  • Wilyer Abreu To Play Against Right-Handers

    Headshot for Wilyer Abreu

    Boston Red Sox manager Alex Cora said that outfielder Wilyer Abreu will play every game against right-handed pitchers. It's why outfielder Ceddanne Rafaela got the start at shortstop on Monday against the Cleveland Guardians. Abreu made his major-league debut last year and slashed .316/.388/.474 with an .862 OPS, two home runs, 14 RBI, three stolen bases and 10 runs scored in just 28 games played. In his first 11 contests in 2024, Abreu has gone 6-for-26 (.231) with no homers, two RBI and a steal in 29 plate appearances. The 24-year-old can be an asset for those in deep-mixed fantasy leagues now that he'll be playing regularly. He's a strong defender and will be mostly useful in leagues that count on-base percentage due to his patient approach as a hitter.

  • Tyler O'Neill Sitting On Saturday

    Boston Red Sox outfielder Tyler O'Neill will be on the bench in the second game of the three-game set against the Los Angeles Angels. O'Neill has been one of the best hitters of the season so far, posting an excellent .279/.426/.698, and is tied at the top in home run leaders with six. As a result, Wilyer Abreu will be batting in the two-hole and playing in right field. Abreu is off to a slow start to begin the season with a .190 AVG and just one extra-base hit. However, Abreu is a sneaky play in DFS as he should see plenty of at-bats and has a great matchup against Griffin Canning, who comes into today's game with a hefty 8.38 ERA.

  • Wilyer Abreu Back On The Bench Monday

    Boston Red Sox outfielder Wilyer Abreu is back on the bench for Monday's series opener versus the Oakland A's and right-hander Joe Boyle. The 24-year-old went 1-for-3 with a walk in Sunday's series finale with the Mariners but will begin a series with the A's on the bench. Abreu made his MLB debut in the 2023 season and impressed with a .316 average with two homers and three stolen bases across 85 trips to the plate. At the same time, he also benefited from a bloated .431 BABIP and struck out in an elevated 27.1% of his plate appearances. Tyler O'Neill will move over to right field where Abreu played on Sunday in Seattle.

  • Wilyer Abreu Likely To Start In Right Field

    Headshot for Wilyer Abreu

    Boston Red Sox rookie outfielder Wilyer Abreu, who impressed in limited action late in 2023, appears likely to serve as the team's starting right fielder to begin the season, although fellow rookie outfielder Ceddanne Rafaela could also factor into the outfield picture in Boston. Chief baseball officer Craig Breslow has also said this offseason that Abreu could see significant playing time in 2024 after the 24-year-old went 24-for-76 (.316) with two home runs, 14 RBI, three stolen bases and 10 runs scored in his first 28 big-league games to close out last season. Abreu is good on defense and hits the ball hard, but he doesn't run all that much and probably isn't going to hit for a very high average in his first full year in the majors. Still, if he's playing regularly in 2024, he'll at least be worthy of rostering in all AL-only fantasy leagues.
