Philadelphia Phillies general manager Ruben Amaro Jr. indicated that he doesn't feel 3B Maikel Franco is ready to come up to the majors, even with 3B Cody Asche (hamstring) on the disabled list. "He's just not playing good enough baseball yet," Ruben Amaro Jr. said. "He's not really ready to be a big leaguer yet." Franco is hitting .231 with four home runs, 19 RBIs and a .669 OPS with Triple-A Lehigh Valley. INF Cesar Hernandez continues to play third base with Asche out.
Fantasy Tip: The Phils don't want to rush one of their top prospects. Can you blame them? Francisco could easily be up later this summer or as a September call-up, but don't feel the urgency just yet to add him and stash him on your roster.

The Philadelphia Phillies have placed 3B Cody Asche (hamstring) on the 15-day disabled list because of a strained left hamstring. In a corresponding move, RP Justin De Fratus has been recalled from Triple-A Lehigh Valley. The move is retroactive to Friday, May 23.
Fantasy Tip: INF Cesar Hernandez will start at third base for the time being, but shouldn't be considered outside of deep NL-only leagues. There is a possibility that 3B Maikel Franco (illness) could be promoted from the minors if Asche is sidelined for an extended period of time but he is currently battling an upper respiratory illness.

Philadelphia Phillies minor league 2B Cesar Hernandez has been sent from Triple-A Lehigh Valley to Double-A Reading to play center field. He had been scheduled to participate in the International League's All-Star Game this week before the move. "He'll be playing exclusively in center field to see if that's an option for us," general manager Ruben Amaro Jr. said Sunday, July 14. "He struggled yesterday but it's a new position for him. But we'll give him a shot." Amaro said the team is in the market for a center fielder following the injury to OF Ben Revere (ankle) but will consider internal options.
