Wed, 26 Aug 2015 08:34:11 -0700

New York Yankees 1B Mark Teixeira is out of the lineup Wednesday, Aug. 26. 1B Greg Bird is hitting sixth.

Fantasy Tip: No word on whether it's a planned day off or Tex suffered a setback in his return from a shin injury. Bird ($3,700, 7.4% of cap) is a low-end option against Collin McHugh on FantasyScore.

Yankees | Mark Teixeira hitless in return

Tue, 25 Aug 2015 22:39:27 -0700

New York Yankees 1B Mark Teixeira (shin) was hitless in two at-bats Tuesday, Aug. 25, against the Houston Astros in his return to the lineup. He barely was able to run to first base on a fourth-inning groundout and he was removed in the seventh inning. "That's all I got," Teixeira said. "I ran as hard as I could.

Fantasy Tip: Teixeira ($5,300, 10.6% of cap) was removed early, but the game was also a blowout. It appears he is going to tough it out through injury, but he is not recommended in FantasyScore since he is clearly not 100 percent.

Yankees | Mark Teixeira back at first base

Tue, 25 Aug 2015 13:02:41 -0700

New York Yankees 1B Mark Teixeira (leg) is back in the starting lineup Tuesday, Aug. 25, against the Houston Astros. Teixeira is batting fourth against Astros SP Dallas Keuchel.

Fantasy Tip: A sore leg has kept Teixeira ($5,300, 10.6% of cap) out of the lineup for the past week. Standard procedure says you should keep a player out for a game or two to see how he responds, but Teixeira has been hitting the ball well and has a .333 mark against Keuchel.

Yankees | Mark Teixeira to avoid DL

Mon, 24 Aug 2015 21:57:44 -0700

New York Yankees 1B Mark Teixeira (shin) was out for the seventh straight game Monday, Aug. 24, against the Houston Astros due to a bruised right shin. He is starting to feel better, although he cannot run well. "The running is still a little bit of a struggled," Teixeira said. He was on deck for a pinch-hitting appearance in the ninth inning.

Fantasy Tip: Despite the missed time, he was available as a pinch hitter and that means he will avoid a stint on the 15-day disabled list. FantasyScore players will want to avoid Teixeira ($5,300, 10.6% of cap) until he can officially return and prove his health in a full game without any setbacks.

Yankees | Mark Teixeira unable to run yet

Mon, 24 Aug 2015 13:14:19 -0700

New York Yankees 1B Mark Teixeira (shin) is unable to run yet, but he thinks he could be available to pinch hit Monday, Aug. 24.

Fantasy Tip: It looks like Teixeira ($5,300, 10.6% of cap) will avoid the DL for now, but there remains no timetable for his return to the starting lineup. Greg Bird ($3,700, 7.4% of cap) has two home runs and six RBI in 33 at-bats for the Yanks in Teixeira's place so far, and he'll start again tonight against Astros pitcher Scott Feldman. Bird is a cheap daily buy with plenty of power that is more intriguing at home in the Bronx.

Yankees | Mark Teixeira unlikely for the weekend

Fri, 21 Aug 2015 13:33:45 -0700

New York Yankees 1B Mark Teixeira (shin) will likely miss the entire weekend series against the Cleveland Indians, according to manager Joe Girardi. 1B Greg Bird is starting at first base and batting sixth against Indians SP Carlos Carrasco Friday, Aug. 21.

Fantasy Tip: Teixeira ($5,300, 10.6% of cap) hasn't played since Monday, Aug. 17, and he was struggling through August with a .185/.254/.352 slash line, too. Bird ($1,900, 3.8% of cap) stands as an excellent source of cap relief at FantasyScore and should see regular playing time for the duration of Teixeira's absence. The matchup against Carrasco ($8,000, 16.0% of cap) Friday isn't cushy, though.

Yankees | Mark Teixeira feeling better

Fri, 21 Aug 2015 11:07:52 -0700

New York Yankees 1B Mark Teixeira (shin) was moving around better Thursday, Aug. 20, but it's unclear when he will return to the starting lineup, according to manager Joe Girardi.

Fantasy Tip: Be safe and avoid Teixeira ($5,300, 10.6% of cap) until he comes back into the lineup and proves he's healthy. Greg Bird ($1,900, 3.8% of cap) is hard to ignore at his FantasyScore price with plenty of power to offer. He hit his first two major league home runs the other day.

Yankees | Mark Teixeira remains out

Thu, 20 Aug 2015 13:10:26 -0700

New York Yankees 1B Mark Teixeira (shin) remains out of the lineup Thursday, Aug. 20. 1B Greg Bird continues to start at first base and is hitting sixth against Cleveland Indians SP Josh Tomlin.

Fantasy Tip: Bird ($1,900, 3.8% of cap) smacked a pair of two-run home runs last night for the Yankees, showing what he's capable of in his first major league go-around. He has excellent power skills, and he's more intriguing with the short porch in right field in the Bronx. At his price, he's hard to pass up against Tomlin tonight.
