Description: Red Sox designated hitter David Ortiz is not in the lineup against the Rays on Thursday.
Insight: It is ashame for fantasy owners because Ortiz has great numbers against Jeremy Hellickson in his career. But the Red Sox feel content in not giving it their all the last week. Yoenis Cespedes will be the designated hitter on Thursday.
 
9/25/2014 10:35:00 AM
Description: Red Sox designated hitter David Ortiz is hitting .385 with three home runs and four RBI against Rays starter Jeremy Hellickson in his career.
Insight: Ortiz had the day off on Wednesday, but with this matchup, we expect him to be back in there on Thursday. He should be in your lineup too.
 
9/24/2014 11:56:00 AM
Description: Wednesday is not the day to start Red Sox DH David Ortiz in your fantasy lineup.
Insight: He's just 1-for-10, a single, against Rays right-hander Jake Odorizzi. Big Papi has hit 35 homers and knocked in 104 runs this year, the eighth time he's put together a 30-100 season.
 
9/21/2014 10:58:00 AM
Description: Red Sox DH David Ortiz is getting the day off on Sunday.
Insight: It is just a routine day of rest for Big Papi. He continues to rake the ball, as he is third in the AL with 35 homeruns and tied for third with 104 RBI. Ortiz has shown no signs of a decline, just yet.
 
9/20/2014 10:03:00 AM
Description: Red Sox DH David Ortiz went 3-for-5 with the game-winning home run on Friday against the Orioles, but should not be in fantasy lineups for Saturday.
Insight: That's because he's an ugly 2-for-24 (.083) without an extra base hit against Orioles right-hander Chris Tillman. Ortiz has once again put up solid power numbers with 34 homers and 102 RBI, this just isn't a good matchup.
 
9/19/2014 10:58:00 PM
Description: Red Sox DH David Ortiz hit 3-for-5 with the game-winning home run on Friday against the Orioles.
Insight: Ortiz actually opened up the Red Sox scoring with a solo home run in the fourth. He drove in a run on a single in the fifth as Boston took a 3-1 lead. Then in the 10th, he hit a two-run bomb to give the Red Sox a 5-3 victory. It was Ortiz's fifth multi-home run game of the year and second of September.
 
9/18/2014 3:40:00 PM
Description: Red Sox DH David Ortiz is back in the starting lineup on Thursday.
Insight: Ortiz was away from the Red Sox for a week tending to a private family emergency. He is starting at first base on Thursday in Pittsburgh.
 
9/17/2014 4:07:00 PM
Description: Red Sox DH David Ortiz is not in Wednesday's starting lineup.
Insight: Not unexpected as they are in an NL city and there is no DH available. Ortiz is batting just .263, but with 32 home runs and 99 RBI. He might get one start out of the three-game series.
 
9/16/2014 4:00:00 PM
Description: Red Sox DH David Ortiz is not in Tuesday staring lineup.
Insight: Ortiz left for a family emergency Sunday but should be back in time for the game. They are playing in Pittsburgh which means no DH, however, so he likely would only start one of the three games anyway.
 
9/14/2014 6:51:00 PM
Description: Red Sox DH David Ortiz left Sunday's game against the Royals due to a family emergency.
Insight: Ortiz has already left to return home to the Dominican Republic. Fantasy owners should not count on him to play in Pittsburgh at the beginning of next week.
 
9/9/2014 11:57:00 AM
Description: Red Sox DH David Ortiz is just 2-for-21 (.095) against Orioles right-hander Chris Tillman.
Insight: Ortiz isn['t hitting for a high average this season, but he's still knocking them out of the park (32 HR) and knocking in runs (98). I just wouldn't expect him to add to the list Tuesday.
 
9/7/2014 10:28:00 AM
Description: Red Sox DH David Ortiz is not in the starting lineup on Sunday.
Insight: It looks to be just a day of rest for the 38-year-old. Yoenis Cespedes will DH Sunday.
 
9/5/2014 12:02:00 AM
Description: Red Sox DH David Ortiz cracked a pair of home runs Thursday night against Yankees pitching.
Insight: Ortiz isn't the best DH this season, that award will go to Victor Martinez, but Ortiz has done his job of knocking in runs. He's hit 32 homers and is just two short of his eighth 100-RBI season.
 
9/3/2014 10:12:00 AM
Description: Red Sox DH David Ortiz is a lifetime .550 hitter (11-for-20) versus Yankees right-hander Hiroki Kuroda.
Insight: Ortiz has been in and out of the lineup of late including a routine day off Monday. He's just 2-for-15 over his last four games, but this favorable matchup should get him going again. He's batting .263 on the season, but producing solid numbers with 30 HR and 95 RBI. Start him.
 
9/1/2014 10:30:00 AM
Description: Red Sox DH David Ortiz is out of the lineup for Monday against Drew Smyly and the Rays.
Insight: Ortiz has been in and out of the lineup of late with various nicks and scrapes, but had a nice 4-for-7 history against Smyly so this is a bit of a surprise. Napoli will be the DH, despite an 0-for-7 mark against the left-hander.
 
8/29/2014 10:15:00 AM
Description: Red Sox DH David Ortiz is 5-for-12 with a home run and eight RBI against Rays young right-hander Chris Archer.
Insight: Ortiz has been in and out of the lineup of late with various nicks and scrapes, but Big Papi is batting .267 with 30 home runs and 94 RBI this season.
 
8/27/2014 4:44:00 PM
Description: Red Sox DH David Ortiz will return to the Red Sox' lineup Wednesday.
Insight: Ortiz fouled a ball off his right foot on Sunday and sat out both games on Monday and Tuesday. Big Papi is batting .265 with 30 home runs and 93 RBI this season.
