Yankees | Timetable for Alex Rodriguez still TBD

Thu, 05 May 2016 16:30:22 -0700

New York Yankees 3B Alex Rodriguez's (hamstring) timetable for his return is still unknown. The club is waiting to see what the team doctor, Dr. Chris Ahmad, thinks about the veteran's hamstring.

Fantasy Tip: A-Rod is already on the disabled list, though it still has to be determined how long he'll be sidelined. While he remains out, the likes of Aaron Hicks and Dustin Ackley will get increased playing time, but both are struggling mightily at the plate and really can't be trusted right now to take up a starting spot on fantasy rosters.

Yankees | Brett Gardner nursing elbow injury

Thu, 05 May 2016 13:26:08 -0700

Updating a previous report, New York Yankees OF Brett Gardner (elbow) said his elbow is still sore from being hit by a pitch during the game Wednesday, May 4, but he hopes to be available to pinch hit Thursday, May 5.

Fantasy Tip: Gardner has just five hits through his last 33 at-bats (.152) over nine games, and manager Joe Girardi already said he expected to be without the outfielder for a few days. Make plans to be without Gardner in fantasy leagues for the immediate future, and it isn't out of the question to bench him until he shows signs of life at the dish in mixed leagues.

Yankees | Brett Gardner, Chase Headley sitting

Thu, 05 May 2016 12:52:52 -0700

New York Yankees OF Brett Gardner and 3B Chase Headley are not in the starting lineup Thursday, May 5. OF Aaron Hicks is starting in left field and batting seventh, while 2B Ronald Torreyes is at the hot corner and is hitting ninth against Baltimore Orioles SP Kevin Gausman. 2B Starlin Castro moves up to the two-hole.

Fantasy Tip: Gardner and Headley are really struggling right now and could see more bench time in the near future while the Yanks look to get going offensively. Downgrade them both in deep mixed and AL leagues. Hicks and Torreyes don't move the needle much for daily gamers, while Castro's value receives a slight boost with the move up the lineup.

Yankees | Brett Gardner out next few days?

Thu, 05 May 2016 12:25:43 -0700

New York Yankees OF Brett Gardner may not play for the next couple of days, manager Joe Girardi hinted Wednesday, May 4. OF Ben Gamel, who was hitting .286 with a .709 OPS at Class AAA Scranton/Wilkes-Barre, was called up Thursday, May 5.

Fantasy Tip: It's unclear if Gardner is hurt of the Yankees are choosing to go in another direction with the struggling outfielder. Gardner has only five hits in his last 33 at-bats (.152) over nine games, and he's becoming increasingly hard to rely on in deep mixed and AL-only leagues. Check back for updates on Gardner's situation.

Yankees| Jacoby Ellsbury celebrates milestone

Wed, 04 May 2016 21:47:29 -0700

New York Yankees OF Jacoby Ellsbury played in his 1,000th career game Wednesday, May 4, against the Baltimore Orioles, finishing 3-for-3 with a double, two walks and a run scored while also collecting two stolen bases.

Fantasy Tip: Ellsbury had a giant stat line, and he is 6-for-11 with three doubles and an RBI in three games during the month of May, raising his average from .235 to .271 since April 30.

Yankees | CC Sabathia uses changeup to dominate

Wed, 04 May 2016 21:45:48 -0700

New York Yankees SP CC Sabathia worked around six hits and two walks with six strikeouts over seven scoreless innings in a win against the Baltimore Orioles Wednesday, May 4. He used his changeup 20 times, recording eight outs on the pitch, including four strikeouts. He had thrown 36 changeups all season in his four other starts.

Fantasy Tip: Sabathia was impressive, and you can expect him to use him changeup a lot more in future starts based upon the successful results in this game. He is 2-2 with a 3.81 ERA, re-emerging as a must-start in AL-only fantasy formats, most mixed leagues and DFS.

Yankees | X-rays negative for Brett Gardner

Wed, 04 May 2016 21:45:05 -0700

New York Yankees OF Brett Gardner (elbow) was hit on the right elbow by a pitch Wednesday, May 4, against the Baltimore Orioles. X-rays were negative, and manager Joe Girardi said Gardner is hopeful he can swing a bat Thursday, May 5.

Fantasy Tip: Fantasy owners in leagues which allow daily moves might want to reserve him just in case, and DFS player should avoid him until he can officially return and prove his health in a full game without any lingering effects of the injury.

Yankees | Aaron Hicks enters lineup

Wed, 04 May 2016 14:29:15 -0700

New York Yankees OF Aaron Hicks is starting in right field and batting seventh against Baltimore Orioles SP Tyler Wilson Wednesday, May 4. OF Carlos Beltran is serving as the designated hitter.

Fantasy Tip: Hicks figures to benefit the most with more playing time with Alex Rodriguez (hamstring) on the DL with Beltran likely to serve as the main DH. Dustin Ackley could see more at-bats, too. Hicks is more known for his defense and has only two hits in 26 at-bats (.077) this year. Hicks and Ackley see a boost in fantasy value in the short term but are more of AL-only commodities for depth.

Yankees | Alex Rodriguez hits the DL

Wed, 04 May 2016 12:29:51 -0700

Updating a previous report, New York Yankees DH Alex Rodriguez (hamstring) was placed on the 15-day disabled list with a strained right hamstring Wednesday, May 4.

Fantasy Tip: Following a rebound season in 2015, Rodriguez has slumped to a .194/.275/.444 slash line through 80 plate appearances to start this season. His absence in the lineup will provide more at-bats for Aaron Hicks and Dustin Ackley, who both gain additional value in deep mixed and AL-only leagues. Slugger Aaron Judge has posted a .277/.320/.447 slash line with Class AAA Scranton/Wilkes-Barre and could push for a promotion if the Yankees continue to struggle offensively. It's a situation to monitor. Rodriguez is a stash candidate, but if your DL slots are maxed, don't fret cutting ties in the majority of seasonal leagues.

Yankees | Alex Rodriguez to undergo MRI

Wed, 04 May 2016 09:39:27 -0700

New York Yankees 3B Alex Rodriguez (hamstring) will undergo an MRI exam on his strained right hamstring Wednesday, May 4. Manager Joe Girardi said Rodriguez's injury is "worrisome." Rodriguez had gone 6-for-14 in the last six games but is hitting .203 on the season with five home runs and 12 RBI. 1B Nick Swisher could be called up if Rodriguez goes on the disabled list.

Fantasy Tip: Given A-Rod's age (40), an injury like this is likely to put him on the 15-day DL. Make alternate plans if you own him. Aaron Hicks or Dustin Ackley could see more at-bats as the DH if Rodriguez is sidelined for an extended period, but neither are very attractive outside of AL-only leagues.

Yankees | CC Sabathia looks to snap Camden skid

Tue, 03 May 2016 21:58:42 -0700

New York Yankees SP CC Sabathia will face the Baltimore Orioles Wednesday, May 4. He has a career 18-7 record lifetime against the Baltimore Orioles, but he is winless in his past eight starts at Oriole Park at Camden Yards.

Fantasy Tip: It's a good idea to reserve Sabathia in fantasy leagues which allow daily transactions, and steer far clear of Sabathia in DFS play, too.

Yankees | Luis Severino pounded in Balto.

Tue, 03 May 2016 21:57:47 -0700

New York Yankees SP Luis Severino allowed four runs and five hits over six innings in a loss Tuesday, May 3, against the Baltimore Orioles, slipping to 0-4. While he allowed just five hits, many of Baltimore's outs were hit hard. He also dropped two flips from 1B Mark Teixeira on defense.

Fantasy Tip: Opponents are hitting .333 against Severino this season, and that ranks third-to-last in the majors. He also has a 6.31 ERA over five starts, and another stinker or two could land him a trip to Scranton/Wilkes-Barre to iron out his problems. Fantasy owners should be concerned.

Yankees | Alex Rodriguez leaves game

Tue, 03 May 2016 18:57:46 -0700

New York Yankees 3B Alex Rodriguez (hamstring) was replaced by 2B Dustin Ackley in the team's game Tuesday, May 3. He appeared to tweak his hamstring running to first base in the fifth inning.

Fantasy Tip: The severity of the injury is unknown but the Yankees would be in real trouble if A-Rod has to miss any time. More information should be available after the game but in the meantime, Ackley will benefit the most for as long as Rodriguez is out. He's not worth picking up in most leagues, however, considering he's just 1-for-16 on the year thus far.

Yankees | Aroldis Chapman set to return soon

Tue, 03 May 2016 17:48:24 -0700

New York Yankees RP Aroldis Chapman is expected to make two more appearances in the Gulf Coast League before Monday, May 9, when his 30-game suspension is set to expire. Manager Joe Girardi said Chapman would get the call, should the Yankees enter the ninth inning with a lead on that night.

Fantasy Tip: This is all very positive news for his fantasy owners, as it looks like Chapman will get to close right away, rather than wait a period of time to be eased back in. While the Yankees have struggled thus far through the season's first month, Chapman should still be one of the best closers to own in the league.

Yankees | Chase Headley won't be benched

Mon, 02 May 2016 13:41:22 -0700

New York Yankees 3B Chase Headley or any of the other Yankees starters won't be benched, according to general manager Brian Cashman. New York has only scored 81 runs on the year, which is tied for the third fewest in all of baseball.

Fantasy Tip: Headley is hitting a measly .156 (10-for-64) to begin the year with no home runs and two RBI. He shouldn't be owned anywhere besides AL-only leagues as corner infield depth, and he could start losing playing time quickly if he doesn't turn things around.
