Yankees | CC Sabathia has worst start of '16

Wed, 22 Jun 2016 15:41:50 -0700

New York Yankees SP CC Sabathia managed to escape with a no-decision Wednesday, June 22, against the Colorado Rockies, but not before spinning his worst effort of the season. The veteran southpaw lasted a season-low 4 1/3 innings, surrendering a season-high six runs (five earned) on seven hits and two walks. He also picked up three strikeouts.

Fantasy Tip: Amazingly, it was just the first time all year Sabathia has allowed more than three runs in a start, and he had surrendered two or less in each of his last seven outings. His pitching has surprisingly been one of the large reasons why the Yankees have been able to stay afloat thus far, but everyone knew his outstanding run would be coming to an end sooner than later. Even so, he's done more than enough this year for his owners to stick with him. Caution should be expressed, though, if he struggles again his next time out.

Yankees | X-rays negative for CC Sabathia

Wed, 22 Jun 2016 13:57:26 -0700

New York Yankees SP CC Sabathia (ankle) turned his ankle during his start Wednesday, June 22. His X-ray results were negative, and he is expected to make his next start, according to manager Joe Girardi.

Fantasy Tip: Sabathia was roughed up by the Colorado Rockies in the start Wednesday, as he allowed six runs -- five earned -- on seven hits and two walks. And while he owned a 2.20 ERA over 11 starts entering Wednesday, fantasy owners shouldn't be too eager to cast Sabathia as anything more than a mid-rotation starter. It is likely still best to be selective with who you start him against, too. Stay tuned for updates, but it appears he's avoided injury.

Yankees | CC Sabathia hurls another gem

Thu, 16 Jun 2016 20:37:38 -0700

New York Yankees SP CC Sabathia allowed one run on six hits while walking three and striking out seven over six innings in a win over the Minnesota Twins Thursday, June 16.

Fantasy Tip: Sabathia has struggled with pitch efficiency recently, but his ERA is down to 2.20 and he needs to be owned in all formats at this point.

Yankees | CC Sabathia leaning on cutter more

Thu, 16 Jun 2016 11:25:28 -0700

New York Yankees SP CC Sabathia said he studied how retired SPs Andy Pettitte and David Wells used their cutters to retire hitters to help him overcome his velocity loss during the offseason. Sabathia has thrown his cutter 26 percent of the time compared just just 14 percentage last year.

Fantasy Tip: After posting a 4.81 ERA through three years leading into the season, Sabathia has been one of the bigger surprises of 2016, as he sits with four wins, a 2.28 ERA and 49 punchouts through 59 1/3 innings over his 10 starts. And while it would still be wise to be selective with who you start him against, Sabathia is worth owning and rolling with in favorable matchups in all leagues.

Rangers | Cole Hamels nets 2,000th strikeout

Sun, 12 Jun 2016 14:32:41 -0700

Texas Rangers SP Cole Hamels netted his 2,000th career strikeout Sunday, June 12. Only six other pitchers active (Bartolo Colon, CC Sabathia, Felix Hernandez, John Lackey, Jake Peavy, Justin Verlander) have 2,000 strikeouts.

Fantasy Tip: This is a big honor for Hamels, whose 5-1 record and 78 strikeouts make him a popular fantasy option in daily, AL and mixed formats.

Yankees | CC Sabathia hurls gem Friday

Fri, 10 Jun 2016 19:45:35 -0700

New York Yankees SP CC Sabathia (4-4) allowed five singles over seven scoreless innings in a victory over the Detroit Tigers Friday, June 10, with two walks and four strikeouts.

Fantasy Tip: Sabathia hasn't given up more than two runs in his last six starts and hasn't allowed more than three runs in any of his 10 appearances this year. He lowered his ERA to 2.28 after Friday's outing and is worth rostering in AL-only and cavernous mixed fantasy leagues.

Yankees | CC Sabathia pitches around walks

Sun, 05 Jun 2016 16:21:30 -0700

New York Yankees SP CC Sabathia allowed two hits while walking six and striking out five over five scoreless innings in a no-decision against the Baltimore Orioles Sunday, June 5.

Fantasy Tip: Sabathia has quietly allowed two runs or less in six straight starts, and with his ERA down to 2.58, he is worth a look in AL-only and deeper mixed formats.

Yankees | CC Sabathia decent in setback

Tue, 31 May 2016 22:57:02 -0700

New York Yankees SP CC Sabathia allowed two earned runs, five hits and a walk with four strikeouts over six innings in a loss Tuesday, May 31, against the Toronto Blue Jays. He moved into sole of 23rd place on the all-time strikeouts list with 2,614.

Fantasy Tip: Sabathia was a bit uneven to start the season, but he has managed five straight quality starts to lower his ERA from 5.28 to 2.85 just since April 22. As such he has re-emerged as a must-start fantasy option across all formats.

Blue Jays | Michael Saunders out Tuesday

Tue, 31 May 2016 13:30:29 -0700

Toronto Blue Jays OF Michael Saunders is not starting Tuesday, May 31, against the New York Yankees. OF Ezequiel Carrera will play left field in place of Saunders and bat ninth against Yankees SP CC Sabathia.

Fantasy Tip: Saunders gets a rest Tuesday due to the lefty matchup. You may want to consider Carrera in a DFS league (.714 in the last week), but also remember Carrera is batting ninth so that may reduce his chances to hit and drive in runs. Play your hunch accordingly.

Yankees | CC Sabathia looks sharp in loss

Thu, 26 May 2016 17:26:48 -0700

New York Yankees SP CC Sabathia dropped to 3-3 after losing his start Thursday, May 26, opposite the Toronto Blue Jays, but he couldn't really have fared better. The left-hander hurled seven excellent innings, allowing two unearned runs on just two hits and one walk. He also struck out seven.

Fantasy Tip: How many people saw Sabathia having a renaissance season in 2016? That's been exactly the case thus far, as despite his .500 record, he now owns a desirable 2.83 ERA, while averaging nearly one strikeout per inning. Perhaps most impressive of all, the 35-year-old has surrendered just one home run in his seven starts after serving up a career-high-tying 28 long balls a season ago. If he can keep that trend up, Sabathia will continue to be a useful commodity in most leagues, if not all.
