Description: New York infielder Brendan Ryan won't be ready in time for Opening Day. SOURCE: Bryan Hoch, MLB.com
Insight: An MRI showed something pushing on a nerve in his back. Ryan is known more for his glove than his bat. In 2,368 big league at bats, he's hit just .237 with 19 HR and 189 RBI.
 
11/18/2013 1:40:00 PM
Description: Shortstop Brendan Ryan has reportedly reached a two-year, $5 million agreement with the New York Yankees.
Insight: Ryan is one of the league's best fielding shortstops, but a well below average hitter. He has no fantasy value and would simply be insurance behind Derek Jeter.
 
4/24/2013 12:59:00 PM
Description: Seattle shortstop Brendan Ryan has lost his starting job to Robert Andino.
Insight: Ryan is one of the league's best fielding shortstops, but he's batting .143 this season and hit just .194 last year. Andino is no Troy Tulowitzki, but he is a career .233 hitter.

Description: Brendan Ryan is not in the starting lineup for Thursday's day game against Washington. SOURCE: Rotowire
Insight: Ryan has been struggling of late, so this day off will definitely do him some good. Still, his numbers aren't good enough to consider him anything more than a backup in AL-only formats.
 
3/14/2011 6:50:00 AM
Description: Brendan Ryan is hitting just .136 in spring training. Meanwhile, Dustin Ackley's average has risen to .316.
Insight: We still think Ryan will open the season at 2B and keep the spot warm for Ackley for two months. At that point the youngster will take over - probably for many years.
 
2/11/2011 7:54:00 PM
Description: Persistent lates for practices and other training sessions contributed to Brendan Ryan leaving St. Louis. SOURCE: INSIDESTL.COM
Insight: Ryan will be on a short leash in Seattle with Dustin Ackley breathing down his neck. We expect Ackley to take the 2B job in June or July.
 
12/12/2010 7:50:00 PM
Description: Brendan Ryan has been traded to Seattle for minor league pitcher Maikel Cleto. SOURCE: SEATTLE TIMES
Insight: The Mariners are expected to place Ryan at 2B where he will play in most games. He was one of baseball's worst hitters last year but he blamed the problems on injuries. If he can revert to his 2009 form he can help AL-Only owners but not those in mixed leagues.
 
12/12/2010 8:17:00 AM
Description: Brendan Ryan has drawn some interest from the Twins. SOURCE: KEN ROSENTHAL
Insight: They would be looking at him as a backup or utility player and that's what we expect his role will be wherever he signs. He won't be useful in mixed leagues.
 
8/2/2010 12:54:00 PM
Description: Ryan went 3-for-3 with a double and three runs scored against Pittsburgh on Sunday.
Insight: Ryan is still hitting just .218 this season, and is not a fantasy option. (SportsBuff.com)
 
5/27/2010 11:49:00 PM
Description: Ryan went 4-for-4 with a home run and a stolen base
Insight: Ryan is still not a strong fantasy option, as he is splitting time with Felipe Lopez and is only hitting .203 on the season. (SportsBuff.com)
 
5/17/2010 10:55:00 AM
Description: The St. Louis Post Dispatch reports Cardinals' manager Tony LaRussa hinted that Ryan will serve as a utility player when Felipe Lopez (elbow) returns to action.
Insight: Ryan opened the season as the Cardinals' starting shortstop, but has struggled at the plate and in the field so far. (SportsBuff.com)
 
5/13/2010 3:28:00 PM
Description: The St. Louis Post Dispatch reports Ryan is not in the starting lineup on Thursday againt Houston.
Insight: Ryan is in a 1-for-23 slump at the plate and has committed five errors over the past three games, so a day off can't hurt him. (SportsBuff.com)
 
3/26/2010 4:53:00 PM
Description: Ryan (wrist) hit a home run off of Mets' starter John Maine on Thursday.

3/19/2010 8:39:00 PM
Description: Updating a previous item, the St. Louis Post Dispatch reports Ryan (wrist) played shortstop for five innings and hit leadoff in a minor league game on Friday

3/19/2010 1:21:00 PM
Description: The St. Louis Post Dispatch reports the Cardinals are hoping Ryan (wrist) can make his spring debut on Monday against the Astros.
Insight: Ryan was originally scheduled to make his spring debut on Saturday, but will be given a few extra days. He has been taking batting practice, and still hopes to be ready for the start of the season. (SportsBuff.com)
 
3/12/2010 12:18:00 PM
Description: The St. Louis Post Dispatch reports Ryan (wrist) will make his Grapefruit League debut on March 20.
Insight: Ryan is expected to take batting practice on Friday. With Julio Lugo, Tyler Greene and Felipe Lopez around, he is not guaranteed to get a lot of playing time even when he is 100% healthy. (SportsBuff.com)
 
3/11/2010 2:51:00 PM
Description: The St. Louis Post Dispatch reports Ryan (wrist) was scratched from Thursday's game due to an ingrown toenail.
Insight: Ryan had been set to appear as a pinch runner. He may be able to get some game action by this weekend. (SportsBuff.com)
 
3/11/2010 10:28:00 AM
Description: The St. Louis Post Dispatch reports Ryan (wrist) had been told to be available for Thursday's game against Florida.
Insight: Ryan apparently will not hit, but manager Tony LaRussa suggested he could be used as a pinch runner or defensive replacement. (SportsBuff.com)
 
3/9/2010 2:26:00 PM
Description: According to the St. Louis Post Dispatch, Ryan (wrist) took soft toss batting practice on Monday and hopes to take real batting practice by the end of the week.

3/5/2010 3:55:00 PM
Description: According to Cardinals.com, Ryan (wrist) plans to take soft-toss on Monday.
Insight: The team is still not expecting Ryan to be ready for Opening Day, but if he can do this on Monday that would be significant progress in his recovery from February wrist surgery. (SportsBuff.com)
