New York Yankees RP Dellin Betances recorded his third win in relief Saturday, May 24.
Fantasy Tip: He has a 1.20 ERA, a 0.73 WHIP and 26 strikeouts in 15 innings this month. He should be scooped up in most rotisserie leagues as his numbers are simply too good to ignore despite not figuring in many save chances.

New York Yankees RPs Shawn Kelley and Adam Warren are unavailable to pitch Thursday, April 10. Kelley has worked in three of the last four games, and Warren has also pitched three times in the last four nights. Manager Joe Girardi said he's unsure who would pitch in a save situation tonight. He's likely to mix and match with RPs Matt Thornton, Dellin Betances and Cesar Cabral.
Fantasy Tip: Thornton is the most likely option because of his experience, but he may not be available if Girardi has to use him for matchups in a tight spot before the ninth. It's not worth playing the waiver wire on this situation just for tonight.

New York Yankees RP Shawn Kelley will not be available Tuesday, April 8, manager Joe Girardi said. Girardi doesn't know who'll close today, but Kelley will be the primary option for saves moving forward with David Robertson (groin) on the disabled list.
Fantasy Tip: Not surprising, since Kelley was the primary eighth-inning guy beforehand. Behind him, it's a dice roll depending on matchups, availability and Girardi's feel. Adam Warren should be your first non-Kelley try, but Dellin Betances along with southpaws Matt Thornton and Vidal Nuno all have a chance to earn credit here.

The New York Yankees will place RP David Robertson (groin) on the disabled list with a Grade 1 groin strain.
Fantasy Tip: A Grade 1 strain is the least severe, so it's entirely possible that Robertson will be ready to go when he's eligible to be activated. Shawn Kelley should be your first target if you're searching for save opps on the waiver wire, but Adam Warren, Matt Thornton, Vidal Nuno and even Dellin Betances might factor in if Joe Girardi is playing the matchups in the ninth. For what it's worth, Kelley had the save Monday in the team's home opener.

New York Yankees RP Dellin Betances, who could be sent to the minors to start the year, has been outstanding this spring, and the team and Betances hope that he breaks camp on the major league roster. Betances picked the brains of many of the team's relievers during his September call-up last year and learned valuable lessons about setting up hitters. "Dellin has electric stuff, it's just a matter of being able to calm yourself down and slow the game down," RP David Robertson said. "He's a big, intimidating guy out there on the mound. With a little more experience, he'll fit in great."

New York Yankees RP Dellin Betances has thrown 5 1/3 scoreless innings this spring, and he is putting himself into a position to make the club as either a one- or two-inning reliever.
