From -- thru  --


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 | Jacoby Ellsbury out vs. lefty

Thu, 26 May 2016 11:01:52 -0700

New York Yankees OF Jacoby Ellsbury is not in the starting lineup against Toronto Blue Jays SP J.A. Happ Thursday, May 26. OF Aaron Hicks is starting in center field and is hitting second.

Fantasy Tip: Hicks is batting .205 (18-for-88) with two home runs and 10 RBI on the year. That includes a .162 average with no home runs and four RBI against left-handers. Despite the nice lineup position, Hicks remains a low-end DFS flyer.

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 | Carlos Beltran out with no DH

Tue, 17 May 2016 16:24:08 -0700

New York Yankees OF Carlos Beltran is not in the starting lineup in a National League park Tuesday, May 17. OF Aaron Hicks is starting in right field and is batting eighth against Arizona Diamondbacks SP Zack Greinke.

Fantasy Tip: Hicks, a switch-hitter, is barely over the Mendoza Line this year (.206) and has two home runs and eight RBI in his 68 at-bats. He's really only an option in AL-only leagues for depth, and he makes for a player to avoid at a cheap cost in daily formats against Greinke.

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 | Jacoby Ellsbury not ready

Sat, 14 May 2016 08:34:48 -0700

New York Yankees OF Jacoby Ellsbury (hip) is not in the starting lineup against Chicago White Sox SP Jose Quintana Saturday, May 14. OF Aaron Hicks is starting in center field, while OF Carlos Beltran will start in right field. C Austin Romine will serve as the designated hitter and is batting ninth.

Fantasy Tip: Hicks and Beltran have posted solid numbers over the last seven days and can be used in daily fantasy leagues. Romine has gone 4-for-13 with two RBI in May and may be a decent option in two-catcher leagues.

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 | Still no Jacoby Ellsbury

Thu, 12 May 2016 12:27:33 -0700

New York Yankees OF Jacoby Ellsbury (hip) remains out of the starting lineup Thursday, May 12. OF Aaron Hicks is in center field and is batting sixth against Kansas City Royals SP Ian Kennedy.

Fantasy Tip: Ellsbury is expected to return to the lineup sometime this weekend, so stay patient. However, you may want to give him a few games to get his bearings back. Ellsbury has been a disappointment aside from his nine steals in 12 attempts. Hicks should continue to see decent playing time as long as Alex Rodriguez is out, but he's hitting only .216 (11-for-51) with two home runs and doesn't carry much fantasy value outside of AL-only leagues right now.

Yankees | Jacoby Ellsbury still out

Wed, 11 May 2016 14:05:22 -0700

New York Yankees OF Jacoby Ellsbury (hip) is not in the starting lineup against Kansas City Royals SP Yordano Ventura Wednesday, May 11. OF Aaron Hicks will start in center field, while OF Ben Gamel will start in right field and is batting ninth in the lineup.

Fantasy Tip: Gamel has not receive much playing time this season and is not a great fantasy option for owners.
