New York Yankees SP Chris Capuano allowed five runs and five walks while retiring just two batters in his start Tuesday, July 28, against the Texas Rangers. He is the first starter to allow at least five runs and walk five batters while lasting less than an inning since former Atlanta Braves SP Jaret Wright in 2004.
Fantasy Tip: FantasyScore players who rolled the dice on Capuano ($3,200, 6.4% of cap) are certainly displeased. Yet again, it shows that it pays not to skimp on pitching, as it makes or breaks you most days in DFS.

New York Yankees SS Brendan Ryan is starting at second base for the second straight day and is hitting ninth against Texas Rangers left-handed SP Martin Perez. 2B Stephen Drew is out for the second straight day.
Fantasy Tip: It appears as if Ryan ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) may be entering into a platoon with Drew at the keystone, with Ryan facing southpaws. Ryan provides little offensive help to his fantasy owners, and a spot at the bottom of the lineup doesn't make him attractive at all to daily gamers.

Fantasy Tip: Murphy ($1,700, 3.4% of cap) is hitting .271 (23-for-85) but has only one home run and eight RBI and has limited offensive upside. He's mainly a source of salary cap relief for the desperate at FantasyScore.
Tue, 28 Jul 2015 16:41:12 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Young ($3,000, 6.0% of cap), who sports a triple slash line of .362/.413/.670 with six of his 11 home runs against left-handers, should always be in play as a FantasyScore value play when he's in the lineup against a lefty.
Tue, 28 Jul 2015 16:34:21 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Ellsbury ($4,600, 9.2% of cap) doesn't hit as well against lefties (.247/.326/.312) with one of his three home runs, but he still remains an attractive daily option in the leadoff position. Play him at your own risk tonight against the southpaw Perez.

New York Yankees SP Chris Capuano is making the start against the Texas Rangers Tuesday, July 28, in order to give extra rest to SPs Masahiro Tanaka and Michael Pineda. It will be Capuano's first start since May 29. He's 0-4 with a 5.64 ERA this year. He was 0-3 with a 6.39 ERA in three May starts before moving to the bullpen.
Fantasy Tip: Given Capuano's ineffectiveness as a starter for the Yankees this year, you should avoid him everywhere in this spot start.

New York Yankees SS Didi Gregorius went 3-for-4 with a home run and a career-high four RBI against the Texas Rangers Monday, July 27, and he is 11-for-31 with four home runs and 11 RBI against the Rangers in his career.
Fantasy Tip: Don't overlook the fact that Gregorius ($3,000, 6.0% of cap) is hitting only .248 (76-for-306) with five home runs and 25 RBI on the season. He's batting just .203 (16-for-79) with one of his five homers against lefties this year, too, so consider him a weak play tonight against a southpaw.
Tue, 28 Jul 2015 13:31:26 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Rodriguez ($5,800, 11.6% of cap) continues his fine season after sitting out all of 2014. A-Rod has a 1.030 OPS with nine of his 24 home runs against left-handers this year, making him a fine pick on FantasyScore tonight against Texas Rangers lefty Martin Perez.

San Diego Padres RP Craig Kimbrel has come up in trade talks with the New York Yankees. The Yankees have no intentions of trading SP Luis Severino, OF Aaron Judge, 1B Greg Bird or SS Jorge Mateo in any trades. A person familiar with the Padres' thinking believes the Yankees would have to change that stance for any deal to happen.
Fantasy Tip: The Yanks already have a lights-out bullpen, so this trade would be a bit peculiar. If Kimbrel lands with the Yanks, he'd be expected to close for them, basically ruining much of Andrew Miller's fantasy value. In San Diego, either Joaquin Benoit or Brandon Maurer could be used in the ninth inning for saves.

New York Yankees SP Ivan Nova (arm) was lifted early from his start Monday, July 27, against the Texas Rangers due to arm fatigue. Manager Joe Girardi said Nova "was a little bit tired," and the pitcher reported "arm fatigue."
Fantasy Tip: Avoid Nova ($5,300, 10.6% of cap) in FantasyScore until he can officially return and prove his health in a full game without any setbacks.
Mon, 27 Jul 2015 16:38:44 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Ryan ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) is a light-hitting utility infielder for the Bronx Bombers, and he should be avoided unless you're desperate for some salary cap relief on FantasyScore.

New York Yankees OF Jacoby Ellsbury (shoulder) is not in the starting lineup Monday, July 27. OF Chris Young is starting in left field and hitting second against Texas Rangers left-handed SP Matt Harrison.
Fantasy Tip: Young ($3,000, 6.0% of cap) is about one of the most attractive value plays tonight on FantasyScore, especially with a smaller slate of games. Young sports a slash line of .374/.430/.692 with a 1.122 OPS and six of his 11 home runs against left-handers this year. Despite a good outing in his last start, it'll be Harrison's third start this year.

Fantasy Tip: Ellsbury ($4,600, 9.2% of cap) is hitting only .213 this month but does have two home runs and nine RBI during that span. Ellsbury could be a solid starting option for owners on FantasyScore when he is in the lineup.
Mon, 27 Jul 2015 14:25:01 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Fielder ($5,800, 11.6% of cap) has played very well this season with .337 batting average and 15 home runs. Fielder should be a nightly starting option for owners on FantasyScore.
Sun, 26 Jul 2015 16:10:55 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Headley ($3,600, 7.2% of cap) has hit safely in nine of his last 10 games and has 10 RBI during the stretch. He could be worth a look as a source of cap relief at FantasyScore while he is swinging a hot bat.
