Yankees | Girardi not worried about Dellin Betances

Mon, 30 Mar 2015 09:08:46 -0700

New York Yankees RP Dellin Betances, who has a 7.11 ERA in seven spring outings, allowed an unearned run while striking out two in an inning Sunday, March 29, but his fastball reached the mid-90s. Manager Joe Girardi said he's not worried at all about Betances' confidence heading into the regular season.

Fantasy Tip: Betances is expected to have the first crack at closing duties in the Bronx, although Girardi has yet to announce a closer. Andrew Miller is another candidate for save chances. Betances has been overvalued a tad in drafts this spring, but perhaps his shaky spring performance has kept owners more honest. Handcuffing Miller to Betances is the ideal situation.

Yankees | Dellin Betances struggling

Sat, 28 Mar 2015 18:27:02 -0700

New York Yankees RP Dellin Betances has a 7.11 ERA in seven appearances this spring, and he has allowed at least one run in every appearance.

Fantasy Tip: Betances is the popular pick to land the closer's role for the Yankees, but he certainly isn't seizing the opportunity. He has the chance to be an elite fantasy closer because of his strikeout potential, but there is no guarantee he will reach his ceiling. If you draft him, make sure you pair him with another reliable reliever or two.

Yankees | Dellin Betances unhappy with velocity

Wed, 25 Mar 2015 11:29:36 -0700

New York Yankees RP Dellin Betances topped out at 94 mph with his fastball Tuesday, March 24, and he said his velocity is "nowhere near where it should be." Betances said the velocity will come, but he's been trying to do too much this spring. "It's not a concern for me, no," manager Joe Girardi said of Betances' velocity. "If it goes on for a long time, it will be a concern. Power pitchers usually take a little longer."

Fantasy Tip: A drop in velocity is usually an early sign of injury, if the situation lingers, like Girardi mentioned. For now, you shouldn't be too concerned. He's a popular closing option for fantasy baseball owners, but he's a bit overvalued, especially since Girardi hasn't named a closer yet. Andrew Miller could see save chances in the Bronx, as well, depending on matchups.

Yankees | Yanks not naming closer?

Mon, 23 Mar 2015 15:56:43 -0700

New York Yankees RPs Dellin Betances and Andrew Miller don't seem too concerned with who will be named a closer in 2015, and manager Joe Girardi isn't worried about naming a ninth-inning guy before opening day. Betances has been considered the favorite this offseason. Girardi plans to use both of them in the late innings, and both relievers said they'll be ready when the phone rings.

Fantasy Tip: Betances was one of the most dominating relievers not in a closing role in 2014, leading many to believe he'll be the guy for the Yanks in the ninth this year. However, Miller was just as dominant in his own right as a lefty specialist, mainly. This could wind up being a closer-by-committee based on matchups in the ninth. Both pitchers are worth drafting for saves in mixed leagues, but be careful not to overvalue Betances with the closing gig in the Bronx cloudy.

Yankees | Dellin Betances with closer edge?

Fri, 13 Feb 2015 10:32:37 -0800

New York Yankees RPs Dellin Betances and Andrew Miller will enter spring training with neither having the closer job locked down. The Yankees don't feel like they need to have a choice right now, but manager Joe Girardi would like to have a decision by the end of spring training. MLB.com's Bryan Hoch's guess is that Betances will win the job, with Miller serving as the eighth-inning setup man.
