Philadelphia Phillies OF John Mayberry Jr. is starting over OF Laynce Nix in the outfield on opening day Monday, April 1, because manager Charlie Manuel likes Mayberry's approach against Atlanta Braves SP Tim Hudson. Manuel's decision on the platoon in right field will be made based on matchups, the type of pitcher starting and recent performances.
Fantasy Tip: Both players will cannabalize each other's PT, making them only valuable in deep NL leagues. Mayberry should be your first target of the two.

Philadelphia Phillies OF Darin Ruf struck out three times in an exhibition game against the Dominican Republic Tuesday, March 5, and he also continued to struggle with his defense in the outfield. Ruf is currently 3-for-23 with one extra-base hit this spring. "That's probably got something to do with his hitting," manager Charlie Manuel said. "He's trying too hard right now and things are not going good for him. He'll be all right. He is going to get some more hits. He's fine. He's not going to go his whole life with all collars." OFs John Mayberry Jr. and Laynce Nix are an alternative to Ruf in left field to start the season.

The Philadelphia Phillies will likely enter spring training with an outfield consisting of Ben Revere, Domonic Brown, John Mayberry Jr., Darin Ruf, and Laynce Nix. "We're likely going with what we've got," general manager Ruben Amaro Jr. said. Amaro may change his mind for a low-risk veteran outfielder to join the system, as the club still has about $7 million of its projected $178 million payroll to spend.

The Philadelphia Phillies continue to search for a veteran corner outfielder. Philadelphia has been going after free-agent OF Scott Hairston (Mets) and are pursuing a trade for Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim OF Vernon Wells. The Angels would need to eat most of Wells' remaining salary for the trade to be a fit. If no more outfielders are acquired, the team will enter spring training with OFs Domonic Brown, John Mayberry Jr., Darin Ruf and Laynce Nix on the corner spots.
