Red Sox | Brock Holt suffers apparent foot injury

Fri, 08 Jul 2016 17:28:14 -0700

Boston Red Sox OF Brock Holt (foot) suffered an apparent left foot injury while sliding into second base during the bottom of the fourth inning versus the Tampa Bay Rays Friday, July 8. He was replaced in the game by OF Bryce Brentz.

Fantasy Tip: The severity of Holt's injury is unknown, so check back occasionally for further updates on his condition. Holt was 1-for-2 with a stolen base before leaving Friday's game and was 7-for-19 (.368) since returning from the disabled list last week after suffering a concussion. If he is forced to miss multiple games, expect Brentz to see the bulk of the action in left field for the BoSox.

Red Sox | Brock Holt sitting vs. Texas

Wed, 06 Jul 2016 12:12:21 -0700

Boston Red Sox INF/OF Brock Holt is not in the starting lineup Wednesday, July 6. OF Bryce Brentz is starting in left field and batting seventh against Texas Rangers SP Martin Perez Wednesday.

Fantasy Tip: Holt sits out most games against southpaws, which is a slight hit to his fantasy stock. He's 6-for-17 with six runs and three RBI since returning from the disabled list Friday, July 1, and Holt is a valuable fantasy asset because of his eligibility all over the diamond. He's even more appealing while hitting well in a powerful lineup. Brentz is a potential low-priced flier for daily contests Wednesday, but his seasonal value is extremely low.

Red Sox | Brock Holt returns to lineup Sunday

Sun, 03 Jul 2016 07:36:22 -0700

Boston Red Sox OF Brock Holt is back in the starting lineup against Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim SP Matt Shoemaker Sunday, July 3, batting seventh. In addition, C Sandy Leon will start behind the plate and bat eighth, with INF Marco Hernandez playing third base and batting ninth. C Christian Vazquez and 3B Travis Shaw have the day off.

Fantasy Tip: Holt went 2-for-4 with two doubles, an RBI and a run scored in his first game back from the disabled list Friday, July 1, after being sidelined with a concussion, so it is safe to resume using him in all fantasy formats. Leon is 14-for-31 (.452) with four doubles, a home run and six RBI through 31 at-bats this season, while Hernandez is 5-for-15 at the plate over the past week, making them worthy of consideration for daily fantasy lineups as inexpensive sources of offense.
