Yankees | Four Yankees regulars sitting Friday

Fri, 22 Jul 2016 13:34:21 -0700

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.

Yankees | Starlin Castro tees off vs. O's

Tue, 19 Jul 2016 19:33:42 -0700

New York Yankees 2B Starlin Castro went 2-for-4 with a double, two-run home run and two runs scored Tuesday, July 19, against the Baltimore Orioles. He also drove in four runs in the victory.

Fantasy Tip: Castro's hot July continues, as he is 17-for-48 (.354) over the past 12 games to raise his average from .246 to .261 just since July 3. He remains a must-start in all fantasy leagues despite a subpar batting average this season.

Mon, 04 Jul 2016 15:43:16 -0700

New York Yankees 2B Starlin Castro went 4-for-4 against the Chicago White Sox Monday, July 4.

Fantasy Tip: Castro broke a four-game hitless streak with his performance Monday. He has posted solid numbers so far this season and should be a decent starting option in most mixed leagues.

New York Yankees OF Carlos Beltran (hamstring) and 2B Starlin Castro are out of the lineup Thursday, June 30, with OF Aaron Hicks hitting eighth and 2B Ronald Torreyes hitting ninth.

Fantasy Tip: Neither Hicks nor Torreyes provide enough offensive certainty to use as a flyer against A.J. Griffin today.

Fantasy Tip: Refsnyder is hitting .438 with two RBI over the last seven days and will continue to see solid playing time. He should be a decent starting option in most daily fantasy leagues.

Yankees | Three regulars sitting for Yanks

Thu, 02 Jun 2016 14:21:59 -0700

New York Yankees OF Brett Gardner (rest), C Brian McCann (rest) and SS Didi Gregorius (rest) are not in the lineup Thursday, June 2, against Detroit Tigers SP Matt Boyd. OF Aaron Hicks is getting a start in center field and batting ninth, C Austin Romine is behind the plate and hitting seventh, while 2B Rob Refsnyder is entering the lineup in the No. 8 hole with 2B Starlin Castro taking over shortstop.

Fantasy Tip: It's not much of a surprise to see the Yankees sitting some of their regulars, as this was supposed to be a day off for the club. Instead, they're making up a game that was rained out in April. Either way, none of the replacements inserted into the lineup for tonight's contest deserve any consideration for daily fantasy games. The three starters sitting should be back Friday.

Yankees | Starlin Castro takes a seat

Wed, 01 Jun 2016 14:41:07 -0700

New York Yankees 2B Starlin Castro is not in the starting lineup Wednesday, June 1. 2B Rob Refsnyder is starting at the keystone and is batting ninth against Toronto Blue Jays SP Aaron Sanchez.

Fantasy Tip: After a strong start in April, Castro tanked in May (.200-4-9) to drop his season average to .245. Benching him if you have other options right now might be the best approach. Refsnyder makes decent contact and uses all fields, but unless he finds an avenue to regular playing time, he's strictly a depth option in AL-only leagues.

Rays | Jake Odorizzi takes hard-luck loss

Sun, 29 May 2016 13:37:12 -0700

Tampa Bay Rays SP Jake Odorizzi gave up only one hit and struck out six over seven innings Sunday, May 29, against the New York Yankees, but that one hit was a two-run shot off the bat of SS Starlin Castro, resulting in a 2-1 setback.

Fantasy Tip: Odorizzi did not allow a baserunner through six frames but ran into trouble in the seventh when he issued a one-out walk to Brett Gardner and served up Castro's decisive home run. The 26-year-old is somehow only 2-3 despite a 3.36 ERA and 1.10 WHIP, but he stands a decent shot at earning his third win of the season Friday in a road start against the Minnesota Twins.

Yankees | Starlin Castro carries offense Sunday

Sun, 29 May 2016 13:15:47 -0700

New York Yankees 2B Starlin Castro slugged a two-run home run to provide his team with all the runs it would need in a 2-1 win over the Tampa Bay Rays on Sunday, May 29.

Fantasy Tip: Castro's blast to center was the only hit the Yankees could muster all day long off Jake Odorizzi and two Tampa Bay relievers, but Nathan Eovaldi and New York's vaunted bullpen made it stand up. The 26-year-old Dominican is batting .211 this month and only had one hit in his previous 23 at-bat before delivering his seventh-inning shot. Castro batted .305 in May and hits in the heart of the order of a good offense, so owners should keep him in their lineups and ride out his slump until further notice.

Yankees | Starlin Castro tattoos sixth HR

Thu, 26 May 2016 17:29:37 -0700

New York Yankees 2B Starlin Castro went 1-for-4 with his sixth home run of the season Thursday, May 26, against the Toronto Blue Jays. He finished with the team's only run scored and RBI for the game.

Fantasy Tip: Castro has cooled off after a hot April, but he's still been arguably the most consistent hitter in the Yankees lineup. As long as he can maintain his production, he'll continue to be one of the more useful second basemen in fantasy despite his lack of speed on the basepaths.
