Player Outlook
After being limited to 96 games in 2022, Tyler O'Neill's stated goal last offseason was to tailor his workouts to prevent future injury. It didn't work, as O'Neill played just 72 contests in 2023 due to back, knee and foot problems. When on the field, the 28-year-old's production sagged to just a .715 OPS and nine homers in 266 plate appearances. O'Neill's plate discipline actually trended in a positive direction for the second straight year, but his quality of contact also dropped off again so perhaps he's best off returning to the ultra aggressiveness he displayed during his breakout 2021 campaign. He was traded to Boston this offseason, which not only signals a more secure role but a major upgrade in home park factors. Durability remains a significant concern, but he should produce for fantasy managers while healthy.

  • Red Sox's Tyler O'Neill: Homers again

    O'Neill went 1-for-4 with a solo home run in Tuesday's 7-1 loss to the Orioles. O'Neill was responsible for the Red Sox's lone run in Tuesday's defeat with a 413-foot solo shot off Corbin Burnes in the first inning. O'Neill has now homered in back-to-back games, giving him a league-leading six long balls early in the campaign. The 28-year-old outfielder has gotten off to a tremendous start in Boston, going 11-for-32 with a 1.394 OPS in his first 10 games after struggling to a .231/.312/.403 slash line with just nine home runs in 238 plate appearances last season with the Cardinals.

  • Red Sox's Tyler O'Neill: Moves to three-hole, homers

    O'Neill went 1-for-3 with a walk, a solo home run and two additional runs scored in Sunday's 12-2 win over the Angels. O'Neill and the Red Sox finished off a season-opening, 10-game road trip in style. The team clubbed five home runs Sunday and went 7-3 out west, and O'Neill launched his fifth homer of the trip, during which he batted .357 (10-for-28) and slugged .892. He was moved to third in the order, taking the spot that had belonged to Trevor Story (shoulder), who is unavailable for an undetermined amount of time.

  • Red Sox's Tyler O'Neill: Rips two homers

    O'Neill went 3-for-4 with two solo home runs and three runs scored in Friday's win over the Angels. O'Neill opened the game's scoring with a solo shot in the second inning and added an insurance run by going deep again in the ninth. The 28-year-old slugger is enjoying his first season with Boston; he's already knocked four homers with a 5:3 BB:K through seven games. Despite having only two multi-hit games to date, O'Neill is slashing .409/.536/.955.

  • Red Sox's Tyler O'Neill: Absent from Wednesday's lineup

    O'Neill is not in the lineup for Wednesday's game in Oakland. O'Neill had started five of the first six contests for the Red Sox, but he'll take a seat Wednesday against right-hander Ross Stripling. Wilyer Abreu will replace O'Neill and right field and bat ninth.

  • Red Sox's Tyler O'Neill: Launches second homer

    O'Neill started in left field and went 2-for-3 with a solo home run and an additional run scored in Sunday's 5-1 win over the Mariners. O'Neill is off to a strong start with his new team, going 4-for-10 with three walks and two homers. After dealing with a calf injury that limited him to DH duties for the final two weeks of the Grapefruit League, O'Neill played the field -- twice in right field and once in left -- in his first three starts of the season.

  • Red Sox's Tyler O'Neill: Not starting Saturday

    O'Neill isn't in the Red Sox's lineup for Saturday's contest against Seattle, Christopher Smith of The Springfield Republican reports. O'Neill has registered a hit in each of his first two games in a Red Sox uniform, and he'll catch a breather Saturday. Wilyer Abreu will fill in as Boston's right fielder while batting fifth.

  • Red Sox's Tyler O'Neill: Begins Boston tenure with big game

    O'Neill went 1-for-3 with a solo home run, a walk, a stolen base and two total runs in Thursday's 6-4 Opening Day victory against the Mariners. After six seasons with St. Louis, O'Neill started in right field and batted fifth in his Red Sox debut. The 28-year-old displayed both his power and his speed for his new team, swiping second base following a walk in the second inning and capping the scoring in the contest with an eighth-inning solo shot. The blast put O'Neill into the record book, as he became the first player in history to homer in five consecutive Opening Day games. O'Neill certainly has the skill set to be an impactful fantasy asset, but his health is a question mark -- over his final two seasons with the Cardinals, he played in just 168 of a possible 324 regular-season games.

  • Red Sox's Tyler O'Neill: Plays outfield Monday

    O'Neill started in right field and went 1-for-3 with a walk and a solo home run in Monday's exhibition game against Texas. This marked the first time O'Neill played in the outfield since March 14. He had been dealing with a calf issue that limited him to designated hitter prior to Monday. O'Neill told Peter Abraham of The Boston Globe that he's "fine now" and that the club was "just being careful." It's expected that he'll be an everyday component of the lineup, but there are variables to consider. That uncertainty stems from Ceddanne Rafaela making the team as the primary center fielder, which means manager Alex Cora will have to juggle O'Neill, Wilyer Abreu, Jarren Duran and Masataka Yoshida at the corners and DH.

  • Red Sox's Tyler O'Neill: DH duties for now

    O'Neill started at designated hitter and went 1-for-4 in Saturday's spring game against the Twins. O'Neill, who hasn't played the field since March 14 due to lingering issues with his calf, started at DH in his last three spring games. The Red Sox, however, expect him to be ready for full duty by Opening Day, per Peter Abraham of The Boston Globe. O'Neill is 9-for-30 (.300) with two doubles, one home run, three RBI and seven runs scored over 11 spring games.

  • Red Sox's Tyler O'Neill: Back in lineup Tuesday

    O'Neill (calf) is starting at designated hitter and batting fifth for the Red Sox in Tuesday's contest against the Rays, Ian Browne of MLB.com reports. O'Neill's left calf first tightened up on him nearly two weeks ago and he had to be scratched from the lineup this past Friday when it flared up on him again. However, he's feeling well enough to give it a go Tuesday at DH. The Red Sox will want O'Neill to show he can play the outfield before camp breaks, but it's not clear when he might be ready for that.

  • Red Sox's Tyler O'Neill: Eyeing Tuesday return

    Red Sox manager Alex Cora said he's hopeful for O'Neill (calf) to return to the Grapefruit League lineup Tuesday versus the Rays, Christopher Smith of The Springfield Republican reports. Cora acknowledged that if O'Neill isn't ready to play Tuesday, the outfielder's availability for the March 28 season opener versus the Mariners would start to become more of a question mark, but for now, the Red Sox are expecting him to be ready to go for the start of the campaign. If O'Neill doesn't make enough progress in his recovery from the sore left calf, the Red Sox would likely be able to open up everyday roles in the outfield for both Wilyer Abreu and Ceddanne Rafaela alongside Jarren Duran.

  • Red Sox's Tyler O'Neill: Scratched Friday with tight calf

    O'Neill was scratched from the Red Sox' Grapefruit League lineup Friday due to left calf tightness, Christopher Smith of The Springfield Republican reports. O'Neill just returned from a calf injury earlier this week and has evidently had it flare up on him again. He had been slated to serve as Boston's designated hitter Friday, but that slot will now be filled by Nick Yorke. It's not clear at this point whether this setback could jeopardize O'Neill's availability for Opening Day, but given his injury history, the team is likely to be very cautious with the 28-year-old.

  • Red Sox's Tyler O'Neill: Back Tuesday

    O'Neill (calf) is starting in right field and batting fifth Tuesday against the Cardinals, Tyler Milliken of 985 The Sports Hub reports. His return from calf tightness was delayed one more day than expected, but he'll end up missing less than a week. O'Neill is on track to be a regular in the middle of Boston's lineup this season. Injuries limited him to 168 games for the Cardinals over the last two seasons.

  • Red Sox's Tyler O'Neill: Nursing calf tightness

    O'Neill won't travel with the Red Sox to the Dominican Republic this weekend for their exhibition games against the Rays due to a left calf injury, Pete Abraham of The Boston Globereports. O'Neill hit a double and home run and stole a base in his last Grapefruit League game Tuesday but evidently developed some calf tightness either in that contest or during Wednesday's off day. The good news is the Red Sox believe he'll be ready to play when they return to Florida on Monday, so the club is seemingly acting cautiously by holding him out of games in the Dominican Republic.

  • Red Sox's Tyler O'Neill: Swats first spring homer

    O'Neill started in left field and went 2-for-2 with a double, a walk, a home run, three RBI and two additional runs scored in Tuesday's spring game against the Rays. O'Neill is 4-for-14 with two extra-base hits and two steals over six Grapefruit League games. It looks like the Red Sox want him to be the primary left fielder. He's started in left field in all six games while Masataka Yoshida has served the designated hitter in five of those outings.

  • Red Sox's Tyler O'Neill: Expected to be primary left fielder

    O'Neill is expected to see most of his playing time for the Red Sox this season in left field, Jen McCaffrey of The Athletic reports. Boston isn't giving up hope of Masataka Yoshida improving his outfield defense, but at the moment it sounds like most of his starts will be out of the designated hitter spot. The trickle-down effect means there's an opening in right field, where Wilyer Abreu looks like the favorite to start. Worth keeping in mind, however, is that the Red Sox have been connected to some free-agent outfielders, which would shake things up.

  • Red Sox's Tyler O'Neill: Avoids arbitration with new team

    The Red Sox and O'Neill avoided arbitration by agreeing to a one-year, $5.85 million contract Thursday, Robert Murray of FanSided.com reports. O'Neill surely didn't want to go to an arbitration hearing with his new team and now won't have to. The outfielder has been plagued by injuries the last two seasons but is hoping a change of scenery in his walk year leads to a rebound.

  • Red Sox's Tyler O'Neill: Shipped to Boston

    The Cardinals traded O'Neill (foot) to the Red Sox on Friday in exchange for Nick Robertson and Victor Santos (undisclosed), Alex Speier of The Boston Globe reports. After trading Alex Verdugo to the Yankees on Tuesday, the Red Sox will now bring in O'Neill to fill their opening in the outfield. O'Neill slashed .231/.312/.403 with nine homers and 21 RBI across 266 plate appearances last season while battling a multitude of injuries. No updates have been provided regarding the foot injury that put an early end to O'Neill's season, but he'll be in the mix to secure a starting spot in Boston's outfield when he's healthy.

  • Cardinals' Tyler O'Neill: Out with foot sprain

    O'Neill was placed on the 10-day injured list Sunday with a sprained right foot, Katie Woo of The Athletic reports. It's unclear when exactly O'Neill suffered the injury, but he was mired in a 1-for-18 slump over his previous five games. The 27-year-old will be eligible to be reinstated during the final week of the regular season, but the Cardinals could opt to hold him out with nothing of consequence to play for. Juan Yepez was recalled in a corresponding move, though it'll be Richie Palacios taking O'Neill's place in left field Sunday.

  • Cardinals' Tyler O'Neill: Out of Friday's lineup

    O'Neill is absent from the lineup for Friday's game against the Phillies, Katie Woo of The Athletic reports. The Cardinals have been giving O'Neill regular off days down the stretch while he deals with a persistent knee issue. Richie Palacios will be in left field for this one.
