Yankees | Chase Headley sitting out

Thu, 09 Jul 2015 08:54:54 -0700

New York Yankees 3B Chase Headley (calf) is out of the lineup Thursday, July 9. The team recalled 3B Cole Figueroa from Class AAA Scranton/Wilkes-Barre and optioned 2B Jose Pirela to Scranton/Wilkes-Barre.

Fantasy Tip: Figueroa is in the lineup hitting ninth against Jesse Chavez. He had a .317-3-36 line on the farm, but give him a day or two to wet his toes before using him on FantasyScore.

Yankees | Stephen Drew out of lineup

Wed, 08 Jul 2015 12:58:26 -0700

New York Yankees 2B Stephen Drew is not in the lineup against Oakland Athletics left-handed SP Scott Kazmir Wednesday, July 8. 2B Jose Pirela is starting at second base and is batting eighth.

Fantasy Tip: Pirela ($2,700, 5.4% of cap) is surprisingly hitting .359 (14-for-39) with a home run and five RBI in his career against left-handed pitchers. However, Kazmir is no easy matchup, and hitting near the bottom of the batting order won't do Pirela any daily favors. He remains a low-end deep sleeper on FantasyScore.

Yankees | Jose Pirela in lineup Saturday

Sat, 27 Jun 2015 11:55:10 -0700

New York Yankees INF Jose Pirela will start at second base and bat ninth against Houston Astros SP Brett Oberholtzer Saturday, June 27.

Fantasy Tip: Pirela ($2,600, 5.2% of cap) is batting .263 this month but is just 2-for-12 over the past week. He should be avoided in FantasyScore unless you're desperate for salary cap relief.

Yankees | Stephen Drew to paternity list

Tue, 23 Jun 2015 11:55:44 -0700

New York Yankees SS Stephen Drew was placed on the paternity list Tuesday, June 23. INF Ramon Flores was optioned to Class AAA Scranton/Wilkes-Barre, and RP Bryan Mitchell and 2B Jose Pirela were recalled from the minors in corresponding moves.

Fantasy Tip: Pirela and Brendan Ryan ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) are likely to fill in at the keystone for the next several days with Drew gone. Both players are deep sleeper picks for the desperate in need of salary cap relief on FantasyScore.

Fantasy Tip: Both Pirela ($2,600, 5.2% of cap) and Ryan ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) should be avoided everywhere by daily gamers this afternoon.

Yankees | Stephen Drew off Sunday

Sun, 07 Jun 2015 07:53:52 -0700

New York Yankees 2B Stephen Drew is out of the lineup Sunday, June 7, against the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim. 2B Jose Pirela will start at second base and bat sixth in the order against LHP C.J. Wilson.

Fantasy Tip: Pirela ($2,100, 4.2% of cap) is hitting .438 off lefties in 16 plate appearances. Pirela has six singles and one double, but he's hitting high enough in the order to carry some potential for GPP tournaments.

Yankees | Jose Pirela starting at keystone

Tue, 02 Jun 2015 16:38:31 -0700

New York Yankees 2B Jose Pirela is starting at second base and hitting seventh in the batting order against Seattle Mariners SP Mike Montgomery Tuesday, June 2. 2B Stephen Drew shifts over to shortstop, while SS Didi Gregorius starts on the bench.

Fantasy Tip: Pirela ($2,100, 4.2% of cap) has only eight hits in 36 at-bats (.222) with no home runs and no RBI. That right there should indicate that he should be left alone on FantasyScore.

New York Yankees 2B Jose Pirela will play second base and bat ninth against the Oakland Athletics Sunday, May 31. 2B Stephen Drew is getting the day off.

Fantasy Tip: Pirela ($2,100, 4.2% of cap) is only batting .212 through 33 at-bats this season and should not be under consideration for FantasyScore lineups.

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.
