Red Sox | David Ortiz holding off Father Time

Sun, 22 May 2016 14:32:45 -0700

Boston Red Sox DH David Ortiz reached base in all five of his at-bats Sunday, May 22, against the Cleveland Indians, going 4-for-4 - including two doubles and a solo homer - and three RBI while also drawing a walk.

Fantasy Tip: The 40-year-old Big Papi is tied for sixth in the majors in home runs with 11 and trails only behind Robinson Cano in RBI with 37. If there is one minor complaint recently, it might be the only two runs he has scored over the last eight games have come as a result of his homers. Be that as it may, Ortiz is a must-start in all leagues.

Sat, 21 May 2016 07:52:02 -0700

Boston Red Sox 1B David Ortiz said he still plans to retire at the end of the season even though he is hitting over .300 with 10 home runs so far this season.

Red Sox | David Ortiz not starting

Sun, 15 May 2016 09:10:08 -0700

Boston Red Sox 1B David Ortiz is not in the starting lineup against Houston Astros SP Chris Devenski Sunday, May 15. 3B Travis Shaw will start at first base, while 1B Hanley Ramirez will serve as the designated hitter. 2B Josh Rutledge will start at third base and is batting seventh in the lineup.

Fantasy Tip: Ramirez and Shaw have played well and should be starters in all fantasy leagues. Rutledge has only one hit in his last nine at-bats and is not a great option for most owners.

Red Sox | David Ortiz takes a seat

Tue, 10 May 2016 12:14:10 -0700

Boston Red Sox 1B David Ortiz is not in the starting lineup against Oakland Athletics left-handed SP Sean Manaea Tuesday, May 10. 2B Josh Rutledge draws into the lineup at second base and is hitting sixth. 1B Hanley Ramirez is serving as the designated hitter and batting cleanup, while 3B Travis Shaw moves across the diamond to first base.

Fantasy Tip: Ortiz is just receiving a breather. Rutledge has seven hits in 14 at-bats but doesn't give you much hope for power, as he's never reached double-digit long balls in a single season. He's a low-end desperation play in daily leagues. Ramirez and Shaw continue to produce at a high level and are solid picks in any fantasy format this evening.
