Brian McCann went 2-for-5 with a double, three RBI, and a run scored on Wednesday night against the Orioles.

McCann did most of the damage on Wednesday night, as he drove in three of the Yankees seven runs, finally getting them out of their horrid slump and six game losing streak. Throughout this Yankees ice cold spell, McCann was one of the few Bombers hitting, so it should come as no surprise the damage that he did on Wednesday night. Expect him to keep up the good work going forward, as he is a veteran professional hitter who appears to be locked in at the moment.

Jacoby Ellsbury went 3-for-3 with a double, two stolen bases, two walks, and a run scored on Wednesday night against the Orioles.

The much maligned center fielder has been hot of late, as he not only went 3-for-3 on Wednesday night, but he has now hit safely in six of his past 10 at-bats. So far in his Yankees career, Ellsbury has done nothing but disappoint, so fantasy owners shouldn’t get used to this hot streak… Advise all: play him out until he cools off.

C.C. Sabathia went seven innings, allowed zero runs on six hits and two walks, while he struck out six in a win over the Orioles on Wednesday night.

The hefty lefty seriously hasn’t been this good since Netflix put Blockbuster out of business, as he turned back the clock and tossed seven shutout innings on Wednesday night against the Orioles. He only allowed six hits and two walks, while he struck out six batters in the process, giving DFS owners the value start that they were looking for when they enlisted his services on Wednesday night. When you look at his early season stat line, length has really been C.C’s issue, as he has yet to allow over three runs in any given start. Joe Girardi has done a fine job managing the veteran’s pitches, keeping him under 100 in each of his first five starts, so now that he is beginning to go deeper into games, the pitch count is proving true. If he can remain healthy going forward, Sabathia appears to be on the right track for a bounce back year in 2016.

Tyler Wilson went six innings, allowed two earned runs on four hits and three walks, while he struck out four in a loss to the Yankees on Wednesday night.

Although he picked up the loss, Wilson pitched relatively well on Wednesday night, as he only allowed two earned runs across six innings. The solid start lowered his ERA to 3.04 on the season, while the loss evened up his record to 1-1. Considering he joined the rotation midway through the early part of this season, it is safe to say that Wilson is doing a fine job as a starter, as he appears to be fully stretched out now. Fantasy owners can now consider him for their lineups going forward.

Josh Edgin's rehab assignment expires on Sunday.

When Edgin comes up with the team, he will serve as a middle reliever. Unless he somehow works his way to the backend of the bullpen, which he won't, he isn't useful in fantasy formats.

Mike Wright is still scheduled to start Saturday despite throwing an inning Wednesday.

Consider his brief appearance on Wednesday as a tune-up for Saturday's start. He only threw an inning, so he will be good to go on Saturday. He will face the Oakland Athletics in his start on Saturday.

Brett Gardner is "pretty sore" after being hit by a pitch on his right elbow. X-rays were negative.

Can you blame the guy, he got rocked in the elbow. The X-rays are negative, which is reassuring. At the very least, consider him day-to-day until more information on his status is available.

Blaine Gabbert is "taking control" as the starting quarterback during the offseason program.

It's going to be another long season for the San Francisco 49ers, especially if Blaine Gabbert is at the helm. Gabbert is nothing more than a low-end QB2 in fantasy football this season. In eight games last year, he threw for 2,031 yards with 10 touchdowns and seven interceptions.
