Yankees | Stephen Drew to paternity list

Tue, 23 Jun 2015 11:55:44 -0700

New York Yankees SS Stephen Drew was placed on the paternity list Tuesday, June 23. INF Ramon Flores was optioned to Class AAA Scranton/Wilkes-Barre, and RP Bryan Mitchell and 2B Jose Pirela were recalled from the minors in corresponding moves.

Fantasy Tip: Pirela and Brendan Ryan ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) are likely to fill in at the keystone for the next several days with Drew gone. Both players are deep sleeper picks for the desperate in need of salary cap relief on FantasyScore.

Yankees | Stephen Drew off Sunday

Sun, 07 Jun 2015 07:53:52 -0700

New York Yankees 2B Stephen Drew is out of the lineup Sunday, June 7, against the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim. 2B Jose Pirela will start at second base and bat sixth in the order against LHP C.J. Wilson.

Fantasy Tip: Pirela ($2,100, 4.2% of cap) is hitting .438 off lefties in 16 plate appearances. Pirela has six singles and one double, but he's hitting high enough in the order to carry some potential for GPP tournaments.

Yankees | Jose Pirela starting at keystone

Tue, 02 Jun 2015 16:38:31 -0700

New York Yankees 2B Jose Pirela is starting at second base and hitting seventh in the batting order against Seattle Mariners SP Mike Montgomery Tuesday, June 2. 2B Stephen Drew shifts over to shortstop, while SS Didi Gregorius starts on the bench.

Fantasy Tip: Pirela ($2,100, 4.2% of cap) has only eight hits in 36 at-bats (.222) with no home runs and no RBI. That right there should indicate that he should be left alone on FantasyScore.

Yankees | Jose Pirela starting at keystone

Tue, 19 May 2015 13:13:18 -0700

New York Yankees 2B Jose Pirela is starting at second base and hitting seventh in the batting order against Washington Nationals SP Gio Gonzalez Tuesday, May 19. SS Didi Gregorius is on the bench, and 2B Stephen Drew has shifted over to shortstop.

Fantasy Tip: Both Pirela ($1,800, 3.6% of cap) and Drew ($2,100, 4.2% of cap) qualify as low-end second base options at FantasyScore.

Yankees | Jose Pirela starting at second

Sat, 16 May 2015 14:17:12 -0700

New York Yankees 2B Jose Pirela will start at second base and bat seventh in the order Saturday, May 16, against the Kansas City Royals and LHP Danny Duffy.

Fantasy Tip: Pirela ($1,800, 3.6% of cap) is 5-for 18 to start his 2015 major league season. All of Pirela's hits have come against left-handed pitchers, and he'll make for a nice option on FantasyScore, while also helping owners save cap space.

Yankees | Jose Pirela starting at keystone

Thu, 14 May 2015 12:54:06 -0700

New York Yankees 2B Jose Pirela is starting at second base and hitting ninth in the batting order against Tampa Bay Rays SP Erasmo Ramirez Thursday, May 14. 2B Stephen Drew is starting on the bench.

Fantasy Tip: Pirela ($1,800, 3.6% of cap) has just 14 at-bats this year (five hits), but he could eventually take more time away from the struggling Drew at second base. Until Pirela shows us more and sees more consistent playing time, he's merely a low-end flyer at FantasyScore.

Yankees | Jose Pirela starting Wednesday

Wed, 13 May 2015 13:11:11 -0700

New York Yankees 2B Jose Pirela will be the starting second baseman against the Tampa Bay Rays Wednesday, May 13.

Fantasy Tip: Pirela ($1,800, 3.6% of cap) has gone 4-for-11 since joining the team but has not played in the last three games. Owners on FantasyScore should be able to find a better option to use in their lineups.
