Red Sox | Mookie Betts had knee drained

Mon, 25 Jul 2016 13:39:49 -0700

Boston Red Sox OF Mookie Betts (knee) had fluid drained from his knee two days ago, which lead to diminished swelling and less pain. However, manager John Farrell said they "don't fully expect (the fluid) to vanish," which means Betts may need some more days off heading into a tough August schedule.

Fantasy Tip: It's a little concerning for Betts owners, but the fact that he's back in the starting lineup and hitting leadoff Monday should quell any concerns for now. After all, Betts has become one of the more valuable fantasy outfielders with his .307 average, 79 runs scored, 20 home runs, 63 RBI and 16 stolen bases. Get him back into all starting lineups.

Red Sox | Mookie Betts, David Ortiz resting Sunday

Sun, 24 Jul 2016 07:39:04 -0700

Boston Red Sox OF Mookie Betts (knee) and DH David Ortiz are not in the starting lineup against Minnesota Twins SP Tommy Milone Sunday, July 24. 1B Hanley Ramirez will bat cleanup and serve as the designated hitter, with INF Travis Shaw batting seventh and playing first base and OF Bryce Brentz playing left field and batting eighth. In addition, C Ryan Hanigan will bat ninth and start behind the plate.

Fantasy Tip: Shaw is just 2-for-17 (.118) over the past seven days, while Hanigan is 2-for-12 (.167) during the month of July. Both players should be avoided in all fantasy formats. Brentz is batting .308 versus southpaws this season and is worthy of consideration as a value play in DFS.

Red Sox | Mookie Betts out again

Sat, 23 Jul 2016 13:30:03 -0700

Boston Red Sox OF Mookie Betts (knee) is out of the lineup Saturday, July 23, with OF Michael Martinez hitting ninth. Manager John Farrell said nothing is structurally wrong with Betts. He is day to day, but he could miss some time.

Fantasy Tip: Martinez isn't a potent enough bat to use in fantasy, even against Ricky Nolasco. Keep an eye on what the Red Sox opt to do in Betts' absence. Chris Marrero could come up, and he'd be a matchup play.
