Phillies | David Buchanan hurls quality start

Fri, 31 Jul 2015 19:25:20 -0700

Philadelphia Phillies SP David Buchanan (2-5) allowed three runs on eight hits over 7 1/3 innings in a victory over the Atlanta Braves Friday, July 31, with no walks and four strikeouts.

Fantasy Tip: Buchanan ($3,000, 6.0% of cap) lowered his ERA to 6.44 and appears to have a regular rotation spot for the Phils following the trade of Cole Hamels to the Texas Rangers. He will make his next start against the Los Angeles Dodgers Thursday, Aug. 6, but should be avoided in FantasyScore until he can put a string of solid starts together.

Phillies | David Buchanan starting vs. Braves

Fri, 31 Jul 2015 12:46:13 -0700

Philadelphia Phillies SP David Buchanan was officially recalled from Class AAA Lehigh Valley Friday, July 31, and he will start against the Atlanta Braves Friday.

Fantasy Tip: Buchanan ($3,000, 6.0% of cap) could grab the vacated rotation spot left by Cole Hamels ($8,900, 17.6% of cap), and he could be worth grabbing in NL-only formats. Buchanan's upside is limited, though. FantasyScore players should likely pass Friday, and at best, Buchanan should be viewed as a desperation flier.

Phillies | Chad Billingsley joins rotation

Sat, 02 May 2015 14:56:39 -0700

Philadelphia Phillies SP Chad Billingsley will join the rotation in place of SP David Buchanan. He will pitch Tuesday, May 5.

Fantasy Tip: Billingsley ($3,000, 6.0% of cap) may be worth looking into if his first start is all right, so keep an eye on how well he does once on the mound.

Phillies | David Buchanan optioned

Sat, 02 May 2015 13:32:31 -0700

Philadelphia Phillies SP David Buchanan was optioned to Triple-A Lehigh Valley on Saturday, May 2. The team, in a corresponding move, recalled RP Elvis Araujo.

Fantasy Tip: Buchanan ($3,000, 6.0% of cap) should be dropped from all applicable leagues, as he will likely spend quite some time at Triple-A to develop more seasoning. An 0-5 record can only get you so far in the majors.

Phillies | PHI may shop for fifth starter

Tue, 31 Mar 2015 00:08:56 -0700

The Philadelphia Phillies may look outside the organization for a fifth starter to complement SPs Cole Hamels, Aaron Harang, David Buchanan and Jerome Williams. Names tossed about include free-agent SP Jhoulys Chacin (Rockies), free-agent SP Scott Baker (Yankees) and free-agent SP Felix Doubront (Cubs).

Fantasy Tip: It may be worth a pick towards the last few rounds of deep NL drafts depending on who wins the job. Stay tuned.

Phillies | Cliff Lee to DL

Fri, 01 Aug 2014 07:39:24 -0700

Philadelphia Phillies SP Cliff Lee (elbow) was placed on the 15-day disabled list with a pronator strain in his left elbow. P Cesar Jimenez was recalled from Triple-A Lehigh Valley.

Fantasy Tip: Lee's season could be in jeopardy, but place him on your DL for now. David Buchanan could take his rotation spot but is just a NL-only target for depth purposes.

Phillies | David Buchanan to start Saturday

Thu, 22 May 2014 13:14:57 -0700

Philadelphia Phillies SP David Buchanan will be called up to take the start Saturday, May 24.

Fantasy Tip: It's unclear if Buchanan will remain in the rotation until Cliff Lee (elbow) is ready to return, but he'll probably at least audition for the spot. He's strictly an NL-only commodity to start with, and his matchup against the Los Angeles Dodgers this weekend isn't too enticing.
