Yankees | Chris Young could start Sunday

Sat, 25 Apr 2015 16:08:33 -0700

New York Yankees OF Chris Young could start in the outfield Sunday, April 26, against the New York Mets. Young may be required to fill in for OF Jacoby Ellsbury (hip) who left Saturday's game after feeling tightness in his hip. Manager Joe Girardi did say he hopes Ellsbury will be able to play Sunday.

Fantasy Tip: Young ($2,200, 4.4% of cap) is tearing it up at the plate to begin the 2015 season. A .235 hitter for his career, Young is currently hitting for a .357 batting average with four home runs in 48 plate appearances. If Young is able to draw another start, he'll be an excellent FantasyScore option.

Yankees | Jacoby Ellsbury left game

Sat, 25 Apr 2015 16:07:20 -0700

New York Yankees OF Jacoby Ellsbury (hip) left the game Saturday, April 25, against the New York Mets, after feeling tightness in his hip. Manager Joe Girardi said he hopes Ellsbury will be able to play Sunday, April 26.

Fantasy Tip: It's the first injury scare of the season for Ellsbury ($5,200, 10.4% of cap). Ellsbury has begun the season hitting .294, with one home run and four stolen bases. If Ellsbury has to miss any time, look for Chris Young ($2,200, 4.4% of cap) to get starts in the outfield.

Yankees | David Price has been owned by Yanks duo

Wed, 22 Apr 2015 15:13:03 -0700

New York Yankees C Brian McCann and OF Jacoby Ellsbury have gone 7-for-14 with three home runs and 16-for-49 with a home run, four doubles and two triples, respectively, against Detroit Tigers SP David Price. Price is pitching against the Yankees Wednesday, April 22.

Fantasy Tip: Over analyzing past batter vs. pitcher statistics can be costly, especially with Price looking dialed in to start the season. Price has allowed a single earned run through 22 1/3 innings thus far. It might not be the best night to overvalue Ellsbury ($5,200, 10.4% of cap) and McCann ($4,200, 8.4% of cap) based on their previous success against Price, especially at their cap hits.

Yankees | Jacoby Ellsbury on hot streak

Mon, 20 Apr 2015 10:23:34 -0700

New York Yankees OF Jacoby Ellsbury has reached base safely in 10 straight games after going 2-for-5 in the win over the Tampa Bay Rays Sunday, April 19.

Fantasy Tip: Ellsbury ($5,200, 10.4% of lineup) is hitting .286 (14-for-49) with no home runs and no RBI to begin the season, and he has two stolen bases. In his limited experience against Detroit Tigers starter Alfredo Simon, Ellsbury is 4-for-9 with a double and a triple, and he should be considered a strong play at FantasyScore, even if Simon has pitched well to begin the season.

New York Yankees OF Jacoby Ellsbury is not in the starting lineup Saturday, April 11.

Yankees | Jacoby Ellsbury returns

Wed, 01 Apr 2015 07:47:30 -0700

New York Yankees OF Jacoby Ellsbury (oblique) returned to the Grapefruit League lineup Wednesday, April 1, after missing two weeks with a strained oblique.

Fantasy Tip: Ellsbury ($5,900, 11.8% of your cap) needs to prove his health before investing this much in him on FantasyScore when the season starts.

Yankees | Jacoby Ellsbury likely to play Wednesday

Tue, 31 Mar 2015 16:16:12 -0700

New York Yankees OF Jacoby Ellsbury (oblique) has been penciled in to play for the big league squad Wednesday, April 1, according to manager Joe Girardi.

Fantasy Tip: Ellsbury ($5,900, 11.8% of cap) should have time to shake off the rust before opening day. He remains an early-round pick in standard leagues, however, waiting to use him in FantasyScore contests would be a prudent decision.

Yankees | Jacoby Ellsbury on track for opener

Tue, 31 Mar 2015 14:38:02 -0700

New York Yankees OF Jacoby Ellsbury (oblique) said he's feeling good and expects to play in a major league spring game soon. Ellsbury said he will be fine for opening day.

Fantasy Tip: Ellsbury ($5,900, 11.8% of cap) hasn't played in a spring game since early March. He dealt with an injury last spring but came out of the gates hot in 2014, giving owners optimism that he could do something similar this year. However, being safe and holding off on Ellsbury in the opening week at FantasyScore makes sense.

Yankees | Jacoby Ellsbury could play Tuesday

Mon, 30 Mar 2015 09:00:00 -0700

New York Yankees OF Jacoby Ellsbury (oblique) could play in a minor league game Tuesday, March 31, after missing two weeks with an oblique strain.

Fantasy Tip: If Ellsbury ($5,900, 11.8% of cap) comes through fine this week while playing in spring games, he should be ready to go on opening day. However, after missing two weeks of spring training at-bats, there's a chance Ellsbury will be slow out of the gates. You may want to wait and see with him in the first week of the regular season at FantasyScore.

Yankees | Jacoby Ellsbury swinging Thursday

Thu, 26 Mar 2015 14:42:28 -0700

New York Yankees OF Jacoby Ellsbury (oblique) will take swings during soft toss Thursday, March 26, and he thinks it'll be a good test to see if he can be ready for opening day. He hasn't played in a game since March 15 due to a right oblique strain that the team is calling "extremely mild." If Ellsbury can play in a game by March 31, he should be ready for opening day, according to manager Joe Girardi. Ellsbury has also been doing sprints, playing catch and swinging a broomstick.

Fantasy Tip: The Yanks are being extremely cautious with Ellsbury because of the nature of his injury. It remains to be seen if he'll be ready for opening day, but unless he suffers a setback, his draft value shouldn't change. You may want to be cautious in using Ellsbury ($5,900, 11.8% of cap) at FantasyScore right out of the gates, though.
