Red Sox | Shane Victorino could need surgery

Fri, 01 Aug 2014 15:41:48 -0700

Boston Red Sox OF Shane Victorino (back) could need surgery that would keep him out for a lengthy period, according to manager John Farrell. The team is waiting to view Victorino's MRI results before making any further decisions. Victorino has already missed 71 of the team's first 108 games this year.

Fantasy Tip: Like we said before, you shouldn't wait around for a healthy Victorino in standard mixed leagues at this point. Besides, his playing time might be shaky if he does return this year, for various reasons.

Red Sox | Allen Craig starting

Fri, 01 Aug 2014 15:18:23 -0700

Boston Red Sox OF Allen Craig is in the starting lineup for his debut with the team Friday, Aug. 1, and he's playing left field. Manager John Farrell said OF Daniel Nava will continue to see regular at-bats with Craig around, and it won't be a strict platoon situation.

Fantasy Tip: Hmmm. Craig had already become a frustrating play with the St. Louis Cardinals, and it looks like, at least initially, that might also be the case in his new home. The change of scenery could still spark a solid finish to the season, though, so follow his progress in deep mixed and AL-only leagues.

Red Sox | Joe Kelly likely to start next week

Fri, 01 Aug 2014 15:15:34 -0700

Boston Red Sox SP Joe Kelly is likely to make his debut for the team next week against his former team, the St. Louis Cardinals.

Fantasy Tip: Crazy timing that'll be, huh. Anway, with the move to the American League East, Kelly's value should drop a bit, but it's not like he was on the rosters of many to begin with. We feel that Kelly should only be owned in AL-only leagues.

Red Sox | Yoenis Cespedes not in lineup

Fri, 01 Aug 2014 15:13:22 -0700

Boston Red Sox OF Yoenis Cespedes is not in the starting lineup Friday, Aug. 1, because he was still en route to the ball park after being traded Thursday, July 31. He'll be on the lineup card, though, and eligible to enter the game, according to manager John Farrell.

Fantasy Tip: You'll have to wait another day to use Cespedes in daily leagues in his new digs.

Red Sox | Mookie Betts won't be around long

Fri, 01 Aug 2014 15:04:42 -0700

Boston Red Sox OF Mookie Betts' stay on the major league roster is expected to be short-lived.

Fantasy Tip: Betts is probably only useful in daily games for the time being, since he might be sent back to the minors soon.

Red Sox | Junichi Tazawa to be setup man

Fri, 01 Aug 2014 14:41:05 -0700

Boston Red Sox RP Junichi Tazawa will be the primary setup man after RP Andrew Miller was dealt to the Baltimore Orioles, according to manager John Farrell. The rest of the bullpen roles need to be sorted out.

Fantasy Tip: This was kind of expected. Tazawa is now next in line to take over the ninth-inning duties should Koji Uehara be injured. Tazawa, even without being a closer, can be useful to owners looking to improve their ERA and WHIP.

Red Sox | Shane Victorino placed on DL

Fri, 01 Aug 2014 13:42:04 -0700

Boston Red Sox OF Shane Victorino (back) was placed on the disabled list Friday, August 1, with a strained back.

Fantasy Tip: Victorino continues to struggle through an injury-plagued campaign. Victorino is worth stashing, if you have available DL slots or bench space.

Red Sox | Mike Carp designated for assignment.

Fri, 01 Aug 2014 12:49:10 -0700

Boston Red Sox 1B Mike Carp was designated for assignment Friday, August 1.

Fantasy Tip: Carp owners might want to be patient in AL-only formats. He could join another organization and maintain some fantasy value.

Red Sox | Recall Mookie Betts, activate Will Middlebrooks

Fri, 01 Aug 2014 12:36:59 -0700

Boston Red Sox OF Mookie Betts was recalled from Triple-A Pawtucket, and 3B Will Middlebrooks (finger) was activated from the disabled list Friday, August 1. Middlebrooks is batting seventh and playing third base. Betts is batting ninth and playing center field.

Fantasy Tip: Middlebrooks has plus-power, but his .197 batting average leaves a lot to be desired. Without guaranteed playing time, he is only viable in AL-only formats and deep mixed leagues. Betts could be worth a flier in deep mixed league and AL-only formats, but keep your expectations in check. He might receive limited at-bats.

Red Sox | Clay Buchholz will start Sunday

Fri, 01 Aug 2014 12:23:56 -0700

Boston Red Sox SP Clay Buchholz will start Sunday, August 3, against the New York Yankees.

Fantasy Tip: Buchholz is being bumped ahead in the rotation with the departure of Jon Lester.

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 | Shane Victorino has back issue

Thu, 31 Jul 2014 15:52:10 -0700

Updating a previous report, Boston Red Sox OF Shane Victorino (back) is expected to miss some time with a back injury.

Fantasy Tip: It seems likely that Victorino will go back on the disabled list, possibly as early as tomorrow. With the Red Sox adding two new outfielders at the trade deadline, playing time might be hard to come by when he returns. Victorino should probably only be stashed in deep mixed and AL-only leagues.

Red Sox | Shane Victorino back to DL?

Thu, 31 Jul 2014 15:48:02 -0700

Boston Red Sox OF Shane Victorino (undisclosed) could be headed back to the disabled list soon. He will "miss a little time," according to general manager Ben Cherington. OF Yoenis Cespedes will play right field and OF Allen Craig will be in left.

Fantasy Tip: Victorino just can't seem to stay healthy as he ages. Don't feel the need to hang onto him in standard leagues if he goes back on the DL. Jackie Bradley Jr. seems safe, for now.

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.
