Yankees | Several Yankees return to lineup

Sat, 23 Jul 2016 11:17:59 -0700

New York Yankees OF Jacoby Ellsbury, C Brian McCann, SS Didi Gregorius and 1B Mark Teixeira will start against San Francisco Giants SP Johnny Cueto Saturday, July 23. Ellsbury will bat second, McCann willbat fourth, Gregorius will bat sixth and Teixeira will bat seventh.

Fantasy Tip: It makes sense that Joe Girardi wants all of his normal left-handed batters in the lineup against hard-throwing right hander Johnny Cueto. Ellsbury and McCann are probably the better bets for daily lineups, especially McCann, who has three homers and four runs batted in in 10 career at-bats against Cueto.

Yankees | Four Yankees regulars sitting Friday

Fri, 22 Jul 2016 13:34:21 -0700

New York Yankees OF Jacoby Ellsbury, 1B Mark Teixeira, C Brian McCann and SS Didi Gregorius are out of the starting lineup against San Francisco Giants left-handed SP Madison Bumgarner Friday, July 22. OF Aaron Hicks is in center field and hitting eighth, 2B Rob Refsnyder is at second and batting sixth, C Austin Romine is behind the dish and hitting seventh and 2B Ronald Torreyes is at the 6 and batting ninth. Also, 2B Starlin Castro moves up to the two-hole.

Fantasy Tip: All four players sitting are left-handed, which makes since with MadBum being one of the tougher southpaws in the league. None of Hicks, Refsnyder, Romine or Torreyes should be anything more than desperation daily stabs in the tough matchup. Castro, however, might be a contrarian play with the move up the batting order given the fact he's also been swinging a hot stick.

Yankees | Mark Teixeira back in the lineup

Wed, 20 Jul 2016 12:42:50 -0700

New York Yankees 1B Mark Teixeira (foot) is starting at first base and batting fifth against Baltimore Orioles SP Yovani Gallardo Wednesday, July 20.

Fantasy Tip: It's been a nightmare season for Teixeira, as the 36-year-old veteran sits with 22 runs, seven home runs, 20 RBI and a .186/.263/.305 slash line. Those numbers don't warrant a roster spot outside of cavernous mixed and AL-only leagues. After missing the past three games, he's a weak option in daily contests Wednesday, too.

Yankees | Mark Teixeira sitting out

Tue, 19 Jul 2016 13:45:34 -0700

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.

Yankees | Alex Rodriguez won't get starts at 1B

Mon, 18 Jul 2016 16:01:39 -0700

New York Yankees 3B Alex Rodriguez will not be getting starts at first base during the team's series against the Baltimore Orioles while 1B Mark Teixeira (foot) is sidelined. Manager Joe Girardi said he plans on sticking with 2B Rob Refsnyder at the position.

Fantasy Tip: Refsnyder might be getting more playing time for as long as Teixeira is out, but he's not someone worth rushing to the waiver wire for, as he has a very limited ceiling. Rodriguez could ultimately see starts at first down the road, which would bump his stock up a bit, but the fact remains that he's been a disaster in 2016.

Yankees | Mark Teixeira hopeful for Tuesday

Mon, 18 Jul 2016 12:30:34 -0700

Updating a previous report, New York Yankees 1B Mark Teixeira (foot) said his left foot is feeling better Monday, July 18, and he hopes to play Tuesday, July 19.

Fantasy Tip: Reiterating a previous tip, Teixeira's current production (22 runs, seven home runs, 20 RBI and a .186/.263/.305 slash line) is abysmal, and he isn't worth owning in the majority of seasonal leagues. At best, he's a low-end start in cavernous mixed and AL-only setups.

Yankees | Mark Teixeira sitting vs. Baltimore

Mon, 18 Jul 2016 12:19:22 -0700

New York Yankees 1B Mark Teixeira (foot) is not in the starting lineup Monday, July 18. INF Rob Refsnyder is starting at first base and batting ninth against Baltimore Orioles SP Kevin Gausman Monday.

Fantasy Tip: With just 22 runs, seven home runs, 20 RBI and a .186/.263/.305 slash line this season, Teixeira is nothing more than a desperation start in cavernous mixed and AL-only leagues. He shouldn't even be owned in shallow mixed leagues. View Refsnyder as a low-priced flier for daily contests Monday, and in seasonal settings, he's a potential depth piece in the deepest formats.

Yankees | Scans negative for Mark Teixeira

Sun, 17 Jul 2016 19:03:02 -0700

New York Yankees 1B Mark Teixeira (foot) had a CT scan on his left foot Sunday, July 17, but the results were negative. X-rays Saturday, July 16, were also negative, but manager Joe Girardi said Teixeira was dealing with soreness.

Fantasy Tip: While it appears Teixeira avoided a serious injury, he is hitting just .186 and isn't worth owning right now.

Yankees | Mark Teixeira out Sunday

Sun, 17 Jul 2016 13:57:24 -0700

New York Yankees 1B Mark Teixeira (knee) is not in the lineup Sunday, July 17, against Boston Red Sox SP David Price. 1B Rob Refsnyder will take Teixeira's place and bat eighth.

Fantasy Tip: Teixeira has some knee issues that primarily revolve around soreness, so all he should need is rest. Refsnyder has six hits in his last seven games and should be a decent player for DFS leagues.

Yankees | Mark Teixeira returns to action Sunday

Sun, 10 Jul 2016 08:09:33 -0700

New York Yankees 1B Mark Teixeira (knee) is back in the starting lineup against Cleveland Indians SP Carlos Carrasco Sunday, July 10. In addition, INF/OF Rob Refsnyder will play right field and bat eighth, while C Austin Romine starts behind the plate and bats ninth. C Brian McCann is receiving the day off.

Fantasy Tip: Texeira is batting just .185 during the month of July and is 1-for-11 in his career against Carrasco, so he is not a recommended fantasy option. Refsnyder and Romine should both be viewed as productive sources of salary cap relief in DFS.
