Thu, 28 Jul 2016 17:58:19 -0700

Phillies | Peter Bourjos likely to DL

Wed, 27 Jul 2016 10:28:56 -0700

Philadelphia Phillies OF Peter Bourjos (shoulder) is likely headed to the disabled list due to his right shoulder injury Thursday, July 28. OF Aaron Altherr (wrist) is expected to be activated Thursday after completing a rehab assignment.

Fantasy Tip: Altherr is hitting .351 with a homer, five RBI and two steals in 37 at-bats in the minors. He's an attractive pickup in NL-only leagues because he figures to play a lot the rest of the way. As for Bourjos, the team was hoping to trade him to make room for Altherr. Either way, his playing time is likely to heavily decline the rest of the way. He can be dropped if you need the space in NL-only leagues.

Phillies | Aaron Altherr moves rehab to Class AA

Thu, 21 Jul 2016 17:57:25 -0700

Philadelphia Phillies OF Aaron Altherr (wrist) had his rehab assignment transferred to Class AA Reading.

Fantasy Tip: Altherr is quickly making up for lost time, as he hit .375 in 32 plate appearances between his previous two stops. He was a modest breakout candidate this season before enduring his wrist injury back in spring training, so he'll definitely be someone to watch, at least for deeper formats, as he continues to progress in his rehab. Altherr definitely flashed some notable potential last year as a rookie.

Phillies | Two Phillies to soon patrol outfield

Tue, 19 Jul 2016 08:34:07 -0700

Philadelphia Phillies OF Aaron Altherr (wrist) and OF Nick Williams are expected to be called up in the next few weeks. Altherr has a couple of weeks left on a rehab assignment, and Williams has hit safely in 26 of 28 games at Class AAA Lehigh Valley. OF Peter Bourjos and OF Cody Asche have the potential to lose their spots.

Fantasy Tip: Altherr had a .232-5-22 line with six steals in 142 at-bats last season, but he's coming off of wrist surgery. Williams has a .289-8-44 line at Triple-A. Neither are projected to make huge impacts, but both are NL-only depth options if you're looking ahead for potential callups.
