Description: Yankees OF/1B Vernon Wells has been designated for assignment.
Insight: Wells helped the Yankees early on by batting .301 with 10 homers and 23 RBI over his first 38 games but he faded quickly after that. He's a career .270 hitter with a .778 OPS, but he hasn't hit at that level for a few years and his fantasy value doesn't figure to improve anytime soon.
 
8/31/2013 12:22:00 PM
Description: Yankees OF/1B Vernon Wells is a career .500 hitter (7-for-14) with a home run and a 1.683 OPS versus Orioles starter Scott Feldman.
Insight: Wells hasn't played since Tuesday and has only seen 17 plate appearances over the past two weeks, but has a favorable history against Feldman and if manager Joe Girardi puts him in the starting lineup, you should too. Update: Wells is not in the starting lineup.
 
8/20/2013 11:30:00 AM
Description: Yankees OF/1B Vernon Wells is a career .453 hitter (24-for-53) with three home runs versus Blue Jays lefty mark Buehrle, who will pitch the second game of the doubleheader.
Insight: Wells is batting .245 this season with 11 HR and 42 RBI, but most of the damage was done in April. August has started out nicely, he's batting .360 in nine games, and should be started in this favorable matchup.
 
8/13/2013 11:11:00 PM
Description: Yankees left fielder Vernon Wells' home run Tuesday against the Angels was his first since May 15.
Insight: In 64 consecutive homerless games since his last longball, Wells batted .199 with nine extra-base hits, 16 RBI, 10 walks, 40 strikeouts and a .476 OPS.
 
8/5/2013 6:55:00 PM
Description: Vernon Wells will get the start at first base Monday against the White Sox.
Insight: In 15 years in the league, Wells has never played a game at first base. This should be interesting.
 
7/28/2013 12:02:00 PM
Description: We wouldn't recommend starting Vernon Wells Sunday versus Tampa Bay. He's only had one hit in 15 at bats against lefty Matt Moore.
Insight: Wells is actually hitting .305 this month but that's not likely to increase Sunday with Moore throwing for the Rays. Wells is getting the start at DH and will hit fifth behind Alfonso Soriano.
 
7/10/2013 10:53:00 AM
Description: Yankees outfielder Vernon Wells is just 1-for-11 (.091) against Royals right-hander Wade Davis.
Insight: After a solid April, Wells has struggled to produce and hasn't hit a home run since May. Avoid this matchup.
 
7/6/2013 12:01:00 PM
Description: Yankees outfielder Vernon Wells is just 1-for-12 (.083) against Baltimore starter Chris Tillman.
Insight: Although Wells came through with a game-winner on Friday night and has three consecutive multi-hit games, his poor history against Tillman is the reason he should not be in your fantasy lineup on Saturday. Latest update - Wells is not in the Yankees starting lineup on Saturday.
 
7/6/2013 9:33:00 AM
Description: Yankees outfielder Vernon Wells is just 1-for-12 (.083) against Baltimore starter Chris Tillman.
Insight: Although Wells came through with a game-winner on Friday night and has three consecutive multi-hit games, his poor history against Tillman is the reason he should not be in your fantasy lineup on Saturday.
 
6/22/2013 6:54:00 PM
Description: Vernon Wells only had one at bat Saturday against Tampa Bay. Fortunately for the Yankees, he made it count by whacking a three-run double.
Insight: The two-bagger ended up being the difference in the game as New York held on for the 7-5 victory. Wells has had big-time struggles this month (.117 in June) but on Saturday he proved he can still deliver in big spots.
 
Cold6/20/2013 10:28:00 AM
Description: Yankees outfielder Vernon Wells is 1-for-12 (.083) against Tampa Bay starter Matt Moore.
Insight: The party is over for Wells and his fantasy owners. He was hitting .300 with an .911 OPS in April, but has done almost nothing since then. He batted .221 in May and .107 in June. Slumping and facing a bad matchup is not a recipe for fantasy production. Avoid this matchup.
 
Cold6/8/2013 10:30:00 AM
Description: Yankees outfielder Vernon Wells is 3-for-21 (.143) against Seattle left-hander Joe Saunders.
Insight: Wells was hitting .300 with an .911 OPS in April, but has done almost nothing since then. Slumping and facing a bad matchup is not a recipe for fantasy production. Avoid this matchup.
 
Cold6/5/2013 7:18:00 PM
Description: Yankees outfielder Vernon Wells is 7-for-65 (.108) with one RBI over his last 18 games.
Insight: Wells was hitting .301 with an .895 OPS when this cold streak started. He's down to .240 and .705 after going 0-for-4 Wednesday.
 
6/4/2013 9:39:00 AM
Description: Yankees outfielder Vernon Wells is a career .316 hitter (12-for-38) with three home runs versus Cleveland lefty Scott Kazmir.
Insight: Wells has been scuffling lately, going just 1-for-10 in the series with Boston and sat out the first game of the Cleveland series. The veteran outfielder has been a major surprise this year, hitting .263 with 10 homers, 24 RBI, 25 runs and four steals.
 
6/3/2013 4:18:00 PM
Description: Yankees outfielder Vernon Wells is a career .105 hitter (2-for-19) versus Cleveland right-hander Justin Masterson.
Insight: Wells has been scuffling lately, going just 1-for-10 in the series with Boston. The veteran outfielder has been a major surprise this year, hitting .263 with 10 homers, 24 RBI, 25 runs and four steals, but this is an unfavorable matchup. Latest update - Wells is not in the starting lineup.
 
6/3/2013 10:33:00 AM
Description: Yankees outfielder Vernon Wells is a career .105 hitter (2-for-19) versus Cleveland right-hander Justin Masterson.
Insight: Wells has been scuffling lately, going just 1-for-10 in the series with Boston. The veteran outfielder has been a major surprise this year, hitting .263 with 10 homers, 24 RBI, 25 runs and four steals, but this is an unfavorable matchup.
 
5/29/2013 3:53:00 PM
Description: Yankees outfielder Vernon Wells is not in Wednesday's starting lineup. The Yankees will go with Ichio Suzuki in left, Brett gardner in center amd Brennan Boesch in right field.
Insight: Wells has been scuffling lately, batting just .091 over his last 22 at-bats. The veteran outfielder has been a major surprise this year, hitting .263 with 10 homers, 24 RBI, 24 runs and four steals.
 
5/19/2013 9:19:00 AM
Description: Yankees outfielder Vernon Wells is 1-for-11 with four strikeouts over his last three games, but he has a favorable matchup Sunday against Blue Jays knuckleballer R.A. Dickey.
Insight: Wells is a .438 hitter (.438) with two doubles against Dickey. The veteran outfielder has been a major surprise this year, hitting .286 with 10 homers, 23 RBI, 22 runs and four steals.
 
Hot5/17/2013 9:46:00 AM
Description: Yankees outfielder Vernon Wells is a .480 hitter (24-for-50) with three homers and a 1.289 OPS against Blue Jays starter Mark Buehrle.
Insight: Wells (.295, 10 HR, 23 RBI) is one of the biggest reasons the Yankees are playing over .500 baseball despite their numberous injuries. He'll likely continue to start even with the return of Curtis Granderson as long as he's hitting at this level. He's a must start on Friday in this favorable matchup.
 
5/15/2013 10:30:00 PM
Description: Yankees outfielder Vernon Wells went yard for the 10th time this season Wednesday against the Mariners.
Insight: With Curtis Granderson back in action, it's unclear if Wells will have an everyday spot in the lineup since the Yankees also need to get Ichiro at-bats in right field and Travis Hafner at-bats at DH, but Wells certainly has earned it over the other two.
