Yankees | Alex Rodriguez begins working out

Tue, 08 Dec 2015 13:11:53 -0800

New York Yankees 1B Alex Rodriguez has started baseball activities this winter after coming off a comeback year in which he hit .250 with 33 home runs and 86 RBI after missing all of 2014 due to a season-long suspension.

Fantasy Tip: It would be foolish to expect another 30-plus home run season from A-Rod at age 40, but the veteran slugger will still be useful in all formats for his power in a hitter-friendly ball park. Just don't overspend on him in drafts based on his remarkable comeback season.

Fantasy Tip: These slumps may or may not last into next season, but for now it is something to keep an eye on if you are doing a postseason fantasy league or contest.

Yankees | Alex Rodriguez, Chase Headley out

Sun, 27 Sep 2015 07:56:30 -0700

New York Yankees 3Bs Alex Rodriguez and Chase Headley are not in the starting lineup Sunday, Sept. 27.

Fantasy Tip: Make sure to avoid both players in all fantasy formats Sunday. Rodriguez ($5,100, 10.2% of cap) is mired in a 5-for-32 slump over his past 12 games, and seasonal owners shouldn't view him as a must-start hitter at this stage of the season. Similarly, Headley ($3,600, 7.2% of cap) owns a .178/.245/.222 slash line in September.

Yankees | A-Rod reaches 2,000 career runs

Fri, 25 Sep 2015 00:21:17 -0700

New York Yankees 3B Alex Rodriguez became the eighth player in Major League Baseball with 2,000 career runs scored on Thursday, Sept. 24. He and Hank Aaron are the only players with 3,000 hits, 2,000 RBIs and 2,000 runs.

Fantasy Tip: Rodriguez ($5,100, 10.2% of cap) finds his way into the lineup with regularity unless it is interleague play, and he should get some playing time down the stretch as the Yankees try for the wild card.

Yankees | Alex Rodriguez out of lineup Sunday

Sun, 20 Sep 2015 14:07:01 -0700

New York Yankees 3B Alex Rodriguez is not starting again Sunday, Sept. 20, against the New York Mets. CC Sabathia has the pitcher's batting slot in ninth.

Fantasy Tip: Rodriguez ($5,100, 10.2% of cap) is the only big-name Yankee sitting out against the Mets on Sunday. This was to be expected, as A-Rod normally sits in National League parks due to the presence of no DH.

Yankees | Alex Rodriguez out again

Sat, 19 Sep 2015 07:53:37 -0700

New York Yankees 3B Alex Rodriguez is not in the starting lineup against New York Mets SP Noah Syndergaard Saturday, Sept. 19, because there are no designated hitters during games in National League parks.

Fantasy Tip: Rodriguez ($5,100, 10.2% of cap) should return to the lineup once the series against the Mets is over. Rodriguez is having a fine season and should be a starting option in most leagues.

Yankees | Alex Rodriguez out vs. Mets

Fri, 18 Sep 2015 13:18:44 -0700

New York Yankees 3B Alex Rodriguez is not in the starting lineup against the New York Mets Friday, Sept. 18.

Fantasy Tip: Playing at Citi Field against the Mets, there is no option to utilize Rodriguez ($5,100, 10.2% of cap) as a designated hitter. He might see a start at some point during the series, but being proactive and looking for a weekend replacement in seasonal leagues isn't out of the question.

Yankees | Alex Rodriguez has bone bruise

Tue, 15 Sep 2015 16:21:04 -0700

New York Yankees 3B Alex Rodriguez's (knee) MRI exam showed a bone bruise in his left knee Tuesday, Sept. 15. However, he homered in the game Tuesday night against the Tampa Bay Rays.

Fantasy Tip: Rodriguez's ($5,100, 10.2% of cap) knee injury must not be too serious for him to homer and start in tonight's game, but it's worth watching. If it gets worse it could easily affect his production as the season winds down.
