Yankees | Brian McCann receives day off

Mon, 25 Apr 2016 14:15:54 -0700

New York Yankees C Brian McCann is not in the starting lineup against Texas Rangers SP Cesar Ramos Monday, April 25. C Austin Romine will start at catcher and is batting ninth in the lineup.

Fantasy Tip: Romine likely is in the lineup because the Yankees are facing a left-handed pitcher. Romine is hitting .250 with one RBI so far this season, but owners in most leagues should be able to find a better option to use.

Yankees | Brian McCann, Didi Gregorius resting

Thu, 21 Apr 2016 12:27:56 -0700

New York Yankees C Brian McCann and SS Didi Gregorius are not in the starting lineup against Oakland Athletics left-handed SP Rich Hill Thursday, April 21. C Austin Romine is doing the catching and hitting eighth, while 3B Ronald Torreyes is at the keystone and batting ninth.

Fantasy Tip: Torreyes has produced with the bat in limited opportunities this year (6-for-12 with a double and triple), but he'll remain a low-end middle infield commodity in daily formats Thursday. Romine is nothing more than a desperation source of salary cap relief.

Sat, 16 Apr 2016 08:06:56 -0700

New York Yankees C Brian McCann is not in the starting lineup against Seattle Mariners SP Felix Hernandez Saturday, April 16. C Austin Romine will start at catcher and is batting ninth in the lineup.

Fantasy Tip: Romine has only one hit in his seven at-bats this season and probably should be avoided in all fantasy leagues.

Yankees | Brian McCann back in there

Thu, 14 Apr 2016 12:41:55 -0700

New York Yankees C Brian McCann (toe) is back in the starting lineup against Toronto Blue Jays SP Marcus Stroman Thursday, April 14.

Fantasy Tip: You'll want to return McCann to all of your traditional starting lineups Thursday. However, in daily formats you may want to pass on McCann. He's coming off the injury and is facing Toronto's ace, who he is just 2-for-13 against in his career.

Yankees | Three Yanks regulars sitting

Wed, 13 Apr 2016 14:26:00 -0700

New York Yankees OF Brett Gardner, SS Didi Gregorius and C Brian McCann (toe) are not in the starting lineup Wednesday, April 13. OF Aaron Hicks is in left field and hitting second, 3B Ronald Torreyes is at shortstop and hitting eighth, while C Austin Romine is the catcher and is batting ninth against Toronto Blue Jays SP J.A. Happ.

Fantasy Tip: McCann injured his toe last night but the injury isn't serious. Expect to see him back in the lineup for the Yankees' next game. Torreyes and Barnes can probably be avoided in all fantasy formats, but Hicks has some promise in a terrific lineup spot as a daily sleeper against a hittable lefty in Happ.

Yankees | Brian McCann leaves game early

Sun, 13 Mar 2016 13:26:13 -0700

New York Yankees C Brian McCann (knee) left the spring training game early Sunday, March 13, after he was hit above the kneecap by a pitch. Manager Joe Girardi said McCann should be fine moving forward.

Fantasy Tip: McCann could miss a game or two because of the injury, but it does not appear that McCann is dealing with a serious injury. McCann likely will be a middle-round option in most mixed leagues and should be able to post solid numbers if healthy.

Yankees | Jacoby Ellsbury out for wild-card game

Tue, 06 Oct 2015 13:20:22 -0700

New York Yankees OF Jacoby Ellsbury is not starting the American League wild-card game Tuesday, Oct. 6, against the Houston Astros. OF Chris Young is in his place. Two fellow lefties, OF Brett Gardner and C Brian McCann, are in the lineup.

Fantasy Tip: Ellsbury ($4,900, 9.8% of cap) has a .253-2-11 line against lefties, which isn't much worse than his luck against right-handers. Young ($3,200, 6.4% of cap) hits .300 against Astros SP Dallas Keuchel with two doubles and a triple, so he may have some more luck.
