Yankees | Brian McCann sitting out

Sat, 01 Aug 2015 13:34:27 -0700

New York Yankees C Brian McCann is out of the starting lineup Saturday, Aug. 1, against the Chicago White Sox and LHP John Danks. C J.R. Murphy will start behind the plate and hit seventh in the order.

Fantasy Tip: Murphy ($1,700, 3.4% of cap) is hitting a modest .250 against left-handed pitching this season, but he'll offer cap relief for FantasyScore owners willing to punt the catcher position.

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 | Brian McCann out again vs. lefty

Thu, 25 Jun 2015 14:14:18 -0700

New York Yankees C Brian McCann is not in the starting lineup Thursday, June 25. C J.R. Murphy is starting behind the plate and batting seventh against Houston Astros SP Dallas Keuchel Thursday.

Fantasy Tip: Make sure to avoid McCann ($4,400, 8.8% of cap) in all formats Thursday. He is having a solid campaign with 29 runs, 11 home runs, 45 RBI and a .275/.342/.483 slash line. Murphy ($1,700, 3.4% of cap) plays sparingly and offers little upside, so FantasyScore players should likely aim higher, especially against Keuchel. At best, Murphy is a desperation source of cap relief.
