Yankees | Jacoby Ellsbury sitting against BoSox

Wed, 02 Sep 2015 10:19:14 -0700

New York Yankees OF Jacoby Ellsbury is not in the lineup against Boston Red Sox left-handed SP Henry Owens Wednesday, Sept. 1. OF Chris Young will receive the start in left field, and he's batting second.

Fantasy Tip: Young ($3,400, 6.8% of cap) has cooled off at the plate lately in limited action, but he still has a .322/.385/.603 slash line with seven of his 14 home runs against lefties. Consider him when looking for value plays against a left-hander today.

Yankees | Chris Young batting second vs. Red Sox

Mon, 31 Aug 2015 12:56:19 -0700

New York Yankees OF Chris Young is starting in left field and batting second against Boston Red Sox SP Eduardo Rodriguez Monday, Aug. 31. OF Brett Gardner is not in the starting lineup Monday.

Fantasy Tip: Make sure to avoid Gardner ($4,600, 9.2% of cap) in all fantasy formats Monday. The veteran is struggling mightily, too, with a disappointing .200/.298/.250 slash line in August. Young ($3,400, 6.8% of cap) is a lefty specialist and owns a .331/.389/.619 line against southpaws for the season. He is a strong FantasyScore play Monday.

Yankees | Brett Gardner out of Tuesday lineup

Tue, 25 Aug 2015 12:49:14 -0700

New York Yankees OF Brett Gardner is not in the starting lineup Tuesday, Aug. 25, against the Houston Astros. The Yankees have OF Chris Young starting in left and batting second against Astros SP Dallas Keuchel.

Fantasy Tip: Gardner ($4,600, 9.2% of cap) has a .160 mark in the past week and has no hits in four at-bats against Keuchel. He does hit .288 against lefties, but three-fourths of his at-bats are against the right so this is the likely reason for his absence. Young ($3,400, 6.8% of cap) bats .353 against Keuchel so he is worth the gamble.

Yankees | Jacoby Ellsbury sitting vs. Cleveland

Fri, 21 Aug 2015 13:13:31 -0700

New York Yankees OF Jacoby Ellsbury is not in the starting lineup Friday, Aug. 21. OF Chris Young draws into the lineup and is batting seventh against Cleveland Indians SP Carlos Carrasco Friday.

Fantasy Tip: Make sure to avoid Ellsbury ($4,700, 9.4% of cap) in all fantasy formats Friday. The outfielder is 13-for-36 over his past eight games and beginning to heat up down the stretch. Young ($3,400, 6.8% of cap) is an extremely risky play at FantasyScore Friday. He owns an underwhelming .185/.242/.342 slash line against righties this season, and Carrasco ($8,000, 16.0% of cap) has allowed just five runs over his past four starts.

Yankees | Carlos Beltran sitting vs. Toronto

Fri, 14 Aug 2015 13:52:15 -0700

New York Yankees OF Carlos Beltran is not in the starting lineup Friday, Aug. 14. OF Chris Young is starting in right field and batting seventh against Toronto Blue Jays SP David Price Friday.

Fantasy Tip: Young ($3,700, 7.4% of cap) has been excellent against lefties this season with a .348/.408/.652 slash line against southpaws. He is a viable flier at FantasyScore Friday, but Price ($9,400, 18.8% of cap) is a tough draw on the mound. Make sure to avoid Beltran ($3,800, 7.6% of cap) in all formats. He hitting stride, though, and currently riding an eight-game hitting streak with two home runs.

Yankees | Jacoby Ellsbury sitting the bench

Wed, 12 Aug 2015 14:33:32 -0700

New York Yankees OF Jacoby Ellsbury is not in the starting lineup Wednesday, Aug. 12. OF Chris Young is starting in left field and hitting eighth against Cleveland Indians SP Danny Salazar.

Fantasy Tip: We don't recommend running with Young ($3,700, 7.4% of cap) on FantasyScore, as he's more of a lefty killer. Against righties, his triple slash line is considerably worse (.189/.237/.350). Ellsbury could use a day off; he's hitting .105 (4-for-38) with 14 strikeouts in August. You may want to consider benching him in traditional leagues until he picks it back up.

Yankees | Brett Gardner out of the lineup

Sat, 08 Aug 2015 08:17:54 -0700

New York Yankees OF Brett Gardner is not in the starting lineup against Toronto Blue Jays SP David Price Saturday, Aug. 8. OF Chris Young will start in left field and is batting second in the lineup.

Fantasy Tip: Gardner ($5,600, 11.2% of cap) probably is sitting out because the team is facing a left-handed pitcher. Young ($3,000, 6.0% of cap) is hitting .353 with seven home runs and 19 RBI against left-handed pitchers but may be a risky option against Price.

Yankees | Carlos Beltran sits against lefty

Thu, 06 Aug 2015 12:31:37 -0700

New York Yankees OF Carlos Beltran is not in the starting lineup against Boston Red Sox left-handed SP Eduardo Rodriguez Thursday, Aug. 6. OF Chris Young is starting in right field and hitting fifth.

Fantasy Tip: Young ($3,000, 6.0% of cap) is a notorious lefty killer and sports a triple slash line of .371/.432/.695 and and OPS of 1.127 with seven of his 13 home runs against southpaws in 2015. You definitely need to consider inserting him into your daily lineup tonight against Rodriguez.

Yankees | Chris Young has another big stat line

Tue, 04 Aug 2015 20:17:21 -0700

New York Yankees OF Chris Young went 3-for-4 with a three-run home run Tuesday, Aug. 4, against the Boston Red Sox. He finished with four runs scored, a walk and three RBIs.

Fantasy Tip: Young ($3,000, 6.0% of cap) is 8-for-20 (.400) with 10 runs scored, and eight RBIs over his past six games to raise his average from .257 to .268 just since July 27. He is a solid short-term FantasyScore option as long as he is running hot.

Yankees | Brett Gardner not starting Tuesday

Tue, 04 Aug 2015 12:56:30 -0700

New York Yankees OF Brett Gardner is not in the starting lineup Tuesday, Aug. 4, against the Boston Red Sox. OF Chris Young is in left field.

Fantasy Tip: Gardner ($5,600, 11.2% of cap) carries a .263 average and two home runs against left-handed pitching, and the Red Sox have Henry Owens on the hill on Tuesday. Young ($3,000, 6.0% of cap) is a solid cheaper play thanks to his .363-7-19 line against the left.
