Fantasy Tip: Jones ($2,100, 4.2% of cap) is off to a slow start in 2015 with only two hits in 14 at-bats this season. Owners on FantasyScore likely will be able to find better options to use.

Yankees | Alex Rodriguez out Tuesday

Tue, 14 Apr 2015 12:51:42 -0700

New York Yankees 3B Alex Rodriguez is not in the starting lineup against Baltimore Orioles SP Miguel Gonzalez Tuesday, April 14. 1B Garrett Jones is serving as the designated hitter and is hitting sixth in the lineup.

Fantasy Tip: Jones ($2,100, 4.2% of cap) should be considered at FantasyScore as a low-priced option facing a right-handed pitcher. However, the wet weather in Baltimore may persuade you to look elsewhere Tuesday.

Yankees | No 1B for Alex Rodriguez now?

Tue, 17 Mar 2015 18:57:16 -0700

New York Yankees 3B Alex Rodriguez appears to be staying at third base this week in spring training. Manager Joe Girardi said he thought he would play Rodriguez at first base in spring training games this week, but indicated Tuesday, March 17, that might not happen "I'm not sure that I'll do it. We have (1B/OF Garrett Jones," Girardi said.

Fantasy Tip: It would be interesting to see A-Rod play a new position, and fantasy owners in standard formats wouldn't mind if he were able to squeeze in five regular season games for some new eligibility.

Yankees | Alex Rodriguez could platoon in DH role

Fri, 20 Feb 2015 14:05:51 -0800

New York Yankees 3B Alex Rodriguez could be stuck in a platoon at designated hitter this year with OF Garrett Jones facing right-handers and Rodriguez facing lefties. Historically, Rodriguez has been successful against lefties after struggling (.585 OPS in 50 at-bats) against them in 2013. In a best-case scenario, Rodriguez could serve as the backup to 3B Chase Headley, and he might also see some time at first base as a backup for 1B Mark Teixeira.

Fantasy Tip: Rodriguez is a giant question mark entering the 2015 season after sitting out all of last year on a suspension for performance-enhancing drugs. At age 39, he's not the same player he was in his prime, obviously, and he'll struggle to catch up to fastballs. However, he could provide some pop at the tail end of mixed league drafts to round out your rosters.
