Fantasy Tip: As noted in a previous tip, Ramirez's ($4,800, 9.6% of cap) production has been hurting fantasy owners for weeks. He has a .193/.223/.333 slash line since Wednesday, July 1, and at this point, it isn't out of the question to bench him in all seasonal leagues until he shows signs of life at the dish.
Mon, 31 Aug 2015 13:41:09 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Greg Bird ($3,700, 7.4% of cap) will continue to see everyday at-bats for the duration of Teixeira's ($5,300, 10.6% of cap) absence. Continue to be patient with Teixeira in seasonal formats, but it isn't out of the question to replace him if you need production in the now. Check back for updates.
Mon, 31 Aug 2015 13:31:51 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Pedroia ($3,600, 7.2% of cap) is worth stashing in all formats, but how often his plays and how much production he returns remains to be seen. All said, you'll want to keep your expectations in check. Additionally, Brock Holt ($3,700, 7.4% of cap) will see a reduced role when Pedroia returns.

Fantasy Tip: Make sure to avoid Gardner ($4,600, 9.2% of cap) in all fantasy formats Monday. The veteran is struggling mightily, too, with a disappointing .200/.298/.250 slash line in August. Young ($3,400, 6.8% of cap) is a lefty specialist and owns a .331/.389/.619 line against southpaws for the season. He is a strong FantasyScore play Monday.
Mon, 31 Aug 2015 12:52:24 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Make sure to avoid the surging Swihart ($2,800, 5.6% of cap) in all fantasy formats Monday. His seasonal stock is rising, as the rookie owns a .373/.439/.492 slash line through 17 games in August. FantasyScore players shouldn't view Hanigan ($3,100, 6.2% of cap) as anything more than a low-priced flier Monday.
Mon, 31 Aug 2015 12:41:37 -0700
Boston Red Sox OF Hanley Ramirez (shoulder) is not in the starting lineup Monday, Aug. 31. OF Jackie Bradley Jr. is starting in left field and batting ninth against New York Yankees SP Ivan Nova Monday.
Fantasy Tip: Rusney Castillo ($4,200, 8.4% of cap) is also in the lineup, and stands as an excellent value play alongside Bradley ($4,100, 8.2% of cap) at FantasyScore Monday. After all, Nova ($6,100, 12.2% of cap) owns a 7.17 ERA over his past four starts. Ramirez ($4,800, 9.6% of cap) has been a serious disappointment dating back to the beginning of July, as he owns a .193/.223/.333 slash line since. He has only played 14 games in August, too.
Sun, 30 Aug 2015 14:14:17 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Pedroia ($3,600, 7.2% of cap) could return here soon, but the team may go easy on him when he comes back. It's worth keeping an eye on this situation.
Sun, 30 Aug 2015 13:47:57 -0700
Fantasy Tip: This is a nice honor for Ortiz ($5,100, 10.2% of cap), who is hitting .345-7-19 but has a .200 average in the past seven days. Leave Ortiz in your lineup when he faces right-handed pitching, as that's where he does the most damage.
Sun, 30 Aug 2015 13:09:45 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Entering play Sunday, Aug. 30, Machi was 1-0 with a 1.39 ERA and three saves through 46 games this season. He should be grabbed in AL-only and deep mixed leagues if you are desperate for saves.
Sun, 30 Aug 2015 07:52:08 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Make sure to avoid d'Arnaud ($3,300, 6.6% of cap) in all fantasy formats Sunday. Recker ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) is nothing more than a desperation source of cap relief at FantasyScore Sunday, and you should probably aim higher.
Sun, 30 Aug 2015 07:40:46 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Make sure to avoid Cespedes ($5,900, 11.8% of cap) in all fantasy formats Sunday. He has eight home runs and 23 RBI through his 26 games with the Mets. Lagares ($3,400, 6.8% of cap) stands as a potential value play at FantasyScore Sunday, as he has performed extremely well when called upon of late. Lagares has a .327/.340/.571 slash line over his last 50 plate appearances, and he owns the handedness advantage.
Sun, 30 Aug 2015 07:34:31 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Without a designated hitter option in the road series at New York, the Red Sox have swapped in Ortiz ($5,100, 10.2% of cap) at first base for two games. The veteran slugger has been on fire in August and owns a .345/.427/.679 slash line with seven home runs. In fact, Ortiz currently has exactly seven home runs in each of the past three months after hitting just six through April and May. He is a risky FantasyScore play Sunday, though. Shaw ($4,600, 9.2% of cap) will return to regular at-bats next week, and he is worth a look in the majority of seasonal leagues.
Sun, 30 Aug 2015 07:26:05 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Castillo ($4,200, 8.4% of cap) is having a monster second half. He has a .352/.387/.568 slash line with 19 runs, four home runs and 19 RBI over 25 games. He isn't playing every day, though, so his seasonal value is limited as a result. FantasyScore owners will likely want to look elsewhere Sunday, too, as Syndergaard ($7,900, 15.8% of cap) has been stingy at home this seaosn. Bradley ($4,100, 8.2% of cap) has been playing well, but his seasonal value is also capped platooning with Castillo in right field.
Sun, 30 Aug 2015 07:19:45 -0700
Boston Red Sox OF Hanley Ramirez (shoulder) is not in the starting lineup Sunday, Aug. 30. OF Alejandro De Aza is playing left field and batting eighth against New York Mets SP Noah Syndergaard Sunday.
Fantasy Tip: Ramirez ($4,800, 9.6% of cap) has been out since Wednesday, Aug. 26, as he seems to be battling a continuous string of injuries. Seasonal owners will want to remain patient. The injury isn't expected to be serious. Typically, De Aza ($3,400, 6.8% of cap) is a worthy FantasyScore flier, but Snydergaard ($7,900, 15.8% of cap) owns a sub-2.00 ERA at Citi Field, so you should be able to find better value in daily contests Sunday.
Sat, 29 Aug 2015 18:32:06 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Kelly ($6,100, 12.2% of cap) won all six of his starts this month, and he has allowed two runs or less in five straight outings. He is worth a look as a cheap starting option at FantasyScore right now.
