Yankees | Brian McCann out against Minny

Fri, 24 Jun 2016 13:33:44 -0700

New York Yankees C Brian McCann is not in the starting lineup Friday, June 24. C Austin Romine is starting behind the plate and batting ninth against SP Tommy Milone Friday.

Fantasy Tip: McCann remains a middling starting option behind the plate in the majority of seasonal leagues with a mediocre 29 runs, 10 home runs, 29 RBI and .220/.323/.414 slash line. Romine's lack of playing time limits him to being a low-end option in cavernous mixed, two-catcher and AL-only leagues, as his .272/.286/.432 slash line through 85 plate appearances isn't too bad for a backup backstop.

Yankees | Two bombs for Brian McCann

Sun, 19 Jun 2016 16:32:18 -0700

New York Yankees C Brian McCann went 3-for-4 with two solo home runs in a 7-4 loss to the Minnesota Twins Sunday, June 19.

Fantasy Tip: McCann is on pace for more than 20 homers, but he is hitting just .219. He has enough power for his position to start in mixed leagues, but he is an all-or-nothing DFS play.

Yankees | Brett Gardner, Brian McCann out Friday

Fri, 17 Jun 2016 14:12:36 -0700

New York Yankees OF Brett Gardner and C Brian McCann are not in the starting lineup against Minnesota Twins left-handed SP Pat Dean Friday, June 17. OF Aaron Hicks is starting in left field and hitting ninth, while C Austin Romine is doing the catching and batting eighth. Also, 2B Rob Refsnyder is at first base and is hitting second.

Fantasy Tip: All three are low-end daily options that don't have much appeal, but Refsnyder is the most attractive as a deep sleeper because of his position high in the batting order.

Yankees | Brian McCann takes a seat

Wed, 15 Jun 2016 10:07:55 -0700

New York Yankees C Brian McCann is not in the starting lineup Wednesday, June 15. C Austin Romine is doing the catching and is batting eighth against Colorado Rockies SP Chad Bettis.

Fantasy Tip: It's likely just a normal day of rest for a day game following a night game for McCann. Romine is batting .288 with two homers and 11 RBI in 73 at-bats, but he remains a low-end desperation pick with a little more upside today at Coors Field.

Yankees | Brian McCann, Alex Rodriguez out

Sun, 12 Jun 2016 08:33:29 -0700

New York Yankees C Brian McCann and DH Alex Rodriguez are not in the starting lineup against Detroit Tigers SP Michael Fulmer Sunday, June 12. OF Carlos Beltran is batting third and serving as the designated hitter, C Austin Romine will start behind the plate and bat seventh and OF Aaron Hicks will play right field and hit eighth.

Fantasy Tip: Romine has not been known for his offense historically but he has two homers and 11 RBI in 69 at-bats this year, to go with a .290 average, so he could be viewed as a productive source of cap relief in DFS. Hicks is batting just .203 over 118 at-bats and is not a great fantasy option today.

Yankees | Brian McCann not starting Tuesday

Tue, 07 Jun 2016 13:20:32 -0700

New York Yankees C Brian McCann is out of the lineup Tuesday, June 7, against the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim. C Austin Romine will bat seventh against Angels SP David Huff.

Fantasy Tip: Although McCann is just back from injury, he sits after two games because the Yankees face a left-handed pitcher. Romine is worth consideration in DFS formats with hits in six of his last eight games.

Yankees | Brian McCann will play Sunday

Sun, 05 Jun 2016 09:20:41 -0700

New York Yankees C Brian McCann (elbow) is in the starting lineup against Baltimore Orioles SP Kevin Gausman Sunday, June 5, and is batting fifth in the lineup.

Fantasy Tip: McCann was on the bench for the last few games because of an elbow injury. He has only two hits in his last nine games, so owners may want to avoid him until he is more productive at the plate.

Yankees | Austin Romine injured

Sun, 05 Jun 2016 00:02:55 -0700

New York Yankees C Austin Romine (thumb) tore the nail off his catching thumb Saturday, June 4, and had to leave the game against the Baltimore Orioles. C Brian McCann took his place.

Fantasy Tip: Romine is clearly a backup to McCann, but McCann's injury history makes Romine a desirable play as a "handcuff" player. Romine could miss a small amount of time, and it shouldn't be long if he does. Keep an eye out for later news on Romine's condition.

Yankees | Elbow issue for Brian McCann

Fri, 03 Jun 2016 18:38:14 -0700

New York Yankees C Brian McCann (elbow) has been dealing with a hyperextended left elbow, but manager Joe Girardi said he doesn't think McCann will miss too much time.

Fantasy Tip: It now makes sense why McCann has been out of the lineup the last couple of games. He will provide plenty of power and is worth starting in all formats, but his average won't do your team any favors.

Yankees | Brian McCann out again

Fri, 03 Jun 2016 13:23:43 -0700

New York Yankees C Brian McCann is out of the lineup for the second straight day Friday, June 3. C Austin Romine is catching and is hitting ninth against Baltimore Orioles SP Chris Tillman.

Fantasy Tip: It's curious as to why McCann is sitting tonight after resting against lefty Thursday. Check back in case he's dealing with some sort of ailment. Romine is hitting a respectable .293 with a homer and seven RBI, but it's a small sample size of only 58 at-bats. He's a weak daily target, especially while hitting ninth.
