2017 FANTASY BASEBALL BRIEF: DELLIN BETANCES GOES NUCLEAR ON YANKEES

The arbitration hearing between Dellin Betances and the New York Yankees concluded with the team beating the player early Saturday morning but things were far from over between the two sides.  In what can be described as a "spiking the football" move, Yankees CEO Lonn Trost went public with his disgust for the hearing and argued that Betances was being done a disservice by his agent.  Betances then quickly fired back with pointed criticism of the team and Trost and hinted that maybe he won't be as readily available to the team in 2017 when it comes to pitching multiple innings or coming in with men on base.  While Betances' fantasy baseball value is limited due to the fact he doesn't save with a healthy Aroldis Chapman in town, his incredibly low hit rate and 15.00-plus K/9 rates make him a setup man to use in innings-capped leagues. There looks to be added drama to the situation however by the looks and sounds of it.
