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.

Yankees | Brian McCann, Didi Gregorius resting

Thu, 21 Apr 2016 12:27:56 -0700

New York Yankees C Brian McCann and SS Didi Gregorius are not in the starting lineup against Oakland Athletics left-handed SP Rich Hill Thursday, April 21. C Austin Romine is doing the catching and hitting eighth, while 3B Ronald Torreyes is at the keystone and batting ninth.

Fantasy Tip: Torreyes has produced with the bat in limited opportunities this year (6-for-12 with a double and triple), but he'll remain a low-end middle infield commodity in daily formats Thursday. Romine is nothing more than a desperation source of salary cap relief.

Yankees | Three Yanks regulars sitting

Wed, 13 Apr 2016 14:26:00 -0700

New York Yankees OF Brett Gardner, SS Didi Gregorius and C Brian McCann (toe) are not in the starting lineup Wednesday, April 13. OF Aaron Hicks is in left field and hitting second, 3B Ronald Torreyes is at shortstop and hitting eighth, while C Austin Romine is the catcher and is batting ninth against Toronto Blue Jays SP J.A. Happ.

Fantasy Tip: McCann injured his toe last night but the injury isn't serious. Expect to see him back in the lineup for the Yankees' next game. Torreyes and Barnes can probably be avoided in all fantasy formats, but Hicks has some promise in a terrific lineup spot as a daily sleeper against a hittable lefty in Happ.

Wed, 30 Mar 2016 23:13:32 -0700

New York Yankees C Austin Romine had a hit and RBI in a Grapefruit League spring game Wednesday, March 30. It appears he is locked into the backup catcher job.

Fantasy Tip: Romine is only worth a look for depth at the catcher position in deeper AL-only leagues which use two starting receivers.

Yankees | Yanks have battle for backup catcher job

Sun, 28 Feb 2016 08:03:12 -0800

New York Yankees Cs Austin Romine, Gary Sanchez and Carlos Corporan will battle for the backup catcher position during spring training, according to manager Joe Girardi. "I don't care to come into camp and say, 'This person has no chance.' That's not fair to the player, and then I think you're narrow-minded," Girardi said. "You have to keep your eyes open."

Fantasy Tip: Whoever emerges as the winner of this competition won't see much playing time behind Brian McCann, who started 119 games last season. Sanchez and Romine may have a slight edge over Corporan because they are both on the 40-man roster and have had more experience working with the team's pitchers.

Yankees | Greg Bird, Didi Gregorius sitting

Sat, 03 Oct 2015 08:22:24 -0700

C Austin Romine will start at first base against SP Wei-Yin Chen and is batting eighth in the lineup, while SS Brendan Ryan will start at shortstop and is batting ninth.

Fantasy Tip: Bird ($5,300, 10.6% of cap) and Gregorius ($4,000, 8.0% of cap) likely are sitting out because the team if facing a left-handed pitcher. Ryan ($2,100, 4.2% of cap) and Romine ($1,700, 3.4% of cap) have not done much at the plate this season and are not great option for fantasy owners.
