Phillies | David Lough up, Cedric Hunter down

Mon, 18 Apr 2016 11:53:47 -0700

Philadelphia Phillies OF David Lough was recalled from the minors Monday, April 18, and OF Cedric Hunter was optioned in a corresponding move.

Fantasy Tip: With Hunter now in the minors, Lough will likely see most of the playing time in left field for the Phils while splitting time with Tyler Goeddel. Lough hit just .201 (27-for-134) with four home runs and 12 RBI for the Baltimore Orioles last year and is only a depth option for those in deeper NL leagues.

C Carlos Ruiz will start at catcher and is batting sixth, while OF Tyler Goeddel will start in left field and is batting eighth.

Fantasy Tip: Ruf, Ruiz and Goeddel are all hitting under .200 over the first few weeks of the season and are not strong candidates for fantasy owners.

Phillies | Cedric Hunter sits Tuesday

Tue, 12 Apr 2016 13:10:18 -0700

Philadelphia Phillies OF Cedric Hunter is not in the starting lineup Tuesday, April 12, against the San Diego Padres.

Fantasy Tip: Hunter, a lefty hitter, is likely out because the Padres are throwing Robbie Erlin on the mound. Expect Hunter to come in off the bench if San Diego switches to a right-hander, but for now sideline him. Tyler Goeddel, who is batting eighth in place of Hunter, has no hits in five at-bats and carries no value at this time.

Phillies | Peter Bourjos out Friday

Fri, 08 Apr 2016 08:57:49 -0700

Philadelphia Phillies OF Peter Bourjos is not in the starting lineup Friday, April 8. OF Cedric Hunter moves over to right field and is hitting sixth, while 2B Emmanuel Burriss is starting in left field and hitting eighth against New York Mets SP Jacob deGrom.

Fantasy Tip: Hunter hit his first homer of the season yesterday and is the more attractive deep sleeper for daily games, but neither he nor Burriss are attractive Friday afternoon against deGrom.

Phillies | Tyler Goeddel, Cedric Hunter to platoon

Wed, 06 Apr 2016 17:16:16 -0700

Philadelphia Phillies OFs Tyler Goeddel and Cedric Hunter will platoon in left field, at least for the beginning of the regular season, according to manager Pete Mackanin. The right-handed-hitting Goeddel is likely to see most of his playing time versus southpaws, with the left-handed-hitting Hunter expected to see the bulk of the action against righties.

Fantasy Tip: Entering play Wednesday, Hunter and Goeddel had eight combined MLB at-bats. Both players should be avoided outside of NL-only fantasy leagues and don't have enough of a track record to merit using in daily fantasy contests.

Phillies | Philly has several LF options

Wed, 09 Mar 2016 08:55:03 -0800

Philadelphia Phillies OFs Cody Asche, Darnell Sweeney, Tyler Goeddel, Cedric Hunter and David Lough are all possibilities to play left field with OF Aaron Altherr (wrist) out four to six months.

Fantasy Tip: Asche has the most experience after hitting 12 home runs in 425 at-bats last year for Philly. His second half shows his power can play, but he won't help much in average and doesn't do anything else particularly well. Keep your expectations tempered as mainly an NL-only weapon.
