Red Sox | Eduardo Rodriguez off to good start

Wed, 03 Jun 2015 12:45:26 -0700

Boston Red Sox SP Eduardo Rodriguez has seven or more strikeouts in each of his first two American League starts. The last lefty pitcher in the AL to accomplish that feat was Al Leiter in 1987.

Fantasy Tip: Rodriguez ($4,900, 9.8% of cap) is playing off a small sample size here, but the fact is his second start has gone about as well as the first. He may yet fade this season, but Rodriguez has been a rare bright spot in an otherwise disappointing year for Boston. Keep an eye on him.

Red Sox | Blake Swihart out again

Wed, 03 Jun 2015 09:11:40 -0700

Boston Red Sox C Blake Swihart is out again in Game 1 of the team's doubleheader Wednesday, June 3. C Sandy Leon is starting and hitting eighth in the batting order against Minnesota Twins SP Phil Hughes.

Fantasy Tip: Leon ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) should be ignored at FantasyScore if you are playing with the early slate of games today.

Red Sox | Pablo Sandoval sitting out Game 1

Wed, 03 Jun 2015 07:46:00 -0700

Boston Red Sox 3B Pablo Sandoval is out of the lineup for Game 1 of the doubleheader Wednesday, June 3. 3B Brock Holt is in his place.

Fantasy Tip: Holt ($2,200, 4.4% of cap) leaves much to be desired for a FantasyScore flyer.

Red Sox | Xander Bogaerts kicking skid

Tue, 02 Jun 2015 19:04:35 -0700

Boston Red Sox SS Xander Bogaerts had two hits, including a double, a run scored and a stolen base during Boston's 1-0 win over the Minnesota Twins Tuesday, June 2. It was his fifth hit over the past two games, which was proceeded by an 0-for-15 six-game slump.

Fantasy Tip: Bogaerts ($3,700, 7.4% of cap) was surging before the slump, so it is encouraging that it only lasted a week. Now, he appears back on track to continue his breakout season. The 22-year-old shortstop might not wow in any particular category, but he is capable of tilting the scales in all five standard categories. He should be owned in all but shallow mixed leagues, and even there, he should be on your radar. In favorable matchups, he is a solid mid-priced play in FantasyScore contests, too.

Red Sox | Clay Buchholz stymies Twins

Tue, 02 Jun 2015 18:55:52 -0700

Boston Red Sox SP Clay Buchholz threw eight scoreless innings with eight strikeouts during Boston's 1-0 win over the Minnesota Twins Tuesday, June 2. Buchholz allowed just three hits and issued two walks.

Fantasy Tip: It was Buccholz's ($5,700, 11.4% of cap) fourth consecutive start with two earned runs or fewer allowed. And outside three rough outings, he has limited opponents and pitched well. FantasyScore players should view the Boston hurler as a value start when he lands in a favorable matchup. Up next, Buchholz will faces the Oakland Athletics Sunday, June 7, and he is worth considering for usage in daily contests given his recent run.

Red Sox | Blake Swihart sitting vs. Twins

Tue, 02 Jun 2015 13:27:09 -0700

Boston Red Sox C Blake Swihart is not in the starting lineup Tuesday, June 2. C Sandy Leon is behind the plate and hitting eighth in the batting order against Minnesota Twins SP Mike Pelfrey.

Fantasy Tip: Leon ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) has only eight hits in 42 at-bats (.190) this season, including just two RBI. He's a very weak catching option on FantasyScore anytime he's in the lineup.

Red Sox | Rick Porcello to start Game 2

Mon, 01 Jun 2015 20:22:49 -0700

Boston Red Sox SP Rick Porcello is scheduled to work the second game of a doubleheader Wednesday, June 3, against the Minnesota Twins.

Fantasy Tip: Porcello is 2-4 with a 5.45 ERA in 12 starts over 66 innings against the Twins since the start of the 2012 season. FantasyScore players should look elsewhere Wednesday night rather than risking $4,500 (or 9.0% of cap).

Red Sox | Eduardo Rodriguez to work Wed.

Mon, 01 Jun 2015 20:21:51 -0700

Boston Red Sox SP Eduardo Rodriguez is scheduled to work in Game 1 of the doubleheader Wednesday, June 3, against the Minnesota Twins.

Fantasy Tip: Rodriguez was sharp May 28 in Texas in his first start, giving up just three hits and two walks with seven strikeouts over 7 2/3 innings in a win. He could be a solid play in FantasyScore if he can stick around in the rotation.

Red Sox | Clay Buchholz pushed to Tuesday

Mon, 01 Jun 2015 20:20:55 -0700

Boston Red Sox SP Clay Buchholz will start Tuesday, June 2, against the Minnesota Twins after his scheduled start Monday, June 1, was rained out.

Fantasy Tip: Buchholz went just 1-3 in the month of May, but he had a respectable 3.31 ERA with quality starts in each of the past four outings. He has received a total of just seven runs over his past five outings. FantasyScore players can still trust him at $5,400 (or 10.8% of cap), especially since he allowed just one run over 7 1/3 innings last time out in Minnesota.

MLB | Red Sox-Twins postponed

Mon, 01 Jun 2015 10:52:10 -0700

The game between the Boston Red Sox and Minnesota Twins for Monday, June 1, has been postponed due to rain. It'll be made up as part of a doubleheader Wednesday, June 3.

Fantasy Tip: Make sure you avoid all players from these two teams for your FantasyScore lineups this evening.

Red Sox | Justin Masterson makes rehab start

Mon, 01 Jun 2015 09:13:52 -0700

Boston Red Sox SP Justin Masterson (shoulder) gave up three runs and two hits while walking two and striking out two in a rehab start for Class AAA Pawtucket Sunday, May 31.

Fantasy Tip: Masterson ($3,800, 7.6% of cap) should be ready to return to the rotation in short order. Boston is currently using a six-man rotation, and there are several candidates that would be in danger of being bumped out, including Joe Kelly and Steven Wright. Masterson had a 6.37 ERA in seven starts this year before being injured, so you'll want to make sure he has a juicy matchup before even considering him at FantasyScore again.

Red Sox | Sandy Leon catching Saturday

Sat, 30 May 2015 12:47:21 -0700

Boston Red Sox C Sandy Leon is starting behind the plate against the Texas Rangers Saturday, May 30. C Blake Swihart is getting the day off.

Fantasy Tip: Leon ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) is only batting .205 this year and is not worthy of FantasyScore consideration. Swihart ($2,600, 5.2% of cap) is batting .429 over the past week and should return to the lineup Sunday, May 31.

Red Sox | Brock Holt playing Saturday

Sat, 30 May 2015 12:46:25 -0700

Boston Red Sox INF Brock Holt is starting at shortstop and batting eighth against the Texas Rangers Saturday, May 30. SS Xander Bogaerts is getting the day off.

Fantasy Tip: Holt ($2,200, 4.4% of cap) is batting .287 with one home run and 11 RBIs over 101 at-bats this year. He is a nice source of cap relief for FantasyScore owners.

Red Sox | David Ortiz back in lineup

Sat, 30 May 2015 12:35:38 -0700

Boston Red Sox DH David Ortiz (flu) is back in the starting lineup against the Texas Rangers Saturday, May 30, according to bench coach Torey Lovullo.

Fantasy Tip: In addition to battling the flu, Ortiz ($4,400, 8.8% of cap) was out of the lineup to work on his hitting mechanics. He only has one hit in his last 16 at-bats and is batting just .183 over the last four weeks. Avoid using him in FantasyScore until he has shown signs of regaining his hitting stroke.

Red Sox | Hanley Ramirez back on track

Fri, 29 May 2015 21:00:23 -0700

Boston Red Sox OF Hanley Ramirez homered for the second game in a row, going 2-for-4 with two RBIs and two runs scored in a 7-4 loss to the Texas Rangers Friday, May 29.

Fantasy Tip: Ramirez ($5,600, 11.2% of cap) had been in a month-long slump, but he appears to be catching fire. Feel free to start using him again at FantasyScore.
