Yankees | Chris Young could start Sunday

Sat, 25 Apr 2015 16:08:33 -0700

New York Yankees OF Chris Young could start in the outfield Sunday, April 26, against the New York Mets. Young may be required to fill in for OF Jacoby Ellsbury (hip) who left Saturday's game after feeling tightness in his hip. Manager Joe Girardi did say he hopes Ellsbury will be able to play Sunday.

Fantasy Tip: Young ($2,200, 4.4% of cap) is tearing it up at the plate to begin the 2015 season. A .235 hitter for his career, Young is currently hitting for a .357 batting average with four home runs in 48 plate appearances. If Young is able to draw another start, he'll be an excellent FantasyScore option.

Thu, 23 Apr 2015 09:32:50 -0700

New York Yankees OF Chris Young is in lineup Thursday, April 23, against the Detroit Tigers.

Fantasy Tip: CY ($3,000, 6.0% of your cap) is off to a fast start with his .368-4-9 line. He's a nice low-end flyer on FantasyScore.

Yankees | Chris Young hitting second

Wed, 22 Apr 2015 13:18:05 -0700

New York Yankees OF Chris Young is batting second against the Detroit Tigers Wednesday, April 22.

Fantasy Tip: Young ($2,200, 4.4% of cap) is off to a fantastic start this season with four home runs and a .344/.432/.844 slash line through his first 32 at-bats. However, opposing pitcher David Price has been lights out through his first three starts. Due to the tough matchup, view Young as a low-priced flier for FantasyScore contests Wednesday. In favorable matchups, he is a nice value play, though.

Yankees | Carlos Beltran not in lineup Tuesday

Tue, 21 Apr 2015 13:39:10 -0700

New York Yankees OF Carlos Beltran is not in the lineup Tuesday, April 21, against the Detroit Tigers. OF Chris Young is batting instead.

Fantasy Tip: With the Tigers starting Kyle Lobstein on the mound, Beltran ($2,800, 5.6% of cap) gets the night off. Young ($2,200, 4.4% of cap) is 7-for-28 with three homers in his past 10 games, so he is a decent low-cost replacement.

Yankees | Brett Gardner still out

Fri, 17 Apr 2015 13:33:13 -0700

New York Yankees OF Brett Gardner (wrist) remains out of the starting lineup Friday, April 17. OF Chris Young is starting in left field in his place yet again and hitting eighth in the batting order against Tampa Bay Rays SP Nathan Karns.

Fantasy Tip: Young ($2,200, 4.4% of cap) has two home runs and a .318 average (7-for-22) to start the season. He's typically an all-or-nothing type of player with plenty of power, but he's a dice roll at FantasyScore, especially hitting at the bottom of the lineup.

Yankees | Brett Gardner remains out Wednesday

Wed, 15 Apr 2015 13:03:36 -0700

New York Yankees OF Brett Gardner (wrist) remains out of the starting lineup Wednesday, April 15. OF Chris Young is starting in left field and hitting eighth in the batting order against Baltimore Orioles SP Bud Norris.

Fantasy Tip: Gardner could return to the lineup later this week if he can swing a bat. Young ($2,200, 4.4% of cap) has appeared in each of the team's last seven games, and he's hitting .333 with two homers in the early going. Young isn't the biggest fantasy name out there, but while he's seeing consistent playing time, he's worth a look as a cheap FantasyScore option against Norris in a hitter's park.

Yankees | Carlos Beltran out Friday

Fri, 10 Apr 2015 13:29:43 -0700

New York Yankees OF Carlos Beltran is not in the starting lineup against Boston Red Sox SP Wade Miley Friday, April 10. In his place, OF Chris Young is starting in right field and hitting seventh in the lineup.

Fantasy Tip: Young ($2,200, 4.4% of cap) is cheap at FantasyScore, but he's a low-end outfield option with a full slate of games Friday evening. Young hit just .149 with two home runs in 74 at-bats against left-handers in 2014.

Yankees | Three NY starters sitting Thursday

Thu, 09 Apr 2015 12:29:29 -0700

New York Yankees OF Brett Gardner, C Brian McCann and 2B Stephen Drew are not in the starting lineup against Toronto Blue Jays SP Daniel Norris Thursday, April 9. OF Chris Young is starting in left field and hitting sixth, C J.R. Murphy is catching and hitting seventh and INF Gregorio Petit is starting at the keystone and hitting eighth.

Fantasy Tip: With the Yanks facing a southpaw, it makes sense that Gardner, McCann and Drew - all lefty swingers - have the day off. Young ($3,000, 6.0% of cap), Murphy ($2,000, 4.0% of cap) and Petit don't move the needle at all at FantasyScore.
