Phillies | Vincent Velasquez strong in return

Mon, 27 Jun 2016 23:09:15 -0700

Philadelphia Phillies SP Vincent Velasquez showed little rust in his first start since coming off the disabled list against the Arizona Diamondbacks on Monday, June 27, yielding five singles while fanning seven over five scoreless frames en route to his sixth win of the season.

Fantasy Tip: Velasquez, who suffered a biceps injury in his last start on June 8, was cut off after 84 pitches, but his stuff was as good as ever. The 24-year-old recorded 16 swinging strikes Monday and is up to 80 strikeouts over 66 2/3 innings. Velasquez should be considered a middle-of-the-road fantasy option, however, in his next start at home on Saturday against the Kansas City Royals.

Mon, 27 Jun 2016 05:15:03 -0700

Philadelphia Phillies SP Vincent Velasquez (biceps) was activated off the 15-day disabled list Sunday, June 26. In a corresponding roster move, RP Elvis Araujo was sent to Class AAA Lehigh Valley.

Fantasy Tip: Velasquez will start Monday against the Arizona Diamondbacks. Go ahead and activate him in all formats, but be careful that his first outing or two back may be a bit rocky as he gets his pitching legs together.

Phillies | Adam Morgan available in relief Sunday

Sun, 26 Jun 2016 07:47:13 -0700

Philadelphia Phillies SP Adam Morgan will be available out of the bullpen for the game against the San Francisco Giants Sunday, June 26. He was originally scheduled to pitch versus the Arizona Diamondbacks Monday, June 27, but it now appears as though SP Vincent Velasquez (biceps) will be activated from the disabled list to make the start.

Fantasy Tip: This could be a sign that Morgan's days with the parent club are numbered. The 26-year-old left-hander is 1-6 with a 6.55 ERA through 11 starts this year and is not a recommended fantasy option in any format.
