Oakland Athletics OF Yoenis Cespedes (thumb) is back in the lineup Friday, July 25, in place of OF Coco Crisp (rest), who has the day off.

Fri, 25 Jul 2014 13:48:05 -0700

New York Yankees 1B Mark Teixeira (back) is not in the lineup Friday, July 25.

FANTASY TIP: There's hope Tex will avoid a stint on the disabled list, but it's not a sound bet if you're a fantasy player. Line up contingency plans if you already haven't.

Fri, 25 Jul 2014 13:42:29 -0700

Yankees | Chris Capuano starting Saturday

Fri, 25 Jul 2014 13:38:47 -0700

New York Yankees SP Chris Capuano will start Saturday, July 26, against the Toronto Blue Jays. SP Chase Whitley will lose his rotation spot and pitch out of the bullpen.

FANTASY TIP: Capuano hasn't started a game all season, so his innings should be limited. It could take a few starts to stretch his arm out. He is worth a speculative flier in AL-only formats and could develop into a matchup-related deep-mixed play. Obviously, Whitley's value plummets, and he isn't worth a roster spot, at this point.
