Red Sox | Mookie Betts not playing vs. Tribe

Wed, 19 Aug 2015 15:06:35 -0700

Boston Red Sox OF Mookie Betts is not in the starting lineup Wednesday, Aug. 19. OF Jackie Bradley Jr. is starting in center field and is batting seventh against Cleveland Indians SP Corey Kluber.

Fantasy Tip: Bradley ($4,100, 8.2% of cap) finally started to turn it on the plate recently, and now he'll be in a platoon of sorts in right field with Rusney Castillo. Temper your expectations for his output tonight against Kluber, who has been lights out of late.

Red Sox | Right field platoon ahead for Boston

Mon, 17 Aug 2015 13:16:32 -0700

Boston Red Sox OFs Jackie Bradley Jr. and Rusney Castillo will rotate in and out of the lineup as the starting right fielder with OFs Hanley Ramirez and Mookie Betts starting the majority of time in left and center field, respectively, according to interim manager Torey Lovullo.

Fantasy Tip: The timeshare is working under the assumption all four outfielders remain healthy, which has rarely been the case this season. Obviously, Bradley ($2,800, 5.6% of cap) and Castillo ($4,200, 8.4% of cap) are the losers with a timeshare, but all four outfielders hold seasonal value in the majority of leagues. Monitor the situation for who to play at FantasyScore.

He had 52 runs, 10 home runs, 48 RBI, 13 stolen bases and a .265/.317/.438 slash line through his first 426 plate appearances this season. Continue to stash Betts in all formats, and his return will end what little fantasy value Jackie Bradley ($2,800, 5.6% of cap) currently holds.

Red Sox | Mookie Betts not ready to return

Thu, 06 Aug 2015 14:07:59 -0700

Boston Red Sox OF Mookie Betts (concussion) visited a concussion specialist in Pittsburgh Thursday, Aug. 6, and he is still expected to rejoin the team in Detroit Friday, Aug. 7. He has not been cleared to play yet, though.

Fantasy Tip: Betts' ($4,600, 9.2% of cap) excellent campaign has been halted by the injury, and with Boston out of the playoff mix, expect the club to be extremely cautious with their emerging star. Betts is worth stashing in all seasonal formats, and Jackie Bradley ($2,800, 5.6% of cap) should continue to see the majority of starts in center field in his absence. Bradley has little fantasy appeal, though, as he sports a .102/.220/.384 slash line for the season.
