From -- thru  --


Yankees | Yanks bullpen dominating

Tue, 19 Apr 2016 16:02:18 -0700

New York Yankees RPs Andrew Miller and Dellin Betances have struck out 16 of the last 18 batters they've faced, and New York's relievers lead the majors with a 13.37 K/9 rate. Miller and Betances have combined to strike out 27 of the 41 batters they've faced (65.9%). Miller and Betances will be bumped back an inning when RP Aroldis Chapman returns from his suspension May 9.

Fantasy Tip: This is exactly why both Miller and Betances should be owned in all fantasy formats, even if they aren't seeing save chances once Chapman returns.

Yankees | Andrew Miller to pitch with brace

Fri, 01 Apr 2016 16:00:10 -0700

New York Yankees RP Andrew Miller (hand) will likely pitch with a protective device on his glove hand. He had a cast on his hand Thursday, March 31, but Miller has full range of motion with his fingers.

Fantasy Tip: Miller dodged a bullet having his non-pitching hand fractured by a line drive Wednesday. He'll be able to pitch through the injury and will enter the season as the Yankees' closer with Aroldis Chapman suspended the first 30 games. Miller is a nice SP2 for fantasy and will remain valuable in all formats once Chapman returns.

Yankees | Andrew Miller to be ready

Fri, 01 Apr 2016 09:26:41 -0700

New York Yankees RP Andrew Miller (hand) was cleared by a hand surgeon in Miami Friday, April 1, and it looks like he will be able to pitch on opening day, according to Yes Network's Jack Curry.

Fantasy Tip: Miller definitely dodged a bullet here with the injury coming to his non-throwing hand. It shouldn't affect his pitching at all, and his fantasy owners can breathe a sigh of relief to begin the year. Miller is a solid RP2 to begin the season filling in as the Yankees' closer with Aroldis Chapman suspended for the first 30 games.

Yankees | Andrew Miller planning to pitch

Thu, 31 Mar 2016 07:43:06 -0700

Updating previous reports, New York Yankees RP Andrew Miller (hand) plans to pitch through the chip fracture in his right hand.

Fantasy Tip: Miller's injury is to his glove hand, which means it's possible he could play through the injury. However, it could worsen from simply receiving a throw from the catcher, which he could do in excess of 20 or 30 times every appearance. Wait and see what the team says. Miller is a good RP2 in fantasy that figured to close the first month of the season while Aroldis Chapman serves his suspension. Dellin Betances would benefit significantly if Miller misses time, and he, too is worth an RP2 grab for his ratios and strikeouts.

Yankees | Andrew Miller has chip fracture

Wed, 30 Mar 2016 16:56:19 -0700

Updating previous reports, New York Yankees RP Andrew Miller's (wrist) CT scan showed a chip fracture in his right wrist, according to a source. Miller will visit with a hand specialist to determine the next step. Until then, the Yankees won't know if he'll need to open on the disabled list.

Fantasy Tip: Ouch. Bad news for the Yanks and Miller owners, as he was expected to fill in as the closer with Aroldis Chapman suspended. Miller shouldn't be outright dropped in any fantasy formats, as he has value even when he's not closing. Stay tuned for updates on his timetable, though, and stash him if you can. Dellin Betances should now be counted on in the ninth inning to start the year. His fantasy stock is on the rise, and you should run to scoop him up if he's available in your league.

Yankees | X-rays negative for Andrew Miller

Wed, 30 Mar 2016 14:47:15 -0700

Updating a previous report, New York Yankees RP Andrew Miller's (wrist) X-rays on his bruised right wrist were negative. He still has a CT scan scheduled.

Fantasy Tip: In the event Miller requires a stint on the disabled list, Dellin Betances will take care of the ninth inning to start the season. However, it looks like Miller is not facing a lengthy injury absence, if he misses time at all. Stay tuned for updates, but both Miller and Betences should be owned in the majority of seasonal leagues, and they'll both retain value when Aroldis Chapman returns to the closer role after his 30-game suspension.

Yankees | Andrew Miller has bruised wrist

Wed, 30 Mar 2016 12:38:13 -0700

Updating a previous report, New York Yankees RP Andrew Miller (wrist) is being diagnosed with a bruised right wrist, but he is going to Tampa for X-rays and a CT scan.

Fantasy Tip: It looks like Miller may have dodged a bullet, but stay tuned for updates on his exams. Even if Miller doesn't have a serious injury, he could open the season on the DL with opening day less than a week away. Aroldis Chapman is suspended for the first 30 games, and Miller was expected to fill in in closing situations. If Miller must miss time, Dellin Betances would be next in line. His fantasy stock is on the rise right now.

Yankees | Andrew Miller injured Wednesday

Wed, 30 Mar 2016 11:40:06 -0700

New York Yankees RP Andrew Miller (wrist) was hit by a line drive on his right wrist and left the game Wednesday, March 30. Miller threw his hat to the ground when he walked off.

Fantasy Tip: Miller's reaction doesn't look good, but you'll want to wait for a diagnosis before overreacting to the situation. More potential good news: it was Miller's right hand and not his pitching hand. Still, a severe injury could send shock waves across fantasy baseball, as Miller was expected to fill in for Aroldis Chapman (suspended) to start the year. Dellin Betances' fantasy value could be on the rise in the short term if Miller's injury is serious.

Yankees | Andrew Miller to fill in as closer

Wed, 02 Mar 2016 06:15:49 -0800

New York Yankees RP Andrew Miller will "absolutely" be the team's closer while RP Aroldis Chapman is suspended the first 30 games of the season, according to general manager Brian Cashman.

Fantasy Tip: Miller already had RP3 value, but this further enhances it a bit. However, it's not a huge leap. Miller was 8-for-8 in save chances last April. At best, you're probably adding 10 save opportunities to his value. If you've already drafted him, you might start fielding offers to see if someone overvalues that window of save chances.

Yankees | Closer role wide open for Yankees

Tue, 29 Dec 2015 11:04:33 -0800

New York Yankees RP Andrew Miller was told by general manager Brian Cashman the organization plans to keep Miller, RP Aroldis Chapman and RP Dellin Betances, and the closer role will be determined at a later date.

Fantasy Tip: Chapman faces a likely suspension to start the season, so he is likely out of the closer competition initially, and until there is an official announcement of who will pitch in the ninth inning it is difficult to project their respective fantasy values firmly. All three will return exceptional ratios with plenty of tallies in the strikeout column, so with the potential for saves added to the mix, there is a lot to like about all three after the top-tier closers come off the board. Stay tuned for additional updates.
