Boston Red Sox Starting Lineup 9/19/18 Red Sox Lineup

103-49, 2nd in AL East

Confirmed Conf

BOS 1 @ NYY 10

Final

Updated:

Boston struggled last season with power, so they went out and added J.D. Martinez. He has filled the role they lacked since David Ortiz left, and is mashing baseballs as he was paid to do. Martinez completes the outfield at times, but they have three stellar outfielders, rounding out what may be the best outfield in baseball. Mookie Betts has been the Boston lead off bat this year, and is in contention for MVP. Andrew Benintendi follows up in his second year, and had a slow start, but heated up and is now a potential all-star. Jackie Bradley Jr. has been an unlucky bat with his hard-contact, but is better known for his defense out in center field.

Notes

These bats are the more expensive in the fantasy industry, but they also come with large upside on a nightly basis. In addition to these names, Boston re-signed Mitch Moreland, who has been excellent at first base. He offers up value at the position, and is usually hitting cleanup. Boston did trade for Steve Pearce, who is likely going to platoon against left-handed pitching giving his track record. Rafael Devers is a young third base option for the future, and has been trending in the right direction over the last month or two. Devers alongside Eduardo Nunez has rounded out a pretty solid infield, but don’t have the upside of the outfield options. With Dustin Pedroia on the DL, Nunez and Brock Holt have been filling in. While they don’t offer up a lot of power, the contact rates are on the higher side. Boston is another team to carry three catchers, and Blake Swihart was one that is usually the odd man out. Christian Vazquez and Sandy Leon both split time behind the dish, but all three have had little offensive value this season.
