Phillies | Andres Blanco breaks finger

Sun, 24 Jul 2016 16:54:30 -0700

Philadelphia Phillies SS Andres Blanco (finger) suffered a broken index finger against the Pittsburgh Pirates Sunday, July 24, and is expected to land on the 15-day disabled list.

Fantasy Tip: Blanco was little more than a DFS flier, so his injury shouldn't have much of an impact on owners in season-long formats.

Phillies | Maikel Franco sitting again vs. Pirates

Sun, 24 Jul 2016 08:35:51 -0700

Philadelphia Phillies 3B Maikel Franco (wrist) is not in the starting lineup Sunday, July 24. INF Andres Blanco is starting at third base and batting third against Pittsburgh Pirates SP Jameson Taillon Sunday.

Fantasy Tip: Franco is missing his second consecutive game after being hit by a pitch in the wrist and leaving the game Friday, July 22. He's emerging as a solid power option at the hot corner with 18 home runs and 55 RBI this season. Blanco is nothing more than a low-priced flier in daily contests Sunday.

Phillies | Maikel Franco out of the lineup

Sat, 23 Jul 2016 11:07:53 -0700

Philadelphia Phillies 3B Maikel Franco (wrist) is not in the starting lineup Saturday, July 23. 3B Andres Blanco will take his place at third base and bat third against Pittsburgh Pirates Tyler Glasnow.

Fantasy Tip: Blanco is a capable replacement for Franco in the heart of the lineup. He has hit better on the left side, too. Blanco is a decent starting option at a lower-than-usual price for a starter batting third in the lineup.

Phillies | Ryan Howard draws first post-break start

Sat, 16 Jul 2016 12:55:43 -0700

Philadelphia Phillies 1B Ryan Howard is in the lineup, batting fifth against New York Mets SP Logan Verrett and playing first base Saturday, July 16, in place of 1B Tommy Joseph. INF Andres Blanco will hit right behind Howard and replace 2B Cesar Hernandez, while C Carlos Ruiz will fill in for C Cameron Rupp behind the plate and follow Blanco in the order.

Fantasy Tip: Slashing a miserable .158/.217/.356 this season, it is hard to defend using Howard in just about any format. Blanco is getting his first start since July 2 and brings virtually nothing to the fantasy table. Ruiz is 3-for-8 in July but only has 11 RBI in part-time duty this year; he has not homered since April 27, so he can be avoided in fantasy as well.
