Phillies | Freddy Galvis sitting Tuesday

Tue, 26 Apr 2016 12:02:21 -0700

Philadelphia Phillies SS Freddy Galvis is not in the starting lineup Tuesday, April 26. SS Andres Blanco is starting at the 6 and batting second against Washington Nationals SP Max Scherzer.

Fantasy Tip: Blanco is a light-hitting utility infielder that should be avoided against Scherzer in daily formats Tuesday, despite hitting in a favorable lineup spot.

Phillies | Peter Bourjos, Cesar Hernandez sitting

Tue, 19 Apr 2016 11:26:21 -0700

Philadelphia Phillies OF Peter Bourjos and 2B Cesar Hernandez are not in the starting lineup Tuesday, April 19. OF Tyler Goeddel is starting in left field and batting eighth, while SS Andres Blanco is at the keystone and is hitting third against New York Mets SP Logan Verrett.

Fantasy Tip: The Phils avoided having to face Jacob deGrom tonight, but Verrett is no slouch after throwing six shutout innings in deGrom's turn last week. Goeddel and Blanco are both desperation daily picks if you're looking to save salary cap space. Blanco is slightly more attractive hitting in the middle of the order.

Phillies | Freddy Galvis resting Thursday

Thu, 14 Apr 2016 09:04:34 -0700

Philadelphia Phillies SS Freddy Galvis is not in the starting lineup Thursday, April 14. SS Andres Blanco is starting at shortstop and is hitting sixth against San Diego Padres SP Drew Pomeranz.

Fantasy Tip: Blanco has 11 career home runs in nine years, so he's not much of an offensive force and is a very low-end daily option against the Friars Thursday.

Phillies | Andres Blanco hitting fifth

Thu, 07 Apr 2016 07:06:27 -0700

Philadelphia Phillies 2B Andres Blanco is hitting fifth Thursday, April 7, against Cincinnati Reds SP Robert Stephenson.

Fantasy Tip: Blanco is anything but a heart-of-the-order hitter, but he could be a DFS option at a basement price.

Phillies | Freddy Galvis sitting out

Fri, 11 Sep 2015 17:40:08 -0700

Philadelphia Phillies SS Freddy Galvis is not in the starting lineup for the second game of a doubleheader Friday, Sept. 11. SS Andres Blanco will start at shortstop against Chicago Cubs SP Kyle Hendricks and is batting third in the lineup.

Fantasy Tip: Galvis ($3,800, 7.6% of cap) likely will return to the lineup in the next game or two. Blanco ($2,700, 5.4% of cap) is hitting .306 in limited playing time this season but probably is not the best option on FantasyScore.

Phillies | Freddy Galvis not in action

Tue, 08 Sep 2015 12:59:24 -0700

Philadelphia Phillies SS Freddy Galvis is not in the starting lineup Tuesday, Sept. 8, against the Atlanta Braves. SS Andres Blanco is in for Galvis and will hit fifth against Braves SP Ryan Weber.

Fantasy Tip: Galvis ($3,800, 7.6% of cap) appears to be getting a normal night off. Blanco ($1,900, 3.8% of cap) has a .307 home average at Citizens Bank Park and has three homers, so he might be an excellent source of salary-cap relief.

Phillies | Andres Blanco starting at third base

Sat, 05 Sep 2015 10:23:28 -0700

Philadelphia Phillies INF Andres Blanco will bat sixth and play third base against Boston Red Sox SP Wade Miley Saturday, Sept. 5.

Fantasy Tip: Blanco ($1,900, 3.8% of cap) is 6-for-16 with a double, triple, two RBIs and three runs scored over the past week and makes an excellent source of salary cap relief for FantasyScore owners.

Phillies | Cody Asche starting at third base

Fri, 04 Sep 2015 14:06:10 -0700

Philadelphia Phillies 3B Cody Asche is starting at third base and batting seventh against Boston Red Sox SP Joe Kelly Friday, Sept. 4. SS Andres Blanco is not in the starting lineup Friday.

Fantasy Tip: Blanco ($1,900, 3.8% of cap) has been receiving the majority of starts at third base of late, but you'll want to avoid him in all fantasy formats Friday. He also doesn't warrant ownership outside of cavernous mixed and NL-only leagues. FantasyScore plays can also avoid Asche ($2,500, 5.0% of cap) Friday. Kelly ($6,900, 13.8% of cap) has been lights out over his past five starts with a 1.69 ERA.

Phillies | Cesar Hernandez playing third base

Sat, 29 Aug 2015 12:47:37 -0700

Philadelphia Phillies INF Cesar Hernandez will bat leadoff and play third base against San Diego Padres SP Colin Rea Saturday, Aug. 29. 3B Andres Blanco is not in the starting lineup.

Fantasy Tip: Hernandez ($3,800, 7.6% of cap) has cooled off considerably recently. He is just 3-for-25 over the last seven days and should be avoided in FantasyScore tonight.

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.
