Yankees | Alex Rodriguez a pleasant surprise

Wed, 15 Jul 2015 10:20:53 -0700

New York Yankees 3B Alex Rodriguez barely missed making the All-Star team this year and has 18 home runs at the halfway point. His 18 homers are more than Detroit Tigers 1B Miguel Cabrera, Toronto Blue Jays OF Jose Bautista and Boston Red Sox 1B David Ortiz each have.

Fantasy Tip: Those owners who took a flier on A-Rod ($5,200, 10.4% of cap) later in their traditional drafts have reaped all the benefits. Rodriguez is also hitting .278 (81-for-291) and has driven in 51 runs at the break. He hasn't shown any signs of slowing down in the second half, and he should remain a relatively cheap and efficient FantasyScore play against the right opponents.

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.
