Yankees | Alex Rodriguez hit streak at 13 games

Fri, 29 May 2015 23:31:48 -0700

New York Yankees 3B Alex Rodriguez extended his hitting streak to 13 games Friday, May 29.

Fantasy Tip: Rodriguez ($4,800, 9.6% of cap) is making it very hard for Yankees manager Joe Girardi to sit him down. Don't be surprised to see A-Rod serving as DH a lot more if this keeps up. For now, whenever he is in the lineup he remains a captivating choice.

Yankees | Two Yanks have good history in Oakland

Thu, 28 May 2015 10:04:10 -0700

New York Yankees 3B Alex Rodriguez has 21 career home runs at O.co Coliseum, the home of the Oakland Athletics, while 1B Mark Teixeira has 20 career homers there. The Yankees start a four-game series with the A's Thursday, May 28.

Fantasy Tip: Rodriguez ($4,800, 9.6% of cap) has 11 homers on the year, while Teixeira ($4,800) leads the team with 14 dingers in 2015. The Coliseum typically isn't a productive environment for the long ball, though, but facing A's starter Kendall Graveman, who is allowing 1.2 homers per nine innings this year, could be good news for both A-Rod and Teixeira tonight.

Yankees | Alex Rodriguez moves up RBI list

Wed, 27 May 2015 13:28:25 -0700

New York Yankees 3B Alex Rodriguez hit a three-run home run in a winning effort Wednesday, May 27, and it gave him 1,995 career RBI, which moved him past Lou Gehrig (1,993) for third place on the all-time RBI list. Next up for Rodriguez is former San Francisco Giants OF Barry Bonds, who finished with 1,996 RBI. Rodriguez now has 11 home runs on the season and 26 RBI. He also needs just 19 more hits to reach 3,000 for his career.

Fantasy Tip: Rodriguez ($4,800, 9.6% of cap) already has proven that he is a reliable fantasy asset after sitting out all of 2014 due to a performance-enhancing drug suspension. He should continue to be a valuable FantasyScore asset, too, when facing softer-throwing hurlers.

Tue, 19 May 2015 12:04:06 -0700

Fantasy Tip: Rodriguez ($4,800, 9.6% of cap) could lose more playing time this week in the series against the Washington Nationals, so be wary of relying on him at FantasyScore until later this week.

Yankees | A-Rod tearing up Tampa Bay

Mon, 11 May 2015 22:51:05 -0700

New York Yankees 3B Alex Rodriguez (hamstring) went 2-for-4 with a solo home run Tuesday, May 12, against the Tampa Bay Rays. He had some left hamstring tightness in the game, but was able to stay in.

Fantasy Tip: A-Rod has 50 homers in 209 career games against the Rays, including three homers and five RBIs this season. He has reached base safely in 11 of his 19 plate appearances in four road games against Tampa Bay. FantasyScore players will want to roll with him at just $4,800 (or 9.6% of cap) while the Bronx Bombers are in St. Pete.

Fantasy Tip: A-Rod ($4,800, 9.6% of your cap) is likely to return to the lineup tomorrow and remains a midrange 3B option.

Yankees | Alex Rodriguez not playing

Sat, 09 May 2015 08:45:57 -0700

New York Yankees 3B Alex Rodriguez is not in the starting lineup Saturday, May 9.

Fantasy Tip: Rodriguez ($4,800, 9.6% of cap) has played well this season but is receiving a day off. Chris Young ($3,500, 7.0% of cap) is receiving a start Saturday and could be a solid starting option for owners on FantasyScore.

Yankees | Alex Rodriguez hits home run No. 661

Thu, 07 May 2015 17:17:04 -0700

New York Yankees 3B Alex Rodriguez hit his 661st career home run Thursday, May 7, against the Baltimore Orioles. Rodriguez passed Willie Mays for fourth on the MLB's all-time home run list.

Fantasy Tip: Rodriguez's ($4,800, 9.6% of cap) batting average has fallen to .231 after a very hot start to the 2015 season, although a .250 BABIP can take the majority of the blame. Rodriguez is still drawing a walk 15.0% of the time and his current .264 ISO is slightly above his career average. Rodriguez should be a part of any Yankees stacks in favorable matchups on FantasyScore.

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.
