Rafael Devers News
Boston Red Sox third baseman Rafael Devers (wrist) is back at third base and is hitting in the two-hole on Monday against the visiting Houston Astros and right-hander Cristian Javier. Devers was hit by a pitch on his right wrist on Saturday against the Los Angeles Dodgers and sat out of the series finale on Sunday, but X-rays came back negative for any structural damage and he'll be back in the lineup to begin the week for fantasy managers. Get him back into all starting lineups. The 26-year-old Dominican is batting .272 (128-for-471) on the year with 29 home runs, 88 RBI and 74 runs scored. In nine career at-bats against Javier, Devers is batting .222 with a home run and two RBI. In the month of August, Devers has gone 25-for-84 (.298) with four homers, five doubles, 12 RBI and 17 runs scored in 23 starts.
X-rays came back negative on Boston Red Sox third baseman Rafael Devers (wrist) on Sunday, and manager Alex Cora is hopeful that Devers will be able to play on Monday against the visiting Houston Astros. Devers was hit by a pitch on his right wrist on Saturday and was held out of the series finale against the Los Angeles Dodgers on Sunday. It's great news for the Red Sox and Devers' fantasy managers, and he can be considered day-to-day for now. Check back later to see if he's in the team's starting lineup against Houston. When he's on the field, the 26-year-old Dominican is a must-start in fantasy lineups. He's currently hitting .272/.347/.516 with an .863 OPS, 29 home runs, 88 RBI and 74 runs scored in 471 at-bats this year.
Boston Red Sox third baseman Rafael Devers (wrist) will undergo X-rays later on Sunday on his right wrist after he was scratched from the starting lineup against the Los Angeles Dodgers, according to manager Alex Cora. For now, the Red Sox are considering Devers to be day-to-day, but we'll have a better idea of how long he might be out once the results of his X-rays come back. The 26-year-old All-Star was hit by a pitch on Saturday. If X-rays come back negative, he could be right back in the lineup on Monday for the start of a series against the Houston Astros. Luis Urias is getting the start at the hot corner for Boston on Sunday and is hitting ninth in the lineup against Dodgers left-hander Caleb Ferguson. Devers is a must-start in fantasy when healthy, as he's clubbed 29 home runs and driven in 88 while batting .272 (128-for-471) on the year.
Devers eclipsed 100 runs and 100 RBI in both 2019 and 2021 but failed to do so in 2022 as the Red Sox offense performed significantly worse. To his credit, he still drove in 88 and scored 84 times while slashing a strong .295/.358/.521 with 27 homers to add to his career total. The kid is just 26 years old and continues to be one of the game's most polished hitters. Devers was one of the few hitters in the league to post a barrel above 10% (11.5%) with a strikeout rate under 20% (18.9%). The list of hitters that have 30 homers and a .300 batting average in the range of outcomes is not a long list, and Devers is certainly one of those guys. There is very little downside to drafting Devers with a top-25 pick, and he will likely be a second-round pick next year after the slightly underwhelming season with very few steals in his game. The first couple of rounds in a fantasy baseball draft are mostly about just not screwing up, and Devers is one of the safest sources of great fantasy production there is. Draft him with confidence.
