Yankees | Chris Capuano starting Tuesday

Tue, 28 Jul 2015 13:40:36 -0700

New York Yankees SP Chris Capuano is making the start against the Texas Rangers Tuesday, July 28, in order to give extra rest to SPs Masahiro Tanaka and Michael Pineda. It will be Capuano's first start since May 29. He's 0-4 with a 5.64 ERA this year. He was 0-3 with a 6.39 ERA in three May starts before moving to the bullpen.

Fantasy Tip: Given Capuano's ineffectiveness as a starter for the Yankees this year, you should avoid him everywhere in this spot start.

Yankees | Didi Gregorius hits well against Texas

Tue, 28 Jul 2015 13:34:01 -0700

New York Yankees SS Didi Gregorius went 3-for-4 with a home run and a career-high four RBI against the Texas Rangers Monday, July 27, and he is 11-for-31 with four home runs and 11 RBI against the Rangers in his career.

Fantasy Tip: Don't overlook the fact that Gregorius ($3,000, 6.0% of cap) is hitting only .248 (76-for-306) with five home runs and 25 RBI on the season. He's batting just .203 (16-for-79) with one of his five homers against lefties this year, too, so consider him a weak play tonight against a southpaw.

Yankees | Alex Rodriguez on homer binge

Tue, 28 Jul 2015 13:31:26 -0700

New York Yankees 3B Alex Rodriguez has hit four home runs in his last two games. He became the fourth player in major league history to hit a home run as a teenager and in his 40s Monday, July 27.

Fantasy Tip: Rodriguez ($5,800, 11.6% of cap) continues his fine season after sitting out all of 2014. A-Rod has a 1.030 OPS with nine of his 24 home runs against left-handers this year, making him a fine pick on FantasyScore tonight against Texas Rangers lefty Martin Perez.

Yankees | NY looking at Craig Kimbrel

Tue, 28 Jul 2015 11:24:26 -0700

San Diego Padres RP Craig Kimbrel has come up in trade talks with the New York Yankees. The Yankees have no intentions of trading SP Luis Severino, OF Aaron Judge, 1B Greg Bird or SS Jorge Mateo in any trades. A person familiar with the Padres' thinking believes the Yankees would have to change that stance for any deal to happen.

Fantasy Tip: The Yanks already have a lights-out bullpen, so this trade would be a bit peculiar. If Kimbrel lands with the Yanks, he'd be expected to close for them, basically ruining much of Andrew Miller's fantasy value. In San Diego, either Joaquin Benoit or Brandon Maurer could be used in the ninth inning for saves.

Yankees | Ivan Nova leaves start early

Mon, 27 Jul 2015 22:07:31 -0700

New York Yankees SP Ivan Nova (arm) was lifted early from his start Monday, July 27, against the Texas Rangers due to arm fatigue. Manager Joe Girardi said Nova "was a little bit tired," and the pitcher reported "arm fatigue."

Fantasy Tip: Avoid Nova ($5,300, 10.6% of cap) in FantasyScore until he can officially return and prove his health in a full game without any setbacks.

Yankees | Stephen Drew out against southpaw

Mon, 27 Jul 2015 16:38:44 -0700

New York Yankees 2B Stephen Drew is not in the lineup against Texas Rangers left-handed SP Matt Harrison Monday, July 27. SS Brendan Ryan is starting at the keystone and hitting ninth.

Fantasy Tip: Ryan ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) is a light-hitting utility infielder for the Bronx Bombers, and he should be avoided unless you're desperate for some salary cap relief on FantasyScore.

Yankees | Jacoby Ellsbury out Monday

Mon, 27 Jul 2015 16:33:29 -0700

New York Yankees OF Jacoby Ellsbury (shoulder) is not in the starting lineup Monday, July 27. OF Chris Young is starting in left field and hitting second against Texas Rangers left-handed SP Matt Harrison.

Fantasy Tip: Young ($3,000, 6.0% of cap) is about one of the most attractive value plays tonight on FantasyScore, especially with a smaller slate of games. Young sports a slash line of .374/.430/.692 with a 1.122 OPS and six of his 11 home runs against left-handers this year. Despite a good outing in his last start, it'll be Harrison's third start this year.

Yankees | Jacoby Ellsbury feeling good

Mon, 27 Jul 2015 15:29:06 -0700

New York Yankees OF Jacoby Ellsbury (shoulder) said his shoulder feels good but expected to receive a day off during the team's road trip.

Fantasy Tip: Ellsbury ($4,600, 9.2% of cap) is hitting only .213 this month but does have two home runs and nine RBI during that span. Ellsbury could be a solid starting option for owners on FantasyScore when he is in the lineup.

Rangers | Prince Fielder plays well against Yankees

Mon, 27 Jul 2015 14:25:01 -0700

Texas Rangers 1B Prince Fielder is hitting .353 with eight home runs and 25 RBI in 25 career games against the New York Yankees.

Fantasy Tip: Fielder ($5,800, 11.6% of cap) has played very well this season with .337 batting average and 15 home runs. Fielder should be a nightly starting option for owners on FantasyScore.

Yankees | Chase Headley playing well

Sun, 26 Jul 2015 16:10:55 -0700

New York Yankees 3B Chase Headley went 2-for-4 with a home run, three RBI and two runs scored in a 7-2 win over the Minnesota Twins Sunday, July 26, and he has seven RBI over his last four games.

Fantasy Tip: Headley ($3,600, 7.2% of cap) has hit safely in nine of his last 10 games and has 10 RBI during the stretch. He could be worth a look as a source of cap relief at FantasyScore while he is swinging a hot bat.

Yankees | Luis Severino could be promoted

Sun, 26 Jul 2015 13:55:25 -0700

New York Yankees minor league SP Luis Severino could be called up from the minors as soon as this week.

Fantasy Tip: Severino is the organization's top pitching prospect and he is 6-0 with a 2.11 ERA for Class AAA Scranton/Wilkes-Barre after beginning the season at Class AA Trenton. He should be stashed in AL-only leagues, while owners in keeper and dynasty fantasy baseball leagues should definitely be keeping close tabs on him.

Yankees | Garrett Jones receives start

Sun, 26 Jul 2015 11:05:48 -0700

New York Yankees 1B Garrett Jones will start at first base against Minnesota Twins SP Kyle Gibson Sunday, July 26, and is batting sixth in the lineup.

Fantasy Tip: Jones ($2,100, 4.2% of cap) is hitting only .224 in limited playing time this season, and owners on FantasyScore should be able to find better options to use for their lineups.

Yankees | Alex Rodriguez on the bench

Sun, 26 Jul 2015 11:04:45 -0700

New York Yankees 3B Alex Rodriguez is not in the starting lineup against Minnesota Twins SP Kyle Gibson Sunday, July 26. 1B Mark Teixeira will serve as the designated hitter and is batting third in the lineup.

Fantasy Tip: Rodriguez ($5,500, 11.0% of cap) is receiving a day off after a terrific performance Saturday, July 25. Teixeira ($5,000, 10.0% of cap) has recorded at least two hits in six of his last seven games and is a solid starting option on FantasyScore.

Yankees | Alex Rodriguez homers three times

Sat, 25 Jul 2015 20:29:35 -0700

New York Yankees 3B Alex Rodriguez went 3-for-4 with three home runs, four RBI and three runs scored in an 8-5 win over the Minnesota Twins Saturday, July 25, becoming the fifth-oldest player to hit three home runs in a game.

Fantasy Tip: Rodriguez ($5,500, 11.0% of cap) continues his resurgent year, and he is now on pace for 39 homers. Feel free to use him at FantasyScore whenever he draws a friendly pitching matchup.

Yankees | Didi Gregorius takes a breather

Sat, 25 Jul 2015 14:50:25 -0700

New York Yankees SS Didi Gregorius is out of the lineup Saturday, July 25, with SS Brendan Ryan hitting eighth.

Fantasy Tip: Ryan ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) isn't in there for his offense and shouldn't be used on FantasyScore.
