Yankees | Brian McCann drives in four runs

Tue, 04 Aug 2015 20:18:21 -0700

New York Yankees C Brian McCann went 2-for-5 with a double, three-run home run and four RBIs Tuesday, Aug. 4, against the Boston Red Sox.

Fantasy Tip: McCann ($4,900, 9.8% of cap) has turned up the power in the month of August, swatting two homers with five RBIs in three games. He has been streaky this season, and right now he is running hot. Keep rolling with him in FantasyScore until the next cool streak comes around.

Yankees | Masahiro Tanaka turns in quality start

Tue, 04 Aug 2015 20:17:50 -0700

New York Yankees SP Masahiro Tanaka allowed three earned runs, five hits and a walk with three strikeouts over six innings in a win against the Boston Red Sox Tuesday, Aug. 4.

Fantasy Tip: Since the start of July, Tanaka has lasted at least six innings in each of his six starts. He has also struck out at least five in 11 of the past 13 starts to make him a solid FantasyScore option. He is 2-0 with a 4.91 ERA in two outings against the Red Sox this season.

Yankees | Chris Young has another big stat line

Tue, 04 Aug 2015 20:17:21 -0700

New York Yankees OF Chris Young went 3-for-4 with a three-run home run Tuesday, Aug. 4, against the Boston Red Sox. He finished with four runs scored, a walk and three RBIs.

Fantasy Tip: Young ($3,000, 6.0% of cap) is 8-for-20 (.400) with 10 runs scored, and eight RBIs over his past six games to raise his average from .257 to .268 just since July 27. He is a solid short-term FantasyScore option as long as he is running hot.

Yankees | Luis Severino debuting Wednesday

Tue, 04 Aug 2015 16:05:03 -0700

New York Yankees SP Luis Severino will be called up from the minors to make his major league debut against the Boston Red Sox Wednesday, Aug. 5.

Fantasy Tip: Severino ($5,000, 10.0% of cap) should already be owned in all keeper and dynasty leagues, and he should also be immediately added in AL-only leagues if he's still available. The right-hander had a 1.91 ERA, 0.93 WHIP and 50 strikeouts in 61 1/3 innings over 11 starts at Class AAA Scranton/Wilkes-Barre. He could be valuable in mixed leagues, too. On FantasyScore in his major league debut tomorrow, he carries plenty or risk but has considerable upside, especially for the price.

Yankees | Michael Pineda out until September

Tue, 04 Aug 2015 15:58:14 -0700

New York Yankees SP Michael Pineda (forearm) will be out until at least September with his right forearm strain, according to general manager Brian Cashman. Pineda is 9-7 with a 3.97 ERA on the season and went on the disabled list last week. It's unlikely that the Yankees will stretch out P Adam Warren for the rotation, according to manager Joe Girardi. Warren has been a reliever for more than a month, so Girardi thinks Warren can only throw around 50 pitches in a game.

Fantasy Tip: Pineda ($7,400, 14.8% of cap) should be retained in all formats, as he can still contribute to a fantasy pitching staff for the final month of the season. Luis Severino, the team's top pitching prospect, is entering the rotation in Pineda's start and will make his debut tomorrow against the Boston Red Sox. There's a lot to like about Severino, but using him immediately on FantasyScore would be a bold move.

Yankees | Chase Headley has hit streak going

Tue, 04 Aug 2015 15:31:08 -0700

New York Yankees 3B Chase Headley is in the midst of an 11-game hitting streak in which he's batting .439. He's recorded an 11-game hitting streak or better in each of the last five seasons.

Fantasy Tip: This is a good time as ever to use Headley ($3,600, 7.2% of cap) as a value play on FantasyScore. He's facing Boston Red Sox rookie Henry Owens making his major league debut tonight, which makes him even more attractive.

Yankees | Brett Gardner not starting Tuesday

Tue, 04 Aug 2015 12:56:30 -0700

New York Yankees OF Brett Gardner is not in the starting lineup Tuesday, Aug. 4, against the Boston Red Sox. OF Chris Young is in left field.

Fantasy Tip: Gardner ($5,600, 11.2% of cap) carries a .263 average and two home runs against left-handed pitching, and the Red Sox have Henry Owens on the hill on Tuesday. Young ($3,000, 6.0% of cap) is a solid cheaper play thanks to his .363-7-19 line against the left.

Yankees | Ivan Nova solid Sunday

Mon, 03 Aug 2015 06:35:41 -0700

New York Yankees SP Ivan Nova (arm) showed no signs of arm fatigue Sunday, Aug. 2, against the Chicago White Sox. He allowed one run on five hits and two walks while striking out seven batters. Nova said everything was working fine after throwing 90 pitches.

Fantasy Tip: This is good news to see after he left his previous start with arm fatigue. Still, Nova ($5,300, 10.6% of cap) is more of a matchup play than a set-and-forget starter in fantasy.

Yankees | Big game for Stephen Drew

Sun, 02 Aug 2015 18:58:13 -0700

New York Yankees 2B Stephen Drew went 3-for-5 with a double, a triple, four RBI and two runs scored in a 12-3 win over the Chicago White Sox Sunday, Aug. 2.

Fantasy Tip: Drew ($3,200, 6.4% of cap) has had several big games this year, but he is hitting just .199 and will go several games at a time without any production. He is a high-risk, high-reward value play at FantasyScore.

Yankees | Didi Gregorius dialed in

Sun, 02 Aug 2015 18:53:15 -0700

New York Yankees SS Didi Gregorius went 2-for-4 with two RBI and three runs scored in a 12-3 win over the Chicago White Sox Sunday, Aug. 2, and he is hitting .472 over his last 11 games.

Fantasy Tip: Gregorius ($3,000, 6.0% of cap) is normally known for his glove, but feel free to take advantage of his hot bat if you are looking for some cap relief at FantasyScore.

Yankees | Brian McCann returns to action

Sun, 02 Aug 2015 10:22:12 -0700

New York Yankees C Brian McCann will bat fifth against Chicago White Sox SP Jeff Samardzija Sunday, Aug. 2.

Fantasy Tip: McCann ($4,900, 9.8% of cap) was out of the starting lineup for two games because the team faced left-handed starting pitchers on consecutive days. He is just 1-for-9 against Samardzija in his career and is not a great option in FantasyScore this afternoon.

Yankees | Carlos Beltran returns to action

Sun, 02 Aug 2015 10:20:03 -0700

New York Yankees OF Carlos Beltran will bat sixth and play right field against Chicago White Sox SP Jeff Samardzija Sunday, Aug. 2.

Fantasy Tip: Beltran ($3,700, 7.4% of cap) is a lifetime .357 hitter (5-for-14) against Samardzija, with a double, home run and two RBIs, making this a favorable FantasyScore matchup for him.

Yankees | Stephen Drew in lineup Sunday

Sun, 02 Aug 2015 10:16:58 -0700

New York Yankees 2B Stephen Drew will bat ninth against Chicago White Sox SP Jeff Samardzija Sunday, Aug. 2.

Fantasy Tip: Even though his batting average remains below the Mendoza Line, Drew ($2,500, 5.0% of cap) is hitting .267 with a home run and three RBIs in 30 at-bats since the All-Star break. That being said, he is hitting 64 points worse against right-handed pitching (.175) than against lefties (.239), so he should be avoided in FantasyScore this afternoon.

Yankees | Brendan Ryan continues to start

Sat, 01 Aug 2015 13:38:09 -0700

New York Yankees SS Brendan Ryan will start at second base and hit eighth in the order Saturday, Aug. 1, against the Chicago White Sox and LHP John Danks. 2B Stephen Drew is out of the lineup once again.

Fantasy Tip: Ryan ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) is 6-for-16 over his past three starts, and he has both scored and driven in four runs in that time. FantasyScore owners should be taking note and using Ryan as a tremendous source of cap relief.

Yankees | Brian McCann sitting out

Sat, 01 Aug 2015 13:34:27 -0700

New York Yankees C Brian McCann is out of the starting lineup Saturday, Aug. 1, against the Chicago White Sox and LHP John Danks. C J.R. Murphy will start behind the plate and hit seventh in the order.

Fantasy Tip: Murphy ($1,700, 3.4% of cap) is hitting a modest .250 against left-handed pitching this season, but he'll offer cap relief for FantasyScore owners willing to punt the catcher position.
