Alex Verdugo Should Be Ready To Go

Boston Red Sox chief baseball officer Chaim Bloom said that outfielder Alex Verdugo (back) should be "all systems go" for spring training 2.0 and the start of the 2020 regular season in late July. Verdugo was the centerpiece of the trade that sent Mookie Betts and David Price to the Dodgers, and he said that he was 100 percent recovered from a stress fracture in his back in early May. The injury caused the lefty hitter to miss most of the second half of last season, and his fantasy stock had dropped in redraft leagues earlier this spring before the season was shut down due to COVID-19. Hitting atop the BoSox lineup from the get-go in this 60-game season, the 24-year-old should begin to rise up draft boards as we head into July.

Alex Verdugo Takes Swings, Does Agility Work

Boston Red Sox outfielder Alex Verdugo (back) took 20 swings in the batting cages on Monday and also did some agility work on the field. Verdugo will open the season on the injured list because of a stress fracture in his back, but there's still a chance he'll return in late April. The 23-year-old has a real chance at a breakout season in an everyday role with Boston, but his injury has tempered expectations from fantasy owners and his draft stock has obviously fallen a bit. Verdugo hit .294/.342/.475 with 12 home runs, 44 RBI and four steals in 343 at-bats for the Dodgers last year, but his season was cut short due to injury. He currently has an ADP of 225.2 and should be owned in all mixed leagues.

Alex Verdugo Ahead of Initial Schedule In Recovery

Boston Red Sox outfielder Alex Verdugo (back) is progressing quicker than trainers would have expected but is still unlikely to be ready for Opening Day against the Blue Jays, according to Red Sox interim manager Ron Roenicke. Verdugo has completed some running drills but has not started hitting or fielding yet, and it is unknown as to when the 23-year-old will be able to join his teammates for on-field workouts or exhibition games during spring training. The Red Sox will take things slowly so that Verdugo avoids re-aggravating the same injury during the season. Once healthy, Verdugo is expected to be the Red Sox every day right fielder and should be owned in standard fantasy formats after posting 12 home runs, 44 RBI, 43 runs scored, a .294 batting average and .817 OPS with the Dodgers in 2019.
