Yankees | David Robertson to make rehab outing

Thu, 17 Apr 2014 08:50:21 -0700

New York Yankees RP David Robertson (groin) said he will make a rehab outing with Single-A Tampa Saturday, April 19.

Fantasy Tip: Robertson is eligible to be activated from the DL next Tuesday, and he fully expects to be ready by then. Every indication is that Robertson will be handed the closing duties back immediately by Joe Girardi. Shawn Kelley has done a fine job in his absence, and he'll remain the handcuff to Robertson moving forward.

Yankees | Mark Teixeira to begin rehab stint

Thu, 17 Apr 2014 08:32:52 -0700

New York Yankees 1B Mark Teixeira (hamstring) is scheduled to play three innings in a minor league rehab game Thursday, April 17, and could return from the disabled list as early as Sunday, April 20. Teixeira took a full batting practice at the team's complex in Florida Wednesday, April 16, and ran the bases.

Fantasy Tip: Teixeira's hammy strain was the least severe kind, enabling him to recover rather quickly from it. Still, don't be surprised if the Yankees are extra cautious and wait to bring him back sometime next week.

Yankees | Masahiro Tanaka dominates

Wed, 16 Apr 2014 13:14:15 -0700

New York Yankees SP Masahiro Tanaka dominated the Chicago Cubs Wednesday, April 16, going eight innings while giving up just two bunt hits, striking out 10 and walking one. He's now 2-0 with a 2.05 ERA this year.

Fantasy Tip: This is a bit more than we expected out of Tanaka, at least right out of the gates. The strikeouts have been especially nice. Keeping up these kind of numbers will be tougher once teams change their approach, though.

Yankees | No timetable for rehab game for Mark Teixeira

Wed, 16 Apr 2014 09:10:00 -0700

New York Yankees 1B Mark Teixeira (hamstring) will work out at the team's spring training complex Wednesday, April 16, but manager Joe Girardi is unsure when he'll play in a rehab game.

Fantasy Tip: Teixeira is targeting this Sunday to come off the DL and play for the Yankees, but that seems like a very optimistic date, considering he doesn't have a rehab assignment in sights. Be prepared for him to not be ready when he's eligible to be activated.

Yankees | Owner confident in infield

Tue, 15 Apr 2014 12:24:05 -0700

New York Yankees owner Hal Steinbrenner said he's confident in the team's current infield and doesn't think the team needs to sign free-agent SS Stephen Drew (Red Sox). "I'm pretty content with our infield right now," Steinbrenner said. "I think guys like (Dean) Anna and (Yangervis) Solarte have been pleasant surprises. Kelly Johnson has been good. Derek (Jeter) is healthy. So far, so good. But it's early."

Yankees | Scott Sizemore, J.R. Murphy called up

Tue, 15 Apr 2014 09:43:31 -0700

The New York Yankees called up 2B Scott Sizemore and C J.R. Murphy from the minors Tuesday, April 15. C Francisco Cervelli (hamstring) was moved to the 60-day disabled list in a corresponding move.

Fantasy Tip: Sizemore will provide infield depth and Murphy will back up Brian McCann. Both players can be ignored in the vast majority of leagues.

Yankees | Francisco Cervelli to be out for a while

Mon, 14 Apr 2014 12:50:55 -0700

New York Yankees C Francisco Cervelli (hamstring) is expected to be out significantly longer than his 15-day disabled list stint, because a typical recovery from a Grade 2 hamstring strain can take up to four to six weeks. Miami Marlins OF Giancarlo Stanton missed six weeks last year with a similar ailment.

Yankees | X-rays negative for Brian McCann

Mon, 14 Apr 2014 12:17:24 -0700

X-rays on New York Yankees C Brian McCann's (hand) right hand came back negative.

Yankees | Not adding Kendrys Morales, Stephen Drew

Mon, 14 Apr 2014 11:04:48 -0700

The New York Yankees say there is "no way" they will sign free-agent 1B Kendrys Morales (Mariners) or SS Stephen Drew (Red Sox), even though they are dealing with a shortage of infielders early this season, according to a source familiar with the team's thinking. "Nobody's signing Drew or Morales, not at the money they're asking," said the source, who requested anonymity. Drew is reportedly looking for a multi-year deal worth $14 million a year, and Morales turned down "multiple contract offers" from the Seattle Mariners over the winter. The Yankees are likely to call up either INFs Russ Canzler or Scott Sizemore from Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre. Canzler is slightly more experienced at first base than Sizemore, who has never played the position in the majors.
