Phillies | Aaron Nola snaps winless drought

Thu, 28 Jul 2016 20:59:46 -0700

Philadelphia Phillies SP Aaron Nola won for the first time in eight starts, allowing three runs on eight hits while walking three and striking out five over five innings against the Atlanta Braves Thursday, July 28.

Fantasy Tip: Even in the win, Nola wasn't exactly dominant. He can't seem to recapture the form he displayed early in the year, and he is strictly a matchup play in deeper mixed leagues at this point.

Phillies | Big return for Aaron Altherr

Thu, 28 Jul 2016 20:44:55 -0700

Philadelphia Phillies OF Aaron Altherr went 3-for-4 with a home run, two RBI and two runs scored in his season debut in a 7-5 win over the Atlanta Braves Thursday, July 28.

Fantasy Tip: Grab Altherr in NL-only leagues for now, and keep an eye on him moving forward. He could help in deeper mixed formats down the stretch.

Phillies | Peter Bourjos goes to disabled list

Thu, 28 Jul 2016 18:12:42 -0700

Philadelphia Phillies OF Peter Bourjos (shoulder) has been placed on the 15-day disabled list with a right shoulder sprain.

Fantasy Tip: At this point in his career, Bourjos is more of a defensive specialist than anything else. Even when he gets back, he may struggle to find playing time with Aaron Altherr returning from injury. As a result, Bourjos will find himself on the bench more often than not when he's healthy again.

Phillies | Aaron Altherr activated from DL

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

Philadelphia Phillies OF Aaron Altherr (wrist) has been activated from the disabled list.

Fantasy Tip: Altherr flashed some notable potential last year as a rookie, so his return to the Phillies should at least draw the attention of owners in deep leagues. Based on how well he fared in his minor league rehab assignment, he could ultimately end up contributing in standard formats, too.

Phillies | Nick Williams cuts down on K's

Thu, 28 Jul 2016 07:46:51 -0700

Philadelphia Phillies OF Nick Williams has struck out nine times in his last 67 plate appearances, and he has 90 strikeouts in 395 plate appearances on the year at Class AAA Lehigh Valley. Over the last 70 games, he has hit .289 with 26 doubles and eight homers. Williams has played a lot of left field, where he's expected to play when he's called up.

Fantasy Tip: Williams is expected to be called up over the next few weeks and should be a regular in the lineup. He's worth stashing in NL-only leagues, but he doesn't do one thing great in terms of fantasy.

Phillies | Zach Eflin roughed up by Marlins

Wed, 27 Jul 2016 15:43:56 -0700

Philadelphia Phillies SP Zach Eflin endured a rough outing Wednesday, July 27, against the Miami Marlins. The rookie right-hander went five innings, yielding seven runs on nine hits and four walks. He also only struck out one.

Fantasy Tip: Coming off his first career shutout, not to mention an impressive streak of six straight quality starts, Eflin was hit hard this afternoon for the first time since his major league debut several weeks ago in Toronto. His ERA jumped up from 3.40 to 4.23 as a result of this performance, so hopefully this doesn't hinder the 22-year-old's confidence going into his next assignment.

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 | Three Phils out Wednesday

Wed, 27 Jul 2016 06:52:42 -0700

Philadelphia Phillies OF Cody Asche, SS Freddy Galvis and OF Peter Bourjos (shoulder) are out of the lineup Wednesday, July 27. OF Tyler Goeddel, 2B Taylor Featherston and OF Jimmy Paredes are hitting sixth, seventh and eighth.

Fantasy Tip: You're really trying to catch lightning in a bottle if you're looking for a basement play here. Paredes has the most upside because of his work in Baltimore last year. However, he has a .207-2-8 line in 82 at-bats. He faces lefty Adam Conley today and is the only of the three to have some fantasy merit.

Phillies | No broken bones for Peter Bourjos

Tue, 26 Jul 2016 20:35:50 -0700

Updating a previous report, Philadelphia Phillies OF Peter Bourjos (shoulder) does not have any broken bones in his shoulder after leaving the game Tuesday, July 26, due to an injury. He expects to miss a few days. "I jammed it pretty good," Bourjos said.

Fantasy Tip: Avoid him in all NL-only fantasy leagues that allow daily transactions and in DFS play until he can officially return and prove his health in a full game without any setbacks.

Phillies | Peter Bourjos leaves game early

Tue, 26 Jul 2016 17:14:25 -0700

Philadelphia Phillies OF Peter Bourjos (undisclosed) left the game early Tuesday, July 26, because of an undisclosed injury.

Fantasy Tip: Owners will need to look for an update on Bourjos' status after the game or in the next day. Bourjos has value in NL-only leagues but probably should be avoided in mixed leagues.

Phillies | Tommy Joseph on the bench

Tue, 26 Jul 2016 12:38:16 -0700

Philadelphia Phillies 1B Tommy Joseph is not in the starting lineup against Miami Marlins SP Tom Koehler Tuesday, July 26. 1B Ryan Howard will start at first base and is batting fourth in the lineup.

Fantasy Tip: Howard has been playing better in July with a .250 batting average and three home runs in 13 games. Owners in daily fantasy leagues that need power could consider using him, but he probably should still be avoided in most leagues.

Phillies | Jerad Eickhoff to face Miami again

Mon, 25 Jul 2016 21:20:35 -0700

Philadelphia Phillies SP Jerad Eickhoff is scheduled to start Tuesday, July 26, against the Miami Marlins. He allowed six runs - five earned - and nine hits over five innings in his most recent start July 21 against the Marlins in Philadelphia.

Fantasy Tip: Eickhoff is 6-11 with a 3.98 ERA. He is a solid fantasy option in most deeper NL-only leagues for his work in the ERA and WHIP categories, but his lack of wins takes away from his appeal.

Phillies | Maikel Franco draws three walks

Mon, 25 Jul 2016 20:09:04 -0700

Philadelphia Phillies 3B Maikel Franco went 1-for-2 with a double, runs scored and three walks Monday, July 25, against the Miami Marlins.

Fantasy Tip: Franco is hitting .324 (24-for-74) in the month of July to raise his average from .243 to .260. He is a must-start fantasy option and he has a bright future.

Phillies | Jeremy Hellickson looks sharp

Mon, 25 Jul 2016 20:08:36 -0700

Philadelphia Phillies SP Jeremy Hellickson allowed one hit and one walk over six scoreless innings in a no-decision Monday, July 25, against the Miami Marlins. He threw 45 of his 70 pitches for strikes, working at least six innings for a ninth straight start.

Fantasy Tip: Hellickson is on the trade block, and Miami could be one of the destinations. He certainly improved his stock with this performance, and for that Philadelphia thanks him.

Phillies | Maikel Franco returns from injury

Mon, 25 Jul 2016 13:45:41 -0700

Philadelphia Phillies 3B Maikel Franco (wrist) is back in the starting lineup and is hitting third against Miami Marlins SP Jarred Cosart Monday, July 25.

Fantasy Tip: Franco's wrist injury wasn't too serious, as he only missed a few games. Get the young slugger back into all fantasy lineups. He's hitting a decent .259 with 18 long balls and 55 RBI on the season.
