Red Sox | Mookie Betts returns vs. Braves

Mon, 15 Jun 2015 14:02:44 -0700

Boston Red Sox OF Mookie Betts (back) is batting eighth and playing center field against Atlanta Braves SP Williams Perez Monday, June 15.

Fantasy Tip: Betts ($3,900, 7.8% of cap) missed two games after a scary crash into the wall during the game Friday, June 12. More importantly, now that he appears past any health scare, Betts hasn't been overly productive at the dish. He has a .237/.296/.381 slash line for the year, and his 25 runs, six home runs, 26 RBI and 10 stolen bases don't jump off the page, either. At this point, he is a risky FantasyScore play.

Red Sox | Mookie Betts remains out

Sun, 14 Jun 2015 10:29:30 -0700

Boston Red Sox OF Mookie Betts (back) is not in the starting lineup against Toronto Blue Jays SP Marco Estrada Sunday, June 14. OF Rusney Castillo will start in center field and bat eighth, while OF Alejandro De Aza will start in right field and bat seventh.

Fantasy Tip: Betts ($3,900, 7.8% of cap) remains out because of his back injury. Castillo ($3,500, 7.0% of cap) and De Aza ($2,900, 5.8% of cap) are not great option on FantasyScore since neither player has had great success at the plate.

Red Sox | Mookie Betts expected to avoid DL

Sat, 13 Jun 2015 08:56:11 -0700

Boston Red Sox OF Mookie Betts (back) is dealing with soreness in his back but likely will not need to be placed on the 15-day disabled list. Betts could sit out a few days because of the injury.

Fantasy Tip: Betts ($3,900, 7.8% of cap) probably will sit a few days to rest his back, so owners should look at the team's lineup to see when he will be able to return. Rusney Castillo ($3,500, 7.0% of cap) probably will fill in at center field until Betts returns and could be an option on FantasyScore against certain opponents.

Red Sox | Brock Holt draws in

Sun, 07 Jun 2015 06:58:03 -0700

Boston Red Sox OF Brock Holt will draw into the lineup Sunday, June 7, against the Oakland Athletics, in place of OF Mookie Betts. Holt will start in right field and hit second in the order against RHP Kendall Graveman.

Fantasy Tip: Holt's ($2,200, 4.4% of cap) lone home run on the season came April 24, but he is 3-for-9 in his last two games with a double, a run scored, an RBI and a stolen base. With a .284 batting average against right-handed pitchers, Holt is an excellent source of cap relief on FantasyScore.
