Yankees | DL stint likely for Dustin Ackley?

Sun, 29 May 2016 14:38:07 -0700

New York Yankees INF Dustin Ackley (shoulder) was removed from the game Sunday, May 29, against the Tampa Bay Rays after suffering a shoulder injury when he dove back into first base while attempting to retrieve a pickoff throw. Manager Joe Girardi told reporters after the game Ackley will undergo an MRI and that it is a "distinct possibility" that Ackley will be placed on the disabled list.

Fantasy Tip: New York's first base situation is arguably the worst in baseball right now and one to avoid in fantasy. Regular starter Mark Teixeira, who replaced Ackley following the injury, is batting .193 and coming off a neck injury and Ackley is hitting 148 following today's effort. Prospect Greg Bird is already out for the season as well. The Yankees desperately need to look at other alternatives if they wish to remain in the playoff conversation this fall.

Yankees | Mark Teixeira out with a neck injury

Wed, 25 May 2016 13:01:39 -0700

New York Yankees 1B Mark Teixeira (neck) is not in the starting lineup Wednesday, May 25, and manager Joe Girardi said there is no timetable for Teixeira's return, but that the first baseman will visit with the team doctor Wednesday. 2B Dustin Ackley is starting at first base and batting sixth against Toronto Blue Jays SP Marco Estrada Wednesday.

Fantasy Tip: Teixeira is off to a miserable start to 2016 with just three home runs and a .195/.294/.282 slash line. It isn't out of the question to move on from the 36-year-old veteran in most mixed leagues given his lengthy injury history. View Ackley as a low-priced flier in daily contests Wednesday.

Yankees | Mark Teixeira sitting again

Fri, 20 May 2016 15:47:33 -0700

New York Yankees 1B Mark Teixeira is out of the lineup for the second straight day Friday, May 20. 2B Dustin Ackley is starting at first base again and is batting seventh against Oakland Athletics SP Sonny Gray.

Fantasy Tip: There haven't been any indications that Teixeira is hurt, but his putrid .203/.307/.301 line has earned him a spot on the bench for the time being. Despite his 31 home runs last year, Tex looks extremely overmatched this year and isn't worth keeping around in shallow leagues. You should've already been benching him for better options in other deeper leagues. Ackley is hitting .152 (7-for-46) with no home runs and is a desperation flier in daily leagues tonight.

Yankees | Mark Teixeira out of lineup

Thu, 19 May 2016 15:59:18 -0700

New York Yankees 1B Mark Teixeira is not in the starting lineup Thursday, May 19. 2B Dustin Ackley is starting at first base and is hitting seventh against Oakland Athletics SP Kendall Graveman.

Fantasy Tip: Tex is in a miserable rut and has a slash line of .203/.307/.301 on the year with three home runs and 11 RBI. He has just four extra-base hits this month. If this continues, we could see him benched more often, especially once Alex Rodriguez returns from the DL shortly. Teixeira should be left to the waiver wire in shallow leagues, and he's not a viable starting option right now even in deeper leagues. There's promise, though, as the veteran managed 31 home runs in 2015.

Yankees | Dustin Ackley will start at 1B

Wed, 11 May 2016 13:56:20 -0700

New York Yankees 2B Dustin Ackley will start at first base against Kansas City Royals SP Yordano Ventura Wednesday, May 11, and is batting fifth in the lineup.

Fantasy Tip: Ackley has gone 2-for-6 with two runs scored and two RBI over the last two games. He could be a sleeper option in some daily fantasy leagues but is not a must-start option.

Yankees | Mark Teixeira out of Tuesday lineup

Tue, 10 May 2016 13:09:51 -0700

New York Yankees 1B Mark Teixeira is not starting Tuesday, May 10, against the Kansas City Royals. 2B Dustin Ackley will bat fifth and play at first base against Royals SP Kris Medlen.

Fantasy Tip: According to the New York Post, Teixeira is in a 4-for-37 slide over his past 11 games, with one RBI and no extra-base hits. He isn't the only Yankee to slump badly early in the season, but it sounds like Teixeira is getting a night off just to rest. Needless to say, he shouldn't be in your fantasy lineup while this slump is going on. Ackley is 3-for-16 (.188) in the last week and carries no fantasy value for daily lineups.

Yankees | Jacoby Ellsbury out of the lineup

Sat, 07 May 2016 08:02:14 -0700

New York Yankees OF Jacoby Ellsbury (hip) is not in the starting lineup against Boston Red Sox SP David Price Saturday, May 7. OF Aaron Hicks will start in center field, while 2B Dustin Ackley will start in right field and is batting sixth in the lineup.

Fantasy Tip: Owners will need to keep an eye on the situation to see if Ellsbury will need to be placed on the disabled list. Ackley is hitting only .125 in limited playing time this season and probably can be avoided in most leagues.

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.
