Sun, 02 Aug 2015 10:22:12 -0700
Fantasy Tip: McCann ($4,900, 9.8% of cap) was out of the starting lineup for two games because the team faced left-handed starting pitchers on consecutive days. He is just 1-for-9 against Samardzija in his career and is not a great option in FantasyScore this afternoon.
Sun, 02 Aug 2015 10:20:03 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Beltran ($3,700, 7.4% of cap) is a lifetime .357 hitter (5-for-14) against Samardzija, with a double, home run and two RBIs, making this a favorable FantasyScore matchup for him.
Sun, 02 Aug 2015 10:16:58 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Even though his batting average remains below the Mendoza Line, Drew ($2,500, 5.0% of cap) is hitting .267 with a home run and three RBIs in 30 at-bats since the All-Star break. That being said, he is hitting 64 points worse against right-handed pitching (.175) than against lefties (.239), so he should be avoided in FantasyScore this afternoon.

New York Yankees SS Brendan Ryan will start at second base and hit eighth in the order Saturday, Aug. 1, against the Chicago White Sox and LHP John Danks. 2B Stephen Drew is out of the lineup once again.
Fantasy Tip: Ryan ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) is 6-for-16 over his past three starts, and he has both scored and driven in four runs in that time. FantasyScore owners should be taking note and using Ryan as a tremendous source of cap relief.
Sat, 01 Aug 2015 13:34:27 -0700
New York Yankees C Brian McCann is out of the starting lineup Saturday, Aug. 1, against the Chicago White Sox and LHP John Danks. C J.R. Murphy will start behind the plate and hit seventh in the order.
Fantasy Tip: Murphy ($1,700, 3.4% of cap) is hitting a modest .250 against left-handed pitching this season, but he'll offer cap relief for FantasyScore owners willing to punt the catcher position.
Sat, 01 Aug 2015 13:29:53 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Young ($3,000, 6.0% of cap) is maintaining a .370 batting average against left-handed pitchers this season, and he continues to be a strong FantasyScore option whenever he starts.
Sat, 01 Aug 2015 06:15:02 -0700
New York Yankees SP Nathan Eovaldi allowed three runs on seven hits and three walks while striking out five batters over 5 2/3 innings to earn his 11th win of the season during the Yankees' 13-6 victory over the Chicago White Sox Friday, July 31.
Fantasy Tip: Eovaldi ($6,000, 12.0% of cap) is a great target for owners chasing wins. His current 4.30 ERA has room for improvement based on his 3.52 FIP, however, his lack of strikeouts (6.5 K/9) and WHIP (1.49) won't do owners any favors. Still, he has limited the damage over his past eight outings and sports a 6-0 record with a 3.06 ERA. He warrants attention.
Sat, 01 Aug 2015 06:00:16 -0700
Fantasy Tip: It could be argued Teixeira ($5,300, 10.6% of cap) has been the biggest surprise of the 2015 fantasy season. He has 28 home runs and leads the American League in RBI with 78. Perhaps, best of all, though, is he hasn't been a batting average anchor with a. 269 mark for the year. Outside of daunting matchups, he is worth considering at FantasyScore nightly.

New York Yankees SP Luis Severino will not be on an innings limit, according to general manager Brian Cashman. He has thrown 99 innings in the minors this season and threw 113 frames last year, excluding instructional league and winter ball action.
Fantasy Tip: Severino, the organization's top pitching prospect, is expected to make his major league debut against the Boston Red Sox next week. Owners in AL-only, deep mixed and dynasty fantasy leagues should consider adding him to their rosters.

New York Yankees OF Brett Gardner, C Brian McCann and 2B Stephen Drew are all out of the lineup against Chicago White Sox SP Carlos Rodon Friday, July 31. OF Chris Young is starting in right field and hitting second, C J.R. Murphy is behind the plate and hitting seventh and SS Brendan Ryan is at second base and hitting eighth.
Fantasy Tip: The only one worth considering at FantasyScore is really Young ($3,000, 6.0% of cap), who excels against lefties. He's in a prime lineup spot to capitalize and return great profit for his daily owners, too. Murphy ($1,700, 3.4% of cap) and Ryan ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) are strictly desperation sources of salary cap relief.
Fri, 31 Jul 2015 15:57:29 -0700
New York Yankees SP CC Sabathia (dehydration) will remain in the starting rotation with SP Luis Severino coming up from the minors to join the rotation, according to manager Joe Girardi. Severino is expected to make his major league debut against the Boston Red Sox early next week.
Fantasy Tip: The way Sabathia ($5,500, 11.0% of cap) has been pitching this year, he's not even very attractive to owners in deep mixed leagues. He's allowed the most home runs in the American League this year. Severino, the Yanks top pitching prospect, is an acceptable replacement, and he's even intriguing at FantasyScore for his debut against Boston next week at what's likely to be a very affordable FantasyScore price.
Fri, 31 Jul 2015 14:49:25 -0700
Fantasy Tip: The top prospect owns a a 1.91 ERA, a 0.93 WHIP and a 7.3 K/9 through 61 1/3 innings over 11 starts with Class AAA Scranton/Wilkes-Barre this season. Severino is worth grabbing in deep mixed leagues. Keep an eye out for an official announcement on when he'll debut with the Yankees, but Severino could perform nicely in pinstripes.

New York Yankees SS Jorge Mateo was available to the San Diego Padres in a package for RP Craig Kimbrel, according to a source. However, a deal for Kimbrel appears to be a no-go, and the Yankees expect the Padres to send him somewhere else now.
Fantasy Tip: Marte is the Yankees top infield prospect, and they hold him in high regard, which shows how badly they wanted to land Kimbrel. As of now, that deal and talks appear to be off. Andrew Miller may be safe from losing much of his fantasy value after all.
Fri, 31 Jul 2015 12:09:23 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Kennedy, Benoit or Kimbrel could all still be dealt in separate deals, but the Yankees have their sights set high while trying to upgrade an already stellar bullpen. Stay tuned as the trade deadline approaches.
Fri, 31 Jul 2015 11:32:19 -0700
Fantasy Tip: The Yankees designated Jones for assignment Friday, so Ackley ($2,700, 5.4% of cap) will take his roster spot. Ackley was hitting just .215 with six home runs and 19 RBI with the Seattle Mariners, so he won't be high up on anyone's fantasy wish list. However, he is more versatile than Jones and could see significant playing time at second base if Stephen Drew continues to struggle. He'll remain nothing more than a desperation sleeper play on FantasyScore, though.
