New York Yankees OF Carlos Beltran (hamstring) will miss at least two games after an MRI came back "clean" on his tight hamstring. Beltran leads the Yankees in home runs (19), RBI (53) and OPS (.906). His availability against the San Diego Padres without the designated hitter this weekend puts his availability in question there, too. The Yankees are not expected to put Beltran on the disabled list, though. New York isn't expected to call up OF Aaron Judge, who has seven home runs in his last 10 games with Class AAA Scranton/Wilkes-Barre.
Fantasy Tip: Beltran is having a fantastic season in the Bronx, but at his age (39), he may need extra time to heal, and the Yanks will certainly be cautious with him. Whenever he's ready to return, though, get him back into all starting lineups. Aaron Hicks, who is hitting just .206 with three homers and 15 RBI, benefits the most in right field with Beltran dinged up.

New York Yankees OF Aaron Judge has hit .353 with five home runs and 10 RBI through his past 10 games with Class AAA Scranton/Wilkes-Barre.
Fantasy Tip: Judge should debut with the Yankees sometime this season, and as the team appears to be trending in the selling direction, it could be sooner than later that he brings his high-end power to Yankee Stadium. He is a viable stash candidate in cavernous mixed and AL-only formats and a player to monitor in shallower setups.

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.

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.

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.
