Phillies | Ryan Howard sitting out

Sat, 27 Jun 2015 08:59:29 -0700

Philadelphia Phillies 1B Ryan Howard is not in the starting lineup against Washington Nationals SP Gio Gonzalez Saturday, June 27. 3B Maikel Franco will start at first base and is batting third, while SS Andres Blanco will start at third base and is batting sixth.

Fantasy Tip: Howard ($3,900, 7.8% of cap) likely is sitting out because the team is facing a left-handed pitcher. Franco ($4,900, 9.8% of cap) has recorded 13 hits and 11 RBI in his last seven games and should be a starting option on FantasyScore. Blanco ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) has six RBI in his last three games and is hitting .292 in limited playing time in June, but owners may be able to find better options.

Phillies | Andres Blanco getting a chance

Wed, 24 Jun 2015 07:51:38 -0700

Philadelphia Phillies SS Andres Blanco is hitting sixth Wednesday, June 24, and playing third base against New York Yankees SP Ivan Nova.

Fantasy Tip: Blanco ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) is 3-for-5 with a homer and six RBI the last two games. It's a very small sample size, but if you're into rolling the dice, here's a chance on FantasyScore.

Phillies | Jeff Francoeur, Andres Blanco starting

Tue, 23 Jun 2015 12:47:13 -0700

Philadelphia Phillies OF Jeff Francoeur and SS Andres Blanco are starting against New York Yankees SP CC Sabathia Tuesday, June 23. Francoeur is playing left field and hitting fifth, while Blanco is starting at third base and hitting seventh. 3B Maikel Franco moves over to first base, while 1B Ryan Howard serves as the designated hitter. OF Cody Asche will start on the bench.

Fantasy Tip: Francoeur ($2,100, 4.2% of cap) and Blanco ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) are desperation sleeper plays on FantasyScore. Francoeur is 4-for-20 (.200) in his career against Sabathia. Franco ($4,900, 9.8% of cap), who hit two home runs last night, continues to be an attractive daily commodity at his price, especially while facing a lefty that has struggled against righty sticks this year.

Phillies | Chase Utley out vs. lefty

Fri, 12 Jun 2015 13:26:32 -0700

Philadelphia Phillies 2B Chase Utley is not in the starting lineup against Pittsburgh Pirates left-handed SP Jeff Locke Friday, June 12. SS Andres Blanco is starting at the keystone and hitting second.

Fantasy Tip: Blanco ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) is strictly a source of salary cap relief as a deep sleeper pick.

Phillies | Chase Utley out Sunday

Sun, 17 May 2015 08:41:38 -0700

Philadelphia Phillies 2B Chase Utley is not in the starting lineup Sunday, May 17, against the Arizona Diamondbacks. 2B Andres Blanco will start at second base and hit second in the order.

Fantasy Tip: Blanco ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) is a switch-hitter, but he is batting just .250 against RHPs this season, compared to .364 against lefties. Even with a great spot in the lineup, Blanco doesn't warrant much consideration.

Phillies | Cody Asche sitting out Saturday

Sat, 09 May 2015 12:42:26 -0700

Philadelphia Phillies 3B Cody Asche is not in the starting lineup against the New York Mets Saturday, May 9. INF Andres Blanco will fill in at the hot corner.

Fantasy Tip: Asche ($2,000, 4.0% of cap) is out of the lineup due to the team facing a left-handed starter (Jon Niese). Blanco ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) has little fantasy value and better options can be found in FantasyScore for a comparable price.

Phillies | Freddy Galvis resting

Thu, 23 Apr 2015 09:17:39 -0700

Philadelphia Phillies SS Freddy Galvis is not in the starting lineup Thursday, April 23. SS Andres Blanco is starting at the 6 and hitting eighth in the batting order against Miami Marlins SP David Phelps.

Fantasy Tip: Blanco ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) is a light-hitting utility infielder that won't excite many folks at FantasyScore today, even while facing the underwhelming Phelps.

Fantasy Tip: Blanco ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) should be avoided for all daily lineups against Gonzalez Friday night.
