Red Sox | David Ortiz out with illness

Sun, 12 Jul 2015 09:34:16 -0700

Boston Red Sox 1B David Ortiz (illness) is not in the starting lineup against New York Yankees SP Nathan Eovaldi Sunday, July 12. 1B Travis Shaw will start at first base and is batting eighth in the lineup.

Fantasy Tip: Owners will need to look for any updates on Ortiz ($4,600, 9.2% of cap) after the break to see when he can play again. Shaw has not doing much at the plate since joining the team and probably should be avoided by owners.

Boston Red Sox 1B Mike Napoli is out of the starting lineup Tuesday, July 7, against the Miami Marlins. 1B Travis Shaw will start at first base and hit ninth in the order against RHP Dan Haren.

Fantasy Tip: Shaw is without a hit in ten plate appearances this season, and he'll need to have some major league success before owners start investing.

Red Sox | Pablo Sandoval injures ankle

Sat, 20 Jun 2015 19:14:33 -0700

Boston Red Sox 3B Pablo Sandoval (ankle) exited in the fifth inning with a left ankle injury against the Kansas City Royals Saturday, June 20. He was replaced by 1B Travis Shaw.

Fantasy Tip: Check back for updates on Sandoval's ($3,300, 6.6% of cap) status moving forward. Shaw entered the game hitless in eight at-bats this year, and is a non-factor for fantasy purposes.

Red Sox | Pablo Sandoval benched

Thu, 18 Jun 2015 14:03:41 -0700

Boston Red Sox 3B Pablo Sandoval was benched for the game against the Atlanta Braves Thursday, June 18, after he admitted to checking his Instagram account during Boston's 5-2 loss to the Braves Wednesday, June 17. 1B Travis Shaw is starting at third base and batting seventh against Braves SP Shelby Miller Thursday.

Fantasy Tip: Make sure to avoid Sandoval ($3,300, 6.6% of cap) in all fantasy formats Thursday. It is an unfortunate situation, too, as he is having a solid month with a .333 batting average and .542 slugging percentage. Shaw ($1,800, 3.6% of cap) has played two career games, so with Miller on the hill, it would be wise to view Shaw as nothing more than a desperation flier in daily contests. FantasyScore players, in particular, should aim higher at first base, too.

Red Sox | Travis Shaw starting at first base

Fri, 08 May 2015 13:57:54 -0700

Boston Red Sox 1B Travis Shaw is batting ninth and playing first base against the Toronto Blue Jays Friday, May 8.

Fantasy Tip: This will be Shaw's first career game, and he should be avoided in daily contests. His playing time is likely limited, at best, with him probably only drawing into the lineup because David Ortiz is suspended.
