Phillies | Cesar Hernandez out Wednesday

Wed, 25 May 2016 09:07:41 -0700

Philadelphia Phillies 2B Cesar Hernandez is out of the starting lineup Wednesday, May 25. 2B Andres Blanco is starting at the keystone and is hitting seventh against Detroit Tigers SP Anibal Sanchez.

Fantasy Tip: Blanco doesn't offer owners much upside with the stick. He's batting .264 with one home run and seven RBI and is a deep sleeper that'll probably disappoint hitting lower in the batting order.

Phillies | Cesar Hernandez out of lineup Saturday

Sat, 21 May 2016 10:14:31 -0700

Philadelphia Phillies INF Andres Blanco will bat third and start at second base against SP Williams Perez Saturday, May 21, with 2B Cesar Hernandez receiving the day off. In addition, C Carlos Ruiz will start behind the plate and bat sixth, while OF David Lough will play right field and bat ninth.

Fantasy Tip: Blanco and Ruiz have both been productive in limited playing time and are worth considering as value plays in daily fantasy contests. However, Lough has struggled at the plate and should be viewed as nothing more than desperation cap relief.

Phillies | Maikel Franco dropped to fifth

Wed, 18 May 2016 07:32:56 -0700

Philadelphia Phillies 3B Maikel Franco was dropped to fifth Wednesday, May 18, with SS Andres Blanco hitting third.

Fantasy Tip: Franco is hitting just .203 this month, but he has two homers and nine RBI. Blanco may be today's weakest three-hole hitter, but he is hitting .310 on the year. Franco is a midrange option against Tom Koehler, while Blanco is a low-end consideration.

Phillies | Cesar Hernandez takes a seat

Thu, 12 May 2016 12:47:52 -0700

Philadelphia Phillies 2B Cesar Hernandez is not in the starting lineup Thursday, May 12. 2B Andres Blanco is starting at the keystone and is in the two-hole against Atlanta Braves SP Aaron Blair.

Fantasy Tip: Don't let Blanco's .324 (12-for-37) average fool you. He sports a .269 career average and only 12 home runs in nine years. The two-hole is a nice spot, but there's not a ton of fantasy upside for Blanco in daily formats. He's a deep sleeper, at best.

Thu, 05 May 2016 08:21:08 -0700

Philadelphia Phillies 3B Maikel Franco is out of the lineup Thursday, May 5, with 3B Andres Blanco hitting third.

Fantasy Tip: Blanco has a surprising .323-1-5 line in 31 at-bats. He's a very low-end streamer option against Jaime Garcia today.

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.
