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.

The New York Yankees activated 1B Mark Teixeira (wrist) and 3B Kevin Youkilis (back) from the disabled list Friday, May 31, and optioned SPs Ivan Nova and Vidal Nuno to the minors in a corresponding move.
Fantasy Tip: Get Tex and Youk back into your starting lineups. Youkilis is still available in less than 50 percent of leagues. He should be owned, considering the lack of depth at the third base position. Youkilis is serving as the designated hitter, with David Adams at third base.

New York Yankees SP David Phelps will stay in the rotation. SPs Ivan Nova and Vidal Nuno were options to replace him, but manager Joe Girardi has elected to stay with Phelps.
Fantasy Tip: Phelps had a disastrous outing against the Mets yesterday, allowing five runs (four earned) and four hits in just a third of an inning. He's been decent in May besides that, though, convincing Girardi that he deserves to stick around a little longer. In deep leagues, he can be useful in spot duty.

New York Yankees SP Andy Pettitte (back) will return from the disabled list to start Monday, June 3.
Fantasy Tip: Vidal Nuno, who is making a start this weekend, will likely be sent back to the minors when Pettitte returns. Pettitte remains useful in matchup plays in deep mixed leagues.

The New York Yankees activated SP Ivan Nova (triceps) from the 15-day disabled list Friday, May 24, but he will be sent to the bullpen with SP David Phelps locked into the rotation for the time being. SP Vidal Nuno is starting against the Tampa Bay Rays Saturday, May 25. Nova has struggled in his four starts this year, going 1-1 with a 6.28 ERA. "I'm not a bullpen pitcher. I never have been a bullpen guy. But if that's the role they got for me right now, I gotta do the best that I can do. I'm not thinking like I'm going to be in the bullpen for the rest of the year," Nova said. Phelps is 2-2 with a 3.83 ERA in four starts.
Fantasy Tip: Nova's inconsistency and injuries have pushed him back to the bullpen, and unless Phelps falters, he might stay there for a while. It's safe to drop Nova in mixed leagues, and Phelps is worth a look in those same formats.

New York Yankees SP Vidal Nuno will remain in the rotation and start against the Tampa Bay Rays Saturday, May 25, with the team giving SP CC Sabathia an extra day of rest. Sabathia will start Sunday, May 26.
Fantasy Tip: Nuno is an option for the pitching desperate in AL leagues, but just know that he'll likely be sent back to the minors when Andy Pettitte (back) returns from the disabled list.
