Yankees | Targeting Friday for Jacoby Ellsbury

Wed, 26 Aug 2015 19:55:24 -0700

New York Yankees OF Jacoby Ellsbury (hip) was out of the lineup Wednesday, Aug. 26, against the Houston Astros. Manager Joe Girardi said he is hopeful Ellsbury will be ready to go Friday, Aug. 28, against the Atlanta Braves.

Fantasy Tip: Ellsbury ($4,700, 9.4% of cap) was sore after the game Tuesday. He should be avoided in FantasyScore until he can officially return and prove his health in a full game without any setbacks.

Yankees | Dustin Ackley to begin rehab stint

Wed, 26 Aug 2015 19:53:56 -0700

New York Yankees OF Dustin Ackley (back) is ready to begin a minor-league rehab assignment with Class AAA Scranton/Wilkes-Barre Thursday, Aug. 27.

Fantasy Tip: It's uncertain where Ackley will be used when he is ready to return to the big club, but he can play second base as well as the outfield. He might be a cheap option in FantasyScore if he gets an opportunity.

Yankees | Carlos Beltran into double digits

Wed, 26 Aug 2015 19:52:46 -0700

New York Yankees OF Carlos Beltran went 1-for-2 with a pair of walks Wednesday, Aug. 26, against the Houston Astros to extend his hitting streak to 10 games.

Fantasy Tip: Beltran ($4,500, 9.0% of cap) has emerged as a must-start mid-level play in FantasyScore, going 11-for-33 (.333) with a homer, seven RBIs, five runs scored and four walks during the impressive 10-game span.

Yankees | Michael Pineda has unspectacular return

Wed, 26 Aug 2015 19:52:18 -0700

New York Yankees SP Michael Pineda (forearm) returned from the 15-day disabled list to start Wednesday, Aug. 26, against the Houston Astros but he allowed five earned runs, six hits and a walk in just 4 1/3 innings in a loss.

Fantasy Tip: Pineda ($7,100, 14.2% of cap) made just 71 pitches before hitting the showers. Give him one more outing to prove his health and get untracked before sinking money into him in FantasyScore.

Yankees | Brett Gardner has gone ice cold in August

Wed, 26 Aug 2015 14:46:17 -0700

New York Yankees OF Brett Gardner is batting just .193 in August.

Fantasy Tip: Gardner ($4,600, 9.2% of cap) has only seven runs, a double, a home run and seven RBI for the month, too. His decline really started in July, though, as he owns a .224/.344/.299 slash line over 45 games since the beginning of July. The juice currently isn't worth the squeeze at FantasyScore, and seasonal owners shouldn't be against benching Gardner while he is struggling.

Yankees | Alex Rodriguez looking at weekend off?

Wed, 26 Aug 2015 14:27:36 -0700

New York Yankees 3B Alex Rodriguez is unlikely to play the field during the upcoming weekend road series against the Atlanta Braves, according to manager Joe Girardi.

Fantasy Tip: Without the option to serve as a designated hitter, Rodriguez ($5,500, 11.0% of cap) will be limited to pinch-hitting duty. It would be a little surprising to see him miss all three games, though, so make sure to check back for updates. Still, you'll want to prepare for the worst and have alternative hitters ready. Plus, after a scorching July, Rodriguez owns a horrible .145/.261/.263 slash line in August.

Wed, 26 Aug 2015 08:35:22 -0700

New York Yankees OF Carlos Beltran is hitting second Wednesday, Aug. 26, against Houston Astros SP Collin McHugh.

Fantasy Tip: Beltran ($4,500, 9.0% of cap) is hitting .324-5-14 this month and is a good option on FantasyScore.

Yankees | Mark Teixeira out of lineup

Wed, 26 Aug 2015 08:34:11 -0700

New York Yankees 1B Mark Teixeira is out of the lineup Wednesday, Aug. 26. 1B Greg Bird is hitting sixth.

Fantasy Tip: No word on whether it's a planned day off or Tex suffered a setback in his return from a shin injury. Bird ($3,700, 7.4% of cap) is a low-end option against Collin McHugh on FantasyScore.

Yankees | Jacoby Ellsbury out with hip issue

Wed, 26 Aug 2015 08:18:56 -0700

New York Yankees OF Jacoby Ellsbury (hip) is out of the lineup with hip soreness Wednesday, Aug. 26. The team isn't viewing it as a major issue yet. OF Brett Gardner is hitting leadoff in his place.

Fantasy Tip: Gardy ($4,600, 9.2% of cap) faces Collin McHugh today, but he's hitting just .203 this month and .136 over the last week. He might not be the best option on FantasyScore at this midrange price.

Yankees | Mark Teixeira hitless in return

Tue, 25 Aug 2015 22:39:27 -0700

New York Yankees 1B Mark Teixeira (shin) was hitless in two at-bats Tuesday, Aug. 25, against the Houston Astros in his return to the lineup. He barely was able to run to first base on a fourth-inning groundout and he was removed in the seventh inning. "That's all I got," Teixeira said. "I ran as hard as I could.

Fantasy Tip: Teixeira ($5,300, 10.6% of cap) was removed early, but the game was also a blowout. It appears he is going to tough it out through injury, but he is not recommended in FantasyScore since he is clearly not 100 percent.

Yankees | CC Sabathia hopes to return this year

Tue, 25 Aug 2015 14:47:26 -0700

New York Yankees SP CC Sabathia (knee) believes he will be able to pitch again this season, and added he would be willing to pitch out of the bullpen.

Fantasy Tip: Manager Joe Girardi speculated Sabathia ($4,600, 9.2% of cap) may be done for the season, and if Sabathia is already talking bullpen, you can safely drop him from your fantasy roster in the majority of leagues. Continue to check back for updates on the veteran.

Yankees | Stephen Drew sitting Tuesday

Tue, 25 Aug 2015 13:17:05 -0700

New York Yankees 2B Stephen Drew is out of the starting lineup Tuesday, Aug. 25, against the Houston Astros. 2B Brendan Ryan is batting ninth against Astros SP Dallas Keuchel.

Fantasy Tip: Drew ($3,200, 6.4% of cap) is out due to the lefty vs. lefty matchup, so he should not be in your FantasyScore lineup. Ryan ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) is hitless against Keuchel and carries no fantasy value.

Yankees | Brian McCann not starting Tuesday

Tue, 25 Aug 2015 13:12:36 -0700

New York Yankees C Brian McCann is out of the starting lineup Tuesday, Aug. 25, against the Houston Astros. C J.R. Murphy is hitting seventh against Astros SP Dallas Keuchel.

Fantasy Tip: With Alex Rodriguez serving as DH for this game, McCann ($4,500, 9.0% of cap) is taking a seat. Murphy ($2,000, 4.0% of cap) has little fantasy value.

Yankees | Mark Teixeira back at first base

Tue, 25 Aug 2015 13:02:41 -0700

New York Yankees 1B Mark Teixeira (leg) is back in the starting lineup Tuesday, Aug. 25, against the Houston Astros. Teixeira is batting fourth against Astros SP Dallas Keuchel.

Fantasy Tip: A sore leg has kept Teixeira ($5,300, 10.6% of cap) out of the lineup for the past week. Standard procedure says you should keep a player out for a game or two to see how he responds, but Teixeira has been hitting the ball well and has a .333 mark against Keuchel.
