Yankees | Alex Rodriguez to remain at DH

Thu, 26 May 2016 11:08:20 -0700

New York Yankees 3B Alex Rodriguez will continue to serve as the primary designated hitter with OF Carlos Beltran playing right field and occasionally serving as the DH, according to manager Joe Girardi.

Fantasy Tip: A-Rod is making his first start off the DL Thursday. It makes sense to keep him benched given he was hitting only .194 before his injury. But Rodriguez can still provide decent power numbers in mixed leagues if he can get things turned around.

Yankees | Alex Rodriguez activated, starting

Thu, 26 May 2016 10:27:30 -0700

New York Yankees 3B Alex Rodriguez (hamstring) was activated from the disabled list Thursday, May 26, and is serving as the designated hitter and batting fifth against Toronto Blue Jays SP J.A. Happ.

Fantasy Tip: A-Rod has taken a big step back this year (.194/.275/.444) after slugging 33 home runs in a resurgent 2015 season. It was an uphill climb to match those numbers, but the veteran slugger can still provide decent power numbers when healthy, and he should be able to improve on his current line. Given his struggles to start the year, though, you may want to take a wait-and-see approach before putting him back into your lineups.

Yankees | Alex Rodriguez ready to return Thursday

Wed, 25 May 2016 13:09:38 -0700

New York Yankees DH Alex Rodriguez (hamstring) is expected to be activated from the disabled list and play against the Toronto Blue Jays Thursday, May 26.

Fantasy Tip: Rodriguez is worth owning in the majority of seasonal leagues, and he did hit 33 home runs last season, but you'll want to keep your expectations in check with the 40-year-old veteran. It might be best to take a wait-and-see approach since he posted an underwhelming .194/.275/.444 slash line through 80 plate appearances before the injury.

Yankees | A-Rod begins rehab assignment

Tue, 24 May 2016 08:11:05 -0700

New York Yankees 3B Alex Rodriguez (hamstring) will begin a rehab assignment at Class AA Trenton Tuesday, May 24.

Fantasy Tip: It could only be a couple of games before he's ready to return. He was struggling before he got hurt so give him a couple of days upon returning before putting him into lineups.

Yankees | Alex Rodriguez could return next week

Fri, 20 May 2016 17:34:33 -0700

New York Yankees DH Alex Rodriguez (hamstring) isn't expected to be activated from the disabled list until next week, according to a clubhouse source. He practiced running the bases Friday, May 20, but is unlikely to resume playing before the club begins a homestand against the Toronto Blue Jays Tuesday, May 24.

Fantasy Tip: Rodriguez is batting just .194 with five home runs and 12 RBI through 20 games this year. The 40-year-old veteran is not worth stashing outside of AL-only and deep mixed fantasy leagues and should be avoided in DFS until he shows signs of turning things around offensively.

Yankees | Alex Rodriguez could miss weekend series

Fri, 20 May 2016 05:19:56 -0700

New York Yankees DH Alex Rodriguez (hamstring) could miss the entire series with the Oakland Athletics due to his sore hamstring. Rodriguez has done some baserunning in pregame workouts.

Fantasy Tip: Rodriguez really wasn't effective prior to the injury, so you may want to greet this news with a grain of salt. Until A-Rod puts a run together, he is not worth the pickup in daily leagues. Fantasy or keeper league owners with deep benches may want to stash Rodriguez, but don't expect much in return.

Yankees | Alex Rodriguez runs bases

Thu, 19 May 2016 16:31:05 -0700

New York Yankees 3B Alex Rodriguez (hamstring) ran the bases Thursday, May 19. He ran home to first four times and first to third four times.

Fantasy Tip: Out since May 3, A-Rod appears to be getting closer to being back on the field. Even so, he has a lot of work to do to make up to his owners who have had to put up with an unpleasant .194/.275/.444 line thus far. Odds are, though, his numbers will start creeping back up to their normal levels once he's settled in following his return.

Yankees | Alex Rodriguez unlikely for Thursday

Tue, 17 May 2016 22:10:09 -0700

New York Yankees 3B Alex Rodriguez (hamstring) likely will not be able to play against the Oakland Athletics Thursday, May 19, but manager Joe Girardi hopes he can play at some point during the series against Oakland.

Fantasy Tip: Rodriguez still needs to test his hamstring out before he can be activated from the disabled list. Owners should keep an eye out on the situation but probably should keep him out of their lineups until they see him play in a game or two.

Yankees | Alex Rodriguez scheduled to run

Tue, 17 May 2016 18:29:10 -0700

New York Yankees 3B Alex Rodriguez (hamstring) is scheduled to run the bases Wednesday, May 18. His status for the game against the Oakland Athletics Thursday, May 19, is uncertain.

Fantasy Tip: Owners will need to keep an eye on the situation to see if Rodriguez will be activated in the next few days. Owners may want to see him play in a game or two before adding him back to their lineups.

Yankees | Alex Rodriguez to be activated Thursday

Mon, 16 May 2016 15:49:21 -0700

New York Yankees 3B Alex Rodriguez (hamstring) hit on the field Monday, May 16, in Arizona. The plan is for him to be activated when he's eligible to return Thursday, May 19, and serve as the designated hitter against the Oakland Athletics.

Fantasy Tip: Good for A-Rod that he'll be able to return to the club as soon as he can be activated, but his fantasy owners are hoping for a much better showing compared to how he performed prior to landing on the disabled list. The 40-year-old has produced an underwhelming .194/.275/.444 line thus far and really should only be started on rosters in deeper leagues.
