Philadelphia Phillies manager Ryne Sandberg resigned from his position Friday, June 26, the club announced.
Fantasy Tip: Sandberg wasn't provided a strong stable to work with, and his 119-159 record as manager of the Phillies indicates it. His stepping down has minimal implications for fantasy players, as outside Maikel Franco there isn't a lot to be excited about in Philadelphia, especially with Cole Hamels and Jonathan Papelbon likely on their way out via trades.

Philadelphia Phillies SP Miguel Alfredo Gonzalez is still an enigma because no one knows what he will bring to the team, but manager Ryne Sandberg was excited as he watched Gonzalez throw when spring workouts began. "He shows deception with his delivery, so that's something," Sandberg said. "I'll be anxious to see how he continues to look as he continues to build arm strength."
Fantasy Tip: It's still way too early to judge. The Phillies won't have Cole Hamels for Opening Day due to injury, but the team signed A.J. Burnett as a backup. Gonzalez may project as a fifth starter, but his contract value drastically dropped due to injury issues. Watch this spring.
