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.

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

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.

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.
