Yankees | Stephen Drew starting

Fri, 01 Aug 2014 15:29:09 -0700

New York Yankees SS Stephen Drew is starting at second base and batting eighth in his debut with the team Friday, Aug. 1.

Fantasy Tip: Drew is expected to see the majority of his starts come at the keystone, but he can also be shifted to shortstop or third base, if needed. He's mainly an AL-only commodity as a glove-first player.

Yankees | Brian Roberts designated for assignment

Thu, 31 Jul 2014 13:52:02 -0700

The New York Yankees have designated Brian Roberts for assignment.

Fantasy Tip: The deals for Stephen Drew and Martin Prado rendered him as extraneous. He may catch on somewhere else but probably won't have much value if so.

Yankees | Acquire Martin Prado

Thu, 31 Jul 2014 13:20:37 -0700

The New York Yankees acquired 3B/OF Martin Prado from the Arizona Diamondbacks for C Peter O'Brien.

Fantasy Tip: Prado instantly gains fantasy value and will be a popular AL-only crossover FAAB piece. O'Brien is a fine power prospect who's in the midst of a breakout year in the minors. Watch for him in the next season or two to arrive in the majors, depending on Miguel Montero's future.

Yankees | Stephen Drew acquired

Thu, 31 Jul 2014 12:45:27 -0700

The New York Yankees acquired SS Stephen Drew from the Boston Red Sox Thursday, July 31, in exchange for 2B Kelly Johnson.

Fantasy Tip: Drew is an interesting acquisition. He can spell Derek Jeter down the stretch and could presumably play some second base with Brian Roberts tiring in the second half. His playing time will likely be frustrating for owners, however. Drew is primarily an AL-only asset at this point.

Wed, 30 Jul 2014 20:03:06 -0700

Philadelphia Phillies OF Marlon Byrd might be on the move before the non-waiver trade deadline Thursday, July 31. The New York Yankees have talked to the Phillies about Byrd, though no deal is close yet. The Yankees are looking to add another bat. However, the Yankees do not seem to love the $8 million salary Byrd carries for the 2015 season.

Yankees | Expressed interest in Josh Willingham

Wed, 30 Jul 2014 17:42:35 -0700

Minnesota Twins OF Josh Willingham has reportedly drawn some interest from the New York Yankees leading up to the non-waiver trade deadline Thursday, July 31. The Seattle Mariners have also shown an interest.

Fantasy Tip: If Willingham were to land in New York, his playing time likely would decrease somewhat, as they have a glut of outfielders already. As such, his already marginal fantasy appeal would also decrease.

Yankees | Brian McCann, Brian Roberts sitting

Wed, 30 Jul 2014 13:48:39 -0700

New York Yankees C Brian McCann and 2B Brian Roberts (fatigue) are both out of the starting lineup Wednesday, July 30.

Fantasy Tip: McCann is likely taking a routine day of rest, while Roberts is receiving an extra day off to get over his fatigue issues. Both players need to be on your bench for tonight's game.
