Yankees | Mark Teixeira DL trip possible

Wed, 23 Jul 2014 15:38:33 -0700

New York Yankees 1B Mark Teixeira (lat) may require a DL stint, according to general manager Brian Cashman.

Fantasy Tip: Tex's up-and-down season seems to have hit another valley. Brian McCann may line up at first base for the duration, especially with INF/OF Kelly Johnson (groin) on the disabled list. It'd be good for McCann's value to play more frequently and not behind the plate.

Yankees | Masahiro Tanaka not improving

Wed, 23 Jul 2014 15:32:35 -0700

New York Yankees SP Masahiro Tanaka (elbow) is "still feeling it" 10 days after receiving a platelet-rich plasma injection in his right elbow, according to general manager Brian Cashman.

Fantasy Tip: It's unlikely that the righty will return within the next month, and he may not pitch again in 2014. Tommy John surgery -- which would cost him much, if not all, of 2015 -- also looms as a possibility.

Yankees | CC Sabathia undergoes surgery

Wed, 23 Jul 2014 15:03:55 -0700

New York Yankees SP CC Sabathia (knee) underwent arthroscopic debridement surgery on his right knee Wednesday, July 23. The southpaw will miss the rest of the 2014 season and aims to be ready for spring training 2015.

Fantasy Tip: His performance before the injury is enough to say he may not be draftable in many mixed leagues next year. We'll have more to say as we inch into next year.

Yankees | Brian McCann adjusting to first base

Wed, 23 Jul 2014 15:02:47 -0700

New York Yankees C Brian McCann is adjusting to playing first base. He's lined up there the last two games as Mark Teixeira (lat) remains sidelined. McCann said he has enjoyed the physical break from catching.

Fantasy Tip: He's heating up at the plate, too, so the break from crouching and his ability to stay in the lineup make for a fine combo of positive fantasy developments.

Yankees | Michael Pineda update

Wed, 23 Jul 2014 14:15:47 -0700

New York Yankees SP Michael Pineda (shoulder) is scheduled to throw two innings in a simulated game Thursday, July 24, probably topping out at 30 pitches.

Fantasy Tip: Pineda isn't likely to come back until September, so maybe it's worth stashing him in deep leagues. Don't hold your breath, though, given his recent history.

Yankees | Kelly Johnson placed on DL

Wed, 23 Jul 2014 10:55:16 -0700

The New York Yankees have placed 3B Kelly Johnson (groin) on the 15-day disabled list because of a strained groin and have recalled P Chris Leroux from Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre. The team also designated P Bruce Billings for assignment.

Fantasy Tip: Chase Headley likely will receive most of the playing time while Johnson is out of the lineup and should have value in AL-only and deeper mixed leagues.

Tue, 22 Jul 2014 21:19:00 -0700

Yankees | Brian McCann rebounding

Tue, 22 Jul 2014 11:17:09 -0700

New York Yankees C Brian McCann is hitting .310 since June 27, when hitting coach Kevin Long helped McCann eliminate the toe tap from his swing. McCann was batting .223 through his first 70 contests.

Fantasy Tip: If you can still buy McCann from a frustrated owner, go for it. His slow start looks like history now, and when you can find a catcher with this hot streak, it's worth your attention.

Yankees | Acquire Chase Headley

Tue, 22 Jul 2014 10:12:58 -0700

The New York Yankees acquired 3B Chase Headley from the San Diego Padres in exchange for INF Yangervis Solarte and SP Rafael De Paula. San Diego also will send $1 million to New York.

Fantasy Tip: This is a big move for Headley, who becomes a top crossover FAAB candidate for AL-only players. He's rebounded a bit of late, and moving to the Bronx, a hitter's haven, should bode well for the rest of his second half. Solarte can be added in NL-only games but doesn't hold much upside, especially at PETCO Park. De Paula is a prospect to watch in the coming years but not necessarily stashable outside of full-team dynasty formats.

Yankees | Close to acquiring Chase Headley

Tue, 22 Jul 2014 10:05:38 -0700

San Diego Padres 3B Chase Headley is on the verge of joining the New York Yankees.

Fantasy Tip: We'll keep you posted on whether this is finalized, but if it does, Headley is about to become an expensive target for AL-only FAAB miners.

Yankees | Mark Teixeira out a few days

Mon, 21 Jul 2014 12:55:20 -0700

New York Yankees 1B Mark Teixeira (lat) is expected to miss three to four days because of a mild lat strain, according to manager Joe Girardi. Teixeira is not expected to go on the 15-day disabled list at this point.

Fantasy Tip: Owners in all leagues likely can keep Teixeira on the bench for the entire week and hope he will be able to rejoin the lineup next week.

Yankees | Cliff Lee can block trade

Mon, 21 Jul 2014 11:46:32 -0700

Philadelphia Phillies SP Cliff Lee will be able to block a trade to the New York Yankees, because the Yankees are one of the teams on his no-trade list.

Yankees | Brandon McCarthy earns first win with team

Sat, 19 Jul 2014 15:49:42 -0700

New York Yankees SP Brandon McCarthy picked up his first win with the team Saturday, July 19, allowing one run and striking out nine in six innings of work.

Fantasy Tip: McCarthy has now allowed just two earned runs in 12 2/3 innings since joining the Yankees, and he is worth a trial run if you need pitching help, especially in deeper leagues and AL-only formats.
