Sat, 23 May 2015 07:22:48 -0700

Fantasy Tip: McCann ($4,500, 9.0% of cap) likely is just receive a day off after playing the last few games. Murphy ($1,900, 3.8% of cap) has seen only limited playing time this season and is not a great option for owners on FantasyScore.

Yankees | Brian McCann sitting out

Sat, 16 May 2015 14:08:56 -0700

New York Yankees C Brian McCann isn't starting Saturday, May 16, against the Kansas City Royals. C John Ryan Murphy will start at catcher and hit ninth in the order.

Fantasy Tip: McCann ($4,500, 9.0% of cap) went 0-for-7 in his last two games and he has only one multi-hit game in his last 15 games. FantasyScore owners should be staying away until McCann busts out of the slump.

Yankees | Brian McCann in lineup

Sun, 10 May 2015 07:27:44 -0700

New York Yankees C Brian McCann is back in the lineup Sunday, May 10, against the Baltimore Orioles.

Fantasy Tip: McCann ($4,500, 9.0% of cap) was given the day off in favor of John-Ryan Murphy Saturday but draws back in against Orioles RHP Bud Norris. All three of McCann's home runs this season have come against righties, and he should be considered as a high-upside FantasyScore option.

Sat, 09 May 2015 08:59:50 -0700

New York Yankees C Brian McCann is not in the starting lineup Saturday, May 9. C J.R. Murphy will be the starting catcher for the Yankees.

Fantasy Tip: McCann ($4,500, 9.0% of cap) probably is receiving a day off and should return to the lineup in the next day or two. Murphy ($1,700, 3.4% of cap) is only hitting .227 with one RBI this season and is not a great option on FantasyScore.

Yankees | Brian McCann not starting

Mon, 04 May 2015 13:15:01 -0700

New York Yankees C Brian McCann is not in the starting lineup Monday, May 4. C J.R. Murphy is starting behind the plate and hitting eighth in the batting order against Toronto Blue Jays SP R.A. Dickey.

Fantasy Tip: Murphy ($1,700, 3.4% of cap) has five hits in 19 at-bats this season with one RBI. Ryan is purely a deep sleeper for a cheap price at FantasyScore. He'll help save valuable bucks at other positions, however.

Yankees | David Price has been owned by Yanks duo

Wed, 22 Apr 2015 15:13:03 -0700

New York Yankees C Brian McCann and OF Jacoby Ellsbury have gone 7-for-14 with three home runs and 16-for-49 with a home run, four doubles and two triples, respectively, against Detroit Tigers SP David Price. Price is pitching against the Yankees Wednesday, April 22.

Fantasy Tip: Over analyzing past batter vs. pitcher statistics can be costly, especially with Price looking dialed in to start the season. Price has allowed a single earned run through 22 1/3 innings thus far. It might not be the best night to overvalue Ellsbury ($5,200, 10.4% of cap) and McCann ($4,200, 8.4% of cap) based on their previous success against Price, especially at their cap hits.

Yankess | Brian McCann reaches three times

Sun, 19 Apr 2015 06:46:21 -0700

New York Yankees C Brian McCann went 3-for-4 with a run and two RBI during New York's 9-0 win over the Tampa Bay Rays Saturday, April 18.

Fantasy Tip: It has been a slow start for McCann ($4,200, 8.4% of cap), so supplying some offense Saturday is encouraging, and hopefully kick-starts his season. It is worth noting March and April have historically been the slowest offensive months for McCann throughout his career. Expect a modest rebound from the veteran backstop. He should still be held out of FantasyScore lineups outside of favorable matchups until he fully turns the corner with the twig, though.
