New York Yankees SP Luis Severino is 2-2 with a 2.17 ERA this season, and the Yankees have scored just once in each of his losses. It's conceivable that Severino would be included in the rotation for a playoff divisional series if the Yankees make the playoffs, with SPs Ivan Nova and CC Sabathia on the outside looking in. Severino's inning are under control, so he'd likely be able to make starts in the playoffs. He has gone six innings in each of his last four starts, and the Yankees aren't putting any limitations on him.
Fantasy Tip: Severino ($7,600, 15.2% of cap) has shown he's the real deal as the team's top pitching prospect, and there's really no reason to believe he won't continue to be valuable as your second FantasyScore pitcher when he toes the rubber.

Fantasy Tip: Tanaka ($8,400, 16.8% of cap) was unable to record his sixth consecutive quality start after running into trouble during the sixth and seventh innings but still pitched well enough to get the win. His next start will come Tuesday, Sept. 8, against the Baltimore Orioles.

Fantasy Tip: Murphy ($2,000, 4.0% of cap) doesn't have a bad line for a backup catcher (.279-1-11), but he lacks power and is a lotto ticket on FantasyScore mainly as a source of salary cap relief.

New York Yankees OF Jacoby Ellsbury is not in the lineup against Boston Red Sox left-handed SP Henry Owens Wednesday, Sept. 1. OF Chris Young will receive the start in left field, and he's batting second.
Fantasy Tip: Young ($3,400, 6.8% of cap) has cooled off at the plate lately in limited action, but he still has a .322/.385/.603 slash line with seven of his 14 home runs against lefties. Consider him when looking for value plays against a left-hander today.

Updating a previous report, New York Yankees 1B Mark Teixeira (shin) will be out at least two more weeks with a lingering bone bruise on his right shin, according to general manager Brian Cashman. More tests Monday, Aug. 31, didn't show any new damage, but Teixeira needs to be completely off of his leg for his injury to heal. He'll be on crutches for an unknown timetable, and the possibility remains that he won't play again this year. Teixeira leads the Yankees in home runs (31), RBI (79) and OPS (.905). He also received an anti-inflammatory injection.
Fantasy Tip: Don't plan on using Teixeira ($4,800, 9.6% of cap) for the rest of the season, and he's now a candidate to be dropped in most other fantasy formats since it's looking unlikely he can make much of an impact in September. Greg Bird's ($4,000, 8.0% of cap) value for the rest of the season will go up slightly, and he's a decent value target on FantasyScore for his power stroke.

New York Yankees 1B Mark Teixeira's (shin) MRI exam revealed a bone bruise that was more serious than the team initially thought, according to manager Joe Girardi. Teixeira will be on crutches for "a few days," and the team isn't ruling out his return this year.
Fantasy Tip: The good news is that Teixeira ($4,800, 9.6% of cap) doesn't have any broken bones or fractures in his leg. The bad news is he may not play much in the season's final month, meaning he'll be dead weight for his fantasy owners. It's unwise to rely on him at FantasyScore in September, even if he comes back. Greg Bird ($4,000, 8.0% of cap) should continue to see the majority of starts at first base in his absence, and he's a value play for his power in daily formats.

Fantasy Tip: Gregorius ($3,700, 7.4% of cap) has been on fire recently, going 16-for-34 (.471) with three doubles, two homers and 11 RBIs over his past five games. He has at least one RBI in five straight games to make him a must-start in FantasyScore.
Mon, 31 Aug 2015 13:03:03 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Make sure to avoid Drew ($3,200, 6.4% of cap) in all fantasy formats Monday, and light-hitting Ryan ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) shouldn't be viewed as anything more than a desperation source of cap relief at FantasyScore. After all, Ryan owns a .214/.278/.291 slash line over the past six seasons.

Fantasy Tip: Robertson would see a bit of a hike in value if he enters a playoff push. He's still a high-end closer option regardless.
Sun, 30 Aug 2015 17:57:58 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Headley ($3,600, 7.2% of cap) has had some big games this year, but most nights, there are players available at FantasyScore with more upside for the same price.
Sun, 30 Aug 2015 17:54:09 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Drew ($3,200, 6.4% of cap) has been an all-or-nothing option at FantasyScore this season, and that isn't going to change between now and the end of the year.
Sun, 30 Aug 2015 17:44:35 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Teixeira ($5,300, 10.6% of cap) should be back in the lineup sooner rather than later, but continue to check on his status before plugging him into your lineup at FantasyScore.
Sun, 30 Aug 2015 05:57:59 -0700
Fantasy Tip: It was Severino's ($7,200, 14.4% of cap) second win of the season, and the rookie owns a 2.17 ERA through his five starts. Seasonal owners should expect a hiccup or two down the stretch, but Severino has looked the part of a difference maker. He should be owned in all seasonal leagues and started with confidence in favorable matchups at FantasyScore.

New York Yankees 1B Mark Teixeira (leg) is not in the starting lineup against Atlanta Braves SP Matt Wisler Saturday, Aug. 29. 1B Greg Bird will start at first base and is batting fifth in the lineup.
Fantasy Tip: Teixeira ($5,300, 10.6% of cap) is still dealing with an injury and there is no timetable for his return. Bird ($3,700, 7.4% of cap) has one hit and one RBI in his last four games and may not be the best option for owner on FantasyScore.
Sat, 29 Aug 2015 14:43:26 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Rodriguez ($5,500, 11.0% of cap) should return to the lineup when the team plays in an American League park and will be a solid starting option.
