Red Sox | David Ortiz sitting Wednesday

Wed, 15 Apr 2015 09:31:38 -0700

Boston Red Sox DH David Ortiz is out of the lineup Wednesday, April 15.

Fantasy Tip: The Red Sox face left-handed starter Gio Gonzalez, and Allen Craig ($2,100, 4.2% of your cap) slots in at first with Mike Napoli at DH. Craig is just 1-for-8 on the season, and we need to see evidence that he's past the foot issues that dogged him last season before using him on FantasyScore.

Red Sox | David Ortiz moves up homer list

Mon, 13 Apr 2015 16:11:33 -0700

Boston Red Sox DH David Ortiz hit the 468th home run of his career in a winning effort over the Washington Nationals Monday, April 13, to move him into a tie for 32nd place on the all-time homer list with former Atlanta Braves 3B Chipper Jones.

Fantasy Tip: Ortiz ($4,900, 9.8% of cap) has been off to a bit of a slow start this year, but he does have two home runs. Big Papi is a much better play against right-handers at FantasyScore than on days when he faces a southpaw.

Red Sox | David Ortiz back in lineup Thursday

Thu, 09 Apr 2015 12:13:28 -0700

Boston Red Sox DH David Ortiz is back in the starting lineup against Philadelphia Phillies SP David Buchanan Thursday, April 9. Ortiz is playing first base and batting third in the order.

Fantasy Tip: Ortiz ($5,600, 11.2% of cap) had the day off yesterday in a National League park with no designated hitter. Against Buchanan and the Phils tonight, Ortiz, who is hitless in five at-bats this year (four strikeouts), is a good bet to get on the board in 2015.

Red Sox | David Ortiz sitting out Wednesday

Wed, 08 Apr 2015 12:09:39 -0700

Boston Red Sox DH David Ortiz is not in the starting lineup against the Philadelphia Phillies Wednesday, April 8.

Fantasy Tip: Ortiz will be in the starting lineup most nights as the designated hitter, but there is no designated hitter when the team plays in NL stadiums. Mike Napoli ($4,300, 8.6% of cap) will start at first base and could be a solid option on FantasyScore.

Red Sox | David Ortiz at 1B Monday

Mon, 06 Apr 2015 08:08:24 -0700

Boston Red Sox DH David Ortiz is playing first base against the Philadelphia Phillies Monday, April 6, to open the season.

Fantasy Tip: Ortiz ($5,600, 11.2% of your cap) is facing left-hander Cole Hamels. He's 0-for-3 in his career against him. Today might be a tough draw for Big Papi on FantasyScore.

Red Sox | David Ortiz could see 1B time

Tue, 31 Mar 2015 12:30:22 -0700

Boston Red Sox DH David Ortiz could see some time at first base in the final spring games. The team opens the season against the Philadelphia Phillies and it wants Ortiz in the lineup for those games.

Fantasy Tip: Ortiz ($5,600 FantasyScore, 11.2% of cap) should be in your lineup because of his power with the bat, but it's a good thing points aren't deducted for fielding. You also may want to monitor the situation. If the team can't get Ortiz some time at first, it's possible he could sit down for one or more games in this series.

Red Sox | David Ortiz to return later this week

Mon, 23 Mar 2015 10:28:17 -0700

Boston Red Sox DH David Ortiz is expected to return to action in a minor league game Thursday, March 26, after dealing with dehydration caused from the flu that has left him with "overall soreness," according to manager John Farrell. Ortiz hasn't played since last Monday. The Red Sox are unconcerned with his status, as he has missed plenty of spring action in past years and been fine.

Fantasy Tip: Despite his age (39), Big Papi still remains relevant in fantasy baseball leagues. He's hit at least 30 home runs in back-to-back seasons for the Red Sox, and he's in one of baseball's most potent lineups yet again in 2015. His lack of positional eligibility hurts him, but he could easily present value in the middle rounds of your draft.

Red Sox | David Ortiz off this weekend

Fri, 20 Mar 2015 07:21:25 -0700

Boston Red Sox DH David Ortiz (rest) will not play in spring games this weekend due to general soreness. His achy Achilles' isn't contributing to the decision.

Fantasy Tip: Ortiz ($5,600; 11.2% of your cap) is still a viable 1B option on FantasyScore, but he may need days off more frequently at 39.

Red Sox | David Ortiz out with dehydration

Wed, 18 Mar 2015 07:03:51 -0700

Boston Red Sox DH David Ortiz (dehydration) will take a couple of days off, beginning Wednesday, March 18, due to dehydration.

Fantasy Tip: Ortiz remains a potent bat to target in the first half of your draft. He will clog up your utility spot, but it'll be hard to find better power numbers for them. Ortiz will be eligible at first base on FantasyScore's daily game.
