  • Tyler O'Neill Homers Twice Monday

    Headshot for Tyler O'Neill

    Boston Red Sox outfielder/designated hitter Tyler O'Neill was in the middle of the home run parade in Monday's 7-3 win over the Blue Jays. O'Neill went 2-for-4 with a pair of solo home runs, a walk, and an intentional walk. The 28-year-old clobbered a first-inning Yusei Kikuchi fastball deep into the left-field seats and took him deep again to center field in the third. O'Neill has been somewhat of a fantasy disappointment since his stellar 2021 season, but he has slashed a solid .258/.354/.534 with 14 HR, 37 runs scored, 25 RBI, and one stolen base in 206 plate appearances this season. The stolen bases are not close to what he has provided before, but fantasy managers can't complain given his respectable batting average and high power contribution.

  • Red Sox Place Wilyer Abreu On The 10-Day Injured List

    Boston Red Sox outfielder Wilyer Abreu (ankle) was placed on the 10-day injured list Tuesday and will see a specialist, according to manager Alex Cora. He underwent an MRI, which revealed a lot of inflammation in his ankle. Abreu will need to let the swelling subside and most likely won't need more than 10 days. The loss of Abreu has depleted the Red Sox outfield to the point where first baseman-designated hitter Bobby Dalbec will make his first MLB start in right field for Tuesday's home game against the Atlanta Braves. Abreu is slashing .272/.344/.485 with six homers, 22 RBI, 26 runs scored, and seven stolen bases in 53 games. The Red Sox, however, are optimistic outfielder Tyler O'Neill (knee) will return as soon as Wednesday.

  • Tyler O'Neill Playing In Rehab Game Tuesday, Aiming For Wednesday Return

    Boston Red Sox outfielder Tyler O'Neill (knee) will begin a rehabilitation assignment with Triple-A Worcester on Tuesday and is optimistic about returning to the majors on Wednesday. O'Neill was placed on the 10-day injured list with right knee inflammation on May 29, retroactive to May 26. He is slashing .236/.343/.500 with 11 home runs, 17 RBI, and 29 runs scored in 41 games. Should he be activated from the injured list on Wednesday, fantasy managers will have no problem adding O'Neill's power back into their lineups.

  • Enmanuel Valdez Homers Twice On Saturday

    Boston Red Sox infielder Enmanuel Valdez went 3-for-4 with two home runs, three RBI, and an additional run scored in Saturday's 6-3 win over the Detroit Tigers. He blasted a solo shot off Reese Olson in the bottom second inning to the tie game 1-1. His homer traveled 399 feet with an exit velocity of 106.4 mph. He followed up that homer with a two-run blast off Olson again in the bottom of the sixth frame. Valdez was recalled from Triple-A Worcester on Wednesday to replace Tyler O'Neill (knee), who was placed on the 10-day injured list. The 25-year-old is hitting .179 (17-for-95) with four home runs and 14 RBI over 31 games in 2024. Fantasy managers in deep-league or AL-Only formats looking for outfield help can consider adding Valdez to their rosters.

  • Tyler O'Neill Could Return Next Week

    Headshot for Tyler O'Neill

    Boston Red Sox outfielder Tyler O'Neill (knee) recently received a cortisone shot in his knee, which he said has helped him. The 28-year-old has been out since May 26 due to right knee inflammation. The good news is that O'Neill could return as early as Wednesday when he's eligible to be removed from the injured list. Fantasy managers should be patient and hold onto O'Neill for a little longer. He has 11 homers in 41 games, so his power alone is worth keeping him on fantasy rosters.

  • Optimism That Tyler O'Neill Won't Be Out Long

    Headshot for Tyler O'Neill

    Both Boston Red Sox manager Alex Cora and outfielder Tyler O'Neill (knee) are optimistic that his stint on the injured list will be on the shorter end. O'Neill is nursing inflammation in his right knee after an MRI on Wednesday showed no structural damage, and he's eligible to return from the 10-day IL as soon as Wednesday's game against the visiting Atlanta Braves. The speedy 28-year-old slugger was hitless in his last 15 at-bats before hitting the shelf, and nine of his 11 home runs on the campaign for the Red Sox came back in April. O'Neill is also hitting a mere .159 (13-for-82) with two homers, six RBI, and 10 runs scored over his last 22 games, but he's still a fine stash in fantasy for his upside in the power department and everyday role in Boston's outfield when healthy.

  • Tyler O'Neill Placed On Injured List

    Headshot for Tyler O'Neill

    Boston Red Sox outfielder Tyler O'Neill (knee) has been placed on the 10-day injured list ahead of Wednesday's game against the Baltimore Orioles. The move is retroactive May 26 as the 28-year-old has been dealing with the issue for a few days now. The team is hopeful that it'll be a minimal stint on the injured list for O'Neill. Fantasy managers should hold onto him considering how well he was slugging the ball before the injury. In a corresponding move, Enmanuel Valdez has been recalled from Triple-A. In the meantime, Rob Refsnyder will serve as the designated hitter on Wednesday.

  • Tyler O'Neill Undergoing More Tests On His Knee

    Headshot for Tyler O'Neill

    Boston Red Sox outfielder Tyler O'Neill (knee) was sent back to Boston to get more imaging done on his right knee on Wednesday, which means that he won't be available for fantasy managers for the series finale against the Baltimore Orioles. It remains to be seen if O'Neill will be ready to play on Thursday for the start of a series versus the visiting Detroit Tigers. Manager Alex Cora said the additional tests are more for reassurance than the team fearing anything is significantly wrong with O'Neill, but it opens up more of a possibility that the 28-year-old will be forced to go on the injured list. O'Neill was forced to miss his third straight game with his knee injury and has slowed down at the plate since a hot month of April. If he's forced to miss more time going into the weekend, it will only benefit Rob Refsnyder, who has been swinging a hot bat in 2024 in limited action.

  • Tyler O'Neill Still Out Tuesday

    Headshot for Tyler O'Neill

    Boston Red Sox outfielder Tyler O'Neill (knee) remains out of the starting lineup on Tuesday as the team takes on the Orioles in Baltimore at Camden Yards. O'Neill will now miss his third straight game with a sore knee that kept him out of a couple of games over the weekend. The 28-year-old's injury seems very minor, though, so he should be considered day-to-day with a shot at returning as soon as Wednesday. With O'Neill out again on Tuesday, Rob Refsnyder will serve as the designated hitter and will bat third in the lineup versus Orioles right-hander Grayson Rodriguez. After a strong start in his first year in Beantown, O'Neill has cooled off some and is now slashing .236/.343/.500 with an .843 OPS, 11 homers and 17 RBI in 148 at-bats. Refsnyder has been great so far for Boston, going 24-for-71 (.338), but he lacks power upside that fantasy managers are looking for.

  • Tyler O'Neill Planning To Return Tuesday

    Headshot for Tyler O'Neill

    The plan for Boston Red Sox outfielder Tyler O'Neill (knee) is to take Sunday and Monday off before returning to play on Tuesday in Baltimore against the Orioles. O'Neill is out of Sunday's lineup against the Milwaukee Brewers and is not going to play on Memorial Day on Monday in the series opener at Camden Yards. The 28-year-old is currently dealing with a sore right knee, but the Red Sox don't view the injury as very serious, so fantasy managers should consider him day-to-day for now. Jarren Duran is playing left field on Sunday and is hitting leadoff, while Ceddanne Rafaela is in center field and occupying the nine-hole against Milwaukee and starter Tobias Myers. O'Neill has been a solid power contributor in his first year in Boston, clubbing 11 homers in 148 at-bats, but he only has 17 RBI to show for it.

  • Tyler O'Neill Dealing With Knee Injury

    Headshot for Tyler O'Neill

    Boston Red Sox outfielder Tyler O'Neill (knee) is day-to-day with a knee injury. He was forced out of Saturday's game against the Milwaukee Brewers after revealing that his knee has been bothering him for a while, and he is getting treatment. O'Neill said it didn't happen in any particular play, but that's probably affected his swing. The 28-year-old has struck out nine times over his last four games. He is slashing .236/.343/.500 with 11 home runs, 17 RBI, 29 runs, and a stolen base over 41 games in 2024. O'Neill will get the day off on Sunday for the series finale versus Milwaukee but will likely avoid the injured list for now.

  • Tyler O'Neill Grabs Pine On Wednesday

    Headshot for Tyler O'Neill

    Boston Red Sox outfielder Tyler O'Neill is starting Wednesday's game against the Rays in Tampa on the bench. With O'Neill starting on the bench for this one, Rob Refsnyder will serve as the team's designated hitter and will bat fifth against Rays right-hander Ryan Pepiot, who is returning from a stint on the injured list. O'Neill started his first year off in Boston strong in April, but so far in May he's gone just 11-for-66 (.167) with two home runs, five RBI and 30 strikeouts in 75 plate appearances and 18 games. It's dropped his season line to .248/.358/.525, but O'Neill remains a lineup regular for Boston and has still provided fantasy managers with a very useful 11 home runs, 17 RBI and 29 runs scored in 141 at-bats. Refsnyder has minimal power but is hitting .333 (20-for-60) on the year. He's never faced Pepiot in his career.

  • Connor Wong, Tyler O'Neill Not Playing Against Rays

    Headshot for Tyler O'Neill

    Boston Red Sox catcher Connor Wong and outfielder Tyler O'Neill will not be in the team's starting lineup on Thursday against the visiting Tampa Bay Rays. Reese McGuire will catch Cooper Criswell and will bat seventh, while Rob Refsnyder will start in left field and hit in the No. 3 spot against Rays right-hander Zack Littell. Wong is hitting a remarkable .340/.370/.530 with five home runs and 15 RBI in his first 100 at-bats in 2024, but with an xBA of .340, he leads all of baseball with the biggest different in actual average and xBA, so fantasy managers should expect some eventual regression in that department. He also has an wOBA of .391 and an xwOBA of .309. O'Neill could use a day off after striking out seven total times in the last two games to drop his season line to .256/.371/.554 with a .924 OPS, 10 home runs and 16 RBI in 121 at-bats.

  • Wilyer Abreu Back In Lineup And Hitting Second

    Headshot for Wilyer Abreu

    Boston Red Sox outfielder Wilyer Abreu sat out the team's 3-2 win against the Washington Nationals on Sunday with a left-handed pitcher on the mound. But Abreu will return to the lineup and bat second in Monday's series opener against the Tampa Bay Rays. The 24-year-old hasn't seen many opportunities in the two-hole for Boston this season, only hitting there twice over the past 18 games. However, this is now his second consecutive start batting in that spot. That should lead to more run-scoring chances, considering both Tyler O'Neill and Rafael Devers are batting behind him. The young outfielder could also start all four games in this series with the Rays throwing out all right-handed pitchers. He is hitting .282 with three home runs, nine doubles, and 14 RBI in 34 games this season.

    Boston Red Sox outfielder Tyler O'Neill came up clutch for his team during Sunday's game against the Chicago Cubs. The right-handed slugger came up to the plate with runners at the corners and no outs in the ninth inning. O'Neill delivered a hit to left field that scored Jarren Duran and gave the Red Sox the 5-4 win. The 28-year-old is now slashing .329/.447/.729 with nine home runs and 12 RBI this season.
