Yankees | Activate David Robertson

Tue, 22 Apr 2014 08:21:05 -0700

New York Yankees RP David Robertson (groin) was activated from the 15-day disabled list. The club sent RP Cesar Cabral down to Class AAA Scranton/Wilkes-Barre.

Fantasy Tip: Slot Robertson into your lineup if you haven't already. It may be worth hanging on to Shawn Kelley for a bit in case Robertson struggles, but most mixed-leaguers can ditch the backup.

Yankees | David Robertson to make rehab outing

Thu, 17 Apr 2014 08:50:21 -0700

New York Yankees RP David Robertson (groin) said he will make a rehab outing with Single-A Tampa Saturday, April 19.

Fantasy Tip: Robertson is eligible to be activated from the DL next Tuesday, and he fully expects to be ready by then. Every indication is that Robertson will be handed the closing duties back immediately by Joe Girardi. Shawn Kelley has done a fine job in his absence, and he'll remain the handcuff to Robertson moving forward.

Yankees | Shawn Kelley, Adam Warren unavailable

Thu, 10 Apr 2014 15:51:33 -0700

New York Yankees RPs Shawn Kelley and Adam Warren are unavailable to pitch Thursday, April 10. Kelley has worked in three of the last four games, and Warren has also pitched three times in the last four nights. Manager Joe Girardi said he's unsure who would pitch in a save situation tonight. He's likely to mix and match with RPs Matt Thornton, Dellin Betances and Cesar Cabral.

Fantasy Tip: Thornton is the most likely option because of his experience, but he may not be available if Girardi has to use him for matchups in a tight spot before the ninth. It's not worth playing the waiver wire on this situation just for tonight.

Yankees | Shawn Kelley unavailable Tuesday

Tue, 08 Apr 2014 08:18:14 -0700

New York Yankees RP Shawn Kelley will not be available Tuesday, April 8, manager Joe Girardi said. Girardi doesn't know who'll close today, but Kelley will be the primary option for saves moving forward with David Robertson (groin) on the disabled list.

Fantasy Tip: Not surprising, since Kelley was the primary eighth-inning guy beforehand. Behind him, it's a dice roll depending on matchups, availability and Girardi's feel. Adam Warren should be your first non-Kelley try, but Dellin Betances along with southpaws Matt Thornton and Vidal Nuno all have a chance to earn credit here.

Yankees | Shawn Kelley notches first save

Mon, 07 Apr 2014 14:35:52 -0700

New York Yankees RP Shawn Kelley pitched a perfect ninth inning for his first career save against the Baltimore Orioles Monday, April 7. RP David Robertson (groin) wasn't available due to a strained groin.

Fantasy Tip: Robertson was put on the DL after the game, so Kelley is expected to serve as the primary closer for the Yanks until Robertson can return. Kelley should be scooped up immediately in all leagues.

Yankees | David Robertson heading to DL

Mon, 07 Apr 2014 13:29:25 -0700

The New York Yankees will place RP David Robertson (groin) on the disabled list with a Grade 1 groin strain.

Fantasy Tip: A Grade 1 strain is the least severe, so it's entirely possible that Robertson will be ready to go when he's eligible to be activated. Shawn Kelley should be your first target if you're searching for save opps on the waiver wire, but Adam Warren, Matt Thornton, Vidal Nuno and even Dellin Betances might factor in if Joe Girardi is playing the matchups in the ninth. For what it's worth, Kelley had the save Monday in the team's home opener.

Yankees | Bullpen jobs up in air

Mon, 17 Feb 2014 10:04:24 -0800

Other than New York Yankees RP David Robertson as the closer, manager Joe Girardi indicated that the rest of the bullpen roles have been undecided. RP Shawn Kelley will probably serve as the setup man for Robertson, and RP Matt Thornton will likely be the situational left-hander. Girardi also mentioned SPs David Phelps and Adam Warren as possibilities for the bullpen.
