Red Sox | Travis Shaw reeling at the plate

Wed, 02 Sep 2015 15:30:33 -0700

Boston Red Sox 1B Travis Shaw is 2-for-29 with 11 strikeouts over his past nine games.

Fantasy Tip: Shaw ($3,600, 7.2% of cap) kicked off August with 15 runs, four doubles, six home runs, 12 RBI and a 1.267 OPS through his first 16 games of the month. However, his opponents clearly have a better game plan to attack him with, and Shaw hasn't responded. There is no guarantee he turns it around at the dish, either. He can be avoided in all formats at this point.

Red Sox | David Ortiz starting at first base

Sun, 30 Aug 2015 07:34:31 -0700

Boston Red Sox 1B David Ortiz is playing first base and batting fourth against New York Mets SP Noah Syndergaard Sunday, Aug. 30. 1B Travis Shaw is not in the starting lineup Sunday.

Fantasy Tip: Without a designated hitter option in the road series at New York, the Red Sox have swapped in Ortiz ($5,100, 10.2% of cap) at first base for two games. The veteran slugger has been on fire in August and owns a .345/.427/.679 slash line with seven home runs. In fact, Ortiz currently has exactly seven home runs in each of the past three months after hitting just six through April and May. He is a risky FantasyScore play Sunday, though. Shaw ($4,600, 9.2% of cap) will return to regular at-bats next week, and he is worth a look in the majority of seasonal leagues.

Red Sox | David Ortiz not in lineup Saturday

Sat, 29 Aug 2015 10:39:55 -0700

Boston Red Sox 1B David Ortiz is not in the starting lineup against New York Mets SP Jacob deGrom Saturday, Aug. 29. INF Travis Shaw will bat fifth and start at first base.

Fantasy Tip: With the Red Sox playing an interleague game in a National League stadium, Ortiz ($5,100, 10.2% of cap) finds himself riding the pine Saturday. After a hot start to the month of August, Shaw ($4,600, 9.2% of cap) is just 2-for-23 over the past week and shouldn't be used in FantasyScore cleanup.

Red Sox | Travis Shaw sitting against the Mets

Fri, 28 Aug 2015 12:15:45 -0700

Boston Red Sox 1B Travis Shaw is not in the starting lineup Friday, Aug. 28. 1B David Ortiz is playing first base and batting fourth against New York Mets SP Matt Harvey Friday.

Fantasy Tip: Without the option to utilize a designated hitter, Ortiz ($5,100, 10.2% of cap) is playing first base. The veteran has 14 runs, six home runs and 18 RBI with a .325/.414/.625 slash line through 22 games and August. He is a viable option at FantasyScore Friday, but Harvey ($9,400, 18.6% of cap) presents a tough matchup. Shaw ($4,600, 9.2% of cap) has been great for Boston and fantasy owners this month. He is worth owning in the majority of seasonal leagues at this point. And while he is slowing down of late, he does have seven home runs in August.

Fantasy Tip: Shaw ($3,800, 7.6% of cap) has emerged as a must-start FantasyScore option at a low price, posting two or more hits in four of his past five games.

Red Sox | Travis Shaw out of starting lineup Tuesday

Tue, 11 Aug 2015 12:51:28 -0700

Boston Red Sox 1B Travis Shaw is out of the starting lineup Tuesday, Aug. 11, against the Miami Marlins.

Fantasy Tip: Shaw ($3,100, 6.2% of cap) is out because David Ortiz ($5,100, 10.2% of cap) has to play first base. The game is against the Marlins at a National League park, so there is no designated hitter.

Red Sox | Mike Napoli scratched

Fri, 07 Aug 2015 16:09:05 -0700

Boston Red Sox 1B Mike Napoli was scratched from the starting lineup Friday, Aug. 7, for undisclosed reasons. 1B Travis Shaw moves to first base and 3B Pablo Sandoval enters the lineup after originally being out.

Fantasy Tip: We don't recommend starting Sandoval ($4,000, 8.0% of cap) against a left-hander tonight, as he's hitting only .200 (21-for-105) with none of his nine home runs against southpaws in 2015.

Red Sox | No Pablo Sandoval vs. southpaw

Fri, 07 Aug 2015 12:56:37 -0700

Boston Red Sox 3B Pablo Sandoval is not in the starting lineup Friday, Aug. 7. 1B Travis Shaw is starting at third base and batting seventh against Detroit Tigers SP Daniel Norris Friday.

Fantasy Tip: Sandoval ($4,000, 8.0% of cap) has been sitting regularly against left-handed pitchers and owns a .200/.236/.229 slash line against them this season. Don't be fooled by Shaw's ($1,800, 3.6% of cap) sterling results thus far this season. It is a small sample size, and the 25-year-old corner infielder has a .256/.319/.395 slash line through 668 plate appearances at the Class AAA level. Shaw is nothing more than a risky flier for FantasyScore players Friday.

Red Sox | Travis Shaw with a game to remember

Sat, 01 Aug 2015 18:08:26 -0700

Boston Red Sox 1B Travis Shaw went 4-for-4 with two home runs, three RBI, five runs scored and a walk in an 11-7 win over the Tampa Bay Rays Saturday, Aug. 1.

Fantasy Tip: Shaw was only starting because of an injury to Pablo Sandoval, but he made the most of the opportunity. He only has 19 at-bats this season, but he may have earned himself some more playing time. If he continues to show some potential, keep an eye on his price tag when he is added to the player pool at FantasyScore.

Red Sox | Pablo Sandoval remains out

Sat, 01 Aug 2015 08:26:31 -0700

Boston Red Sox 3B Pablo Sandoval (forearm) is not in the starting lineup against Tampa Bay Rays SP Matt Moore Saturday, Aug. 1. 1B Travis Shaw will start at third base and is batting sixth in the lineup.

Fantasy Tip: Owners should continue to monitor the situation to see when Sandoval ($4,000, 8.0% of cap) will be able to return. Shaw has not done much in his limited time with Boston this season and should be avoided.
