New York Yankees 3B Chase Headley or any of the other Yankees starters won't be benched, according to general manager Brian Cashman. New York has only scored 81 runs on the year, which is tied for the third fewest in all of baseball.
Fantasy Tip: Headley is hitting a measly .156 (10-for-64) to begin the year with no home runs and two RBI. He shouldn't be owned anywhere besides AL-only leagues as corner infield depth, and he could start losing playing time quickly if he doesn't turn things around.

Fantasy Tip: Rodriguez is hitting just .203, but he has three home runs in the last four games, so his bat could be waking up. He could still end up being a decent source of power in deeper mixed and AL-only formats.

Fantasy Tip: It's a classic case of lefty vs. lefty, so McCann will sit despite a .345 batting average. Romine has just one at-bat against Price, so sit him against the Red Sox. He is untested in terms of fantasy value.
Sun, 01 May 2016 16:01:42 -0700
Fantasy Tip: With Price pitching for the Red Sox, Gregorius will take a seat and avoid the lefty vs. lefty matchup. Torreyes has no batting average against Price, so for the moment he has little fantasy value.

Fantasy Tip: Beltran has a .250 batting average for his career against Price, so this appears to be just a normal night off for the veteran. Hicks has a .308 average against Price, but he also struck out six times in 13 at-bats so be a little wary.

New York Yankees SP Michael Pineda pitched a little better Saturday, April 30, against the Boston Red Sox, allowing two earned runs, five hits and three walks with three strikeouts over five innings in a loss.
Fantasy Tip: Pineda hasn't pitched particularly well this season, but he also has received a total of five runs of support over his past four outings. Stick with him in AL-only fantasy leagues and deeper mixed formats, especially for his strikeout potential.

Fantasy Tip: Tanaka has allowed three runs or fewer in each of his five starts this season and is averaging nearly a strikeout an inning. However, he should be viewed as a somewhat risky play in daily contests for his next scheduled start against the Baltimore Orioles Thursday, May 4.

Fantasy Tip: The outing was Sabathia's best of the season, but it still wasn't good enough to pick up his first win since April 9. He has a 5.06 ERA and 1.69 WHIP with 15 strikeouts over 21 1/3 innings. He is worth rostering in AL-only fantasy play, but he has tailed off so much that mixed leaguers won't want to bother with him.
Wed, 27 Apr 2016 23:57:55 -0700
Fantasy Tip: A-Rod needed a game like this, as he is still hitting just .190 with three homers and seven RBIs. He remains a must-start in all AL-only fantasy leagues, but those in mixed formats might want to reserve him until he gets untracked.
Wed, 27 Apr 2016 17:23:16 -0700
Fantasy Tip: This means that Hicks has made enough progress to avoid a trip to the disabled list. He has not played since injuring his left shoulder while diving against the Tampa Bay Rays Friday, April 22, but is not a great fantasy option.
Wed, 27 Apr 2016 14:39:52 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Torreyes has eight hits in 17 at-bats (.471) in backup duty this year. While that's impressive, it's a small sample size and shouldn't influence your decision to choose Torreyes in daily games while hitting at the bottom of New York's lineup.
Wed, 27 Apr 2016 14:35:26 -0700
Fantasy Tip: A-Rod has missed the last couple of games with an oblique issue. He's off to a rough start, hitting only .145 (8-for-55) with two home runs and six RBI, so it might be best to keep him benched until he breaks out of his season-opening slump.
Wed, 27 Apr 2016 00:21:07 -0700
New York Yankees SP Luis Severino dropped to 0-3 this season Tuesday, April 26, in a 10-1 loss to the Texas Rangers. Severino lasted only three innings, and he gave up seven hits, two walks and a wild pitch.
Fantasy Tip: Severino went into the game with the worst run support among American League starters, averaging 1.33 runs per contest. This is not like the Yankees, who have done a decent job scoring against most pitchers. Still, if New York won't hit for him for now you have no choice but to sit Severino.

Fantasy Tip: It's just a routine day off for the former RBI champion. Meanwhile, Torreyes is probably one of the last people in all of Major League Baseball to even be considered for a spot on fantasy rosters in any format. He has zero upside in his current situation.
Tue, 26 Apr 2016 15:14:42 -0700
Fantasy Tip: It'll be his second straight game not in the lineup but this is just a minor ailment, so A-Rod should be back within a few days. In the meantime, Dustin Ackley draws another start, though he's only really a dart throw in daily games. After all, the former Seattle Mariner is just 1-for-12 to start the campaign.
