Yankees | Alex Rodriguez ties Willie Mays

Fri, 01 May 2015 19:03:08 -0700

New York Yankees 3B Alex Rodriguez hit a pinch-hit, solo home run against the Boston Red Sox Friday, May 1, to tie Willie Mays for fourth on the all-time list with 660 home runs.

Fantasy Tip: Rodriguez ($4,500, 9.0% of cap) has slowed down a bit after a hot start, but he still has six homers and a .557 slugging percentage. His power potential makes him a high-risk, high-reward option at FantasyScore.

Yankees | Alex Rodriguez sitting vs. Boston

Fri, 01 May 2015 12:50:33 -0700

New York Yankees 3B Alex Rodriguez is not in the starting lineup against the Boston Red Sox Friday, May 1. 1B Garrett Jones is hitting seventh as the designated hitter Friday.

Fantasy Tip: Make sure to avoid Rodriguez ($4,500, 9.0% of cap) in all fantasy formats Friday. He is rewarding those who took a speculative leap of faith with him this season, though. He has 13 runs, five home runs and 13 RBI, although his batting average is just .232. Jones ($2,100, 4.2% of cap) is off to a miserable start and just 5-for-27 at the dish. Consider him a low-priced flier for FantasyScore contests, but you should aim higher at first base.

Yankees | Alex Rodriguez slumping

Wed, 29 Apr 2015 15:43:23 -0700

New York Yankees 3B Alex Rodriguez went 0-for-6 with four strikeouts in a loss Wednesday, April 29, and he is 5-for-36 (.139) since April 17, when he hit two home runs. The four-strikeout game was just his fifth four-strikeout game of his career and first since 2008. He remains one home run shy of tying Willie Mays for fourth place on the all-time home run list with 660.

Fantasy Tip: Rodriguez's ($4,500, 9.0% of cap) slump of late is leading his owners to wonder whether his quick start was a mirage. It remains to be seen, but until he picks things back up, it might be a good idea to avoid him at FantasyScore, depending on the matchup. Trying to get career homer No. 660 out of the way could be causing him to press at the plate, too.

Yankees | Alex Rodriguez not playing Tuesday

Tue, 28 Apr 2015 12:40:37 -0700

New York Yankees DH Alex Rodriguez is out of the lineup Tuesday, April 28, against the Tampa Bay Rays. 1B Garrett Jones is the DH.

Fantasy Tip: Rodriguez ($2,600, 5.2% of cap) is likely sitting because the Rays have a right-handed pitcher (Jake Odorizzi) in the lineup. The timing is a little weird because he is close to his 660th home run, but it's conventional baseball logic. Jones ($2,100, 4.2% of cap) isn't a bad replacement for one night.

Yankees | Alex Rodriguez out of lineup

Thu, 23 Apr 2015 09:32:13 -0700

New York Yankees DH Alex Rodriguez is out of the lineup Thursday, April 23, against the Detroit Tigers.

Fantasy Tip: Chris Young ($3,000, 6.0% of your cap) is in right with Carlos Beltran at DH. Young is a great low-end flyer on FantasyScore with his .368-4-9 line.

Yankees | Alex Rodriguez struggles vs. David Price

Wed, 22 Apr 2015 15:08:09 -0700

New York Yankees 3B Alex Rodriguez has struck out 17 times in 43 at-bats against Detroit Tigers SP David Price. Price is pitching against the Yankees Wednesday, April 22.

Fantasy Tip: With Rodriguez's ($2,600, 5.2% of cap) lack of success against Price, it might not be the best time to utilize him in FantasyScore contests Wednesday, especially with him in a 1-for-13 drought at the dish.

Yankees | Alex Rodriguez pacing Yanks

Mon, 20 Apr 2015 09:57:47 -0700

New York Yankees 3B Alex Rodriguez currently leads the team in on-base percentage (.429), slugging percentage (.714), home runs (four) and RBI (11). He is two homers shy of tying former OF Willie Mays for fourth on the all-time home run list. Rodriguez currently has 658 career home runs.

Fantasy Tip: Rodriguez ($2,600, 5.2% of cap) has effectively silenced his critics and doubters, at least to start 2015. He's healthy and has the bat speed to hit for serious pop this year. He should be owned in all fantasy leagues, and he should be a daily consideration at FantasyScore, at least while he's hot at the plate.

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.
