Yankees | Mark Teixeira out three days

Thu, 26 May 2016 11:03:58 -0700

New York Yankees 1B Mark Teixeira (neck) will be out of the lineup for the next three days after receiving a cortisone shot in his neck.

Fantasy Tip: Right now, the Yanks don't think Tex will need to go on the DL. But given his injury history and reputation as a slow healer, that could very well end up happening. Plan for that if you own him. You can cut bait in shallow leagues if you haven't already. His 31 home runs from a season ago seem like a distant memory. Bench him for the foreseeable future in deeper leagues. Dustin Ackley could benefit the most as long as Teixeira is sidelined, but he is really only depth for AL-only owners.

Yankees | Mark Teixeira to get cortisone shot

Wed, 25 May 2016 19:42:46 -0700

New York Yankees 1B Mark Teixeira (neck) is scheduled to receive a cortisone shot to alleviate the pain caused by neck spasms. The team does not believe the injury is serious enough to warrant a stint on the disabled list, according to manager Joe Girardi.

Fantasy Tip: Texeira is batting just .195 with three home runs and 12 RBI through 42 games this season. Given his lengthy injury history and lack of production this year, he can probably be let go in most mixed fantasy leagues.

Yankees | Mark Teixeira's injury a concern?

Wed, 25 May 2016 15:32:21 -0700

New York Yankees 1B Mark Teixeira's (neck) neck spasms are a cause for concern with manager Joe Girardi. Teixeira had an MRI exam Tuesday, May 24, and the team is waiting for the results.

Fantasy Tip: Tex's neck problems combined with his ugly .195/.294/.282 slash line and three home runs mean he probably should be dumped to the waiver wire in most mixed leagues. If you're forced to hang on, keep him benched until he's healthy enough to return or shows signs of life. Dustin Ackley is the main backup at first base and could gain significant value in cavernous mixed and AL-only leagues as corner infield depth if Teixeira is forced to go on the DL.

Yankees | Mark Teixeira out with a neck injury

Wed, 25 May 2016 13:01:39 -0700

New York Yankees 1B Mark Teixeira (neck) is not in the starting lineup Wednesday, May 25, and manager Joe Girardi said there is no timetable for Teixeira's return, but that the first baseman will visit with the team doctor Wednesday. 2B Dustin Ackley is starting at first base and batting sixth against Toronto Blue Jays SP Marco Estrada Wednesday.

Fantasy Tip: Teixeira is off to a miserable start to 2016 with just three home runs and a .195/.294/.282 slash line. It isn't out of the question to move on from the 36-year-old veteran in most mixed leagues given his lengthy injury history. View Ackley as a low-priced flier in daily contests Wednesday.

Yankees | Mark Teixeira denies knee issue

Sun, 22 May 2016 17:44:01 -0700

New York Yankees 1B Mark Teixeira had his right knee wrapped in ice following a 5-4 win over the Oakland Athletics Sunday, May 22, but he said he was fine.

Fantasy Tip: Teixeira has just one hit in his last 21 at-bats, and he is hitting .193 for the year. Even if he isn't injured, he is tough to justify owning outside of AL-only formats.

Yankees | Mark Teixeira sitting again

Fri, 20 May 2016 15:47:33 -0700

New York Yankees 1B Mark Teixeira is out of the lineup for the second straight day Friday, May 20. 2B Dustin Ackley is starting at first base again and is batting seventh against Oakland Athletics SP Sonny Gray.

Fantasy Tip: There haven't been any indications that Teixeira is hurt, but his putrid .203/.307/.301 line has earned him a spot on the bench for the time being. Despite his 31 home runs last year, Tex looks extremely overmatched this year and isn't worth keeping around in shallow leagues. You should've already been benching him for better options in other deeper leagues. Ackley is hitting .152 (7-for-46) with no home runs and is a desperation flier in daily leagues tonight.

Yankees | Mark Teixeira out of lineup

Thu, 19 May 2016 15:59:18 -0700

New York Yankees 1B Mark Teixeira is not in the starting lineup Thursday, May 19. 2B Dustin Ackley is starting at first base and is hitting seventh against Oakland Athletics SP Kendall Graveman.

Fantasy Tip: Tex is in a miserable rut and has a slash line of .203/.307/.301 on the year with three home runs and 11 RBI. He has just four extra-base hits this month. If this continues, we could see him benched more often, especially once Alex Rodriguez returns from the DL shortly. Teixeira should be left to the waiver wire in shallow leagues, and he's not a viable starting option right now even in deeper leagues. There's promise, though, as the veteran managed 31 home runs in 2015.

Yankees | Mark Teixeira returns Thursday

Thu, 12 May 2016 12:38:00 -0700

New York Yankees 1B Mark Teixeira (neck) is back in the starting lineup and is hitting third against Baltimore Orioles SP Ubaldo Jimenez Thursday, May 12.

Fantasy Tip: Tex is not a great option in daily formats tonight. He's hitting just .202/.325/.298 with three home runs and 11 RBI in 104 at-bats. He showed his power upside at an advanced at last year with 31 bombs, but it could prove very difficult to come close to repeating that in 2016, especially since he's injury-prone. You'd be wise to wait at least a game or two to re-insert him into traditional lineups, too.

Yankees | Mark Teixeira out again with neck spasms

Wed, 11 May 2016 13:29:14 -0700

New York Yankees 1B Mark Teixeira (neck) is not in the starting lineup against the Kansas City Royals Wednesday, May 11, because of neck spasms.

Fantasy Tip: Teixeira is also off to an awful start with a .202/.325/.298 slash line and just 14 runs, three home runs and 11 RBI. He flashed his upside with 31 home runs in just 462 plate appearances last season, but he also battled injuries. Leave him on your benches in all leagues until he returns and heats up at the plate, and in shallow leagues, it isn't out of the question to replace Teixeira.

Yankees | Mark Teixeira out of Tuesday lineup

Tue, 10 May 2016 13:09:51 -0700

New York Yankees 1B Mark Teixeira is not starting Tuesday, May 10, against the Kansas City Royals. 2B Dustin Ackley will bat fifth and play at first base against Royals SP Kris Medlen.

Fantasy Tip: According to the New York Post, Teixeira is in a 4-for-37 slide over his past 11 games, with one RBI and no extra-base hits. He isn't the only Yankee to slump badly early in the season, but it sounds like Teixeira is getting a night off just to rest. Needless to say, he shouldn't be in your fantasy lineup while this slump is going on. Ackley is 3-for-16 (.188) in the last week and carries no fantasy value for daily lineups.
