Yankees | Joe Girardi considering six-man rotation

Wed, 25 May 2016 21:31:16 -0700

With the New York Yankees in the midst of a stretch of 40 games in 41 days, manager Joe Girardi indicated he would consider going with a six-man rotation when SP Luis Severino (triceps) is ready to return from the disabled list. "I think at some point, we'll consider injecting a sixth man in there," Girardi said. "I can't tell you at what point. It depends on how hard your starters have worked, what they look like, how they feel. But at some point, we would do it."

Fantasy Tip: It's no secret New York's rotation is filled with durability risks, so lightening the load during such an intensive stretch of games makes sense. Plus, it would help them sort of which five should start going forward. Each pitcher would stand to lose one or two starts over a 40-game stretch, so the impact would be negligible.

Yankees | Luis Severino to make rehab start

Wed, 25 May 2016 21:24:08 -0700

New York Yankees SP Luis Severino (triceps) is scheduled to make his first rehab start on Saturday, May 28, for Class A Tampa.

Fantasy Tip: The hard-throwing righty was all kinds of awful prior to going on the DL, and solid pitching from CC Sabathia and Ivan Nova have clouded Severino's immediate future. Don't be too quick to cut bait on Severino, however, given his upside and durability concerns for several of New York's current starters.

Yankees | Ivan Nova less than super in loss

Wed, 25 May 2016 21:02:24 -0700

New York Yankees SP Ivan Nova took the loss against the Toronto Blue Jays on Wednesday, May 25. He allowed four runs on seven hits over 6 2/3 innings and struck out eight. It was his first loss in four starts since joining the rotation earlier in May.

Fantasy Tip: Despite the loss there were some silver linings for Nova. He worked deeper into the game and threw a season-high 107 pitches, and the eight strikeouts matched his total from his first three starts combined. While he was never a big strikeout arm, Nova could up his fantasy profile by getting closer to his career mark of 6.57 K/9 as opposed to this year's 4.45 mark.

Yankees | Mark Teixeira to get cortisone shot

Wed, 25 May 2016 19:42:46 -0700

New York Yankees 1B Mark Teixeira (neck) is scheduled to receive a cortisone shot to alleviate the pain caused by neck spasms. The team does not believe the injury is serious enough to warrant a stint on the disabled list, according to manager Joe Girardi.

Fantasy Tip: Texeira is batting just .195 with three home runs and 12 RBI through 42 games this season. Given his lengthy injury history and lack of production this year, he can probably be let go in most mixed fantasy leagues.

Yankees | Gary Sanchez has cracked thumb

Wed, 25 May 2016 15:56:21 -0700

Updating a previous report, New York Yankees C Gary Sanchez (thumb) was diagnosed with a cracked right thumb. He will test his hand and then be re-evaluated with an X-ray in two weeks.

Fantasy Tip: Unfortunately for the Yanks, it looks like one of their top overall prospects will be out for a while. Sanchez set a career high in home runs in the minors last year and is poised to be New York's catcher of the future with elite and raw power at the plate. You'll need to temper your expectations if you were already stashing him in dynasty leagues, as he may not be a realistic option in the bigs leagues again until 2017.

Yankees | Gary Sanchez could be out a while

Wed, 25 May 2016 15:37:04 -0700

New York Yankees C Gary Sanchez (thumb), the team's No. 3 prospect, could be dealing with a fractured right thumb. He is being sent to New York for tests.

Fantasy Tip: This would be a big blow to the Yankees' organizational depth at catcher. Sanchez was hitting .290 with six home runs and 26 RBI for Class AAA Scranton/Wilkes-Barre this year and is New York's catcher of the future. He has plus power that will play nicely in the Bronx. Keep tabs on him in keeper/dynasty formats, and he's worth stashing in those leagues unless his injury turns out to sideline him for a long chunk of time.

Yankees | Mark Teixeira's injury a concern?

Wed, 25 May 2016 15:32:21 -0700

New York Yankees 1B Mark Teixeira's (neck) neck spasms are a cause for concern with manager Joe Girardi. Teixeira had an MRI exam Tuesday, May 24, and the team is waiting for the results.

Fantasy Tip: Tex's neck problems combined with his ugly .195/.294/.282 slash line and three home runs mean he probably should be dumped to the waiver wire in most mixed leagues. If you're forced to hang on, keep him benched until he's healthy enough to return or shows signs of life. Dustin Ackley is the main backup at first base and could gain significant value in cavernous mixed and AL-only leagues as corner infield depth if Teixeira is forced to go on the DL.

Yankees | Alex Rodriguez ready to return Thursday

Wed, 25 May 2016 13:09:38 -0700

New York Yankees DH Alex Rodriguez (hamstring) is expected to be activated from the disabled list and play against the Toronto Blue Jays Thursday, May 26.

Fantasy Tip: Rodriguez is worth owning in the majority of seasonal leagues, and he did hit 33 home runs last season, but you'll want to keep your expectations in check with the 40-year-old veteran. It might be best to take a wait-and-see approach since he posted an underwhelming .194/.275/.444 slash line through 80 plate appearances before the injury.

Yankees | Mark Teixeira out with a neck injury

Wed, 25 May 2016 13:01:39 -0700

New York Yankees 1B Mark Teixeira (neck) is not in the starting lineup Wednesday, May 25, and manager Joe Girardi said there is no timetable for Teixeira's return, but that the first baseman will visit with the team doctor Wednesday. 2B Dustin Ackley is starting at first base and batting sixth against Toronto Blue Jays SP Marco Estrada Wednesday.

Fantasy Tip: Teixeira is off to a miserable start to 2016 with just three home runs and a .195/.294/.282 slash line. It isn't out of the question to move on from the 36-year-old veteran in most mixed leagues given his lengthy injury history. View Ackley as a low-priced flier in daily contests Wednesday.

Blue Jays | Troy Tulowitzki out vs. Yankees

Wed, 25 May 2016 12:55:29 -0700

Toronto Blue Jays SS Troy Tulowitzki (quadriceps) is not in the starting lineup Wednesday, May 25. 2B Ryan Goins is starting at shortstop and batting ninth against New York Yankees SP Ivan Nova Wednesday.

Fantasy Tip: Tulowitzki exited the game with a quadriceps injury Tuesday, May 24, so this might just be a precautionary day off, but you'll want to check back for updates. With Devon Travis back in the mix, Goins will return to a bench role, which limits his fantasy value to daily contests, and he is nothing more than a low-priced flier Wednesday.

Blue Jays | Devon Travis hitting eighth vs. Yankees

Wed, 25 May 2016 12:42:58 -0700

Updating a previous report, Toronto Blue Jays 2B Devon Travis (shoulder) is starting at second base and batting eighth against New York Yankees Ivan Nova Wednesday, May 25.

Fantasy Tip: Travis should be owned in all seasonal leagues, after he posted a .304/.361/.498 slash line through 238 plate appearances last season. He could find himself hitting higher up in the lineup at some point, but for now, fantasy owners should just be happy he is healthy and back with the big club. Don't shy away from inserting Travis into your starting lineups immediately.

Yankees | Nathan Eovaldi has solid outing

Tue, 24 May 2016 20:53:27 -0700

New York Yankees SP Nathan Eovaldi pitched six scoreless innings against the Toronto Blue Jays Tuesday, May 24, to pick up his fifth win of the season. He allowed two hits during the game, while striking out five batters and walking three.

Fantasy Tip: Eovaldi has pitched well recently and has allowed only six runs over his last four starts. He is scheduled to face the Tampa Bay Rays in his next start and should be a decent starting option in most fantasy leagues.

Yankees | Carlos Beltran homers Tuesday

Tue, 24 May 2016 20:42:35 -0700

New York Yankees OF Carlos Beltran went 1-for-3 with one home run and two RBI against the Toronto Blue Jays Tuesday, May 24.

Fantasy Tip: Beltran has been on a hot streak recently with 11 hits and 10 RBI over his last six games. Beltran will continue to be an everyday player for the Yankees and should be a starting option in all fantasy leagues.

Yankees | Brian McCann sitting out

Tue, 24 May 2016 12:36:58 -0700

New York Yankees C Brian McCann is not in the starting lineup Tuesday, May 24. C Austin Romine is starting and is batting ninth against Toronto Blue Jays SP R.A. Dickey.

Fantasy Tip: Romine isn't a very attractive catching option in daily leagues, especially hitting at the very bottom of the batting order. He's hitting .250 and has no home runs and three RBI in 40 at-bats as the Yankees backup catcher.

Yankees | A-Rod begins rehab assignment

Tue, 24 May 2016 08:11:05 -0700

New York Yankees 3B Alex Rodriguez (hamstring) will begin a rehab assignment at Class AA Trenton Tuesday, May 24.

Fantasy Tip: It could only be a couple of games before he's ready to return. He was struggling before he got hurt so give him a couple of days upon returning before putting him into lineups.
