Yankees | Brett Gardner still out

Fri, 17 Apr 2015 13:33:13 -0700

New York Yankees OF Brett Gardner (wrist) remains out of the starting lineup Friday, April 17. OF Chris Young is starting in left field in his place yet again and hitting eighth in the batting order against Tampa Bay Rays SP Nathan Karns.

Fantasy Tip: Young ($2,200, 4.4% of cap) has two home runs and a .318 average (7-for-22) to start the season. He's typically an all-or-nothing type of player with plenty of power, but he's a dice roll at FantasyScore, especially hitting at the bottom of the lineup.

Yankees | Brett Gardner remains out Wednesday

Wed, 15 Apr 2015 13:03:36 -0700

New York Yankees OF Brett Gardner (wrist) remains out of the starting lineup Wednesday, April 15. OF Chris Young is starting in left field and hitting eighth in the batting order against Baltimore Orioles SP Bud Norris.

Fantasy Tip: Gardner could return to the lineup later this week if he can swing a bat. Young ($2,200, 4.4% of cap) has appeared in each of the team's last seven games, and he's hitting .333 with two homers in the early going. Young isn't the biggest fantasy name out there, but while he's seeing consistent playing time, he's worth a look as a cheap FantasyScore option against Norris in a hitter's park.

Yankees | Carlos Beltran out Friday

Fri, 10 Apr 2015 13:29:43 -0700

New York Yankees OF Carlos Beltran is not in the starting lineup against Boston Red Sox SP Wade Miley Friday, April 10. In his place, OF Chris Young is starting in right field and hitting seventh in the lineup.

Fantasy Tip: Young ($2,200, 4.4% of cap) is cheap at FantasyScore, but he's a low-end outfield option with a full slate of games Friday evening. Young hit just .149 with two home runs in 74 at-bats against left-handers in 2014.

Yankees | Three NY starters sitting Thursday

Thu, 09 Apr 2015 12:29:29 -0700

New York Yankees OF Brett Gardner, C Brian McCann and 2B Stephen Drew are not in the starting lineup against Toronto Blue Jays SP Daniel Norris Thursday, April 9. OF Chris Young is starting in left field and hitting sixth, C J.R. Murphy is catching and hitting seventh and INF Gregorio Petit is starting at the keystone and hitting eighth.

Fantasy Tip: With the Yanks facing a southpaw, it makes sense that Gardner, McCann and Drew - all lefty swingers - have the day off. Young ($3,000, 6.0% of cap), Murphy ($2,000, 4.0% of cap) and Petit don't move the needle at all at FantasyScore.
