Yankees | Mark Teixeira out vs. Texas

Wed, 29 Jul 2015 15:11:54 -0700

New York Yankees 1B Mark Teixeira is not in the starting lineup Wednesday, July 29. 1B Garrett Jones is starting at first base and hitting seventh against Texas Rangers SP Colby Lewis.

Fantasy Tip: Jones ($2,100, 4.2% of cap) does have four of his five home runs this year against right-handed pitchers, but he's not typically a very strong option for daily gamers unless he's at home hitting in the Bronx with the short porch in right field. Texas is a hitter-friendly environment, too, but Jones should still be seen as a sleeper pick on FantasyScore.

Sun, 26 Jul 2015 11:05:48 -0700

New York Yankees 1B Garrett Jones will start at first base against Minnesota Twins SP Kyle Gibson Sunday, July 26, and is batting sixth in the lineup.

Fantasy Tip: Jones ($2,100, 4.2% of cap) is hitting only .224 in limited playing time this season, and owners on FantasyScore should be able to find better options to use for their lineups.

Yankees | Garrett Jones out of the lineup

Sun, 12 Jul 2015 08:43:32 -0700

New York Yankees 1B Garrett Jones is not in the starting lineup against Boston Red Sox SP Wade Miley Sunday, July 12. OF Chris Young will start in right field and is batting fifth in the lineup.

Fantasy Tip: Jones ($2,100, 4.2% of cap) likely is sitting out with the team facing a left-handed pitcher. Young ($3,000, 6.0% of cap) is hitting .192 this month and has not recorded an RBI in his last 12 games. Owners on FantasyScore may want to look for better options to use in their lineups.

Yankees | Garrett Jones starting against Boston

Fri, 10 Jul 2015 14:02:29 -0700

New York Yankees 1B Garrett Jones is starting in right field and hitting sixth against Boston Red Sox SP Clay Buchholz Friday, July 10. OF Chris Young is sitting on the bench to start.

Fantasy Tip: Jones ($2,100, 4.2% of cap) has four of his five home runs this season against right-handed pitchers, but he's also hitting just .210 (13-for-62) away from the short porch in the Bronx. Also, Buchholz has been pitching very well of late. Jones is strictly a sleeper pick on FantasyScore.

Yankees | A-Rod has day off Thursday

Thu, 09 Jul 2015 08:40:26 -0700

New York Yankees 3B Alex Rodriguez is out of the lineup Thursday, July 9, with OF Garrett Jones drawing the start hitting fifth.

Fantasy Tip: Jones ($2,100, 4.2% of cap) has a .294-1-2 line this month, but there really isn't much there to warrant the start on FantasyScore.

Yankees | Carlos Beltran sitting vs. Angels

Wed, 01 Jul 2015 14:43:02 -0700

New York Yankees OF Carlos Beltran (ribs) is not in the starting lineup Wednesday, July 1. 1B Garrett Jones is playing right field and batting sixth against Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim SP Matt Shoemaker Wednesday.

Fantasy Tip: Shoemaker has been teed off on this season and sports a 1.72 HR/9 and 14.7 percent HR/FB rate. Jones ($2,100, 4.2% of cap) checks out as a low-priced flier for FantasyScore players, but just note, you're passing up a lot of upside utilizing him at first base.

Yankees | Carlos Beltran out of the lineup

Sun, 28 Jun 2015 08:52:27 -0700

New York Yankees OF Carlos Beltran is not in the starting lineup against Houston Astros SP Collin McHugh Sunday, June 28. 1B Garrett Jones will start in left field and is batting sixth in the lineup.

Fantasy Tip: Beltran ($3,300, 6.6% of cap) likely is receiving a day off Sunday. Jones ($2,100, 4.2% of cap) has posted solid numbers this month with a .250 batting average, three home runs and nine RBI. Owners on FantasyScore could consider Jones as a cheaper option if they are looking to save some money.

Yankees | Alex Rodriguez out vs. 'Stros

Fri, 26 Jun 2015 15:55:50 -0700

New York Yankees 3B Alex Rodriguez is not in the starting lineup Friday, June 26. OF Carlos Beltran is serving as the designated hitter against Houston Astros SP Vincent Velasquez, which allows 1B Garrett Jones to start in right field. Jones is hitting sixth in the lineup.

Fantasy Tip: Jones ($2,100, 4.2% of cap) isn't a terrible daily play tonight against Velasquez. After all, Jones has three of his four home runs against right-handed pitchers, and he' much more attractive at FantasyScore as a sleeper pick when playing games in the Bronx with a short porch in right field.

Yankees | Garrett Jones does yardwork

Tue, 23 Jun 2015 22:41:59 -0700

New York Yankees OF Garrett Jones went 1-for-5 with a solo home run Tuesday, June 23, against the Philadelphia Phillies while filling in for 1B Mark Teixeira (neck).

Fantasy Tip: Jones ($2,100; or 4.2% of cap) is likely headed back to the bench with Big Tex expected back Wednesday. However, if Jones starts again he is worth using at a low FantasyScore price.

Yankees | Mark Teixeira still sidelined

Tue, 23 Jun 2015 12:53:27 -0700

New York Yankees 1B Mark Teixeira (neck) remains out of the starting lineup Tuesday, June 23. 1B Garrett Jones is starting at first base and hitting sixth against Philadelphia Phillies SP Sean O'Sullivan.

Fantasy Tip: Jones ($2,100, 4.2% of cap), despite hitting only .247 (19-for-77) against righties this year with two home runs and eight RBI, could be a decent sleeper pick at Yankee Stadium tonight against O'Sullivan. Teixeira's injury isn't believed to be serious, but keep an eye on his progress and be hesitant to use him in your daily lineup until he returns and proves his health.
