Yankees | Trio of lefties out for Yanks

Fri, 31 Jul 2015 16:37:35 -0700

New York Yankees OF Brett Gardner, C Brian McCann and 2B Stephen Drew are all out of the lineup against Chicago White Sox SP Carlos Rodon Friday, July 31. OF Chris Young is starting in right field and hitting second, C J.R. Murphy is behind the plate and hitting seventh and SS Brendan Ryan is at second base and hitting eighth.

Fantasy Tip: The only one worth considering at FantasyScore is really Young ($3,000, 6.0% of cap), who excels against lefties. He's in a prime lineup spot to capitalize and return great profit for his daily owners, too. Murphy ($1,700, 3.4% of cap) and Ryan ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) are strictly desperation sources of salary cap relief.

Yankees | Brett Gardner stays hot

Thu, 09 Jul 2015 14:27:38 -0700

New York Yankees OF Brett Gardner went 3-for-5 with a solo home run during the Yankees' 6-2 win over the Oakland Athletics Thursday, July 9.

Fantasy Tip: Garnder ($5,800, 11.6% of cap) is up to 10 home runs and 40 RBI this season to go along with his .303/.381/.490 slash line. He is no longer the stolen base threat he once was, but he has added more power and is now a five-category contributor. FantasyScore players can start him with confidence in favorable matchups.

Yankees | Brett Gardner sitting vs. Astros

Thu, 25 Jun 2015 13:59:01 -0700

New York Yankees OF Brett Gardner is not in the starting lineup Thursday, June 25. OF Chris Young is starting in center field and batting first against Houston Astros SP Dallas Keuchel Thursday.

Fantasy Tip: Make sure to avoid Gardner ($4,800, 9.6% of cap) in all fantasy formats Thursday. He is currently scorching hot over a seven-game stretch with 12 runs, four home runs, 10 RBI and a .500/.543/1.000 slash line, and he should be viewed as a potential value play by FantasyScore players. Young ($2,500, 5.0% of cap) has a .371/.435/.694 slash line against southpaws, so he is an upside play in daily contests Thursday.

Yankees | Mason Williams will not start

Tue, 16 Jun 2015 14:28:16 -0700

New York Yankees OF Mason Williams is not in the starting lineup against Miami Marlins SP David Phelps Tuesday, June 16. OF Brett Gardner will start in center field and is batting first, while OF Chris Young will start in left field and is batting seventh in the lineup.

Fantasy Tip: Williams ($1,800, 3.6% of cap) is probably receiving a day off after playing in the last several games. Gardner ($4,800, 9.6% of cap) has picked up at least one hit in seven of his last nine games and could be a solid option on FantasyScore. Young ($2,500, 5.0% of cap) is hitting. 222 in June and is not a great option on FantasyScore.

Yankees | Jacoby Ellsbury has sprained knee

Wed, 20 May 2015 10:24:28 -0700

New York Yankees OF Jacoby Ellsbury (knee) is dealing with a sprained right knee that has landed him on the disabled list. He hurt himself swinging in the fourth inning of the game Tuesday, May 19, and he went for an MRI exam. The Yankees could move OF Brett Gardner to center field, OF Chris Young could play center field. OF Slade Heathcott, who was recalled from the minors, is another option in center.

Fantasy Tip: There's no timetable for Ellsbury's ($5,900, 11.8% of cap) return, but given his history with nagging ailments, you should plan for the worst and a stay beyond the 15 days on the DL. Young ($3,200, 6.4% of cap) should now see regular playing time, boosting his value in deep mixed and AL-only leagues. Young is a fine weapon for FantasyScore lineups against southpaws. Heathcott is strictly an AL-only commodity in deep setups.

Sat, 16 May 2015 13:57:39 -0700

Fantasy Tip: Gardner ($5,100, 10.2% of cap) has at least on hit in all but one of his last 10 games. Gardner dealt with neck soreness last week, and he is likely being given a rare rest day as the Yankees take on a left-handed pitcher.
