Fantasy Tip: Daily fantasy owners know the drill by now. The oft-injured veteran has been in and out of the lineup. Reserve him until he is able to play back-to-back games without any setbacks.

New York Yankees SP Masahiro Tanaka (elbow) threw 35 pitches during a bullpen session Wednesday, Aug. 20, and indicated everything feels fine. He threw fastballs, curveballs, changeups and splitters during the session. His next step is expected to be live batting practice then a simulated game.
Fantasy Tip: Tanaka appears to be making good progress in his rehab and could pitch again this season. Owners should continue to hold onto him in case he is able to make a few starts before the end of the season.

The New York Yankees have scratched OF Carlos Beltran (elbow) from the starting lineup Wednesday, Aug. 20, because Beltran felt something in his elbow while taking a swing Tuesday, Aug. 19. Manager Joe Girardi said he hopes Beltran will only be out a day or two.
Fantasy Tip: Owners will need to monitor the situation to see if Beltran will need to go on the disabled list because of the injury. Beltran should be kept on the bench until there is a better timetable for his return.

Fantasy Tip: There is a sliver of hope for Tanaka to avoid Tommy John surgery for now. Keep him on your DL and hope he returns.

New York Yankees OF Jacoby Ellsbury posted a three-hit night against the Houston Astros Tuesday, Aug. 19. He was 10-for-24 in the previous homestand, and he is now hitting .464 over the past eight games at home. Overall, he is hitting .328 at home and just .232 on the road.
Fantasy Tip: Strike while the iron is hot. Ellsbury has been on fire lately, and his production has been exceeding his salary figure in daily fantasy leagues.

New York Yankees C Brian McCann homered Tuesday, Aug. 19, against the Houston Astros. It was his 12th homer at home, while he has managed just two in 51 road games. He has hit three homers over his past four games.

New York Yankees P David Phelps (elbow) could pitch out of the bullpen when he returns, according to manager Joe Girardi. Girardi noted pitching out of the bullpen would allow Phelps to return sooner.
Fantasy Tip: Pitching out of the bullpen would eliminate Phelps' value in the majority of formats.

Fantasy Tip: At age 39, A-Rod would still be fantasy relevant. However, he'd be in the middle of the pack at third base, best used in a CI spot.
