Yankees | Alex Rodriguez launches a pair

Fri, 17 Apr 2015 18:20:25 -0700

New York Yankees 3B Alex Rodriguez hit a pair of home runs against the Tampa Bay Rays Friday, April 17, notching his first multi-home run game since May of 2012 in the process.

Fantasy Tip: Rodriguez ($2,600, 5.2% of cap) was a bit of an unknown heading into the season after being suspended last year, but he already has four home runs and is off to a strong start. Whether his body holds up remains to be seen, but for now, he is a steal at FantasyScore.

Yankees | Alex Rodriguez out Tuesday

Tue, 14 Apr 2015 12:51:42 -0700

New York Yankees 3B Alex Rodriguez is not in the starting lineup against Baltimore Orioles SP Miguel Gonzalez Tuesday, April 14. 1B Garrett Jones is serving as the designated hitter and is hitting sixth in the lineup.

Fantasy Tip: Jones ($2,100, 4.2% of cap) should be considered at FantasyScore as a low-priced option facing a right-handed pitcher. However, the wet weather in Baltimore may persuade you to look elsewhere Tuesday.

Yankees | Alex Rodriguez starting at 3B

Mon, 13 Apr 2015 16:34:09 -0700

New York Yankees 3B Alex Rodriguez is starting at third base for the first time this year Monday, April 13, to help give 3B Chase Headley a day off. Manager Joe Girardi said Rodriguez will also play first base this year, and Rodriguez is expected to have one of the next two days off.

Fantasy Tip: Rodriguez ($2,600, 5.2% of cap) has looked good so far this year, hitting .300 (6-for-20 with a home run and six RBI). Against left-handers tonight like Wei-Yin Chen, Rodriguez is a fairly strong daily game play while he continues to show good plate discipline and an ability to turn around fastballs.

Sat, 11 Apr 2015 07:47:14 -0700

Yankees | Alex Rodriguez goes deep

Thu, 09 Apr 2015 21:03:56 -0700

New York Yankees 3B Alex Rodriguez hit his first home run of the season in a 6-3 loss to the Toronto Blue Jays Thursday, April 9. In addition to the solo home run, he added a walk in four plate appearances.

Fantasy Tip: Although the homer was a positive sign, Rodriguez ($2,600, 5.2% of cap) is hitting just .222 through three games. He is a risky play at FantasyScore.

Yankees | Alex Rodriguez at DH in opener

Mon, 06 Apr 2015 09:28:45 -0700

New York Yankees 3B Alex Rodriguez is serving as the designated hitter and is hitting seventh in the opening day lineup Monday, April 6.

Fantasy Tip: Rodriguez ($3,300, 6.6% of cap) isn't a bad sleeper play on opening day at FantasyScore. He's showed in spring training that he can still turn on a fastball and do some damage after being suspended for all of 2014. Drew Hutchison, the Blue Jays' starter in the opener, has had trouble keeping the ball in the park early in his career, too.

Yankees | Alex Rodriguez plays first base again

Thu, 02 Apr 2015 17:10:06 -0700

New York Yankees DH Alex Rodriguez played six innings at first base Thursday, April 2. It was his second time playing first base this week. Manager Joe Girardi said he would have no qualms playing Rodriguez at first base during the regular season, but he remains third on the depth chart behind Mark Teixeira and Garrett Jones.

Fantasy Tip: Another avenue to playing time for Rodriguez ($3,300, 6.6% of cap) would help his season long fantasy value. He remains little more than a late-round flier for power-starved drafters, though. He is, however, a serviceable FantasyScore option at the hot corner for gamers looking to spend heavily elsewhere on their roster.

Yankees | Alex Rodriguez goes deep again

Sat, 28 Mar 2015 18:17:07 -0700

New York Yankees DH Alex Rodriguez hit his third home run of the spring Saturday, March 28, and is now hitting .306.

Fantasy Tip: Rodriguez ($3,300, 6.6% of cap) is worth a late-round flier in seasonal leagues, but it would be a surprise if he is able to stay healthy and productive for the entire season. Be prepared to cut him loose for a better option.

Yankees | Alex Rodriguez subject to more testing

Thu, 26 Mar 2015 13:20:09 -0700

New York Yankees DH Alex Rodriguez is subject to increased drug testing by Major League Baseball as a result of his 162-game suspension for using performance-enhancing drugs, according to baseball commissioner Rob Manfred.

Fantasy Tip: This news shouldn't sway your outlook of Rodriguez's ($3,300) fantasy stock. He is a late-round flier, and the risk associated with his age (39) and health (just 181 plate appearances since the beginning of 2013) are far more prominent than anything related to performance-enhancing drugs. However, Rodriguez is having a nice spring (a double, two home runs and a .286/.394/.536 slash line) and could be a nice speculative grab in the endgame of drafts, especially with his pedigree and news of ample at-bats.

Yankees | Alex Rodriguez pushing for full-time role

Wed, 25 Mar 2015 12:13:48 -0700

New York Yankees DH Alex Rodriguez could be the full-time designated hitter this season. Both general manager Brian Cashman and manager Joe Girardi have indicated they believe Rodriguez can contribute on a regular basis.

Fantasy Tip: Through 33 plate appearances this spring, Rodriguez ($3,300, 6.6% of cap) has a double, two home runs and a .286/.394/.536 slash line. While the production doesn't significantly stand out, he could be a nice speculative grab in the endgame of drafts, especially with his pedigree and likelihood of ample at-bats. In FantasyScore contests, there is a lot of room for profit in his cap-friendly price, too.
