Phillies | Aaron Altherr batting third against Friars

Fri, 28 Aug 2015 12:44:16 -0700

Philadelphia Phillies OF Aaron Altherr is batting third against San Diego Padres SP Ian Kennedy Friday, Aug. 28. OF Domonic Brown is not in the starting lineup Friday.

Fantasy Tip: It is the first game Altherr ($2,200, 4.4% of cap) has started against a right-handed pitcher, and he checks out as a potential low-price flier for FantasyScore players Friday. Just note it isn't a great matcup, as Kennedy ($8,100, 16.2% of cap) has allowed three runs or fewer in 14 of his past 15 starts and owns a 2.63 ERA during the stretch. At this point, Brown ($3,900, 7.8% of cap) is nothing more than a desperation play in all fantasy formats, and you should aim higher.

Phillies | Jeff Francoeur draws into lineup

Thu, 27 Aug 2015 12:14:40 -0700

Philadelphia Phillies OF Jeff Francoeur is starting in right field and batting fourth against New York Mets SP Jon Niese Thursday, Aug. 27. OF Domonic Brown is not in the starting lineup Thursday.

Fantasy Tip: Francoeur ($3,200, 6.4% of cap) has been drawing in against lefties frequently of late but owns an underwhelming .664 OPS against them. In fact, he is better against righties. Still, Francoeur is a viable value play at FantasyScore Thursday. Make sure to avoid Brown Thursday. The streaky outfielder owns a .182/.262/.345 slash line in August, and you should likely be aiming higher in all fantasy formats.

Phillies | Darin Ruf starting vs. lefty

Thu, 27 Aug 2015 12:06:51 -0700

Philadelphia Phillies 1B Darin Ruf is starting at first base and batting sixth against New York Mets SP Jon Niese Thursday, Aug. 27. 1B Ryan Howard is not in the starting lineup Thursday.

Fantasy Tip: Against southpaws, Ruf ($2,000, 4.0% of cap) has a .366/.434/.549 slash line through 83 plate appearances this season. He is a viable low-priced option at FantasyScore Thursday. Howard ($3,800, 7.6% of cap) has been sneaky good of late with 17 RBI and a .304/.345/.519 slash line over his past 21 games. He could help down the stretch for seasonal teams chasing in home runs and RBI.

Phillies | Freddy Galvis dropped in the order

Thu, 27 Aug 2015 12:00:51 -0700

Philadelphia Phillies SS Freddy Galvis is batting eighth against New York Mets SP Jon Niese Thursday, Aug. 27.

Fantasy Tip: Galvis ($3,800, 7.6% of cap) has been batting second in the order the past three games, but Andres Blanco ($1,900, 3.8% of cap) shifts back to the two-hole Thursday. It doesn't have a huge impact on Blanco who is a low-end flier at FantasyScore Thursday, but Galvis takes a huge value hit batting in front of the pitcher. You can avoid Galvis in daily contests Thursday.

Phillies | Maikel Franco likely to return

Wed, 26 Aug 2015 20:36:38 -0700

Philadelphia Phillies 3B Maikel Franco (wrist) is expected to return to action later this season, according to interim manager Pete Mackanin.

Fantasy Tip: About a week ago, it appeared as though Franco ($5,000, 10.0% of cap) might be finished for the season, so this is good news for fantasy owners. Andres Blanco ($1,900, 3.8% of cap) will continue to receive most of the starts at the hot corner for the Phils until he returns.

Phillies | Cesar Hernandez receiving a breather

Wed, 26 Aug 2015 11:34:31 -0700

Philadelphia Phillies 2B Cesar Hernandez is not in the starting lineup Wednesday, Aug. 26. SS Darnell Sweeney is starting at second base and hitting leadoff against New York Mets SP Bartolo Colon.

Fantasy Tip: The switch-hitting Sweeney ($2,100, 4.2% of cap) has an intriguing mix of speed and power, and he had nine home runs and 32 stolen bases in the minors for the Dodgers before coming over in the Chase Utley trade. Hitting leadoff is great for his daily value, and Colon has struggled mightily on the road. Consider Sweeney a great choice as a deep sleeper on FantasyScore today.

Phillies | Maikel Franco takes grounders

Tue, 25 Aug 2015 22:50:57 -0700

Philadelphia Phillies 3B Maikel Franco (wrist) was able to grounders before the game Tuesday, Aug. 25, against the New York Mets. However, no timetable has been set for Franco's return.

Fantasy Tip: Franco ($5,000, 10.0% of cap) should be avoided in FantasyScore until he can officially return and prove his health in back-to-back games without any setbacks.

Phillies | Cameron Rupp out of Tuesday lineup

Tue, 25 Aug 2015 12:37:29 -0700

Philadelphia Phillies C Cameron Rupp is not in the starting lineup Tuesday, Aug. 25, against the New York Mets. C Carlos Ruiz is batting eighth against Mets SP Noah Syndergaard.

Fantasy Tip: Rupp ($2,800, 5.6% of cap) has slowly gained more playing time over Ruiz, thanks mainly to a .438 batting average in the last week and a .249-6-17 season line. Rupp has played the past four days, so this looks like a normal night off to get Ruiz ($2,800, 5.6% of cap) some time. Ruiz has a .198 average at Citizens Bank Park, but he is hitting .375 in the last week.

Phillies | Cameron Rupp homers to extend streak

Mon, 24 Aug 2015 21:56:21 -0700

Philadelphia Phillies C Cameron Rupp went 1-for-3 with a solo home run and a walk Monday, Aug. 24, against the New York Mets to push his hitting streak to eight games.

Fantasy Tip: Rupp ($2,800, 5.6% of cap) is an impressive 11-for-27 (.407) with three homers and six RBIs over his solid hitting streak. When he is in the lineup he is a must-start FantasyScore option since he is providing solid power and high average for a low price.

Phillies | Jeff Francoeur remaining in Philly

Mon, 24 Aug 2015 14:44:04 -0700

Philadelphia Phillies OF Jeff Francoeur was recently claimed on waivers and then pulled back by Philadelphia. He cannot be traded in August.

Fantasy Tip: Francoeur ($3,200, 6.4% of cap) is having a respectable season with a .271 batting average and 12 home runs over just 265 plate appearances. He deserves attention at FantasyScore when in the lineup against favorable starting pitchers, too. Still, the 31-year-old veteran should be reserved for NL-only and cavernous mixed leagues in seasonal formats.

Phillies | Odubel Herrera will not start

Sun, 23 Aug 2015 09:06:52 -0700

Philadelphia Phillies OF Odubel Herrera is not in the starting lineup against Miami Marlins SP Adam Conley Sunday, Aug. 23. OF Darnell Sweeney will start in center field and is batting sixth in the lineup.

Fantasy Tip: Herrera ($3,700, 7.4% of cap) should return to the starting lineup in the next game or two. Sweeney has gone 1-for-3 with a home run since joining the team but should not be a starting fantasy option at this point.

Phillies | Ryan Howard sitting again

Sun, 23 Aug 2015 09:06:11 -0700

Philadelphia Phillies 1B Ryan Howard is not in the starting lineup against Miami Marlins SP Adam Conley Sunday, Aug. 23. OF Darin Ruf will start at first base and is batting fifth in the lineup.

Fantasy Tip: Howard ($4,100, 8.2% of cap) has not been in the lineup much this past week because the team has been facing several left-handed pitchers. Ruf ($2,000, 4.0% of cap) has picked up an RBI in each of the last three games but is not the best option for owners on FantasyScore.

Phillies | Andres Blanco playing well

Sat, 22 Aug 2015 19:32:23 -0700

Philadelphia Phillies 2B Andres Blanco went 2-for-4 with two doubles, an RBI and a walk in a 4-2 win over the Miami Marlins Saturday, Aug. 22.

Fantasy Tip: Blanco ($1,900, 3.8% of cap) has hit safely in six of his last seven games, and he has three home runs and seven runs scored during the stretch. His average up to .302, and he is worth a look as a source of cap relief at FantasyScore.

Phillies | Ryan Howard out against lefty

Sat, 22 Aug 2015 14:20:50 -0700

Philadelphia Phillies 1B Ryan Howard is out of the lineup Saturday, Aug. 22, with 1B Darin Ruf hitting sixth.

Fantasy Tip: Ruf ($2,000, 4.0% of cap) has a .391-3-10 split in 64 at-bats against lefties this year. He's a good basement start against lefty Justin Nicolino on FantasyScore.

Phillies | Jerad Eickhoff solid in debut

Fri, 21 Aug 2015 19:29:18 -0700

Philadelphia Phillies SP Jerad Eickhoff won in his major league debut, allowing five hits and striking out five over six innings against the Miami Marlins Friday, Aug. 21.

Fantasy Tip: Eickhoff came over in the Cole Hamels deal, and if he sticks in the rotation, he could be worth a look as a sleeper at FantasyScore when he is added to the player pool.
