Yankees | No plans to recall Aaron Judge

Thu, 27 Aug 2015 12:52:04 -0700

New York Yankees OF Aaron Judge is not expected to be recalled from Class AAA Scranton/Wilkes-Barre when rosters expand in September, according to general manager Brian Cashman.

Fantasy Tip: Judge is the No. 1 hitting prospect in the system. He has 60 runs, 20 home runs, 70 RBI and a .262/.337/.469 slash line across two levels this season. He is just 23, though, and has 131 strikeouts this season, so there is still room for growth. He is worth monitoring in all keeper/dynasty formats and is even worth ownership in some of the deep ones.

Yankees | NY not trading three prospects

Fri, 31 Jul 2015 07:12:36 -0700

New York Yankees OF Aaron Judge, SP Luis Severino and 1B Greg Bird remain untouchable at the trade deadline.

Fantasy Tip: Severino may be the closest to a big-league call-up, especially with injuries decimating the Yankees rotation. All three are candidates to be owned in dynasty and keeper leagues right now, and you may want to consider stashing them in AL-only leagues, too.

Yankees | David Price drawing interest from Yanks

Wed, 29 Jul 2015 14:57:58 -0700

Detroit Tigers SP David Price is now firmly on the trade block as the Tigers informed teams that they will be sellers at the deadline Wednesday, July 29. The Los Angeles Dodgers, Houston Astros, Toronto Blue Jays, San Francisco Giants and Chicago Cubs are also looking to upgrade their rotations and figure to be interested in Price. The Yankees have insisted that they won't give up OF Aaron Judge, 1B Greg Bird, SS Jorge Mateo or SP Luis Severino, though.

Fantasy Tip: Price ($9,100, 18.2% of cap) will be a free agent after this year, so there's a very good chance he'll be dealt before Friday. A move to New York, or any other team, wouldn't drastically affect his fantasy value as a top-tier starter.

Yankees | NY looking at Craig Kimbrel

Tue, 28 Jul 2015 11:24:26 -0700

San Diego Padres RP Craig Kimbrel has come up in trade talks with the New York Yankees. The Yankees have no intentions of trading SP Luis Severino, OF Aaron Judge, 1B Greg Bird or SS Jorge Mateo in any trades. A person familiar with the Padres' thinking believes the Yankees would have to change that stance for any deal to happen.

Fantasy Tip: The Yanks already have a lights-out bullpen, so this trade would be a bit peculiar. If Kimbrel lands with the Yanks, he'd be expected to close for them, basically ruining much of Andrew Miller's fantasy value. In San Diego, either Joaquin Benoit or Brandon Maurer could be used in the ninth inning for saves.

Yankees | Cole Hamels an option for Yankees?

Sat, 25 Jul 2015 09:49:26 -0700

Philadelphia Phillies SP Cole Hamels is a player the New York Yankees have inquired about recently, according to sources. The Phillies are believed to have interest in OF Aaron Judge, but the Yankees have said they will not trade him.

Fantasy Tip: The Yankees are looking to upgrade their rotation and may have the prospects to take a run at Hamels ($8,300, 16.6% of cap). There is a good chance that Hamels will be traded before the deadline, and his fantasy value will be determined by which team he will be pitching for after the deadline.

Yankees | N.Y. prospects off limits

Fri, 17 Jul 2015 11:01:22 -0700

New York Yankees SP Luis Severino, OF Aaron Judge and 1B Greg Bird are said to be off limits at the trade deadline, and 2B Rob Refsnyder could also be in that group. The Yankees are searching for a starting pitcher this summer, but their chances of landing one will diminish if they are reluctant to part with their coveted prospects.

Fantasy Tip: Severino and Judge are the team's top prospects, and both of them are performing well in the minors and could be called up in the second half of the season. None of this trio is likely to have much of a fantasy impact in 2015, but they should definitely be firmly on the radar of those playing in keeper or dynasty leagues.

Yankees | Cole Hamels willing to join Yanks

Tue, 23 Jun 2015 16:56:32 -0700

Philadelphia Phillies SP Cole Hamels is willing to waive his no-trade clause in order to play for the New York Yankees. The Yankees appear to have Cincinnati Reds SPs Johnny Cueto and Mike Leake near the top of their wish list this summer, too. "The opportunity to play for a team that could ultimately get to the World Series is what every guy hopes for and what every guy works for, starting with the offseason and spring training," Hamels said. Yankees OF Aaron Judge and SP Luis Severino intrigue the Phillies, although it looks like Severino won't be dealt.

Fantasy Tip: Hamels ($9,000, 18.0% of cap) remains an elite fantasy starting pitcher despite playing for the lowly Phillies. He'd certainly receive a boost to his value with a move out of Philly and to a contending team with a respectable offense to back him. Buying Hamels right now would be ideal if you can convince his current owner to part with him.

Yankees | Aaron Judge promoted to Class AAA

Mon, 22 Jun 2015 14:38:30 -0700

New York Yankees OF Aaron Judge was promoted to Class AAA Scranton/Wilkes-Barre Monday, June 22.

Fantasy Tip: Judge scored 36 runs, hit 12 home runs, drove in 44 and registered a .284/.350/.516 slash line over 63 games with Class AA Trenton. He is a late-blooming prospect who boasts an impressive 6-4, 270-pound frame. He could reach the majors and make an impact later in 2015, if he hits the ground running at Class AAA. In cavernous mixed and AL-only formats, Judge is worth monitoring.

Yankees | Yanks interested in Mike Leake?

Fri, 19 Jun 2015 17:59:18 -0700

The New York Yankees have been rumored to be interested in Cincinnati Reds SP Mike Leake, although they are unwilling to part with one of their top prospects, such as P Luis Severino or OF Aaron Judge.

Fantasy Tip: Leake ($4,900, 9.8% of cap) will be a free agent after the season, which explains why the Yankees are hesitant to part with a big-name prospect in exchange for him. Entering play Friday, June 19, he was 3-4 with a 4.35 ERA in 13 starts.
