Instant Fantasy Baseball Reaction: Yankees' signing of Chris Carter a lose-lose-lose-lose

Chris Carter has more Fantasy value with a team than without. But his signing with the Yankees, as Scott White notes, may not be the best thing for Greg Bird, Matt Holliday, Aaron Judge or Carter himself.

Chris Carter

Brian Cashman, making the Yankees not great again. I just don’t get this one? When there are more reasons for something not making sense than there are for it making sense, why do it? You’ve got Aaron Judge, Tyler Austin, Greg Bird, Matt Holliday and Aaron Hicks all fighting for time at RF, 1B and […]

Yankees sign Chris Carter to 1-year, $3 million deal

Yankees sign Chris Carter to 1-year, $3 million deal

The slugger will likely see time against lefties for the Yankees, who have Greg Bird and Matt Holliday already on the roster. The Yankees have agreed to a one-year, $3 million deal with free-agent first baseman Chris Carter, as first reported by Bob Nightengale of USA Today. The deal includes $500k in bonuses based on plate appearances. The Yanks were first linked to Carter earlier Tuesday, despite the Rays, Rangers and Japanese clubs showing more consistent interest throughout the free-agent process. Carter may struggle to find at-bats with the Yankees, who have Greg Bird, Tyler Austin and...
The five worst one-year deals of Brian Cashman’s career

The five worst one-year deals of Brian Cashman’s career

Some of these deals were ugly One of the only free agent signings the Yankees made this offseason was a one-year deal. Brian Cashman signed outfielder Matt Holliday to a $13 million contract as he enters his age-37. We don’t know how that deal will end up, but Cashman has certainly made some bad signings in his career. Instead of looking at every multi-year contract—because that’s an article for another time—I focused on one-year contracts and came up with his five worst. Kevin Youkilis (2013) The 2013 season was a weird year for a lot of different reasons, but it was primarily...

Four Yankees prospects ready to steal spring training spotlight

Four Yankees prospects ready to steal spring training spotlight

The new guys always get the most attention in Yankees camp. It just so happens this year’s most compelling new guys, with apologies to Matt Holliday, are the rookies. The Yankees announced Tuesday highly touted prospects Chance Adams, Clint Frazier, Justus Sheffield and Gleyber Torres will be among the non-roster invitees reporting to George M....
What should we make of Matt Holliday’s past two seasons?

What should we make of Matt Holliday’s past two seasons?

Normally a staple of consistency, Matt Holliday has been all over the place the last two years. What does this tell us about his potential 2017 production? Players fortunate enough to have a long major league career often develop reputations, and that’s no different for 13-year veteran Matt Holiday. A player worth at least 3.5 fWAR for an outstanding nine straight seasons, Holliday is well-known around the league as a reliable and excellent batter, one always good for at least 20 home runs and a batting average around .290. Naturally, after making a name for himself as this type of...

Winter Report Card: Adding Chapman, Holliday doesn't alter Yankees' outlook

Are Aroldis Chapman and Matt Holliday enough to get the New York Yankees back into World Series contention?
Luis Severino's release point could explain recent ineffectiveness

Luis Severino's release point could explain recent ineffectiveness

The Yankees want their young right-hander to cut mass. They might be onto something. This offseason has been a peculiar one for Yankees fans. Instead of confidently gearing up for a World Series run, the organization is looking towards the future. While the club did take measures to field a competitive team, namely the Matt Holliday and Aroldis Chapman signings, the focus has been on the youth movement. For the most part, fans have responded positively. There have been many discussions and debates about favorite top prospects. In the midst of this excitement, however, some young players...
