  • Vaughn Grissom Starting Rehab Assignment Friday

    Headshot for Vaughn Grissom

    Boston Red Sox infielder Vaughn Grissom (groin, hamstring) will start his minor-league rehab assignment with Triple-A Worcester on Friday. Grissom has yet to make his Red Sox debut in the regular season in 2024 due to groin and hamstring issues that he dealt with late in spring training, but he's getting closer and could be activated early next week if he doesn't have any setbacks with Worcester this weekend. Even before Trevor Story suffered a season-ending shoulder injury, the 23-year-old Grissom was projected to play every day for Boston this year (mostly at second base). Grissom was blocked in Atlanta but will play every day in Beantown and should be picked up off the waiver wire in mixed fantasy leagues right now if he's available. If he stays healthy, Grissom has 15-15 potential.

  • Red Sox Going With Platoons At Shortstop, Second Base

    Headshot for Romy Gonzalez

    The Boston Red Sox plan to platoon at both shortstop and second base after the serious injury to shortstop Trevor Story (shoulder) last Friday. Romy Gonzalez and David Hamilton will mostly split time at shortstop, with Pablo Reyes and Enmanuel Valdez splitting time at second. Outfielder Ceddanne Rafaela will also see time up the middle in Beantown. Vaughn Grissom (groin, hamstring) will mostly work at the keystone but will also get reps at shortstop. Gonzalez was called up from Triple-A Worcester on Monday after slashing .321/.375/.821 with three homers and 10 RBI in 32 plate appearances on the farm. Grissom, who is expected to start a rehab assignment this weekend, should eventually see regular playing time for the BoSox at the keystone when he's healthy and is by far the most attractive fantasy player of all these middle-infield names.

  • Vaughn Grissom Could Start Rehab Assignment Friday

    Headshot for Vaughn Grissom

    Boston Red Sox manager Alex Cora said that infielder Vaughn Grissom (groin, hamstring) could start a minor-league rehab assignment on Friday. Meanwhile, outfielder Rob Refsnyder (toe) will start a rehab assignment with Triple-A Worcester on Wednesday. Grissom was forced to begin the 2024 season in his first year in Beantown on the injured list. When healthy, he was expected to serve as the team's primary second baseman, but with Trevor Story (shoulder) potentially out for the entire season now, Grissom is going to see work at the keystone and the 6 on his rehab assignment. Regardless of where the 23-year-old is playing up the middle, he should be guaranteed regular playing time once he makes his season debut in the big leagues and should be scooped up off the waiver wire right now if he's available in deep-mixed fantasy leagues.

  • Vaughn Grissom Takes Live Batting Practice

    Headshot for Vaughn Grissom

    Boston Red Sox manager Alex Cora said on Friday that second baseman Vaughn Grissom (groin, hamstring) participated in live batting practice and is progressing well at the plate. Cora added that Grissom will fly to Boston and be with the team on Tuesday for the Red Sox' home opener. While Cora didn't have an exact date for Grissom to begin a rehab assignment, he expects the infielder to be playing in games soon. Unable to log any spring training at-bats due to a strained left groin and hamstring, Grissom will likely need extended reps before debuting for fantasy managers in 2024. The 23-year-old former top prospect should be able to return during mid-to-late April, and he was being regularly drafted as a late-rounder in pre-spring drafts. After Trevor Story (shoulder) went down with a scary shoulder injury on Friday, Grissom may eventually be needed as a shortstop for the BoSox and belongs an all watchlists.

  • Vaughn Grissom Could Start Rehab Work Next Week

    Headshot for Vaughn Grissom

    Boston Red Sox manager Alex Cora said on Monday that second baseman Vaughn Grissom (groin, hamstring) will come to Fenway Park on April 9 to be a part of the team's regular-season home opener festivities. Grissom has been ramping up in Fort Myers, and Cora's hope is that the infielder can start a minor-league rehab assignment shortly after that. The Red Sox acquired Grissom as the key piece of this past offseason's Chris Sale trade, so he is expected to be Boston's starting second baseman upon his return. While he struggles defensively, the 23-year-old former top Atlanta Braves prospect has slashed an encouraging .287/.339/.407 with 15 extra-base hits, 27 RBI, 29 runs scored, and five stolen bases across 216 career big-league at-bats. Keep Grissom on fantasy watchlists for now. In the meantime, Enmanuel Valdez and Pablo Reyes will maintain a platoon at the keystone.

  • Vaughn Grissom Not Expected Back Until Mid-April

    Headshot for Vaughn Grissom

    Boston Red Sox infielder Vaughn Grissom (groin) will not be ready for Opening Day and the target date is now "mid-April, probably late April," according to manager Alex Cora. While Grissom's groin injury this spring hasn't been considered serious, the 23-year-old's timeline continues to be pushed back as the Red Sox play it safe. Grissom is expected to be the team's primary starter at the keystone when he's healthy so the Red Sox would rather have him start the season late than risk a more serious injury. Fantasy managers should now expect him to miss most of the first month of the 2024 season, if not all of it. Grissom will finally have a shot at regular playing time in Beantown after being traded from the Braves, but his groin injury puts a damper on his fantasy upside as a middle-infield option in deep-mixed leagues to begin the year.

  • Vaughn Grissom Has A Groin Strain, Unlikely For Opening Day

    Headshot for Vaughn Grissom

    Boston Red Sox second baseman Vaughn Grissom is dealing with a groin strain and his status for Opening Day is in doubt according to manager Alex Cora. Grissom had yet to make his spring debut as a result of a hamstring injury, but now he's dealing with this. Hopefully he won't miss much time if he does begin the season on the IL, as the former eleventh-round pick was set to be the Red Sox starting second baseman after coming over from the Braves in the offseason. He showed enough with his bat during his time in Atlanta that he will have fantasy relevance when he's on the field, and he won't cost a high draft pick.

  • Red Sox Hoping Vaughn Grissom Can Play Sunday

    Headshot for Vaughn Grissom

    Boston Red Sox manager Alex Cora said that the team is aiming for second baseman Vaughn Grissom (hamstring) to make his Grapefruit League debut on Sunday. Grissom has been slowed in camp by a minor hamstring injury, but he appears ready to go this weekend and should also be ready for Opening Day by the end of March, barring a setback. The 23-year-old will be the team's starting second baseman in his first year in Beantown, and he has significant fantasy appeal to boot while being eligible at both middle-infield positions. In his career at the major-league level, he's hit .287/.339/.407 with five home runs, 27 RBI and five steals in 64 games for the Braves. Grissom has 15-15 potential if he can remain healthy, and he could even hit leadoff for the Red Sox against left-handers.

  • Vaughn Grissom To Be Slow-Played Due To Injury

    Headshot for Vaughn Grissom

    Boston Red Sox infielder Vaughn Grissom (hamstring) is dealing with a hamstring injury in camp and will be slow-played early in Grapefruit League action. However, manager Alex Cora expects Grissom to be ready for Opening Day in late March. It's a minor injury, but it's notable for a player trying to make an impact with his new team. If he's healthy, the 23-year-old is expected to open the 2024 season as Boston's starting second baseman. In 64 games with the Atlanta Braves the last two years, Grissom hit an impressive .287/.339/.407 with five home runs, 27 RBI and five stolen bases, but he was blocked by a stacked big-league roster. If he can stay healthy, he has the upside to hit 15 home runs and steal 15 bases while providing a high batting-average floor at the keystone for fantasy managers in a great hitter's park.

  • Romy Gonzalez Claimed By Red Sox

    Headshot for Romy Gonzalez

    The Boston Red Sox have claimed utility player Romy Gonzalez off waivers from the Chicago White Sox. The 27-year-old had been designated for assignment by Chicago in order to make 40-man roster space for relief pitcher John Brebbia. Gonzalez appeared in 44 games for the White Sox in 2023, hitting .194 with three home runs, seven stolen bases, and a .584 OPS across 97 trips to the plate. He struck out in a hefty 37.1% of his plate appearances and drew walks at a measly 2.1% clip. He spent the bulk of his time with the White Sox at second base but also appeared at third base, shortstop, and all three outfield spots with the club in 2023. He could battle for a utility role in Boston with Vaughn Grissom set to handle the bulk of duties at the keystone in 2024.
