as the rookie owns a .373/.439/.492 slash line through 17 games in August. FantasyScore players shouldn't view Hanigan ($3,100, 6.2% of cap) as anything more than a low-priced flier Monday.

Sat, 29 Aug 2015 11:55:41 -0700

Boston Red Sox C Ryan Hanigan (calf) has been scratched from the lineup against the New York Mets Saturday, Aug. 29, because of tightness in his calf. C Blake Swihart will start behind the plate and bat sixth.

Fantasy Tip: Remove Hanigan ($3,100, 6.2% of cap) from all fantasy lineups. Swihart ($2,800, 5.6% of cap) is batting .365 with a home run and nine RBIs during the month of August and is a decent value option in FantasyScore this afternoon.

Red Sox | Blake Swihart homers to help Boston win

Sat, 29 Aug 2015 00:17:57 -0700

Boston Red Sox C Blake Swihart smacked an inside-the-park homer Friday, Aug. 28, to help his team to a 6-5, 10-inning win over the New York Mets.

Fantasy Tip: Swihart ($2,800, 5.6% of cap) has had a rocky rookie season, as he got hurt just after earning the starting job back in the spring when Ryan Hanigan went down. He's had some decent games as of late, and this low price suggests he might be a solid FantasyScore option.

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.
