Fantasy Tip: Holt ($2,000, 4.0% of cap) is an enigma, as he is a man without a position at the moment. However, Holt is hitting .457 even though he does not play two or three of his team's games each week. Speculation is Red Sox manager John Farrell wants to get Holt more playing time, so Holt is worth the start when he plays, especially at this low salary.

Fantasy Tip: Miley ($3,800, 7.6% of cap) may have signed one of the worst free-agent deals in recent memory. Then again, it could be just a rough start. Whatever the case, sit Miley down until he figures it out. His fantasy value is rapidly deflating at this rate.

Fantasy Tip: Ortiz ($4,900, 9.8% of cap) has struggled to begin the 2015 season, hitting just .194, although he has managed to hit four home runs. Holt ($2,000, 4.0% of cap) becomes an excellent FantasyScore play as he has begun the season hitting .424 with a home run and a stolen base.

Boston Red Sox RP Koji Uehara blew a 10th-inning save opportunity Saturday, April 25, in a loss to the Baltimore Orioles. Uehara inherited a one-run lead, but took the loss after allowing a triple to OF Adam Jones, a sacrifice fly to 1B Chris Davis and a home run to OF David Lough.
Fantasy Tip: Uehara has three saves in five appearances so far this season. With this outing leading to his first blown save of the season, Uehara remains safe for now in the closer role. Uehara's 12.46 K/9 would have him tied for 18th amongst relievers if he had enough innings to qualify. Owners need to remain patient, although injuries are the bigger concern for the 40-year-old.

Fantasy Tip: On the plus side, Sandoval ($4,200, 8.4% of cap) is hitting .362 against right-handed pitching, but he needs to be avoided at FantasyScore against southpaws for the time being.
Sat, 25 Apr 2015 14:20:29 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Daniel Nava ($1,800, 3.6% of your cap) and Allen Craig ($2,100, 4.2%) will likely split time in Victorino's absence. Nava is hitting just .194, and Craig is hitting .136. Both are talented players, but they can't be used on FantasyScore until their bats awaken.

Boston Red Sox SP Rick Porcello focused on improving his sinker after allowing eight runs and 12 hits in five innings against the Baltimore Orioles Sunday, April 19. Porcello fixed his arm slot to make sure he stayed on line and had the right "whip" action with his arm.
Fantasy Tip: Porcello ($4,900, 9.8% of cap) wasn't an attractive FantasyScore option Friday night while facing the Orioles yet again.

Fantasy Tip: Shane Victorino's hamstring injury and Castillo's hefty contract could land Castillo in Boston sooner than later, and Castillo should be stashed in the majority of formats. Continue to check for updates on Castillo's recovery and for news of a recall. He has the upside to tip the scales in all fantasy categories.
Fri, 24 Apr 2015 12:34:38 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Holt ($2,000, 4.0% of cap) is worth considering for daily contests Friday, and in the majority of his starts. He is off to an excellent start this season and sports a .414 batting average. While the sample size is small, Holt's positional versatility is a plus in the virtual game, and if he can continue to find nearly everyday at-bats, he has mixed league value in deep formats.
Fri, 24 Apr 2015 12:23:56 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Make sure to remove Bogaerts ($3,000, 6.0% of cap) from your daily lineups Friday, and at this point it appears it is a routine day off. Holt ($2,000, 4.0% of cap) has gone 12-for-29 to start the season, and could be earning more playing time due to his hot start. He is a viable FantasyScore option for the majority of his starts, including Friday. And he is beginning to tip the scales in deep mixed leagues, especially if he continues to find close to everyday at-bats.
Fri, 24 Apr 2015 12:21:32 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Nava ($1,800, 3.6% of cap) is an excellent low-priced play for FantasyScore owners Friday. His spot in the order should yield a few RBI opportunities, and he has a career .291 batting average against right-handed pitchers.
Fri, 24 Apr 2015 12:15:17 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Make sure to remove Victorino ($2,500, 5.0% of cap) from your fantasy lineups Friday, and this will be the second consecutive game he has missed with the injury. Nava ($1,800, 3.6% of cap) is a career .291 hitter against right-handed pitching and should see a few RBI opportunities batting behind the big bats in the Boston lineup. Nava is worth considering in FantasyScore contests, especially at his cap hit.

Boston Red Sox SP Clay Buchholz allowed one earned run on two hits and struck out 10 in a road start against the Tampa Bay Rays Thursday, April 23, and he has allowed just one run in his last 27 2/3 innings in Tampa Bay.
Fantasy Tip: Aside from a disastrous outing against the Yankees, Buchholz ($3,900, 7.8% of cap) has been solid this season. He has allowed two earned runs or less and struck out at least seven in his other three starts, and he makes a nice value play at the pitcher spot at FantasyScore right now.
Thu, 23 Apr 2015 21:16:51 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Daniel Nava ($1,800, 3.6% of cap) drew the start in Victorino's absence Thursday and drove in a run on a sacrifice fly. If Nava earns another start, he is worth considering at FantasyScore if you are trying to free up a lot of cap space.

Boston Red Sox OF Hanley Ramirez is not in the starting lineup Thursday, April 23. OF Allen Craig is starting in left field and hitting seventh in the batting order against Tampa Bay Rays SP Jake Odorizzi.
Fantasy Tip: Craig ($2,100, 4.2% of cap) is hitting just .118 (2-for-17) to start the season. In what was a rough 2014 season for him, he batted only .208 (71-for-341) with five of his eight home runs against right-handers. Consider Craig a low-end outfield option at FantasyScore today.
