Yankees | Mark Teixeira out vs. Texas

Wed, 29 Jul 2015 15:11:54 -0700

New York Yankees 1B Mark Teixeira is not in the starting lineup Wednesday, July 29. 1B Garrett Jones is starting at first base and hitting seventh against Texas Rangers SP Colby Lewis.

Fantasy Tip: Jones ($2,100, 4.2% of cap) does have four of his five home runs this year against right-handed pitchers, but he's not typically a very strong option for daily gamers unless he's at home hitting in the Bronx with the short porch in right field. Texas is a hitter-friendly environment, too, but Jones should still be seen as a sleeper pick on FantasyScore.

New York Yankees 3B Alex Rodriguez is not in the starting lineup against Minnesota Twins SP Kyle Gibson Sunday, July 26. 1B Mark Teixeira will serve as the designated hitter and is batting third in the lineup.

Fantasy Tip: Rodriguez ($5,500, 11.0% of cap) is receiving a day off after a terrific performance Saturday, July 25. Teixeira ($5,000, 10.0% of cap) has recorded at least two hits in six of his last seven games and is a solid starting option on FantasyScore.

Fantasy Tip: Teixeira ($5,000, 10.0%) didn't have any luck scoring or driving in a run during the game, but he continues to be one of the better hitters in baseball with a .904 OPS and .292 ISO for the season. FantasyScore players can start him with confidence in favorable matchups.

Yankees | Mark Teixeira continues resurgence

Sun, 19 Jul 2015 15:53:58 -0700

New York Yankees 1B Mark Teixeira went 3-for-4 with a solo home run in a 2-1 win over the Seattle Mariners Sunday, July 19, surpassing his 2014 totals for home runs and RBI.

Fantasy Tip: Teixeira ($5,000, 10.0% of cap) now has 23 homers and 63 RBI on the year, and although his batting average leaves a lot to be desired, his power upside makes him worth paying for at FantasyScore when he draws a friendly matchup against a right-handed pitcher.

Yankees | Mark Teixeira matches 2014 RBI total

Thu, 09 Jul 2015 19:13:47 -0700

New York Yankees 1B Mark Teixeira's RBI single in the third inning against the Oakland Athletics Thursday, July 9, gave him 62 RBI on the year, matching his total from all of last season.

Fantasy Tip: Teixeira ($5,000) finished last season with 22 homers and 62 RBI in 123 games, and he has matched both totals in just 79 games this season. His batting average is still just .244, but his power upside makes him worth the risk at FantasyScore against favorable matchups.

Tue, 30 Jun 2015 22:55:16 -0700

Yankees | Mark Teixeira returns to lineup

Wed, 24 Jun 2015 08:56:12 -0700

New York Yankees 1B Mark Teixeira (neck) returned to the lineup Wednesday, June 24, and is hitting cleanup.

Fantasy Tip: Tex ($4,900, 9.8% of cap) has a tough draw against Cole Hamels today, but he's a respectable .294-2-5 in 17 career at-bats against him. It's probably best to pass on FantasyScore today.

Yankees | Garrett Jones does yardwork

Tue, 23 Jun 2015 22:41:59 -0700

New York Yankees OF Garrett Jones went 1-for-5 with a solo home run Tuesday, June 23, against the Philadelphia Phillies while filling in for 1B Mark Teixeira (neck).

Fantasy Tip: Jones ($2,100; or 4.2% of cap) is likely headed back to the bench with Big Tex expected back Wednesday. However, if Jones starts again he is worth using at a low FantasyScore price.
