Yankees | Chase Headley, Chris Young flip in order

Wed, 01 Jul 2015 14:37:01 -0700

New York Yankees 3B Chase Headley is batting second and OF Chris Young is batting seventh against Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim SP Matt Shoemaker Wednesday, July 1.

Fantasy Tip: Shoemaker has a 1.72 HR/9 and 14.7 percent HR/FB rate, so the Yankees have a homer-friendly matchup Wednesday. Neither Headley ($3,600, 7.2% of cap) or Young ($3,000, 6.0% of cap) are lineup locks for FantasyScore players, but they're worth a look if the price fits, especially Headley in the two-hole.

Yankees | Chris Young hit streak snapped

Sun, 28 Jun 2015 15:53:40 -0700

New York Yankees OF Chris Young had his hit streak snapped at 10 games on Sunday, June 28.

Fantasy Tip: Young ($2,500, 5.0% of cap) has a .272-10-25 line following Sunday's game, one home run off his 2014 total. He's finding regular playing time so that helps his FantasyScore value.

Yankees | Chris Young in midst of hit streak

Fri, 26 Jun 2015 11:49:08 -0700

New York Yankees OF Chris Young is hitting .433 (13-for-30) during an eight-game hitting streak, and his average against left-handers (25-for-66, .379) is the highest in the American League in a minimum of 60 at-bats.

Fantasy Tip: If you play at FantasyScore, you should know by now that Young ($2,500, 5.0% of cap) is a lefty killer. That means you should look to avoid him tonight against a right-hander, as he's hitting a meager .177 (17-for-96) with four home runs and 10 RBI against them.

Yankees | Brett Gardner sitting vs. Astros

Thu, 25 Jun 2015 13:59:01 -0700

New York Yankees OF Brett Gardner is not in the starting lineup Thursday, June 25. OF Chris Young is starting in center field and batting first against Houston Astros SP Dallas Keuchel Thursday.

Fantasy Tip: Make sure to avoid Gardner ($4,800, 9.6% of cap) in all fantasy formats Thursday. He is currently scorching hot over a seven-game stretch with 12 runs, four home runs, 10 RBI and a .500/.543/1.000 slash line, and he should be viewed as a potential value play by FantasyScore players. Young ($2,500, 5.0% of cap) has a .371/.435/.694 slash line against southpaws, so he is an upside play in daily contests Thursday.

Yankees | Chris Young leading off

Thu, 25 Jun 2015 13:51:56 -0700

New York Yankees OF Chris Young is playing center field and batting leadoff against Houston Astros SP Dallas Keuchel Thursday, June 25.

Fantasy Tip: Young ($2,500, 5.0% of cap) has a .371/.435/.694 slash line with 12 runs, eight doubles, four home runs and 10 RBI through 70 plate appearances against southpaws this season. He projects as an excellent matchup play for FantasyScore players, especially at his low price tag. Just note, Keuchel has an admirable pitching arsenal, so Young isn't a risk-free start.

Yankees | Chris Young starting Saturday

Sat, 20 Jun 2015 14:14:32 -0700

New York Yankees OF Chris Young will make the start in left field and hit ninth in the order Saturday, June 20, against the Detroit Tigers and RHP Alfredo Simon. OF Mason Williams (shoulder) is out of the starting lineup.

Fantasy Tip: Young ($2,500, 5.0% of cap) has just one home run since May 2, as his regression continues following his strong start. Young can be used as a GPP option on FantasyScore when he's hitting higher in the order against a lefty, but he can be faded while hitting ninth against a right-hander.

Yankees | Mason Williams injures shoulder

Fri, 19 Jun 2015 18:36:11 -0700

New York Yankees OF Mason Williams (shoulder) appeared to jam his right shoulder while sliding back to first base in the bottom of the fifth inning Friday, June 19, against the Detroit Tigers. He remained in the game and came around to score but was replaced defensively by OF Chris Young in the top of the sixth.

Fantasy Tip: Williams ($1,800, 3.6% of cap) has gone 6-for-21 with a home run and three RBIs since being called up last week. If he misses a significant amount of time, expect Young ($2,500, 5.0% of cap) to see regular playing time in center field for a team that already has OFs Jacoby Ellsbury (knee) and Slade Heathcott (quadriceps) on the disabled list.

Yankees | Mason Williams will not start

Tue, 16 Jun 2015 14:28:16 -0700

New York Yankees OF Mason Williams is not in the starting lineup against Miami Marlins SP David Phelps Tuesday, June 16. OF Brett Gardner will start in center field and is batting first, while OF Chris Young will start in left field and is batting seventh in the lineup.

Fantasy Tip: Williams ($1,800, 3.6% of cap) is probably receiving a day off after playing in the last several games. Gardner ($4,800, 9.6% of cap) has picked up at least one hit in seven of his last nine games and could be a solid option on FantasyScore. Young ($2,500, 5.0% of cap) is hitting. 222 in June and is not a great option on FantasyScore.

Royals | Chris Young flirts with no-hitter

Tue, 09 Jun 2015 20:13:34 -0700

Kansas City Royals SP Chris Young took a no-hitter into the seventh inning Tuesday, June 9, against the Minnesota Twins. He allowed just one hit and three walks over 6 1/3 scoreless innings to pick up his fifth win.

Fantasy Tip: Young has lasted six or more innings in four of his past six outings, and he has allowed one or no runs in four of the six appearances. At $5,700 (or 11.4% of cap) Young is a decent mid-level FantasyScore option when the matchup is favorable.
