Phillies | Freddy Galvis jumps up lineup vs. Mets

Mon, 24 Aug 2015 13:01:57 -0700

Philadelphia Phillies SS Freddy Galvis is batting second against New York Mets SP Jacob deGrom Monday, Aug. 24. SS Andres Blanco is starting at third base and batting fifth Monday.

Fantasy Tip: It isn't a significant value shift for Blanco ($1,900, 3.8% of cap) who has been batting second of late, as he'll just trade fewer opportunities to score runs for more chances to drive them in. Glavis ($3,800, 7.6% of cap) grabs a nice value boost, though, as he was frequenting the bottom third of the order of late. Still, with deGrom ($9,700, 18.4% of cap) taking the hill for New York, both Phillies are risky FantasyScore players Monday.

Phillies | Andres Blanco playing well

Sat, 22 Aug 2015 19:32:23 -0700

Philadelphia Phillies 2B Andres Blanco went 2-for-4 with two doubles, an RBI and a walk in a 4-2 win over the Miami Marlins Saturday, Aug. 22.

Fantasy Tip: Blanco ($1,900, 3.8% of cap) has hit safely in six of his last seven games, and he has three home runs and seven runs scored during the stretch. His average up to .302, and he is worth a look as a source of cap relief at FantasyScore.

Phillies | Andres Blanco playing third base

Wed, 19 Aug 2015 14:11:22 -0700

Philadelphia Phillies SS Andres Blanco is starting at third base and batting second against Toronto Blue Jays SP Mark Buehrle Wednesday, Aug. 19.

Fantasy Tip: Blanco ($1,900, 3.8% of cap) projects to receive everyday at-bats with 3B Maikel Franco (wrist) out and 2B Chase Utley ($4,500, 9.0% of cap) on his way to the Los Angeles Dodgers. Cesar Hernandez ($3,800, 7.6% of cap) will slide back to the keystone with Blanco starting at third. Blanco has a .284/.355/.514 slash line over 123 plate appearances this season. But don't let those numbers fool you, as the 31-year-old journeyman has a career .676 OPS over eight seasons. Blanco is is nothing more than an NL-only and cavernous mixed league option. At FantasyScore, he currently is a nice bargain, though.

Phillies | Maikel Franco still not available

Sun, 16 Aug 2015 10:51:34 -0700

Philadelphia Phillies 3B Maikel Franco (wrist) is not in the starting lineup against Milwaukee Brewers SP Taylor Jungmann Sunday, Aug. 16. SS Andres Blanco will start at third base and is batting fifth in the lineup.

Fantasy Tip: Franco ($5,000, 10.0% of cap) may be able to return soon, so owners should continue to monitor his situation. Blanco ($1,900, 3.8% of cap) is hitting .313 in limited playing time this month but may not be the best option for owners on FantasyScore.

Phillies | Maikel Franco not playing

Wed, 12 Aug 2015 09:58:12 -0700

Philadelphia Phillies 3B Maikel Franco (wrist) is not in the starting lineup Wednesday, Aug. 12. SS Andres Blanco is starting at the hot corner and hitting second against Arizona Diamondbacks SP Chase Anderson.

Fantasy Tip: Franco apparently dodged a bullet after being hit on the wrist by a pitch last night, but he could sit out a few more games to let it heal completely. Blanco ($1,900, 3.8% of cap) is a light-hitting infielder for the Phils that can largely be ignored on FantasyScore.

Phillies | Cesar Hernandez sitting vs. Toronto

Wed, 29 Jul 2015 14:41:23 -0700

Philadelphia Phillies 2B Cesar Hernandez is not in the starting lineup Wednesday, July 29. SS Andres Blanco is starting at second base and batting ninth against Toronto Blue Jays SP R.A. Dickey Wednesday.

Fantasy Tip: Make sure to avoid Hernandez ($3,800, 7.6% of cap) in all fantasy formats Wednesday. He is cooling off of late with a .172/.238/.241 slash line over his past 15 games. Blanco ($1,900, 3.8% of cap) is nothing more than a desperation source of cap relief for FantasyScore players, and you should likely aim higher.

Phillies | Freddy Galvis not in the lineup

Tue, 28 Jul 2015 14:03:38 -0700

Philadelphia Phillies SS Freddy Galvis is not in the starting lineup against Toronto Blue Jays SP Felix Doubront Tuesday, July 28. SS Andres Blanco will start at shortstop and is batting eighth in the lineup.

Fantasy Tip: Galvis ($3,300, 6.6% of cap) likely is receiving a day off and should return in the near future. Blanco ($1,900, 3.8% of cap) is hitting .343 against left-handed pitchers this season, but owners should still be able to find a better option on FantasyScore.

Phillies | Andres Blanco starting at 3B

Tue, 21 Jul 2015 11:38:48 -0700

Philadelphia Phillies SS Andres Blanco is starting at third base and batting seventh Tuesday, July 21, against the Tampa Bay Rays.

Fantasy Tip: Blanco ($1,900, 3.8% of cap) doesn't have a huge sample to go off of this year, but this is a rare start for him. In his 11 at bats this month, he's hitting .363, however, so he might be worth a spot start, especially when he's so cheap on FantasyScore.

Phillies | Cesar Hernandez sitting out

Sat, 11 Jul 2015 16:16:19 -0700

Philadelphia Phillies 2B Cesar Hernandez is out of the lineup Saturday, July 11, with 2B Andres Blanco hitting second.

Fantasy Tip: Blanco ($1,900, 3.8% of cap) doesn't do a lot to warrant a FantasyScore start.

Phillies | Ryan Howard out Saturday

Sat, 04 Jul 2015 14:21:34 -0700

Philadelphia Phillies 1B Ryan Howard is out of the lineup Saturday, July 4, against a left-hander. SS Andres Blanco is hitting second in his place.

Fantasy Tip: Blanco ($1,900, 3.8% of cap) .265-2-9 isn't in there for his offense, and he shouldn't be used on FantasyScore.
