New York Yankees OF Carlos Beltran finished 2-for-4 with a solo shot against the San Francisco Giants on Sunday, July 24.
Fantasy Tip: Beltran has five multi-hit efforts over his last eight games and is batting a solid .305 with 21 homers and 63 RBI this season. He's a must-start in almost all regular fantasy leagues and is obviously a pretty good bet every time he suits up in DFS formats as well.

New York Yankees 1B Mark Teixeira (foot) is not in the starting lineup against Baltimore Orioles SP Vance Worley Tuesday, July 19. 2B Rob Refsnyder will start at first base, while OF Carlos Beltran will start in right field. 3B Alex Rodriguez will serve as the designated hitter and is batting fifth.
Fantasy Tip: Rodriguez has only four hits in 21 at-bats this month and is not a great fantasy option in most leagues. Beltran should be used in all starting lineups, while owners probably will be able to find better options than Refsnyder to use.

New York Yankees OF Carlos Beltran went 3-for-4 with a double Monday, July 18, against the Baltimore Orioles to push his average to .303.
Fantasy Tip: Beltran has the best average among the regular in the New York lineup, and he could be on the move by the July 31 non-waiver trade deadline if the team cannot get back into contention in a hurry. Fantasy owners know Beltran is a must-start whether he stays in New York or goes to a contender.

New York Yankees RP Aroldis Chapman and OF Carlos Beltran will be shopped if the Yankees don't improve in the coming days. Beltran has a limited no-trade clause, and both players are free agents at the end of the year.
Fantasy Tip: If Chapman is traded, there is a chance he could be placed in a setup role. However, it's hard to fathom a team relinquishing the assets to get him in that capacity. You'd have to think his value holds close to true if he's dealt, and he remains one of the top relievers in fantasy. Beltran could lose value, especially if he's dealt to a team in the National League because he can't play the outfield as frequently at his advanced age. Beltran is a guy you should look to sell high on in fantasy if possible.

New York Yankees DH Alex Rodriguez is in the starting lineup Friday, July 15, against the Boston Red Sox. OF Rob Refsnyder is on the bench and OF Carlos Beltran is back in right field against Red Sox SP Steven Wright.
Fantasy Tip: With four hits in his last seven games, A-Rod is still a risky fantasy play so the best bet is to leave him alone. Beltran has much better numbers (.299-19-56) so he should be in your lineup.
