New York Yankees DH Alex Rodriguez is not in the starting lineup Sunday, July 24. OF Aaron Hicks is starting in right field and batting ninth against San Francisco Giants SP Jeff Samardzija Sunday.
Fantasy Tip: There is very limited fantasy value with both Rodriguez and Hicks, as they own a .619 and .544 OPS, respectively. They're both strictly depth options in cavernous mixed and AL-only leagues, and Hicks is a desperation start in daily contests Sunday.

New York Yankees OF Jacoby Ellsbury, 1B Mark Teixeira, C Brian McCann and SS Didi Gregorius are out of the starting lineup against San Francisco Giants left-handed SP Madison Bumgarner Friday, July 22. OF Aaron Hicks is in center field and hitting eighth, 2B Rob Refsnyder is at second and batting sixth, C Austin Romine is behind the dish and hitting seventh and 2B Ronald Torreyes is at the 6 and batting ninth. Also, 2B Starlin Castro moves up to the two-hole.
Fantasy Tip: All four players sitting are left-handed, which makes since with MadBum being one of the tougher southpaws in the league. None of Hicks, Refsnyder, Romine or Torreyes should be anything more than desperation daily stabs in the tough matchup. Castro, however, might be a contrarian play with the move up the batting order given the fact he's also been swinging a hot stick.

New York Yankees DH Alex Rodriguez is not in the starting lineup Wednesday, July 20. OF Aaron Hicks draws into the lineup in right field and is batting ninth against Baltimore Orioles SP Yovani Gallardo Wednesday.
Fantasy Tip: Rodriguez started five consecutive games and went 2-for-16 with four walks. It's basically what to expect from the veteran, and he's no longer a viable fantasy asset outside of cavernous mixed and AL-only setups. Hicks is down to a .197/.261/.301 slash line, and at this point, he's nothing more than a desperation fantasy option.
