Yankees | Carlos Beltran to DH this weekend

Fri, 27 May 2016 19:39:09 -0700

New York Yankees OF Carlos Beltran is expected to serve as the designated hitter in one of this weekend's games against the Tampa Bay Rays because manager Joe Girardi doesn't want him playing three consecutive games on the artificial turf at Tropicana field.

Fantasy Tip: The 39-year-old Beltran is batting .262 with 11 home runs and 30 RBI through 46 games this year, including seven homers and 21 RBI during the month of May. He should be viewed as a viable option in all fantasy formats despite his age.

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 | Carlos Beltran out with no DH

Tue, 17 May 2016 16:24:08 -0700

New York Yankees OF Carlos Beltran is not in the starting lineup in a National League park Tuesday, May 17. OF Aaron Hicks is starting in right field and is batting eighth against Arizona Diamondbacks SP Zack Greinke.

Fantasy Tip: Hicks, a switch-hitter, is barely over the Mendoza Line this year (.206) and has two home runs and eight RBI in his 68 at-bats. He's really only an option in AL-only leagues for depth, and he makes for a player to avoid at a cheap cost in daily formats against Greinke.

Yankees | Carlos Beltran hits 400th home run

Sun, 15 May 2016 15:37:09 -0700

New York Yankees OF Carlos Beltran hit his 400th career home run Sunday, May 15, in a 7-5 win over the Chicago White Sox.

Fantasy Tip: It is a fitting honor for Beltran, a veteran outfielder nearing the end of his career. He already has eight home runs this season and is on pace to surpass the 19 hit a year ago. Beltran's .246/.279/.485 line proves he is still capable of doing damage in your fantasy lineup.

Yankees | Jacoby Ellsbury not ready

Sat, 14 May 2016 08:34:48 -0700

New York Yankees OF Jacoby Ellsbury (hip) is not in the starting lineup against Chicago White Sox SP Jose Quintana Saturday, May 14. OF Aaron Hicks is starting in center field, while OF Carlos Beltran will start in right field. C Austin Romine will serve as the designated hitter and is batting ninth.

Fantasy Tip: Hicks and Beltran have posted solid numbers over the last seven days and can be used in daily fantasy leagues. Romine has gone 4-for-13 with two RBI in May and may be a decent option in two-catcher leagues.

Yankees | Carlos Beltran launches two HRs

Mon, 09 May 2016 23:47:36 -0700

New York Yankees DH Carlos Beltran went 2-for-4 with a pair of solo home runs Monday, May 9, against the Kansas City Royals.

Fantasy Tip: Beltran has driven in four runs over his past three games, but he hasn't had back-to-back multi-hit games since June 22-23 last season. He is still a good AL-only fantasy option, and he is worth using in deeper mixed formats and as a mid-tier DFS play.

Yankees | Aaron Hicks enters lineup

Wed, 04 May 2016 14:29:15 -0700

New York Yankees OF Aaron Hicks is starting in right field and batting seventh against Baltimore Orioles SP Tyler Wilson Wednesday, May 4. OF Carlos Beltran is serving as the designated hitter.

Fantasy Tip: Hicks figures to benefit the most with more playing time with Alex Rodriguez (hamstring) on the DL with Beltran likely to serve as the main DH. Dustin Ackley could see more at-bats, too. Hicks is more known for his defense and has only two hits in 26 at-bats (.077) this year. Hicks and Ackley see a boost in fantasy value in the short term but are more of AL-only commodities for depth.

Yankees | Carlos Beltran not playing Sunday

Sun, 01 May 2016 15:56:37 -0700

New York Yankees OF Carlos Beltran is not in the lineup Sunday, May 1, against the Boston Red Sox. OF Aaron Hicks is batting seventh against Red Sox SP David Price.

Fantasy Tip: Beltran has a .250 batting average for his career against Price, so this appears to be just a normal night off for the veteran. Hicks has a .308 average against Price, but he also struck out six times in 13 at-bats so be a little wary.
