Yankees | Several Yankees return to lineup

Sat, 23 Jul 2016 11:17:59 -0700

New York Yankees OF Jacoby Ellsbury, C Brian McCann, SS Didi Gregorius and 1B Mark Teixeira will start against San Francisco Giants SP Johnny Cueto Saturday, July 23. Ellsbury will bat second, McCann willbat fourth, Gregorius will bat sixth and Teixeira will bat seventh.

Fantasy Tip: It makes sense that Joe Girardi wants all of his normal left-handed batters in the lineup against hard-throwing right hander Johnny Cueto. Ellsbury and McCann are probably the better bets for daily lineups, especially McCann, who has three homers and four runs batted in in 10 career at-bats against Cueto.

Yankees | Four Yankees regulars sitting Friday

Fri, 22 Jul 2016 13:34:21 -0700

New York Yankees OF Jacoby Ellsbury, 1B Mark Teixeira, C Brian McCann and SS Didi Gregorius are out of the starting lineup against San Francisco Giants left-handed SP Madison Bumgarner Friday, July 22. OF Aaron Hicks is in center field and hitting eighth, 2B Rob Refsnyder is at second and batting sixth, C Austin Romine is behind the dish and hitting seventh and 2B Ronald Torreyes is at the 6 and batting ninth. Also, 2B Starlin Castro moves up to the two-hole.

Fantasy Tip: All four players sitting are left-handed, which makes since with MadBum being one of the tougher southpaws in the league. None of Hicks, Refsnyder, Romine or Torreyes should be anything more than desperation daily stabs in the tough matchup. Castro, however, might be a contrarian play with the move up the batting order given the fact he's also been swinging a hot stick.

Yankees | Brian McCann sitting Sunday

Sun, 17 Jul 2016 13:48:17 -0700

New York Yankees C Brian McCann will not start Sunday, July 17, against Boston Red Sox SP David Price. C Austin Romine is batting ninth in McCann's place.

Fantasy Tip: McCann earns the night off with lefty Price on the hill. Romine (.265-3-16) is a decent low-cost alternative in DFS leagues, as Romine has had a decent year in his own right.

Yankees | Mark Teixeira returns to action Sunday

Sun, 10 Jul 2016 08:09:33 -0700

New York Yankees 1B Mark Teixeira (knee) is back in the starting lineup against Cleveland Indians SP Carlos Carrasco Sunday, July 10. In addition, INF/OF Rob Refsnyder will play right field and bat eighth, while C Austin Romine starts behind the plate and bats ninth. C Brian McCann is receiving the day off.

Fantasy Tip: Texeira is batting just .185 during the month of July and is 1-for-11 in his career against Carrasco, so he is not a recommended fantasy option. Refsnyder and Romine should both be viewed as productive sources of salary cap relief in DFS.

Yankees | Three Yankees regulars sitting

Tue, 05 Jul 2016 14:29:51 -0700

New York Yankees OF Jacoby Ellsbury, SS Didi Gregorius and C Brian McCann are not in the starting lineup against Chicago White Sox left-handed SP Carlos Rodon Tuesday, July 5. OF Aaron Hicks is in center field and hitting eighth, 2B Rob Refsnyder draws in at second base and is batting seventh and C Austin Romine is catching and hitting ninth.

Fantasy Tip: The Yanks are resting some of their lefty hitters with a southpaw on the bump. All three replacements won't be all that attractive in DFS this evening. Hicks might be the most appealing as a deep sleeper, but he's batting .203 on the season with three homers and 16 RBI.

Yankees | Three Yankees out Saturday

Sat, 02 Jul 2016 16:40:10 -0700

New York Yankees C Brian McCann, OF Carlos Beltran (hamstring) and 3B Alex Rodriguez are out of the lineup Saturday, July 2. OF Rob Refsnyder is hitting seventh, and C Austin Romine is hitting eighth.

Fantasy Tip: A-Rod has been out while the Yanks are in San Diego sans the DH. Refsnyder is hitting .290 and worth basement consideration against Drew Pomeranz. Romine isn't worth using in DFS.

Yankees | Brian McCann enjoying power surge

Fri, 01 Jul 2016 23:53:56 -0700

New York Yankees C Brian McCann went 1-for-3 with a walk, two runs scored and a solo home run against the San Diego Padres on Friday, July 1. It was McCann's fifth home run in his last nine games.

Fantasy Tip: Over his last nine games, McCann is 12-for-33 (.364) with five home runs, eight RBI and nine runs scored. The veteran catcher's value is in his pop, so make sure you have him active while he's swinging a hot bat.

Yankees | Brian McCann battling knee woes

Fri, 01 Jul 2016 08:02:21 -0700

New York Yankees C Brian McCann (knee) said he has battled tendonitis in his left knee off and on for a while, but it flared up Wednesday, June 29.

Fantasy Tip: Mark DeRosa had a great breakdown of McCann's swing on MLB Network. He demonstrated how McCann was flailing his hips open, with his backside out, and he was pulling off of pitches during his slump. The knee injury could be a reason why. Regardless, McCann hit two homers Wednesday and remains a high-end catcher in fantasy.

Yankees | Brian McCann homers twice Wednesday

Wed, 29 Jun 2016 19:55:15 -0700

New York Yankees C Brian McCann went 2-for-3 with two home runs, four RBI, three runs scored and two walks versus the Texas Rangers Wednesday, June 29.

Fantasy Tip: McCann was batting just .207 through 58 at-bats during the month of June entering play Wednesday, so perhaps this is the start of him beginning to break out of a slump. Despite his power, he should be viewed as a mediocre catching option in seasonal fantasy leagues and a hit-or-miss option for DFS.

Yankees | Brian McCann not starting Tuesday

Tue, 28 Jun 2016 13:21:25 -0700

New York Yankees C Brian McCann is not in the lineup Tuesday, June 28, against the Texas Rangers. McCann is replaced by C Austin Romine, who will bat ninth against Rangers SP Cole Hamels.

Fantasy Tip: McCann, a lefty, is sitting on the bench because Hamels is a lefty as well. Sit McCann on your bench if you can. As for Romine, he is worth a start in daily leagues because of his five hits, two doubles, and seven runs batted in over the last seven games.
