Yankees | Alex Rodriguez leaves game

Tue, 03 May 2016 18:57:46 -0700

New York Yankees 3B Alex Rodriguez (hamstring) was replaced by 2B Dustin Ackley in the team's game Tuesday, May 3. He appeared to tweak his hamstring running to first base in the fifth inning.

Fantasy Tip: The severity of the injury is unknown but the Yankees would be in real trouble if A-Rod has to miss any time. More information should be available after the game but in the meantime, Ackley will benefit the most for as long as Rodriguez is out. He's not worth picking up in most leagues, however, considering he's just 1-for-16 on the year thus far.

Yankees | Alex Rodriguez will not play

Mon, 25 Apr 2016 13:59:28 -0700

New York Yankees 3B Alex Rodriguez (oblique) is not in the starting lineup against Texas Rangers SP Cesar Ramos Monday, April 25. OF Carlos Beltran will serve as the designated hitter, while 2B Dustin Ackley will start in right field and is batting seventh in the lineup.

Fantasy Tip: Owners will need to keep an eye on the situation to see how long Rodriguez will be out of the lineup. Ackley has gone 1-for-9 in his limited playing time this season, so owners should be able to find better options in their lineups.

Yankees | No Alex Rodriguez vs. Seattle

Fri, 15 Apr 2016 12:44:33 -0700

New York Yankees DH Alex Rodriguez is not in the starting lineup Friday, April 15. OF Dustin Ackley is batting sixth as the designated hitter against Seattle Mariners SP Nathan Karns Friday.

Fantasy Tip: Rodriguez has just three hits in his first 22 at-bats (.136), and he went 0-for-4 with two strikeouts Wednesday, April 13. The veteran is going to receive the odd breather this season, and he should kick his early-season slump sooner than later. Ackley is nothing more than a low-end own in cavernous mixed and AL-only leagues. In daily contests, he is a potential low-priced flier Friday, though.

Yankees | A-Rod, Beltran out Friday

Fri, 08 Apr 2016 07:47:44 -0700

New York Yankees 3B Alex Rodriguez and OF Carlos Beltran are out of the lineup Friday, April 8. 2B Starlin Castro is hitting third, and OF Dustin Ackley is hitting fifth and playing first base with 1B Mark Teixeira in at DH.

Fantasy Tip: Castro is an attractive DFS option, but Ackley isn't one to trust against Jordan Zimmermann.

Yankees | Dustin Ackley to see time at 1B?

Mon, 01 Feb 2016 13:12:11 -0800

New York Yankees 2B Dustin Ackley is seen as a safety net at first base, and he's played the position extensively in the past.

Fantasy Tip: Ackley is pegged as a super utility player for the Yanks in 2016, but with injury and age concerns on this roster, he could see notable playing time eventually. He's a late-round flier in AL-only leagues.

Yankees | Rob Refsnyder at second base

Tue, 06 Oct 2015 13:38:06 -0700

New York Yankees 2B Rob Refsnyder is starting at second base and is hitting eighth against Houston Astros SP Dallas Keuchel in the wild-card game Tuesday, Oct. 6. 2B Dustin Ackley will start on the bench against the left-hander.

Fantasy Tip: Refsnyder ($3,600, 7.2% of cap) only had 30 at-bats against lefties this year and hit .267 with no home runs and an RBI. He's strictly a source of salary cap relief on FantasyScore for the wild-card round.

Yankees | Dustin Ackley starting at 2B

Sun, 04 Oct 2015 10:17:45 -0700

New York Yankees 2B Dustin Ackley will start at second base against Baltimore Orioles SP Chris Tillman Sunday, Oct. 4, and is batting eighth in the lineup. 2B Rob Refsnyder is not in the lineup.

Fantasy Tip: Ackley ($2,700, 5.4% of cap) is hitting .231 over the last seven days but two of his three hits have been home runs. Owners on FantasyScore should be able to find a better option to use.

Yankees | Chase Headley sits out

Sat, 03 Oct 2015 15:15:56 -0700

New York Yankees 3B Chase Headley is out of the lineup for Game 2 of a doubleheader Saturday, Oct. 3, with OF Dustin Ackley hitting second.

Fantasy Tip: Ackley ($2,700, 5.4% of cap) is 7-for-14 (.500) lifetime off Ubaldo Jimenez and has a couple homers this week. He's a low-end flyer worth consideration on FantasyScore.

Yankees | Dustin Ackley has been hot

Wed, 30 Sep 2015 10:18:18 -0700

New York Yankees 2B Dustin Ackley hit his third home run in the last four games Tuesday, Sept. 29, and is hitting .317 with nine RBI this month. However, 2B Rob Refsnyder may start Wednesday, Sept. 30, against Boston Red Sox left-handed SP Wade Miley.

Fantasy Tip: With Stephen Drew (concussion) unlikely to play again this season, Ackley ($2,700, 5.4% of cap) should have the strong side of a platoon at second base with Refsnyder. Avoid Ackley tonight against the lefty, but he could be a nice value pick for the rest of the year against the right right-handers.

Yankees | Stephen Drew's season over?

Tue, 29 Sep 2015 15:17:24 -0700

New York Yankees 2B Stephen Drew (concussion) needs more concussion tests, and manager Joe Girardi didn't sound optimistic that Drew would return this year. Drew has suffered through dizziness and equilibrium problems and hasn't played in more than a week. Girardi isn't expecting Drew to return. Drew will be a free agent this winter and may not return to the Yankees. 2Bs Dustin Ackley and Rob Refsnyder have been rotating at second base in a platoon arrangement.

Fantasy Tip: You can forget about Drew ($3,700, 7.4% of cap) playing again this year and ignore him on FantasyScore. Ackley ($2,700, 5.4% of cap) and Refsnyder ($2,400, 4.8% of cap) are merely deep sleepers in a great matchup.
