Phillies | Ryan Howard sitting out

Mon, 04 May 2015 12:43:45 -0700

Philadelphia Phillies 1B Ryan Howard is not in the starting lineup Monday, May 4.

Fantasy Tip: Howard ($2,600, 5.2% of cap) likely is sitting out since the team is facing a left-handed pitcher. Darin Ruf ($2,000, 4.0% of cap) will start at first base but is not a great option for FantasyScore.

Phillies | Ryan Howard can veto any trade

Sat, 02 May 2015 10:33:35 -0700

Philadelphia Phillies 1B Ryan Howard has gained 10-and-5 rights, meaning that he has accrued 10 years of service time at the major league level, the last five of which have been with the same team. This means that if the Phillies want to trade Howard, he will have to give his permission first and he can reject any deal.

Fantasy Tip: Given his lack of production and the amount of money remaining on his current contract, Howard ($2,600, 5.2% of cap) was difficult to move even before this clause kicked in. He is only batting .187 with four home runs and 10 RBIs through 21 games this season and is still owed $60 million.

Phillies | Ryan Howard at cleanup

Thu, 30 Apr 2015 10:25:59 -0700

Philadelphia Phillies 1B Ryan Howard is hitting cleanup against a left-handed starter Thursday, April 30.

Fantasy Tip: Howard ($2,600, 5.2% of your cap) connected on a long ball yesterday, but he hit just .200 from 2012-2014 against lefties. We'd pass on FantasyScore today, but he could present a great value against righties.

Phillies | Ryan Howard crushes Cards again

Wed, 29 Apr 2015 22:51:46 -0700

Philadelphia Phillies 1B Ryan Howard, batting out of the fifth spot of the order, went 1-for-4 with a solo homer Wednesday, April 29, against the St. Louis Cardinals. He has 20 home runs and 39 RBIs in 33 career games against the Cardinals, with 11 homers coming in his hometown of St. Louis.

Fantasy Tip: At just $2,600 (or 5.2% of cap) Howard can still be a huge bargain for FantasyScore players, especially when his team pulls into his hometown again.

Phillies | Ryan Howard finding power stroke

Sun, 26 Apr 2015 17:30:13 -0700

Philadelphia Phillies 1B Ryan Howard went 1-for-4 with a three-run home run in a 5-4 win over the Atlanta Braves Sunday, April 26, and all three of his home runs this season have come in his last five games.

Fantasy Tip: After managing just two RBIs in his first 11 games, Howard ($2,600, 5.2% of cap) has seven in his last five games. He could keep the momentum going when Philadelphia opens up a series against St. Louis Monday, April 27. He is hitting .362 in 57 career games against the Cardinals and offers nice upside for the price at FantasyScore.

Braves | Andrelton Simmons okay after collision

Fri, 24 Apr 2015 19:52:44 -0700

Atlanta Braves SS Andrelton Simmons stayed in the game after taking a hard bump from Philadelphia Phillies 1B Ryan Howard Friday, April 24.

Fantasy Tip: Simmons ($2,300, 4.6% of cap) saw his seven-game hitting streak snapped Friday, and he is still looking for his first home run of the year. If you are going to take a chance on a cheaper shortstop at FantasyScore, it is a good idea to choose someone with a little more upside than what Simmons has shown so far this season.

Phillies | Ryan Howard out Thursday

Thu, 23 Apr 2015 07:21:52 -0700

Philadelphia Phillies 1B Ryan Howard is out of the lineup Thursday, April 23, against the New York Mets.

Fantasy Tip: Darin Ruf ($2,000, 4.0% of your cap) is in there against Bartolo Colon, but he's just 3-for-30 (.100) to open the season. Avoid him on FantasyScore.

Phillies | Ryan Howard dropped in lineup

Thu, 16 Apr 2015 12:46:44 -0700

Philadelphia Phillies 1B Ryan Howard has been dropped to seventh in the batting order against the Washington Nationals Thursday, April 16.

Fantasy Tip: Howard ($2,600, 5.2% of cap) is off to a .148 (4-for-27) start to the 2015 season with no home runs and just one RBI. During a cold start to the year, and now that he's been dropped in the order, we recommend avoiding Howard at FantasyScore for the time being.

Phillies | Ryan Howard may be in platoon

Thu, 16 Apr 2015 09:23:48 -0700

Philadelphia Phillies 1B Ryan Howard has sat out twice in nine games against left-handed pitchers. 1B Darin Ruf has been in against the lefties, but he is just 1-for-17 (.059) on the season.

Fantasy Tip: Howard ($2,600, 5.2% of your cap) is hitting just .148 with no homers in 27 at-bats. He's at a huge discount if he finds his power stroke. Howard has started slowly the last three years with a .266-8-30 line in 188 April at-bats. He's a matchup play on FantasyScore, and Ruf should be avoided right now.

Phillies | Ryan Howard sitting out

Wed, 15 Apr 2015 12:42:00 -0700

Philadelphia Phillies 1B Ryan Howard is not in the starting lineup against the New York Mets Wednesday, April 15.

Fantasy Tip: Howard ($2,600, 5.2% of cap) is receiving the day off since the team is facing a left-handed starter. Darin Ruf ($2,000, 4.0% of cap) will be starting at first base but may not be a great option on FantasyScore since he has only one hit in 14 at-bats this season.
