LF,CF,RF - BOS
Red Sox outfielder Alex Verdugo is leading off for Saturday's game against the Toronto Blue Jays.
A day after belting two home runs, Verdugo earns a promotion to the top of the lineup. With so many Red Sox regulars struggling, Verdugo could provide a much-needed spark atop the lineup. And if he can stick there, he should see a significant bump in value for fantasy owners.
Alex Verdugo went 2-for-3 and slugged two solo homers and robbed a homer on defense in Friday’s 5-3 victory over the Blue Jays.
Verdugo is starting to heat up hitting three homers in his last two games. The 24-year-old outfielder may be moved to the leadoff spot by the Red Sox which would increase his fantasy value. Right now Verdugo should be owned in all 12 team fantasy leagues and deeper.
Alex Verdugo went 1-for-3 at the plate with a two-run home run Wednesday in the win against the Rays.
The home run was the first of the season and first as a member of the Red Sox for Verdugo. The 24-year-old outfielder is now hitting .258 on the season and looks like he is starting to heat up.
Alex Verdugo went 1-for-2 at the plate on Tuesday as the Red Sox lost to the Rays by a 5-1 score.
Verdugo is hitting .250 on the season and has yet to pick up an extra-base hit. The 24-year-old outfielder is 7-for-28 with all his hits being singles. Verdugo should start to heat up and now is the time to buy low on him.
Alex Verdugo went 2-for-3 at the plate with a walk and scored a run on Thursday as the Red Sox beat the Mets.
Verdugo is hitting .333 over five games but sat two games already with left-handed pitchers on the mound. If the 24-year-old outfielder can get in the lineup everyday, he will be worth owning in most fantasy leagues.
