Yankees | Slade Heathcott hits first homer

Mon, 25 May 2015 18:23:47 -0700

New York Yankees OF Slade Heathcott went 2-for-5 with a home run, two RBIs and two runs scored in a 14-1 win over the Kansas City Royals Monday, May 25.

Fantasy Tip: It was Heathcott's first home run, and although the sample size is small, he is hitting .417 with three runs scored and three RBIs in four games. When he is added to the player pool at FantasyScore, he could be worth checking out.

Yankees | Carlos Beltran on the bench

Mon, 25 May 2015 09:00:15 -0700

New York Yankees OF Carlos Beltran is not in the starting lineup Monday, May 25. OF Garrett Jones will be the starting right fielder for the Yankees.

Fantasy Tip: Beltran ($3,300, 6.6% of cap) is receiving his second day off but should return soon. Jones ($2,100, 4.2% of cap) has picked up four hits and three RBI in his last three games. Owners on FantasyScore could consider using Jones but may want to spend a little extra money for a better option.

Yankees | Brian McCann will play Monday

Mon, 25 May 2015 08:50:51 -0700

New York Yankees C Brian McCann (foot) is in the starting lineup Monday, May 25.

Fantasy Tip: McCann ($4,500, 9.0% of cap) left the last game because of a foot injury, but it looks like it was a minor injury. He has seen his batting average drop this season but has recorded at least one hit in 11 of his last 13 games. Owners on FantasyScore can consider using McCann in their starting lineups.

Yankees | Brian McCann injured

Mon, 25 May 2015 02:21:16 -0700

New York Yankees C Brian McCann (foot) left the gane against the Texas Rangers on Sunday, May 24, due to a cramp in his foot and calf. Manager Joe Girardi told media he would have more details on Monday, May 25.

Fantasy Tip: McCann ($4,500, 9.0% of cap) has had a tendency to be brittle in his New York years. Wait for more details on his condition before deciding what you do with him.

Yankees | CC Sabathia awful at Yankee Stadium

Sat, 23 May 2015 13:10:46 -0700

New York Yankees SP CC Sabathia is now 0-6 with a 9.42 ERA in his last six starts at Yankee Stadium, dating back to the beginning of 2014, following his loss Saturday, May 23, against the Texas Rangers.

Fantasy Tip: Sabathia ($3,900, 7.8% of cap) surrendered seven hits, one walk and six earned runs in two and a third innings Saturday. Sabathia has allowed at least four earned runs in five of his nine starts this season. Sabathia's next start is scheduled for Thursday, May 28, in Oakland. With Sabathia's strongest outings of the season having come on the road, he'll be a sneaky GPP play on FantasyScore, with the majority of owners staying away from him after this disaster.

Yankees | Brian McCann sitting out

Sat, 23 May 2015 07:22:48 -0700

New York Yankees C Brian McCann is not in the starting lineup Saturday, May 23. C J.R. Murphy will be the starting catcher for the Yankees.

Fantasy Tip: McCann ($4,500, 9.0% of cap) likely is just receive a day off after playing the last few games. Murphy ($1,900, 3.8% of cap) has seen only limited playing time this season and is not a great option for owners on FantasyScore.

Yankees | Masahiro Tanaka to rehab Wednesday

Fri, 22 May 2015 13:48:54 -0700

New York Yankees SP Masahiro Tanaka (forearm, wrist) will make a rehab start with Class AAA Scranton/Wilkes-Barre Wednesday, May 27, and throw 65 pitches, according to manager Joe Girardi. Tanaka could return to the Yankees rotation after that outing.

Fantasy Tip: Tanaka ($7,800, 15.6% of cap) will immediately return to the rotation for the Yanks. But remember, he's also pitching with a partially torn ulnar collateral ligament in his right elbow, and he'll continue to be a risk/reward FantasyScore pitching option. He's likely to replace Chris Capuano ($3,200, 6.4% of cap) in the rotation.

Yankees | Slade Heathcott in lineup Friday

Fri, 22 May 2015 12:37:37 -0700

New York Yankees OF Slade Heathcott is in the starting lineup Friday, May 22, and is batting ninth against the Texas Rangers.

Fantasy Tip: Heathcott is likely batting because the Rangers have a righty on the mound in Colby Lewis. Wait one or two games to see how overmatched (or not) Heathcott is at the plate against MLB pitching.

Yankees | Masahiro Tanaka solid in rehab start

Thu, 21 May 2015 19:23:20 -0700

New York Yankees SP Masahiro Tanaka (forearm, wrist) threw three scoreless innings in his first rehab start for Class AAA Scranton/Wilkes-Barre Thursday, May 21. "I felt pretty good out there," Tanaka said. "I was able to use all of my pitches, and I felt good. I feel confident in all of the pitches that I threw."

Fantasy Tip: An exact timetable for his return is still unclear, but the news is encouraging for Tanaka ($7,800, 15.6% of cap). He will make a few more rehab starts and could return to the rotation after that. Continue to hold on to him if you own him in seasonal leagues.

Yankees | Slade Heathcott set for plenty of at-bats

Wed, 20 May 2015 16:31:24 -0700

New York Yankees OF Slade Heathcott is expected to play a lot against right-handed pitchers with OF Jacoby Ellsbury (knee) on the disabled list.

Fantasy Tip: Heathcott is worth a speculative add in AL-only and cavernous mixed leagues, although, he has only played 37 game above Class AA. He was just recalled to the Yankee Wednesday, May 20, so take a wait-and-see approach in all other fantasy formats, including FantasyScore.

Yankees | Jacoby Ellsbury won't require surgery

Wed, 20 May 2015 15:56:11 -0700

Updating a previous report, New York Yankees OF Jacoby Ellsbury's (knee) sprained right knee ligament will not require surgery, the team announced. There is still no timeline for his return, though.

Fantasy Tip: Ellsbury is expected to meet with the team doctor Friday, May 22, so there will likely be more specifics available then. Chris Young ($3,200, 6.4% of cap) projects to receive the most substantial fantasy boost in the short term, and he is especially dangerous against left-handed hurlers (1.230 OPS through 46 plate appearances this season). FantasyScore players should take note. It sounds like fantasy owners shouldn't be surprised if they're without Ellsbury for awhile.

Yankees | Jacoby Ellsbury will see doctor Friday

Wed, 20 May 2015 14:26:46 -0700

Updating a previous report, New York Yankees OF Jacoby Ellsbury (knee) will meet with the team doctor Friday, May 22. Ellsbury hopes to not need more than 15 days on the disabled list.

Fantasy Tip: Chris Young ($3,200, 6.4% of cap) will receive a playing time and fantasy value boost during Ellsbury's absence, and FantasyScore players should note Young is especially dangerous against southpaws (1.230 OPS through 46 plate appearances this season). Continue to check back for updates on Ellsbury's status and a return timetable, but you shouldn't be surprised if his DL stint extends beyond 15 days.

Yankees | Chris Young in lineup Wednesday

Wed, 20 May 2015 12:55:22 -0700

New York Yankees OF Chris Young is in the starting lineup and batting seventh Wednesday, May 20, against the Washington Nationals.

Fantasy Tip: Young ($3,200, 6.4% of cap) only has an .067 batting average in the last week and may have remained on the bench had it not been for an injury to Jacoby Ellsbury. He is lower in the lineup and will likely get less scoring chances, so leave him on the bench.

Yankees | Carlos Beltran bats second Wednesday

Wed, 20 May 2015 12:51:16 -0700

New York Yankees OF Carlos Beltran is hitting second Wednesday, May 20, against the Washington Nationals.

Fantasy Tip: With a .318 average in the last week, Beltran ($3,300, 6.6% of cap) is likely being moved up to create more scoring opportunities in the top of the lineup. Beltran is a decent play at this price.

Yankees | Jacoby Ellsbury has sprained knee

Wed, 20 May 2015 10:24:28 -0700

New York Yankees OF Jacoby Ellsbury (knee) is dealing with a sprained right knee that has landed him on the disabled list. He hurt himself swinging in the fourth inning of the game Tuesday, May 19, and he went for an MRI exam. The Yankees could move OF Brett Gardner to center field, OF Chris Young could play center field. OF Slade Heathcott, who was recalled from the minors, is another option in center.

Fantasy Tip: There's no timetable for Ellsbury's ($5,900, 11.8% of cap) return, but given his history with nagging ailments, you should plan for the worst and a stay beyond the 15 days on the DL. Young ($3,200, 6.4% of cap) should now see regular playing time, boosting his value in deep mixed and AL-only leagues. Young is a fine weapon for FantasyScore lineups against southpaws. Heathcott is strictly an AL-only commodity in deep setups.
