Red Sox | Brock Holt sitting out vs. White Sox

Tue, 25 Aug 2015 15:38:57 -0700

Boston Red Sox OF Brock Holt is not in the starting lineup Tuesday, Aug. 25. 2B Josh Rutledge is starting at the keystone and batting ninth against Chicago White Sox SP Jose Quintana Tuesday.

Fantasy Tip: Strangely, Holt ($3,700, 7.4% of cap) continues to draw out of the lineup in favor of Rutledge ($2,500, 5.0% of cap). The former is batting .300 in August with 10 runs and 11 RBI through 17 games. Rutledge, meanwhile, is hitting just .265, and he is nothing more than a low-priced flier at FantasyScore.

Red Sox | Brock Holt still sidelined

Sun, 23 Aug 2015 09:34:25 -0700

Boston Red Sox 2B Brock Holt (oblique) is not in the starting lineup against Kansas City Royals SP Edinson Volquez Sunday, Aug. 23. 2B Josh Rutledge will start at second base and is batting ninth in the lineup.

Fantasy Tip: Owners should monitor the situation to see when Holt ($3,700, 7.4% of cap) will be able to return to the lineup. Rutledge ($2,500, 5.0% of cap) is hitting .292 this month, but owners should be able to find better options to use.

Red Sox | Josh Rutledge starting at the keystone

Fri, 21 Aug 2015 14:07:37 -0700

Boston Red Sox 2B Josh Rutledge is starting at second base and batting ninth against Kansas City Royals SP Johnny Cueto Friday, Aug. 21. OF Brock Holt is not in the starting lineup Friday.

Fantasy Tip: Rutledge ($2,500, 5.0% of cap) has started at second base over Holt ($3,700, 7.4% of cap) the past three games. It is a bit strange, as Rutledge sports an underwhelming .208/.310/.208 slash line over 29 plate appearances with the Red Sox. Holt is hitting .362 with seven runs and 10 RBI over his past 10 games, so expect him to start receiving more starts than Rutledge sooner than later. Against Cueto ($9,700, 19.4% of cap), Rutledge is a desperation play at FantasyScore Friday.

Red Sox | Brock Holt sitting again

Thu, 20 Aug 2015 14:33:38 -0700

Boston Red Sox OF Brock Holt is out of the starting lineup again Thursday, Aug. 20. 2B Josh Rutledge is starting at second base and hitting ninth against Kansas City Royals SP Danny Duffy.

Fantasy Tip: Avoid Rutledge ($2,500, 5.0% of cap) on FantasyScore. He has only four hits (all singles) in 21 at-bats since joining Boston.

Red Sox | Day of rest for Xander Bogaerts

Wed, 19 Aug 2015 15:01:00 -0700

Boston Red Sox SS Xander Bogaerts is not in the starting lineup Wednesday, Aug. 19. OF Brock Holt moves over to shortstop and 2B Josh Rutledge is starting at the keystone and hitting ninth against Cleveland Indians SP Corey Kluber.

Fantasy Tip: Rutledge ($2,500, 5.0% of cap) has four hits in 18 at-bats for the Red Sox this year. That should be enough to convince you not to click him tonight on FantasyScore, especially against Kluber.

Red Sox | Pablo Sandoval out Sunday

Sun, 16 Aug 2015 08:26:43 -0700

Boston Red Sox 3B Pablo Sandoval (elbow) is out of the starting lineup Sunday, Aug. 16, against the Seattle Mariners. OF Brock Holt will shift to third base, while 2B Josh Rutledge will start at second base and hit eighth in the order against LHP Vidal Nuno.

Fantasy Tip: Rutledge ($2,500, 5.0% of cap) went 2-for-2 Saturday with four runs scored and two walks. That was an outlier game for the rarely used infielder, and he remains a very risky FantasyScore option.

Red Sox | No Brock Holt against Yanks

Thu, 06 Aug 2015 12:17:16 -0700

Boston Red Sox OF Brock Holt is not in the starting lineup against New York Yankees left-handed SP CC Sabathia Thursday, Aug. 6. 2B Josh Rutledge is starting at second base and hitting eighth.

Fantasy Tip: Rutledge ($2,500, 5.0% of cap) has only seven at-bats this entire season, all with Boston, and has only one hit and two strikeouts. He's not much of an offensive force and probably isn't worth your time on FantasyScore even while facing the inconsistent Sabathia.

Red Sox | Pablo Sandoval sitting against Rays

Fri, 31 Jul 2015 14:35:23 -0700

Boston Red Sox 3B Pablo Sandoval is not in the starting line Friday, July 31. 2B Josh Rutledge is starting at third base and batting ninth against Tampa Bay Rays SP Erasmo Ramirez Friday.

Fantasy Tip: Make sure to avoid Sandoval ($4,000, 8.0% of cap) in all fantasy formats Friday, and his production is really fading. He has a .239/.270/.342 slash line over his past 62 games. Rutledge is nothing more than a dice roll for daily contests Friday.

Red Sox | Josh Rutledge to have significant role?

Mon, 27 Jul 2015 16:24:20 -0700

Boston Red Sox 2B Josh Rutledge will likely join the team's active roster after being acquired from the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim Monday, July 27, according to general manager Ben Cherington. 2B Jemile Weeks may not be in the majors for long.

Fantasy Tip: It appears that Rutledge will be the Red Sox's starting second baseman with Dustin Pedroia (hamstring) on the DL, at least for the time being. Rutledge didn't appear for the Angels this year, and he was hitting .286 (92-for-322) with six home runs and 34 RBI in the minors. He doesn't have much power to speak of, but consistent playing time will make him attractive to those in AL leagues if you need middle infield depth at this time.

Red Sox | Boston trades Shane Victorino

Mon, 27 Jul 2015 15:10:49 -0700

Boston Red Sox OF Shane Victorino was traded to the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim Monday, July 27, in exchange for 2B Josh Rutledge.

Fantasy Tip: Rutledge could be used as a bench player by the Red Sox if he is on the 25-man roster and could see playing time at second base because of the injuries the team has at the position. Owners should avoid using him until his role is defined.
