Yankees | Jose Pirela playing Sunday

Sun, 31 May 2015 12:40:53 -0700

New York Yankees 2B Jose Pirela will play second base and bat ninth against the Oakland Athletics Sunday, May 31. 2B Stephen Drew is getting the day off.

Fantasy Tip: Pirela ($2,100, 4.2% of cap) is only batting .212 through 33 at-bats this season and should not be under consideration for FantasyScore lineups.

Yankees | Brian McCann out Sunday

Sun, 31 May 2015 12:33:18 -0700

New York Yankees C Brian McCann is not in the starting lineup against the Oakland Athletics Sunday, May 31. C J.R. Murphy will start behind the plate.

Fantasy Tip: McCann is getting the day off and should be removed from all daily fantasy lineups. Murphy ($1,700, 3.4% of cap) is an inexpensive option for FantasyScore owners who generally punt the catcher position.

Yankees | Dellin Betances continues dominance

Sun, 31 May 2015 05:23:51 -0700

New York Yankees RP Dellin Betances struck out three batters over 1 1/3 innings to record his 10th hold of the season during the Yankees 5-3 win over the Oakland Athletics Saturday, May 30.

Fantasy Tip: Holds aren't the most common fantasy category, but strikeouts, ERA and WHIP are. Betances has yet to allow an earned run through 27 1/3 innings this season, and he has 44 punchouts (14.5 K/9) and a 0.77 WHIP. Add his four wins and one save, and he is a worthy arm in all formats. Pitching in high-leverage situations will continue to yield the occasional win and save. Plus, those ratios are roto gold. Betances would also be the next man up in the ninth inning if Andrew Miller loses his luster or succumbs to injury.

Yankees | Carlos Beltran heating up

Sun, 31 May 2015 05:18:38 -0700

New York Yankees OF Carlos Beltran hit a two-run home run and drove in three total runs during the Yankees 5-3 win over the Oakland Athletics Saturday, May 30.

Fantasy Tip: Beltran ($3,700, 7.4% of cap) has a hit in all but one of his last 18 games and sports a .324/.338/.559 slash line during the stretch. All four of his long flies have come during the span, along with eight runs and 12 RBI. Beltran is far past his prime, but it doesn't mean he can't help in deep mixed leagues and FantasyScore contests, especially while he is dialed in at the dish.

Yankees | Brian McCann on homer tear

Fri, 29 May 2015 23:39:36 -0700

New York Yankees C Brian McCann homered in his fourth straight game Friday, May 29, against the Oakland Athletics. He joins Mike Stanley (1993) as the only Yankees players to homer in four consecutive games.

Fantasy Tip: McCann ($4,500, 9.0% of cap) appears to be regaining his home-run streak. He has been disappointing more often than rewarding as a Yankee, but if he is getting warmer at the plate then he should be considered for your lineup.

Yankees | Alex Rodriguez hit streak at 13 games

Fri, 29 May 2015 23:31:48 -0700

New York Yankees 3B Alex Rodriguez extended his hitting streak to 13 games Friday, May 29.

Fantasy Tip: Rodriguez ($4,800, 9.6% of cap) is making it very hard for Yankees manager Joe Girardi to sit him down. Don't be surprised to see A-Rod serving as DH a lot more if this keeps up. For now, whenever he is in the lineup he remains a captivating choice.

Yankees | Slade Heathcott going on DL

Fri, 29 May 2015 16:29:51 -0700

New York Yankees OF Slade Heathcott (quadriceps) was diagnosed with a Grade 2 strain of his right quadriceps, and he'll be put on the disabled list. OF Ramon Flores will be called up and join the team Saturday, May 30.

Fantasy Tip: With Heathcott injured, Chris Young ($3,200, 6.4% of cap) effectively becomes the starting center field, with Jacoby Ellsbury also on the shelf. It'll increase his value in deep mixed and AL-only leagues, but it could also be hurtful, since he has struggled against right-handed pitchers. At FantasyScore, only consider him an attractive value pick when he's facing a lefty.

Yankees | Masahiro Tanaka to return Wednesday

Fri, 29 May 2015 16:28:15 -0700

New York Yankees SP Masahiro Tanaka (forearm, wrist) will be activated from the disabled list to start against the Seattle Mariners Wednesday, June 3, according to manager Joe Girardi. Tanaka made two minor league starts for Class AAA Scranton/Wilkes-Barre, and Girardi expects him to throw around 80 pitches in his first start back.

Fantasy Tip: Tanaka ($7,200, 14.4% of cap) will be an extremely risky option on FantasyScore in his first start back next week. After that, though, as he continues to build arm strength, he'll be a risk/reward play in daily games. Don't forget that he continues to pitch through a partially torn ulnar collateral ligament in his elbow, though.

Yankees | Chris Young starting in CF

Fri, 29 May 2015 16:13:17 -0700

New York Yankees OF Chris Young is starting in center field and hitting eighth in the batting order against Oakland Athletics SP Sonny Gray Friday, May 29, with OF Slade Heathcott (hamstring) out.

Fantasy Tip: Young ($3,200, 6.4% of cap) normally only starts against left-handed pitchers, but he's forced into the lineup due to an injury. That makes him a player to avoid at FantasyScore, especially while facing the American League ERA leader heading into the game.

Yankees | No Mark Teixeira Friday

Fri, 29 May 2015 16:10:59 -0700

New York Yankees 1B Mark Teixeira is not in the starting lineup Friday, May 29. 1B Garrett Jones is starting at first base and hitting sixth in the batting order against Oakland Athletics SP Sonny Gray.

Fantasy Tip: Jones ($2,100, 4.2% of cap) does have his only home run of the season against a right-hander, but he's only 11-for-43 (.256) against them, and he'll be facing the American League ERA leader in Gray tonight. Jones is a low-end first base play this evening.

Yankees | Brian McCann heating up

Fri, 29 May 2015 09:44:40 -0700

New York Yankees C Brian McCann homered in his third straight game Thursday, May 28, and he has at least one hit and an RBI in six straight games while going 8-for-19 with 10 RBI in that span.

Fantasy Tip: McCann ($4,500, 9.0% of cap) is hitting only .254 (36-for-142), but he does have seven long balls and 31 RBI on the season. His recent hot streak should make him more attractive on FantasyScore. However, going up against Oakland A's starter Sonny Gray on the road in a pitcher-friendly environment tonight makes him more of a weak play.

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 | Masahiro Tanaka to return next week?

Thu, 28 May 2015 16:15:01 -0700

New York Yankees SP Masahiro Tanaka (forearm, wrist) is flying out west Thursday, May 28. Manager Joe Girardi said as long as Tanaka is feeling well, he'll make a start early next week against the Seattle Mariners.

Fantasy Tip: Until Tanaka ($7,200, 14.4% of cap) is seemingly inevitably shut down or undergoes Tommy John surgery to repair the tear in his ulnar collateral ligament, he is worth using on FantasyScore. Owners should be trying get every ounce of production out of Tanaka while they can, similarly to the Yankees.

Athletics | Josh Phegley starting vs. Yankees

Thu, 28 May 2015 14:22:30 -0700

Oakland Athletics C Josh Phegley is starting behind the plate and batting eighth against the New York Yankees Thursday, May 28. C Stephen Vogt is batting fifth and playing first base Thursday.

Fantasy Tip: Over his last 13 games, Phegley ($1,800, 3.6% of cap) is just 7-for-39 with a run, a home run and two RBI. He should be viewed as nothing more than a desperation source of cap relief in FantasyScore contests. Vogt ($5,300, 10.6% of cap) has only received 34 plate appearances against left-handed pitchers this season, and he is typically viewed as a superior hitter against righties. Still, he is a top-tier catcher option Thursday, but you'll have to spend up to roster him.

Yankees | Two Yanks have good history in Oakland

Thu, 28 May 2015 10:04:10 -0700

New York Yankees 3B Alex Rodriguez has 21 career home runs at O.co Coliseum, the home of the Oakland Athletics, while 1B Mark Teixeira has 20 career homers there. The Yankees start a four-game series with the A's Thursday, May 28.

Fantasy Tip: Rodriguez ($4,800, 9.6% of cap) has 11 homers on the year, while Teixeira ($4,800) leads the team with 14 dingers in 2015. The Coliseum typically isn't a productive environment for the long ball, though, but facing A's starter Kendall Graveman, who is allowing 1.2 homers per nine innings this year, could be good news for both A-Rod and Teixeira tonight.
