Yankees | Aaron Judge prepping for call-up?

Wed, 18 May 2016 10:59:22 -0700

New York Yankees OF Aaron Judge is playing all three outfield positions in the minors in case he's needed at the major league level soon. Judge is hitting .261 with seven home runs and 22 RBI in 35 games for Class AAA Scranton/Wilkes-Barre with a .791 OPS. He has 39 strikeouts, though, so he's been focusing on going the other way to cut down on his swings and misses.

Fantasy Tip: Judge is a beast at 6-7, 275 pounds and isn't your prototypical outfielder. But he has raw power (20 homers last year) that will play well in the Bronx. With New York's aging outfielders struggling, it seems like only a matter of time before Judge is in the big leagues for good. Stash him now in dynasty, AL-only and deep mixed leagues.

Yankees | Aaron Judge working with Reggie Jackson

Thu, 24 Mar 2016 10:33:13 -0700

New York Yankees OF Aaron Judge has been working with former OF Reggie Jackson, and Judge hit a home run 500 feet on a back field the other day.

Fantasy Tip: Judge is a big-bodied outfielder and has impressive skills as one of New York's top overall prospects. An injury to a Yankees outfielder this year and Judge could be the first to be called up. Keep him firmly on your radar in NL-only, deep mixed and dynasty leagues.

Yankees | Aaron Judge reassigned

Mon, 14 Mar 2016 09:21:41 -0700

New York Yankees OF Aaron Judge was sent to minor league camp Monday, March 14, ending his chances of making the team. General manager Brian Cashman said there's a chance Judge could see time in the majors this year if there is an injury. OF Aaron Hicks is expected to have the first chance at everyday playing time in the outfield if an injury pops up.

Fantasy Tip: Judge is a physical specimen and one of New York's top prospects. He has plus power with his large frame but also commands the strike zone and can use his power to all fields. In dynasty/keeper leagues, he's worth stashing. The same can probably be said for deep AL-only leagues.

Yankees | Aaron Judge impressing

Fri, 26 Feb 2016 14:33:32 -0800

New York Yankees OF Aaron Judge has been impressing with his home run blasts in spring camp this week. He hit several balls out Friday, Feb. 26, and one cleared a 40-foot-high scoreboard. "That's impressive," manager Joe Girardi said. "There aren't a lot of guys that can do that. We've talked about what a great athlete he is and obviously trying to get him the reps to where he can be a real effective player here. But it's nice to see that type of power because not everyone has it."

Fantasy Tip: Judge is one of the Yankees' top prospects, and he'd be an immediate add in deep mixed leagues if an injury in the outfield opened up playing time for him. Judge struggled at Class AAA last year, but he has plus power and the ability to use all fields. He should be firmly on the radar in all dynasty/keeper formats.

Fri, 05 Feb 2016 11:08:28 -0800

New York Yankees OF Aaron Judge, SS Jorge Mateo and SP James Kaprielian were invited to big-league camp.

Fantasy Tip: Judge appears to be the closest and could be called up at some point in 2016. All are only dynasty league options right now.

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.
