Red Sox | More patience from Xander Bogaerts

Thu, 05 May 2016 11:05:16 -0700

Boston Red Sox SS Xander Bogaerts has shown more patience at the plate in 2016, raising his walk rate from 4.9 to 8.8% this year. He's also shown some more power and is hitting extra-base hits at a higher rate (86%) than any qualified regular.

Fantasy Tip: Bogaerts is quietly becoming one of the most consistent all-around shortstops in fantasy and real life. While his extra-base prowess is on the rise, it hasn't contributed in the home run column (just one), and you shouldn't expect him to hit for double-digit long balls. But considering his improvements in plate patience, the rest is gravy at a shallow position.

Red Sox | Xander Bogaerts working on streak

Wed, 04 May 2016 23:10:33 -0700

Boston Red Sox SS Xander Bogaerts went 3-for-4 with a walk, run scored and RBI Wednesday, May 4, against the Chicago White Sox to push his hitting streak to six games.

Fantasy Tip: Bogaerts is hitting .458 (11-for-24) during his impressive run, and remains a tremendous fantasy option in most formats, especially in DFS play, while running hot.

Red Sox | Three Boston hitters are hot

Tue, 03 May 2016 14:16:17 -0700

Boston Red Sox SS Xander Bogaerts is hitting .432/.519/.568 with 10 runs, six doubles and four RBI in his last 11 games. OF Jackie Bradley Jr. has hit in eight straight contests (11-for-30) with seven extra-base hits and nine RBI. 1B Hanley Ramirez has 13 hits in his last 42 at-bats (.310) with nine RBI.

Fantasy Tip: Obviously you'll want to keep all three of these players in your lineups, even though they're facing White Sox starter Jose Quintana, who has an ERA under 2.00, tonight. Bradley is excelling at the bottom of the lineup and is worth picking up for outfield depth in deep mixed leagues if he's available.

Red Sox | Xander Bogaerts likely to play Sunday

Sat, 23 Apr 2016 12:12:25 -0700

Updating a previous story, Boston Red Sox SS Xander Bogaerts (wrist) will likely return to the lineup for the series finale against the Houston Astros on Sunday, April 24, according to manager John Farrell.

Fantasy Tip: Owners already know Bogaerts isn't in the lineup Saturday, so he shouldn't be considered an option in fantasy for this afternoon's game. Although he is far from a lock to start Sunday night, the fact Farrell appears optimistic bodes well for an early-week return next week, even if he sits through the weekend.

Red Sox | Xander Bogaerts won't hit Saturday

Sat, 23 Apr 2016 10:47:05 -0700

Boston Red Sox SS Xander Bogaerts (wrist) will not hit Saturday, April 23, but he will throw in order to see if he can be used as an emergency option on defense. He has strength in his wrist after being hit by a pitch Friday, April 22, although he lacks flexibility and mobility.

Fantasy Tip: It is probably safe to say that Bogaerts won't be able to start Sunday, April 24, if he hasn't been cleared to resume hitting yet. INF/OF Brock Holt is expected to see most of the playing time at shortstop while he is sidelined.

Red Sox | Brock Holt starting at shortstop

Sat, 23 Apr 2016 10:06:53 -0700

Boston Red Sox INF/OF Brock Holt is batting sixth and starting at shortstop against Houston Astros SP Mike Fiers Saturday, April 23. SS Xander Bogaerts (wrist) is out of the lineup after he was hit in the wrist area by a pitch Friday, April 22.

Fantasy Tip: The versatile Holt has been serving primarily as Boston's left fielder but has also seen action at shortstop in 2016. He would likely remain at the position if Bogaerts is forced to miss an extended period of time. Holt is batting .286 with two home runs and 10 RBI through his first 42 at-bats and makes a decent option in daily fantasy games this afternoon.

Red Sox | Brock Holt appears at SS again

Fri, 22 Apr 2016 21:49:06 -0700

Boston Red Sox OF Brock Holt finished up at shortstop Friday, April 22, against the Houston Astros after SS Xander Bogaerts (wrist) checked out early.

Fantasy Tip: Holt saw a few games at shortstop last season, and might be available there in fantasy leagues with lax eligibility requirements. For most others, he has two games there this season and might become eligible there soon, adding to his fantasy appeal.

Red Sox | Xander Bogaerts leaves game

Fri, 22 Apr 2016 21:47:50 -0700

Boston Red Sox SS Xander Bogaerts (wrist) left the game Friday, April 22, against the Houston Astros after being hit in the wrist area by a pitch.

Fantasy Tip: Bogaerts went 2-for-4 with a double and 2-out RBI before departing. Avoid him in fantasy leagues which allow daily moves and DFS play until he can officially return and prove his health in a full game without any setbacks. Brock Holt shifted from left field to shortstop for the second time this week with Bogaerts departing early.

Red Sox | Dustin Pedroia, Xander Bogaerts with big games

Thu, 21 Apr 2016 16:29:09 -0700

Boston Red Sox 2B Dustin Pedroia went 3-for-6 with a run scored, double, home run and two RBI in the loss to the Tampa Bay Rays Thursday, April 21. Pedroia was a triple shy of the cycle. SS Xander Bogaerts went 3-for-4 with a run scored, walk and two doubles.

Fantasy Tip: Pedroia has a hit in all but two of the games he's played this year. Despite an increased ground-ball percentage, he has looked fine. Pedroia remains a fantasy starter at second, but his power numbers could be down considerably. Bogaerts injured himself last night but looked just fine today to ease any concerns his owners may have.

Red Sox | Xander Bogaerts back in there

Thu, 21 Apr 2016 08:03:51 -0700

Boston Red Sox SS Xander Bogaerts (quadriceps) is back in the lineup Thursday, April 21, after he was lifted the previous day with a quadriceps issue.

Fantasy Tip: Bogaerts is just 4-for-23 (.174) the last seven days, but he's a daily option at the position against Jake Odorizzi.
