Boston Red Sox OF Jackie Bradley Jr. belted a three-run home run and scored twice against the Minnesota Twins on Saturday, June 11.
Fantasy Tip: It was going to be nearly impossible for JBJ to repeat May (.381, eight homers and 24 RBI), but Saturday's performance gave him his first home run of the month and doubled his RBI total. He is still only batting .214 in June after today's 1-for-4 effort, but his bat should reawaken soon. He was batting .359 against southpaws entering action on Saturday and he'll face one in the Twins' Pat Dean in Sunday's series finale, so keep him active in fantasy.

Boston Red Sox OF Jackie Bradley Jr. was activated from the paternity list Friday, June 3. In a corresponding move, OF Rusney Castillo was optioned to Class AAA Pawtucket.
Fantasy Tip: Bradley owns a .331/.409/.601 slash line for the season and recently posted a 29-game hit streak. Jumping back into the a potent lineup will help him avoid any lengthy slumps going forward, and Bradley should be returned to all starting lineups immediately. Castillo is nothing more than a desperation stash in cavernous mixed and AL-only formats at this stage of the game.

Boston Red Sox OF Jackie Bradley Jr. (personal) should rejoin the team Friday, June 3, according to manager John Farrell.
Fantasy Tip: Bradley has missed the last few games while on paternity leave, but luckily will be back in action for the weekend. He's been seemingly red hot all season long with a remarkable .331/.409/.601 slash line, so hopefully the 26-year-old is able to pick up where he left off. Keep firing him up if you were fortunate to draft him.

Updating a previous item, Boston Red Sox OF Jackie Bradley Jr. is not in the lineup because he is on paternity leave. OF Rusney Castillo was recalled from Class AAA Pawtucket in a corresponding move.
Fantasy Tip: There is no timetable on Bradley's return, although he will likely be out for a few days. Castillo has been doing a decent job against minor league pitching, with a .241 average and eight doubles in 37 games, so he carries some fantasy value in daily leagues. Castillo will likely head down to the minors when Bradley comes back, so don't overspend in other formats.

Boston Red Sox OF Jackie Bradley Jr. is not in the starting lineup Tuesday, May 31. OF Chris Young is starting in center field and is hitting seventh against Baltimore Orioles SP Kevin Gausman.
