Phillies | Michael Young staying put

Philadelphia Phillies 3B Michael Young was not traded at the July 31 non-wavier trade deadline. Manager Charlie Manuel said he will use Young at first base and third base moving forward, with 3B Cody Asche possibly seeing time in the outfield.

Fantasy Tip: With Ryan Howard on the DL, Young could split time at first base with Darin Ruf, allowing Asche to start at third base. As mentioned, Asche can also play the outfield while Domonic Brown is on the DL. Basically, Manuel will try to find playing time for Asche, one of the team's top prospects, for the remainder of the season. Add him in all NL-only leagues, and depending on how much he plays, he could become relevant in deep mixed leagues.
