Philadelphia Phillies OF Domonic Brown and 1B Ryan Howard are both being considered as options at DH during the team's series against the Texas Rangers beginning Monday, March 31. If Brown serves as DH, Tony Gwynn Jr. is expected to play in the outfield and if Howard serves as DH, John Mayberry is expected to start at first base.

The Philadelphia Phillies are reportedly making OF John Mayberry available as trade bait.
Fantasy Tip: In the last few days, we have discovered that OF Darin Ruf (oblique) and INF/OF Freddy Galvis (knee) will begin the season on the disabled list, so the Phils will probably decide to keep Mayberry for the time being. He should only be considered as a late-round draft pick for NL-only leagues.

The Houston Astros are calling around for first basemen, which include Boston Red Sox 1B Mike Carp, Philadelphia Phillies OF John Mayberry and Washington Nationals 1B Tyler Moore. However, all of them are unlikely to be fits.

Philadelphia Phillies OF John Mayberry Jr. is not a lock for the roster, and the team can release him with 16 days left in spring training and pay him just one-sixth ($265,000) of his $1.59 million salary. Mayberry's biggest competition for a roster spot appears to be 1B/OF Darin Ruf.

Philadelphia Phillies 1B/OF Darin Ruf will get the bulk of the playing time at first base while 1B Ryan Howard (knee) remains sidelined, as a result of the team trading INF Michael Young to the Los Angeles Dodgers. INF Kevin Frandsen and 1B/OF John Mayberry Jr. are also capable of playing the position. Minor league 3B Maikel Franco, who has recently started playing first base, remains a long-shot to be called up this season.

The Philadelphia Phillies designated OF Delmon Young for assignment Friday, Aug. 9. Young had a slash line of .261/.302/.397 this year.
Fantasy Tip: Darin Ruf will get playing time at first base until Ryan Howard (knee) returns, but he'll find a spot in the outfield after that. John Mayberry Jr. and Casper Wells will both have short-term value in outfield spots as part-time players the rest of the way, too.
