Red Sox | Hanley Ramirez out with shoulder fatigue

Fri, 28 Aug 2015 14:47:25 -0700

Updating a previous report, Boston Red Sox OF Hanley Ramirez (shoulder) is dealing with right shoulder fatigue and is considered day-to-day.

Fantasy Tip: Ramirez ($4,800, 9.6% of cap) is a notoriously slow healer, so don't be shocked if he misses some time. Jackie Bradley Jr. ($4,100, 8.2% of cap) and Rusney Castillo ($4,200, 8.4% of cap) should both see full-time duty for the duration of Ramirez's absence. Continue to check back for updates and double-check the Boston lineup before locking your own rosters this weekend.

Red Sox | Hanley Ramirez scratched

Fri, 28 Aug 2015 13:45:31 -0700

Boston Red Sox OF Hanley Ramirez (undisclosed) is a late scratch from the starting lineup Friday, Aug. 28. OF Jackie Bradley Jr. is replacing him in left field against New York Mets SP Matt Harvey Friday.

Fantasy Tip: Ramirez ($4,800, 9.6% of cap) can't stay healthy, and it has seriously capped his seasonal value. FantasyScore players will want to make sure to avoid him Friday. Bradley ($4,100, 8.2% of cap) draws a tough matchup against Harvey ($9,400, 18.8% of cap), so you're likely best to look elsewhere in daily contests. Check back for updates on Ramirez's status.

Mets | Daniel Murphy sitting vs. Red Sox

Fri, 28 Aug 2015 13:28:09 -0700

New York Mets 2B Daniel Murphy is not in the starting lineup Friday, Aug. 28. SS Wilmer Flores is starting at shortstop and batting sixth against Boston Red Sox SP Henry Owens Friday.

Fantasy Tip: Make sure to avoid Murphy ($3,500, 7.0% of cap) in all fantasy formats Friday. The Mets have been playing musical chairs with their lineup over the past two weeks, and it is working, as they're currently one of the best offenses in the league. Whoever is starting is worth a long look at FantasyScore, including Flores ($4,500, 9.0% of cap) Friday.

Red Sox | Travis Shaw sitting against the Mets

Fri, 28 Aug 2015 12:15:45 -0700

Boston Red Sox 1B Travis Shaw is not in the starting lineup Friday, Aug. 28. 1B David Ortiz is playing first base and batting fourth against New York Mets SP Matt Harvey Friday.

Fantasy Tip: Without the option to utilize a designated hitter, Ortiz ($5,100, 10.2% of cap) is playing first base. The veteran has 14 runs, six home runs and 18 RBI with a .325/.414/.625 slash line through 22 games and August. He is a viable option at FantasyScore Friday, but Harvey ($9,400, 18.6% of cap) presents a tough matchup. Shaw ($4,600, 9.2% of cap) has been great for Boston and fantasy owners this month. He is worth owning in the majority of seasonal leagues at this point. And while he is slowing down of late, he does have seven home runs in August.

Red Sox | No Jackie Bradley vs. Mets

Fri, 28 Aug 2015 12:08:32 -0700

Boston Red Sox OF Jackie Bradley Jr. is not in the starting lineup Friday, Aug. 28. OF Rusney Castillo is starting in right field and batting seventh against New York Mets SP Matt Harvey Friday.

Fantasy Tip: Castillo ($4,200, 8.4% of cap) and Bradley ($4,100, 8.2% of cap) have been platooning in right field of late, which is a hit to their seasonal value. Castillo owns a .382/.417/.603 slash line over his past 18 games with 15 runs and 18 RBI, but he shouldn't be viewed as a slam-dunk FantasyScore option against Harvey ($9,400, 18.8% of cap) Friday.

Red Sox | Clay Buchholz has a throwing timeline

Wed, 26 Aug 2015 16:21:09 -0700

Boston Red Sox SP Clay Buchholz (elbow) will begin throwing Monday, Aug. 31, when the team's current road trip ends and will be examined Wednesday, Sept. 2. There is a strong possibility he will not make another start this season.

Fantasy Tip: Buchholz should be viewed as a desperation stash at this stage of the season, and in most leagues, you'll be able to better utilize his roster spot. At best, he returns for a late-season start or two, and there is no guarantee he'll pitch well if he makes it back, either.

Red Sox | Brock Holt batting second vs. White Sox

Wed, 26 Aug 2015 15:16:30 -0700

Boston Red Sox OF Brock Holt is starting at third base and batting second against Chicago White Sox SP Chris Sale Wednesday, Aug. 26. 3B Pablo Sandoval is not in the starting lineup Wednesday.

Fantasy Tip: Sandoval ($4,000, 8.0% of cap) draws out against southpaw Sale ($9,300, 18.6% of cap), as it is a daunting matchup, and Sandoval hasn't handled lefties well this season. Holt ($3,700, 7.4% of cap) is riding a hot streak with a 1.139 OPS over his past seven games, but you're going against the grain starting Holt against Sale.

Red Sox | No David Ortiz vs. White Sox

Wed, 26 Aug 2015 15:02:34 -0700

Boston Red Sox 1B David Ortiz is not in the starting lineup Wednesday, Aug. 26. OF Hanley Ramirez is batting fourth as the designated hitter against Chicago White Sox SP Chris Sale, which allowed OFs Jackie Bradley Jr. and Rusney Castillo to draw into the lineup.

Fantasy Tip: While Sale ($9,300, 18.6% of cap) has had a few peaks and valleys of late, he presents a brutally tough matchup, and starting Boston hitters at FantasyScore is incredibly risky. Unless you're after a contrarian stack, you're likely better off avoiding them entirely.

Red Sox | Rick Porcello activated by Red Sox

Wed, 26 Aug 2015 10:10:03 -0700

Boston Red Sox SP Rick Porcello (triceps) has been activated from the disabled list and is expected to get the start on the road Wednesday, Aug. 26, against SP Chris Sale and the Chicago White Sox.

Fantasy Tip: Porcello ($3,900, 7.8% of cap) wasn't very good before he landed on the DL and we don't like his chances against the White Sox ace on the road in his first start back. Melky Cabrera ($4,300, 8.6% of cap) and Gordon Beckham ($3,200, 6.4% of cap) are intriguing options if they get the start on FantasyScore, both have owned Porcello in the past.

Red Sox | Hanley Ramirez confirms move to 1B

Tue, 25 Aug 2015 18:10:56 -0700

Updating a previous report, Boston Red Sox OF Hanley Ramirez confirmed Tuesday, Aug. 25, that he is moving to first base by next season, and he is also on board with management's decision. "I'm looking forward to it," Ramirez said.

Fantasy Tip: The move will allow Rusney Castillo ($4,200, 8.4% of cap) and Jackie Bradley Jr. ($4,100, 8.2% of cap) to play outfield full-time in 2015. It's uncertain what this means for the future of 1B Travis Shaw, a big-time prospect waiting in the wings.

Red Sox | Joe Kelly turns heads Monday

Tue, 25 Aug 2015 16:04:39 -0700

Boston Red Sox SP Joe Kelly impressed scouts with his pitching arsenal and ability to maintain high velocity late into the game Monday, Aug. 25. One scout said his secondary pitches were "plus-plus," while another noted the incredible transformation Kelly has made since he saw him in May.

Fantasy Tip: Kelly ($6,100, 12.2% of cap) owns a 1.82 ERA with 20 punchouts through 24 2/3 innings over his past four starts, which were all wins. There have been flashes of this type of production at points in the past, so while you should remain a touch hesitant, time is running out to make an impact in seasonal leagues. Kelly is worth a speculative flier for owners looking for pitching help. At FantasyScore, Kelly could be worth a contrarian consideration for his next start against the New York Mets

Red Sox | Eduardo Rodriguez will have start skipped

Tue, 25 Aug 2015 15:58:30 -0700

Boston Red Sox SP Eduardo Rodriguez will have his next start skipped. SPs Henry Owens, Joe Kelly and Wade Miley will start during the weekend series against the New York Mets.

Fantasy Tip: Rodriguez ($5,700, 11.4% of cap) is pushing up against his innings limit, so look for the Red Sox to be cautious with him down the stretch. In most formats, he is nothing more than a streaming option and FantayScore start when landing in a plus-matchup, though. Check back for updates on when he'll make his next start. For the season, Rodriguez owns a 4.39 ERA, a 4.29 FIP and a 1.24 WHIP.

White Sox | Tyler Saladino draws out vs. Red Sox

Tue, 25 Aug 2015 15:44:51 -0700

Chicago White Sox 3B Tyler Saladino is not in the starting lineup Tuesday, Aug. 25. 2B Gordon Beckham is starting at third base and batting ninth against Boston Red Sox SP Wade Miley Tuesday.

Fantasy Tip: Make sure to avoid Saladino ($3,100, 6.2% of cap) in all fantasy formats Tuesday. He is batting just .230 with a .546 OPS in August, so his four stolen bases are his biggest fantasy return of late. You'll want to aim higher in the majority of fantasy formats. FantasyScore players should view Beckham ($3,200, 6.4% of cap) as a risky start Tuesday. After all, he is batting just .188 this season.

Red Sox | Brock Holt sitting out vs. White Sox

Tue, 25 Aug 2015 15:38:57 -0700

Boston Red Sox OF Brock Holt is not in the starting lineup Tuesday, Aug. 25. 2B Josh Rutledge is starting at the keystone and batting ninth against Chicago White Sox SP Jose Quintana Tuesday.

Fantasy Tip: Strangely, Holt ($3,700, 7.4% of cap) continues to draw out of the lineup in favor of Rutledge ($2,500, 5.0% of cap). The former is batting .300 in August with 10 runs and 11 RBI through 17 games. Rutledge, meanwhile, is hitting just .265, and he is nothing more than a low-priced flier at FantasyScore.

Red Sox | No Blake Swihart vs. White Sox

Tue, 25 Aug 2015 15:33:30 -0700

Boston Red Sox C Blake Swihart is not in the starting lineup Tuesday, Aug. 25. C Ryan Hanigan is starting behind the plate and batting seventh against Chicago White Sox SP Jose Quintana Tuesday.

Fantasy Tip: Make sure to avoid Swihart ($2,800, 5.6% of cap) in all fantasy formats Tuesday. He has turned up his production over the past few months, but especially in August. Swihart owns a .370/.420/.457 slash line for the month. Hanigan ($3,100, 6.2% of cap) should be viewed as nothing more than a desperation source of cap relief at FantasyScore Tuesday.
