Phillies | Odubel Herrera in a funk

Wed, 20 Jul 2016 16:55:21 -0700

Philadelphia Phillies OF Odubel Herrera has gone just 2-for-13 with a walk and four strikeouts during the team's three-game losing streak. Manager Pete Mackanin felt Herrera needed a rest Wednesday, July 20. Herrera is also 4-for-36 (.111) in the last nine games and has hit .247/.300/.380 in 43 games since June 1. However, Mackanin isn't particularly worried just yet. Herrera has just eight walks in his last 40 games in the last 6 1/2 weeks after drawing 38 free passes in his first 54 games through the first two months.

Fantasy Tip: In the grand scheme of things, Herrera owners shouldn't be terribly concerned. After all, he's still sporting a very nice .285/.369/.416 slash line with 10 long balls, 33 RBI and 12 stolen bases. He's already set career highs in homers and will surpass his 16 steals from last year. However, keep an eye on him as he's slumping and consider benching him if he doesn't snap out of it soon.

Phillies | Odubel Herrera sitting vs. the Fish

Wed, 20 Jul 2016 12:05:29 -0700

Philadelphia Phillies OF Odubel Herrera is not in the starting lineup Wednesday, July 20. OF Tyler Goeddel is starting in left field and batting second against Miami Marlins SP Wei-Yin Chen Wednesday. Phillies OF Peter Bourjos also climbs into the leadoff spot with Herrera out of the lineup.

Fantasy Tip: Herrera has emerged as a solid fantasy option in all formats this season with 51 runs, 10 home runs, 33 RBI, 12 stolen bases and a .285/.369/.416 slash line. Goeddel is a desperation option in all fantasy settings given his .573 OPS for the season, but Bourjos could be a potential flier in daily contests Wednesday. Bourjos has an active 40-for-117 (.342 batting average) stretch at the plate since Wednesday, June 1.

Phillies | Odubel Herrera cracks 10th homer

Mon, 04 Jul 2016 19:14:29 -0700

Philadelphia Phillies OF Odubel Herrera finished 2-for-4 and belted a two-run home run in a win over the Atlanta Braves on Monday, July 4.

The 24-year-old Venezuelan, who is batting .303 and has 32 RBI, has also scored 48 runs and swiped 12 bags to become a five-category performer that needs to be started almost universally in fantasy leagues.

Phillies | Odubel Herrera shines versus Diamondbacks

Mon, 27 Jun 2016 22:58:50 -0700

Philadelphia Phillies OF Odubel Herrera notched his fifth career four-hit game against the Arizona Diamondbacks on Monday, June 27, going 4-for-5 with an RBI single and two runs scored.

Fantasy Tip: Herrera increased his average this month to .284 following Monday's effort, which is much more in line with .313 and .324 marks he posted in April and May, respectively. Somewhat surprisingly, Herrera is a top-20 fantasy outfielder, so he needs to remain in lineups for the foreseeable future.

Phillies | Three Phils sitting out Saturday

Sat, 25 Jun 2016 15:56:38 -0700

Philadelphia Phillies OF Odubel Herrera, OF Cody Asche and 2B Cesar Hernandez are out of the lineup Saturday, June 25. OF Peter Bourjos leads off with 2B Andres Blanco hitting fifth and OF Jimmy Paredes hitting seventh.

Fantasy Tip: Bourjos is hitting .375 this month and hits lefties to a .327 clip. Madison Bumgarner isn't your typical lefty, but Bourjos has upside tonight. Blanco has minimal fantasy intrigue, but Paredes doesn't at this point.

Phillies | Odubel Herrera resting Monday

Mon, 06 Jun 2016 11:13:27 -0700

Philadelphia Phillies OF Odubel Herrera is not in the starting lineup Monday, June 6. OF Peter Bourjos is starting in center field and is hitting seventh against Chicago Cubs SP Jon Lester. Also, 2B Cesar Hernandez moves up to the leadoff spot.

Fantasy Tip: Hernandez has a very favorable lineup spot hitting leadoff, but the lefty-lefty matchup against Lester makes him not all that attractive in daily contests. Bourjos has lost significant playing time of late with Cody Asche back from injury and with Jimmy Paredes in town. Bourjos should only be used as depth in deep NL-only leagues for his speed.

Wed, 25 May 2016 17:22:57 -0700

Philadelphia Phillies OF Odubel Herrera went 1-for-4 with a three-run homer and a walk against the Detroit Tigers Wednesday, May 25.

Phillies | Odubel Herrera productive at plate

Mon, 23 May 2016 20:41:15 -0700

Philadelphia Phillies OF Odubel Herrera went 3-for-4 with one RBI against the Detroit Tigers Monday, May 23, but was benched late in the game for lack of hustle.

Fantasy Tip: Herrera has picked up at least one hit in 15 of the 20 games this month and currently has a .335 batting average this season. He is an attractive option for owners looking for batting average help, but owners will need to see if he will be benched for a game because of his lack of hustle.
