2017 RECAP

Last Season’s Fantasy Highlights

The Yankee offense struggled to score runs all season long provided few highlights. The pitching staff was another story. No star shined more brightly than Dellin Betances who dazzled with a 1.40 ERA and 135 strikeouts in 90 innings. As great as Betances was, had Masahiro Tanaka not missed substantial time with elbow trouble, he might have taken the Yankees top spot on the highlight reel. The Japanese import went 13-5 with a 2.77 ERA, 1.06 WHIP and 141/21 strikeout to walk ratio. This year brings the question of whether Betances can close and whether Tanaka can stay healthy. Here’s to hoping.

What Has Changed?

Frankly, not that much has changed other than in the pen with the move from David Robertson to Dellin Betances. Didi Gregorius arrived to play SS but that is relevant only to deep AL-only fantasy players and those who think the pitching staff will benefit from the fielding upgrade. Andrew Miller arrived and should continue his terrific run as a set-up man (100 strikeouts, 17 walks in 62 innings) but he will not likely close so his fantasy value ceiling is fairly low. Garrett Jones is in town and could hit 20 dingers in part time play in the Bronx but it will come with low counting numbers and a weak batting average.

What to Expect:

Expect some bounce back seasons on offense, including Brian McCann to be a lot better in year two now that he is used to the zoo and Chase Headley’s overall numbers to exceed 2014’s as he was far better once he escaped Petco’s unfriendly confines. 

This Year's Surprise:

Alex Rodriguez. No we're not drunk. ARod has pride. He will show up motivated and in shape, work hard and thrive at DH. After returning from hip surgery in 2013, he hit a dinger every 22 at-bats and posted an OBP of almost .350. He will provide far more production than his price tag.
