Sat, 27 Jun 2015 12:04:24 -0700

New York Yankees DH Alex Rodriguez is back in the starting lineup against Houston Astros SP Brett Oberholtzer Saturday, June 27, batting third.

Fantasy Tip: Rodriguez ($4,800, 9.6% of cap) was given the day off yesterday despite hitting .409 with two home runs and nine RBIs over the past week. He is batting .307 during the month of June and is a bargain in FantasyScore given how well he's played this season.

Yankees | Alex Rodriguez out vs. 'Stros

Fri, 26 Jun 2015 15:55:50 -0700

New York Yankees 3B Alex Rodriguez is not in the starting lineup Friday, June 26. OF Carlos Beltran is serving as the designated hitter against Houston Astros SP Vincent Velasquez, which allows 1B Garrett Jones to start in right field. Jones is hitting sixth in the lineup.

Fantasy Tip: Jones ($2,100, 4.2% of cap) isn't a terrible daily play tonight against Velasquez. After all, Jones has three of his four home runs against right-handed pitchers, and he' much more attractive at FantasyScore as a sleeper pick when playing games in the Bronx with a short porch in right field.

Yankees | Alex Rodriguez making more history

Wed, 24 Jun 2015 14:51:51 -0700

New York Yankees 3B Alex Rodriguez had a two-run single in the seventh inning Wednesday, June 24, to move past Al Kaline for sole possession of 27th place on the all-time hits list with his 3,008th career hit. Rodriguez now has 44 RBI on the season. He went 2-for-3 in the game with two RBI and a walk, and his average now sits at .290.

Fantasy Tip: Rodriguez ($4,800, 9.6% of cap) is surpassing any and all expectations for him at the beginning of the season after missing all of 2014 due to a performance-enhancing drug suspension. At his modest FantasyScore price, Rodriguez has to almost be in daily consideration for a lineup spot, depending on the matchups.

Yankees | Alex Rodriguez in midst of hitting streak

Wed, 24 Jun 2015 10:21:26 -0700

New York Yankees 3B Alex Rodriguez is 11-for-25 with three home runs and 10 RBI during a seven-game hitting streak that he took in to the game Wednesday, June 24. He is one hit shy of tying Al Kaline for 27th place on the all-time hit list with 3,007 hits.

Fantasy Tip: Rodriguez ($4,800, 9.6% of cap) is a bargain right now on FantasyScore the way he's been swinging the bat, and he's really turned things around this year after sitting out all of last season during his suspension. Today against Phillies starter Cole Hamels, though, he's not the strongest of daily options.

Yankees | Alex Rodriguez drives in five

Sat, 20 Jun 2015 20:35:00 -0700

New York Yankees 3B Alex Rodriguez went 2-for-3 with a home run, five RBI, two runs scored and a walk in a 14-3 win over the Detroit Tigers Saturday, June 20.

Fantasy Tip: Rodriguez ($4,700, 9.4% of cap) continues to do plenty of damage at the plate, and he has at least one RBI in four straight games. You might want to play A-Rod's hot hand at FantasyScore Sunday when Detroit sends Anibal Sanchez to the mound. Sanchez has been inconsistent all year and has been giving up plenty of homers.

Tue, 16 Jun 2015 14:18:58 -0700

New York Yankees 3B Alex Rodriguez is not in the starting lineup against Miami Marlins SP David Phelps Tuesday, June 16, because the Yankees are playing in a National League park and there is no designated hitter.

Fantasy Tip: Rodriguez ($4,700, 9.4% of cap) will return to the lineup when the team returns to play in American League parks. Rodriguez has struggled at times this month but could still be a solid option on FantasyScore when he is in the starting lineup.

Mon, 15 Jun 2015 05:32:00 -0700

Fantasy Tip: The Yankees return home Wednesday to face the Marlins again, and A-Rod ($5,100, 10.2% of cap) is five hits shy of 3,000 for his career. Avoid him on FantasyScore until then.
