Yankees | CC Sabathia's start to be skipped

Fri, 03 Jul 2015 13:16:10 -0700

New York Yankees SP CC Sabathia's start Sunday, July 5, against the Tampa Bay Rays will be skipped. He is now scheduled to start Wednesday, July 8, against the Oakland Athletics.

Fantasy Tip: Sabathia ($4,300, 8.6% of cap) has been struggling this season with a 5.59 ERA in 16 starts. He has allowed at least one home run in seven of his last eight starts with nine home runs in his last six games. Owners on FantasyScore may want to avoid Sabathia until he is able to put some solid outings together.

Yankees | Carlos Beltran to DL

Fri, 03 Jul 2015 12:45:48 -0700

New York Yankees OF Carlos Beltran (oblique) has been placed on the 15-day disabled list with a strained left oblique muscle. The move is retroactive to Wednesday, July 1. In corresponding moves, the club also recalled OF Ramon Flores and IF Gregorio Petit from Class AAA Scranton/Wilkes-Barre and optioned OF Taylor Dugas to Class AAA.

Fantasy Tip: This move was widely expected for Beltran ($3,900, 7.8% of cap), who may need some time to recover from this injury. At the best, he'll be back just after the All-Star break, but age and the injury may conspire to keep him out longer.

Yankees | Jacoby Ellsbury not back Friday

Fri, 03 Jul 2015 12:21:23 -0700

New York Yankees OF Jacoby Ellsbury (knee) will not return Friday, July 3, as originally hoped. Ellsbury did not play in a rehab game Thursday, July 2, marking the second time in four minor-league games that he did not play.

Fantasy Tip: The team obviously believes Ellsbury ($4,600, 9.2% of cap) is not ready yet. Keep an eye out for when he is activated and maybe wait one or two games after that as he may be slow to recover.

Yankees | Carlos Beltran day-to-day

Thu, 02 Jul 2015 10:41:55 -0700

New York Yankees OF Carlos Beltran (rib cage) remains day-to-day with a rib cage injury. If he'll only miss a few days, the Yankees will keep him on the active roster. If not, Beltran will go on the disabled list.

Fantasy Tip: Beltran ($3,900, 7.8% of cap) is in a holding pattern right now, so stay tuned. He's worth stashing in all formats if he goes on the DL. The Yanks are in luck, though, with Jacoby Ellsbury (knee) likely returning this weekend. If Beltran is forced to the DL, Chris Young ($3,000, 6.0% of cap) will likely continue to see regular playing time. He's a nice value pick on FantasyScore when facing certain left-handed hurlers.

Yankees | Jacoby Ellsbury ready to return

Thu, 02 Jul 2015 10:31:58 -0700

New York Yankees OF Jacoby Ellsbury (knee) will play one more rehab game Thursday, July 2, before the Yankees decide if he's ready to come off the disabled list. "He feels ready to go," general manager Brian Cashman said. "If it were 100% up to him, then he would be in the lineup on Friday."

Fantasy Tip: Ellsbury ($4,600, 9.2% of cap) should immediately be returned to all traditional lineups when he's back. On FantasyScore, you may want to give him a game or two before trusting him back in your lineups. Chris Young ($3,000, 6.0% of cap) is likely to go back to a fourth outfield role when Ellsbury returns, depending on the status of Carlos Beltran. Young can still be an effective value play against left-handed pitchers when he draws into the lineup, though.

Yankees | Chase Headley, Chris Young flip in order

Wed, 01 Jul 2015 14:37:01 -0700

New York Yankees 3B Chase Headley is batting second and OF Chris Young is batting seventh against Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim SP Matt Shoemaker Wednesday, July 1.

Fantasy Tip: Shoemaker has a 1.72 HR/9 and 14.7 percent HR/FB rate, so the Yankees have a homer-friendly matchup Wednesday. Neither Headley ($3,600, 7.2% of cap) or Young ($3,000, 6.0% of cap) are lineup locks for FantasyScore players, but they're worth a look if the price fits, especially Headley in the two-hole.

Yankees | Carlos Beltran likely to DL

Wed, 01 Jul 2015 08:38:07 -0700

New York Yankees OF Carlos Beltran (rib cage) is likely headed to the disabled list after the team recalled OF Taylor Dugas from the minors.

Fantasy Tip: The 25-year-old Dugas is hitting just .198-0-13 in 162 at-bats between Double-A and Triple-A. Garrett Jones could also see time in right, but his .229-4-13 line doesn't give much reason to add him on waivers. Stash Beltran if you have space.

Yankees | Mark Teixeira snaps HR drought

Tue, 30 Jun 2015 22:55:16 -0700

New York Yankees 1B Mark Teixeira hit his 19th homer of the season Tuesday, June 30, against the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim. He snapped an 11-game homer drought, his longest of the season.

Fantasy Tip: Teixeira ($5,000; or 10.0% of cap) has taken a bit of a step backward, but he remains a solid FantasyScore play especially at this price level.

Yankees | Carlos Beltran leaves game

Tue, 30 Jun 2015 22:54:40 -0700

New York Yankees OF Carlos Beltran (ribcage) left the game Tuesday, June 30, against the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim due to a ribcage injury. He will be re-evaluated Wednesday, July 1.

Fantasy Tip: Early indications are Beltran ($3,900; or 7.8% of cap) will not need a stint on the 15-day disabled list, but that won't be official until he is evaluated tomorrow. Stay away from him until he officially plays and makes it through a full game without any setbacks.

Yankees | Jacoby Ellsbury rests in rehab

Tue, 30 Jun 2015 18:53:31 -0700

New York Yankees OF Jacoby Ellsbury (knee) did not play in his minor-league rehab game for Class A Tampa Tuesday, June 30, as he is dealing with "general fatigue," according to manager Joe Girardi.

Fantasy Tip: It's uncertain if this changes the original plan for Ellsbury to return from the 15-day disabled list Friday. FantasyScore players will want to see him officially return and prove his health in a game or two without any setbacks before trusting him again.

Yankees | CC Sabathia to stay in rotation

Tue, 30 Jun 2015 13:07:06 -0700

New York Yankees SP CC Sabathia is not going to be removed from the starting rotation, according to general manager Brian Cashman. Sabathia lost again to the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim Monday, June 29, and is 3-8 with a 5.59 ERA on the season. His 1.40 WHIP puts him 83rd among 99 qualified starting pitchers. The 19 home runs he's given up in 15 starts is tops in the American League and second in all of baseball. Sabathia has allowed nine home runs in his last five starts. He has only one win in the last six weeks, and he's allowed 27 hits and 17 earned runs in 23 innings since.

Fantasy Tip: Based on Sabathia's ($4,300, 8.6% of cap) performance this year, he's not worth rostering in shallow mixed leagues, and you should shy away from him on FantasyScore for the time being. At age 34, his velocity and skills are quickly declining, and it's unlikely we'll see a return to his previous dominant form ever again.

Yankees | Nathan Eovaldi to start Wednesday

Tue, 30 Jun 2015 06:15:32 -0700

New York Yankees SP Nathan Eovaldi will start Wednesday, July 1, against the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim. SP Adam Warren has been shifted to the bullpen.

Fantasy Tip: Eovadi ($5,100, 10.2% of cap) has a 4.81 ERA and isn't much of an option on FantasyScore right now.

Yankees | Jacoby Ellsbury hitless in rehab

Mon, 29 Jun 2015 22:51:42 -0700

New York Yankees OF Jacoby Ellsbury (knee) was hitless in three at-bats with a strikeout in a minor-league rehab game Monday, June 29, for Class A Tampa.

Fantasy Tip: Ellsbury ($4,600; or 9.2% of cap) might return Friday, but FantasyScore players should avoid him in all leagues until he can officially return and prove his health in at least one full game without any setbacks.

Yankees | Stephen Drew sitting out

Mon, 29 Jun 2015 16:31:39 -0700

New York Yankees 2B Stephen Drew is not in the starting lineup against Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim SP C.J. Wilson Monday, June 29.

Fantasy Tip: Jose Pirela ($2,600, 5.2% of cap) will start at second base in place of Drew. Pirela has only two hits in his last six games and is not a great option for owners on FantasyScore.

Yankees | Jacoby Ellsbury could return Friday

Mon, 29 Jun 2015 16:27:37 -0700

New York Yankees OF Jacoby Ellsbury (knee) will play rehab games for the next three days before being re-evaluated. He could return from the disabled list at the earliest Friday, July 3.

Fantasy Tip: Ellsbury ($4,600, 9.2% of cap) should be returned to all traditional lineups when he's back from the DL. However, you might want to play it safe with him initially on FantasyScore until he gets his legs back underneath him. Chris Young ($3,000, 6.0% of cap) will lose valuable playing time when Ellsbury returns and will basically return to his role as the fourth outfielder and go back to mainly starting against lefties. He can still be very useful as a sleeper pick against certain lefties, as he has mashed southpaws this season.
