Yankees | Carlos Beltran sitting

Tue, 28 Jul 2015 16:41:12 -0700

New York Yankees OF Carlos Beltran is not in the lineup against Texas Rangers left-handed SP Martin Perez Tuesday, July 28. OF Chris Young draws the start in right field and is hitting fifth.

Fantasy Tip: Young ($3,000, 6.0% of cap), who sports a triple slash line of .362/.413/.670 with six of his 11 home runs against left-handers, should always be in play as a FantasyScore value play when he's in the lineup against a lefty.

Yankees | Jacoby Ellsbury out Monday

Mon, 27 Jul 2015 16:33:29 -0700

New York Yankees OF Jacoby Ellsbury (shoulder) is not in the starting lineup Monday, July 27. OF Chris Young is starting in left field and hitting second against Texas Rangers left-handed SP Matt Harrison.

Fantasy Tip: Young ($3,000, 6.0% of cap) is about one of the most attractive value plays tonight on FantasyScore, especially with a smaller slate of games. Young sports a slash line of .374/.430/.692 with a 1.122 OPS and six of his 11 home runs against left-handers this year. Despite a good outing in his last start, it'll be Harrison's third start this year.

Yankees | Brett Gardner takes a seat

Sat, 25 Jul 2015 14:42:30 -0700

New York Yankees OF Brett Gardner is out of the lineup Saturday, July 25, with OF Chris Young hitting second.

Fantasy Tip: CY ($3,000, 6.0% of cap) has a .250-1-2 line in 40 July at-bats and isn't a strong start on FantasyScore.

Royals | Chris Young to face St. Louis

Wed, 22 Jul 2015 22:15:40 -0700

Kansas City Royals SP Chris Young takes the ball for the makeup game Thursday, July 23, against the St. Louis Cardinals. He worked six scoreless innings to beat the Cardinals May 20.

Fantasy Tip: Young ($6,600; or 13.2% of cap) had success against St. Louis before, but he is 1-2 with a 4.03 ERA in four outings in July and there is some risk for FantasyScore players.

Yankees | Carlos Beltran not in Tuesday lineup

Tue, 21 Jul 2015 13:49:05 -0700

New York Yankees OF Carlos Beltran is not starting Tuesday, July 21, against the Baltimore Orioles. OF Chris Young is batting instead.

Fantasy Tip: Beltran ($3,700, 7.4% of cap) is strictly in a numbers game here. He has a .111 batting average against Orioles pitcher Wei-Yin Chen, while Young ($3,000, 6.0% of cap) has a .250 mark. Young has one homer against Chen, so he may be worth a flyer.

Yankees | Garrett Jones out of the lineup

Sun, 12 Jul 2015 08:43:32 -0700

New York Yankees 1B Garrett Jones is not in the starting lineup against Boston Red Sox SP Wade Miley Sunday, July 12. OF Chris Young will start in right field and is batting fifth in the lineup.

Fantasy Tip: Jones ($2,100, 4.2% of cap) likely is sitting out with the team facing a left-handed pitcher. Young ($3,000, 6.0% of cap) is hitting .192 this month and has not recorded an RBI in his last 12 games. Owners on FantasyScore may want to look for better options to use in their lineups.

Yankees | Garrett Jones starting against Boston

Fri, 10 Jul 2015 14:02:29 -0700

New York Yankees 1B Garrett Jones is starting in right field and hitting sixth against Boston Red Sox SP Clay Buchholz Friday, July 10. OF Chris Young is sitting on the bench to start.

Fantasy Tip: Jones ($2,100, 4.2% of cap) has four of his five home runs this season against right-handed pitchers, but he's also hitting just .210 (13-for-62) away from the short porch in the Bronx. Also, Buchholz has been pitching very well of late. Jones is strictly a sleeper pick on FantasyScore.

Yankees | Chris Young out of the lineup

Sat, 04 Jul 2015 08:59:10 -0700

New York Yankees OF Chris Young is not in the starting lineup against Tampa Bay Rays SP Nathan Karns Saturday, July 4. OF Ramon Flores will start in left field and is batting sixth in the lineup.

Fantasy Tip: Young ($3,000, 6.0% of cap) has played in the last several games and likely is receiving a day off. Flores was recently called up by the team and should not be a fantasy option at this point.

Yankees | Chase Headley, Chris Young flip in order

Wed, 01 Jul 2015 14:37:01 -0700

New York Yankees 3B Chase Headley is batting second and OF Chris Young is batting seventh against Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim SP Matt Shoemaker Wednesday, July 1.

Fantasy Tip: Shoemaker has a 1.72 HR/9 and 14.7 percent HR/FB rate, so the Yankees have a homer-friendly matchup Wednesday. Neither Headley ($3,600, 7.2% of cap) or Young ($3,000, 6.0% of cap) are lineup locks for FantasyScore players, but they're worth a look if the price fits, especially Headley in the two-hole.

Yankees | Chris Young hit streak snapped

Sun, 28 Jun 2015 15:53:40 -0700

New York Yankees OF Chris Young had his hit streak snapped at 10 games on Sunday, June 28.

Fantasy Tip: Young ($2,500, 5.0% of cap) has a .272-10-25 line following Sunday's game, one home run off his 2014 total. He's finding regular playing time so that helps his FantasyScore value.
