The New York Yankees have just two pitchers locked into spots for the rotation in 2014, SPs CC Sabathia and Ivan Nova. SP Andy Pettitte has retired, and SPs Hiroki Kuroda and Phil Hughes are impending free agents. The team is hopeful Michael Pineda will be able to lock up a spot in spring training, and SPs Vidal Nuno, David Phelps and Adam Warren are other potential candidates to compete for spots barring any help from outside of the organization.

New York Yankees RP Mariano Rivera may not be available to pitch in a save situation Friday, Sept. 6, and RP David Robertson said he's unlikely to be available, too. Rivera has thrown each of the last three nights, including a four-out save Wednesday, Sept. 4. Robertson has tossed pitches in the last two games. Manager Joe Girardi said he'll go with matchups in the ninth in a save situation. Only RPs Joba Chamberlain and Adam Warren have recorded saves aside from Rivera and Robertson this year. Rivera blew his sixth save of the season Thursday, Sept. 5.

The New York Yankees placed 1B Mark Teixeira (wrist) on the 15-day disabled list Tuesday, June 18, and recalled P Adam Warren and OF Zoilo Almonte from the minors in corresponding moves. Also, RP Chris Bootcheck was designated for assignment.
Fantasy Tip: GM Brian Cashman hinted yesterday that this would happen. The good news is that there's no structural damage in Teixeira's right wrist. However, there's still the possibility that he'll need season-ending surgery. Monitor his progress and hold onto him for now. Lyle Overbay should see the majority of starts at first base again in Tex's absence, making him relevant in AL-only leagues once again.

The New York Yankees placed 3B Kevin Youkilis (back) on the 15-day disabled list with a back strain. They placed SS Eduardo Nunez (oblique) on the 60-day DL, optioned SP Adam Warren to Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre and called up RP Chris Bootcheck and 1B Thomas Neal.
Fantasy Tip: Expect Reid Brignac to play nearly every day until Youk and/or Derek Jeter (ankle) return. He might run into minimal deep-mixed value, but that's not a safe bet. Neither Neal nor Bootcheck deserves fantasy attention.

New York Yankees SP Andy Pettitte (back) said his trapezius muscle wasn't tight and he wasn't hurting after the game Thursday, May 16, but he's unsure if he'll have to miss his next start Tuesday, May 21, against the Baltimore Orioles. A team doctor thinks Pettitte was just dealing with a spasm. Pettitte allowed four hits and struck out five Thursday. Pettitte is 4-3 with a 3.83 ERA in eight starts this season. The team could use SP Adam Warren in the rotation if Pettitte has to miss time. Warren is 1-0 with a 1.37 ERA over 19 2/3 innings this year, and he's currently working out of the bullpen.
Fantasy Tip: Pettitte dealt with back spasms last month, too, although it isn't surprising for a pitcher who has has multiple injury issues over the past several seasons and who is turning 41 next month. Warren should only intrigue those in AL-only leagues if he receives a few starts.

New York Yankees SP Hiroki Kuroda (finger) will throw a bullpen session Friday, April 5, which will determine if he can make his next start. SP Adam Warren could take Kuroda's spot in the rotation if he can't go. Ps Vidal Nuno and Chien-Ming Wang are other possibilities.
