Philadelphia Phillies 2B Cesar Hernandez will start at shortstop Sunday, May 3, against the Miami Marlins. Hernandez is batting seventh in the order.
Fantasy Tip: Hernandez ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) has a paltry .219 batting average in the early going. A switch-hitter, Cosart will go up against Marlins righty Jarred Cosart. Hernandez is hitting .125 off right-handers this season and has hit just .242 for his career. FantasyScore owners will need to look elsewhere.

Philadelphia Phillies SS Freddy Galvis is not in the starting lineup Wednesday, April 15. 2B Cesar Hernandez is starting at shortstop and hitting second in the batting order against New York Mets SP Jon Niese.
Fantasy Tip: Hernandez ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) is a light-hitting backup infield option for the Phils, and he should be ignored at FantasyScore tonight.

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.
