Yankees | Masahiro Tanaka rebounds

Sat, 18 Apr 2015 20:06:55 -0700

New York Yankees SP Masahiro Tanaka allowed two hits and struck out eight over seven scoreless innings in a 9-0 win over the Tampa Bay Rays Saturday, April 18, lowering his ERA from 7.00 to 3.94.

Fantasy Tip: Tanaka ($7,500, 15.0% of cap) struggled with his control in his first two outings, but he looked like an ace-caliber pitcher Saturday. That being said, it may be best to wait until Tanaka has another strong outing under his belt before paying his hefty salary at FantasyScore.

Yankees | Carlos Beltran out Saturday

Sat, 18 Apr 2015 14:28:44 -0700

New York Yankees OF Carlos Beltran (illness) is out of the lineup Saturday, April 18, due to illness. He's questionable for Sunday, April 19, as well.

Fantasy Tip: Chris Young ($2,200, 4.4% of your cap) has had a solid start to the season with a .292-2-4 line in 24 at-bats. He's a late plug-and-play option on FantasyScore, but he's facing a hot starter in Tampa Bay Rays SP Jake Odorizzi.

Yankees | Alex Rodriguez launches a pair

Fri, 17 Apr 2015 18:20:25 -0700

New York Yankees 3B Alex Rodriguez hit a pair of home runs against the Tampa Bay Rays Friday, April 17, notching his first multi-home run game since May of 2012 in the process.

Fantasy Tip: Rodriguez ($2,600, 5.2% of cap) was a bit of an unknown heading into the season after being suspended last year, but he already has four home runs and is off to a strong start. Whether his body holds up remains to be seen, but for now, he is a steal at FantasyScore.

Yankees | Brett Gardner hopes to return Saturday

Fri, 17 Apr 2015 13:56:48 -0700

New York Yankees OF Brett Gardner (wrist) will take batting practice Friday, April 17, and he hopes to return to the lineup Saturday, April 18.

Fantasy Tip: Gardner ($3,300, 6.6% of cap) hasn't played since Monday with a bruised wrist. It'd probably be a smart move to avoid Gardner for the rest of the weekend to let him recover from his wrist ailment. He'd also be facing a hot pitcher in Jake Odorizzi from the Tampa Bay Rays tomorrow, if he returns.

Yankees | Brett Gardner still out

Fri, 17 Apr 2015 13:33:13 -0700

New York Yankees OF Brett Gardner (wrist) remains out of the starting lineup Friday, April 17. OF Chris Young is starting in left field in his place yet again and hitting eighth in the batting order against Tampa Bay Rays SP Nathan Karns.

Fantasy Tip: Young ($2,200, 4.4% of cap) has two home runs and a .318 average (7-for-22) to start the season. He's typically an all-or-nothing type of player with plenty of power, but he's a dice roll at FantasyScore, especially hitting at the bottom of the lineup.

Yankees | Bone bruise for Brett Gardner

Thu, 16 Apr 2015 11:57:00 -0700

New York Yankees OF Brett Gardner's (wrist) MRI exam confirmed a bone bruise on his right wrist Thursday, April 16.

Fantasy Tip: Gardner ($3,000, 6.6% of cap) could return to the team's lineup Friday evening after an off day Thursday. Check to make sure he's in there before running with him at FantasyScore, though. If he's starting, he'd be facing Tampa Bay Rays starter Nathan Karns, which is a good matchup.

Yankees | Nathan Eovaldi racks up decent K total

Wed, 15 Apr 2015 21:11:43 -0700

New York Yankees SP Nathan Eovaldi allowed two earned runs and eight hits with three walks and nine strikeouts over five innings in a no-decision against the Baltimore Orioles Wednesday, April 15.

Fantasy Tip: Eovaldi crushed fantasy owners in rotisserie formats in the WHIP category, but his nine punchouts were very pleasing to FantasyScore players at just $4,100 (or 8.2% of cap). His next probable start is set for April 21 in Detroit, so you might want to avoid against a solid hitting club on the road.

Yankees | Chris Capuano still a ways off

Wed, 15 Apr 2015 21:11:13 -0700

New York Yankees SP Chris Capuano (quadriceps) is still about a month away from coming off the 15-day disabled list, manager Joe Girardi said Wednesday, April 15.

Fantasy Tip: Capuano is making his way back from a strained right quadriceps. FantasyScore need not bother with Capuano until he can officially return and knock off the rust in at least a start or two.

Yankees | Brian McCann struggling with twig

Wed, 15 Apr 2015 21:10:43 -0700

New York Yankees C Brian McCann was hitless in three at-bats with a sacrifice fly Wednesday, April 15, against the Baltimore Orioles, finishing 0-for-7 in the series.

Fantasy Tip: McCann had a pair of multi-hit games over the weekend against Boston, but he has struggled overall. He has at least one strikeout in five of his six games this season, whiffing six times in 22 at-bats. At $4,200 (or 8.4% of cap) you can do a little better than McCann in FantasyScore.

Yankees | Dellin Betances struggling with walks

Wed, 15 Apr 2015 13:33:41 -0700

New York Yankees RP Dellin Betances has walked six hitters in his first 3 1/3 innings this year, and he did not walk more than seven hitters in any month in his remarkable 2014 season. The Yankees could consider sending Betances down to get things right in the minors, but general manager Brian Cashman said the team hasn't discussed it yet.

Fantasy Tip: Betances is clearly on the outside looking in on the save's picture in New York after Andrew Miller has successfully locked down both of his save opportunities. Joe Girardi hasn't anointed Miller as the sole closer yet, though, so Betances isn't totally out of the race yet. However, he'll need to make mechanical adjustments quickly to avoid a demotion. You may want to consider benching Betances in your leagues for the time being.

Yankees | Brett Gardner remains out Wednesday

Wed, 15 Apr 2015 13:03:36 -0700

New York Yankees OF Brett Gardner (wrist) remains out of the starting lineup Wednesday, April 15. OF Chris Young is starting in left field and hitting eighth in the batting order against Baltimore Orioles SP Bud Norris.

Fantasy Tip: Gardner could return to the lineup later this week if he can swing a bat. Young ($2,200, 4.4% of cap) has appeared in each of the team's last seven games, and he's hitting .333 with two homers in the early going. Young isn't the biggest fantasy name out there, but while he's seeing consistent playing time, he's worth a look as a cheap FantasyScore option against Norris in a hitter's park.

Yankees | Brett Gardner hopes to take swings

Tue, 14 Apr 2015 20:06:26 -0700

New York Yankees OF Brett Gardner (wrist) said Tuesday, April 14, that his wrist is still "pretty sore." He is hopeful of taking some swings Wednesday, April 15.

Fantasy Tip: FantasyScore owners would be wise to avoid Gardner until he can officially return and prove his health in a full game without any setbacks. He is unlikely to play until Friday at the earliest, so Chris Young ($2,200; 4.4% of cap) figures to be the biggest beneficiary of at-bats.

Yankees | Andrew Miller not named closer

Tue, 14 Apr 2015 14:36:06 -0700

New York Yankees RP Andrew Miller has yet to be named as the team's closer by manager Joe Girardi.

Fantasy Tip: Miller had a five-out save last night against the Baltimore Orioles, and he's clearly in the lead for save chances over Dellin Betances, who had a rough spring and has carried it over into the regular season. Both Yanks relievers should be owned in all fantasy leagues.

Yankees | Brett Gardner out until Friday?

Tue, 14 Apr 2015 14:34:00 -0700

New York Yankees OF Brett Gardner (wrist) is unlikely to return to the starting lineup until Friday, April 17.

Fantasy Tip: Stay away from Gardner ($3,300, 6.6% of cap) for the rest of the week at FantasyScore. Chris Young ($2,200, 4.4% of cap) is starting again Tuesday night, but he's on the low end of the outfield fantasy spectrum for daily gamers.

Yankees | Andrew Miller earns another save

Tue, 14 Apr 2015 13:06:50 -0700

New York Yankees RP Andrew Miller picked up his second save in as many chances Monday, April 13, when he recorded the final five outs in a 6-5 win over the Baltimore Orioles.

Fantasy Tip: Miller and Dellin Betances have been going back and forth for save opportunities. Betances has struggled with his command a little bit, but Yankees manager Joe Girardi has not committed either way. Keep an eye on how this situation works out.
