Yankees | Stephen Drew not starting

Sat, 11 Apr 2015 07:54:56 -0700

New York Yankees 2B Stephen Drew is not in the starting lineup Saturday, April 11.

Fantasy Tip: Gregorio Petit ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) will start at second base with Drew sitting out. Owners on FantasyScore should not consider using Petit and should be able to find better options.

Yankees | Didi Gregorius riding pine Friday

Fri, 10 Apr 2015 13:31:36 -0700

New York Yankees SS Didi Gregorius is not in the starting lineup against Boston Red Sox SP Wade Miley Friday, April 10. SS Stephen Drew is starting at shortstop and hitting eighth in the lineup, while INF Gregorio Petit is starting at second base and hitting ninth.

Fantasy Tip: Both Drew ($2,100, 4.2% of cap) and Petit ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) are both weak options at FantasyScore Friday with plenty of other middle infield candidates to choose from that give you more offensive upside.

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.

Yankees | Stephen Drew to be a backup?

Wed, 01 Apr 2015 18:59:32 -0700

With New York Yankees SS Stephen Drew and SS Didi Gregorius each healthy, manager Joe Girardi said Wednesday, April 1, that Drew will be the backup to Gregorius.

Fantasy Tip: Drew will have some FantasyScore appeal when he draws a start, but it might take an injury to Gregorius for a regular role to open.

Yankees | Stephen Drew struggling this spring

Sun, 22 Mar 2015 19:55:58 -0700

New York Yankees 2B Stephen Drew went 0 for 3 and struck out twice Sunday, March 22, and he is hitting .161 this spring.

Fantasy Tip: Drew is going to open the season as the starter at second base, but he could be replaced sooner rather than later and isn't likely to provide worthwhile fantasy numbers while he is starting.

Yankees | Stephen Drew a starter

Tue, 10 Mar 2015 09:42:08 -0700

New York Yankees SS Stephen Drew will officially be the team's starting second baseman to open the season, according to manager Joe Girardi. Drew hit just .162 in 2014, and the Yankees plan to have a short leash with Drew if he struggles early in the year, according to a source. 2Bs Jose Pirela and Robert Refsnyder aren't fighting for a starting spot, but they are battling to be the first called up if Drew struggles. Girardi doesn't think Drew will have a problem with the transition from shortstop to second base.

Fantasy Tip: Drew has virtually no upside as a fantasy asset, and he should not be considered in standard 12-team leagues, especially if his leash is short at second. If you're speculating in very deep mixed or AL-only leagues, Refsnyder is the better bet to make an impact as a middle infielder on your roster.

Yankees | Stephen Drew slated for 2B duties

Thu, 29 Jan 2015 09:46:22 -0800

New York Yankees SS Stephen Drew projects as "hopefully our everyday second baseman," according to general manager Brian Cashman. The Yankees are banking on SS Didi Gregorius being their full-time starting shortstop in 2015. Drew hit just .162 in 271 at-bats between the Boston Red Sox and the Yankees last year. "Hopefully, he can put last year behind him and be the player he was before then," Cashman said. "He has a history of being a really good player prior to a season that didn't play out the way anybody expected." Drew starting at second base could block 2Bs Jose Pirela and Robert Refsnyder from playing time.
