Yankees | Dellin Betances has toe blister

Wed, 29 Apr 2015 14:45:11 -0700

New York Yankees RP Dellin Betances (toe) is dealing with a blister on his big toe, according to manager Joe Girardi. However, Girardi said it was a non-issue.

Fantasy Tip: Betances flipped the switch after spring training once the regular season arrived. After a dismal camp that saw his velocity down, he has bounced back to strike out 17 and walk seven in 11 1/3 scoreless frames in April. His velocity is back up again, too, which should comfort his owners, even though he's currently the eighth-inning setup man to Andrew Miller.

Yankees | Dellin Betances, Andrew Miller strong

Tue, 28 Apr 2015 09:57:00 -0700

New York Yankees RPs Dellin Betances and Andrew Miller have yet to allow a run in 20 2/3 combined innings, and the Yankees' bullpen ERA is 1.77 in 71 innings. Betances, after a rough spring training in which his velocity was down, hasn't given up a hit in his last four outings over six innings, and he's looking like his All-Star self from 2014. Betances and Miller both have 17 strikeouts each. Miller has given up three hits in 9 1/3 scoreless innings, and he broke former RP Mariano Rivera's record with eight saves in the first 20 games.

Fantasy Tip: Even though Betances owners would prefer it if he were seeing save chances, they can't really complain about his bounceback after a bad spring. Miller owners are reaping the benefits, but Betances should remain owned in all leagues.

Yankees | Dellin Betances struggling with walks

Wed, 15 Apr 2015 13:33:41 -0700

New York Yankees RP Dellin Betances has walked six hitters in his first 3 1/3 innings this year, and he did not walk more than seven hitters in any month in his remarkable 2014 season. The Yankees could consider sending Betances down to get things right in the minors, but general manager Brian Cashman said the team hasn't discussed it yet.

Fantasy Tip: Betances is clearly on the outside looking in on the save's picture in New York after Andrew Miller has successfully locked down both of his save opportunities. Joe Girardi hasn't anointed Miller as the sole closer yet, though, so Betances isn't totally out of the race yet. However, he'll need to make mechanical adjustments quickly to avoid a demotion. You may want to consider benching Betances in your leagues for the time being.

Yankees | Yanks to go with matchups in ninth

Fri, 03 Apr 2015 11:48:36 -0700

New York Yankees RPs Dellin Betances and Andrew Miller will open the year sharing the closer's role, according to Joe Girardi, and the Yankees are planning to alternate the two relievers in the ninth inning depending on who the opposing team is sending to the plate. "My thought has been more like with a power lefty who strikes out a lot of guys and a power righty, the lineups just might match up where one day he's the eighth-inning guy and then one day he's the ninth-inning guy a little bit better," Girardi said. Both Betances and Miller didn't excel this spring, and Betances' fastball velocity was down in camp. Each reliever has just one career save.

Fantasy Tip: Those who handcuffed Betances and Miller to each other are rejoicing in the streets to start the 2015 season. Betances owners should be mildly concerned with his velocity dip and poor spring training. If it bleeds into April, though, Miller may have the leg up on the permanent closer role if Girardi decides to go that route.

Yankees | Closer committee official for Yankees

Fri, 03 Apr 2015 09:52:59 -0700

New York Yankees RPs Dellin Betances and Andrew Miller will be part of a committee at closer as manager Joe Girardi announced Friday, April 3, the team will not anoint one pitcher as closer.

Fantasy Tip: Miller needs to be owned in all formats if he went undrafted. Betances struggled all spring, and his velocity has been down. Neither have much experience in the role, but Miller may be in the driver's seat.

Yankees | Two could share Yanks' save chances

Fri, 03 Apr 2015 08:02:04 -0700

New York Yankees RPs Dellin Betances and Andrew Miller could share the save opportunities based on matchups as manager Joe Girardi is hesitant to name a set closer.

Fantasy Tip: Betances has had a rough spring, and his velocity is down. He had a heavy workload last year, and for good reason, he was lights-out. Miller could still be floating on waiver wires and needs to be added in most formats.

Yankees | Girardi not worried about Dellin Betances

Mon, 30 Mar 2015 09:08:46 -0700

New York Yankees RP Dellin Betances, who has a 7.11 ERA in seven spring outings, allowed an unearned run while striking out two in an inning Sunday, March 29, but his fastball reached the mid-90s. Manager Joe Girardi said he's not worried at all about Betances' confidence heading into the regular season.

Fantasy Tip: Betances is expected to have the first crack at closing duties in the Bronx, although Girardi has yet to announce a closer. Andrew Miller is another candidate for save chances. Betances has been overvalued a tad in drafts this spring, but perhaps his shaky spring performance has kept owners more honest. Handcuffing Miller to Betances is the ideal situation.

Yankees | Dellin Betances struggling

Sat, 28 Mar 2015 18:27:02 -0700

New York Yankees RP Dellin Betances has a 7.11 ERA in seven appearances this spring, and he has allowed at least one run in every appearance.

Fantasy Tip: Betances is the popular pick to land the closer's role for the Yankees, but he certainly isn't seizing the opportunity. He has the chance to be an elite fantasy closer because of his strikeout potential, but there is no guarantee he will reach his ceiling. If you draft him, make sure you pair him with another reliable reliever or two.

Yankees | Dellin Betances unhappy with velocity

Wed, 25 Mar 2015 11:29:36 -0700

New York Yankees RP Dellin Betances topped out at 94 mph with his fastball Tuesday, March 24, and he said his velocity is "nowhere near where it should be." Betances said the velocity will come, but he's been trying to do too much this spring. "It's not a concern for me, no," manager Joe Girardi said of Betances' velocity. "If it goes on for a long time, it will be a concern. Power pitchers usually take a little longer."

Fantasy Tip: A drop in velocity is usually an early sign of injury, if the situation lingers, like Girardi mentioned. For now, you shouldn't be too concerned. He's a popular closing option for fantasy baseball owners, but he's a bit overvalued, especially since Girardi hasn't named a closer yet. Andrew Miller could see save chances in the Bronx, as well, depending on matchups.

Yankees | Yanks not naming closer?

Mon, 23 Mar 2015 15:56:43 -0700

New York Yankees RPs Dellin Betances and Andrew Miller don't seem too concerned with who will be named a closer in 2015, and manager Joe Girardi isn't worried about naming a ninth-inning guy before opening day. Betances has been considered the favorite this offseason. Girardi plans to use both of them in the late innings, and both relievers said they'll be ready when the phone rings.

Fantasy Tip: Betances was one of the most dominating relievers not in a closing role in 2014, leading many to believe he'll be the guy for the Yanks in the ninth this year. However, Miller was just as dominant in his own right as a lefty specialist, mainly. This could wind up being a closer-by-committee based on matchups in the ninth. Both pitchers are worth drafting for saves in mixed leagues, but be careful not to overvalue Betances with the closing gig in the Bronx cloudy.
