Yankees | Chris Capuano smacked around

Tue, 28 Jul 2015 18:03:18 -0700

New York Yankees SP Chris Capuano allowed five runs and five walks while retiring just two batters in his start Tuesday, July 28, against the Texas Rangers. He is the first starter to allow at least five runs and walk five batters while lasting less than an inning since former Atlanta Braves SP Jaret Wright in 2004.

Fantasy Tip: FantasyScore players who rolled the dice on Capuano ($3,200, 6.4% of cap) are certainly displeased. Yet again, it shows that it pays not to skimp on pitching, as it makes or breaks you most days in DFS.

Yankees | Chris Capuano starting Tuesday

Tue, 28 Jul 2015 13:40:36 -0700

New York Yankees SP Chris Capuano is making the start against the Texas Rangers Tuesday, July 28, in order to give extra rest to SPs Masahiro Tanaka and Michael Pineda. It will be Capuano's first start since May 29. He's 0-4 with a 5.64 ERA this year. He was 0-3 with a 6.39 ERA in three May starts before moving to the bullpen.

Fantasy Tip: Given Capuano's ineffectiveness as a starter for the Yankees this year, you should avoid him everywhere in this spot start.

Yankees | Adam Warren sticking in rotation

Tue, 02 Jun 2015 07:11:47 -0700

New York Yankees SP Adam Warren will remain in the starting rotation with SP Masahiro Tanaka (forearm) returning. SP Chris Capuano is headed to the bullpen.

Fantasy Tip: Warren ($3,400, 6.8% of cap) is a fringe starter worth considering in great matchups on FantasyScore.

Yankees | Masahiro Tanaka to be on pitch count

Fri, 29 May 2015 09:12:18 -0700

New York Yankees SP Masahiro Tanaka (forearm, wrist) will be on a pitch count of between 80 to 90 pitches in his first start back from the disabled list, which is expected to come either Tuesday, June 2, or Wednesday, June 3, against the Seattle Mariners, according to manager Joe Girardi. Tanaka will also be given an extra day in between starts as much as possible. The likeliest candidate to be demoted from the rotation to make room for Tanaka is SP Adam Warren or SP Chris Capuano, who is 0-2 with a 7.36 ERA in two starts since coming off his own DL stint.

Fantasy Tip: Tanaka ($7,200, 14.4% of cap) should still be owned in all fantasy formats, but he's a much more risky commodity than he was in 2014, and each of his starts for the rest of the season should be viewed as risk/reward on FantasyScore. Avoiding him next week against the M's in his first start back would be prudent.

Yankees | Chris Capuano starting Sunday

Fri, 15 May 2015 15:27:59 -0700

New York Yankees SP Chris Capuano is starting against the Kansas City Royals Sunday, May 17.

Fantasy Tip: Capuano ($3,200, 6.4% of cap) has only thrown 14 2/3 innings over three minor league starts this season, and the start Sunday will be his season debut at the highest level. The Royals are the third-ranked scoring team in baseball, and they have a .308/361/.456 slash line against left-handed starters this season. Start Capuano at your own risk in all fantasy formats Sunday.

Yankees | Chris Capuano to enter rotation

Thu, 14 May 2015 20:38:28 -0700

New York Yankees SP Chris Capuano will replace SP Chase Whitley (elbow) in the rotation, manager Joe Girardi said Thursday, May 14.

Fantasy Tip: Capuano ($3,200, 6.4% of cap) is coming back from a quadriceps injury, and after posting a 4.35 ERA in 12 starts with the Yankees last year, there is no reason to take a chance on him at FantasyScore whenever he makes his first start of 2015.

Yankees | Chris Capuano solid in rehab game

Tue, 12 May 2015 22:39:13 -0700

New York Yankees SP Chris Capuano (quadriceps) allowed two runs and seven hits in six innings in a minor-league rehab game for Class AAA Scranton/Wilkes-Barre (Pa.) Tuesday, May 12.

Fantasy Tip: It's uncertain if Capuano will return to the starting lineup or work in a long relief role upon his return. He is worth a look in AL-only weekly formats if you have roster flexibility.

Yankees | Chris Capuano to throw Tuesday

Mon, 11 May 2015 22:50:09 -0700

New York Yankees SP Chris Capuano (quadriceps) is scheduled to throw approximately 90 pitches for Class AAA Scranton/Wilkes-Barre (Pa.) Tuesday, May 12, in what might be one of his final rehab outings.

Fantasy Tip: It's uncertain if Cappy will return to the starting rotation or if he'll work in long relief. FantasyScore players will want to wait and see him officially return and prove his health before trusting him again.

Yankees | Chris Capuano makes rehab start

Wed, 22 Apr 2015 22:31:48 -0700

New York Yankees SP Chris Capuano (quadriceps) worked two hitless innings in an extended spring game start Wednesday, April 22. "No problems," Capuano said. "A little rusty with the pitches." He threw 18 of his 24 pitches for strikes.

Fantasy Tip: Capuano is expected to return in mid-May, and his role is yet to be determined. He might work in the rotation or he could be used in long relief. FantasyScore owners need to avoid him until his role becomes more clear.

Yankees | Chris Capuano still a ways off

Wed, 15 Apr 2015 21:11:13 -0700

New York Yankees SP Chris Capuano (quadriceps) is still about a month away from coming off the 15-day disabled list, manager Joe Girardi said Wednesday, April 15.

Fantasy Tip: Capuano is making his way back from a strained right quadriceps. FantasyScore need not bother with Capuano until he can officially return and knock off the rust in at least a start or two.
