Yankees | Chris Young could start Sunday

Sat, 25 Apr 2015 16:08:33 -0700

New York Yankees OF Chris Young could start in the outfield Sunday, April 26, against the New York Mets. Young may be required to fill in for OF Jacoby Ellsbury (hip) who left Saturday's game after feeling tightness in his hip. Manager Joe Girardi did say he hopes Ellsbury will be able to play Sunday.

Fantasy Tip: Young ($2,200, 4.4% of cap) is tearing it up at the plate to begin the 2015 season. A .235 hitter for his career, Young is currently hitting for a .357 batting average with four home runs in 48 plate appearances. If Young is able to draw another start, he'll be an excellent FantasyScore option.

Yankees | Jacoby Ellsbury left game

Sat, 25 Apr 2015 16:07:20 -0700

New York Yankees OF Jacoby Ellsbury (hip) left the game Saturday, April 25, against the New York Mets, after feeling tightness in his hip. Manager Joe Girardi said he hopes Ellsbury will be able to play Sunday, April 26.

Fantasy Tip: It's the first injury scare of the season for Ellsbury ($5,200, 10.4% of cap). Ellsbury has begun the season hitting .294, with one home run and four stolen bases. If Ellsbury has to miss any time, look for Chris Young ($2,200, 4.4% of cap) to get starts in the outfield.

Yankees | Carlos Beltran struggling at the plate

Fri, 24 Apr 2015 19:09:40 -0700

New York Yankees OF Carlos Beltran went 0-for-3 in a 6-1 win over the New York Mets Friday, April 24, and he has gone hitless in three of his last four games, dropping his average to .173.

Fantasy Tip: In addition to the horrible batting average, Beltran ($2,800, 5.6% of cap) has no home runs and a pitiful .288 slugging percentage. Whether he is simply declining because of his age or offseason elbow surgery is taking a toll, Beltran should be avoided at FantasyScore for the time being.

Yankees | Mark Teixeira finding power stroke early

Fri, 24 Apr 2015 18:58:51 -0700

New York Yankees 1B Mark Teixeira went 2-for-4 with two home runs and four RBIs in a 6-1 win over the New York Mets Friday, April 24, and he has a career-high seven home runs in April.

Fantasy Tip: Teixeira ($2,700, 5.4% of cap) has four homers in his last five games, and while his batting average remains a dismal .218, he could still make a solid source of cap relief at FantasyScore while he has his power stroke working.

Yankees | Masahiro Tanaka throwing harder?

Thu, 23 Apr 2015 16:04:54 -0700

New York Yankees SP Masahiro Tanaka's velocity on his fastballs are down from 2014 as he pitches with a partially torn ulnar collateral ligament in his elbow. However, he hit 94 mph on his four-seam heater and 93 mph on his two-seamer in his outing against the Detroit Tigers Thursday, April 23, in a temperature of 33 degrees. He's also slowly balancing is four- and two-seam fastball usage.

Fantasy Tip: Tanaka ($7,500, 15.0% of cap) has progressively gotten better in April after a rough season opener April 6 against the Toronto Blue Jays, and increased zip and life on his fastballs is encouraging. Keep a close eye on his progress early in the season as he pitches through his injury, and he'll likely continue to be a matchup play at FantasyScore.

Yankees | Chris Young in Thursday lineup

Thu, 23 Apr 2015 09:32:50 -0700

New York Yankees OF Chris Young is in lineup Thursday, April 23, against the Detroit Tigers.

Fantasy Tip: CY ($3,000, 6.0% of your cap) is off to a fast start with his .368-4-9 line. He's a nice low-end flyer on FantasyScore.

Yankees | Alex Rodriguez out of lineup

Thu, 23 Apr 2015 09:32:13 -0700

New York Yankees DH Alex Rodriguez is out of the lineup Thursday, April 23, against the Detroit Tigers.

Fantasy Tip: Chris Young ($3,000, 6.0% of your cap) is in right with Carlos Beltran at DH. Young is a great low-end flyer on FantasyScore with his .368-4-9 line.

Yankees | Mark Teixeira out Thursday

Thu, 23 Apr 2015 09:31:41 -0700

New York Yankees 1B Mark Teixeira is out of the lineup Thursday, April 23, against the Detroit Tigers. 1B Garrett Jones is in at first.

Fantasy Tip: Jones ($2,100, 4.2% of your cap) could eventually have spot-start appeal on FantasyScore, but not right now.

Yankees | Mark Teixeira up to five homers

Wed, 22 Apr 2015 22:32:20 -0700

New York Yankees 1B Mark Teixeira had a three-run home run Wednesday, April 22, against the Detroit Tigers, his fifth homer of the season.

Fantasy Tip: Teixeira is hitting just .204, but he has five home runs and 13 RBIs to look like his former self. At just $2,700 (or 5.4% of cap) he is a cheap source of power for FantasyScore players.

Yankees | Chris Capuano makes rehab start

Wed, 22 Apr 2015 22:31:48 -0700

New York Yankees SP Chris Capuano (quadriceps) worked two hitless innings in an extended spring game start Wednesday, April 22. "No problems," Capuano said. "A little rusty with the pitches." He threw 18 of his 24 pitches for strikes.

Fantasy Tip: Capuano is expected to return in mid-May, and his role is yet to be determined. He might work in the rotation or he could be used in long relief. FantasyScore owners need to avoid him until his role becomes more clear.

Yankees | David Price has been owned by Yanks duo

Wed, 22 Apr 2015 15:13:03 -0700

New York Yankees C Brian McCann and OF Jacoby Ellsbury have gone 7-for-14 with three home runs and 16-for-49 with a home run, four doubles and two triples, respectively, against Detroit Tigers SP David Price. Price is pitching against the Yankees Wednesday, April 22.

Fantasy Tip: Over analyzing past batter vs. pitcher statistics can be costly, especially with Price looking dialed in to start the season. Price has allowed a single earned run through 22 1/3 innings thus far. It might not be the best night to overvalue Ellsbury ($5,200, 10.4% of cap) and McCann ($4,200, 8.4% of cap) based on their previous success against Price, especially at their cap hits.

Yankees | Alex Rodriguez struggles vs. David Price

Wed, 22 Apr 2015 15:08:09 -0700

New York Yankees 3B Alex Rodriguez has struck out 17 times in 43 at-bats against Detroit Tigers SP David Price. Price is pitching against the Yankees Wednesday, April 22.

Fantasy Tip: With Rodriguez's ($2,600, 5.2% of cap) lack of success against Price, it might not be the best time to utilize him in FantasyScore contests Wednesday, especially with him in a 1-for-13 drought at the dish.

Yankees | Chris Young hitting second

Wed, 22 Apr 2015 13:18:05 -0700

New York Yankees OF Chris Young is batting second against the Detroit Tigers Wednesday, April 22.

Fantasy Tip: Young ($2,200, 4.4% of cap) is off to a fantastic start this season with four home runs and a .344/.432/.844 slash line through his first 32 at-bats. However, opposing pitcher David Price has been lights out through his first three starts. Due to the tough matchup, view Young as a low-priced flier for FantasyScore contests Wednesday. In favorable matchups, he is a nice value play, though.

Yankees | Nathan Eovaldi makes change to motion

Wed, 22 Apr 2015 12:27:49 -0700

New York Yankees SP Nathan Eovaldi made a small adjustment to his pitching motion which allowed him to hold the Detroit Tigers to one run Tuesday, April 21. Pitching coach Larry Rothschild had Eovaldi keep his right arm closer to his body as he brought his arm back on his delivery. The adjustment helped the precision of his pitches.

Fantasy Tip: Eovaldi ($4,100, 4.2% of cap) has pitched pretty well so far this season and has struck out 14 batters in 17 1/3 innings over three starts. He is scheduled to pitch against the New York Mets in his next start, which could be a tough matchup since they rank in the top 10 in runs scored and batting average.

Yankees | Carlos Beltran not in lineup Tuesday

Tue, 21 Apr 2015 13:39:10 -0700

New York Yankees OF Carlos Beltran is not in the lineup Tuesday, April 21, against the Detroit Tigers. OF Chris Young is batting instead.

Fantasy Tip: With the Tigers starting Kyle Lobstein on the mound, Beltran ($2,800, 5.6% of cap) gets the night off. Young ($2,200, 4.4% of cap) is 7-for-28 with three homers in his past 10 games, so he is a decent low-cost replacement.
