New York Yankees owner Hal Steinbrenner said he's confident in the team's current infield and doesn't think the team needs to sign free-agent SS Stephen Drew (Red Sox). "I'm pretty content with our infield right now," Steinbrenner said. "I think guys like (Dean) Anna and (Yangervis) Solarte have been pleasant surprises. Kelly Johnson has been good. Derek (Jeter) is healthy. So far, so good. But it's early."

Yankees | Mark Teixeira placed on DL

Sat, 05 Apr 2014 08:18:55 -0700

The New York Yankees have placed 1B Mark Teixeira (hamstring) on the 15-day disabled list with a strained hamstring.

Fantasy Tip: Kelly Johnson will play first base while Teixeira is out of the lineup and is valuable in mixed leagues, especially since he'll likely add first base to his position eligibility. Yangervis Solarte is expected to see most of the starts at the hot corner now. Take a look at the utility infielder in AL-only formats.

Yankees | Mark Teixeira has strained hamstring

Fri, 04 Apr 2014 18:14:09 -0700

Updating a previous report, New York Yankees 1B Mark Teixeira (hamstring) suffered a strained right hamstring during the game Friday, April 4.

Fantasy Tip: Kelly Johnson likely will take over at first base if Teixeira misses a decent amount of time. Johnson could become an option in mixed leagues especially if he gains first base eligibility. Yangervis Solarte and Dean Anna could see time at third base if Johnson moves to first base. Both could have value in AL-only leagues, but Solarte should be the top target. Teixeira could be placed on the disabled list if the injury will take weeks to heal.
