New York Yankees INF Jayson Nix (hamstring) is expected to be activated from the disabled list Tuesday, July 30.
Fantasy Tip: Nix could mix in at third base with Brent Lillibridge, but his playing time will be sporadic, and he doesn't warrant attention unless you're in a very deep AL-only league.

New York Yankees INF Brent Lillibridge will likely see more time at third now that 3B Luis Cruz (knee) is on the disabled list. Lillibridge had a costly error in the game Tuesday, July 23, but made up for it by driving in the winning run against the Texas Rangers in the ninth inning.
Fantasy Tip: Lillibridge is a short-term solution to your hot corner needs only in AL leagues. David Adams could be brought up to split time with him, and Jayson Nix (hamstring) should return soon, too.

The New York Yankees re-signed INF/OF Brent Lillibridge to a major league deal.
Fri, 21 Jun 2013 16:11:01 -0700
The New York Yankees acquired INF/OF Brent Lillibridge from the Chicago Cubs Friday, June 21, in exchange for a player to be named or cash considerations.
Fantasy Tip: Lillibridge's versatility will be useful in New York, who are really dealing with depth issues on the left side of their infield with Derek Jeter (ankle) and Alex Rodriguez (hip) out until after the All-Star break. Lillibridge could challenge David Adams and Jayson Nix for playing time at either shortstop or third base. Pick up Lillibridge in AL-only leagues.

Chicago Cubs OF Brent Lillibridge cleared waivers and was outrighted to the minors Thursday, April 18.
Tue, 16 Apr 2013 13:43:14 -0700
The Chicago Cubs claimed 3B Cody Ransom off waivers from the San Diego Padres Tuesday, April 16, and designated RP Hisanori Takahashi and INF/OF Brent Lillibridge for assignment to make room for RPs Kevin Gregg and Kameron Loe.
Fantasy Tip: The Cubs bullpen is now basically down to three closing options after Takahashi was cut: Shawn Camp, James Russell and Carlos Marmol. Right now, Dale Sveum is using some sort of committee between Camp and Russell, but it's conceivable that Marmol could earn the job back if he performs well in less stressful situation. Grab Marmol if you're desperate and willing to live with what could be another roller coaster ride if he pitches in the ninth again.

The Chicago Cubs have purchased the contracts of OF Brent Lillibridge and RP Hisanori Takahashi.

Chicago Cubs 2B Darwin Barney (knee) will not be able to play Monday, April 1, because he suffered a deep cut on his knee that needed five stitches. Barney may have to go on the 15-day disabled list if the doctors do not think the cut can heal while he plays. OF Brent Lillibridge likely will start at second base on opening day.
Fantasy Tip: Owners will have to monitor the situation over the next day to see if Barney only misses a few days or needs to be placed on the disabled list. Lillibridge and 3B Luis Valbuena could fill in at second base if Barney misses time but both likely would only be short-term options in National League-only leagues.
