Yankees | Mark Teixeira inactive

Fri, 25 Jul 2014 13:48:05 -0700

New York Yankees 1B Mark Teixeira (back) is not in the lineup Friday, July 25.

Fantasy Tip: There's hope Tex will avoid a stint on the disabled list, but it's not a sound bet if you're a fantasy player. Line up contingency plans if you already haven't.

Yankees | Chris Capuano starting Saturday

Fri, 25 Jul 2014 13:38:47 -0700

New York Yankees SP Chris Capuano will start Saturday, July 26, against the Toronto Blue Jays. SP Chase Whitley will lose his rotation spot and pitch out of the bullpen.

Fantasy Tip: Capuano hasn't started a game all season, so his innings should be limited. It could take a few starts to stretch his arm out. He is worth a speculative flier in AL-only formats and could develop into a matchup-related deep-mixed play. Obviously, Whitley's value plummets, and he isn't worth a roster spot, at this point.

Yankees | Mark Teixeira update

Fri, 25 Jul 2014 12:47:57 -0700

New York Yankees 1B Mark Teixeira (back) said his back spasms are feeling better Friday, July 24. The goal is to avoid the disabled list, and Teixeira said he may begin swinging Friday.

Fantasy Tip: It doesn't hurt to scout out replacements. Teixeira's optimism has misled fantasy owners in the past.

Yankees | Scouted Ian Kennedy

Thu, 24 Jul 2014 09:22:55 -0700

San Diego Padres SP Ian Kennedy was scouted by the New York Yankees in Chicago Wednesday, July 23. The Yankees are trying to trade for a starting pitcher.

Fantasy Tip: Full circle for the former Bomber? He's a much different, improved pitcher than he was in his early Yanks days, but anyone who would go from PETCO Park to Yankee Stadium deserves added risk to their fantasy value. Still, if this happens, AL-only players should be willing to stake a high FAAB crossover bid that he has enough skills to overcome his would-be new home park.

Yankees | Derek Jeter sitting

Thu, 24 Jul 2014 08:38:43 -0700

New York Yankees SS Derek Jeter is receiving the day off Thursday, July 24, because it's a day game following a night game.

Fantasy Tip: Remove him from any daily-transaction lineups, if you're still playing him there.

Yankees | Mark Teixeira DL decision coming

Thu, 24 Jul 2014 08:07:06 -0700

New York Yankees 1B Mark Teixeira (lat) will know whether he's going on the disabled list Friday, July 25, according to manager Joe Girardi.

Fantasy Tip: Plan ahead. We're betting he lands on the disabled list given how slowly he has healed in recent years.

Yankees | Mark Teixeira out again

Thu, 24 Jul 2014 08:05:52 -0700

New York Yankees 1B Mark Teixeira (lat) is out of the lineup Thursday, July 24. Brian McCann is again starting at first base in his place.

Fantasy Tip: He continues to nurse lat soreness and could hit the disabled list. Stay tuned and search for alternatives for the long term.

Yankees | Mark Teixeira DL trip possible

Wed, 23 Jul 2014 15:38:33 -0700

New York Yankees 1B Mark Teixeira (lat) may require a DL stint, according to general manager Brian Cashman.

Fantasy Tip: Tex's up-and-down season seems to have hit another valley. Brian McCann may line up at first base for the duration, especially with INF/OF Kelly Johnson (groin) on the disabled list. It'd be good for McCann's value to play more frequently and not behind the plate.

Yankees | Masahiro Tanaka not improving

Wed, 23 Jul 2014 15:32:35 -0700

New York Yankees SP Masahiro Tanaka (elbow) is "still feeling it" 10 days after receiving a platelet-rich plasma injection in his right elbow, according to general manager Brian Cashman.

Fantasy Tip: It's unlikely that the righty will return within the next month, and he may not pitch again in 2014. Tommy John surgery -- which would cost him much, if not all, of 2015 -- also looms as a possibility.
