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.

Boston Red Sox OF Jonny Gomes is away from the team Monday, April 22, to attend the birth of his third child.

Boston Red Sox manager John Farrell said OF Jonny Gomes could start more often against right-handed pitchers, not just Wednesday, April 3.
Fantasy Tip: This is probably due to the fact that David Ortiz is on the sidelines due to injury. Once Papi returns, that might not be the case anymore. But if you own him in an AL league, you'll take it.

Boston Red Sox manager John Farrell said OF Jonny Gomes will serve as the designated hitter Monday, April 1, but did not say who would be the team's starting catcher.

Boston Red Sox OF Jackie Bradley has a 50-50 shot to make the team's opening day roster, according to one source. The team is keeping an open mind as far as putting Bradley on the team, but the injuries to DH David Ortiz (heels, Achilles') and SS Stephen Drew (concussion) have bolstered his chances. Bradley hasn't spent any time above Class AA. If he were to make the team, he'd be the everyday left fielder with OF Jonny Gomes starting as the designated hitter with Ortiz out. Bradley could start in the majors and then be sent down when Ortiz returns, so the team doesn't impact his service time. Bradley has a slash line of .444/.545/.578 in spring training.
Fantasy Tip: Bradley's impressive showing this spring will go a long way in helping him make an impact on the major league roster this year even if he doesn't break camp with the team. Keeper leaguers and AL-only owners should be concerned with this development.
