Fantasy Tip: Nova is on track to return some time next month, and as always you will want to monitor his progress once he's back in active duty.
Sat, 02 May 2015 08:10:43 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Petit has not had much success at the plate this season and is entering the game with a .192 batting average. Petit should not be used in most fantasy leagues.
Sat, 02 May 2015 08:07:41 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Drew ($2,100, 4.2% of cap) probably is not playing since the team is facing a left-handed starter. Gregorio Petit will start at second base but is not a great option for fantasy owners.
Sat, 02 May 2015 08:07:08 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Young ($3,500, 7.0% of cap) is off to a solid start to his season with a .305 batting average, five home runs and 11 RBI. He does have only two hits in his last six games but could still be a solid option for owners on FantasyScore.
Sat, 02 May 2015 07:59:04 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Beltran ($2,800, 5.6% of cap) has had some problems at the plate this season, so he likely is receiving a day off. Chris Young ($3,500, 7.0% of cap) will take his place and could be a starting option on FantasyScore.
Fri, 01 May 2015 19:03:08 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Rodriguez ($4,500, 9.0% of cap) has slowed down a bit after a hot start, but he still has six homers and a .557 slugging percentage. His power potential makes him a high-risk, high-reward option at FantasyScore.

Fantasy Tip: Make sure to avoid Rodriguez ($4,500, 9.0% of cap) in all fantasy formats Friday. He is rewarding those who took a speculative leap of faith with him this season, though. He has 13 runs, five home runs and 13 RBI, although his batting average is just .232. Jones ($2,100, 4.2% of cap) is off to a miserable start and just 5-for-27 at the dish. Consider him a low-priced flier for FantasyScore contests, but you should aim higher at first base.

New York Yankees 3B Alex Rodriguez went 0-for-6 with four strikeouts in a loss Wednesday, April 29, and he is 5-for-36 (.139) since April 17, when he hit two home runs. The four-strikeout game was just his fifth four-strikeout game of his career and first since 2008. He remains one home run shy of tying Willie Mays for fourth place on the all-time home run list with 660.
Fantasy Tip: Rodriguez's ($4,500, 9.0% of cap) slump of late is leading his owners to wonder whether his quick start was a mirage. It remains to be seen, but until he picks things back up, it might be a good idea to avoid him at FantasyScore, depending on the matchup. Trying to get career homer No. 660 out of the way could be causing him to press at the plate, too.

Fantasy Tip: Betances flipped the switch after spring training once the regular season arrived. After a dismal camp that saw his velocity down, he has bounced back to strike out 17 and walk seven in 11 1/3 scoreless frames in April. His velocity is back up again, too, which should comfort his owners, even though he's currently the eighth-inning setup man to Andrew Miller.

New York Yankees SP Masahiro Tanaka (forearm, wrist) landed on the disabled list with a sore wrist and forearm strain, and manager Joe Girardi is worried about his pitcher's long-term health. However, Girardi wouldn't speculate as to whether Tanaka's recent injuries were related to the partially torn ulnar collateral ligament that he is dealing with.
Fantasy Tip: You should be pretty worried about Tanaka ($7,800, 15.6% of cap) if you own him in any leagues, too. You won't have to worry about using him at FantasyScore for a month. Stash him in a DL spot and look on the waiver wire for pitching replacements. Chase Whitley ($3,000, 6.0% of cap) will be a low-priced sleeper in daily games now that he's in the starting rotation. He had a fine first outing against the Tampa Bay Rays in his season debut last night.

New York Yankees SP Michael Pineda is making the start against the Tampa Bay Rays Wednesday, April 29, in place of SP Masahiro Tanaka (forearm, wrist), who landed on the 15-day disabled list. Pineda beat the Rays April 19, and he is 2-1 with a 3.23 ERA in five career starts against them. He's also 4-1 with a 1.69 ERA in eight home starts and 9-3 with a 2.58 ERA in 13 career April starts.
Fantasy Tip: Pineda ($6,100, 12.2% of cap) has allowed three runs or less in three of his four starts this year, and he's sporting an ERA of 3.86. He should be considered a strong start today against the Rays, who are around the middle of the pack in most offensive categories in the American League.

Fantasy Tip: It's just a rest day for him against a lefty. Gregorio Petit ($1,600, 3.2% of your cap) is in there, but he's not a worthwhile start on FantasyScore at this stage.
Wed, 29 Apr 2015 09:19:27 -0700
Fantasy Tip: It's just a rest day for McCann. J.R. Murphy ($1,600, 3.2% of your cap) is in the lineup but shouldn't be used on FantasyScore.
Wed, 29 Apr 2015 07:29:36 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Young ($2,200, 4.4% of your cap) has cooled off after a fast start. He is 5-for-23 (.217) the last seven days, and his window for usage on FantasyScore has passed for now.
Tue, 28 Apr 2015 18:19:26 -0700
Updating a previous report, New York Yankees SP Chase Whitley started Tuesday, April 28, against the Tampa Bay Rays, and he is expected to remain in the rotation while SP Masahiro Tanaka (forearm, wrist) is sidelined.
Fantasy Tip: Whitley has struggled going deep into games at the big league level and the minors, so FantasyScore owners shouldn't expect him to suddenly start ripping off quality starts. Avoid him unless he somehow puts it together and starts pitching effectively.
