Cleveland Indians SP Carlos Carrasco was ejected in the fourth inning for hitting New York Yankees 3B Kevin Youkilis after giving up a home run to 2B Robinson Cano. He allowed seven earned runs and seven hits in 3 2/3 innings before departing.
Fantasy Tip: Carrasco served a six-game suspension for plunking Kansas City Royals 1B Billy Butler in 2011, and it is likely he'll be punished again since he is not a first-time offender.

Opposing pitchers continue to throw the ball down and away to New York Yankees 2B Robinson Cano, and he has managed just two hits in his first 15 at-bats this season. It mirrors the struggles he had in the 2012 postseason.
Fantasy Tip: Cano has seen 59 pitches this season, and 43 have either been on the outer-third of the plate, or out of the strike zone, away. Cano figures to straighten out the problem, but a cold start from one of their only healthy stars is part of the reason the Yankees are off to such a slow start.

Updating an earlier report, New York Yankees 2B Robinson Cano hired CAA as his new agents, in part because of their affiliation with Roc Nation, an entertainment/marketing company founded by rapper Jay-Z.
Fantasy Tip: This could be good news for Yankees fans. Jay-Z is a well-known Yanks fan, whereas Scott Boras' strategy is to test free agency.

New York Yankees 2B Robinson Cano fired his agent, Scott Boras, and will seek new representation.
