Sat Sep 1810:08Giancarlo Stanton Goes Yard In Friday's Victory
New York Yankees outfielder/designated hitter Giancarlo Stanton went 1-for-4 with a solo homer in Friday's win over the Indians. Stanton clubbed one of five Yankee homers, sending a ball 407 feet into the outfield seats at 106 MPH. The veteran slugger has come back down to earth after an otherworldly August but has still posted solid numbers in September, as he owns a .853 OPS with four homers and eight RBI 57 at-bats. Stanton has been a steady, four-category producer for fantasy managers this year, as well as a great value at his ADP.

Mon Sep 1312:42Giancarlo Stanton Riding Five-Game Hitting Streak
New York Yankees designated hitter/outfielder Giancarlo Stanton is heating up again after a slump to start September. Stanton currently owns a five-game hitting streak, during which he's batting .381 with a home run, a double, three RBI, and one run scored. The slugger will take on right-hander John Gant, who has been a much better pitcher since joining the Twins at the trade deadline. Still, Gant allows a fair amount of contact and isn't a pitcher to fear at the moment. Redraft and DFS managers can fire up Stanton with confidence for Monday's matinee.

Tue Aug 2423:49Giancarlo Stanton Stays Hot In Tuesday's Win
New York Yankees designated hitter/outfielder Giancarlo Stanton belted a home run for the second straight game in Tuesday's 5-4 win over the Braves. Stanton put New York on the board with a solo shot, his second homer in as many games. The slugger is red hot, having gone 8-for-23 with four homers, two doubles, and eight RBI over his last seven games played. Stanton is as hot as any hitter in the league right now and makes for a prime DFS play hitting in the heart of a resurgent Yankee offense.

Mon Aug 2323:49Giancarlo Stanton Homers, Drives In Three Monday
New York Yankees outfielder/designated hitter Giancarlo Stanton went 2-for-3 with a home run, a double, and three RBI in Monday's 5-1 win over the Braves. Stanton supplied much of the Yankee offense against Atlanta, swatting a solo shot to put the team on the board in the first inning, then later muscling a 119.2 MPH, two-run double off of Braves starter Huascar Ynoa to break a 1-1 tie. After a quiet July, Stanton has come alive in August, totaling five homers, 18 RBI, and 14 runs scored with an OPS north of .950. Hitting in the middle of a suddenly-potent Yankee lineup, Stanton seems to be peaking at the right time for fantasy managers.

Fri Aug 2013:04Giancarlo Stanton Hits 20th Homer
New York Yankees outfielder Giancarlo Stanton hit his 20th homer of the season Thursday. He went 1-for-4 against the Minnesota Twins while batting fifth and playing right field. Stanton now has a nine-game hit streak with a single hit in each of those contests. He's been very strong this season, with an .825 OPS, 45 runs, and 59 RBI in 365 at-bats. As long as he stays healthy, he should provide excellent fantasy production in a potent Yankee lineup.

Tue Aug 1723:36Giancarlo Stanton Smashes 19th Homer
New York Yankees designated hitter Giancarlo Stanton went 1-for-3 with a solo homer during a 2-0 win over the Boston Red Sox on Tuesday. Stanton connected off of Red Sox starting pitcher Nathan Eovaldi for his 19th HR during the fourth inning. The 31-year-old is hitting .308 during August but is lacking in the power department with only two homers and 11 RBI in 52 at-bats. Stanton patrolled right field during the second game of a doubleheader, giving him eight appearances in the outfield this season. The roster crunch for the Yankees might force the 2017 National League MVP into more playing time in the outfield as opposed to being strictly a DH, potentially giving fantasy managers a little more flexibility with the slugger as he earns OF eligibility.

Fri Aug 1300:08Giancarlo Stanton Hits 18th Homer On Thursday

The 32-year-old now has 18 HR, 56 RBI, and 42 runs with a .259/.359/.452 line through 343 at-bats. Stanton is also boasting a career-best 56.1% hard-hit rate and is capable of becoming one of the most feared hitters in baseball when locked in.

Stanton will be available off the bench, and his next chance to return will be Thursday against the White Sox. Aaron Judge is batting third and is the designated hitter on Wednesday. Fantasy managers can roll with Judge as they have been all season.

Thu Aug 512:02Giancarlo Stanton Stays Hot In Wednesday's Victory
New York Yankees designated hitter/outfielder Giancarlo Stanton had another productive night at the plate in a blowout win over the Orioles Wednesday. After driving in four runs Tuesday, Stanton followed up the effort with a three-RBI night, clearing a bases-loaded situation with a double that dropped in between Orioles' fielders. The slugger endured a rough July that saw his slugging percentage plummet to .333, along with 31 strikeouts compared to 12 walks, though his fiery start to August suggests that a hot streak could be on the way. Stanton will gear up for a series with the Mariners. He owns three extra-base hits and three RBI in 12 at-bats against Seattle pitching this season.

Tue Aug 323:32Giancarlo Stanton Ends Homerless Drought At 12 Games
New York Yankees designated hitter Giancarlo Stanton went 2-for-5 with a homer, two runs, and four RBI during a 13-1 victory over the Baltimore Orioles on Tuesday. Stanton, who hasn't homered since July 20, took Orioles relief pitcher Adam Plutko deep for a three-run shot during the fourth inning. The four-time All-Star now has 17 homers, 50 RBI, 37 runs, and a .253/.352/.452 line over 359 at-bats. Stanton is as streaky as they come, and perhaps the Orioles are just what the 31-year-old needed to enter a hot streak.

Sun Aug 111:13Giancarlo Stanton On The Bench Sunday
New York Yankees designated hitter/outfielder Giancarlo Stanton is not in the lineup for Sunday's game against the Marlins. Stanton has started each of the last two games for the Yankees in left field, going 1-for-5 with a double, as the Yankees pulled him early from each contest. The club is determined to limit the outfield reps of the oft-injured slugger, though it's still a good sign to see him making starts in the field. New York will shift Joey Gallo to left field, with Brett Gardner getting the start in center. Gallo has yet to collect his first hit as a Yankee, though his home upside is as good as any player in the league, making him worth a look in DFS formats.

Fri Jul 3022:15Gallo, Rizzo excited to join Yankees for playoff drive
MIAMI (AP) — With a pair of new sluggers in place, the New York Yankees are ready to make their playoff drive. First baseman Anthony Rizzo homered in his Yankees debut Friday night and All-Star outfielder Joey Gallo also suited up with New York for the first time in the opener of a three-game series against the Miami Marlins. New York obtained Gallo and left-handed reliever Joely Rodríguez from the Texas Rangers for four minor league prospects Thursday. Rizzo’s nine-year tenure with the Chicago Cubs ended after he was sent to the Yankees for two prospects. Entering the weekend series at Miami, the Yankees were 8 1/2 games behind AL East leader Boston and 3 1/2 behind Oakland for the league's second wild card. “I’ve been hearing for some time that it was a possibility, that New York was in play for me,” Gallo said. “I grew up a huge Yankee fan. My family is from New York. It was pretty surreal they told me I was going to the Yankees. A great opportunity — it’s an amazin... [More]
Sun Jul 2502:43Sandoval loses no-hitter in 9th, Angels beat Twins 2-1
MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — Patrick Sandoval had his no-hit bid broken up with one out in the ninth inning on a soft double by rookie Brent Rooker and the Los Angeles Angels beat the Minnesota Twins 2-1 on Saturday night. Sandoval, a 24-year-old lefty who began the game with a 3-13 career record, struck out a career-high 13. There have already been seven no-hitters in the majors this season. The big league record of eight was set in 1884, the first year overhand pitching was permitted. The Twins hadn’t come close to a hit until Rooker, who fanned his first three times up, flared an opposite-field fly that fell just inside the line in right. Sandoval (3-4) smiled after the ball fell, retired the next batter and then was pulled after 108 pitches. He walked one and hit two. Closer Raisel Iglesias allowed an RBI double to Josh Donaldson before getting his 21st save in 25 chances. José Berríos (7-5) allowed two unearned runs in seven innings in perhaps his final start for Minnesota. ASTROS 4, ... [More]
