Yankees | Brian McCann, Brett Gardner starting

Sun, 29 May 2016 08:07:30 -0700

New York Yankees C Brian McCann and OF Brett Gardner are back in the starting lineup against Tampa Bay Rays SP Jake Odorizzi Sunday, May 29, while 3B Chase Headley and OF Carlos Beltran (shoulder) are receiving the day off. OF Aaron Hicks will play right field and bat seventh, while INF Ronald Torreyes will play third base and bat ninth.

Fantasy Tip: Hicks is just 7-for-45 (.156) away from Yankee Stadium this season but Torreyes could be worth taking a flier on in daily contests because of his .407 mark (11-for-27) on the road.

Yankees | Brett Gardner, Brian McCann resting

Sat, 28 May 2016 10:11:10 -0700

New York Yankees OF Brett Gardner and C Brian McCann are not in the starting lineup against Tampa Bay Rays SP Matt Moore Saturday, May 28. OF Aaron Hicks will bat second and play left field, while C Austin Romine starts behind the plate and bats ninth.

Fantasy Tip: Gardner and McCann are receiving the day off because the club is facing a left-handed pitcher. Romine is batting .277 with a home run and five RBI in 47 at-bats and makes a productive source of cap relief for DFS players who typically punt the catcher position. On the other hand, Hicks is just 6-for-41 at the plate away from Yankee Stadium and is not a great fantasy option.

Yankees | Several Yanks regulars resting Saturday

Sat, 21 May 2016 11:12:29 -0700

New York Yankees C Brian McCann, OF Brett Gardner and SS Did Gregarious are not in the starting lineup against Oakland Athletics SP Sean Manaea Saturday, May 21. OF Aaron Hicks will bat sixth and play left field, 2B/OF Rob Refsnyder will play right field and bat seventh and C Austin Romine will start behind the plate and bat eighth. In addition, 3B Chase Headley is back in the starting lineup to play the hot corner and will bat fifth, while INF Ronald Torreyes bats ninth and plays shortstop.

Fantasy Tip: Of the replacements, Refsnyder is the player with the most offensive upside for DFS purposes. The 25-year-old hit .302 with two home runs and five RBI in 43 at-bats last season and was hitting .293 through 34 games for Class AAA Scranton/Wilkes-Barre this year.

Yankees | Brett Gardner, Brian McCann out

Mon, 16 May 2016 15:31:00 -0700

New York Yankees OF Brett Gardner and C Brian McCann are not in the starting lineup against Arizona Diamondbacks left-handed SP Robbie Ray Monday, May 16. OF Aaron Hicks is starting in left field and is hitting sixth, while C Austin Romine is doing the catching and is batting eighth.

Fantasy Tip: The switch-hitting Hicks is barely over the Mendoza Line this year and is batting just .167 with no home runs and six strikeouts in 30 at-bats against lefties in 2016. Both he and Romine are low-end dart throws in daily fantasy leagues tonight.

Yankees | Aaron Hicks leading off vs. Chicago

Fri, 13 May 2016 12:49:33 -0700

New York Yankees OF Aaron Hicks is leading off against Chicago White Sox SP Chris Sale Friday, May 13. OF Brett Gardner has dropped from first to seventh in the lineup Friday.

Fantasy Tip: The swap likely has more to do with Hicks being a switch hitter, and Gardner being a left-handed batter, as Sale has limited left-handed hitters to a .206 on-base percentage. Neither hitter is a strong fantasy option Friday, but Gardner and Hicks are trending in opposite directions. Gardner is mired in a 6-for-38 slump, whereas Hicks is 9-for-25 with six runs, two home runs, five RBI and a 1.019 OPS through his past eight games. Hicks could soon be a viable starter in all fantasy formats, and he should be owned in all deeper settings.

Yankees | Brett Gardner returns to lineup

Fri, 06 May 2016 13:56:43 -0700

New York Yankees OF Brett Gardner (elbow) is back in the starting lineup and is hitting second against Boston Red Sox SP Rick Porcello Friday, May 6.

Fantasy Tip: Given the fact that Gardner was dealing with an elbow ailment and his underwhelming numbers this year (.247/.371/.358), it seems only appropriate that you should fade him in daily leagues. It's not out of the question to bench Gardner elsewhere, too, until he shows better returns.

Yankees | Brett Gardner nursing elbow injury

Thu, 05 May 2016 13:26:08 -0700

Updating a previous report, New York Yankees OF Brett Gardner (elbow) said his elbow is still sore from being hit by a pitch during the game Wednesday, May 4, but he hopes to be available to pinch hit Thursday, May 5.

Fantasy Tip: Gardner has just five hits through his last 33 at-bats (.152) over nine games, and manager Joe Girardi already said he expected to be without the outfielder for a few days. Make plans to be without Gardner in fantasy leagues for the immediate future, and it isn't out of the question to bench him until he shows signs of life at the dish in mixed leagues.

Yankees | Brett Gardner, Chase Headley sitting

Thu, 05 May 2016 12:52:52 -0700

New York Yankees OF Brett Gardner and 3B Chase Headley are not in the starting lineup Thursday, May 5. OF Aaron Hicks is starting in left field and batting seventh, while 2B Ronald Torreyes is at the hot corner and is hitting ninth against Baltimore Orioles SP Kevin Gausman. 2B Starlin Castro moves up to the two-hole.

Fantasy Tip: Gardner and Headley are really struggling right now and could see more bench time in the near future while the Yanks look to get going offensively. Downgrade them both in deep mixed and AL leagues. Hicks and Torreyes don't move the needle much for daily gamers, while Castro's value receives a slight boost with the move up the lineup.

Yankees | Brett Gardner out next few days?

Thu, 05 May 2016 12:25:43 -0700

New York Yankees OF Brett Gardner may not play for the next couple of days, manager Joe Girardi hinted Wednesday, May 4. OF Ben Gamel, who was hitting .286 with a .709 OPS at Class AAA Scranton/Wilkes-Barre, was called up Thursday, May 5.

Fantasy Tip: It's unclear if Gardner is hurt of the Yankees are choosing to go in another direction with the struggling outfielder. Gardner has only five hits in his last 33 at-bats (.152) over nine games, and he's becoming increasingly hard to rely on in deep mixed and AL-only leagues. Check back for updates on Gardner's situation.
