Yankees | CC Sabathia wants to pitch beyond 2017

Wed, 28 Sep 2016 22:08:08 -0700

New York Yankees SP CC Sabathia said Wednesday, Sept. 28, that he wants to continue pitching after his contract with the team expires after the 2017 season. "I know I want to pitch after next year, but I haven't thought about where or what. Hopefully it will be here. We'll see," Sabathia said.

Blue Jays | Toronto looking at CC Sabathia

Fri, 22 Jul 2016 18:46:06 -0700

A Toronto Blue Jays scout was present at New York Yankees SP CC Sabathia's start against the Baltimore Orioles Thursday, July 21.

Fantasy Tip: Sabathia, who turned 36 years old Thursday, is 5-8 with a 4.04 ERA through 17 starts this season and is 0-3 with a 6.85 ERA in four outings this month. His status as a 10-and-5 player gives him veto power over any potential deal and few teams would likely be willing to pay a sizable chunk of his remaining contract anyway, so expect the veteran lefty to stay put in the Bronx.

Yankees | CC Sabathia allows four runs in loss

Thu, 21 Jul 2016 15:22:56 -0700

New York Yankees SP CC Sabathia allowed four runs on seven hits and one walk while striking out two batters over 6 2/3 innings during the Yankees' 4-1 loss to the Baltimore Orioles Thursday, July 21.

Fantasy Tip: Sabathia has seen his ERA balloon from 2.20 to 4.04 over his past six starts, as he's allowed 31 runs -- 29 earned -- through 35 innings. At this point, Sabathia can't be started with confidence, and he shouldn't be owned outside of cavernous mixed and AL-only leagues.

Rangers | Texas looking at Yankee starters

Tue, 19 Jul 2016 11:13:47 -0700

New York Yankees SPs Nathan Eovaldi, Ivan Nova and CC Sabathia are being scouted by the Texas Rangers because New York might be willing to part with one of their starters for a second-tier Texas prospect.

Fantasy Tip: Eovaldi and Sabathia have flashed signs of brilliance this season, but neither look the part of a reliable starter currently. And Nova has been an underwhelming pitcher all season. There is potential for a slight fantasy boost wearing a new uniform, and Texas is a contender, but it wouldn't catapult any one of the trio into the must-start category. Stay tuned for updates.

Yankees | CC Sabathia can block a trade

Sun, 17 Jul 2016 06:44:30 -0700

New York Yankees SP CC Sabathia has the right to block any trade because of his service time. The Yankees have received inquires about the availability of the veteran lefty, according to sources.

Fantasy Tip: Sabathia carries a $25 million salary, and he's been hammered over his past five outings (7.94 ERA), so the trade interest could cool quickly. A relocation might help his fantasy value, but after a strong start to the season (2.20 ERA through his first 11 games), he's back to being a risky start in all matchups. Don't fret replacing Sabathia in mixed leagues.

Rangers | Mitch Moreland not in Tuesday lineup

Tue, 28 Jun 2016 13:02:31 -0700

Texas Rangers 1B Mitch Moreland is not starting Tuesday, June 28, against the New York Yankees. 2B Jurickson Profar will play first and bat eighth against Yankees SP CC Sabathia.

Fantasy Tip: Moreland is out due to the matchup with a lefty pitcher, so sideline him for the evening if you can. The Rangers want to put Profar in the lineup more often so this is an encouraging sign. Profar has seven hits in his last seven games but doesn't play every day. He's reliable in DFS formats for the time being.

Rangers | Nomar Mazara out of Tuesday lineup

Tue, 28 Jun 2016 12:51:35 -0700

Texas Rangers OF Nomar Mazara is not in the lineup Tuesday, June 28, against the New York Yankees. OF Ryan Rua is in left field and will bat fifth against Yankees SP CC Sabathia.

Fantasy Tip: Mazara is a casualty of a lefty vs. lefty matchup, so don't be surprised to see him available for pinch-hit duty. Rua only has one hit in his past seven games so he carries little, if any, fantasy value.

Yankees | CC Sabathia has worst start of '16

Wed, 22 Jun 2016 15:41:50 -0700

New York Yankees SP CC Sabathia managed to escape with a no-decision Wednesday, June 22, against the Colorado Rockies, but not before spinning his worst effort of the season. The veteran southpaw lasted a season-low 4 1/3 innings, surrendering a season-high six runs (five earned) on seven hits and two walks. He also picked up three strikeouts.

Fantasy Tip: Amazingly, it was just the first time all year Sabathia has allowed more than three runs in a start, and he had surrendered two or less in each of his last seven outings. His pitching has surprisingly been one of the large reasons why the Yankees have been able to stay afloat thus far, but everyone knew his outstanding run would be coming to an end sooner than later. Even so, he's done more than enough this year for his owners to stick with him. Caution should be expressed, though, if he struggles again his next time out.

Yankees | X-rays negative for CC Sabathia

Wed, 22 Jun 2016 13:57:26 -0700

New York Yankees SP CC Sabathia (ankle) turned his ankle during his start Wednesday, June 22. His X-ray results were negative, and he is expected to make his next start, according to manager Joe Girardi.

Fantasy Tip: Sabathia was roughed up by the Colorado Rockies in the start Wednesday, as he allowed six runs -- five earned -- on seven hits and two walks. And while he owned a 2.20 ERA over 11 starts entering Wednesday, fantasy owners shouldn't be too eager to cast Sabathia as anything more than a mid-rotation starter. It is likely still best to be selective with who you start him against, too. Stay tuned for updates, but it appears he's avoided injury.

Yankees | CC Sabathia hurls another gem

Thu, 16 Jun 2016 20:37:38 -0700

New York Yankees SP CC Sabathia allowed one run on six hits while walking three and striking out seven over six innings in a win over the Minnesota Twins Thursday, June 16.

Fantasy Tip: Sabathia has struggled with pitch efficiency recently, but his ERA is down to 2.20 and he needs to be owned in all formats at this point.
