New York Yankees OF Ichiro Suzuki has no current intentions of retiring after the 2014 season, even though his role is very unclear this season. "Retirement from baseball is something I haven't even thought about," Suzuki said.
Fantasy Tip: Suzuki will likely be relegated to a reserve outfield/DH role this season, so he'll mainly be useful in AL-only formats.

New York Yankees 1B Lyle Overbay will start in right field Monday, June 3, marking the first appearance for him in the outfield in his 1,375th career game.
Fantasy Tip: This isn't good news for Ichiro Suzuki, who figured to get more consistent playing time with Curtis Granderson (finger) back on the disabled list. If you have other pressing needs in a deep mixed leagues, you should consider cutting Suzuki.

New York Yankees OF Curtis Granderson (finger) underwent surgery Wednesday, May 29, to insert a pin into the broken knuckle on his left pinkie finger. General manager Brian Cashman said this won't affect Granderson's original timetable.
Fantasy Tip: Expect Grandy to be out another four to six weeks. This solidifies the playing time for Brett Gardner, Vernon Wells and Ichiro Suzuki. Brennan Boesch is only useful in AL-only setups.

Updating a previous report, New York Yankees OF Curtis Granderson (finger) had X-rays after the game Friday, May 24, which revealed a fracture of the fifth metacarpal. In other words, he has a fractured knuckle on his left pinkie finger.
Fantasy Tip: It's uncertain how much time Granderson will be forced to miss, but fantasy owners should be prepared for another disabled list stint for the Grandy man. Friday night was only his eighth game of the season after missing the first 38 games of the season recovering from a broken right forearm he suffered early in spring training. Alex Rodriguez missed 36 games last year with the same injury.
This is good news for Ichiro Suzuki and Vernon Wells owners that held onto them after the return of Granderson. They'll both return to consistent playing time in the outfield and should be owned in most mixed leagues, assuming Granderson heads back to the DL. Travis Hafner should return to full-time designated hitter duties for the most part, too.
