Phillies | Ryan Howard, Cesar Hernandez out of lineup

Sun, 29 May 2016 08:19:16 -0700

Philadelphia Phillies 1B Ryan Howard and Cesar Hernandez are not in the starting lineup against Chicago Cubs SP John Lackey Sunday, May 29. INF Andres Blanco will bat third and play second base, while 1B Tommy Joseph will bat fifth and start at first base. In addition, OF Tyler Goeddel is back in the lineup as the left fielder and will bat seventh.

Fantasy Tip: Joseph carries a four-game hitting streak into Sunday's contest and is batting .290 with two homers and four RBI through 31 at-bats, while Goeddel is batting .313 through 64 at-bats this month. Both players can be viewed as productive sources of salary cap relief in DFS.

Phillies | Cesar Hernandez out Wednesday

Wed, 25 May 2016 09:07:41 -0700

Philadelphia Phillies 2B Cesar Hernandez is out of the starting lineup Wednesday, May 25. 2B Andres Blanco is starting at the keystone and is hitting seventh against Detroit Tigers SP Anibal Sanchez.

Fantasy Tip: Blanco doesn't offer owners much upside with the stick. He's batting .264 with one home run and seven RBI and is a deep sleeper that'll probably disappoint hitting lower in the batting order.

Phillies | Cesar Hernandez out of lineup Saturday

Sat, 21 May 2016 10:14:31 -0700

Philadelphia Phillies INF Andres Blanco will bat third and start at second base against SP Williams Perez Saturday, May 21, with 2B Cesar Hernandez receiving the day off. In addition, C Carlos Ruiz will start behind the plate and bat sixth, while OF David Lough will play right field and bat ninth.

Fantasy Tip: Blanco and Ruiz have both been productive in limited playing time and are worth considering as value plays in daily fantasy contests. However, Lough has struggled at the plate and should be viewed as nothing more than desperation cap relief.

Phillies | Cesar Hernandez takes a seat

Thu, 12 May 2016 12:47:52 -0700

Philadelphia Phillies 2B Cesar Hernandez is not in the starting lineup Thursday, May 12. 2B Andres Blanco is starting at the keystone and is in the two-hole against Atlanta Braves SP Aaron Blair.

Fantasy Tip: Don't let Blanco's .324 (12-for-37) average fool you. He sports a .269 career average and only 12 home runs in nine years. The two-hole is a nice spot, but there's not a ton of fantasy upside for Blanco in daily formats. He's a deep sleeper, at best.

Phillies | Freddy Galvis dropped in order

Fri, 06 May 2016 13:34:22 -0700

Philadelphia Phillies SS Freddy Galvis is being dropped to fifth in the batting order against Miami Marlins SP Wei-Yin Chen Friday, May 6. 2B Cesar Hernandez moves up to the two-hole.

Fantasy Tip: Galvis and Hernandez are both similar hitters in their slap styles without much power, and both should only be depth pieces for deep mixed and NL-only formats. Hernandez gains a bit of value in daily leagues tonight, while Galvis has better opportunities to drive in runs. Regardless, they're both low-end middle infield options.

Phillies | Peter Bourjos, Cesar Hernandez sitting

Tue, 19 Apr 2016 11:26:21 -0700

Philadelphia Phillies OF Peter Bourjos and 2B Cesar Hernandez are not in the starting lineup Tuesday, April 19. OF Tyler Goeddel is starting in left field and batting eighth, while SS Andres Blanco is at the keystone and is hitting third against New York Mets SP Logan Verrett.

Fantasy Tip: The Phils avoided having to face Jacob deGrom tonight, but Verrett is no slouch after throwing six shutout innings in deGrom's turn last week. Goeddel and Blanco are both desperation daily picks if you're looking to save salary cap space. Blanco is slightly more attractive hitting in the middle of the order.

Phillies | Cesar Hernandez resting

Fri, 15 Apr 2016 11:29:06 -0700

Philadelphia Phillies 2B Cesar Hernandez is not in the starting lineup Thursday, April 14. 2B Emmanuel Burriss is starting at the keystone and is hitting leadoff against Washington Nationals SP Joe Ross.

Fantasy Tip: Burriss is a light-hitting speed threat that doesn't move the needle at all in any fantasy format, even while hitting atop the Phils order Friday night.

Phillies | Freddy Galvis not in leadoff spot Tuesday

Tue, 12 Apr 2016 13:03:04 -0700

Philadelphia Phillies SS Freddy Galvis is batting sixth Tuesday, April 12, against the San Diego Padres. Galvis had been in the leadoff spot. 2B Cesar Hernandez is batting leadoff.

Fantasy Tip: Galvis has a .179 average to start the season and has just three runs batted in. Hernandez is a .409 hitter in the first week with one stolen base, so the Phillies appear to be juggling lineup spots. Hernandez projects as a decent top-lineup option (19 steals last year). It may take time for Galvis to warm up.

Phillies | Cesar Hernandez setting table Monday

Mon, 04 Apr 2016 10:06:32 -0700

Philadelphia Phillies 2B Cesar Hernandez is batting leadoff against Cincinnati Reds SP Raisel Iglesias opening day Monday, April 4.

Fantasy Tip: On a rebuilding team, Hernandez sets the table for a weak lineup minus Maikel Franco. Speed is Hernandez's main asset, and he'll likely only be attractive to those in deep NL-only leagues.

Phillies | Cesar Hernandez done

Mon, 14 Sep 2015 08:47:30 -0700

Philadelphia Phillies 2B Cesar Hernandez (thumb) was placed on the 60-day disabled list with a dislocated left thumb. 2B Chase d'Arnaud had his contract selected from Class AAA Lehigh Valley.

Fantasy Tip: Andres Blanco ($2,700, 5.4% of cap) figures to get some run at 2B, and d'Arnaud could as well. Neither are going to be good options on FantasyScore very often.
