Yankees | Michael Pineda enjoys best start of year

Sat, 25 Jun 2016 13:15:45 -0700

New York Yankees SP Michael Pineda settled for his second no-decision in as many starts against the Minnesota Twins on Saturday, June 25, yielding only a solo homer among the two hits he allowed over six innings while striking out eight.

Fantasy Tip: Pineda was likely dropped in a lot of leagues a while ago as his ERA soared to 6.92 at the end of May, but he's been able to bring that number down to 5.51 thanks to five starts in June during which he is 1-1 with a 3.00 ERA. He has at least eight strikeouts in four of those outings, so he's not exactly pitching to contact. However, owners probably need to avoid him for now, or at least until after his next start against the Texas Rangers on Thursday.

Yankees | Ike Davis designated for assignment

Sat, 25 Jun 2016 09:12:22 -0700

New York Yankees 1B Ike Davis was designated for assignment Saturday, June 25.

Fantasy Tip: Davis had a .214 average with one RBI during his limited playing time with the Yankees, but it is not known if another team will add him. Owners in all leagues can drop Davis if they have him.

Yankees | Mark Teixeira activated from DL

Sat, 25 Jun 2016 07:39:39 -0700

New York Yankees 1B Mark Teixeira (knee) was activated from the 15-day disabled list Saturday, June 25. Teixeira will start at first base against Minnesota Twins SP Ervin Santana Saturday and is batting sixth in the lineup.

Fantasy Tip: Teixeira is hitting only .180 with three home runs and 12 RBI so far this season. Owners probably should wait until he is more productive at the plate before using him in their lineups.

Yankees | Brian McCann out against Minny

Fri, 24 Jun 2016 13:33:44 -0700

New York Yankees C Brian McCann is not in the starting lineup Friday, June 24. C Austin Romine is starting behind the plate and batting ninth against SP Tommy Milone Friday.

Fantasy Tip: McCann remains a middling starting option behind the plate in the majority of seasonal leagues with a mediocre 29 runs, 10 home runs, 29 RBI and .220/.323/.414 slash line. Romine's lack of playing time limits him to being a low-end option in cavernous mixed, two-catcher and AL-only leagues, as his .272/.286/.432 slash line through 85 plate appearances isn't too bad for a backup backstop.

Yankees | Chase Headley swats grand slam

Wed, 22 Jun 2016 16:32:08 -0700

New York Yankees 3B Chase Headley went 1-for-3 with a grand slam Wednesday, June 22, against the Colorado Rockies. It was his fourth home run of the season, and the 32-year-old finished with a run scored and four RBI for the day.

Fantasy Tip: Despite the encouraging game, Headley has been one of the most disappointing third basemen in all of fantasy baseball this season, and his struggles haven't gone away. In fact, the grand slam today was just his first long ball of June, and he also drove in more runs this afternoon than he did previously for the entire month.

Yankees | Carlos Beltran mashes 19th homer

Wed, 22 Jun 2016 16:30:52 -0700

New York Yankees OF Carlos Beltran went 1-for-3 with his 19th home run of the season Wednesday, June 22, versus the Colorado Rockies. He finished with one run scored, three RBI, and he also drew a walk.

Fantasy Tip: Beltran has simply been tremendous for the Yankees and fantasy owners who were wise enough to invest in him this season, as he also now has 51 RBI. He's been especially hot over his past five contests, having gone 9-for-21 with three homers and seven runs driven in over that span.

Yankees | CC Sabathia has worst start of '16

Wed, 22 Jun 2016 15:41:50 -0700

New York Yankees SP CC Sabathia managed to escape with a no-decision Wednesday, June 22, against the Colorado Rockies, but not before spinning his worst effort of the season. The veteran southpaw lasted a season-low 4 1/3 innings, surrendering a season-high six runs (five earned) on seven hits and two walks. He also picked up three strikeouts.

Fantasy Tip: Amazingly, it was just the first time all year Sabathia has allowed more than three runs in a start, and he had surrendered two or less in each of his last seven outings. His pitching has surprisingly been one of the large reasons why the Yankees have been able to stay afloat thus far, but everyone knew his outstanding run would be coming to an end sooner than later. Even so, he's done more than enough this year for his owners to stick with him. Caution should be expressed, though, if he struggles again his next time out.

Yankees | X-rays negative for CC Sabathia

Wed, 22 Jun 2016 13:57:26 -0700

New York Yankees SP CC Sabathia (ankle) turned his ankle during his start Wednesday, June 22. His X-ray results were negative, and he is expected to make his next start, according to manager Joe Girardi.

Fantasy Tip: Sabathia was roughed up by the Colorado Rockies in the start Wednesday, as he allowed six runs -- five earned -- on seven hits and two walks. And while he owned a 2.20 ERA over 11 starts entering Wednesday, fantasy owners shouldn't be too eager to cast Sabathia as anything more than a mid-rotation starter. It is likely still best to be selective with who you start him against, too. Stay tuned for updates, but it appears he's avoided injury.

Yankees | Aaron Judge heating up in Class AAA

Wed, 22 Jun 2016 12:06:54 -0700

New York Yankees OF Aaron Judge has hit .353 with five home runs and 10 RBI through his past 10 games with Class AAA Scranton/Wilkes-Barre.

Fantasy Tip: Judge should debut with the Yankees sometime this season, and as the team appears to be trending in the selling direction, it could be sooner than later that he brings his high-end power to Yankee Stadium. He is a viable stash candidate in cavernous mixed and AL-only formats and a player to monitor in shallower setups.

Yankees | Luis Severino still not ready

Wed, 22 Jun 2016 09:07:33 -0700

New York Yankees SP Luis Severino is still not ready to return to the majors, according to manager Joe Girardi.

"We've talked about Sevvy -- the location of his fastball has not been great, his changeup has not been as effective as we need it to be and his slider has been inconsistent," Girardi said. "We want to get him straightened out; we don't want to just bring him up because maybe another guy is struggling. You've got to make pitches here. Pitching here is a lot different. You make mistakes here and they are hit hard."

Fantasy Tip: Severino is 3-0 with a 2.52 ERA through four starts for Class AAA Scranton/Wilkes-Barre, and he pitched 8 1/3 innings of one-run ball in his last start Saturday, June 18. It appears he is close, but for now, he remains nothing more than a speculative stash in deep mixed and AL-only leagues.

Yankees | Mark Teixeira begins rehab assignment

Tue, 21 Jun 2016 22:35:31 -0700

New York Yankees 1B Mark Teixeira (knee) went 0-for-3 with a sacrifice fly for Class AAA Scranton/Wilkes-Barre on Tuesday, June 21. He's expected to play two more games there and, barring any setbacks, return to the Yankees on Saturday, June 25.

Fantasy Tip: Teixeira hasn't done much this year (.180-3-12 in 167 ABs), but he did crank 31 home runs a season ago. That alone makes him worth stashing in AL-only and very deep mixed leagues in advance of his projected return.

Yankees | Jacoby Ellsbury on bench Tuesday

Tue, 21 Jun 2016 12:53:46 -0700

New York Yankees OF Jacoby Ellsbury is not in the starting lineup Tuesday, June 21, against the Colorado Rockies. OF Aaron Hicks replaces Ellsbury in center and will bat eighth against Rockies SP Chad Bettis.

Fantasy Tip: Ellsbury is getting his first day off in two weeks, so he may be available for pinch-hit duties. Hicks is 5-for-14 (.357) in the last week but may have muted fantasy value because of his position in the lineup.

Yankees | Two bombs for Brian McCann

Sun, 19 Jun 2016 16:32:18 -0700

New York Yankees C Brian McCann went 3-for-4 with two solo home runs in a 7-4 loss to the Minnesota Twins Sunday, June 19.

Fantasy Tip: McCann is on pace for more than 20 homers, but he is hitting just .219. He has enough power for his position to start in mixed leagues, but he is an all-or-nothing DFS play.

Yankees | Mark Teixeira may return soon

Sun, 19 Jun 2016 12:14:44 -0700

New York Yankees 1B Mark Teixeira (knee) likely will play three games for Class AAA Scranton/Wilkes Barre this week and hopes to be able to play for the Yankees Saturday, June 25.

Fantasy Tip: Teixeira has missed the last few weeks because of the injury but should be in the starting lineup when he is activated from the disabled list. He is hitting only .180 with three home runs and 12 RBI this season and is not a strong fantasy option at this point.

Yankees | Rough outing for Aroldis Chapman

Sat, 18 Jun 2016 14:37:22 -0700

New York Yankees RP Aroldis Chapman served up a back-to-back solo homers in the ninth inning against the Minnesota Twins on Saturday, June 18, but recovered just in time to preserve a 7-6 victory and notch his 13th save.

Fantasy Tip: The home runs by Eduardo Escobar and Kurt Suzuki are the first surrendered this season by Chapman, who hasn't been dominant self lately. He has allowed at least one run and two baserunners in four of his eight appearances this month while watching his ERA soar from 1.93 to 3.18 over that span. Chapman's job status isn't in question, so owners should feel free to ride this stretch out for now.
