Phillies | Adam Morgan tosses quality start

Fri, 03 Jul 2015 19:38:22 -0700

Philadelphia Phillies SP Adam Morgan (1-1) allowed two runs on five hits over seven innings in a loss to the Atlanta Braves Friday, July 3. He walked two and struck out five.

Fantasy Tip: Morgan ($3,000, 6.0% of cap) has pitched well in both of his major league starts but faces a difficult task in his next outing Wednesday, July 8, when he is scheduled to face Clayton Kershaw and the Los Angeles Dodgers. Avoid using him in FantasyScore next week.

Phillies | Cody Asche playing well

Thu, 02 Jul 2015 20:29:15 -0700

Philadelphia Phillies 3B Cody Asche went 3-for-5 with a home run, two RBI, two runs scored and a walk in an 8-7 loss to the Milwaukee Brewers Thursday, July 2, and he has raised his average from .229 to .254 over the last 10 games.

Fantasy Tip: Asche ($2,500, 5.0% of cap) has hit safely in nine of his last 10 games and has five multi-hit games over the same span. He doesn't have a lot of upside, but for the price, he could make a decent source of cap relief at FantasyScore while he is swinging a hot bat.

Phillies | No Carlos Ruiz Thursday

Thu, 02 Jul 2015 12:24:20 -0700

Philadelphia Phillies C Carlos Ruiz is not in the starting lineup Thursday, July 2. C Cameron Rupp is starting and hitting eighth against Milwaukee Brewers SP Matt Garza.

Fantasy Tip: Rupp ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) should never excite FantasyScore users very much as a sleeper catching option, even against the Brew Crew and Garza.

Phillies | Ben Revere sitting out Thursday

Thu, 02 Jul 2015 12:07:01 -0700

Philadelphia Phillies OF Ben Revere is not in the starting lineup Thursday, July 2. OF Odubel Herrera is starting in center field and hitting leadoff against Milwaukee Brewers SP Matt Garza.

Fantasy Tip: Herrera ($3,200, 6.4% of cap) is a low-end flyer as a sleeper on FantasyScore as he draws the start today. Herrera is only hitting .250 (45-for-180) against right-handers this year but does have both of his home runs against them.

Phillies | Aaron Harang to DL

Thu, 02 Jul 2015 10:29:16 -0700

Philadelphia Phillies SP Aaron Harang (foot) was placed on the 15-day disabled list with plantar fasciitis in his left foot Thursday, July 2. SP Chad Billingsley (shoulder) was activated from the DL in a corresponding move.

Fantasy Tip: Harang ($5,700, 11.4% of cap) had fallen on hard times of late, losing eight straight and allowing 59 hits and 36 earned runs in 46 2/3 innings over that time frame. He was due for serious regression after a nice first month and a half of the season. Only hang onto him in the deepest of NL-only leagues.

Phillies | Maikel Franco starts July with a bang

Wed, 01 Jul 2015 19:27:42 -0700

Philadelphia Phillies 3B Maikel Franco went 3-for-4 with three doubles, a walk and a run scored in a 9-5 loss to the Milwaukee Brewers Wednesday, July 1.

Fantasy Tip: Franco ($5,300, 10.6% of cap) had eight home runs and 24 RBI in June, and he picked right up where he left off. The 22-year-old probably can't keep up his current pace, but in the meantime, he is worth a look at FantasyScore whenever he draws a decent matchup.

Phillies | Domonic Brown sitting out

Wed, 01 Jul 2015 11:28:34 -0700

Philadelphia Phillies OF Domonic Brown is not in the starting lineup Wednesday, July 1. OF Odubel Herrera is starting in center field and hitting seventh against Milwaukee Brewers SP Kyle Lohse.

Fantasy Tip: Herrera ($3,200, 6.4% of cap) has been a FantasyScore afterthought for a while now and has lost a starting spot in the outfield. He could be a sleeper play worth considering, though. Lohse has been much better away from Miller Park this year, but he still has a 4.37 ERA on the road and has allowed at least three earned runs in four of his last five starts.

Phillies | Cesar Hernandez might be everyday 2B

Tue, 30 Jun 2015 18:52:07 -0700

Philadelphia Phillies 2B Cesar Hernandez has done such an admirable job filling in for 2B Chase Utley (ankle) that he could be the everyday second baseman even when Utley returns. "I would like to think Cesar has proven that he deserves a chance to be the everyday second baseman," manager Pete Mackanin said Tuesday, June 30. "That remains to be seen. I don't know. I don't want to get ahead of myself. Let's just wait to see when Chase is healthy and how he feels and we'll go from there."

Fantasy Tip: Hernandez is hitting .436 (17-for-39) with four doubles, seven RBIs and a 1.016 OPS overh is past 10 games, while Utley posted a .179 average with a .532 OPS in 249 plate appearances before his injury. Hernandez ($2,100; or 4.2% of cap) is a stud in FantasyScore at this price level while he is running hot.

Phillies | Pete Mackanin named manager

Tue, 30 Jun 2015 13:37:57 -0700

Philadelphia Phillies interim manager Pete Mackanin will manage the team for the remainder of the 2015 season.

Fantasy Tip: The overhaul of this team isn't quite finished yet, but the Phillies are looking for stability and this may help younger players like Maikel Franco ($5,300, 10.6% of cap) and Cody Asche ($2,500, 5.0% of cap) adjust to a new era in Philadelphia.

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.
