Yankees | Brian McCann not starting Tuesday

Tue, 28 Jun 2016 13:21:25 -0700

New York Yankees C Brian McCann is not in the lineup Tuesday, June 28, against the Texas Rangers. McCann is replaced by C Austin Romine, who will bat ninth against Rangers SP Cole Hamels.

Fantasy Tip: McCann, a lefty, is sitting on the bench because Hamels is a lefty as well. Sit McCann on your bench if you can. As for Romine, he is worth a start in daily leagues because of his five hits, two doubles, and seven runs batted in over the last seven games.

Yankees | Brian McCann out against Minny

Fri, 24 Jun 2016 13:33:44 -0700

New York Yankees C Brian McCann is not in the starting lineup Friday, June 24. C Austin Romine is starting behind the plate and batting ninth against SP Tommy Milone Friday.

Fantasy Tip: McCann remains a middling starting option behind the plate in the majority of seasonal leagues with a mediocre 29 runs, 10 home runs, 29 RBI and .220/.323/.414 slash line. Romine's lack of playing time limits him to being a low-end option in cavernous mixed, two-catcher and AL-only leagues, as his .272/.286/.432 slash line through 85 plate appearances isn't too bad for a backup backstop.

Yankees | Brett Gardner, Brian McCann out Friday

Fri, 17 Jun 2016 14:12:36 -0700

New York Yankees OF Brett Gardner and C Brian McCann are not in the starting lineup against Minnesota Twins left-handed SP Pat Dean Friday, June 17. OF Aaron Hicks is starting in left field and hitting ninth, while C Austin Romine is doing the catching and batting eighth. Also, 2B Rob Refsnyder is at first base and is hitting second.

Fantasy Tip: All three are low-end daily options that don't have much appeal, but Refsnyder is the most attractive as a deep sleeper because of his position high in the batting order.

Yankees | Brian McCann takes a seat

Wed, 15 Jun 2016 10:07:55 -0700

New York Yankees C Brian McCann is not in the starting lineup Wednesday, June 15. C Austin Romine is doing the catching and is batting eighth against Colorado Rockies SP Chad Bettis.

Fantasy Tip: It's likely just a normal day of rest for a day game following a night game for McCann. Romine is batting .288 with two homers and 11 RBI in 73 at-bats, but he remains a low-end desperation pick with a little more upside today at Coors Field.

Yankees | Brian McCann, Alex Rodriguez out

Sun, 12 Jun 2016 08:33:29 -0700

New York Yankees C Brian McCann and DH Alex Rodriguez are not in the starting lineup against Detroit Tigers SP Michael Fulmer Sunday, June 12. OF Carlos Beltran is batting third and serving as the designated hitter, C Austin Romine will start behind the plate and bat seventh and OF Aaron Hicks will play right field and hit eighth.

Fantasy Tip: Romine has not been known for his offense historically but he has two homers and 11 RBI in 69 at-bats this year, to go with a .290 average, so he could be viewed as a productive source of cap relief in DFS. Hicks is batting just .203 over 118 at-bats and is not a great fantasy option today.

Yankees | Brian McCann not starting Tuesday

Tue, 07 Jun 2016 13:20:32 -0700

New York Yankees C Brian McCann is out of the lineup Tuesday, June 7, against the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim. C Austin Romine will bat seventh against Angels SP David Huff.

Fantasy Tip: Although McCann is just back from injury, he sits after two games because the Yankees face a left-handed pitcher. Romine is worth consideration in DFS formats with hits in six of his last eight games.

Yankees | Austin Romine injured

Sun, 05 Jun 2016 00:02:55 -0700

New York Yankees C Austin Romine (thumb) tore the nail off his catching thumb Saturday, June 4, and had to leave the game against the Baltimore Orioles. C Brian McCann took his place.

Fantasy Tip: Romine is clearly a backup to McCann, but McCann's injury history makes Romine a desirable play as a "handcuff" player. Romine could miss a small amount of time, and it shouldn't be long if he does. Keep an eye out for later news on Romine's condition.

Yankees | Brian McCann out again

Fri, 03 Jun 2016 13:23:43 -0700

New York Yankees C Brian McCann is out of the lineup for the second straight day Friday, June 3. C Austin Romine is catching and is hitting ninth against Baltimore Orioles SP Chris Tillman.

Fantasy Tip: It's curious as to why McCann is sitting tonight after resting against lefty Thursday. Check back in case he's dealing with some sort of ailment. Romine is hitting a respectable .293 with a homer and seven RBI, but it's a small sample size of only 58 at-bats. He's a weak daily target, especially while hitting ninth.

Yankees | Three regulars sitting for Yanks

Thu, 02 Jun 2016 14:21:59 -0700

New York Yankees OF Brett Gardner (rest), C Brian McCann (rest) and SS Didi Gregorius (rest) are not in the lineup Thursday, June 2, against Detroit Tigers SP Matt Boyd. OF Aaron Hicks is getting a start in center field and batting ninth, C Austin Romine is behind the plate and hitting seventh, while 2B Rob Refsnyder is entering the lineup in the No. 8 hole with 2B Starlin Castro taking over shortstop.

Fantasy Tip: It's not much of a surprise to see the Yankees sitting some of their regulars, as this was supposed to be a day off for the club. Instead, they're making up a game that was rained out in April. Either way, none of the replacements inserted into the lineup for tonight's contest deserve any consideration for daily fantasy games. The three starters sitting should be back Friday.

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.
