Yankees | Brian McCann, Brett Gardner starting

Sun, 29 May 2016 08:07:30 -0700

New York Yankees C Brian McCann and OF Brett Gardner are back in the starting lineup against Tampa Bay Rays SP Jake Odorizzi Sunday, May 29, while 3B Chase Headley and OF Carlos Beltran (shoulder) are receiving the day off. OF Aaron Hicks will play right field and bat seventh, while INF Ronald Torreyes will play third base and bat ninth.

Fantasy Tip: Hicks is just 7-for-45 (.156) away from Yankee Stadium this season but Torreyes could be worth taking a flier on in daily contests because of his .407 mark (11-for-27) on the road.

Yankees | Brett Gardner, Brian McCann resting

Sat, 28 May 2016 10:11:10 -0700

New York Yankees OF Brett Gardner and C Brian McCann are not in the starting lineup against Tampa Bay Rays SP Matt Moore Saturday, May 28. OF Aaron Hicks will bat second and play left field, while C Austin Romine starts behind the plate and bats ninth.

Fantasy Tip: Gardner and McCann are receiving the day off because the club is facing a left-handed pitcher. Romine is batting .277 with a home run and five RBI in 47 at-bats and makes a productive source of cap relief for DFS players who typically punt the catcher position. On the other hand, Hicks is just 6-for-41 at the plate away from Yankee Stadium and is not a great fantasy option.

Yankees | Brian McCann sitting out

Tue, 24 May 2016 12:36:58 -0700

New York Yankees C Brian McCann is not in the starting lineup Tuesday, May 24. C Austin Romine is starting and is batting ninth against Toronto Blue Jays SP R.A. Dickey.

Fantasy Tip: Romine isn't a very attractive catching option in daily leagues, especially hitting at the very bottom of the batting order. He's hitting .250 and has no home runs and three RBI in 40 at-bats as the Yankees backup catcher.

Yankees | Several Yanks regulars resting Saturday

Sat, 21 May 2016 11:12:29 -0700

New York Yankees C Brian McCann, OF Brett Gardner and SS Did Gregarious are not in the starting lineup against Oakland Athletics SP Sean Manaea Saturday, May 21. OF Aaron Hicks will bat sixth and play left field, 2B/OF Rob Refsnyder will play right field and bat seventh and C Austin Romine will start behind the plate and bat eighth. In addition, 3B Chase Headley is back in the starting lineup to play the hot corner and will bat fifth, while INF Ronald Torreyes bats ninth and plays shortstop.

Fantasy Tip: Of the replacements, Refsnyder is the player with the most offensive upside for DFS purposes. The 25-year-old hit .302 with two home runs and five RBI in 43 at-bats last season and was hitting .293 through 34 games for Class AAA Scranton/Wilkes-Barre this year.

Yankees | Brett Gardner, Brian McCann out

Mon, 16 May 2016 15:31:00 -0700

New York Yankees OF Brett Gardner and C Brian McCann are not in the starting lineup against Arizona Diamondbacks left-handed SP Robbie Ray Monday, May 16. OF Aaron Hicks is starting in left field and is hitting sixth, while C Austin Romine is doing the catching and is batting eighth.

Fantasy Tip: The switch-hitting Hicks is barely over the Mendoza Line this year and is batting just .167 with no home runs and six strikeouts in 30 at-bats against lefties in 2016. Both he and Romine are low-end dart throws in daily fantasy leagues tonight.

Yankees | Brian McCann sitting vs. White Sox

Fri, 13 May 2016 12:44:12 -0700

New York Yankees C Brian McCann is not in the starting lineup Friday, May 13. C Austin Romine is starting behind the plate and batting eighth against Chicago White Sox SP Chris Sale Friday.

Fantasy Tip: Sub out McCann where you can in seasonal lineups. He is off to a solid start to the season with 18 runs, four home runs, 19 RBI and a .276/.366/.439 slash line. Romine is nothing more than a desperation flier in all fantasy formats hitting against Sale Friday.

Tue, 10 May 2016 22:48:03 -0700

New York Yankees C Brian McCann went 3-for-5 with a double, run scored and two RBIs Tuesday, May 10, against the Kansas City Royals.

Fantasy Tip: McCann is having a decent season, hitting .286 with 14 RBIs. He is a must-have No. 2 receiver in most fantasy formats and a decent mid-tier play in DFS.

Yankees | Brian McCann on the bench

Sat, 07 May 2016 08:03:42 -0700

New York Yankees C Brian McCann is not in the starting lineup against Boston Red Sox SP David Price Saturday, May 7. C Austin Romine will start at catcher and is batting ninth in the lineup.

Fantasy Tip: Romine has gone 5-for-19 with one RBI in his limited playing time this season. He could be a low-end starting option in two-catcher leagues but can be avoided in most standard leagues.

Yankees | Brian McCann not starting Sunday

Sun, 01 May 2016 16:04:31 -0700

New York Yankees C Brian McCann will not start the Sunday, May 1, game against the Boston Red Sox. C Austin Romine is starting and hitting ninth against Red Sox SP David Price.

Fantasy Tip: It's a classic case of lefty vs. lefty, so McCann will sit despite a .345 batting average. Romine has just one at-bat against Price, so sit him against the Red Sox. He is untested in terms of fantasy value.

Yankees | Brian McCann receives day off

Mon, 25 Apr 2016 14:15:54 -0700

New York Yankees C Brian McCann is not in the starting lineup against Texas Rangers SP Cesar Ramos Monday, April 25. C Austin Romine will start at catcher and is batting ninth in the lineup.

Fantasy Tip: Romine likely is in the lineup because the Yankees are facing a left-handed pitcher. Romine is hitting .250 with one RBI so far this season, but owners in most leagues should be able to find a better option to use.
