Yankees | A-Rod begins rehab assignment

Tue, 24 May 2016 08:11:05 -0700

New York Yankees 3B Alex Rodriguez (hamstring) will begin a rehab assignment at Class AA Trenton Tuesday, May 24.

Fantasy Tip: It could only be a couple of games before he's ready to return. He was struggling before he got hurt so give him a couple of days upon returning before putting him into lineups.

Yankees | Mark Teixeira denies knee issue

Sun, 22 May 2016 17:44:01 -0700

New York Yankees 1B Mark Teixeira had his right knee wrapped in ice following a 5-4 win over the Oakland Athletics Sunday, May 22, but he said he was fine.

Fantasy Tip: Teixeira has just one hit in his last 21 at-bats, and he is hitting .193 for the year. Even if he isn't injured, he is tough to justify owning outside of AL-only formats.

Yankees | Michael Pineda ends drought

Sun, 22 May 2016 17:36:22 -0700

New York Yankees SP Michael Pineda won for the first time since his first start of the year, allowing three runs on six hits while walking one and striking out six over six innings against the Oakland Athletics Sunday, May 22.

Fantasy Tip: Consistency has been a major issue for Pineda, but his stuff is excellent, and he has 56 strikeouts in 49 2/3 innings. He is worth owning in mixed leagues, but you need to pick and choose when you start him.

Yankees | Luis Severino to throw bullpen session

Sun, 22 May 2016 17:26:05 -0700

New York Yankees SP Luis Severino (triceps) will throw a bullpen session Tuesday, May 24, and he will make a minor league rehab start later in the week.

Fantasy Tip: Severino's first full season has been a rough one, but after the upside he showed last year, he is worth stashing to see if he can return to form.

Yankees | Masahiro Tanaka ends drought

Sat, 21 May 2016 16:24:50 -0700

New York Yankees SP Masahiro Tanaka allowed a run on five hits and two walks while fanning four in seven innings to beat the Oakland Athletics Saturday, May 21. It was his first win since April 12.

Fantasy Tip: Tanaka is 2-0 with a 3.24 ERA, a 1.05 WHIP and an 8.07 K/9. It's a pretty decent line, but it was just his second start this season in which he allowed one or fewer earned runs. He's a decent SP2 in fantasy but not much more. He's worth consideration in most matchups.

Yankees | Starlin Castro snaps skid

Sat, 21 May 2016 16:21:51 -0700

New York Yankees 2B Starlin Castro broke a 3-for-22 skid with three hits Saturday, May 21.

Fantasy Tip: Castro has five homers and 17 RBI on the season, and he remains a midrange option at second in fantasy.

Yankees | Several Yanks regulars resting Saturday

Sat, 21 May 2016 11:12:29 -0700

New York Yankees C Brian McCann, OF Brett Gardner and SS Did Gregarious are not in the starting lineup against Oakland Athletics SP Sean Manaea Saturday, May 21. OF Aaron Hicks will bat sixth and play left field, 2B/OF Rob Refsnyder will play right field and bat seventh and C Austin Romine will start behind the plate and bat eighth. In addition, 3B Chase Headley is back in the starting lineup to play the hot corner and will bat fifth, while INF Ronald Torreyes bats ninth and plays shortstop.

Fantasy Tip: Of the replacements, Refsnyder is the player with the most offensive upside for DFS purposes. The 25-year-old hit .302 with two home runs and five RBI in 43 at-bats last season and was hitting .293 through 34 games for Class AAA Scranton/Wilkes-Barre this year.

Yankees | CC Sabathia reaches milestone

Sat, 21 May 2016 05:16:29 -0700

New York Yankees SP CC Sabathia allowed one run on three hits in six innings against the Oakland Athletics Friday, May 20, to pick up his third win of the season. He struck out eight batters and walked one during the game. Sabathia became the eight player in the modern era to pick up at least 100 wins with two different teams.

Fantasy Tip: Sabathia pitched well after returning from injury and has allowed only one earned run in two starts this month. He is scheduled to face the Toronto Blue Jays in his next start, which makes him a risky option for owners since Toronto has a solid offense.

Yankees | Carlos Beltran drives in three

Sat, 21 May 2016 05:07:54 -0700

New York Yankees OF Carlos Beltran went 3-for-5 with three doubles and three RBI against the Oakland Athletics Friday, May 20.

Fantasy Tip: Beltran has picked up at least one hit in five of his last six games and has 10 RBI during that span. Beltran will be in the starting lineup most days and should be a fine starting option in fantasy leagues.

Yankees | Alex Rodriguez could return next week

Fri, 20 May 2016 17:34:33 -0700

New York Yankees DH Alex Rodriguez (hamstring) isn't expected to be activated from the disabled list until next week, according to a clubhouse source. He practiced running the bases Friday, May 20, but is unlikely to resume playing before the club begins a homestand against the Toronto Blue Jays Tuesday, May 24.

Fantasy Tip: Rodriguez is batting just .194 with five home runs and 12 RBI through 20 games this year. The 40-year-old veteran is not worth stashing outside of AL-only and deep mixed fantasy leagues and should be avoided in DFS until he shows signs of turning things around offensively.

Yankees | Mark Teixeira sitting again

Fri, 20 May 2016 15:47:33 -0700

New York Yankees 1B Mark Teixeira is out of the lineup for the second straight day Friday, May 20. 2B Dustin Ackley is starting at first base again and is batting seventh against Oakland Athletics SP Sonny Gray.

Fantasy Tip: There haven't been any indications that Teixeira is hurt, but his putrid .203/.307/.301 line has earned him a spot on the bench for the time being. Despite his 31 home runs last year, Tex looks extremely overmatched this year and isn't worth keeping around in shallow leagues. You should've already been benching him for better options in other deeper leagues. Ackley is hitting .152 (7-for-46) with no home runs and is a desperation flier in daily leagues tonight.

Yankees | CC Sabathia coming off DL

Fri, 20 May 2016 05:24:21 -0700

New York Yankees SP CC Sabathia (groin) is scheduled to come off the DL and start Friday, May 20, against the Oakland Athletics.

Fantasy Tip: Sabathia, who is 2-2 with a 3.81 earned run average, will seek his 100th career victory. He may be worth a flyer in daily leagues for this, but otherwise Sabathia's pure value is in AL-only formats and deep mixed leagues.

Yankees | Alex Rodriguez could miss weekend series

Fri, 20 May 2016 05:19:56 -0700

New York Yankees DH Alex Rodriguez (hamstring) could miss the entire series with the Oakland Athletics due to his sore hamstring. Rodriguez has done some baserunning in pregame workouts.

Fantasy Tip: Rodriguez really wasn't effective prior to the injury, so you may want to greet this news with a grain of salt. Until A-Rod puts a run together, he is not worth the pickup in daily leagues. Fantasy or keeper league owners with deep benches may want to stash Rodriguez, but don't expect much in return.

Yankees | Ivan Nova wins again

Fri, 20 May 2016 05:01:36 -0700

New York Yankees SP Ivan Nova picked up his second win since moving into the starting rotation Thursday, May 19. The Yankees beat the Oakland Athletics, 4-1, as Nova pitched six innings, threw just 62 pitches, had three strikeouts and lowered his ERA to 1.65 in three starts.

Fantasy Tip: Nova has been very effective in place of CC Sabathia, and the team is climbing the American League East standings. So what is a manager to do? Joe Girardi has a dilemma on his hands. Nova has increased value because he can be used as a relief pitcher in fantasy lineups, even though he now starts. Keep him in your lineup as long as he stays in the rotation, but keep in mind Nova will lose value if removed.

Yankees | Alex Rodriguez runs bases

Thu, 19 May 2016 16:31:05 -0700

New York Yankees 3B Alex Rodriguez (hamstring) ran the bases Thursday, May 19. He ran home to first four times and first to third four times.

Fantasy Tip: Out since May 3, A-Rod appears to be getting closer to being back on the field. Even so, he has a lot of work to do to make up to his owners who have had to put up with an unpleasant .194/.275/.444 line thus far. Odds are, though, his numbers will start creeping back up to their normal levels once he's settled in following his return.
