Description: A left foot contusion knocked Travis Hafner out of New York's game versus Kansas City Wednesday, but his X-rays came back negative, according to Mark Feinsand of the New York Daily News.
Insight: Hafner is hitting .217 with 12 homers this season, so he's no longer a fantasy option after a hot start. Pronk will likely be out of the lineup Thursday in a 1:05 pm ET start.

Description: Yankees DH Travis Hafner has gone just 4-for-27 (.148) against Angels starter Jered Weaver, who will start Sunday.
Insight: To make matters worse, Hafner is 0-for-23 over his last six games and his average is down to .219 for the year. Get him out of the lineup immediately.
 
6/11/2013 11:52:00 AM
Description: Yankees DH Travis Hafner should be sitting firmly on the bench when the Yankees face Bartolo Colon as he's a career .056 hitter (1-for-18) against the A's right-hander.
Insight: Hafner homered a couple of time in Cleveland against his old teammates, but was just 2-for-12 in the three-game set with Seattle. Avoid this matchup.
 
6/5/2013 7:17:00 PM
Description: Yankees DH Travis Hafner has homered in his last two games.
Insight: Hafner sat out Tuesday with left-hander Scott Kazmir on the hill, but he returned to the lineup Wednesday and went deep for the 10th time this season.
 
6/4/2013 5:07:00 PM
Description: Yankees DH Travis Hafner is sitting out Tuesday against the Indians.
Insight: Indians lefty Scott Kazmir is on the mound. Hafner has just 27 at-bats against left-handers this season.

Description: Yankees DH Travis Hafner is a career .455 hitter with four homers and a 1.379 OPS versus Baltimore right-hander Freddy Garcia.
Insight: Hafner is still a threat against right-handers, batting .278 this season, with five of his seven homers and a .906 OPS. He should definitely be in fantasy lineups in this favorable matchup, assuming Joe Girardi puts him in the Yankees lineup on Monday.
 
5/18/2013 8:36:00 PM
Description: Yankees DH Travis Hafner homered off Blue Jays reliever Darren Oliver in the eighth inning Saturday. He has been dealing with a shoulder injury over the past week.
Insight: Hafner is just 4-for-21 against lefties this season, but two of the hits are home runs. With Curtis Granderson back in action, the Yankees have just two lineup spots for Vernon Wells, Ichiro Suzuki and Travis Hafner to fill, so manager Joe Girardi will have to mix and match.

Description: Yankees DH Travis Hafner is a career .357 hitter (5-for-14) with five extra base hits and a 1.438 OPS against Blue Jays starter Brandon Morrow.
Insight: Hafner hasn't played since Monday due to a shoulder peoblem, but should be ready for this favorable matchup. He hasn't been hitting well either, batting .158 over the past two weeks, but this is a nice opportunity. Update - Hafner is in Saturday's starting lineup.

Description: Yankees DH Travis Hafner is dealing with right shoulder tendinitis and is questionable for Friday's game against Toronto.
Insight: Hafner has been scuffling in May, hitting .133 in his last 10 games, and perhaps the shoulder is to blame. With Curtis Granderson back from the disabled list, the Yankees have four outfielders and can use one of them at DH so Hafner can rest his sore shoulder.

Description: Yankees DH Travis Hafner is dealing with right shoulder tendinitis but he hopes to be back in the lineup Thursday, according to Andy McCullough of the Newark Star-Ledger.
Insight: Hafner has been scuffling in May, hitting .133 in his last 10 games, and perhaps the shoulder is to blame. Curtis Granderson returned to action Tuesday, so New York's lineup is a little more crowded.

Insight: Hafner has been scuffling in May, hitting .133 in his last 10 games, so perhaps this has something to do with it. With Curtis Granderson returning Tuesday, the Yankees lineup just got a little more crowded.

5/4/2013 10:20:00 AM
Description: Yankees DH Travis Hafner is hitless in 15 at-bats against Oakland starter Bartolo Colon with four strikeouts.
Insight: Hafner had a fantastic month of April, just when the Yankees needed him the most, batting .318 with six homers, 17 RBI and a 1.014 OPS. He's hitless in eight May at-bats and this unfavorable matchup isn't likely to help those numbers.

Insight: The oft-injured Hafner has been healthy and productive so far this season, batting .303 with a team-leading three home runs and seven RBI and this matchup is a good opportunity to get him into your starting lineup.
 
Hot4/8/2013 9:30:00 PM
Description: New York DH Travis Hafner cracked his second homer of the year Monday in his return to Cleveland.
Insight: Hafner (2-for-3, 4 RBI) has been a pleasant surprise for the injury-depleted Yankees. He's recorded a hit in all seven games this season and leads the team with a .391 average in 23 at bats. Maybe you can teach an old dog new tricks.
