Yankees | Mark Teixeira still out

Sat, 29 Aug 2015 14:50:48 -0700

New York Yankees 1B Mark Teixeira (leg) is not in the starting lineup against Atlanta Braves SP Matt Wisler Saturday, Aug. 29. 1B Greg Bird will start at first base and is batting fifth in the lineup.

Fantasy Tip: Teixeira ($5,300, 10.6% of cap) is still dealing with an injury and there is no timetable for his return. Bird ($3,700, 7.4% of cap) has one hit and one RBI in his last four games and may not be the best option for owner on FantasyScore.

Fri, 28 Aug 2015 14:32:56 -0700

New York Yankees 1B Mark Teixeira (leg) is not in the starting lineup against Atlanta Braves SP Williams Perez Friday, Aug. 28. 1B Greg Bird will start at first base and is batting fifth in the lineup. Teixeira said his leg is not feeling as good as he would hope and expects to undergo more tests.

Fantasy Tip: It is not known when Teixeira ($5,300, 10.6% of cap) will be able to return to the lineup, so owners should monitor the injury. Bird ($3,700, 7.4% of cap) has only three hits in his last seven games and is not the best option on FantasyScore.

Yankees | Mark Teixeira unlikely for the weekend

Fri, 21 Aug 2015 13:33:45 -0700

New York Yankees 1B Mark Teixeira (shin) will likely miss the entire weekend series against the Cleveland Indians, according to manager Joe Girardi. 1B Greg Bird is starting at first base and batting sixth against Indians SP Carlos Carrasco Friday, Aug. 21.

Fantasy Tip: Teixeira ($5,300, 10.6% of cap) hasn't played since Monday, Aug. 17, and he was struggling through August with a .185/.254/.352 slash line, too. Bird ($1,900, 3.8% of cap) stands as an excellent source of cap relief at FantasyScore and should see regular playing time for the duration of Teixeira's absence. The matchup against Carrasco ($8,000, 16.0% of cap) Friday isn't cushy, though.

Yankees | Mark Teixeira remains out

Thu, 20 Aug 2015 13:10:26 -0700

New York Yankees 1B Mark Teixeira (shin) remains out of the lineup Thursday, Aug. 20. 1B Greg Bird continues to start at first base and is hitting sixth against Cleveland Indians SP Josh Tomlin.

Fantasy Tip: Bird ($1,900, 3.8% of cap) smacked a pair of two-run home runs last night for the Yankees, showing what he's capable of in his first major league go-around. He has excellent power skills, and he's more intriguing with the short porch in right field in the Bronx. At his price, he's hard to pass up against Tomlin tonight.

New York Yankees 1B Greg Bird hit a pair of two-run homers against the Minnesota Twins Wednesday, Aug. 19. They were the first two home runs of his major league career.

Fantasy Tip: Bird ($1,900, 3.8% of cap) is one of the biggest bargains available in FantasyScore right now. He is 6-for-18 through his first five games and should continue to see regular playing time at first base as long as Mark Teixeira (shin) is sidelined.

Fantasy Tip: Bird ($1,900, 3.8% of cap) faces Ervin Santana and is a nice basement option on FantasyScore.

Yankees | Greg Bird starts at first base

Tue, 18 Aug 2015 19:21:16 -0700

New York Yankees 1B Greg Bird made the start at first base in place of the injured 1B Mark Teixeira (shin) Tuesday, Aug. 18, against the Minnesota Twins. Bird had a multi-hit games and posted his first MLB RBI.

Fantasy Tip: Bird ($1,900, 3.8% of cap) might see a couple of starts with Big Tex nursing a deep bone bruise, although Teixeira isn't expected to hit the 15-day disabled list. Still, Bird might get some meaningful at-bats over the course of the next couple of days at a cheap price for FantasyScore players.
