Yankees | Stephen Drew hitting fifth Monday

Mon, 04 May 2015 13:19:01 -0700

New York Yankees SS Stephen Drew is hitting fifth in the batting order against Toronto Blue Jays SP R.A. Dickey Monday, May 4.

Fantasy Tip: Drew ($2,100, 4.2% of cap) has continued his poor offensive showing from last year, hitting just .155 (11-for-71) with four home runs and 10 RBI. Most FantasyScore gamers won't be on Drew's scent tonight, but he could come in handy as a nice value play against Dickey, who Drew is 6-for-18 against in his career with one RBI.

Yankees | Stephen Drew sitting out

Sat, 02 May 2015 08:07:41 -0700

New York Yankees 2B Stephen Drew is not in the starting lineup Saturday, May 2.

Fantasy Tip: Drew ($2,100, 4.2% of cap) probably is not playing since the team is facing a left-handed starter. Gregorio Petit will start at second base but is not a great option for fantasy owners.

Yankees | Stephen Drew not going anywhere

Thu, 30 Apr 2015 15:57:26 -0700

New York Yankees 2B Stephen Drew is not a candidate to be replaced at second base by 2B Jose Pirela (concussion), who is recovering from a concussion, according to general manager Brian Cashman. "No," Cashman said. "I think Drew's been fine. Right now, I'm not looking at anyone being an alternative at second base to Drew. I'm surprised you asked the question." Drew is currently hitting only .177 in 62 at-bats. 2B Rob Refsnyder has started slow in the minors, and New York would prefer that both Pirela and Refsnyder develop more if they won't see regular at-bats in the majors. Pirela has just one hit in 14 at-bats in the minors during his rehab, and he is further along as a second baseman than Refsnyder.

Fantasy Tip: Drew ($2,100, 4.2% of cap) has displayed some power at Yankee Stadium's short porch in right field, but other than that, he hasn't done much for his fantasy owners, and he's not a very attractive second base option at FantasyScore unless the matchup is a slam dunk. Only consider stashing Pirela in deeper AL-only leagues for now.

Yankees | Stephen Drew sitting out

Wed, 29 Apr 2015 09:21:06 -0700

New York Yankees 2B Stephen Drew is out of the lineup Wednesday, April 29.

Fantasy Tip: It's just a rest day for him against a lefty. Gregorio Petit ($1,600, 3.2% of your cap) is in there, but he's not a worthwhile start on FantasyScore at this stage.

Yankees | Stephen Drew not starting

Sat, 11 Apr 2015 07:54:56 -0700

New York Yankees 2B Stephen Drew is not in the starting lineup Saturday, April 11.

Fantasy Tip: Gregorio Petit ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) will start at second base with Drew sitting out. Owners on FantasyScore should not consider using Petit and should be able to find better options.

Yankees | Didi Gregorius riding pine Friday

Fri, 10 Apr 2015 13:31:36 -0700

New York Yankees SS Didi Gregorius is not in the starting lineup against Boston Red Sox SP Wade Miley Friday, April 10. SS Stephen Drew is starting at shortstop and hitting eighth in the lineup, while INF Gregorio Petit is starting at second base and hitting ninth.

Fantasy Tip: Both Drew ($2,100, 4.2% of cap) and Petit ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) are both weak options at FantasyScore Friday with plenty of other middle infield candidates to choose from that give you more offensive upside.

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.

Yankees | Stephen Drew to be a backup?

Wed, 01 Apr 2015 18:59:32 -0700

With New York Yankees SS Stephen Drew and SS Didi Gregorius each healthy, manager Joe Girardi said Wednesday, April 1, that Drew will be the backup to Gregorius.

Fantasy Tip: Drew will have some FantasyScore appeal when he draws a start, but it might take an injury to Gregorius for a regular role to open.

Yankees | Stephen Drew struggling this spring

Sun, 22 Mar 2015 19:55:58 -0700

New York Yankees 2B Stephen Drew went 0 for 3 and struck out twice Sunday, March 22, and he is hitting .161 this spring.

Fantasy Tip: Drew is going to open the season as the starter at second base, but he could be replaced sooner rather than later and isn't likely to provide worthwhile fantasy numbers while he is starting.

Yankees | Stephen Drew a starter

Tue, 10 Mar 2015 09:42:08 -0700

New York Yankees SS Stephen Drew will officially be the team's starting second baseman to open the season, according to manager Joe Girardi. Drew hit just .162 in 2014, and the Yankees plan to have a short leash with Drew if he struggles early in the year, according to a source. 2Bs Jose Pirela and Robert Refsnyder aren't fighting for a starting spot, but they are battling to be the first called up if Drew struggles. Girardi doesn't think Drew will have a problem with the transition from shortstop to second base.

Fantasy Tip: Drew has virtually no upside as a fantasy asset, and he should not be considered in standard 12-team leagues, especially if his leash is short at second. If you're speculating in very deep mixed or AL-only leagues, Refsnyder is the better bet to make an impact as a middle infielder on your roster.
