Phillies | Cesar Hernandez making an impact

Tue, 07 Jul 2015 19:44:32 -0700

Philadelphia Phillies 2B Cesar Hernandez will be the starting second baseman even when 2B Chase Utley (ankle) returns, general manager Ruben Amaro Jr. assumes. "Hernandez has been one of our best players on the field right now in a variety of ways - running the bases, playing defense, playing with energy. He can switch-hit. He can run. He's doing a lot of the things that we want to see out of our young players," Amaro said.

Fantasy Tip: Hernandez ($3,800, 7.6% of cap) has been a steals machine of late with nine over his past 10 games, and he has a .429/.481/.514 slash line over his past 17 games with 15 runs and 10 RBI. Seasonal owners will want to note his positional versatility, and FantasyScore players can take advantage of the cap relief and upside he provides when facing a favorable opposing pitcher.

Phillies | Chase Utley may have lost job

Tue, 07 Jul 2015 16:38:31 -0700

Philadelphia Phillies 2B Chase Utley (ankle) won't be guaranteed the starting second base job when he returns, according to general manager Ruben Amaro Jr. "Not for me he's not," Amaro said. "Cesar Hernandez is our best second baseman."

Fantasy Tip: Hernandez ($3,800, 7.6% of cap) has hit .438 (28-for-64) with a 1.009 OPS since June 21, and he's hard to ignore on FantasyScore at that cheap price. He also has nine stolen bases in that span. Hernandez should be owned in the majority of traditional leagues, too, at least while he's playing well and in an everyday role.

Phillies | Cesar Hernandez might be everyday 2B

Tue, 30 Jun 2015 18:52:07 -0700

Philadelphia Phillies 2B Cesar Hernandez has done such an admirable job filling in for 2B Chase Utley (ankle) that he could be the everyday second baseman even when Utley returns. "I would like to think Cesar has proven that he deserves a chance to be the everyday second baseman," manager Pete Mackanin said Tuesday, June 30. "That remains to be seen. I don't know. I don't want to get ahead of myself. Let's just wait to see when Chase is healthy and how he feels and we'll go from there."

Fantasy Tip: Hernandez is hitting .436 (17-for-39) with four doubles, seven RBIs and a 1.016 OPS overh is past 10 games, while Utley posted a .179 average with a .532 OPS in 249 plate appearances before his injury. Hernandez ($2,100; or 4.2% of cap) is a stud in FantasyScore at this price level while he is running hot.

Phillies | Cesar Hernandez collects three hits

Tue, 23 Jun 2015 22:40:25 -0700

Philadelphia Phillies 2B Cesar Hernandez made the start Tuesday, June 23, against the New York Yankees. He had a double and two singles with two runs scored and an RBI in four at-bats.

Fantasy Tip: Hernandez ($2,100; or 4.2% of cap) is likely to see regular at-bats now that Chase Utley (ankle) has landed on the 15-day disabled list. At this low price Hernandez is a decent addition in FantasyScore as a salary saver.

Phillies | Chase Utley resting

Tue, 23 Jun 2015 12:38:36 -0700

Philadelphia Phillies 2B Chase Utley is not in the starting lineup against New York Yankees left-handed SP CC Sabathia Tuesday, June 23. 2B Cesar Hernandez is once again starting at the keystone and hitting second.

Fantasy Tip: Hernandez ($2,100, 4.2% of cap) is a pesky light-hitting sleeper option at second base on FantasyScore. He's hitting .343 (12-for-35) against southpaws this year, too, making him at least worth a look for some cap relief. Sabathia is allowing a slash line of .335/.367/.558 to right-handers, and 14 of the 15 homers he's allowed this year have come against righties.

Phillies | Chase Utley as the DH Monday

Mon, 22 Jun 2015 13:09:56 -0700

Philadelphia Phillies 2B Chase Utley is serving as the designated hitter and batting sixth in the order against New York Yankees SP Michael Pineda Monday, June 22. 2B Cesar Hernandez is playing second base and hitting second.

Fantasy Tip: Utley ($3,300, 6.6% of cap) has struggled all season (.182/.258/.280) with four home runs and 25 RBI, and he shouldn't be on your FantasyScore radar, especially while facing Pineda, who has been one of the Yankees' most consistent starters in 2015.

Phillies | Chase Utley out Sunday

Sun, 21 Jun 2015 08:39:29 -0700

Philadelphia Phillies 2B Chase Utley isn't in the starting lineup Sunday, June 21, against the St. Louis Cardinals. 2B Cesar Hernandez will start at second base and hit second in the order against RHP Michael Wacha.

Fantasy Tip: Hernandez ($2,100, 4.2% of cap) went 2-for-5 with a double, a run scored and an RBI in his most recent start, representing one his two multi-hit games in his last three starts. Hernandez is a switch-hitter who prefers left-handed pitching, and he should be avoided against Wacha.

Phillies | Chase Utley out of lineup

Fri, 19 Jun 2015 11:40:36 -0700

Philadelphia Phillies 2B Chase Utley is out of the lineup Friday, June 19, in favor of 2B Cesar Hernandez.

Fantasy Tip: Utley is sitting against left-hander Tyler Lyons. Lyons has been spotty, but Hernandez ($2,100, 4.2% of cap) and his .160 June average isn't worth using on FantasyScore.

Phillies | Chase Utley to start at 1B

Tue, 16 Jun 2015 13:22:11 -0700

Philadelphia Phillies 2B Chase Utley will be the starting first baseman against Baltimore Orioles SP Chris Tillman Tuesday, June 16, and is batting fifth in the lineup. 2B Cesar Hernandez will start at second base and is batting first in the lineup.

Fantasy Tip: Utley (3,300, 6.6% of cap) has been on a lengthy cold streak with two hits in his last 10 games. Owners on FantasyScore probably should avoid using Utley until he is more productive at the plate. Hernandez ($2,100, 4.2% of cap) has four hits in his last three games but is still hitting .190 this month and should not be a starting option.
