Yankees | CC Sabathia looks sharp in loss

Thu, 26 May 2016 17:26:48 -0700

New York Yankees SP CC Sabathia dropped to 3-3 after losing his start Thursday, May 26, opposite the Toronto Blue Jays, but he couldn't really have fared better. The left-hander hurled seven excellent innings, allowing two unearned runs on just two hits and one walk. He also struck out seven.

Fantasy Tip: How many people saw Sabathia having a renaissance season in 2016? That's been exactly the case thus far, as despite his .500 record, he now owns a desirable 2.83 ERA, while averaging nearly one strikeout per inning. Perhaps most impressive of all, the 35-year-old has surrendered just one home run in his seven starts after serving up a career-high-tying 28 long balls a season ago. If he can keep that trend up, Sabathia will continue to be a useful commodity in most leagues, if not all.

Yankees | CC Sabathia reaches milestone

Sat, 21 May 2016 05:16:29 -0700

New York Yankees SP CC Sabathia allowed one run on three hits in six innings against the Oakland Athletics Friday, May 20, to pick up his third win of the season. He struck out eight batters and walked one during the game. Sabathia became the eight player in the modern era to pick up at least 100 wins with two different teams.

Fantasy Tip: Sabathia pitched well after returning from injury and has allowed only one earned run in two starts this month. He is scheduled to face the Toronto Blue Jays in his next start, which makes him a risky option for owners since Toronto has a solid offense.

Yankees | CC Sabathia coming off DL

Fri, 20 May 2016 05:24:21 -0700

New York Yankees SP CC Sabathia (groin) is scheduled to come off the DL and start Friday, May 20, against the Oakland Athletics.

Fantasy Tip: Sabathia, who is 2-2 with a 3.81 earned run average, will seek his 100th career victory. He may be worth a flyer in daily leagues for this, but otherwise Sabathia's pure value is in AL-only formats and deep mixed leagues.

Yankees | CC Sabathia throws simulated game

Sun, 15 May 2016 08:08:09 -0700

New York Yankees SP CC Sabathia (groin) threw a 45-pitch simulated game Sunday, May 15, without experiencing any setbacks. He expects to start against the Oakland Athletics Friday, May 20.

Fantasy Tip: Although Sabathia is 2-2 with a 3.81 ERA through five starts, with 21 strikeouts in 28 1/3 innings, he should be viewed exclusively as an option in AL-only and deep mixed leagues at this stage of his career.

Yankees | A-Rod, Sabathia returning soon?

Wed, 11 May 2016 14:52:55 -0700

New York Yankees 3B Alex Rodriguez (hamstring) and SP CC Sabathia (groin) are hopeful of returning when eligible to come off the 15-day disabled list, according to manager Joe Girardi. Rodriguez is eligible to return May 19, while Sabathia can be activated May 20.

Fantasy Tip: Rodriguez was hitting just .194 (14-for-72) with five home runs and 12 RBI when he went down with injury, and Sabathia had allowed three earned runs in each outing before seven shutout innings in his final start before being hurt. Both veterans can provide fantasy owners with nice stretches, but temper expectations. Neither player is more than a complementary piece in deep mixed and AL-only leagues.

Yankees | CC Sabathia believes groin injury is minor

Sat, 07 May 2016 10:28:41 -0700

Contrary to a previous report, New York Yankees SP CC Sabathia (groin) said his left groin strain is not serious and he believes he will be able to return from the disabled list after missing the minimum 15 days. He is scheduled to resume playing catch soon.

Fantasy Tip: Sabathia is 2-2 with a 3.81 ERA through five starts this season, with 21 strikeouts through 28 1/3 innings. The 35-year-old southpaw is only worth stashing in AL-only and cavernous mixed fantasy leagues. Ivan Nova is replacing him in the rotation on a temporary basis but should be viewed as nothing more than a potential flier in daily fantasy games.

Yankees | CC Sabathia won't be back soon

Fri, 06 May 2016 16:14:09 -0700

New York Yankees SP CC Sabathia (groin) is likely to be out longer than 15 days, according to manager Joe Girardi. "I think the last time he had this, he was out about three weeks," Girardi said. "I think you feel probably pretty fortunate if you could get him then." SP Ivan Nova will replace Sabathia in the rotation, according to Girardi. Nova will start against the Kansas City Royals Monday, May 9.

Fantasy Tip: It's unfortunate for Sabathia after his best outing -- a seven-inning shutout -- came in his last start against the Orioles. Consider dropping him for better options in deep mixed leagues. Nova hasn't pitched well in relief (5.14 ERA in 14 innings) and is a flier in AL-only formats. It wouldn't be wise to buy low on Nova in daily affairs for his first start Monday.

Yankees | CC Sabathia lands on DL

Fri, 06 May 2016 11:20:03 -0700

New York Yankees SP CC Sabathia (groin) was placed on the 15-day disabled list with a left groin strain Friday, May 6. RP Phil Coke had his contract selected from Class AAA Scranton/Wilkes-Barre in a corresponding move.

Fantasy Tip: Sabathia had been mediocre in each of his first four starts (three earned runs in each outing) before tossing seven shutout innings against the Orioles last time out. He's only worth stashing in AL-only formats. Ivan Nova is the most likely candidate to jump into the rotation, but he's sporting a 5.14 ERA and has only seven strikeouts in 14 innings of relief.

Yankees | CC Sabathia uses changeup to dominate

Wed, 04 May 2016 21:45:48 -0700

New York Yankees SP CC Sabathia worked around six hits and two walks with six strikeouts over seven scoreless innings in a win against the Baltimore Orioles Wednesday, May 4. He used his changeup 20 times, recording eight outs on the pitch, including four strikeouts. He had thrown 36 changeups all season in his four other starts.

Fantasy Tip: Sabathia was impressive, and you can expect him to use him changeup a lot more in future starts based upon the successful results in this game. He is 2-2 with a 3.81 ERA, re-emerging as a must-start in AL-only fantasy formats, most mixed leagues and DFS.

Yankees | CC Sabathia looks to snap Camden skid

Tue, 03 May 2016 21:58:42 -0700

New York Yankees SP CC Sabathia will face the Baltimore Orioles Wednesday, May 4. He has a career 18-7 record lifetime against the Baltimore Orioles, but he is winless in his past eight starts at Oriole Park at Camden Yards.

Fantasy Tip: It's a good idea to reserve Sabathia in fantasy leagues which allow daily transactions, and steer far clear of Sabathia in DFS play, too.
