Wed, 15 Apr 2015 14:41:29 -0700
Fantasy Tip: It looks like Sandoval ($4,200, 8.4% of cap) should be ready to return to the lineup Friday night when the team faces the Baltimore Orioles. He should be good to go for FantasyScore lineups that night, too.

Fantasy Tip: Miley ($3,800, 7.6% of cap) disappointed his daily owners today in a matchup against the depleted Nationals' lineup. That won't give his owners confidence in using him his next time out at FantasyScore.
Wed, 15 Apr 2015 09:39:08 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Craig ($2,100, 4.2% of your cap) has mashed against lefties in his career, but we need to see evidence he's over the foot issues before using him on FantasyScore.
Wed, 15 Apr 2015 09:31:38 -0700
Fantasy Tip: The Red Sox face left-handed starter Gio Gonzalez, and Allen Craig ($2,100, 4.2% of your cap) slots in at first with Mike Napoli at DH. Craig is just 1-for-8 on the season, and we need to see evidence that he's past the foot issues that dogged him last season before using him on FantasyScore.
Wed, 15 Apr 2015 07:54:17 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Bogaerts ($3,000, 6.0% of your cap) hit .263 with five homers in just 156 at-bats against lefties last year. He's hitting .433 with seven RBI on the young season and is a low-end SS option on FantasyScore.
Wed, 15 Apr 2015 07:53:35 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Holt ($2,000, 4.0% of your cap) hit .293 against lefties last season and faces Gio Gonzalez. He's worth a low-end 2B flyer on FantasyScore.
Wed, 15 Apr 2015 07:52:00 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Sandoval ($4,200, 8.4% of your cap) should only miss a day or two with a bruised foot. Brock Holt ($2,000, 4.0%) is 7-for-11 with four RBIs on the young season. He hasn't faced Gio Gonzalez before, but he hit .293 against lefties last year. He's a low-end second base option on FantasyScore.

Updating a previous report, Boston Red Sox 3B Pablo Sandoval (foot) had no structural damage based on a scan done at Fenway Park Tuesday, April 14. He left the game against the Washington Nationals after being hit on the foot by a pitch.
Fantasy Tip: Panda is considered day to day with a bruised on his left foot. If he is forced to miss time, Hanley Ramirez ($5,000; 10.0% of cap) or perhaps Brock Holt ($2,000; 4.0% of cap) will make a start at the hot corner Wednesday. FantasyScore owners will want to avoid Sandoval until he can officially return and prove his health.

Fantasy Tip: Bogaerts ($3,000; 6.0% of cap) might be able to play as soon as Wednesday, but FantasyScore players will want to see him officially return and make it through a full game without any setbacks before pulling the trigger on using him.

Fantasy Tip: Sandoval ($4,200; or 8.4% of cap) might simply be day to day, although there is no official word from the club. If he is forced to miss game time, Brock Holt ($2,200; or 4.4% of cap) might get a start at the hot corner. Holt could be a strong value in FantasyScore at this price level. Hanley Ramirez ($5,000; or 10.0% of cap) is also capable of handling the duties at 3B, and he filled in when Panda left early.

Fantasy Tip: The Red Sox have no reason to rush Castillo back with Mookie Betts playing so well, and Boston has good outfield depth on the major league roster. It doesn't appear to be a significant injury for Castillo. Continue to stash him in all fantasy formats.
Tue, 14 Apr 2015 12:35:10 -0700
Fantasy Tip: With Victorino ($2,500, 5.0% of cap) starting off the season slow, Nava ($1,800, 3.6% of cap) has seen decent playing time in the first week. Nava has four hits in his first 11 at-bats and four RBI. However, a matchup against Strasburg doesn't look very tempting Tuesday for daily gamers.
Tue, 14 Apr 2015 12:26:24 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Bogaerts ($3,000, 6.0% of cap) is not in the starting lineup Tuesday, so make sure he's not in your FantasyScore lineups. Brock Holt ($2,000, 4.0% of cap) is starting at the 6, but he's a weak play going against Washington Nationals starter Stephen Strasburg.

Boston Red Sox OF Rusney Castillo (shoulder) injured his shoulder attempting to make a diving play at Triple-A Pawtucket over the weekend. The team didn't release extensive details, but multiple sources said the prognosis was encouraging. He'll be placed on the 7-day disabled list at Pawtucket.
Fantasy Tip: Castillo is one of the top prospects in the system, and this will curtail his quest for a callup for a bit. He could still surface sometime before the All-Star break.

Fantasy Tip: Betts ($4,100, 8.2% of cap) has seven hits in his first 30 at-bats this year (.233) with two home runs and six RBI, and he's one of the most electric and energetic players in the game right now. It's hard not to be excited about having him in your daily lineups, even against a top-line starting pitcher.
