Yankees | Jose Pirela starting at keystone

Tue, 19 May 2015 13:13:18 -0700

New York Yankees 2B Jose Pirela is starting at second base and hitting seventh in the batting order against Washington Nationals SP Gio Gonzalez Tuesday, May 19. SS Didi Gregorius is on the bench, and 2B Stephen Drew has shifted over to shortstop.

Yankees | Jose Pirela starting at second

Sat, 16 May 2015 14:17:12 -0700

New York Yankees 2B Jose Pirela will start at second base and bat seventh in the order Saturday, May 16, against the Kansas City Royals and LHP Danny Duffy.

Fantasy Tip: Pirela ($1,800, 3.6% of cap) is 5-for 18 to start his 2015 major league season. All of Pirela's hits have come against left-handed pitchers, and he'll make for a nice option on FantasyScore, while also helping owners save cap space.

Yankees | Jose Pirela starting at keystone

Thu, 14 May 2015 12:54:06 -0700

New York Yankees 2B Jose Pirela is starting at second base and hitting ninth in the batting order against Tampa Bay Rays SP Erasmo Ramirez Thursday, May 14. 2B Stephen Drew is starting on the bench.

Fantasy Tip: Pirela ($1,800, 3.6% of cap) has just 14 at-bats this year (five hits), but he could eventually take more time away from the struggling Drew at second base. Until Pirela shows us more and sees more consistent playing time, he's merely a low-end flyer at FantasyScore.

Wed, 13 May 2015 13:11:11 -0700

Yankees | Didi Gregorius back at SS

Sun, 10 May 2015 07:31:49 -0700

New York Yankees SS Didi Gregorius is back in the lineup Sunday, May 10, against the Baltimore Orioles. 2B Jose Pirela is out of the lineup.

Fantasy Tip: Gregorius ($2,200, 4.4% of cap) draws back in as the Yankees' infield shuffle continues. Gregorius is just 2-for-14 in his last four games and shouldn't be considered for FantasyScore purposes.

Fri, 08 May 2015 13:15:38 -0700

New York Yankees 2B Jose Pirela will be the starting second baseman against the Baltimore Orioles Friday, May 8. 2B Stephen Drew is sitting out the game.

Fantasy Tip: Pirela ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) had a solid debut Wednesday, May 6, when he went 2-for-4. Owners on FantasyScore could see him as a cheaper option but should be able to find a better option to use.

Yankees | Jose Pirela debuts with two hits

Wed, 06 May 2015 19:51:58 -0700

New York Yankees 2B Jose Pirela (concussion) made his season debut Wednesday, May 6, against the Toronto Blue Jays after being activated from the 15-day disabled list earlier in the day.

Fantasy Tip: Pirela finished with a single and double in four at-bats and he also struck out once. At just $1,600 (or 3.2% of cap) he isn't a bad FantasyScore option at second base, especially if he draws more starts in place of the struggling Stephen Drew.

Yankees | Jose Pirela making debut

Wed, 06 May 2015 14:28:20 -0700

New York Yankees 2B Jose Pirela is making his season debut at second base and is hitting ninth in the batting order against Toronto Blue Jays SP Mark Buehrle Wednesday, May 6. SS Didi Gregorius is not in the lineup, while SS Stephen Drew shifts over to shortstop.

Fantasy Tip: Pirela ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) had eight hits in 24 at-bats (.333) in seven games last year. He could eventually take more starts away from Drew at second base if the veteran continues to struggle. Look to add Pirela for help in AL-only leagues. Pirela can save you plenty of loot at FantasyScore tonight against a struggling pitcher, but he's merely a shot in the dark.

Yankees | Jose Pirela to be activated Wednesday

Tue, 05 May 2015 16:03:03 -0700

New York Yankees 2B Jose Pirela will be activated for the game Wednesday, May 6, against the Toronto Blue Jays. Manager Joe Girardi said he will take things day-by-day regarding choosing starters between Pirela, incumbent 2B Stephen Drew and SS Didi Gregorius.

Fantasy Tip: Pirela ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) was hitting .579 through 20 at bats for Class AAA, with one home run and zero strikeouts. With Drew and Gregorius both struggling, Pirela could make a strong case for playing time if he's able to get off to a quick start at the major league level. Owners in deep leagues or AL-only leagues can go ahead and scoop up Pirela, while moderate-sized, mixed league owners should keep a watchful eyes on the Yankees' daily lineups.
