Yankees | Mark Teixeira snaps HR drought

Tue, 30 Jun 2015 22:55:16 -0700

New York Yankees 1B Mark Teixeira hit his 19th homer of the season Tuesday, June 30, against the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim. He snapped an 11-game homer drought, his longest of the season.

Fantasy Tip: Teixeira ($5,000; or 10.0% of cap) has taken a bit of a step backward, but he remains a solid FantasyScore play especially at this price level.

Yankees | Mark Teixeira returns to lineup

Wed, 24 Jun 2015 08:56:12 -0700

New York Yankees 1B Mark Teixeira (neck) returned to the lineup Wednesday, June 24, and is hitting cleanup.

Fantasy Tip: Tex ($4,900, 9.8% of cap) has a tough draw against Cole Hamels today, but he's a respectable .294-2-5 in 17 career at-bats against him. It's probably best to pass on FantasyScore today.

Yankees | Garrett Jones does yardwork

Tue, 23 Jun 2015 22:41:59 -0700

New York Yankees OF Garrett Jones went 1-for-5 with a solo home run Tuesday, June 23, against the Philadelphia Phillies while filling in for 1B Mark Teixeira (neck).

Fantasy Tip: Jones ($2,100; or 4.2% of cap) is likely headed back to the bench with Big Tex expected back Wednesday. However, if Jones starts again he is worth using at a low FantasyScore price.

Yankees | Mark Teixeira still sidelined

Tue, 23 Jun 2015 12:53:27 -0700

New York Yankees 1B Mark Teixeira (neck) remains out of the starting lineup Tuesday, June 23. 1B Garrett Jones is starting at first base and hitting sixth against Philadelphia Phillies SP Sean O'Sullivan.

Fantasy Tip: Jones ($2,100, 4.2% of cap), despite hitting only .247 (19-for-77) against righties this year with two home runs and eight RBI, could be a decent sleeper pick at Yankee Stadium tonight against O'Sullivan. Teixeira's injury isn't believed to be serious, but keep an eye on his progress and be hesitant to use him in your daily lineup until he returns and proves his health.

Yankees | Clean MRI for Mark Teixeira

Mon, 22 Jun 2015 20:39:11 -0700

Updating a previous report, New York Yankees 1B Mark Teixeira (neck) received his MRI results Monday, June 22, and the test results were clean with no structural damage. Teixeira did have a cortisone shot in hopes of speeding up his return.

Fantasy Tip: Manager Joe Girardi said earlier he thinks Tex ($4,900; or 9.8% of cap) will be sidelined until at least Wednesday, so FantasyScore players will want to avoid the slugger until he can officially return and prove his health in a full game without any setbacks. Garrett Jones ($2,100; or 4.2% of cap) could be a decent stopgap option in FantasyScore until Tex is ready.

Yankees | Mark Teixeira unlikely until Wednesday

Mon, 22 Jun 2015 18:16:56 -0700

Updating a previous report, New York Yankees 1B Mark Teixeira (neck) has been dealing with neck discomfort for about 10 days, and manager Joe Girardi said Monday, June 22, that he doesn't expect Teixeira back until Wednesday, June 24.

Fantasy Tip: Big Tex ($4,900; or 9.8% of cap) should be avoided in FantasyScore until he can officially return and prove his health in a full game without any setbacks. Garrett Jones ($2,100; or 4.2% of cap) filled in at first base, and is a decent low-priced option.

Yankees | Mark Teixeira aggravated neck stiffness

Mon, 22 Jun 2015 15:27:30 -0700

Updating a previous report, New York Yankees 1B Mark Teixeira (neck) underwent an MRI exam Monday, June 22, and the team is awaiting results, according to manager Joe Girardi. Girardi noted the neck injury has been troublesome for Teixeira, and it was also the reason the first baseman missed the game Wednesday, June 17.

Fantasy Tip: Health has been a significant hindrance to Teixeira's ($4,900, 9.8% of cap) fantasy stock over the past number of years, so his owners will want to be ready to make lineup adjustments to replace him, if needed. Continue to check back for updates, and don't be surprised if there is a small hit to his playing time if he avoids the disabled list.

Yankees | Mark Teixeira sitting vs. Phillies

Mon, 22 Jun 2015 12:30:56 -0700

New York Yankees 1B Mark Teixeira is not in the starting lineup Monday, June 22. OF Garrett Jones is batting sixth and playing first base against Philadelphia Phillies SP Kevin Correia Monday.

Fantasy Tip: Teixeira ($4,500, 9.0% of cap) is missing a juicy matchup against Correia. The first baseman has been a pleasant surprise for the Yankees and fantasy owners who took a late flier on him or added him from the waiver wire early. Jones ($2,100, 4.2% of cap) stands as an upside source of cap relief for FantasyScore players Monday.

Wed, 17 Jun 2015 19:19:53 -0700

Updating a previous report, New York Yankees 1B Mark Teixeira (neck) has been nursing a stiff neck, and that was the reason he was unavailable Wednesday, June 17, against the Miami Marlins.

Fantasy Tip: FantasyScore players should avoid Teixeira ($4,500; or 9.0% of cap) until he can officially return to the lineup and prove his health without any lingering effects of his injury.

Yankees | Mark Teixeira on the bench

Wed, 17 Jun 2015 13:28:29 -0700

New York Yankees 1B Mark Teixeira is not in the starting lineup against Miami Marlins SP Jose Urena Wednesday, June 17. 1B Garrett Jones is starting at first base and is batting fifth in the lineup.

Fantasy Tip: Teixeira ($4,500, 9.0% of cap) likely is receiving a day off and should return for the next game. Jones ($2,100, 4.2% of cap) is hitting .286 this month with two home runs and six RBI and could be a cheaper option on FantasyScore.
