Yankees | Francisco Cervelli can still be serviceable

Tue, 29 Jul 2014 17:15:12 -0700

New York Yankees C Francisco Cervelli was pressed into regular duty with 1B Mark Teixeira (lat, back) sidelined, and C Brian McCann working at first base. Cervelli has hit safely in a career-high 10 games, and manager Joe Girardi said it is a reminder Cervelli can be serviceable catcher at the big league level. "Great job. I said it last year; Cervy's talented," Girardi said Tuesday, July 29. "It's unfortunate, some of the injuries he's had - broken hand, broken wrist, concussion. But Cervy's player for us and he's played well. He's been thrown into pennant races and everything. We just need to keep him healthy."

Fantasy Tip: With Teixeira back in the lineup Tuesday, and McCann back behind the dish, and the brittle Carlos Beltran serving as DH, Cervelli returned to the bench. He is only worth a look in the deepest of AL-only fantasy leagues despite his recent success at the plate.

Yankees | Brian Roberts sidelined

Tue, 29 Jul 2014 17:14:43 -0700

Yankees | Michael Pineda tosses sim game

Tue, 29 Jul 2014 17:13:21 -0700

New York Yankees SP Michael Pineda (back) threw a simulated game Tuesday, July 29. Manager Joe Girardi said the session was "really good." The next outing will be a minor-league rehab game, working either four innings or 60-65 pitches Sunday, Aug. 3, for an affiliate to be determined. Once he makes that rehab outing, that will begin a 30-day rehab clock, which, hopefully, will mean a return to the team sometime in August.

Yankees | Not looking at Justin Masterson

Tue, 29 Jul 2014 09:54:40 -0700

Cleveland Indians SP Justin Masterson is not on the radar of the New York Yankees as the trade deadline approaches, although they continue to look for starting pitching upgrades. It's a gamble to trade for Masterson, since he has been on the disabled list with an inflamed right knee and will be making his first start back Friday, Aug. 1, a day after the deadline.

Yankees | Mark Teixeira feeling better

Tue, 29 Jul 2014 09:04:33 -0700

New York Yankees 1B Mark Teixeira (lat) made a pinch-hitting appearance in the eighth inning Monday, July 28, and was then lifted for a pinch runner. He took grounders and batting practice before the game with hopes of returning to the lineup Tuesday, July 29. He said the back spasms that have bothered him are gone. "I feel better now than I've felt in over a month," he said.

Fantasy Tip: It looks like Teixeira will be able to avoid the disabled list now. Make sure you check the Yankees' starting lineup tonight before putting him back into your starting lineup.

Fantasy Tip: Teixeira could very well land on the DL very soon. Prepare for an extended absence from him. Ellsbury is likely just receiving the day off. Make sure both are out of your lineups this evening.

Yankees | Mark Teixeira does some baseball activities

Sun, 27 Jul 2014 19:33:38 -0700

New York Yankees 1B Mark Teixeira (lat) took some swings in a batting cage and fielded ground balls Sunday, July 27. He will be reevaluated Monday, July 27, and could avoid the 15-day disabled list if he does not have any problems.

Fantasy Tip: This appears to be a good sign for Teixeira, but the next day or two will be important for him. Owners should keep him out of their lineups until there is a clearer picture on his recovery.
