Red Sox | Brock Holt draws into lineup again

Fri, 29 May 2015 13:51:37 -0700

Boston Red Sox OF Brock Holt is starting in left field and hitting sixth in the batting order against Texas Rangers SP Yovani Gallardo Friday, May 29. OF Hanley Ramirez is serving as the designated hitter again with 1B David Ortiz sitting out to work on his swing.

Fantasy Tip: Holt ($2,200, 4.4% of cap) continues to find his way into the lineup because he's hitting .299 (29-for-97) with a homer and 11 RBI. He's also hitting .319 (23-for-72) with his only home run against righties, and Gallardo has allowed five of his seven long balls to lefty sticks this year. Seems like the perfect storm to make Holt a successful sleeper pick tonight.

Red Sox | Brock Holt starting at third base

Thu, 21 May 2015 13:31:34 -0700

Boston Red Sox OF Brock Holt is batting sixth and playing third base against the Texas Rangers Thursday, May 21.

Fantasy Tip: Holt ($2,700, 5.4% of cap) has slipped into a mini-funk of late and is reeling through a 7-for-44 skid with just three runs and one RBI. There is upside, and Holt is capable, but FantasyScore players should likely aim higher than taking a desperation flier on him Thursday.

Red Sox | Pablo Sandoval out vs. lefty

Thu, 21 May 2015 13:23:00 -0700

Boston Red Sox 3B Pablo Sandoval (knee) is not in the starting lineup against the Texas Rangers Thursday, May 21. OF Brock Holt is starting at third base and batting sixth.

Fantasy Tip: Make sure to avoid Sandoval ($5,200, 10.4% of cap) in all fantasy formats Thursday. He is 2-for-41 against left-handed pitchers this season, so this has the makings of a full platoon. Holt ($2,700, 5.4% of cap) is stuck in a 4-for-26 funk with just one run and one RBI during the skid. FantasyScore players can take a desperation flier on Holt Thursday, but it is advised to aim higher.

Sat, 16 May 2015 15:39:05 -0700

Red Sox | Pablo Sandoval out vs. lefty

Thu, 14 May 2015 14:52:54 -0700

Boston Red Sox 3B Pablo Sandoval is not in the starting lineup Thursday, May 14. OF Brock Holt is starting at third base and hitting seventh in the batting order against Seattle Mariners SP Roenis Elias.

Fantasy Tip: Sandoval ($5,200, 10.4% of cap) is batting just .059 (2-for-34) with one RBI while hitting right-handed against lefties this year, so you should avoid him for the foreseeable future against southpaws. Holt ($2,700, 5.4% of cap) is just 2-for-11 (.182) against lefties this year, making him a weak option for FantasyScore users. Elias has held lefty swingers to a .225 average and .669 OPS in his short career.

Red Sox | Xander Bogaerts sitting out Wednesday

Wed, 13 May 2015 09:47:20 -0700

Boston Red Sox SS Xander Bogaerts is not in the starting lineup Wednesday, May 13. OF Brock Holt is starting at shortstop and hitting sixth in the batting order against Oakland Athletics SP Sonny Gray.

Fantasy Tip: Holt ($2,700, 5.4% of cap) is 17-for-50 (.340) with his only home run and four RBI against right-handed pitchers in 2015 in limited time. He's facing a pitcher that has been throwing well, though, but Holt could come in handy as a cheap sleeper option at FantasyScore.
