Red Sox | Rusney Castillo back from injury

Thu, 01 Oct 2015 12:48:17 -0700

Boston Red Sox OF Rusney Castillo (quadriceps) is starting in right field and batting fifth against New York Yankees SP CC Sabathia Thursday, Oct. 1. OF Brock Holt is not in the starting lineup Thursday.

Fantasy Tip: Castillo ($4,200, 8.4% of cap) posted an uninspiring .225/.263/.292 slash line over 23 games in September, and he missed three games with the quad injury, so he doesn't stand as a strong FantasyScore option Thursday. View the outfielder as a potential contrarian flier.

Red Sox | Brock Holt starting in right field

Wed, 30 Sep 2015 13:26:53 -0700

Boston Red Sox OF Brock Holt is starting in right field and batting sixth against New York Yankees SP Masahiro Tanaka Wednesday, Sept. 30. OF Rusney Castillo (quadriceps) is not in the starting lineup Wednesday.

Fantasy Tip: Holt ($3,500, 7.0% of cap) owns a respectable .294/.355/.368 slash line in September, and he checks out as a high-floor, low-ceiling FantasyScore option Wednesday. Although, it isn't a great matchup against Tanaka ($8,400, 16.8% of cap). Castillo ($4,200, 8.4% of cap) is battling a right quadriceps injury, and given he has a .555 OPS in September, he likely isn't worth holding out hope for in the majority of seasonal leagues.

Red Sox | Rusney Castillo out against Yankees

Mon, 28 Sep 2015 12:38:47 -0700

Holt ($3,500, 7.0% of cap) enters Monday with a .368 on-base percentage in September, which makes him a decent value play at FantasyScore, just keep your expectations in check. He is more of a high-floor guy than high-upside option.

Holt ($3,500, 7.0% of cap) presents value at his cap hit for FantasyScore players, and he has a .359 on-base percentage in September.

Red Sox | Rusney Castillo draws out vs. O's

Fri, 25 Sep 2015 12:11:14 -0700

Boston Red Sox OF Rusney Castillo is not in the starting lineup Friday, Sept. 25. OF Brock Holt is starting in left field and batting seventh against Baltimore Orioles SP Kevin Gausman Friday.

Fantasy Tip: While Castillo ($4,200, 8.4% of cap) is mired in a 5-for-41 funk, it is nothing more than a typical day off for him Friday. Holt ($3,500, 7.0% of cap) checks out as a low-upside play at FantasyScore Friday. His .337 slugging percentage in the second half leaves a lot to be desired for fantasy purposes.

Red Sox | Brock Holt starting vs. Rays

Thu, 24 Sep 2015 12:41:05 -0700

Boston Red Sox OF Brock Holt is starting at third base and batting seventh against Tampa Bay Rays SP Erasmo Ramirez Thursday, Sept. 24. 3B Pablo Sandoval (illness) remains out of the starting lineup Thursday.

Fantasy Tip: Holt ($3,500, 7.0% of cap) boasts a strong .307/.355/.404 slash line over his past 30 games, and he stands as a safe FantasyScore buy Thursday. However, his low slugging percentage highlights his limited upside. All said, Holt is far from a lineup lock. Continue to check back for updates on Sandoval ($4,400, 8.8% of cap), as he should return sooner than later.

Fantasy Tip: Marrero ($2,500, 5.0% of cap) has just 23 career plate appearances, and he checks out as nothing more than a flier at FantasyScore Wednesday. Sandoval ($4,400, 8.8% of cap) is expected to miss a short period of time, so he projects to rejoin the lineup sooner than later.

Red Sox | No Pablo Sandoval against Toronto

Fri, 18 Sep 2015 12:20:08 -0700

Boston Red Sox 3B Pablo Sandoval is not in the starting lineup Friday, Sept. 18. OF Brock Holt is starting at third base and batting second against Toronto Blue Jays SP Marcus Stroman Friday.

Fantasy Tip: Sandoval ($4,400, 8.8% of cap) owns a disappointing .215/.273/.343 slash line with just three home runs and 17 RBI since the All-Star break, and he isn't a worthy own outside of deep mixed leagues going forward. Holt ($3,500, 7.0% of cap) has an uninspiring .314 slugging percentage in September with a single extra-base hit, so FantasyScore players shouldn't could on him for significant contributions at FantasyScore Friday.

Red Sox | Mookie Betts out vs. Baltimore

Wed, 16 Sep 2015 12:41:24 -0700

Boston Red Sox OF Mookie Betts is not in the starting lineup Wednesday, Sept. 16. OF Brock Holt is starting in right field and is hitting leadoff against Baltimore Orioles SP Mike Wright.

Fantasy Tip: Holt ($3,500, 7.0% of cap) lost significant playing time when Dustin Pedroia came off the DL, but he can still be useful in daily games when he's in the lineup, and especially if he's atop the order like tonight. Both of his two home runs this year came against right-handers, and Wright shouldn't instill fear in fantasy gamers. Holt is a worthwhile sleeper pick.

Red Sox | Dustin Pedroia playing second base

Sat, 12 Sep 2015 11:12:06 -0700

Boston Red Sox 2B Dustin Pedroia will bat second against Tampa Bay Rays SP Matt Moore Saturday, Sept. 12. INF Brock Holt (back) is not in the lineup.

Fantasy Tip: Pedroia ($4,200, 8.4% of cap) is 2-for-9 since returning from the disabled list because of a hamstring injury. He is just 2-for-14 in his career against Moore so FantasyScore owners may want to pass on using him today.
