New York Yankees OF Carlos Beltran (rib cage) remains day-to-day with a rib cage injury. If he'll only miss a few days, the Yankees will keep him on the active roster. If not, Beltran will go on the disabled list.
Fantasy Tip: Beltran ($3,900, 7.8% of cap) is in a holding pattern right now, so stay tuned. He's worth stashing in all formats if he goes on the DL. The Yanks are in luck, though, with Jacoby Ellsbury (knee) likely returning this weekend. If Beltran is forced to the DL, Chris Young ($3,000, 6.0% of cap) will likely continue to see regular playing time. He's a nice value pick on FantasyScore when facing certain left-handed hurlers.

New York Yankees OF Jacoby Ellsbury (knee) will play one more rehab game Thursday, July 2, before the Yankees decide if he's ready to come off the disabled list. "He feels ready to go," general manager Brian Cashman said. "If it were 100% up to him, then he would be in the lineup on Friday."
Fantasy Tip: Ellsbury ($4,600, 9.2% of cap) should immediately be returned to all traditional lineups when he's back. On FantasyScore, you may want to give him a game or two before trusting him back in your lineups. Chris Young ($3,000, 6.0% of cap) is likely to go back to a fourth outfield role when Ellsbury returns, depending on the status of Carlos Beltran. Young can still be an effective value play against left-handed pitchers when he draws into the lineup, though.

Fantasy Tip: Shoemaker has a 1.72 HR/9 and 14.7 percent HR/FB rate, so the Yankees have a homer-friendly matchup Wednesday. Neither Headley ($3,600, 7.2% of cap) or Young ($3,000, 6.0% of cap) are lineup locks for FantasyScore players, but they're worth a look if the price fits, especially Headley in the two-hole.

Fantasy Tip: The 25-year-old Dugas is hitting just .198-0-13 in 162 at-bats between Double-A and Triple-A. Garrett Jones could also see time in right, but his .229-4-13 line doesn't give much reason to add him on waivers. Stash Beltran if you have space.

Fantasy Tip: Teixeira ($5,000; or 10.0% of cap) has taken a bit of a step backward, but he remains a solid FantasyScore play especially at this price level.
Tue, 30 Jun 2015 22:54:40 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Early indications are Beltran ($3,900; or 7.8% of cap) will not need a stint on the 15-day disabled list, but that won't be official until he is evaluated tomorrow. Stay away from him until he officially plays and makes it through a full game without any setbacks.

Fantasy Tip: It's uncertain if this changes the original plan for Ellsbury to return from the 15-day disabled list Friday. FantasyScore players will want to see him officially return and prove his health in a game or two without any setbacks before trusting him again.

New York Yankees SP CC Sabathia is not going to be removed from the starting rotation, according to general manager Brian Cashman. Sabathia lost again to the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim Monday, June 29, and is 3-8 with a 5.59 ERA on the season. His 1.40 WHIP puts him 83rd among 99 qualified starting pitchers. The 19 home runs he's given up in 15 starts is tops in the American League and second in all of baseball. Sabathia has allowed nine home runs in his last five starts. He has only one win in the last six weeks, and he's allowed 27 hits and 17 earned runs in 23 innings since.
Fantasy Tip: Based on Sabathia's ($4,300, 8.6% of cap) performance this year, he's not worth rostering in shallow mixed leagues, and you should shy away from him on FantasyScore for the time being. At age 34, his velocity and skills are quickly declining, and it's unlikely we'll see a return to his previous dominant form ever again.
Tue, 30 Jun 2015 06:15:32 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Eovadi ($5,100, 10.2% of cap) has a 4.81 ERA and isn't much of an option on FantasyScore right now.
Mon, 29 Jun 2015 22:51:42 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Ellsbury ($4,600; or 9.2% of cap) might return Friday, but FantasyScore players should avoid him in all leagues until he can officially return and prove his health in at least one full game without any setbacks.
Mon, 29 Jun 2015 16:31:39 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Jose Pirela ($2,600, 5.2% of cap) will start at second base in place of Drew. Pirela has only two hits in his last six games and is not a great option for owners on FantasyScore.

Fantasy Tip: Ellsbury ($4,600, 9.2% of cap) should be returned to all traditional lineups when he's back from the DL. However, you might want to play it safe with him initially on FantasyScore until he gets his legs back underneath him. Chris Young ($3,000, 6.0% of cap) will lose valuable playing time when Ellsbury returns and will basically return to his role as the fourth outfielder and go back to mainly starting against lefties. He can still be very useful as a sleeper pick against certain lefties, as he has mashed southpaws this season.

New York Yankees C Brian McCann is not in the starting lineup against Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim SP C.J. Wilson Monday, June 29. C J.R. Murphy will start at catcher and is batting eighth in the lineup.
Fantasy Tip: McCann ($4,900, 9.8% of cap) likely is receiving a day off and should return soon. Murphy ($1,700, 3.4% of cap) is hitting .333 this month, but owners should be able to find a better option to use.

New York Yankees OF Jacoby Ellsbury (knee) will likely begin a rehab assignment with Class A Tampa Monday, June 29. He ran the bases effectively over the weekend and will begin playing in games if his knee responds well.
Fantasy Tip: Ellsbury ($4,600, 9.2% of cap) is a midrange OF option on FantasyScore when he returns.
Sun, 28 Jun 2015 15:53:40 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Young ($2,500, 5.0% of cap) has a .272-10-25 line following Sunday's game, one home run off his 2014 total. He's finding regular playing time so that helps his FantasyScore value.
