Red Sox | Will Middlebrooks raking

Fri, 25 Jul 2014 09:43:46 -0700

Boston Red Sox 3B Will Middlebrooks (finger) is 9-for-28 with three home runs in his seven games of rehab at Triple-A Pawtucket. This may be opening up the Red Sox's third-base position for him when Middlebrooks returns.

Fantasy Tip: Middlebrooks is a decent deep-mixed speculation, but note that the Sox's picture will be crowded with Xander Bogaerts and, on some days, Brock Holt lining up there.

Red Sox | Xander Bogaerts homers

Fri, 18 Jul 2014 21:50:36 -0700

Boston Red Sox 3B Xander Bogaerts went 1-for-3 with a two-run home run Friday, July 18, against the Kansas City Royals. Bogaerts entered the game on an extended slide, posting just 14 hits over his past 123 at-bats (.114).

Fantasy Tip: Bogaerts is getting every chance to play through his slump, and perhaps the All-Star break coupled with this homer will be enough to get him going.

Red Sox | Not writing off Xander Bogaerts at SS

Fri, 11 Jul 2014 06:22:20 -0700

Boston Red Sox 3B Xander Bogaerts may still play shortstop in 2014, but the club wants to get him right at the plate before considering it. The likeliest scenario for him playing shortstop would be against a left-handed pitcher.

Fantasy Tip: A lot depends on the status of Will Middlebrooks (finger), where Brock Holt will play, and whether they still value Stephen Drew (maybe he'll be traded). Bogaerts isn't starter-worthy right now in most mixed leagues.

Red Sox | Xander Bogaerts working on balance

Thu, 03 Jul 2014 12:44:59 -0700

Boston Red Sox 3B Xander Bogaerts has been working with assistant hitting coach Victor Rodriguez on his balance at the plate, according to manager John Farrell. Farrell said it appears Bogaerts has been lunging while swinging at pitches, which has hurt his production. Farrell said Bogaerts has been struggling against sliders over the past month.

Red Sox | Not considering demotion for Xander Bogaerts

Wed, 02 Jul 2014 13:17:45 -0700

The Boston Red Sox are not considering sending SS Xander Bogaerts back to the minors, according to manager John Farrell.

Fantasy Tip: Bogaerts is in a big funk right now. He's swinging at a lot of bad pitches and coming up empty most of the time. Until he snaps out of it, consider benching him if you have the luxury to do so.

Fantasy Tip: His return could impact the playing time of the struggling Xander Bogaerts, so see if WMB is available in your deep league if you need a power speculation.

Mon, 30 Jun 2014 07:28:40 -0700

Boston Red Sox 3B Xander Bogaerts was out of the lineup Sunday, June 29, as he's in a 2-for-35 slump.
