New York Yankees 3B Yangervis Solarte had two doubles in a loss Tuesday, April 8, and he's hit safely in his first six career starts and is 11-for-24 with six doubles.
Fantasy Tip: Solarte is a must-own in all AL-only leagues with Mark Teixeira (hamstring) on the DL, and because of his hot stick, those in deep mixed leagues should consider him, too, if they haven't already.

The New York Yankees have placed 1B Mark Teixeira (hamstring) on the 15-day disabled list with a strained hamstring.
Fantasy Tip: Kelly Johnson will play first base while Teixeira is out of the lineup and is valuable in mixed leagues, especially since he'll likely add first base to his position eligibility. Yangervis Solarte is expected to see most of the starts at the hot corner now. Take a look at the utility infielder in AL-only formats.

Updating a previous report, New York Yankees 1B Mark Teixeira (hamstring) suffered a strained right hamstring during the game Friday, April 4.
Fantasy Tip: Kelly Johnson likely will take over at first base if Teixeira misses a decent amount of time. Johnson could become an option in mixed leagues especially if he gains first base eligibility. Yangervis Solarte and Dean Anna could see time at third base if Johnson moves to first base. Both could have value in AL-only leagues, but Solarte should be the top target. Teixeira could be placed on the disabled list if the injury will take weeks to heal.

The New York Yankees placed 2B Brendan Ryan (spine) on the 15-day disabled list with a cervical spine nerve problem Tuesday, April 1, and recalled INF Yangervis Solarte from the minors in a corresponding move.
Fantasy Tip: Solarte will effectively replace Ryan as the club's utility infielder. Don't expect a quick return from Ryan because of the nature of his ailment.
