Phillies | Ryan Howard belts grand slam

Thu, 07 Aug 2014 19:22:32 -0700

Philadelphia Phillies 1B Ryan Howard hit a go-ahead grand slam in the eighth inning Thursday, Aug. 7.

Fantasy Tip: Howard now has two home runs and eight RBIs in his last three games, and while his average remains at a dreadful .220, he does have 18 home runs and 71 RBIs. If you are desperate for power numbers and don't mind the hit to your average, Howard could be worth scooping up, especially in NL-only formats.

Phillies | Ryan Howard starting versus lefty

Tue, 05 Aug 2014 11:41:49 -0700

Philadelphia Phillies 1B Ryan Howard is starting against a left-handed pitcher Tuesday, Aug. 5, Houston Astros SP Dallas Keuchel.

Fantasy Tip: Howard is surprisingly hitting better against lefties this year (.229) than righties (.211), but he's still a very weak play in daily leagues tonight, even if Keuchel has cooled off since his nice first half.

Phillies | Marlon Byrd starting, Ryan Howard sitting

Thu, 31 Jul 2014 12:20:30 -0700

Philadelphia Phillies OF Marlon Byrd is in the starting lineup Thursday, July 31, against the Washington Nationals. 1B Darin Ruf is starting at first base against the Nationals left-handed SP Gio Gonzalez, instead of 1B Ryan Howard.

Fantasy Tip: With Byrd in the lineup, it is unlikely he is traded before the non-waiver deadline today. Ryne Sandberg appears to be sticking to his platoon at first base. Howard's dwindling fantasy stock will continue to fade, if he continues to sit against left-handed pitchers. Ruf is worth owning in NL-only leagues, as long as he is getting semi-regular at-bats.

Phillies | Market quiet for big names

Mon, 28 Jul 2014 14:42:00 -0700

Philadelphia Phillies SPs Cliff Lee and A.J. Burnett, RP Jonathan Papelbon, and 1B Ryan Howard haven't attracted much serious interest in trade talks. Howard and Lee have almost no market, and Burnett and Papelbon's allure has been limited. The latter two have unattractive player options that are limiting interest. All four may be candidates for an August trade after the non-waiver deadline passes.

Fantasy Tip: Philly's efforts to blow things up aren't going so well, and fantasy players may have to wait a few more weeks for significant changes to happen.
