Fantasy Impact: It’s yet another injury for the Yankees to be dealing with already. Stanton suffered through injury while working in the outfield on Tuesday. It’s concerning after the slugger appeared in just 18 games last season. We should get more info on his status in the coming days but for now expect his ADP to drop a bit.

Luis Severino released in a statement that he will undergo Tommy John surgery. (Source: Ken Rosenthal on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Severino will require Tommy John surgery and will miss the entire 2020 season. “After much consideration, as well as the Yankees organization, my family, and my representatives, I have elected to adhere to the advice of the medical professions and undergo surgery to repair my injured elbow,” said Severino. He was limited to just three starts due to rotator cuff and lat injuries, and could even miss some of the 2021 season. Severino is a dynasty hold, but should not be drafted under any circumstances in re-draft leagues.

Yankees manager Aaron Boone says Miguel Andujar will play third base on Tuesday versus the Blue Jays. (Source: Lindsey Adler on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Andujar will then play the outfield later this week as the Yankees attempt to expose him to multiple positions this spring. The 24-year-old is coming off labrum surgery in his shoulder but is expected to be ready for Opening Day.

Fantasy Impact: However, the good news is he is continuing to throw at 90 feet. Judge also hit off a tee and did soft-toss today. The Yankees are wisely playing it very safe with their superstar outfielder. As of now there is no reason to think he won't be ready for Opening Day.

Gerrit Cole is scheduled to make his first Grapefruit League start on Monday versus the Pirates. (Source: Lindsey Adler on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: This will be his first action as a Yankee since signing a nine-year, $324 million contract as a free agent this winter. Cole has typically been the first starting pitcher off draft boards this season.

James Paxton (back) will be able to start throwing in about 10 days, which puts him ahead of schedule in his rehab. (Source: Marly Rivera on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Paxton had surgery to remove a cyst from his spine a couple of weeks ago. He was originally expected to be unable to throw for 5-7 weeks, but could wind up playing catch four weeks from his surgery. This is certainly good news but fantasy players shouldn't start overdrafting Paxton because of it.

Yahoo Sports reports Domingo German has been suspended 81 games by Major League Baseball. (Source: Yahoo Sports)

Fantasy Impact: German was placed on administrative leave by MLB back on September 19th for allegations of domestic violence. This suspension is being made retroactively, so he'll miss the first 63 games of 2020. No criminal charges were filed against German but this is the largest suspension MLB has given out under their domestic violence and abuse policy.

The Yankees designated Greg Bird for assignment. (Source: New York Yankees on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Bird is no longer on the team's 40-man roster. He played in just 10 games last year and continues to struggle with injuries, though he has shown big power upside in the past. He'll either accept an assignment to Triple-A or elect for free agency.

Aroldis Chapman and the Yankees have agreed on a new contract that will keep the lefty in New York through the 2022 season. (Source: Jeff Passan on Twitter )

Fantasy Impact: Chapman is essentially adding on one year and $18 million to his existing deal, which was for two years and $30 million. The All-Star closer was rumored to explore free agency if a contract extension wasn’t reached, but now that won’t be an issue. Chapman will be one of the top fantasy closers entering the 2020 campaign.

The Yankees did not exercise the $20 million 2020 option on Edwin Encarnacion. (Source: Yankees PR on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: He'll end up with a $5 million buyout instead. Encarnacion hit .244 with 34 homers and an .875 OPS this season and will enter free agency at the age of 36. The market has not been kind to one-dimensional sluggers in recent years, so we'll see how many suitors line up for EE's services.

Aaron Hicks is set to undergo Tommy John surgery on his right elbow next week. (Source: Mark Feinsand on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Hicks played in the ALCS against the Astros but was battling elbow discomfort for a while. He will be sidelined for 8-10 months, which means he will miss roughly the first half of the 2020 regular season.

Masahiro Tanaka went three innings and gave up two runs on five hits and one walk along with two strikeouts as he got hit with the loss Sunday against the Rangers.

Fantasy Impact: Tanaka came in for the second inning on Sunday as Chad Green started and pitched the first frame. The Yankees wanted the veteran starter to get some innings in before the playoffs. Tanaka finishes the season with an 11-9 record with a 4.45 ERA.

Luke Voit went 0-for-3 but scored a run as the Yankees lost to the Rangers by a 9-4 score on Saturday.

Fantasy Impact: Voit started off the season hot and won the first base job but has ended up with an injury-plagued season. Voit is batting .263 with 21 home runs and 62 RBI over 118 games.

Category: Game Recaps

Didi Gregorius went 1-for-4 with a three-RBI double in Saturday's 9-4 loss to the Rangers.

Fantasy Impact: Gregorius has had an injury-plagued season and is hitting .240 with 47 runs scored, 16 homers, 61 RBI and two stolen bases in 341 plate appearances this year. The veteran shortstop should be completely healthy going into next season and will be worth owning in deeper fantasy leagues.

Mike King gave up one unearned run in two innings against the Rangers on Friday. He allowed two hits and struck out one batter.

Fantasy Impact: King is looking at trying to win a spot on the big league roster in 2020. The 24-year-old pitcher had a 5.33 ERA, 1.30 WHIP, and 52 strikeouts in 54 innings (12 appearances) in the minors, primarily at Double-A and Triple-A and missed some time with a stress fracture.

Category: Game Recaps

Cameron Maybin went 3-for-4 with a solo home run, a walk and three more runs scored in Friday's win over the Rangers.

Fantasy Impact: Maybin has been a good pickup for the Yankees this season and has been able to provide depth in the outfield. On the season the veteran outfielder is hitting .289 with 11 home runs and nine stolen bases.

Category: Game Recaps

Mike Ford went 2-for-4 with a two-run home run, a two-run double, a walk and two more runs scored in Friday's win over the Rangers.

Fantasy Impact: Ford has hit well in a reserve role with the Yankees this season. The 27-year-old is batting .257 with 12 home runs, 25 RBI and seven doubles across 48 games on the year.

Category: Game Recaps

Austin Romine went 1-for-2 with a solo home run in Friday's win over the Rangers by a 14-7 score.

Fantasy Impact: Romine came in after the sixth inning to replace starting catcher Gary Sanchez who was on a limit. The veteran backstop is hitting .279 with eight home runs, 35 RBI and 29 runs scored over 79 games in a reserve role this year.

Category: Game Recaps

Gleyber Torres went 2-for-5 as the Yankees defeated the Rangers 14-7.

Fantasy Impact: Torres had struggled of late, going 1-for-16 over his last four games, including 0-for-9 since returning from last week's injury scare. The 22 year-old has had a magical sophomore season in the Bronx, hitting 38 home runs and driving in 90 runs.

Category: Game Recaps

DJ LeMahieu went 3-for-5 with two doubles and three RBI as the Yankees defeated the Rangers 14-7.

Fantasy Impact: LeMahieu's magical season in the Bronx continues. His three hits on the day push his batting average up to .331 and the three RBI give him 102 for the year. The veteran is sure to get some MVP consideration after setting career highs in hits, home runs, RBI, runs scored, and slugging percentage.
