Phillies | Chad Billingsley to start Thursday

Mon, 29 Jun 2015 21:35:32 -0700

Philadelphia Phillies SP Chad Billingsley (shoulder) will come off the 15-day disabled list to start Thursday, July 2, against the Milwaukee Brewers.

Fantasy Tip: Billingsley ($3,300; or 6.6% of cap) is 0-2 with a 6.75 ERA in three starts this season. He is unable to stay healthy, and when he has pitched he hasn't been very good. Avoid him in FantasyScore until he starts to show some consistency.

Phillies | Carlos Ruiz not playing Monday

Mon, 29 Jun 2015 13:19:34 -0700

Philadelphia Phillies C Carlos Ruiz is not in the starting lineup Monday, June 29. C Cameron Rupp is starting and hitting seventh against Milwaukee Brewers SP Jimmy Nelson.

Fantasy Tip: Rupp ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) doesn't have much offensive upside for the Phillies, and he should be considered a low-end catching option on FantasyScore this evening. Rupp has just one home run and six RBI in 95 at-bats this year.

Phillies | Maikel Franco snaps skid

Sun, 28 Jun 2015 17:14:29 -0700

Philadelphia Phillies 3B Maikel Franco snapped a 0-for-10 slump, going 3-for-9 with three RBI and two runs scored combined in a doubleheader against the Washington Nationals Sunday, June 28.

Fantasy Tip: Franco ($4,900, 9.8% of cap) had piled up three homers and 10 RBI in the two games prior to the slump, and while the occasional skid can be expected from the youngster, he is showing enough upside to use him at FantasyScore against friendly matchups.

Phillies | Domonic Brown out again

Sun, 28 Jun 2015 06:59:27 -0700

Philadelphia Phillies OF Domonic Brown is out of the starting lineup for the second day in a row Sunday, July 28, against the Washington Nationals and RHP Stephen Strasburg. OF Jeff Francoeur will start in right field and hit fifth in the order.

Fantasy Tip: Francoeur ($2,100, 4.2% of cap) has just one hit in his last 15 plate appearances, and he should be left alone on FantasyScore.

Phillies | Ben Revere likes warm weather

Sat, 27 Jun 2015 19:08:48 -0700

Philadelphia Phillies OF Ben Revere is hitting .374 in June, and he said that it is tough for him to play in the cooler months of April and May when he is a .243 hitter for his career.

Fantasy Tip: Revere ($3,400, 6.8% of cap) has 11 hits and seven runs scored in his last five games alone, and he has 40 runs scored and 18 steals for the year. He makes a solid No. 3 outfielder at FantasyScore while he is swinging a hot bat.

Phillies | Severino Gonzalez starting Sunday

Sat, 27 Jun 2015 14:51:59 -0700

Philadelphia Phillies SP Severino Gonzalez will come up from Class AAA Lehigh Valley to start Sunday, June 28, in Game 2 of a doubleheader against the Washington Nationals.

Fantasy Tip: Gonzalez's ceiling is limited. Give him a start to show something before using him on FantasyScore.

Phillies | Domonic Brown not in the lineup

Sat, 27 Jun 2015 09:25:33 -0700

Philadelphia Phillies OF Domonic Brown is not in the starting lineup against Washington Nationals SP Gio Gonzalez Saturday, June 27. OF Jeff Francoeur will start in right field and is batting fourth in the lineup.

Fantasy Tip: The team is facing a left-handed pitcher, which probably is why Brown is not in the lineup. Francoeur ($2,100, 4.2% of cap) has recorded only one hit in his last six games and is not a great option for owners on FantasyScore.

Phillies | Ryan Howard sitting out

Sat, 27 Jun 2015 08:59:29 -0700

Philadelphia Phillies 1B Ryan Howard is not in the starting lineup against Washington Nationals SP Gio Gonzalez Saturday, June 27. 3B Maikel Franco will start at first base and is batting third, while SS Andres Blanco will start at third base and is batting sixth.

Fantasy Tip: Howard ($3,900, 7.8% of cap) likely is sitting out because the team is facing a left-handed pitcher. Franco ($4,900, 9.8% of cap) has recorded 13 hits and 11 RBI in his last seven games and should be a starting option on FantasyScore. Blanco ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) has six RBI in his last three games and is hitting .292 in limited playing time in June, but owners may be able to find better options.

Phillies | Ben Revere sitting vs. Nats

Fri, 26 Jun 2015 14:28:30 -0700

Philadelphia Phillies OF Ben Revere is not in the starting lineup Friday, June 26. OF Odubel Herrera is playing center field and leading off against Washington Nationals SP Max Scherzer Friday.

Fantasy Tip: Against Scherzer, there is no reason to turn to Herrera ($3,200, 6.4% of cap) at FantasyScore Friday. Revere ($3,400, 6.8% of cap) is posting another solid fantasy season in the stolen base (18) and batting average (.292) category, and he remains a solid low-end option in all leagues.

Phillies | Ryne Sandberg resigns

Fri, 26 Jun 2015 12:39:30 -0700

Philadelphia Phillies manager Ryne Sandberg resigned from his position Friday, June 26, the club announced.

Fantasy Tip: Sandberg wasn't provided a strong stable to work with, and his 119-159 record as manager of the Phillies indicates it. His stepping down has minimal implications for fantasy players, as outside Maikel Franco there isn't a lot to be excited about in Philadelphia, especially with Cole Hamels and Jonathan Papelbon likely on their way out via trades.

Phillies | Cole Hamels roughed up by Yanks

Wed, 24 Jun 2015 14:55:38 -0700

Philadelphia Phillies SP Cole Hamels allowed five runs and eight hits while walking three in five innings in a loss to the New York Yankees Wednesday, June 24, after missing his previous start with a strained right hamstring. Hamels wasn't helped by the defense behind him, either. The Phillies have failed to score in seven of Hamels' 15 starts this year, and they've been shut out in 32 of his last 33 innings.

Fantasy Tip: Hamels ($9,000, 18.0% of cap) certainly didn't put his best foot forward in a possible audition for one of his trade suitors today in the Yankees. He was a shaky FantasyScore play at a high price going in after missing his last start due to injury. Expect Hamels to bounce back.

Phillies | Andres Blanco getting a chance

Wed, 24 Jun 2015 07:51:38 -0700

Philadelphia Phillies SS Andres Blanco is hitting sixth Wednesday, June 24, and playing third base against New York Yankees SP Ivan Nova.

Fantasy Tip: Blanco ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) is 3-for-5 with a homer and six RBI the last two games. It's a very small sample size, but if you're into rolling the dice, here's a chance on FantasyScore.

Phillies | Cesar Hernandez collects three hits

Tue, 23 Jun 2015 22:40:25 -0700

Philadelphia Phillies 2B Cesar Hernandez made the start Tuesday, June 23, against the New York Yankees. He had a double and two singles with two runs scored and an RBI in four at-bats.

Fantasy Tip: Hernandez ($2,100; or 4.2% of cap) is likely to see regular at-bats now that Chase Utley (ankle) has landed on the 15-day disabled list. At this low price Hernandez is a decent addition in FantasyScore as a salary saver.

Phillies | Chase Utley lands on DL

Tue, 23 Jun 2015 22:39:54 -0700

The Philadelphia Phillies placed 2B Chase Utley (ankle) on the 15-day disabled list Tuesday, June 23, due to a right ankle injury. He will receive a cortisone shot Wednesday, June 24, and will hope rest will relieve his pain.

Fantasy Tip: With Utley on the mend, Cesar Hernandez is likely to take over regular duties at second base. Hernandez ($2,100; or 4.2% of cap) might be a decent short-term add in FantasyScore since he'll see regular at-bats.

Phillies | Five more RBIs for Maikel Franco

Tue, 23 Jun 2015 22:37:49 -0700

Philadelphia Phillies 3B Maikel Franco went 2-for-3 with a double, home run, five RBIs and two runs scored Tuesday, June 23, against the New York Yankees.

Fantasy Tip: Franco ($4,900; or 9.8% of cap) has managed 10 RBIs over the past two games, and he has 10 homers since May 17. Needless to say, he is amped for his first career action at Yankee Stadium and is worth using in FantasyScore for the series finale Wednesday.
