Yankees | Five players with low OPS

Sun, 29 Jun 2014 23:51:14 -0700

The New York Yankees have five players with at least 200 at-bats who have an on base plus slugging percentage of .660 or lower, including free-agent pickups in 2B Brian Roberts, C Brian McCann and OF Carlos Beltran. The other two are SS Derek Jeter and OF Alfonso Soriano.

Fantasy Tip: And yet the Yankees are three games over .500. It just shows you how no one is running away with this division, but the fact is all five of these players carry fantasy risks because of the low OPS numbers.

Yankees | Brian Roberts nursing back injury

Sun, 13 Apr 2014 19:05:51 -0700

New York Yankees general manager Brian Cashman said Sunday, April 13, that 2B Brian Roberts (back) complained of a lower back issue. The severity of the injury is unclear.

Fantasy Tip: And so it begins. Roberts is a talented player when he is healthy, but fantasy owners are starting to forget those days. For now, consider him day to day. If you have healthier alternatives heading into the upcoming week, use them. Roberts hasn't exactly shown a penchant for returning from injuries, nagging or otherwise.

Yankees | Brian Roberts to start

Mon, 17 Feb 2014 12:07:35 -0800

New York Yankees manager Joe Girardi said 2B Brian Roberts will start for the team at second base this season. "That is the plan, for him to be our second baseman," Girardi said. "I know he hasn't played a full season in the last few years, he's obviously a guy who has some age on him too, but my plan is to run him out there every day." 3B Kelly Johnson is slated to at least platoon at third base. 2B Brendan Ryan is also a candidate to see time at the keystone.
