Yankees | Mark Teixeira injures toe

Sun, 17 May 2015 20:31:12 -0700

New York Yankees 1B Mark Teixeira (toe) left in the seventh inning against the Kansas City Royals with a bruised right big toe Sunday, May 17. X-rays were negative, and he said his goal was to be in the lineup when the Yankees return to action Tuesday, May 19.

Fantasy Tip: Make sure to check on the status of Teixeira ($4,700, 9.4% of cap) before using him at FantasyScore Tuesday. He isn't a consistent hitter, but with 11 home and 28 RBIs, he has the power to put your lineup over the top if you catch him on the right night.

Yankees | Mark Teixeira sitting out Tuesday

Tue, 12 May 2015 13:22:41 -0700

New York Yankees 1B Mark Teixeira is not in the starting lineup Tuesday, May 12. 1B Garrett Jones is starting at first base and hitting eighth in the batting order against Tampa Bay Rays SP Chris Archer.

Fantasy Tip: Jones ($2,100, 4.2% of cap) hasn't been able to get anything going in limited at-bats off the bench this year (.152/.176/.242), and he's a weak play at FantasyScore tonight against Archer, who has developed into one of the best pitchers in the game this season.

Yankees | Mark Teixeira has lat issue

Tue, 05 May 2015 14:33:34 -0700

New York Yankees 1B Mark Teixeira (lat) is dealing with a minor lat issue but remains in the starting lineup Tuesday, May 5, according to manager Joe Girardi.

Fantasy Tip: Teixeira ($4,400, 8.8% of cap) surely hasn't lacked power in the early going, hitting nine home runs and driving in 20 already. But he's hitting only .202 and isn't of much use to FantasyScore owners if he doesn't go deep. He could go big fly again tonight against Toronto Blue Jays starter Marco Estrada, who is making his first start after being moved out of the bullpen.

Yankees | Mark Teixeira sitting Monday

Mon, 04 May 2015 13:12:47 -0700

New York Yankees 1B Mark Teixeira is not in the starting lineup Monday, May 4. 1B Garrett Jones is starting at first base and hitting seventh in the batting order against Toronto Blue Jays SP R.A. Dickey.

Fantasy Tip: Although Jones ($2,100, 4.2% of cap) has struggled in limited duty this year (.167-0-0), he does hit right-handers much better and is 6-for-16 (.375) with an RBI in his career against Dickey. Consider Jones an acceptable under-the-radar value play at FantasyScore this evening.

Yankees | Mark Teixeira finding power stroke early

Fri, 24 Apr 2015 18:58:51 -0700

New York Yankees 1B Mark Teixeira went 2-for-4 with two home runs and four RBIs in a 6-1 win over the New York Mets Friday, April 24, and he has a career-high seven home runs in April.

Fantasy Tip: Teixeira ($2,700, 5.4% of cap) has four homers in his last five games, and while his batting average remains a dismal .218, he could still make a solid source of cap relief at FantasyScore while he has his power stroke working.

Thu, 23 Apr 2015 09:31:41 -0700

New York Yankees 1B Mark Teixeira is out of the lineup Thursday, April 23, against the Detroit Tigers. 1B Garrett Jones is in at first.

Fantasy Tip: Jones ($2,100, 4.2% of your cap) could eventually have spot-start appeal on FantasyScore, but not right now.

Yankees | Mark Teixeira up to five homers

Wed, 22 Apr 2015 22:32:20 -0700

New York Yankees 1B Mark Teixeira had a three-run home run Wednesday, April 22, against the Detroit Tigers, his fifth homer of the season.

Fantasy Tip: Teixeira is hitting just .204, but he has five home runs and 13 RBIs to look like his former self. At just $2,700 (or 5.4% of cap) he is a cheap source of power for FantasyScore players.

Sat, 11 Apr 2015 07:39:04 -0700

New York Yankees 1B Mark Teixeira is not in the starting lineup Saturday, April 11.

Fantasy Tip: Alex Rodriguez ($2,600, 5.2% of cap) will be starting at first base for the Yankees Saturday. Rodriguez could be a cheaper option for owners to consider on FantasyScore.

Yankees | Mark Teixeira fine after HBP

Sun, 29 Mar 2015 19:48:29 -0700

New York Yankees 1B Mark Teixeira (knee) said he is "fine" and is not scheduled for any tests after being hit on his right knee by a pitch Sunday, March 29.

Fantasy Tip: His batting average has plummeted in recent years, but he still has the power to approach 30 homers. Teixeira ($4,100, 8.2% of cap) hit 18 of his 22 home runs against left-handed pitchers last year, and if you are going to take a chance on him at FantasyScore, make sure the matchup is right.

Yankees | Mark Teixeira leaves game early

Sun, 29 Mar 2015 09:14:57 -0700

New York Yankees 1B Mark Teixeira (knee) left a minor league game early Sunday, March 29, after he was hit in the knee by a pitch.

Fantasy Tip: Owners should monitor the situation to see if Teixeira ($4,100, 8.2% of cap) is dealing with a serious injury. If Teixeira is ready for the regular season, he could be an option for owners on FantasyScore looking for some power in their lineups.
