Yankees | Slade Heathcott in lineup Friday

Fri, 22 May 2015 12:37:37 -0700

New York Yankees OF Slade Heathcott is in the starting lineup Friday, May 22, and is batting ninth against the Texas Rangers.

Fantasy Tip: Heathcott is likely batting because the Rangers have a righty on the mound in Colby Lewis. Wait one or two games to see how overmatched (or not) Heathcott is at the plate against MLB pitching.

Yankees | Slade Heathcott set for plenty of at-bats

Wed, 20 May 2015 16:31:24 -0700

New York Yankees OF Slade Heathcott is expected to play a lot against right-handed pitchers with OF Jacoby Ellsbury (knee) on the disabled list.

Fantasy Tip: Heathcott is worth a speculative add in AL-only and cavernous mixed leagues, although, he has only played 37 game above Class AA. He was just recalled to the Yankee Wednesday, May 20, so take a wait-and-see approach in all other fantasy formats, including FantasyScore.

Yankees | Jacoby Ellsbury has sprained knee

Wed, 20 May 2015 10:24:28 -0700

New York Yankees OF Jacoby Ellsbury (knee) is dealing with a sprained right knee that has landed him on the disabled list. He hurt himself swinging in the fourth inning of the game Tuesday, May 19, and he went for an MRI exam. The Yankees could move OF Brett Gardner to center field, OF Chris Young could play center field. OF Slade Heathcott, who was recalled from the minors, is another option in center.

Fantasy Tip: There's no timetable for Ellsbury's ($5,900, 11.8% of cap) return, but given his history with nagging ailments, you should plan for the worst and a stay beyond the 15 days on the DL. Young ($3,200, 6.4% of cap) should now see regular playing time, boosting his value in deep mixed and AL-only leagues. Young is a fine weapon for FantasyScore lineups against southpaws. Heathcott is strictly an AL-only commodity in deep setups.

Yankees | Hope for Zachary Heathcott

Wed, 05 Feb 2014 20:07:02 -0800

New York Yankees OF prospect Zachary Heathcott has had trouble staying healthy, but one National League scout feels the 2009 draft pick can still be good. "I think he can still be an above-average outfielder," the scout said. "We are not at the finish line yet." Heathcott has not played above the Double-A level yet.

New York Yankees C Chris Stewart (shoulder) was hit on the shoulder by a foul tip but will play Saturday, March 16. OF Zachary Heathcott (knee) is dealing with patellar tendonitis.

Fantasy Tip: Stewart is competing with Francisco Cervelli for the starting gig, but Cervelli has a leg up in the competition. Stewart should only be considered in AL-only leagues, and deep ones at that.
