Red Sox | Jon Lester scratched for Wednesday

Tue, 29 Jul 2014 20:11:21 -0700

Updating a previous report, Boston Red Sox SP Jon Lester has been scratched from his scheduled start Wednesday, July 30, as a deal appears imminent. SP Brandon Workman will pitch in his place.

Fantasy Tip: There is no official word on where Lester might be going, if he is in fact going. Milwaukee is not believed to be a destination, while Baltimore, Pittsburgh and Seattle have been mentioned as potential landing spots, among others. When it is official, we'll keep you abreast and note the fantasy implications the move carries.

Red Sox | Jon Lester still listed to start Wednesday

Tue, 29 Jul 2014 19:29:45 -0700

Boston Red Sox SP Jon Lester is still listed as the probable pitcher for Wednesday, July 30, against the Toronto Blue Jays. Manager John Farrell said Tuesday, July 29, that SP Brandon Workman will start if Lester is dealt.

Fantasy Tip: Lester is a very risky play for those in daily fantasy leagues, and fantasy leagues in general. It's possible he could be moved between now and 7pm ET Wednesday, or at the very least he part of trade discussions where he is scratched as a precaution. Daily fantasy owners will want to steer clear of him just to be on the safe side.

Red Sox | Henry Owens on fire at Double-A

Tue, 29 Jul 2014 19:29:04 -0700

Boston Red Sox SP Henry Owens is the first 14-game winner in Double-A Portland history.

Fantasy Tip: Owens could be on the fast track to either Triple-A Pawtucket, or perhaps even the big club, if the team trades John Lackey, Jon Lester, or both, before the July 31 trade deadline. He has had an impressive season, and has emerged as a strong stash candidate in AL-only fantasy leagues and long-term keeper formats.

Red Sox | Brandon Workman lined up for Wednesday

Tue, 29 Jul 2014 13:16:03 -0700

Boston Red Sox SP Brandon Workman is lined up to make his next start Wednesday, July 30, in case SP Jon Lester is traded by then.

Fantasy Tip: If you're in need of pitching and in an AL-only league, you may want to stash Workman just in case, if you have the room.

Tue, 29 Jul 2014 12:37:01 -0700

Boston Red Sox 1B Mike Napoli and OF Shane Victorino are not in the lineup Tuesday, July 29.

Red Sox | Many teams in on Jon Lester

Tue, 29 Jul 2014 11:36:30 -0700

Boston Red Sox SP Jon Lester has become a hot trade commodity in recent days, and the Toronto Blue Jays, Seattle Mariners, Milwaukee Brewers, St. Louis Cardinals, Los Angeles Dodgers, Baltimore Orioles and Miami Marlins are on his trail.

Fantasy Tip: It's looking more and more likely that Lester will be dealt by the deadline on Thursday. A move probably won't change his fantasy value all that much, though.

Red Sox | Jon Lester's demands didn't lead to trade talk

Tue, 29 Jul 2014 09:22:49 -0700

Boston Red Sox SP Jon Lester's agent denied a report that claimed that Lester's representatives told the Red Sox what it would take to sign him, which led the team to consider trading him. The report said Lester was seeking "a competitive offer consistent with the market" and speculated that would be in the range of $22 million to $24 million per year. Lester remains firm on his desire to wait until after the season to discuss a contract extension.

Red Sox | Not looking to trade for Matt Kemp

Mon, 28 Jul 2014 18:16:59 -0700

The Boston Red Sox are not looking to trade for Los Angeles Dodgers OF Matt Kemp at the moment, a source confirmed Monday, July 28.

Fantasy Tip: It sounds like the team is conflicted on whether they will be buyers or sellers at the trade deadline. A recent 1-5 stretch heading into play Monday has the team's odd looking rather long at a postseason spot, although they're not snuffed out yet. It appears the team will need to figure out their direction in the next couple of days before this Kemp rumor (or any others) gains traction.
