Yankees | Four Yankees regulars sitting Friday

Fri, 22 Jul 2016 13:34:21 -0700

New York Yankees OF Jacoby Ellsbury, 1B Mark Teixeira, C Brian McCann and SS Didi Gregorius are out of the starting lineup against San Francisco Giants left-handed SP Madison Bumgarner Friday, July 22. OF Aaron Hicks is in center field and hitting eighth, 2B Rob Refsnyder is at second and batting sixth, C Austin Romine is behind the dish and hitting seventh and 2B Ronald Torreyes is at the 6 and batting ninth. Also, 2B Starlin Castro moves up to the two-hole.

Fantasy Tip: All four players sitting are left-handed, which makes since with MadBum being one of the tougher southpaws in the league. None of Hicks, Refsnyder, Romine or Torreyes should be anything more than desperation daily stabs in the tough matchup. Castro, however, might be a contrarian play with the move up the batting order given the fact he's also been swinging a hot stick.

Yankees | Brian McCann sitting Sunday

Sun, 17 Jul 2016 13:48:17 -0700

New York Yankees C Brian McCann will not start Sunday, July 17, against Boston Red Sox SP David Price. C Austin Romine is batting ninth in McCann's place.

Fantasy Tip: McCann earns the night off with lefty Price on the hill. Romine (.265-3-16) is a decent low-cost alternative in DFS leagues, as Romine has had a decent year in his own right.

Yankees | Mark Teixeira returns to action Sunday

Sun, 10 Jul 2016 08:09:33 -0700

New York Yankees 1B Mark Teixeira (knee) is back in the starting lineup against Cleveland Indians SP Carlos Carrasco Sunday, July 10. In addition, INF/OF Rob Refsnyder will play right field and bat eighth, while C Austin Romine starts behind the plate and bats ninth. C Brian McCann is receiving the day off.

Fantasy Tip: Texeira is batting just .185 during the month of July and is 1-for-11 in his career against Carrasco, so he is not a recommended fantasy option. Refsnyder and Romine should both be viewed as productive sources of salary cap relief in DFS.

Yankees | Three Yankees regulars sitting

Tue, 05 Jul 2016 14:29:51 -0700

New York Yankees OF Jacoby Ellsbury, SS Didi Gregorius and C Brian McCann are not in the starting lineup against Chicago White Sox left-handed SP Carlos Rodon Tuesday, July 5. OF Aaron Hicks is in center field and hitting eighth, 2B Rob Refsnyder draws in at second base and is batting seventh and C Austin Romine is catching and hitting ninth.

Fantasy Tip: The Yanks are resting some of their lefty hitters with a southpaw on the bump. All three replacements won't be all that attractive in DFS this evening. Hicks might be the most appealing as a deep sleeper, but he's batting .203 on the season with three homers and 16 RBI.

Yankees | Three Yankees out Saturday

Sat, 02 Jul 2016 16:40:10 -0700

New York Yankees C Brian McCann, OF Carlos Beltran (hamstring) and 3B Alex Rodriguez are out of the lineup Saturday, July 2. OF Rob Refsnyder is hitting seventh, and C Austin Romine is hitting eighth.

Fantasy Tip: A-Rod has been out while the Yanks are in San Diego sans the DH. Refsnyder is hitting .290 and worth basement consideration against Drew Pomeranz. Romine isn't worth using in DFS.

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.
