Red Sox | David Ortiz takes a seat

Fri, 27 May 2016 13:24:35 -0700

Boston Red Sox 1B David Ortiz is not in the starting lineup Friday, May 27. 1B Hanley Ramirez is serving as the designated hitter, while 3B Travis Shaw moves over to first base and is batting cleanup against Toronto Blue Jays SP Aaron Sanchez. INF Marco Hernandez draws a start at the hot corner and is hitting seventh.

Fantasy Tip: It looks to be just a normal off day for Papi. Make sure to replace him in your daily lineups. Han-Ram and Shaw have been very consistent producers for Boston all year and should remain excellent plays. Hernandez is a true dart throw as a desperation flier in daily games tonight.

Red Sox | Travis Shaw not playing Tuesday

Tue, 24 May 2016 12:18:59 -0700

Boston Red Sox 3B Travis Shaw is not in the starting lineup Tuesday, May 24. 2B Josh Rutledge is starting at the hot corner and is hitting eighth against Colorado Rockies SP Jorge De La Rosa.

Fantasy Tip: Rutledge has a nice matchup against a struggling pitcher in his first start off the DL, but it's hard to trust the light-hitting second baseman in any format. He has 13 hits in 35 at-bats (.371) this year but has a career .265 average and has never reached double-digit home runs in his five-year career.

Red Sox | David Ortiz not starting

Sun, 15 May 2016 09:10:08 -0700

Boston Red Sox 1B David Ortiz is not in the starting lineup against Houston Astros SP Chris Devenski Sunday, May 15. 3B Travis Shaw will start at first base, while 1B Hanley Ramirez will serve as the designated hitter. 2B Josh Rutledge will start at third base and is batting seventh in the lineup.

Fantasy Tip: Ramirez and Shaw have played well and should be starters in all fantasy leagues. Rutledge has only one hit in his last nine at-bats and is not a great option for most owners.

Red Sox | Travis Shaw much better at home

Wed, 11 May 2016 09:57:26 -0700

Boston Red Sox 3B Travis Shaw has a slash line of .343/.391/.624 in 50 career home games as opposed to .229/.299/.380 in 48 career road games.

Fantasy Tip: Shaw is red-hot at the plate and had three hits, a home run and five RBI in the win Tuesday night. He's facing a weak pitcher at home Wednesday, too, so continue to keep him in starting lineups everywhere.

Red Sox | Travis Shaw matches career best

Tue, 10 May 2016 20:29:53 -0700

Boston Red Sox 3B Travis Shaw went 3-for-4 with a double and a three-run home run Tuesday, May 10, against the Oakland Athletics. He matched a career high with five RBIs.

Fantasy Tip: Shaw is enjoying quite the season so far, hitting .322 with four homers and 23 RBIs. He has emerged as a must-start in all fantasy formats and DFS play due to his run-producing potential.

Red Sox | David Ortiz takes a seat

Tue, 10 May 2016 12:14:10 -0700

Boston Red Sox 1B David Ortiz is not in the starting lineup against Oakland Athletics left-handed SP Sean Manaea Tuesday, May 10. 2B Josh Rutledge draws into the lineup at second base and is hitting sixth. 1B Hanley Ramirez is serving as the designated hitter and batting cleanup, while 3B Travis Shaw moves across the diamond to first base.

Fantasy Tip: Ortiz is just receiving a breather. Rutledge has seven hits in 14 at-bats but doesn't give you much hope for power, as he's never reached double-digit long balls in a single season. He's a low-end desperation play in daily leagues. Ramirez and Shaw continue to produce at a high level and are solid picks in any fantasy format this evening.

Red Sox | No David Ortiz Monday

Mon, 25 Apr 2016 13:41:31 -0700

Boston Red Sox 1B David Ortiz is not in the starting lineup in a National League park Monday, April 25. 3B Travis Shaw moves over to first base and is hitting cleanup, while 2B Josh Rutledge draws the start at the hot corner and is batting fifth against Atlanta Braves SP Julio Teheran.

Fantasy Tip: Ortiz may only start one game against Atlanta at first base during the series, so make sure to remove him from your lineups tonight. Shaw receives a slight daily boost hitting cleanup against a pitcher that has been shaky to begin the year. Rutledge is a deep sleeper option for daily formats with three hits in just five at-bats to start the year.

Red Sox | Travis Shaw continues streak

Mon, 18 Apr 2016 15:26:43 -0700

Boston Red Sox 3B Travis Shaw went 2-for-4 with a run scored, an RBI and a double Monday, April 18, against the Toronto Blue Jays. It was his fourth straight game in which he drove in at least one run.

Fantasy Tip: Shaw has seemingly picked up where he left off as a rookie, having logged a .342/.432/.553 slash line in the early going. With Pablo Sandoval far away from the hot corner, Shaw has no concerns about his status as the club's starting third baseman, and therefore should continue to produce. He shouldn't be on any waiver wires.

Red Sox | Pablo Sandoval receives start

Sat, 09 Apr 2016 07:08:40 -0700

Boston Red Sox 3B Pablo Sandoval will start at third base and is batting sixth against Toronto Blue Jays SP R.A. Dickey Saturday, April 9. 3B Travis Shaw is starting at first base and is batting fourth.

Fantasy Tip: Sandoval has received only one at-bat this season and likely will not receive regular playing time early in the season. Owners in most leagues should be able to find better candidates for their lineups. Shaw has gone 4-for-9 in three games and could be an option in some deeper leagues.

Red Sox | Travis Shaw hitting sixth

Mon, 04 Apr 2016 08:58:58 -0700

Boston Red Sox 3B Travis Shaw is hitting sixth Monday, April 4, in the season opener against the Cleveland Indians.

Fantasy Tip: Shaw is hitting behind David Ortiz and Hanley Ramirez in a nice spot to drive in runs. If he went undrafted, give him a look in most formats.
