Red Sox | Henry Owens hurls quality start

Fri, 29 Apr 2016 19:38:22 -0700

Boston Red Sox SP Henry Owens allowed two runs on six hits over six innings in a no-decision against the New York Yankees Friday, April 29, with three walks and three strikeouts.

Fantasy Tip: Although Friday's outing was promising, Owens has only thrown four quality starts in 13 appearances at the MLB level since making his debut last season. He possesses a great deal of potential and should remain rostered in AL-only and dynasty fantasy leagues but his lack of consistency makes him a risky play in daily contests.

Red Sox | Joe Kelly throws bullpen session

Fri, 29 Apr 2016 19:29:01 -0700

Boston Red Sox SP Joe Kelly (shoulder) threw a 35-pitch bullpen session Friday, April 29. He is expected to throw another session Tuesday, May 2, before possibly beginning a rehab assignment, according to manager John Farrell.

Fantasy Tip: Kelly has been sidelined due to a right shoulder impingement and could return to action sometime next month if all goes well, so he should remain stashed in AL-only fantasy leagues. SP Henry Owens would be the pitcher most likely to lose his spot in the rotation when Kelly returns.

Red Sox | Clay Buchholz still looking for first win

Thu, 28 Apr 2016 19:55:00 -0700

Boston Red Sox SP Clay Buchholz (0-3) allowed five runs and eight hits over 6 1/3 innings in a loss to the Atlanta Braves Thursday, April 28, with four walks and two strikeouts.

Fantasy Tip: Buchholz has allowed exactly five runs in four of his first five starts this year and is too inconsistent to be viewed as a viable pitching option in daily fantasy contests.

Red Sox | Eduardo Rodriguez has first rehab start

Thu, 28 Apr 2016 17:12:56 -0700

Boston Red Sox SP Eduardo Rodriguez (knee) made his first rehab start for Class AAA Pawtucket Thursday, April 28. He went 3 2/3 innings, yielding three runs (two earned) on six hits and three walks. He also struck out two, while throwing 75 pitches, 45 of which for strikes. Rodriguez will get at least one more rehab start, if not two.

Fantasy Tip: The 23-year-old southpaw should be on a lot of people's radars, as he'll have the chance to make a noticeable impact when he's ready to join the Red Sox. In 21 starts as a rookie last season, Rodriguez was 10-6 with a respectable 3.85 ERA. With this year's team, he'll have a legitimate chance to eclipse that win total while contributing fine numbers.

Red Sox | Brock Holt with day off

Thu, 28 Apr 2016 12:28:42 -0700

Boston Red Sox 2B/OF Brock Holt is not in the starting lineup Thursday, April 28. OF Chris Young is starting in left field and is hitting seventh against Atlanta Braves SP Jhoulys Chacin.

Fantasy Tip: With so few games today, Young is worth a look as a low-priced daily flier, but his upside is limited facing a righty and not a lefty. In his career, Young has hit just .224 against righties.

Red Sox | David Ortiz passes two HOFers

Wed, 27 Apr 2016 21:36:54 -0700

Boston Red Sox DH David Ortiz collected three doubles with two runs scored and two RBIs Wednesday, April 27, against the Atlanta Braves. On his second double he passed Hall of Famers Ted Williams and Jimmie Foxx, and with his third double he tied George Brett with 1,119 extra-base hits in his career.

Fantasy Tip: Big Papi has picked up the pace, posting multi-hit games in four of his past seven outings to push his average from .275 to .313 since April 19.

Red Sox | Dustin Pedroia slams the Bravos

Wed, 27 Apr 2016 21:36:09 -0700

Boston Red Sox 2B Dustin Pedroia went 3-for-5 with a pair of homers, including a grand slam, and five RBIs Wednesday, April 27, against the Atlanta Braves.

Fantasy Tip: Petey has been red hot lately, posting multi-hit games in six of his past seven outings to raise his average from .268 to .333 just since April 20.

Red Sox | Steven Wright whiffs eight in win

Wed, 27 Apr 2016 21:35:23 -0700

Boston Red Sox SP Steven Wright allowed two runs - one earned - and three hits over seven innings with three walks and eight strikeouts in a win Wednesday, April 27, against the Atlanta Braves.

Fantasy Tip: That's four outings and four quality starts for Wright, who looks to be the new Tim Wakefield in Beantown. Fantasy owners can trust him in all AL-only leagues, and he is certainly worth using in deeper mixed formats and DFS as well.

Red Sox | Joe Kelly throws from distance

Wed, 27 Apr 2016 21:34:35 -0700

Boston Red Sox SP Joe Kelly threw from 120 feet Wednesday, April 27, as he makes his way back from a right shoulder impingement.

Fantasy Tip: Avoid using Kelly in fantasy leagues and DFS play until he can officially return from the 15-day disabled list and prove his health in at least one full start without any setbacks.

Red Sox | Pablo Sandoval feeling better

Wed, 27 Apr 2016 18:03:44 -0700

Boston Red Sox 3B Pablo Sandoval (shoulder) said he is still experiencing soreness in his strained left shoulder but claimed that much of the inflammation has subsided. He is scheduled to visit Dr. James Andrews Monday, May 2, and it will be determined at that point if he will need to undergo surgery.

Fantasy Tip: If surgery is deemed necessary, Sandoval could wind up missing the remainder of the 2016 season. He has already lost his starting job at the hot corner to 3B Travis Shaw, so he possesses little value in all fantasy formats.

Red Sox | Carson Smith to rehab this weekend

Wed, 27 Apr 2016 14:26:23 -0700

Boston Red Sox RP Carson Smith (forearm) is set for rehab appearances Friday, April 29, and Saturday, April 30, and he'll be available to return from the disabled list Tuesday, May 3.

Fantasy Tip: Check to see if Smith is available in your league. Because of his strikeout dominance, he can be useful in deeper mixed and AL-only leagues without the prospect of accumulating any saves.

Red Sox | David Ortiz back in DH role

Wed, 27 Apr 2016 12:19:24 -0700

Boston Red Sox 1B David Ortiz is back in the starting lineup and is hitting cleanup against Atlanta Braves SP Bud Norris Wednesday, April 27.

Fantasy Tip: After a two-game absence in a National League park, Big Papi is back in there with the series against the Braves moving to Fenway Park. Against Norris, Ortiz is a great play in all fantasy formats. Get him back into your lineups.

Red Sox | David Price fans 14

Tue, 26 Apr 2016 23:13:39 -0700

Boston Red Sox SP David Price matched a career-high with 14 strikeouts in his win over the Atlanta Braves Tuesday, April 26. He allowed two runs on six hits in eight innings.

Fantasy Tip: Despite a 5.76 ERA, he's now 3-0. April is his worst month historically, and he should start to settle in. He'll be a daily option to consider most days he starts.

Red Sox | Carson Smith back next week?

Tue, 26 Apr 2016 14:35:34 -0700

Boston Red Sox RP Carson Smith (forearm) is expected to be activated from the disabled list for the start of Boston's next road trip, which begins Tuesday, May 3.

Fantasy Tip: Smith won't have any save chances unless an injury in the bullpen opens up a more significant role, but his peripherals can be useful (11.8 K/9 last year with Seattle) in deeper mixed and AL-only leagues. Check to see if he's available in your league.

Red Sox | Pablo Sandoval to visit doctor Monday

Tue, 26 Apr 2016 14:33:10 -0700

Boston Red Sox 3B Pablo Sandoval (shoulder) is scheduled to visit Dr. James Andrews for a second opinion Monday, May 2.

Fantasy Tip: Sandoval hasn't made much progress because of swelling inside his shoulder. It's a situation that could require surgery and keep the Panda out for most, if not all, of 2016. With Travis Shaw playing well for Boston at third base, Sandoval doesn't have much hope of returning to a starting role anytime soon.
