News: Ryan (calf), who is now on a rehab assignment at Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre, will be called up when he plays back-to-back games, MLB.com's Bryan Hoch reports.
Impact: With Didi Gregorius slashing .215/.276/.289, the Yankees could certainly use some new blood in the mix at shortstop. Ryan is a defense-first option, but Gregorius is average defensively so Ryan could still represent an overall upgrade. Ryan is in the lineup for Scranton/Wilkes-Barre on Tuesday, so keep tabs on his usage in the coming days to see if a call-up is on tap.
News: Flores is out of the lineup Tuesday, the YES Network's Meredith Marakovits reports.
Impact: He got the start in three straight games for the Yankees with Brett Gardner manning center field with Jacoby Ellsbury on the DL. However, with a lefty on the mound for the Mariners on Tuesday, Chris Young gets the start in left field for the Yankees.
News: Gregorius is out of the lineup Tuesday, the YES Network's Meredith Marakovits reports.
Impact: He hasn't done much of anything at the plate all season and has been a well-below average fantasy option, even at a weak position like shortstop. Stephen Drew will slide over to play shortstop Tuesday and Brendan Ryan will rejoin the big league club in short order so Gregorius could soon see his playing time take a significant dip.
News: McCann is out of the lineup Tuesday, the YES Network's Meredith Marakovits reports.
Impact: It is just a standard day off for McCann, and a logical one with lefty Mike Montgomery on the mound for the Mariners. McCann had a stretch last week where he homered in four straight games, so he has bought himself at least a couple weeks of goodwill in the fantasy community. John Ryan Murphy gets the start at catcher Tuesday.
News: Nova (elbow) pitched at extended spring training Tuesday, and he'll likely start a rehab assignment with High-A Tampa next week, the New York Post's Joel Sherman reports.
Impact: Nova tossed three innings outdoors, before rain forced him inside for his final two innings of work. Yankees manager Joe Girardi previously suggested that Nova's rehab assignment may only last two or three outings, making it possible the right-hander will join the big-league squad in mid-to-late June.
News: Pineda struck out nine and walked two while holding the Mariners to two runs on seven hits over six innings Monday night in a winning effort.
Impact: With the victory, Pineda improved to 7-2 for the season. He's carrying a 3.33 ERA with room to get better (2.39 FIP) thanks to a tidy 2.4% walk rate (the same elite mark he held in 2014). Pineda will take the ball against the Angels at home Sunday in his next scheduled start.
News: Teixeira hit his 15th home run on Monday against the Mariners.
Impact: Teixeira looks rejuvenated in some respects at the plate, as his .241 average is his highest since 2012. While he likely won't get to the 40 home run mark as he's on pace to do, his performance has been a boon for the owners who took a bit of a risk by drafting him.
