Yankees | Brian McCann resting against lefty

Wed, 02 Sep 2015 10:25:54 -0700

New York Yankees C Brian McCann is not in the lineup against Boston Red Sox left-handed SP Henry Owens Wednesday, Sept. 1. C J.R. Murphy is receiving the start and is batting seventh.

Fantasy Tip: Murphy ($2,000, 4.0% of cap) doesn't have a bad line for a backup catcher (.279-1-11), but he lacks power and is a lotto ticket on FantasyScore mainly as a source of salary cap relief.

Yankees | Brian McCann nearing 80 RBI

Sat, 29 Aug 2015 05:23:49 -0700

New York Yankees C Brian McCann went 1-for-2 with three runs, a home run, four RBI and three walks during the Yankees' 15-4 win over the Atlanta Braves Friday, Aug. 28.

Fantasy Tip: McCann ($4,500, 9.0% of cap) is sitting at 79 RBI for the season, and is set to top 80 for the fourth time in his career and first time since 2009. He has also reached 20 home runs this year for the eighth consecutive campaign. FantasyScore owners can turn to McCann in favorable matchups with confidence, and he remains one of the safest backstop bets in fantasy heading into the 2016 season.

Yankees | Brian McCann not starting Tuesday

Tue, 25 Aug 2015 13:12:36 -0700

New York Yankees C Brian McCann is out of the starting lineup Tuesday, Aug. 25, against the Houston Astros. C J.R. Murphy is hitting seventh against Astros SP Dallas Keuchel.

Fantasy Tip: With Alex Rodriguez serving as DH for this game, McCann ($4,500, 9.0% of cap) is taking a seat. Murphy ($2,000, 4.0% of cap) has little fantasy value.

Yankees | Alex Rodriguez sitting again

Sun, 23 Aug 2015 08:26:39 -0700

New York Yankees 3B Alex Rodriguez is not in the starting lineup against Cleveland Indians SP Trevor Bauer Sunday, Aug. 23. C Brian McCann will serve as the designated hitter and is batting fourth, while C J.R. Murphy will start at catcher and is batting ninth in the lineup.

Fantasy Tip: Rodriguez ($5,300, 10.6% of cap) should return to the lineup in the near future. Murphy ($1,700, 3.4% of cap) has only two hits in his last six games and probably could be avoided on FantasyScore.

Yankees | Alex Rodriguez will not start

Sat, 22 Aug 2015 08:24:13 -0700

New York Yankees 3B Alex Rodriguez is not in the starting lineup against Cleveland Indians SP Danny Salazar Saturday, Aug. 22. C Brian McCann will serve as the designated hitter and is batting fourth, while C J.R. Murphy will start at catcher and is batting ninth.

Fantasy Tip: Rodriguez ($5,300, 10.6% of cap) probably is receiving a day off and should play in the next game or two. Murphy ($1,700, 3.4% of cap) is hitting only .222 this month and is not the best option for owners on FantasyScore.

Wed, 19 Aug 2015 07:33:13 -0700

New York Yankees C Brian McCann is out of the lineup Wednesday, Aug. 19, with C J.R. Murphy hitting ninth.

Fantasy Tip: Murphy ($1,700, 3.4% of cap) faces Ervin Santana and isn't a potent enough offensive option to use on FantasyScore.

Yankees | Brian McCann owns Mike Pelfrey

Tue, 18 Aug 2015 14:55:59 -0700

New York Yankees C Brian McCann is hitting .475 with two home runs and eight doubles in his career against Minnesota Twins SP Mike Pelfrey, who he faces Tuesday, Aug. 18.

Fantasy Tip: If those numbers don't convince you to use McCann ($4,500, 9.0% of cap) on FantasyScore tonight, we don't know what will. The catcher also has five home runs and 14 RBI in the month of August.

Yankees | Brian McCann not playing Saturday

Sat, 15 Aug 2015 08:12:45 -0700

New York Yankees C Brian McCann is not in the starting lineup against Toronto Blue Jays SP Marco Estrada Saturday, Aug. 15. C J.R. Murphy will start at catcher and is batting eighth in the lineup.

Fantasy Tip: McCann ($4,500, 9.0% of cap) is coming off a night game, so he is likely receiving a day off. Murphy ($1,700, 3.4% of cap) has a solid .283 batting average in limited playing time this season and could be an option for owners on FantasyScore looking to save some money.

Yankees | Brian McCann playing with brace

Fri, 07 Aug 2015 20:04:56 -0700

New York Yankees C Brian McCann (knee) wore a knee brace in his return to the lineup and went 0-for-4 in a 2-1 loss to the Toronto Blue Jays Friday, Aug. 7.

Fantasy Tip: McCann ($4,900, 9.8% of cap) is having a strong season, but you may want to avoid him at FantasyScore while he deals with a minor knee issue and is forced to play with a brace.

Yankees | Brian McCann returns to the lineup

Fri, 07 Aug 2015 13:23:00 -0700

New York Yankees C Brian McCann (knee) is starting behind the plate and batting fifth against Toronto Blue Jays SP R.A. Dickey Friday, Aug. 5.

Fantasy Tip: McCann ($4,900, 9.8% of cap) missed the past two games with a minor knee injury, but he had three home runs and seven RBI over his previous 18 plate appearances before missing time. McCann has produced as a high-end backstop all season, but Dickey ($5,000, 10.0% of cap) has been stingy of late. It is likely best to spend up elsewhere at FantasyScore Friday.
