Yankees | Alex Rodriguez drives in four

Sun, 01 May 2016 20:48:39 -0700

New York Yankees 1B Alex Rodriguez went 2-for-4 with a home run, a double, four RBI and two runs scored in an 8-7 loss to the Boston Red Sox Sunday, May 1.

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.

Yankees | Brian McCann not starting Sunday

Sun, 01 May 2016 16:04:31 -0700

New York Yankees C Brian McCann will not start the Sunday, May 1, game against the Boston Red Sox. C Austin Romine is starting and hitting ninth against Red Sox SP David Price.

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.

Yankees | Didi Gregorius out Sunday

Sun, 01 May 2016 16:01:42 -0700

New York Yankees SS Didi Gregorius is not starting Sunday, May 1, against the Boston Red Sox. SS Ronald Torreyes is in the lineup and will bat eighth against Red Sox SP David Price.

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.

Yankees | Carlos Beltran not playing Sunday

Sun, 01 May 2016 15:56:37 -0700

New York Yankees OF Carlos Beltran is not in the lineup Sunday, May 1, against the Boston Red Sox. OF Aaron Hicks is batting seventh against Red Sox SP David Price.

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.

Yankees | Michael Pineda slightly better

Sat, 30 Apr 2016 23:10:00 -0700

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.

Yankees | Masahiro Tanaka hurls quality start

Fri, 29 Apr 2016 19:44:29 -0700

New York Yankees SP Masahiro Tanaka allowed two runs on six hits over 6 2/3 innings in a no-decision against the Boston Red Sox Friday, April 29, with no walks and five strikeouts.

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.

Yankees | CC Sabathia solid in setback

Wed, 27 Apr 2016 23:58:39 -0700

New York Yankees SP CC Sabathia allowed three earned runs, five hits and three walks with five strikeouts over six innings in a quality start and loss against the Texas Rangers Wednesday, April 27.

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.

Yankees | Alex Rodriguez provides the offense

Wed, 27 Apr 2016 23:57:55 -0700

New York Yankees DH Alex Rodriguez went 3-for-3 with a double, walk and solo home run Wednesday, April 27, against the Texas Rangers.

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.

Yankees | Aaron Hicks available Wednesday

Wed, 27 Apr 2016 17:23:16 -0700

New York Yankees manager Joe Girardi said OF Aaron Hicks (shoulder) is available to be used as a pinch hitter Wednesday, April 27, against the Texas Rangers.

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.

Yankees | No Didi Gregorius Wednesday

Wed, 27 Apr 2016 14:39:52 -0700

New York Yankees SS Didi Gregorius is not in the starting lineup against Texas Rangers left-handed SP Martin Perez Wednesday, April 27. 2B Ronald Torreyes is starting at the 6 and is hitting ninth.

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.

Yankees | Alex Rodriguez returns Wednesday

Wed, 27 Apr 2016 14:35:26 -0700

New York Yankees 3B Alex Rodriguez (oblique) is back in the starting lineup and is hitting fifth against Texas Rangers SP Martin Perez Wednesday, April 27.

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.

Yankees | Luis Severino struggles

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.

Yankees | Chase Headley not in lineup

Tue, 26 Apr 2016 15:15:38 -0700

New York Yankees 3B Chase Headley (rest) is not in the starting lineup Tuesday, April 26, opposite Texas Rangers SP A.J. Griffin. 3B Ronald Torreyes gets the start in his place.

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.

Yankees | Alex Rodriguez out again

Tue, 26 Apr 2016 15:14:42 -0700

New York Yankees 3B Alex Rodriguez (oblique) is not in the starting lineup Tuesday, April 26, versus Texas Rangers SP A.J. Griffin.

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.

Yankees | Alex Rodriguez feeling better

Tue, 26 Apr 2016 14:18:06 -0700

New York Yankees 3B Alex Rodriguez (oblique) is "hopeful" that he can be back in the lineup soon and he feels "better than yesterday." He also said he took 25 swings off a tee Monday, April 25, and felt pretty good.

Fantasy Tip: A-Rod hasn't played since Sunday, but he's been a liability for fantasy teams based on his performance thus far. In fact, while he's got two home runs and six RBI, he's hitting just .145/.242/.273 in his 15 games. He's far off from the renaissance season he experienced a year ago but he should get going at some point. Dustin Ackley stands to be the biggest beneficiary while Rodriguez is sidelined.
