Yankees | A-Rod, Beltran out Friday

Fri, 08 Apr 2016 07:47:44 -0700

New York Yankees 3B Alex Rodriguez and OF Carlos Beltran are out of the lineup Friday, April 8. 2B Starlin Castro is hitting third, and OF Dustin Ackley is hitting fifth and playing first base with 1B Mark Teixeira in at DH.

Fantasy Tip: Castro is an attractive DFS option, but Ackley isn't one to trust against Jordan Zimmermann.

Yankees | Mark Teixeira goes deep again

Thu, 07 Apr 2016 16:53:42 -0700

New York Yankees 1B Mark Teixeira hit his second home run in as many days and finished 2-for-4 with two runs scored and a three-run home run against the Houston Astros Thursday, April 7. Teixeira is hitting .364 on the young season.

Fantasy Tip: Tex clubbed 31 home runs in just 111 games last year, so as long as he stays healthy, he should return some nice power numbers, and he's off to a good start.

Yankees | Mark Teixeira returns to game action

Wed, 02 Mar 2016 20:09:15 -0800

New York Yankees 1B Mark Teixeira (shin) returned to game action in the Grapefruit League spring game Wednesday, March 2, against the Detroit Tigers. He missed the final month of the season due to a broken right shin.

Fantasy Tip: Teixeira was hitless in one at-bat with a walk while playing four innings at first base. Tex turns 36 soon. While he was on his way to another big power campaign in 2015, it wouldn't be a surprise to see a downturn this season. Still, he is a decent grab in the middle round in most fantasy formats once the elite options at first base are off the board.

Yankees | Mark Teixeira has plenty left in him

Wed, 24 Feb 2016 09:12:36 -0800

New York Yankees 1B Mark Teixeira said he wants to play until he is 40 years old. He's in the final year of his seven-year, $180 million deal with the Yankees, and 1B Greg Bird is in waiting for the first base spot.

Fantasy Tip: Tex will turn 36 this April. He was on his way to a 40-homer campaign in 2015 before injuries ended his season. The power and hard contact remain, but his injury risk is too much to bear for anything before the middle rounds of fantasy drafts.

Yankees | Mark Teixeira's rehab timeline

Fri, 11 Sep 2015 15:18:50 -0700

New York Yankees 1B Mark Teixeira (leg) will be on crutches for the next month and will need at least three months to recover from a fracture in his right leg. However, he should be ready for spring training next season. 1B Greg Bird will continue to serve as the team's starting first baseman in Teixeira's absence. General manager Brian Cashman doesn't expect to make another move to acquire a first baseman before the end of the year.

Fantasy Tip: Dump Teixeira ($4,100, 8.2% of cap) in all formats if you haven't done so already. The slugging first baseman bounced back nicely to post 31 home runs and 79 RBI in only 111 games this year. His injury could help make him affordable in 2016 drafts despite his bounceback this year.

Yankees | Mark Teixeira done for the season

Fri, 11 Sep 2015 13:43:10 -0700

New York Yankees 1B Mark Teixeira (leg) will miss the remainder of the season with a fracture in his right leg, the team announced Friday, Sept. 11.

Fantasy Tip: Teixeira ($4,100, 8.2% of cap) has been out since Monday, Aug. 17, so he hasn't been contributing much in fantasy terms for a long time. Now, though, you can safely drop the veteran and move on in all formats. Greg Bird ($4,600, 9.2% of cap) projects to continue receiving the majority of starts at first base, and he is worth a grab in the majority of leagues, as he has 15 runs, five home runs, 17 RBI and a .241/.319/.458 slash line over 24 games.

Yankees | Mark Teixeira going for more tests

Thu, 10 Sep 2015 15:30:48 -0700

New York Yankees 1B Mark Teixeira (shin) will have more tests, including an MRI exam, on his bruised right shin Friday, Sept. 11. It's looking increasingly unlikely that he will return for the regular season. Teixeira said he's still unable to walk without pain, and he continues to use crutches. He has started just one game since he fouled a ball off his shin Aug. 17.

Fantasy Tip: Given that Teixeira ($4,100, 8.2% of cap) is known as a slow healer, it is really a long shot that he makes anymore of a fantasy impact this year. You can drop him in all single-year formats. Expect Greg Bird ($4,600, 9.2% of cap) to continue serving as the starting first baseman.

Yankees | Mark Teixeira still has pain

Thu, 10 Sep 2015 12:42:29 -0700

New York Yankees 1B Mark Teixeira (shin) believes he can play again this year but is still experiencing pain when he walks.

Fantasy Tip: At this point it's a long shot for Teixeira ($4,100, 8.2% of cap) to return during the regular season, let alone for a postseason run. Drop him in all formats if you don't have the room to stash him. Greg Bird ($4,600, 9.2% of cap) should continue to see most of the starts at first base for the rest of the year.

Yankees | Mark Teixeira receives injections

Tue, 08 Sep 2015 16:55:41 -0700

New York Yankees 1B Mark Teixeira (shin) had two more injections in order to calm the nerve issues in his leg Tuesday, Sept. 8, and he remains on crutches. General manager Brian Cashman wonders if Teixeira will return at all this year.

Fantasy Tip: With each passing day, the chances of Teixeira ($4,100, 8.2% of cap) making a return in September dwindle drastically. Dropping him in your fantasy league makes sense at this point if you don't have the room and have other pressing needs.

Yankees | Mark Teixeira vows to return this year

Fri, 04 Sep 2015 15:12:07 -0700

New York Yankees 1B Mark Teixeira (shin) is still on crutches, but he said he's "100%" certain that he will make it back this year. However, he said there remains no timetable for his return to the lineup. He's played in just one full game since fouling a ball off his right shin Aug. 17. There is no permanent damage in Teixeira's shin, and he didn't hurt it any further by playing through it.

Fantasy Tip: This does Teixeira's ($4,800, 9.6% of cap) owners no good. With no timetable for a return in sight, we wouldn't blame you for cutting him from your fantasy squad if you don't have any room left on your roster.
