Philadelphia Phillies OFs Darin Ruf and Jeff Francoeur are both in the starting lineup against the Boston Red Sox and SP Rick Porcello Wednesday, April 8. Ruf is starting in left field and hitting fifth, while Francoeur is in right field and hitting seventh. SS Odubel Herrera and Grady Sizemore will start on the bench.
Fantasy Tip: Ruf ($2,100, 4.2% of cap) and Francoeur ($2,000, 4.0% of cap) will see occasional playing time in 2015 based on matchups for the Phils. Neither is a strong daily play Wednesday night against Porcello, though, unless you're looking to go cheap for an outfield spot to save money for the rest of your lineup.

Philadelphia Phillies OF Odubel Herrera, a Rule 5 selection from December, will be the starting center fielder in Philadelphia this spring.
Fantasy Tip: Herrera made the team, sending Ben Revere over to left and Grady Sizemore over to right field. Domonic Brown is recovering from an Achilles' injury and Sizemore has had a bad spring, so further changes could be coming. If you have room on your NL roster to stash Herrera, take a pick and see what happens.
