Red Sox | CF up for grabs in Boston?

Wed, 25 Feb 2015 10:32:51 -0800

Boston Red Sox OFs Rusney Castillo, Mookie Betts and Jackie Bradley Jr. could all be competing for center field duties this spring, with OF Hanley Ramirez slated for left and OF Shane Victorino (if healthy) in right field. Castillo could have the inside track on the job based on the $72.5 million deal he signed last year. General manager Ben Cherington doesn't think Castillo needs more seasoning before playing in the big leagues. Betts impressed the team in his rookie season last year, while Bradley struggled offensive but continues to impress with his defense. Manager John Farrell has been impressed with Bradley's compact swing at the plate so far in spring. All three outfielders have minor league options left. The Red Sox could find considerable playing time for one of the center fielders off the bench. However, OFs Allen Craig and Daniel Nava are also competing for playing time.

Fantasy Tip: The most likely scenario is that Castillo starts in center with Betts coming off the bench to replace Ramirez and Victorino where needed. Bradley would then be the odd-man out and start the year in the minors. As a result, Castillo should be taken in the middle rounds of standard drafts for his upside, while Betts remains relevant in mixed leagues for his speed later on.

Red Sox | Jackie Bradley might not be dealt

Sun, 22 Feb 2015 19:16:27 -0800

Boston Red Sox OF Jackie Bradley Jr. is still held in high regard by the team, and a source said Sunday, Feb. 22, that the Red Sox and Atlanta Braves have not spoken about a deal for Bradley in weeks. The source added that it would seem unlikely talks will intensify again.

Fantasy Tip: Bradley is likely ticketed for Triple-A Pawtucket to start the season rather than languishing on the bench due to a crowded outfield in Beantown. With the team facing roster changes with Mike Napoli and Shane Victorino in the final year of their deals, and Davis Ortiz turning 40 in November, two outfield spots might come open in 2016. Bradley might still have a future in Boston, but his immediate fantasy prospects are bleak.

Red Sox | Mookie Betts to move to 2B

Fri, 12 Sep 2014 09:51:58 -0700

Boston Red Sox OF Mookie Betts will temporarily be moved to second base, and his first game there could come Friday, Sept. 12, according to manager John Farrell. 2B Dustin Pedroia (wrist) is out for the season, and 3B Brock Holt (head) has not played since Sept. 5 due to concussion-like symptoms. OF Rusney Castillo could be added to the roster next week. Betts would play second base "fairly regularly." He hasn't played second base since he was with Class AAA July 28. Farrell said the team still sees Betts as an outfielder in the long term, however. OF Jackie Bradley Jr. will share duties in center field.

The Boston Red Sox have recalled OF Mookie Betts from Triple-A Pawtucket. The team also optioned OF Jackie Bradley Jr. to Triple-A Pawtucket.

Red Sox | Shane Victorino back to DL?

Thu, 31 Jul 2014 15:48:02 -0700

Boston Red Sox OF Shane Victorino (undisclosed) could be headed back to the disabled list soon. He will "miss a little time," according to general manager Ben Cherington. OF Yoenis Cespedes will play right field and OF Allen Craig will be in left.

Fantasy Tip: Victorino just can't seem to stay healthy as he ages. Don't feel the need to hang onto him in standard leagues if he goes back on the DL. Jackie Bradley Jr. seems safe, for now.
