Yankees | Alex Rodriguez looking at weekend off?

Wed, 26 Aug 2015 14:27:36 -0700

New York Yankees 3B Alex Rodriguez is unlikely to play the field during the upcoming weekend road series against the Atlanta Braves, according to manager Joe Girardi.

Fantasy Tip: Without the option to serve as a designated hitter, Rodriguez ($5,500, 11.0% of cap) will be limited to pinch-hitting duty. It would be a little surprising to see him miss all three games, though, so make sure to check back for updates. Still, you'll want to prepare for the worst and have alternative hitters ready. Plus, after a scorching July, Rodriguez owns a horrible .145/.261/.263 slash line in August.

Yankees | Alex Rodriguez sitting again

Sun, 23 Aug 2015 08:26:39 -0700

New York Yankees 3B Alex Rodriguez is not in the starting lineup against Cleveland Indians SP Trevor Bauer Sunday, Aug. 23. C Brian McCann will serve as the designated hitter and is batting fourth, while C J.R. Murphy will start at catcher and is batting ninth in the lineup.

Fantasy Tip: Rodriguez ($5,300, 10.6% of cap) should return to the lineup in the near future. Murphy ($1,700, 3.4% of cap) has only two hits in his last six games and probably could be avoided on FantasyScore.

Yankees | Alex Rodriguez will not start

Sat, 22 Aug 2015 08:24:13 -0700

New York Yankees 3B Alex Rodriguez is not in the starting lineup against Cleveland Indians SP Danny Salazar Saturday, Aug. 22. C Brian McCann will serve as the designated hitter and is batting fourth, while C J.R. Murphy will start at catcher and is batting ninth.

Fantasy Tip: Rodriguez ($5,300, 10.6% of cap) probably is receiving a day off and should play in the next game or two. Murphy ($1,700, 3.4% of cap) is hitting only .222 this month and is not the best option for owners on FantasyScore.

Yankees | Alex Rodriguez licking his chops Wednesday

Wed, 19 Aug 2015 10:23:24 -0700

New York Yankees 3B Alex Rodriguez is 12-for-36 with four home runs in his career against Minnesota Twins SP Ervin Santana, who he faces Wednesday, Aug. 19.

Fantasy Tip: Rodriguez ($5,300, 10.6% of cap) had been slumping at the plate before hitting a clutch grand slam last night. Perhaps that gets him going again. With numbers like that against Santana, he's definitely intriguing on FantasyScore this afternoon.

Yankees | Alex Rodriguez gets on track with slam

Tue, 18 Aug 2015 20:15:57 -0700

New York Yankees 1B Alex Rodriguez snapped a slump with a grand slam Tuesday, Aug. 18, against the Minnesota Twins. The grand slam was the 25th of his career, extending his major league record.

Fantasy Tip: A-Rod ($5,300, 10.6% of cap) has re-emerged as a must-start FantasyScore option this season due to his power potential. He is up to 25 homers with 67 RBIs in his comeback season.

Yankees | Alex Rodriguez will not start

Sat, 15 Aug 2015 08:00:55 -0700

New York Yankees 3B Alex Rodriguez is not in the starting lineup against Toronto Blue Jays SP Marco Estrada Saturday, Aug. 15. 1B Mark Teixeira will serve as the designated hitter and is batting fourth, while 1B Greg Bird will start at first base and is batting sixth.

Fantasy Tip: Rodriguez ($5,600, 11.2% of cap) likely is receiving a day off and will return to the lineup soon. Bird has gone hitless in his five at-bats with the Yankees this season and should not be an option in fantasy leagues.

Yankees | Mark Teixeira, A-Rod wearing down?

Thu, 13 Aug 2015 11:20:26 -0700

New York Yankees 1B Mark Teixeira has only four hits in his last 28 at-bats, and 3B Alex Rodriguez is 6-for-37 (.162) in August and hasn't homered since July 27.

Fantasy Tip: Are Tex ($5,400, 10.8% of cap) and Rodriguez ($5,600, 11.2% of cap) wearing down as the season winds down? It's possible, even after both players have been very productive for their owners this year. Keep it in mind, though, and it might be smart to avoid them in all formats until they show signs of climbing out of their slumps.

Yankees | Greg Bird coming up for Yanks

Thu, 13 Aug 2015 09:50:39 -0700

New York Yankees 1B Greg Bird will be called up from the minors to make his major league debut. He will serve as the backup to 1B Mark Teixeira at first base and to 3B Alex Rodriguez at designated hitter.

Fantasy Tip: Bird is one of New York's top position player prospects, and he hit .277 (88-for-318) with 12 home runs and 52 RBI in two minor league stops in 2015. The left-handed hitter won't have a prominent role in the Bronx unless an injury to a starter occurs, so he's really only valuable to those in really deep AL-leagues and dynasty formats.

Yankees | Alex Rodriguez on homer binge

Tue, 28 Jul 2015 13:31:26 -0700

New York Yankees 3B Alex Rodriguez has hit four home runs in his last two games. He became the fourth player in major league history to hit a home run as a teenager and in his 40s Monday, July 27.

Fantasy Tip: Rodriguez ($5,800, 11.6% of cap) continues his fine season after sitting out all of 2014. A-Rod has a 1.030 OPS with nine of his 24 home runs against left-handers this year, making him a fine pick on FantasyScore tonight against Texas Rangers lefty Martin Perez.

Yankees | Alex Rodriguez on the bench

Sun, 26 Jul 2015 11:04:45 -0700

New York Yankees 3B Alex Rodriguez is not in the starting lineup against Minnesota Twins SP Kyle Gibson Sunday, July 26. 1B Mark Teixeira will serve as the designated hitter and is batting third in the lineup.

Fantasy Tip: Rodriguez ($5,500, 11.0% of cap) is receiving a day off after a terrific performance Saturday, July 25. Teixeira ($5,000, 10.0% of cap) has recorded at least two hits in six of his last seven games and is a solid starting option on FantasyScore.
