Red Sox | Boston outfield set

Tue, 26 Jan 2016 14:04:58 -0800

Boston Red Sox OFs Mookie Betts, Rusney Castillo and Jackie Bradley Jr. are set to be the starting outfielders in 2016, with Bradley in center field, Castillo in left and Betts in right. OF Chris Young is expected to start against left-handed pitchers and mix in regularly against righties.

Fantasy Tip: After the breakout year that Betts had in 2015, he's unlikely to make it past the second round of fantasy drafts. Young is expected to platoon with Bradley the most, so those two are more of targets in deep mixed leagues. Castillo is the wild card. He has plenty of talent but only had five homers in 80 games last year. A cheap investment there could yield plenty of value.

Sun, 13 Dec 2015 13:42:06 -0800

The Kansas City Royals inquired about Boston Red Sox OF Jackie Bradley Jr. at the winter meetings but were told Bradley was not for sale.

Fantasy Tip: It looks like the Chicago Cubs also had their eyes on Bradley before they signed Jason Heyward. The Red Sox appear to want Bradley as part of their offensive plans, but his hitting keeps Bradley down on most draft boards.

Red Sox | Jackie Bradley Jr. off table?

Sun, 15 Nov 2015 13:43:58 -0800

Boston Red Sox OF Jackie Bradley Jr. may not be dealt by the team this winter. Sources speculate Red Sox general manager Dave Dombrowski would likely pursue pitching via free agency and not likely make any trades to keep the core intact.

Fantasy Tip: If that's the case, then Bradley will be welcomed back to Boston and a lot of teams will be disappointed. If he can get his hitting act together, Bradley could shoot up some draft boards. As it is, his hitting is what keeps Bradley down on most charts.

Red Sox | Jackie Bradley attracting interest

Thu, 12 Nov 2015 11:08:56 -0800

Boston Red Sox OF Jackie Bradley Jr. is attracting a lot of trade interest from other teams, with the Seattle Mariners, Kansas City Royals and Chicago Cubs among the interested parties. Bradley hit just .138 with a .510 OPS in his last 25 games to close out the season.

Fantasy Tip: Bradley finished the season hitting .249 (55-for-221) with 10 home runs and 43 RBI. He's been one of the better defensive outfielders for the Red Sox, but he remains an enigma at the plate in his young career. A change of scenery could do him good, though. Look for Bradley in the later rounds of deep mixed fantasy leagues in 2016 if he's set for an everyday role.

Mariners | Seattle wants athletic OF

Wed, 11 Nov 2015 10:13:33 -0800

The Seattle Mariners may be inclined to trade for the likes of New York Yankees OF Brett Gardner, St. Louis Cardinals OFs Jon Jay or Peter Bourjos, Texas Rangers OF Leonys Martin or Boston Red Sox OF Jackie Bradley Jr. rather than sign impending free-agent OFs Dexter Fowler (Cubs), Austin Jackson (Cubs) or Denard Span (Nationals).

Fantasy Tip: Gardner is likely Seattle's top trade target and is the biggest fantasy name of the bunch. A move to pitcher-friendly Safeco Field would turn many off to Gardner, but that could make him a better value pick in 2016 fantasy drafts for his speed.

Red Sox | Rusney Castillo out of Tuesday lineup

Tue, 29 Sep 2015 12:32:08 -0700

Boston Red Sox OF Rusney Castillo (quadriceps) is not starting Tuesday, Sept. 29, against the New York Yankees. OF Jackie Bradley Jr. replaces Castillo and bats ninth against Yankees SP Michael Pineda.

Fantasy Tip: Castillo ($4,200, 8.4% of cap) still feels the effects of a minor quad strain, according to sources, so he will take a seat again. Bradley ($5,200, 10.4% of cap) is 2-for-4 against Pineda but has a .150 average in the last week, so in the end you should leave him on the bench.

Red Sox | Hanley Ramirez out Tuesday

Tue, 01 Sep 2015 12:37:52 -0700

Boston Red Sox OF Hanley Ramirez (shoulder) is out for the fifth day in a row due to shoulder issues. OF Jackie Bradley Jr. is in the lineup and hitting ninth against New York Yankees SP Michael Pineda.

Fantasy Tip: Indications are this shoulder has been hurting Ramirez ($4,100, 8.2% of cap) for longer than just a few days, and Bradley ($5,000, 10.0% of cap) has been better-hitting and fantastic on defense. This is likely why Ramirez is learning first base. Keep Ramirez seated from any FantasyScore lineups, and it may be time to consider shelving him for the season.
