Red Sox | Big Papi reaches 25 homers

Tue, 26 Jul 2016 20:03:12 -0700

Boston Red Sox DH David Ortiz went 1-for-5 with a three-run home run Tuesday, July 26, against the Detroit Tigers. The homer was his 25th of the season, his fourth straight with 25 or more homers, and the 12th time he has reached the plateau in his illustrious career.

Fantasy Tip: Big Papi still has plenty left in the tank as he approaches the final two regular season months of his career. He remains a must-start fantasy option across all formats and is showing no signs of slowing down.

Red Sox | Mookie Betts, David Ortiz resting Sunday

Sun, 24 Jul 2016 07:39:04 -0700

Boston Red Sox OF Mookie Betts (knee) and DH David Ortiz are not in the starting lineup against Minnesota Twins SP Tommy Milone Sunday, July 24. 1B Hanley Ramirez will bat cleanup and serve as the designated hitter, with INF Travis Shaw batting seventh and playing first base and OF Bryce Brentz playing left field and batting eighth. In addition, C Ryan Hanigan will bat ninth and start behind the plate.

Fantasy Tip: Shaw is just 2-for-17 (.118) over the past seven days, while Hanigan is 2-for-12 (.167) during the month of July. Both players should be avoided in all fantasy formats. Brentz is batting .308 versus southpaws this season and is worthy of consideration as a value play in DFS.

Red Sox | David Ortiz smacks three-run blast

Tue, 19 Jul 2016 21:46:55 -0700

Boston Red Sox DH David Ortiz was 1-for-3 with a three-run home run against the San Francisco Giants on Tuesday, July 19. It was Ortiz's 23rd of the season.

Fantasy Tip: After a quiet three-game set with the Yankees, Ortiz brought the lumber on Tuesday, clubbing his 23rd home run and becoming just the second player in baseball to reach the 75-RBI mark this season (Edwin Encarnacion: 84). Keep Big Papi in your lineup.

Red Sox | Edwin Encarnacion to replace Big Papi?

Mon, 11 Jul 2016 22:42:55 -0700

Toronto Blue Jays 1B Edwin Encarnacion was asked Monday, July 11, about potentially replacing Boston Red Sox DH David Ortiz after this season. Encarnacion said he was honored Ortiz brought his name up, but said he is focused on his team right now and winning a World Series in Toronto.

Fantasy Tip: Encarnacion tabled contract extension talks after spring training, as he didn't want the distraction during the season. He is going to get a hefty payday somewhere in the offseason, whether it be Toronto or elsewhere. As such, he should put up monster numbers in the second half for fantasy owners to bump up his price tag.

Red Sox | David Ortiz connects on 22nd home run

Sun, 10 Jul 2016 15:30:34 -0700

Boston Red Sox DH David Ortiz homered for the third time in four games against the Tampa Bay Rays on Sunday, July 10, lifting a first-inning pitch from SP Jake Odorizzi over the fence in left.

Fantasy Tip: Big Papi ends the first half ranking second in the AL in average (.332) and second in the majors in RBI (72), which isn't too shabby for a 40-year-old man set to retire at the end of the year. He'll make his 10th All-Star Game appearance on Tuesday and figures to draw a huge ovation from the crowd in San Diego when he does so. In addition to his aforementioned prodigious totals, Ortiz has scored 42 runs and a team-high 22 home runs.
