Boston Red Sox OF Shane Victorino (back, hamstring) is dealing with more back issues and will not start his rehab assignment Wednesday, July 9.
Fantasy Tip: Here we go again. The Flyin' Hawaiin won't be back before the All-Star break and now may not be ready to return immediately after, either. The longer Victorino is out, the more it benefits Mookie Betts.

Boston Red Sox OF Mookie Betts is out of the lineup for the second straight day Monday, July 7, and it's the third time in the last four games he hasn't started. However, manager John Farrell said Betts would be "on the field regularly" this week with the team facing lefties on three straight days. Betts is 4-for-19 in five games since being called up. OF Jackie Bradley Jr. has been heating up at the plate, making it harder for Betts to find playing time.
Fantasy Tip: Betts has also been shaky in center field as he converts from being an infielder in the minors. When Shane Victorino (hamstring) returns from the DL after the All-Star break, there's a chance Betts is sent back down.

Boston Red Sox 3B Brock Holt will be the team's utility infielder. The team views OF Mookie Betts as strictly an outfielder for now.

Boston Red Sox SS Stephen Drew and OF Jackie Bradley Jr. are both sitting out Wednesday, July 2, with the team facing a left-handed pitcher. OF Mookie Betts is starting in center and OF Jonny Gomes is in left. SS Jonathan Herrera is at shortstop.
Fantasy Tip: Make sure Drew and Bradley are out of your lineups.

Boston Red Sox SS Xander Bogaerts is back in the starting lineup Monday, June 30. OF Mookie Betts will make his second major league start in center field as OF Jackie Bradley Jr. sits.
Fantasy Tip: You may want to think twice about returning Bogaerts back to your starting lineup, though, until he shows signs of breaking out of his current slump.

Updating a previous report, the Boston Red Sox recalled SS Mookie Betts from Triple-A Pawtucket Saturday, June 28.
Fantasy Tip: Betts is a definite target for owners in AL-only leagues and a worthwhile gamble in most mixed leagues, given the relative shallow depth of fantasy-relevant shortstops.
