Red Sox | Kelly Johnson, Craig Breslow placed on trade waivers

Fri, 08 Aug 2014 12:10:40 -0700

Boston Red Sox 3B Kelly Johnson and RP Craig Breslow were placed on revocable trade waivers Friday, Aug. 8.

Fantasy Tip: This is standard procedure in August. Johnson's fantasy value would improve if he were traded to a team where everyday at-bats were available. He is currently a deep mixed league and AL-only option.

Red Sox | Kelly Johnson activated, Mookie Betts optioned

Thu, 07 Aug 2014 13:09:16 -0700

Boston Red Sox 3B Kelly Johnson (groin) was activated from the disabled list Thursday, Aug. 7. In a corresponding move, OF Mookie Betts was optioned to Triple-A Pawtucket.

Fantasy Tip: Johnson is likely to split time at third base with Will Middlebrooks. Both are only deep mixed league and AL-only options, unless one of them gains a definitive edge in playing time. Continue to hold Betts in deep keeper/dynasty formats, especially if you're playing for next season.

Red Sox | Infield tentatively set

Fri, 01 Aug 2014 02:25:07 -0700

Boston Red Sox SS Xander Bogaerts figures to get playing time at the position now that SS Stephen Drew was dealt to the New York Yankees, and 3B Kelly Johnson will fill in at that position as 3B Will Middlebrooks works his way back into the lineup.

Red Sox | Will Middlebrooks returning Friday

Thu, 31 Jul 2014 15:35:56 -0700

Boston Red Sox 3B Will Middlebrooks (finger) will be activated from the disabled list Friday, Aug. 1.

Fantasy Tip: The writing was on the wall for a Middlebrooks return once the Red Sox traded Stephen Drew to the rival Yanks. Middlebrooks could enter into a platoon with Kelly Johnson at third base when he returns, but Middlebrooks figures to see the majority of the playing time. If you're in need at a corner infield spot in a deep mixed league, Middlebrooks might be just what the doctor ordered, just don't expect much help in the BA department.

Red Sox | Kelly Johnson acquired

Thu, 31 Jul 2014 14:28:05 -0700

The Boston Red Sox acquired 3B Kelly Johnson from the New York Yankees Thursday, July 31, in exchange for SS Stephen Drew.

Fantasy Tip: Boston's acquisition of Johnson will allow Xander Bogaerts to move back to his natural position, shortstop. That could make him more comfortable at the plate, as well. Johnson's value increases with this move, since he should have more consistent playing time, at least until the BoSox think Will Middlebrooks (finger) is ready to return.

Yankees | Stephen Drew acquired

Thu, 31 Jul 2014 12:45:27 -0700

The New York Yankees acquired SS Stephen Drew from the Boston Red Sox Thursday, July 31, in exchange for 2B Kelly Johnson.

Fantasy Tip: Drew is an interesting acquisition. He can spell Derek Jeter down the stretch and could presumably play some second base with Brian Roberts tiring in the second half. His playing time will likely be frustrating for owners, however. Drew is primarily an AL-only asset at this point.
