New York Yankees news, rumors and injuries

Texas Rangers 1B Mitch Moreland is not in the starting lineup Thursday, July 30. OF Ryan Rua draws into the lineup in left field, and he is batting sixth against New York Yankees SP CC Sabathia Thursday.
Fantasy Tip: Make sure to avoid Moreland ($4,800, 9.6% of cap) in all fantasy formats Thursday. With a lefty on the hill, it is an opportunity to provide him a night off. Rua ($2,300, 4.6% of cap) is batting .197 this season, and he should be viewed as nothing more than a low-priced flier for FantasyScore contests Thursday.

Fantasy Tip: Odor ($5,300, 10.6% of cap) has been scorching hot since rejoining the Rangers, and he should be owned in all fantasy formats. Rosales ($2,400, 4.8% of cap) should be viewed as nothing more than a low-priced flier for FantasyScore contests Thursday.

Fantasy Tip: With Stephen Drew not cutting it at the keystone, Ackley ($2,700, 5.4% of cap) could immediately become the team's starting second baseman. Ackley didn't fare much better with Seattle (.215/.270/.366 with six home runs in 186 at-bats), but this trade could give him everyday playing time, and the move to a short porch in right field in the Bronx means his fantasy value is on the rise.

Updating a previous report, New York Yankees SP Ivan Nova (elbow) is dealing with post-Tommy John issues, and there is nothing new or damaging in his right arm. He is scheduled to make his next start.
Fantasy Tip: Nova ($5,300, 10.6% of cap) is 3-3 with a 3.38 ERA, 1.30 WHIP and a weak 4.7 K/9 in six starts (34 2/3 innings) since returning from Tommy John surgery. Starters returning from TJS typically go through a transition period in which their velocity and control are shaky, so Nova may not be back to full form until 2016. He's purely a matchup play on FantasyScore for the rest of the season.

Updating previous reports, New York Yankees SP Michael Pineda (forearm) is dealing with a Grade 1 forearm strain. RP Andrew Miller dealt with the same injury this year and missed a month of action. Pineda will land on the disabled list, but the Yankees think he will pitch again this year.
Fantasy Tip: Pineda ($7,400, 14.8% of cap) should be held onto in all formats. It's unclear who will replace him in the rotation, but it could be top pitching prospect Luis Severino, who is 7-0 with a 1.91 ERA at Class AAA this year. Severino should be owned in keeper formats, and he's worth stashing now in AL-only and deep mixed leagues, too.
Thu, 30 Jul 2015 11:16:37 -0700
Correcting a previous report, New York Yankees SP CC Sabathia is expected to start against the Texas Rangers Thursday, July 30. SP Bryan Mitchell was believed to be making the start, but Sabathia will be pushed ahead a day with Mitchell offering long-relief protection, if needed.
Fantasy Tip: Sabathia ($5,500, 11.0% of cap) has allowed four earned runs or more in four of his last seven starts with a 5.63 ERA and 30 strikeouts through 40 innings during the stretch. He should be viewed as a high-risk, high-reward No. 2 starting pitcher flier by FantasyScore players Thursday. He is a desperation start in year-long formats, too.
Thu, 30 Jul 2015 11:06:09 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Severino is a top pitching prospect and sports a 1.91 ERA, a 0.93 WHIP and a 7.3 K/9 through 61 1/3 innings over 11 starts with Class AAA Scranton/Wilkes-Barre this season. Fantasy owners in AL-only, cavernous mixed and keeper/dynasty leagues should take a long look at adding the youngster in case he is called up. He is worth monitoring in the majority of formats, too.
Thu, 30 Jul 2015 10:53:33 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Mitchell won't be available to use on FantasyScore. It's a good opportunity to stack Rangers hitters in your daily lineups tonight.
Thu, 30 Jul 2015 10:50:16 -0700
Fantasy Tip: This doesn't mean that Pineda ($7,400, 14.8% of cap) won't miss considerable time or avoid a trip to the DL. Stay tuned and sit tight if you own him. Bryan Mitchell will be called up to start against the Texas Rangers tonight. He won't be available on FantasyScore.
Thu, 30 Jul 2015 10:35:15 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Make sure to remove Pineda ($7,400, 14.8% of cap) from your FantasyScore lineups tonight if you had him in there. It's unclear how serious his injury is, so stay tuned for more updates. If it's an extended absence for Pineda, the Yanks could call on top pitching prospect Luis Severino. Severino should be owned in dynasty and keeper formats, and he'd be appealing to those in deeper mixed leagues if he joins the rotation.
Thu, 30 Jul 2015 10:23:26 -0700
Fantasy Tip: This could be very troubling news for the Yankees if the injuries to Pineda ($7,400, 14.8% of cap) and Nova ($5,300, 10.6% of cap) turn out to cost them significant time. Keep an eye out for updated information on them. Could the Yankees call up top pitching prospect Luis Severino to take a rotation spot? Those in dynasty and keeper leagues should stash him now.
Wed, 29 Jul 2015 15:11:54 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Jones ($2,100, 4.2% of cap) does have four of his five home runs this year against right-handed pitchers, but he's not typically a very strong option for daily gamers unless he's at home hitting in the Bronx with the short porch in right field. Texas is a hitter-friendly environment, too, but Jones should still be seen as a sleeper pick on FantasyScore.
Wed, 29 Jul 2015 14:57:58 -0700
Detroit Tigers SP David Price is now firmly on the trade block as the Tigers informed teams that they will be sellers at the deadline Wednesday, July 29. The Los Angeles Dodgers, Houston Astros, Toronto Blue Jays, San Francisco Giants and Chicago Cubs are also looking to upgrade their rotations and figure to be interested in Price. The Yankees have insisted that they won't give up OF Aaron Judge, 1B Greg Bird, SS Jorge Mateo or SP Luis Severino, though.
Fantasy Tip: Price ($9,100, 18.2% of cap) will be a free agent after this year, so there's a very good chance he'll be dealt before Friday. A move to New York, or any other team, wouldn't drastically affect his fantasy value as a top-tier starter.
Tue, 28 Jul 2015 18:03:18 -0700
New York Yankees SP Chris Capuano allowed five runs and five walks while retiring just two batters in his start Tuesday, July 28, against the Texas Rangers. He is the first starter to allow at least five runs and walk five batters while lasting less than an inning since former Atlanta Braves SP Jaret Wright in 2004.
Fantasy Tip: FantasyScore players who rolled the dice on Capuano ($3,200, 6.4% of cap) are certainly displeased. Yet again, it shows that it pays not to skimp on pitching, as it makes or breaks you most days in DFS.
Tue, 28 Jul 2015 16:47:30 -0700
New York Yankees SS Brendan Ryan is starting at second base for the second straight day and is hitting ninth against Texas Rangers left-handed SP Martin Perez. 2B Stephen Drew is out for the second straight day.
Fantasy Tip: It appears as if Ryan ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) may be entering into a platoon with Drew at the keystone, with Ryan facing southpaws. Ryan provides little offensive help to his fantasy owners, and a spot at the bottom of the lineup doesn't make him attractive at all to daily gamers.
