Boston Red Sox OF Jackie Bradley isn't in the lineup against a tough lefty Tuesday, Sept. 10, but manager John Farrell said Bradley "is going to be in the mix" to replace OF Jacoby Ellsbury (foot) in certain matchups. OF Shane Victorino is starting in center field Tuesday, with OFs Jonny Gomes and Daniel Nava manning the corners.
Fantasy Tip: Bradley may be a candidate in cavernous mixed formats if you're looking for a stolen base boost. However, Bradley is probably best left to AL-only formats since he won't be playing every day.

Boston Red Sox OF Shane Victorino (back) is out of the lineup after aggravating his back injury Thursday, May 16.
Fantasy Tip: Daniel Nava and Jonny Gomes will once again gain at-bats if Victorino is out for an extended stretch. It seems more likely that Victorino could land on the disabled list this time around. Nava, who is a switch hitter, should be your first target in deep mixed leagues.

Boston Red Sox OF Shane Victorino (back) may not return to the lineup until Tuesday, April 30, but the team still isn't considering putting him on the disabled list.
Fantasy Tip: Daniel Nava remains in the lineup, but Jonny Gomes and Mike Carp may benefit the most if Victorino can't play by Tuesday and has to go on the DL. Jackie Bradley is an option to be brought back up from the minors, but after looking incredibly overmatched in his first big league stint, he probably would come off the bench.
