Yankees | Alex Rodriguez provides the offense

Wed, 27 Apr 2016 23:57:55 -0700

New York Yankees DH Alex Rodriguez went 3-for-3 with a double, walk and solo home run Wednesday, April 27, against the Texas Rangers.

Fantasy Tip: A-Rod needed a game like this, as he is still hitting just .190 with three homers and seven RBIs. He remains a must-start in all AL-only fantasy leagues, but those in mixed formats might want to reserve him until he gets untracked.

Yankees | Alex Rodriguez returns Wednesday

Wed, 27 Apr 2016 14:35:26 -0700

New York Yankees 3B Alex Rodriguez (oblique) is back in the starting lineup and is hitting fifth against Texas Rangers SP Martin Perez Wednesday, April 27.

Fantasy Tip: A-Rod has missed the last couple of games with an oblique issue. He's off to a rough start, hitting only .145 (8-for-55) with two home runs and six RBI, so it might be best to keep him benched until he breaks out of his season-opening slump.

Yankees | Alex Rodriguez out again

Tue, 26 Apr 2016 15:14:42 -0700

New York Yankees 3B Alex Rodriguez (oblique) is not in the starting lineup Tuesday, April 26, versus Texas Rangers SP A.J. Griffin.

Fantasy Tip: It'll be his second straight game not in the lineup but this is just a minor ailment, so A-Rod should be back within a few days. In the meantime, Dustin Ackley draws another start, though he's only really a dart throw in daily games. After all, the former Seattle Mariner is just 1-for-12 to start the campaign.

Yankees | Alex Rodriguez feeling better

Tue, 26 Apr 2016 14:18:06 -0700

New York Yankees 3B Alex Rodriguez (oblique) is "hopeful" that he can be back in the lineup soon and he feels "better than yesterday." He also said he took 25 swings off a tee Monday, April 25, and felt pretty good.

Fantasy Tip: A-Rod hasn't played since Sunday, but he's been a liability for fantasy teams based on his performance thus far. In fact, while he's got two home runs and six RBI, he's hitting just .145/.242/.273 in his 15 games. He's far off from the renaissance season he experienced a year ago but he should get going at some point. Dustin Ackley stands to be the biggest beneficiary while Rodriguez is sidelined.

Yankees | Alex Rodriguez will not play

Mon, 25 Apr 2016 13:59:28 -0700

New York Yankees 3B Alex Rodriguez (oblique) is not in the starting lineup against Texas Rangers SP Cesar Ramos Monday, April 25. OF Carlos Beltran will serve as the designated hitter, while 2B Dustin Ackley will start in right field and is batting seventh in the lineup.

Fantasy Tip: Owners will need to keep an eye on the situation to see how long Rodriguez will be out of the lineup. Ackley has gone 1-for-9 in his limited playing time this season, so owners should be able to find better options in their lineups.

Yankees | MRI results negative for A-Rod

Sun, 24 Apr 2016 16:31:08 -0700

Updating a previous story, New York Yankees DH Alex Rodriguez's (oblique) MRI results came back negative Sunday, April 24. No immediate roster move will be made, and Rodriguez will travel with the team for the series against the Texas Rangers that begins Monday, April 25.

Fantasy Tip: While Rodriguez wasn't placed on the disabled list, he could still miss a few games. Keep him on the bench until his return is confirmed.

Yankees | A-Rod set to undergo MRI

Sun, 24 Apr 2016 13:07:07 -0700

New York Yankees DH Alex Rodriguez (oblique) was removed from the lineup Sunday, April 24, with left oblique stiffness, according to the team, and will undergo an MRI.

Fantasy Tip: Rodriguez drove in the Yankees' only run of the day on an RBI double in his final at-bat in the fourth inning but must have hurt himself on the play. He is only batting .145 this season and is on the brink of fantasy irrelevancy in most leagues. Dustin Ackley replaced him Sunday and is the most logical to pick up additional at-bats should Rodriguez miss multiple games.

Yankees | Alex Rodriguez ends slump

Sun, 17 Apr 2016 13:28:14 -0700

New York Yankees DH Alex Rodriguez ended a 0-for-19 slump with a two-run shot against Seattle Mariners SP Hisashi Iwakuma on Sunday, April 17.

Fantasy Tip: The two-RBI effort was the first of the season for Rodriguez, who lifted his average to .118. The 40-year-old struck out two more times on Sunday and has whiffed at least twice in four of his last six games, so it doesn't appear he is on the verge of a breakthrough. Keep him on benches in fantasy for now.

Yankees | NYY shuffles lineup vs. Mariners

Sun, 17 Apr 2016 07:03:46 -0700

New York Yankees OF Carlos Beltran is batting third, and DH Alex Rodriguez is batting sixth against Seattle Mariners SP Hisashi Iwakuma Sunday, April 17.

Fantasy Tip: Rodriguez has hit third for most of the season, but he is off to a 3-for-30 start, whereas Beltran is scorching hot. The outfielder has six runs, three home runs, seven RBI and a .351/.368/.649 slash line over 38 plate appearances to start the campaign. Beltran should be owned in all fantasy formats, whereas Rodriguez is a candidate to be benched until he heats up at the dish.

Yankees | No Alex Rodriguez vs. Seattle

Fri, 15 Apr 2016 12:44:33 -0700

New York Yankees DH Alex Rodriguez is not in the starting lineup Friday, April 15. OF Dustin Ackley is batting sixth as the designated hitter against Seattle Mariners SP Nathan Karns Friday.

Fantasy Tip: Rodriguez has just three hits in his first 22 at-bats (.136), and he went 0-for-4 with two strikeouts Wednesday, April 13. The veteran is going to receive the odd breather this season, and he should kick his early-season slump sooner than later. Ackley is nothing more than a low-end own in cavernous mixed and AL-only leagues. In daily contests, he is a potential low-priced flier Friday, though.
